Topic: Inverted AP and Poly Filter (3 msgs / 90 lines)

Seth,
Basically you rinse the poly filter with hot water. Or, you can wash it out
with some liquid detergent and then super rinse. They last indefinitely. I
have used one countless times till it gets a hole from my rigorous rinse
routine regularly repeated -ha.
I have experimented with various filter materials to see what happens.
I've tried:
*SS metal screens (get an old fine screened sifter and cut into circle the
size of the paper filters--gives a very FP-like cup as maximum oils pass
through. Nearly never wears out.)
*cotton (from a new white promo T-shirt I'd never wear)
*Chemex filters (these work great-I even double up on these sometime to get
an ultra clean cup).
The Inv. Meth. lets you use filter media you couldn't use the regular way
because the water would pass through too quickly.
As for inverted configuration fitting under hot water gizmo: try it. When
using the inverted method, you don't sit the rig on the cup while filling
with hot water.

I remember reading a lot on the poly filters, a while back.  It's good to
hear first hand accounts of them working better than paper.  Do you just
rinse it out, afterwards?  How many uses per filter?
An advantage of the non-inverted method...at my work, the hot tap on the
office coffee maker does not have enough room under it for my mug + AP (and
it would be worse with an AP rigged for inverted method.  But, I can fill
the plunger with hot water (it even has convenient markings) and bring it to
my mug+AP on the counter. :)

I use the advice from Mark Prince on CG's article on syphon pots (vac pots)
regarding the cleaning of the cloth filter.  I rinse then soak for a while
in boiling water and oxy clean.  gets it wicked clean...  might look at
doing that on the poly... dunno...
