FAQ’s

General

1How to use the bottle for the first time?
All you need to do is ensure the filter is wet through and flush once to activate it. We suggest the first time you use a new filter you fill the bottle up and turn it upside down, submerging the filter for 15 minutes. Then gently squeeze out the contents until the water runs clear. We have created a short video showing how to activate your filter.

By choosing a Droppure water filtration bottle you reduce plastic pollution and save resources. Pollution caused by millions of plastic water bottles floating in our oceans damages wildlife and the planetary ecosysytem. Making just one Droppure water bottle instead of a hundred single use single-use plastic water bottles preserves valuable natural resources. Huge quantities of oil, water and other materials are used in the manufacturing and shipping process of single-use bottles. At the end of their lives, only 12% of plastic bottles are recycled!

4My bottle keeps making a ‘tweeting’ noise… How do I stop this?
This noise is caused by the ‘breather valve’. Simply unscrew the lid, turn upside down, gently move the bottom part of the breather (a mushroom shaped dome) up and down, two or three times; this will cure the problem.

Filter

1What are the filtration technologies Droppure water filtration product uses?
Droppure uses three different technologies forged together in one filter to filter over 99.9% of all contaminants in water and consists of: A) Filter medium with one of the smallest pores sizes ever developed for water filtration B) The traditional technology of activated carbon particles (that reduce bad taste and odours) used within the filter medium so that it is much more effective as there is less adhesive holding the carbon in place thereby providing a greater surface area for the carbon to work C) The medium releases a positive hydrostatic charge when it comes into contact with the water No other water filter technology combines these three technologies and delivers results at low cost.
2Can I use other liquids in the bottle other than water?
This may reduce the efficiency and lifespan of the filter; however if you want to use your Droppure bottle to carry other liquids, you could simply unscrew the filter, take it out, and use the bottle as a standard sports drink bottle.
3Will the filter clean urine?
This is a frequently asked question – and whilst the filter could be used to filter urine in extreme emergencies, Droppure strongly recommends against filtering and consuming urine.
4Do you filter Fluoride?
Yes. See our testing results. Our filters use both alumina nano technology and carbon to filter out fluoride.
5Do you filter Chlorine?
Yes. Recent tests show that Droppure filters reduce the amount of chlorine in the water to below detectable levels. You can see our testing results,also you can taste the difference when you drink from a Droppure filtered water bottle.
