" Using the TapGuard will save an estimated 400 plastic bottles, 65lbs of CO2, two gallons of oil, and $500 on a single cartridge." - Liberty Sports Magazine
If you're still buying bottled water it's probably because it tastes better than the water from your tap. We love the TapGuard because it offers that same great-tasting, carbon-filtered water but with less waste. With TapGuard and your reusable bottle, you'll have clean-tasting water wherever you go, eliminating wasteful, expensive bottled water for good.

Design & Functionality When used together with your reusable bottle, the Guyot TapGuard Water Filter eliminates the need for expensive, wasteful plastic water bottles. The activated carbon pouch removes 95% of chlorine, iodine & other bad-tasting chemicals while you drink. Just rinse the filter pouch in cool water and snap it inside the silicone filter, fill your reusable water with safe drinking water, pop in the TapGuard and sip through the grated opening. The TapGuard also doubles as a splash-guard for wide mouth bottles.
Materials Safe, non-leaching food-grade silicone that does not hold odors or flavors. Activated carbon in a nylon mesh pouch, made right here in the USA. Carbon water filtration is a safe and effective method for removing unpleasant tastes and odors from tap water.
Sustainability Single use, disposable water bottles (PET plastic) create millions of tons of unnecessary waste each year. According to the Container Recycling Institute, less than 15% of plastic water bottles in the U.S. are actually recycled. Using a Guyot TapGuard Water Filter with a reusable water bottle helps preserve natural resources while saving you money in the process. Filtering your own water and using a reusable bottle ultimately helps you consume less over time.

Product Name & Number Guyot Designs Tap Guard, Slate Gray (GD250)
I've had this filter for about a week now. I have it in a Nalgene bottle. It's a great invention—the design keeps the charcoal filter wet even when the water level's low. Sometimes the water will spill out of the top hole when you tilt it too much. My only complaint is the smell of the plastic-rubber material that it's made out of. It smells like a rubbery version of new car smell.
