Product Review: Caught in a dilemma of choosing safe drinking water or being a responsible traveler? What if I tell you there’s a water bottle that does both? Read on to know why Water-to-Go Filter Bottle is different from all other water purification bottles in the market and how quick and easy it is to use.
I am visiting Rann of Kutch, the White Desert, in Gujarat, India for the first time. Being a last-minute packer I dump everything in my luggage without giving much thought. However, one thing I am very particular about is my Water-to-go Filter bottle. Thanks to its unique NASA technology, tested and used globally, I have got one less worry. I can fill water from any source anywhere in the world and be rest assured that I won’t fall sick. It instantly filters over 99.9% bacteria, viruses and more harmful content from water, providing safe, refreshing drinking water anywhere in the world.
Today, I am going to share why it’s become the most important part of my travels. But first, let’s rewind a bit.
It all started from London
I am attending my first World Travel Mart (WTM) London and I am feeling a bit sad seeing the amount of plastic waste generated by the mega-scale event. The pocket-size water bottles are convenient to carry but extremely bad for the environment. I try my bit by carrying a refillable water bottle but at times when I am not sure of the water quality I end up buying use-and-throw water bottles. Just when I am mulling on what can be done to solve this problem, I bump into Dominic carrying a cute little black bottle that looks stylish and seems like it can do more than just carrying water. I am intrigued to know more about it and I ask Dominic about it. That conversation changes my travel pack forever. Now I can’t travel without my Water-to-go Filter bottle. I instantly take details from him and order one for myself.
Reasons that convinced me to become a loyal user of Water-to-Go Filter Bottle.
WHAT is unique about Water-to-Go Filter Bottle?
Water-to-Go filter water bottle is different from all other water purification bottles in the market and is very quick and easy to use.
All you have to do is fill the water from any source and drink it straight from the bottle after activating the filter for 15 minutes. You can drink any water, anywhere, with no side effects or fear of falling sick. It uses unique NASA technology, tested and used globally to filter 99.9% of contaminants from the water.
Being an offbeat solo traveler what impressed me the most about the bottle is that besides removing the microbial contaminants, it also removes Chlorine, Fluoride, Lead and other harmful elements from the unsafe water. And not just that, it even allows the beneficial minerals to pass through, leaving you with the healthiest water possible.
I used my Water-to-Go Filter Bottle for 3 months almost exclusively whilst in India, Sri Lanka and the Middle East filling up from taps, standpipes, hotel bathrooms and on a couple of occasions from streams, rivers, and canals.
HOW does Water-to-Go Filter Bottle work?
I take pride in claiming that it’s hard to impress me. Having worked as a marketer for over a decade, I don’t blindly believe claims like ‘space programme technology’ and ‘developed by NASA’. While the product has been independently tested by three different laboratories, and all of them have given an approval stamp, still I wasn’t convinced. They are all good but I needed to do my own research to reach a conclusion. I tested the bottle for few months, before writing this product review. Here is what I found on how the bottle works.
Water-to-Go Filter Bottle uses a unique 3 In1 Filter Technology originally developed for the NASA space programme. Three different technologies are integrated into one filter to remove over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants in water.
1. Mechanical filtration
A very small pore size which stops contaminants passing through.
2. Electrical (by a positive charge)
Reduces the pore size even further and attracts the contaminants like a magnet would, trapping them inside the filter.
Instead of using adhesives to glue the carbon particles together, (which vastly reduces the carbon’s efficiency) it is contained within the membrane, helping to reduce contaminants whilst eliminating bad tastes and odours.
To test their claim of filtering any water, I even filled it up from a muddy puddle at Rann of Kutch, and the water came out perfectly drinkable and the taste wasn’t bad either!
WHY is it perfect for travelers, commuters, and health-conscious people?
1. Handy and lightweight
Water-to-Go Filter Bottle comes in two sizes; the 75cl bottle filters 200 litres and lasts 3 months and the 50cl GO! bottle lasts 130 litres or 2 months. At the end of the period, you just change the filter and you are ready to go.
Each filter treats either 130 or 200 litres of water. That’s equivalent to 260 or 400 single-use plastic water bottles! The filter membrane is biodegradable and the shrouds are recyclable.
3. Cost Effective
Say bye to buying bottled water! With Water-to-Go Filter Bottle, safe and clean drinking water costs only Rs 2 (0.03 cents) per litre as compared to upwards of Rs.20 (30 cents).
4. Perfect for every day, outdoor and travel
Being a frequent traveler with a petite frame I try to carry as little weight as possible. The Water-to-Go Filter Bottle size is sturdy and good for everyday use, outdoors and travel. It’s easy to hold and comes in funky bright colours as well as transparent colour.
