We were given the opportunity to review Water Bobble Canada's Water bottles.
They claim "Filtration reinvented, faster. smarter. sleeker. sustainable. saves money" in the brochure they sent us & we eagerly anticipated the chance to test them out & share our findings with you.
1 filter is claimed to equal 300 water bottles. They suggest you replace the filter after 2 months or 40 gallons/150 litres of water. The filters come in different colors while the bottle itself is a clear plastic. The filters remove chlorine & organic contaminants from municipal tap or potable water only.
I gave my teen-aged daughter one of the bottles to take with her for school/co-op every day. Now it has to be noted that my daughter usually refuses to drink water unless it is flavoured as she detests the taste of city water. She does not even really like the bottled water as she finds it has an unpleasant taste to it as well.
She came to me the first day & complained that even though we activated the filter by filling the bottle with water & then squeezing it gently until it was empty (actually we did this twice) there was still some carbon residue floating in the water. She also did not like the noise it makes when you drink & air is pulled back into the bottle. Other than that, she was thrilled with the clean taste she got when she drank water from the bottle. She found herself drinking more water than she would have even using regular bottled water.
At first I was nervous to squeeze the plastic as I was afraid to break it, but as I got used to it, I realized it actually is quite sturdy. I'm not saying they they are indestructible, but they are not as fragile as I first imagined them to be. The bottles are BPA free & are also recyclable when it is time to replace them.
They come with a clear cap to keep the nozzle clean & while that is great especially if you put the bottle in bags, I am afraid I will lose it. The bottles we were given to review can not be put in the dishwasher or freezer, much to my daughter's disappointment. However they do have bottles that you can.
My own review of them is quite simple. I love it! It gives me the opportunity to drink water that doesn't taste like chlorine. It is cheaper than buying bottled water & is better for the environment. I have to agree with my daughter that it does taste better than bottled water as well. I like that all I have to do is fill the bottle & drink. No waiting for it to be filtered in order to drink. The bottle fits inside the cup holder in my car with no problem which is great too. The fact that the filters are the colorful part of the bottle is nice too. It does have a sleek design which makes it fit comfortably in your hand. They also have a large variety of different sizes.
