They have been around for at least the past 30 years, "snake oil" usually doesn't last that long. Mine is probably 30 years old and it still works as advertised.

Water does not pass through the screen, but I didn't like the idea of letting it accumulate up the screen to "test" it. I emptied mine as it accumulated in the bottom of the funnel. The screen starts a little ways up from the bottom of the pedestal it is mounted in, and the pedestal (filter) plugs into the bottom of the center of the funnel.

I would buy another in a heartbeat if I needed to replace the one I have. It is of very durable construction if it's still made the way the one I have is.
