Can I use my Groove Bottle to purify water in the backcountry or when traveling overseas?


No! You should only use your Groove with potable tap water. The Fresh Filter can get rid of unpleasant tastes, but it doesn’t remove the bacteria, cysts or viruses that you might find in the backcountry or in tap water outside of the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

If you’re looking for a bottle that purifies water, check out the All Clear—it uses a UV light to microbiologically purify water when you’re traveling in the backcountry or overseas.
