FAQ

How long does the filter last?

A Puritii Filter can purify 50 gallons before it needs to be replaced.  That is equal to 181 litres or about 379 bottles of bottled water (assuming 500ml per bottle).  With regular daily usage a filter will last about 2 months.

How is Puritii cost effective?

One Puritii Filter is designed to filter 50 gallons (About 800 cups of water).  The typical bottled water is 500ml which means one filter can last about 379 bottles worth of water before it needs to be replaced.  At £59.99 per filter, the cost per bottle is about £0.10!

Is the Puritii Filter Certified third parties?

Puritii exceeds NSF Standard 53 for removal of Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Bacteria, and Virus and also NSF Standard 42 for chlorine removal, improving taste and eliminating offensive odors.

What makes Puritii superior to the competition?

“Log” stands for logarithm, which is the exponent of 10. For example, Log-2 represents 102 or 10 x 10 or 100. Log Reduction stands for a 10-fold (one decimal) or 90% reduction in numbers of live bacteria.

99.9999% purity is a 6-log reduction, which means the bacteria being filtered out are reduced by 1,000,000 times. Consider this:

  • 1 Log Reduction: 90% of bacteria filtered; number of bacteria is 10 times smaller (1 in 10 survives)
  • 2 Log Reduction: 99% of bacteria filtered; number of bacteria is 100 times smaller (1 in 100 survives)
  • 3 Log Reduction: 99.9% of bacteria filtered; number of bacteria is 1,000 times smaller (1 in 1000 survives)
  • 4 Log Reduction: 99.99% of bacteria filtered; number of bacteria is 10,000 times smaller (1 in 10,000 survives)
  • 5 Log Reduction: 99.999% of bacteria filtered; number of bacteria is 100,000 times smaller (1 in 100,000 survives)
  • 6 Log Reduction: 99.9999% of bacteria filtered; number of bacteria is 1,000,000 times smaller (1 in 1,000,000 survives)

Most competitors that have portable water bottle filters only go up to 3 or 4-Log Reduction of bacteria and is not powerful enough to filter viruses.  The fact that Puritii can exceed 6-Log Reduction with bacteria and exceed 4-Log Reduction with virus is a breakthrough in water filtration technologies worldwide.

Does Puritii have patents?

The Puritii bottles are patented while the filter and its technologies are currently patent pending.

Can I use the filter with carbonated beverages?

Yes. It’ll just be filtered to become pure water with a little bit of carbonation and sugary taste if the beverage has sugar in it. Think of creating a drink like carbonated water.

What is the best way to clean the Puritii?

First pull off the filter from the cap. You can clean your bottle by hand or in the top rack of the dishwasher. For cleaning by hand, you can soak all parts in warm soapy water with a mild detergent and rinsed well. The same goes for the caps, but wash in an open position. The filters do not require “washing” and can be stored wet or dry.

Can I freeze the Puritii?

You can freeze the bottle but make sure:

  1. You remove the filter and the straw.
  2. The bottle is not completely full when you do this (we recommend only 3/4 full to allow for expansion of the water as it freezes to ice).
  3. The bottle is right side up
  4. The bite valve stem is NOT flipped up or down if there is any frozen water in the tube. Wait until the ice is thawed first.

Can I put hot liquids in the bottle?

Use of any of these drinks in the bottle is fine, but it’ll be filtered to become pure water with a slight sugary taste depending what you put in it.

Can I use Puritii in high/low altitude pressure environments (i.e. airplanes, mountain altitudes, etc.)?

Absolutely!  But use special care because pressure can force liquid out through the straw and you may experience some leakage through the bite valve or seals. Keep the bottle right side up with the bite valve in the closed position.  Remove the straw for additional protection. Expect a bit of “spurt” during the first sip.  You may also open the cap to release any pressure and then close before your first sip.

What is BPA?

Bisphenol-A is an ingredient used to make polycarbonate. In recent years, there has been increasing consumer demand for a bottle that is not made with Bisphenol-A (BPA) because of medical studies linking it to birth defects, cancers, and other serious health problems. ARIIX is proud to offer BPA-free Puritii bottles with the same great properties customers have come to expect from polycarbonate: vibrant color, clarity, durability, dishwasher-safe, and with no residual taste.

Does the Puritii BPA-free plastic bottle leach any chemicals? What type of safety testing has been done on the bottle?

After rigorous 3rd party testing of the Puritii, no harmful chemicals have been detected to come in contact with, or leach into food/beverage surfaces. A FCN (Food Contact Substance Notification) notice #1041 declared that Tritan is safe and meets all EPA and FDA guidelines for material that is to come in repeated contact with food. In addition, we have verified that all materials used in the bottle including Tritan meet the stringent guidelines set by California Proposition 65. Extraction tests were completed by SGS Labs, the world’s largest Control and Inspection Company, represented in more than 130 countries by 210 affiliated companies, verifying that the new material meets all requirements as set forth by organizations such as:

  • FDA food safety standards
  • European Community food safety standards
  • Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare
  • California Proposition 65

What max temperature (freezing/boiling water) can the Puritii withstand?

The Puritii bottles can withstand being filled with boiling water or stored in below freezing temperatures. Just be careful they are not too hot or cold to touch! Ideally it’s not a good idea to freeze the filter, because as water expands when it freezes, it would cause the water inside the filter to freeze and that could damage the filter media. The maximum temperature for the filter is around 150ºF, but we do not recommend boiling the bottle itself with or without the filter attached. If filtered water is desired for boiling, we recommend filtering your water source first with the Puritii then boil the filtered water outside of the bottle.

Does the Puritii bottle work with other filters? Does the filter work on any other bottles?

No, the Puritii filter and bottles were designed to work together and not with other models.

Does it hold residual taste?

No, there is no residual taste in the bottle materials, and it’s also stain-resistant. Some sports drinks, other flavored beverages, and some dish-washing detergents can leave behind residue of flavour oils that could require extra cleaning.

Is the straw on the filter removable? If so what happens if I take it off?

Yes it is. You will notice that you actually get 2 straws. The longer one is for the stainless steel bottle and the shorter straw is for the plastic bottle. Removal of the straw allows a “tip and sip” mode of drinking meaning you will only be able to suck whatever water is high enough to reach the end of the filter. So using the straw is highly recommended!

What is your BPA-free plastic bottle made from? How about the caps?

The squeezable plastic bottle is made from LDPE or Low Density Polyethylene. The caps are made from Polypropylene. Both materials offers the same great qualities that we have come to expect from polycarbonate bottles and are 100% BPA and Phthalates free!
