Why Do I Need An Insulated Water Bottle?
First of all, why do you need an insulated water bottle? When looking at the difference between an insulated water bottle vs regular water bottle, there are a lot of things to consider. Insulated water bottles, for the most part, are made from stainless steel, although we have seen some new glass ones on the market. These stainless steel bottles are designed to be vacuum sealed and therefore can retain heat or cold temperatures no matter the temperatures of the surroundings.
Regular water bottles, on the other hand, are made from a variety of materials such as plastic water, aluminum, glass, and stainless steel. These bottles do not have the same "R-value" abilities of an insulated water bottle (R-value is a measure of how well a two-dimensional barrier, such as a layer of insulation, resists the flow of conductive heat.)
Americans alone spend as much as $11 billion on single use plastic water bottles per year. This shocking number shows us that one thing is for sure; water is a vital part of our health and can be costly if we do not take the right steps towards our hydration. It is therefore important to discuss an insulated water bottle with a filter and see how they relate in terms of health, cost and environmental impact vs single use plastic water bottles.
But Why Do You Need A Filter?
Every one of us wants to drink water that is as clean as possible (I have never heard someone say, ya - give me the dirty water please). Clean drinking water is one of the most important things we require for a healthy body and mind. This is understandable because study after study has proven that drinking unclean water can cause havoc for our health (Flint, Michigan Lead Issue). Unfortunately, tap water across the world has proven to be less reliable than we thought and contaminants are finding ways into our water left and right.
If you are always on the go then you will need your own water filtering system. A water bottle with a filter is the best thing to have. The Epic Urban filter will clean any tap water and is made to use on the go so when you're out and about you don't have to worry about having clean water. The interchangeable Outdoor Adventure Filter is especially good for your bottle if you are in a place where potable water is inaccessible. Reusable filters are also much more cost effective if you think about how you would be spending on plastic water bottles in three months, and not to mention, it's better for the environment and our oceans.
Insulated Water Bottle With Filter
At Epic Water Filters, we give you two choices when it comes to an insulated water bottle with a filter. You can either look at our new 34 oz Vostok double insulated filtered water bottle or if you have a double insulated water bottle already (Hydro Flask, Takeya, Thermoflask, Tru Flask or Hydro Cell), you can get our system we call "The Answer" which is designed to give you cold filtered water on your existing water bottle you already know and love.
About the Epic Vostok: The Epic Vostok 34 oz is big enough to quench your thirst for a whole day on the river or trails and with our interchangeable filter system you can fill up your Vostok anywhere from the tap in your office or the stream next to your campsite (Outdoor Adventure Filter sold separately). The Vostok double walled insulated bottle is made with professional-grade stainless steel and comes with a wider opening for faster refills. The Vostok's durable powder coat is more than ready for your next adventure.
But Wait, I Already Have My Own Bottle... (Oh, then we have "The Answer")
The Answer is a simple, but revolutionary water filter solution for contemporary double insulated water bottles like your favorite Hydro Flask or their competitors like Takeya, Thermoflask, Hydro Cell or Tru Flask. Keep your favorite Hydro Flask wide mouth bottle, ditch 99.99% of the harmful tap water contaminants inside of it. We all love our double-insulated, wide mouth Hydro Flask bottles too, but the fact that they don't include a filter, left us without an answer. That is, until we decided to create one (ha!). Appropriately named "The Answer", this simple design lid/straw/filter device is a perfect fit for 32oz and 40oz Hydro Flask, Takeya, Thermoflask, Tru Flask and Hydro Cell wide mouth water bottles.
From waterborne pathogens, to heavy metals, fluoride and even trace pharmaceuticals, all are eliminated with our multi-patented filter media. Be confident that the only thing reaching your body is the purest water available. Epic Water Filters' filter technology has been tested in 16 different laboratories around the world, and they promise to remove some of the most contaminated tap water on Earth. Enjoy up to 75 gallons of pure clean water per filter. On average, we recommend replacing it once every few months if being used regularly. Our American-made and American-tested filters outperform well known filtration brands any day of the week. You'll notice some of our biggest competitors do not even publish test results -- that's because their filters only remove bad taste and some chlorine (like that Brita pitcher you've become so skeptical of lately).
