Filtration On The Go

I detest buying bottles of water, but refuse to drink unfiltered water. Yesterday I got the chance to put my new Aquasana Filtered Water Bottle to the travel-test.

Aquasana recently launched a filter water bottle. Our customers are always on the go- traveling for work and for fun.

The filter bottle arrived last week for our Kickstarter customers and we put it to the travel test. Here’s the story:

With The Clean Water Bottle you can filter water after security at the airport.

I was traveling with the family and had a tight connection. I had only a few minutes to get water. I saw a drinking fountain. Typically this would have repulsed me with visions of germs and contaminants flowing from that public fountain. But for the first time, I filled my bottle with 22 ounces of giddy anticipation. I knew that the pleated filter in my bottle would remove over 99% of bacteria, lead, chlorine, and cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia. I had just enough time to fill the bottle, take a picture, screw the top back on and run to my gate. As I sat on the every-seat-filled and very stuffy airplane, I pulled out my filter bottle and took a sip. The water tasted just as it does at home: clean, and delicious.

The Aquasana Clean Water Bottle was successfully funded last spring on Kickstarter. This product is the next step for Aquasana following decades of success in home-filtration products. We designed this for anyone who wants on-the-go filtration: athletes, business travelers, and busy parents. Simply fill the bottle with 22 ounces of tap water and drink. It is easy to use and actually works!

The Aquasana filter bottle is available in shatter-resistant borosilicate glass and in BPA-Free Tritan™ plastic to give options for all ages and all settings. All bottles come with a premium silicone sleeve, in five designer colors, to provide protection against breakage and a non-slip grip.

Plus, it boasts the longest-lasting filter on the market. The filter lasts for 80 gallons – the equivalent of 640 disposable plastic bottles. In an airport, or a theme park, or wherever your travels take you, you will literally never have to buy another bottle of water again.
