1.The filter MUST be wet through to activate the technology; drinking before the filter is wet through can lead to unfiltered water passing through the membrane. We suggest the first time you use a new filter you fill the bottle up and turn it upside down, submerging the filter for 5 minutes.
2.If the filter has stood for a period of time and become dry, reactivate in the same way.
3.Ensure lid is properly tightened to ensure a good seal but do not over-tighten.
4.Do not let contaminated water come into contact with the outer lid or spout; Water-to-Go filters can only filter what is inside the bottle. (see demo video in ‘facts’ section on this website)
5.Our bottles deliver a drinking rate of 10 mls per second; a good guzzle rate! The filter controls the flow rate. Do not squeeze the bottle hard, as this can create high pressure behind the filter and, in extreme cases, can pressurise the lid forcing a gap between the bottle and lid, and possibly allowing water to bypass the filter.
6.Change the filter after 3 months or approximately 200 litres.
7.Clean your lid regularly (see maintenance video in ‘facts’ section on this website).
8.In all cases use common sense, be careful and drink safe!
Follow the tips above to enjoy your travel water purifier over the long term.

Even seeing this in action at the homeshow didn't have me totally convinced - after all, despite the convincing set up: a big bowl of foul water from the duck pond outside sitting in front of the salesman, who then poured clear water out of the bottle... who's to say the filthy water actually ever saw the inside of the bottle?! So, I had to do it myself before I was going to be convinced... and after exhaustive testing, I now am.
Move over bottled water...
" I thought quite hard about buying a Water-to-Go bottle as I wondered if it was overkill but as soon as I landed after a long dehydrating flight and had instant access to water I was very grateful for it. There are the obvious reasons for not buying bottled water: adding to the plastic in the world - and I’d say after a month that I’ve probably already made my money back, but there are health reasons to..."
Pesticides & chemicals in tap water
"I do not exaggerate when I say that my Water-to-Go bottles have transformed my life - such a dramatic improvement. I suffer from severe chemical allergies - particularly pesticides - and am therefore unable to drink any water other than one brand of bottled Scottish mineral water. I do own a distiller but as I travel a lot this is not practical. I have lived with the constant fear of not being able..."
