Jugs with a filter cartridge have been present in our homes for many years. Flow-through filters installed directly on taps or water pipes have also gained popularity. The family of filtering devices has been recently increased by a new product – filtering bottles. This is a very convenient solution, thanks to which we can always have purified water without having to pay for bottled water.
The bottles work on the same principle as filtering jugs. They are made of plastic, safe and approved for contact with food and drinking water. They have an ergonomic shape and are available in various capacities and colors. Note: The bottle resembles a drinking bottle, but it is equipped with a removable filter cartridge, containing activated carbon, just like filters in home filtering jugs. Thanks to this, we can pour water from each tap into it, but we can be sure that we drink clean and safe water. It is of course important to remember about the monthly filter replacement, which guarantees that all mechanical (e.g. sand) and chemical (heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides etc.) impurities will be removed from the water, and that the water will be tasty and free from chlorine odor. The filters used in bottles, however, leave unchanged amount of minerals naturally present in water (e.g. calcium and magnesium), thanks to which water retains microelements valuable for health.
The bottle works well if you live an active life, while doing sports or simply for people who care about their health and the environment. Smaller bottles (e.g. with a capacity of 0.3l) are a good solution when walking or working, while a larger one (eg 0.7l) is ideal for travelling or training. It is an ideal implement for the summer, because we can fill it literally everywhere and take care of the right level of hydration. In addition to practical functions, they are also nice, light, colorful, perfectly match the summer climate. The filtering bottle should also be chosen for economic and ecological reasons. One filter can replace the purchase of up to 300 bottles of water with a capacity of 500 ml, helping us care for the environment and for the home budget.
