Hard Sided Bottle Violet Pinwheel
I generally feel that this is a good product and an especially good value. The price is not bad but I think that about 1 month after using a new filter the effectiveness of the filter goes downhill- sharply.
Love this bottle
Love, love, love this bottle. Wish I could replace the top. I dropped it and broke it to the point that it doesn't work. bummer.
It works great an easy to drink I love
there's no bed features about it give everybody would by one I think they would know what a great product
I purchased multiples of the "soft" bottle. The WORST product produced by Brita in years. The HARD bottle had to be better.
I sincerely LOVE the new HARD bottle. It functions well; it could use an air valve hole, but functions adequately without it.
A smaller size would be nice, but I will use the large HARD bottle none the less.
Get to have when taking a spinning class.
I never leave home without it.
Best Water Bottle EVER!!!
I received my Brita ® Hard Sided Bottle as promotional gift, and I have at my side every day now! The straw design is great and the filter design is even greater! It's given me yet another reason to drink clean water everyday! I highly recommended grabbing one up for yourself !
Let me just start off by saying if you are having trouble drinking through the straw or experience loud gurgle when doing so, your filter is not installed correctly. Make sure it is pressed firmly so the seal is closed. I made this mistake when I first got it and had a heck of time trying to get water. When I took it apart and made sure all seals were firmly in place, it worked like a charm. For everything else, it's sturdy and large water bottle. How can you go wrong?
Great for Travel
I travel a lot for work and it sucks that you cannot bring your own water on the plane at the airport anymore. I hate spending money on bottled water so the Brita filtered water bottle is a great way to be able to use my own bottle with any water coming out of a water fountaion and know that I will have great tasting water!
I love the hard sided water bottle -- it's larger than many other water bottles AND it filters the nasty water I have to drink at my school! BUT I have two minor issues with it.
First, my water bottle fell out of my backpack the second day I owned it and cracked the lid. It isn't a major crack, but it could get worse and the only way to fix it at this time is to replace the whole bottle. Lesson: Be careful with this bottle.
Second, it's difficult to break in a new filter. With the squeeze bottles I can just squeeze a bottle full of water through the filter until it flows clear. With this, though, the only way is to suck it up through the straw and spit it out. (Ew...) I had tried fitting it into my squeeze bottle (just to clean the filter before use) but no luck using that, and I tried rinsing the loose pieces off before inserting it into the bottle. Even after I thought the water looked clear, I felt grit from the charcoal filter in my mouth for a day or two after.
Aside from these two issues I am absolutely happy with my purchase. I still use the bottle every day, cracked lid and all.
Difficult to drink water from bottle
I would not recommend this product to anyone. I just purchased the bottle and I am having the hardest time drinking water from the bottle. I followed the directions on how to put it together and I can't seem to drink water from the bottle. You have to suck really heard to get one or two drops of water from the mouthpiece. Maybe I am doing something wrong. But I feel bad that I purchased it and can't get any use from it.
This product is great!
I gave this to my daughter who took it to college. Shes used to brita filtered water at home. shes thrilled that now she has a filter bottle and doesnt need bottled water, and has no problem using waterfountains to keep it full!
Exactly What I Wanted
This water bottle solved the problems I'd had with the softer filtering bottle. The long tube on the inside means I don't have to refill it as much as I did the other. Having the straw tuck away is so much nicer than having a sport top with a cap that would always fall off. Machine washable? All of it? Great! Filter change is quick and easy. Plus the cute design? I love this water bottle. I take it with me when I travel, when I am at the gym, everywhere. Thanks to Brita for making this product. :)
