Can it be used in saltwater?

Vario will remove turbidity and biological contaminants but will not remove the salt.

What is the micron filtering size?

The Vario will filter down to .2 microns.

What is the correct replacement filter for this system called?

It is called the Vario replacement cartridge, part 8014933.

Does it filtered out chlorine?

We do not test for chemical removal. There is carbon in the core of the filter and we know that carbon reduces chemicals, but cannot tell you if it would remove all chlorine from a given water source.

Does it filter out water polluted by human pollutants, such as litter, runoff from highways? Also, would it protect me from ingesting parasites in the water?

The Vario will remove particles down to .2 microns, which includes prozotoa and bacteria. It would not address chemicals from runoff, but particles like bits of sand, yes.
