Eco-Tritan | Water Filter Bottle
I had already been using the Urban Filter on another bottle I purchased a few months ago and was really impressed with it. The filters last a lot longer than other filters l've used, and do a much better job at keeping the flavor of the water great tasting and consistent across sources. If I were rating just the filter, I would give it five stars. However, this review is specific to the Eco-Tritan bottle.
Since the bottle I originally purchased was a little large for traveling, I purchased a an Eco-Tritan bottle. The size is perfect to carry around with me when I travel, and it's the perfect size (IMO) for short hikes. The bottle seems to be pretty durable because I've dropped it a few times and it is not leaking. There are three things I would improve:
1. The non-slip base is not securely attached to the bottle. Once, when I pulled the bottle out of my car's cup holder, the bottom popped off, rolled out of the car and was lost. Fortunately, this company stands behind their products and sent me another bottle. I glued the new base on the new bottle with super-glue.
2. The filter is large and displaces a lot of water. I often slightly over-fill the bottle and spill water all over the place. Adding a max-fill line would be very helpful.
3. The plastic lid that covers the top doesn't seem necessary. As I mentioned earlier, I've dropped the bottle a few times. The bottle itself was not damaged, the plastic lid broke off. I'm using the bottle without it and it's fine.
Overall, this is a great product by a great company. I plan on buying another bottle once the .75ml camel back compatible lid becomes available.
The water we’re drinking from our new Epic Water bottles tastes so much cleaner so I’m reassured we made a good purchase.
I am the pickiest person in the world when it comes to water taste and purity. I’m
someone who filters her filtered water and was going thru a TON of disposable water bottles! I was skeptical about whether or not this would work and it really does! My only regret...I wish I wouldn’t have bought a plastic one because the water gets warm so quickly. The stainless steel one was quite a bit more expensive but I may consider it in the future! I’m telling everyone I know about this company!! Buy it...you’ll LOVE it!
I brought this water bottle, especially for international travel. Not only to save money but it is good for the environment!
I ordered a ecotritan water bottle and it was leaking so I messaged the company and they sent me a whole new bottle AND filter completely free to make up for it. New bottle doesn't leak and I'm very happy I threw my old brita "filtered" water bottle in the trash, and found epicwaterfilters!! :)
