Today I want to review the Aquamira water filter bottle that was provided by Nitro-Pak.com I also want to tell you about another great contest brought to you by myself and 15 other great preparedness blogs. Nitro-Pak.com has graciously provided three great prizes, you can find out more about them after the review of the Aquamira review.
The filter has CR filtration technology, which is tested and certified to reduce chlorine, bad tastes, odors and remove 99.9% of giardia and cryptosporidium. Each filter is said to provide up to 100 gallons or 640 refills per filter.
The bottle uses patented BITE ME technology. To drink you just bite on a soft plastic mouth and suck. Squeezing will increase water flow.
Drop in cartridges can be inserted once they expire.
I think this type of water bottle is a great item in a BOB. My son took one of a different manufacturer on a canoe trip and loved being able dunk it in the lake and drink.
Notice that it says it filters 99.9% of giardia and cryptosporidium and reduces some other things. I don’t know if this is a limitation to this type of water bottle filtration system or just this one in particular. The instructions for this particular bottle state that they “suggest using Aquamira water treatment or Aquamira purifier tablets when a complete inactivation of bacteria and virus is required.”
This is a decent model but if I were going to buy one, I would compare it against others types to see if others filter out bacteria and viruses without additives.
