Design & Functionality Bobble's creators spent years in pursuit of a solution to help people kick the use-and-toss bottled water habit - and their solution is brilliant! Super lightweight, and affordable, Bobble provides high-quality, filtered water without the waste of single-use water bottles. Plus, it's incredibly simple - just fill the squeezable bottle with water and it filters while you drink. Built-in, carbon filter removes organic contaminants and reduces chlorine levels up to 50% - meeting or exceeding NSF international standards 45 for chlorine taste and odor reduction. The Bobble water bottle is completely recyclable.
Colorful carbon filter is connected to the cap. When it's time for a new filter (after filtering about 40 gallons), just unscrew the 100%-recyclable filter/cap and screw in a new replacement filter.
Materials Constructed from 100% recyclable, post-consumer recycled material. It also is certified BPA-free, and is free of both phthalates and PVC. The replaceable filter cap also is made from recyclable material.
Sustainability Every time you refill your Bobble, you ensure one less plastic bottle is tossed into a landfill. In fact, the average Bobble bottle's filter lifespan is equivalent to about 300 single-serve plastic water bottles. Each carbon filter is designed to last up to 2 months, or purify 40 gallons.
Care Instructions Bobble bottle should be regularly hand-washed in hot soapy water. When using a new filter, make sure to soak it thoroughly before drinking. If you need to clean the filter in between replacing it, soak it in its plastic cover in boiling water.
Comments about Product:I bought 3 of these; one for each of my three kids. One child brought his to a baseball practice and left it inside a zipped equipment bag, and by the end of the afternoon, the bottle was misshapen -- it apparently had started to warp/melt from heat. Another bottle developed so many tiny scratches that I no longer felt safe using it -- this was from hand-washing only. If your kid grasps the top of the sport top with his teeth to pull the top up, that will destroy the top rapidly, too. And there's no way to know when a filter has to be replaced.The plastic is very thin and cheap; you get what you pay for with these.We've gone back to stainless bottles. They cost more, and the kids have to be more responsible not to lose them, but there's something to be said for that, too. Not a single one of the Bobble bottles was still useable after 6 months of ownership - at least one didn't last a couple of weeks. By contrast, we've had some Kleen Kanteen and SIGG bottles going strong for 8 years.
Comments about Product:I LOVE the idea of this bottle, filling up on the go from varying water sources. Yes! It has been a good water bottle. My only issues with the water bottle is that you really have to squeeze it and/or suck really really hard to get the water out sometimes. When you squeeze it, the plastic creaks and gives the impression that it may break, although it hasn't.
I still use this bottle, I love the concept and I would recommend it to friend and a foe!
Comments about Product:I bought each of my family members one of these bottles before we went to Disney World. I can't tell you how much money we saved by getting water out of water fountains instead of buying drinks all day. I can't stand the Florida sulpher water and you could not taste it at all with these bottles. The water was so good I tasted it directly out of the fountain to see if Disney pre-filtered it or something. It wasn't. The water tasted disgusting. The filtering works extremely well.
Comments about Product:You have to squeeze the bottle you can't just suck on it. After I cleaned it I notices black particles floating in the water. I followed all the pre-use instructional. I think It might have came from the filter. I gave the bottle away and only used it 1.5 times.
Comments about Product:I purchased two of these filtered bottles recently and think they are great! I drink a lot of water everyday and I am very sensitive to odors and foreign tastes in most tap water. The Bobble bottles work great; the filter makes ordinary tap water taste like bottled spring water. I have not experienced any problems with the light weight plastic. I believe it will last a long time. It is somewhat difficult to clean though as it cannot be placed in a dishwasher. As yet, I have not found a bottle brush narrow enough to fit through the neck of this bottle.
Comments about Product:I have never enjoyed drinking water, not even knowing it's a healthy thing to do. The smell of chlorine is off-putting, and I can smell a drop in a gallon from five miles away. I use a Britta pitcher sometimes, but it takes up a lot of room in the refrigerator. The Bobbie Bottle is the perfect answer. The water is clear and tasteless, just the way it's supposed to be. Very good product at a good price.
By the way, Britta just came out with a similar product. I'm not tempted. Their colors are unappealing, yuppie colors.
Comments about Product:I bought multiples and noticed some bottles have a bluish tint and some are clearer. There is also a hissing sound when you squeeze and release the bottle to drink. Either way, I drink more water know feeling safe that the it filters the water. It's also great for kids who can take it to school.
Comments about Product:I love the look of this bottle but I would be willing to pay a little bit more money for the plastic to not be so cheap. The first time I used it (to clean the filter), I already had creases on the bottle. Another problem is the spout does not stay open so in order to get water out of it you need to squeeze. Not the most convenient. BUT the water does taste good and I enjoy having a filter attached to a water bottle knowing I can safely get water anywhere.
