The Best Filtered Water Bottles



Glug, glug, glug! As you are probably used to hearing me say, WATER IS SO IMPORTANT! Not only is this amazing liquid good for our insides, it is good for our outsides too! It is the big H-2-O that keeps our systems clean, our minds refreshed, and our skin clear and healthy (bonus!)! Water is a basic necessity and without access to it our bodies would deteriorate. This is some serious stuff! It is found that water pollution can cause millions of deaths each year! The only thing to change this, is to give our bodies FILTERED water! Not all water can be trusted, and although it may come through your tap, it can still contain various bacteria and contaminants. When we put this bad water into our bodies, we suffer serious health issues because of it! But no longer! PERSONAL FILTERED WATER BOTTLES are the solution!

These amazing new water-carrying containers make it easy for you to go through your day and not have to worry about where the water came from or if it is clean or not. Now you can pour in ANY water you want and feel confident that you are drinking beautiful, crystal-clear, clean, and healthy water. Filtered water bottles have recently become a big hit (no wonder… they are amazing!) and numerous companies supply them as a healthy-living solution. But do you actually know which filtered water bottle is the best of them all? I have the answer for you! Take a look at these different filtered water bottles and check out which one is best!

Brita Bottle 

With a built-in filter, the Brita Bottle is one of the more popular filtered water bottles available! This portable water bottle can be filled at any tap to create a better water-drinking experience. The Brita Bottle is NSF certified to reduce the bad taste of chlorine and aim to filter out the impurities remaining in the water. The Brita Bottle claims to “reduce the following common impurities, and can even remove 96.6% of pharmaceuticals including Acetaminophen, Carbamazepine, Estradiol, Naproxen, and Progesterone.” It is important to replace the filter over time, so the Brita Bottle comes with a few reminder options: Electronic Filter Indicator, Standard Filter Indicator, and the Sticker Filter Indicator.

Value for Money Rating: 4/10

Features:

The Brita Bottle has the following features:
  • 590 mL
  • Soft-Squeeze Plastic
  • Carrying Loop
  • BPA Free
  • Dishwasher Safe

Reviews:

Customers appreciated the quick and easy option of water filtration that the Brita Bottle offers. This water bottle is the cheapest and therefore also comes with some possible problems such as leaking and the lid not going on properly. As well, some have found that when using the bottle, once the water level has reached below the filter, it is difficult to get out any liquid. Some even reported that they felt the filter did little to change the taste of the water. The Brita Bottle is one of the lower-quality filtered water bottles available, as the filter does not completely reduce the majority of contaminants found in water.

LifeStraw Go

Whereas some water bottles use an actual filter to clean your water, the LifeStraw Go water bottle uses a straw filter! This colorful water bottle is made to filter out water from wherever you go. Targeting those who go out into the wilderness, it is said that this bottle can even filter stream water, puddles, or any other water source you come across. Some of the bottles feature a carbon capsule to help reduce the amount of chlorine found in water, and as a result, make the water taste better. The product filters out water by using a “hollow fiber membrane micro filtration” system that is installed within the straw. The filter works to remove bacteria and viruses but LifeStraw does not remove contaminants that are already dissolved in the water.

Value for Money Rating: 7/10

Features:

The LifeStraw Go water bottle features:
  • 650 mL
  • Lightweight Bottle
  • Flip-Top Mouth Piece
  • BPA Free
  • Hand Wash Only

Reviews:

Many have found that the bottle is handy to keep with them when they are outdoors and away from filtered water options. The bottle is a durable design that customers claim works beautifully to clean the water they are unsure about (such as natural water sources). Although almost all reviews have mentioned that the bottle is designed well (with only a few mentioning that the bottle leaked after a few uses), there are some other issues people have identified. Some have mentioned that the chlorine taste of the water is not removed as claimed, leaving the unpleasant taste still in the water. Others were more concerned about the cost of the filters and that they are 2 separate pieces that need to be purchased. The water bottle is great to filter basic water, but some found that if you filtered very dirty water the filters would clog up quickly, leaving the bottle unusable.

Tritan Bottle by Santevia

The Santevia Tritan Bottle is one of the other filtered water bottles that is eco-friendly and great for those looking to stay hydrated on the go! The Santevia brand focuses on creating water that is in its ‘purest form.’ The company uses an alkaline water system that is said to help maintain the body’s pH levels, which will in turn promote healthy living and increasing your energy. The bottle is a stand-alone product and separate filters are a necessary purchase to clean the water. There are three separate types of filter sticks available to buy. There is the Power Stick, the Recovery Stick, and the Alkaline Stick – all working to improve the taste of your water while adding various benefits.

Value for Money Rating: 7/10

Features:

The Tritan Bottle by Santevia features:
  • 600 mL
  • Eco-Friendly
  • BPA Free
  • Hormone Free
  • Shatter and Scratch Resistant
  • Dishwasher Safe

Reviews:

The Santevia filtered water bottle is a different approach to filtered water, as the brand works to remove chlorine but also to add other things to your water. The alkaline and pH benefits are aimed towards athletes hoping to get excess energy so they can workout longer, but the product is for everyone. Customers have reviewed that they like the product and it is easy to take with them everywhere. The bottle and filters are fairly priced, so purchasing replacement filters is not a complaint. However, the product does not directly use a filter to clean the water that you are drinking. Instead it uses a chemical process to CHANGE the water you are drinking. The specialized filters are used to ADD solutions to your water to improve your health, but compared to other filtered water bottles, this bottle does not filter out all the contaminants found in water.

Bobble Bottle

The Bobble Bottle is another filtered bottle option that can create a better water-experience! There are a variety of Bobble Bottle’s but a popular option is the Classic Bobble Bottle (which is available in two different sizes). The Classic Bobble Bottle uses a carbon filter that has a “slight electro-positive charge, making it attractive to certain chemicals.” With this charged filter, the water is reduced of chemicals such as chlorine to help improve the taste of your water. This reusable bottle is perfect to bring with you throughout your day and to improve the water accessed from the tap. Filters are said to last roughly 2 months and require little to no maintenance for daily use.

Value for Money Rating: 6/10

Features:

The Bobble Bottle has the following features:
  • 1000 mL or 547 mL Options Available
  • BPA Free
  • Soft-Touch Carry Cap
  • Dishwasher Safe
  • Leak-Proof

Reviews:

Although the Bobble Bottle works to ensure your water tastes better, it is important to also have a filtered water bottle that cleans out the various contaminants from the water. The Bobble website actually identifies that this filter should not be used for water that is of an unknown quality (such as waters found in nature). Many love the fun style of the bottle, but some have complained that the bottle is made of a cheap quality and as easily misshapen. On the other hand, some have reported that the style and the make of the bottle is exactly what they need to keep them drinking more water throughout the day. The reviews for this filtered bottle were mixed and whether or not people liked it seemed to depend mainly upon personal preference.
