You can think of water filter bottles as a reusable water bottle that cleans the water you choose to store in it, or as a portable water filter, which is a handy device created for travellers or for any active water drinker. However you choose to think about these mini water filters, one thing is certain: water filter bottles are the more environmentally friendly option compared to regular bottled water.

Top water filter bottles

Apart from being an eco-friendly option, the attributes of a good water filter bottle also include efficient protection against contaminants, portability, and durability. Keeping in mind these attributes, we have compiled a list of the top water filter bottles on the market:

Lifesaver Bottle (4000UF/6000UF)

The Lifesaver bottle is one of the most efficient water filters that was specially designed for hikers, backpackers or any outdoor traveller who relies on natural water sources for hydration. A novelty of the Lifesaver bottle is its capacity to filter out disease-causing microorganisms including parasites, bacteria, and viruses down to 0.015 microns. It also filters out a wide spectrum of chemical residues (pesticides, medical residues, etc.) and heavy metals. The Lifesaver water filter bottle makes use of an activated carbon block filter, ultrafiltration membranes, and a pre-filter disc. Depending on the model, this water filter bottle can filter up to 4000 or up to 6000 litres of water.

Öko Filtration Water Bottle

The Öko is another complex “water filter in a bottle” that uses an action and retention process known as positively charged electro-adsorption process to filter harmful contaminants found in water. The silver ions built into the system kill bacteria, and Öko’s level-2 filtration technology is known to remove the most commonly found bacteria like E-coli, cryptosporidium, giardia lamblia, and others. Available in 6 colour variants and two size options (650 ml and 1000 ml), the Öko filtration bottles are a reliable way to filter water on the go.
