Survivor you for purchasing the Katadyn Survivor 35 desalinator It was designed and built to
rigorous by Katadyn Products Inc to provide fresh water in emergency situ
ations Please before operating the Survivor take the short time needed to read this Manual
This small investment of time will help assure many years of trouble free operation Be sure
to fill in the enclosed warranty card and return it to us as soon as possible This is required
to fulfill the terms of your Important Precautions
Avoid sucking in oil gasoline or other petroleum based products they will quickly destroy
the membrane
Avoid drawing water from a confined source As the salt concentration increases the unit will
become harder to pump
Do not adjust the relief valve This valve is preset in the factory Adjusting this valve can dam
age the pump and void your warranty
It is normal to detect a slight taste in the fresh water However do not drink water with a strong
salt flavor
The strainer may eventually clog and need rinsing If the unit is hard to pump either the strain
er is clogged or the water is unusually cold or salty
During prolonged emergency use pump the unit for at least 10 minutes each day to keep sea
water from stagnating inside the unit
If the unit will not be used again for several days remove any accessible seawater from it To
do so remove the intake strainer and hose from the feed water Turn the unit upside down and
pump the handle up and down normally until water stops coming out
After the unit has been used flush the membrane with biocide before storing it again This will
prevent the growth of bacteria inside the unit Refer to Storage below
If the feedwater has an high bacteria content use biocide daily
Store the biocide in a dry ventilated area
IMPORTANT For your safety we require that an inspection be completed once a year Our
regional service centers are trained to perform all necessary quality checks or you can return
the unit to Katadyn for The Survivor 35 is designed for use in emergency it has been used once under such conditions consult your dealer to
determine if any service is required
Product Survivor 35 is a simple hand operated watermaker able to produce over 30 gallons
105 liters of potable water per day from seawater
A semipermeable membrane inside the unit acts as a molecular filter When seawater is pressur
ized to 800 psi 55 bar by pumping the handle and forced against the membrane only the can pass through salt molecules are unable to pass and flow out
of the system
Reverse Osmosis
Salt rejection 984 on average 968 minimum The desalination degree effect depends
on different influence factors such as pressure throughput and the quality of

Membrane approved by the US FDA Food and Drug Operating Uncoil hoses Drop the hoses and attached strainer into the
seawater Be sure
strainer is fully submerged
2 Place desalinator across your lap Place one hand on handle grip and the other on the mem
brane housing as shown Figure 1 1
3 Pump handle up and down as far as it will go in each direction at a comfortable rate of speed
about 2 seconds per updown stroke After you pump for 1 2 minutes the pressure indicat
ing rod will extend itself revealing an orange band Continue pumping so the orange band
remains visible If water sprays from the indicator pump slower If orange band is not visible
pump faster
4 Once water drips from the freshwater hose pump at least 60 strokes two minutes while dump
ing the water overboard This will clear the system of biocide solution and salt that passes
through the membrane when not in use Then insert the freshwater hose into a storage container
or directly into your mouth
IMPORTANT At initial start up of a new unit or of an unit that has been inhibited filled with
biocide storage solution to inhibit biological growth dump the freshwater output for at least 60
strokes to clear the biocide solution from the system
5 Continue pumping until you get the desired amount of water
To get more water if you stop pumping temporarily repeat the above Survivor 35 is designed to operate under the following seawater conditions
Water Temperature 2 to 45 C 36 to 113F
Salinity 35000 ppm TDS average

Membrane Cleaning
The membrane does not have to be cleaned regularly However even in normal operation it become dirty or fouled with biological growth and particles
which are small enough to
pass through the build up on the surface of the membrane can cause the freshwater flow rate to be low or the
operating pressure to be high The most likely symptom will be discharge of seawater from the
relief valve on the pump body because of higher than normal operating
Under the above the membrane should be cleaned as described below Use
Katadyns Membrane Cleaning Kit article number 8013369 which consists of a special mem
brane cleaning housing and cleaning agents
Two types of cleaner are provided with the kit alkaline and acid The alkaline cleaner is used to
remove biological fouling oil or dirt the acid cleaner is used to remove mineral scaling Cleaning
with just the alkaline cleaner will usually restore the membranes performance However if low out
put or higher than normal pressure continues the acid cleaner should also be used
The procedure is the same for both cleaners Use the alkaline cleaner first following the If the acid cleaner is also required flush the system and
repeat the procedure with it

Figure 1 2
Cleaning Procedure
1 Mix four spoonfuls 40 g of the cleaning agent with one gallon approximate 4 liters of clean
freshwater in a clean pail The water should be warm but not hot maximum of 122 F
50 C Mix until the cleaner is completely dissolved
2 Grasp the membrane housing with both hands and turn until it can be
removed In its place install the special membrane cleaning housing provided with the kit
Screw the housing all the way on by hand but dont overtighten Place the suction strainer into
the pail of warm water
3 Pump the handle Discard the water coming from the discharge hose on the end of the clean
ing housing for about 30 seconds then place the return hose into the cleaning solution con
tainer Continue pumping the unit while for about 15 minutes
4 Stop pumping and allow the membrane to soak for at least an hour For severe fouling an
extended soak period of 10 to 15 hours may be desirable
5 After soaking pump the handle again Dump the first few pulses of solution that come immedi
ately from the discharge hose When the stream becomes cleaner place the hose back into the
pail of cleaning solution and recirculate for another 30 to 60 minutes
6 After cleaning flush by pumping warm freshwater through the system insert the alternate intake
hose into a pail of fresh water and run the discharge water from the cleaning housing to a
drain If fresh water is not available you may use seawater if it is above 68 F 20 C
7 Remove the cleaning housing and reinstall the normal membrane housing
If the unit wont be used for at least 7 days after cleaning follow the inhibiting instructions under Replacing the membrane
If the membrane element is damaged or can not be cleaned anymore please replace the element
using the Katadyn Membrane Replacement Kit article number 8012793 and follow the instruc
tions below
1 Grasp the membrane housing with both hands and turn until it can be
2 Remove the membrane element with a pulling and twisting motion
3 Clean the membrane housing with a warm mild detergent rinse with clean water wipe dry with
a lint free cloth
4 Lubricate the seals on the new element with a small amount of silicone lubricant
5 Insert the element into the pump front then push the reject tube assembly all the way into the element
6 Slide the housing over the element Screw it all the way into the pump collar by hand but do
not sure there is no gap between the pump collar and the thread stop on the membrane housing
