1st use

Before first use, rinse the bottle, top and filter with drinking water (3 x 1 minute). When using for the first time or whenever the filter is dry, fill the bottle with water, screw on the cap and leave to stand for a few minutes to prime the filter. Then perform 5 fast sips to allow the water to drain.

Directions for use

Rinse your water bottle and filter with drinking water to remove dust and dirt. Fill the water bottle with fresh water (do not use stagnant water) from the best available source without making the bite valve and top dirty. The clearer and cleaner (no impurities) the water added before filtration, the longer the filter will last. Avoid drinking any of the water that runs down the side of your bottle while drinking.

Directions for use (cont)

Make sure that the bottle and filter are tightly closed. The filter will stop allowing water to pass through when it has reached the end of its life. If you can no longer suck the water, it is time to replace the part that contains the filter. Thoroughly dry your filter after use.

Filtration system

We chose a micro-filtration technology with a membrane (hollow fiber) that eliminates up to 99.9999% of bacteria (e.g.: Escherichia coli, Vibrio cholerae, etc.) as well as 99.9% of protozoan parasite cysts (e.g.: Cryptosporidium parvum, Giardia lamblia), organisms that cause waterborne pathologies. This greatly reduces the risk of contracting diseases such as diarrhea, dysentery or giardiasis.

Care instructions

After each use, unscrew the cap, rinse the bottle, top and filter with drinking water and allow to dry thoroughly. Before placing the bottle in the dishwasher for cleaning, remove the filter. Do not wash the filter in the dishwasher. Do not try to clean the fibers in the plastic housing. If in doubt, change the filter. Should you blow into the bite valve and the air passes through the filter, it is defective and must be replaced.

Caution

Drinking untreated water and improper use can expose you to harmful micro-organisms and increase the risk of gastrointestinal disorders. To reduce the risks involved, follow the safety guidelines and instructions for use, and find out about the suitability of the water for human consumption in remote areas. Never use to filter seawater or chemically contaminated water. Viruses are not filtered by this hollow fiber filter. Do not drop.
