Drink the Water: Hydros Reusable Bottles Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/5) CLOSED

Sunday, August 22, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Everyone at my house has a reusable water bottle, and I make sure these are always ready to go. Proper hydration is very important, especially in hot weather. And it's been hot, hot, hot around here!

At home, we have a refrigerator filter that provides us with filtered tap water for drinking and cooking. For refills on the go, we count on water fountains and sometimes tap water. Hydros bottles make sure your drinking water is always clean and tastes good. These are the first reusable bottles I've tried that come equipped with their own filter!

The Hydros bottles are made from shatter proof plastics that are BPA- and phthalates-free. The bottles are light yet have a solid feel to them - very well made, and I love the elegant yet simple design. One bottle holds about 3 cups of water. The Hydros bottles come in 5 colors: clear, blue, pink, charcoal, and green. When I am sure that the water is of good quality - for example, it's already filtered - I fill the bottle bypassing the filter. When the water passes through the filter, the bottle takes less than 20 seconds to fill. The filter is carbon-based and reduces chlorine, chloramines, and particulates in tap water. It's good for up to 150 fills, and features Ionarmour® natural odor-killing antimicrobial enhancement. The filter needs to be replaced every three months - or after 20 gallons have been filtered - and can be purchased for $7.99 from the company's site.

Last but not least, the bottle is chemical and heat-resistant as well as dishwasher safe. Personally, I prefer to wash it by hand - the bottle has a wide opening that allows proper cleaning.

The Giveaway
One lucky reader will win a set of three (3) Hydros bottles - a $90 value! Keep one for yourself, and share the others with family or friends.

    Controversies concerning bottled water did not begin until the early 1990s. In 1990, a random check of Perrier water turned up approximately 3 times the allowed amount of benzene, a known carcinogen.

    Wow, these are sooooo much nicer than your average water bottle! I would give one to my daughter to use while she's in school, one to my husband so he can always have water with him throughout the day, and I would use one for myself. Love these!

    Thanks!
