FAQ for Aquaspace® Water Bottles
On the go, at home or at work, Aquaspace® patented technology puts filtered alkaline mineral water at your fingertips. Our filtering water bottles provide a superior standard of clean water and are capable of filtering hundreds of ounces before the filter needs to be changed. They’re the most convenient solution to personal hydration, wherever and whenever you need clean, safe drinking water.
Where are Filtered Water Bottles Most Effective?
Depending on your circumstances, it’s important to select the right filtered water bottle based on its capabilities.
The SURVIVOR™ bottle can filter water from just about any freshwater source—that means right out of a lake, river or rainwater catch! Its powerful filtration capabilities make it a popular option for hikers and campers, as well as those put into rugged or disparate situations.
The AquaBuddy™ utilizes three patented technologies to deliver the cleanest, healthiest water possible on-the-go. This includes an Aquaspace® Compound filter, an Aqua ION™ Compound filter and AQUATOMIC® Hydrating Magnets. It can filter water from any tap or fountain.
Are Aquaspace® Water Bottles Safe?
Many conventional water bottles are made with polycarbonate plastics, which may contain Bisphenol A (BPA)—a chemical known to mimic estrogen, which can have adverse effects on the body’s hormone levels.
All Aquaspace® filtered water bottles are BPA- and Phthalate-free, which means they’re completely safe for everyday use. Our AquaBuddy™ and AQUATOMIC® water bottles both include hydrating magnets, used to decluster water and make it more bioavailable to your body. These neodymium super magnets are completely safe for humans.
What’s the Difference Between a Filtered Water Bottle and a Life Straw?
Life Straws are popular with outdoor enthusiasts—particularly hikers and campers who may be far from a safe or reliable water source for days or weeks at a time. A Life Straw uses a hollow fiber membrane to trap contaminants such as parasites and bacteria in its microscopic pores. Water passes through the 0.2-micron pores, while larger microorganisms are trapped before they can enter the body. As a result, a Life Straw is effective for filtering parasites and other microorganisms… but not much else.
Aquaspace® filtered water bottles—particularly the Survivor™ Water Bottle—also use a hollow fiber membrane to remove microorganisms from contaminated water. This effectively removes 99.99% of bacteria, parasites and cysts. Where Aquaspace® bottles go above and beyond is in their chemical reduction capabilities, made possible through the inclusion of the Aquaspace® Compound filter. This compound also removes lead, chlorine, herbicides, pesticides, VOCs and other organic and inorganic chemicals. It’s a more complete filtration solution for cleaner, healthier water on-the-go.
How Often do You Need to Replace the Filters in a Water Bottle?
Each Aquaspace® water bottle has a different filtering standard, which means each has its own filter media replacement requirements. Here’s a look at the rating for each filtered water bottle:
- SURVIVOR™: The filter lasts for 45 Gallons/170 Liters or approximately 3 months of regular use. The water bottle fits 20oz. of water and can be refilled 288 times.
- AquaBuddy™: The filter lasts for 45 Gallons/170 Liters or approximately 3 months of regular use. The water bottle fits 20oz. of water and can be refilled 288 times.
- AQUATOMIC®: Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) Magnets will last the life of the stainless-steel water bottle and insulated carry bag. No replacement required.
Additionally, it’s a smart idea to clean your filtered water bottle regularly after use. All Aquaspace® bottles can be hand-washed with warm, soapy water.
Is the Cost of a Filtered Water Bottle Really Worth it?
Absolutely! It’s very easy to justify the cost of a filtered water bottle from both a monetary standpoint and a health benefits standpoint.
You can’t put a price on your health. When it comes to nourishing your body, the single most important thing you can put in it is clean, safe, healthy water. When you’re on-the-go or in a place where the quality of the water may be suspect or unproven, a filtered water bottle is an instant solution to safe, clean drinking water—whether you’re hiking in the mountains or in the middle of a disaster situation. This alone is enough to justify the cost of a filtered water bottle for most people.For those who prefer a cost-benefit analysis in actual dollars, it’s very easy to see the return-on-investment (ROI) of a filtered water bottle over traditional bottled water. Take, for example, the AquaBuddy™ filtered water bottle, which costs $59.95. The annual cost of ownership for this bottle is roughly $80—the cost of a year supply of replacement filter cartridges (180 gallons). Compare that to $900 for a year supply of bottled alkaline water at $5 per gallon! The cost of conventional water bottles is orders of magnitude more expensive—not to mention more wasteful when you consider the plastic.
