THE ANSWER is a simple, but revolutionary solution for contemporary water bottles. Keep your favorite Hydro Cell wide mouth bottle. Ditch 99.99% of the harmful tap water contaminants inside of it. We all love our double-insulated, wide mouth Hydro Cell bottles, but the fact that they don't include a filter, left us without an answer. That is, until we decided to create one.

Appropriately named THE ANSWER, this simple design lid/straw/filter device is a perfect fit for 32 oz and 40 oz Hydro Cell wide mouth water bottles. (More compatible bottles coming soon!) From waterborne pathogens, to heavy metals, glyphosate 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. Our filter technology has been tested in 16 different countries, 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).

THE ANSWER comes with one (1) Everyday Filter and is also compatible with Epic's Advanced Filter (but not recommended unless traveling). The Outdoor Adventure Filter is sold separately. Keep in mind, the Outdoor filter requires you to suck/squeeze a bit harder to get water through it, so we do not recommend using it for an everyday filter unless you live in an area with a very questionable public water supply to include pathogens. The Epic Outdoor filter removes 99.9999% of water contaminants as well as any waterborne pathogens like Viruses, Bacteria, Giardia and Cryptosporidium and can be used on camping trips and as an emergency preparedness item with it's microbiological filter media.

      Very Good product

      The product is fantastic and it does an amazing job. It is robust and powerful. I love the product very much but i found one issue that is frustating me whenever i use this filter. The issue upsets me so much to the point that i can't ignore it. THE STRAW IS SHORT. I can only reach 3/4 of the contain of the bottle the other quarter stays inside and remains inaccessible. It again TRULY FRUSTRATES ME. However the filter is excellent and i love it but again i wish i could use it without frustration.

      Hey Abe - thanks for the review. The Hydro Cell water bottle has a bubble at the bottom of the inside of the bottle that keeps our filter from being able reach some of the water. It should not be 1/4 of the water. Also, if you hold the filter system up to the bottle on the outside of your Hydro Cell, it looks like our filter does not reach the bottom (not even close) - this is an optical illusion because the Hydro Cell's thickest part of the bottle is the bottom of the bottle. So our filter does reach the bottom but we have a design conflict between the two products so we miss a few ounces of water but it is minimal. Thanks again for the feedback and the review. Cheers, EWF team

      Incredible customer service

      Joel at Epic water filters was beyond helpful in answering the many questions I had. True customer service is hard to find in the fast paced world we live in. The product itself was excellent as well. Well built, and great tasting water. I will be purchasing again.

      This is the perfect solution for water needs when all you have is a water fountain. It fits perfect in the bottle and so far it has been working great. Thank you for this quick fix to clean water.
