Camelbak Groove - It's a Water Bottle and a Filter!

The Camelbak Groove holds 20 ounces (.6L) of water. It comes in 6 colors: pink (blush), blue, white, stainless steel (natural), seafoam, and graphite.

The bottle is BPA-free, and it’s machine-washable. And the best part of this little bottle, if you have small children like I do, is that it’s 100% spill-proof! You have to actually bite down a little on the water valve to get the water out. It’s kind of like a sippy cup for adults, although kids can use it too (and they’d probably have an easier time with the bite valve system).

The carbon filters get out just about everything the higher-priced filters do: chlorine, bad tastes and odors, hydrogen sulfide, heavy metals, radon, sediment, and volatile organic compounds (benzene and chemical cleaning agents).

Each filter lasts for about three months, and you can get a six-pack of filters on Amazon for $25 dollars, so just imagine how much money you could save over a year by not buying bottled water! Oh, and the bottle itself sells for about $20 on Amazon – a great value when compared to other portable (and some not-so-portable) water filtration systems.

Camelbak Groove Gives You Clean Water on the Go!

Everyone needs to drink clean water. That’s just a fact. It’s a lesson I learned really well in college when I was trying to drink more water and the water that came out of the bathroom tap was brown! There was no way I could bring myself to drink that. I immediately went out and bought one of the money-sucking Brita water filter pitchers at Wal-mart.

Fast forward about twelve years. I’m pregnant with our second daughter, and I’m trying to stay well-hydrated, but the water supply in our city is not cooperating. It seems there was a major algae problem in the Ohio River, and it made the water taste and smell really weird – and if you’ve ever been pregnant, you know how sensitive a pregnant woman is to taste and smells. The water literally made me sick. I could not drink it! Fortunately, my workplace had a great water filter in the cafeteria, but when I was home in the evenings and on the weekends, I had to drink bottled water. I wish I’d known about the Camelbak Groove then!

The bottom line is: you need to drink water, and that water has to be as clean as possible. The Camelbak Groove is a stylish, cost-effective way to ensure that you always have clean, healthy, non-allergenic (yes, some people are actually allergic to the chemicals in city tap water) water with you, wherever you go.

      I could just picture my mother purchasing this. As for me-it sounds very nice and I would gladly recieve it as a gift, but not really into buying one. At least not where I am living now. Maybe if I really questioned the water...Good write up and explanation of this fine product. Thanks for sharing.