Comments about Product:It doesn't work very well. The sport cap/spout doesn't stay open and closes while you are taking a drink. If you squeeze the bottle while drinking it leaks. I've tried numerous times different angles, different pressure on the bottle, and different ways of how I position my mouth on the spout. Every time I never get more than a sip at a time. I think it looks great, I like the different colors available, and I wanted to get more for my husband and grandchildren but it just doesn't work right when trying to take a drink. I thought this product would be my answer of having bottled water without a throw away plastic bottle. The concept is a great one but the water delivery has got to be worked on. I purchased two additional filters and they all work the same, too small amount of water comes out and you need to continue with open cap, small sip, open cap, small sip, etc. It gets frustrating. I watched the video and it really was not any help. You need to show how you drink from it. Oh, unless you already know you have to sip, open, sip, open, sip, open etc.
Comments about Product:Bobble is great. It's a great size. Only downer is that you can't put other liquids in it because it would mess up the filter, but for water it's great. I haven't had any problem with carbon flakes in the water.
Comments about Product:So far so good, it's not a big clunky thing and the maintenance is easy. I won't recommend this bottle for outdoorsy activities or rough situations however, the plastic is very thin and is easily damaged. It's been great for getting my daily water intake at the office.
Comments about Product:I agree with points along the entire spectrum of reviews for this bottle. Yes, the plastic is pretty cheap, but it's also recyclable. For me, it has definitely not worn out in 3 weeks. In fact, I've had it 3 months, and it's still working fine. However, I use this bottle as a secondary bottle at work after I've emptied my larger bottle, which I fill at home with filtered water. The noise the Bobble makes is mildly annoying, and you wouldn't necessarily want to use it in a very quiet setting. One excellent use for this bottle is travel. I always have missed my filtered water in hotel rooms and in airports/on planes. This bottle even skirts the liquid ban for airport security, since it can be emptied prior to and refilled after going through security. One final issue I've noticed is that the bottle isn't the *most* water-tight. You need to be careful to make sure it's closed as tightly as possible, and even then, it can leak slightly out the closed nozzle. It would be nice if the manufacturer could fix these few problems, but for the price and its great utility in travel, I think the Bobble is entirely worth the few minor drawbacks.
Comments about Product:My 22-year-old daughter has never liked the taste of the tap water in our home, even though it does not bother me. She would buy cases of bottled water, trying to be good and drink water. I didn't like this, not only for the money spent, but all that plastic in the landfills. After the first week of using this bottle, she says that she is drinking more water. And no more bottled water costs! One of the best attributes of this bottle is that ANY water can be used, no matter where you are. This is a great product!
Comments about Product:This is a great idea small and simple and filters the water, The bottle its self is terrible it is not a great qualities i had creases in my bottle within a day of using it and the bottle itself lasted me no more than three weeks. I just saw you guys are selling a stainless steel version by watergeeks i might try that
Comments about Product:My husband and I are trying to be more GREEN and he has been unhappy with some of the more trendy water bottles I have been trying to supple him with. When he saw these bottles, we both agreed they were worth a try as simple might be better! And so far, that is the truth! We each have two so one is always nice and refridge cold and the filter for our tap water is working so well, he never gets water out of the Britta now. So we just ordered four more for gifts and I am going to order filters so we will not skip a beat when our two months is up. Today I boiled the filters and gave them a soapy bath. I think we are ready to enjoy again.
Comments about Product:Ordered this bottle because I lost my other sport bottle, and frequently get refills at the gym water fountain. I don't like how much you have to squeeze the bottle to get the water out for a drink. And I like even less the noise it makes afterwards, as air replaces the water that was consumed. I feel compelled to use it for awhile (2 months for the original bottle, then 2 months more for the replacement filter I also purchased) - then this is definitely going in the recycling bin. Don't waste your money.
Comments about Product:My family and I use Bobble bottles regularly, we love the taste of the water, the look of the bottle and the ease of cleaning them. We would love to see the company produce a larger bobble!
Comments about Product:I have been trying to wean my family off of buying plastic bottles and this is the product that will do it. The bottle filters well and is a great beginning size. My only complaint is that I need it to be bigger. I drink so much during the day that having to refill constantly is a bother. Otherwise, it's a great bottle. I'll being buying more.
Comments about Product:I love this water bottle. Very handy for on-the-go filtered water. My only complaint is it's too small. I need a bottle twice this size for my hour-long spinning class. I e-mailed the Bobble folks and they said a taller one is coming soon, so I will stay tuned!
Comments about Product:Finally a bottle that you can 'squeeze' to get a burst of water! That was my husband's excuse why he would not use a re-usable bottle. He loves it, I love it, Mother Earth loves it!!! Thank you! I have looked for YEARS!!! and bought at least 8 different bottle types, but to no avail. Yippee!!!
Comments about Product:I love that it is lightweight, not clunky light the unfiltered water bottles. This filter really makes potable water taste much better. I do not know how long it will last, as it is rather flexible and totally recyclable. Would purchase again.
Comments about Product:I bought these for my in-laws who are addicted to buying bottled water. I hope they love them as much as I do. And for my family's upcoming road trip I'm going to fill a milk jug with water and we'll be able to refill our bottles right in the car! And the refills will make great stocking stuffers come Christmas.
Comments about Product:I bought 4 of these bottles, 1 for each member of the family. We are all drinking more water now, and saving money too! This is a terrific way to get kids thinking(adults too), that drinking water is cool.
