Experts Agree: Water Filters Do Nothing To Kill Bacteria, Viruses Or Germs! Do This Instead To Protect Yourself
Like most people living in a first-world country, I always assumed the water I was drinking was safe.
We always used the filtered water from our fridge… and we even bought a fancy filter pitcher to use with the tap (you may have the same one in your home).
I thought that was enough to keep us safe. All the water we drink at home is filtered… that should be plenty, right?!
But a couple of months back, I stumbled onto a mommy blog that made my jaw drop… and it completely changed my opinion about the water we drink.
I Was Shocked To Learn That Our Water Supplies Are Nowhere NEAR As Safe As I Thought
The blog post was talking about an investigation done by the Environment Working Group (EWG).
They spent 3 years analyzing the results of almost 20 MILLION drinking water tests in the US…
And what they discovered wasn’t pretty.
They found that 316 (out of 324 tested) contaminants such as lead, arsenic, chlorine, and even E. coli are likely swimming in YOUR drinking water right now.
The worst part is, this is COMPLETELY LEGAL!
The contaminant levels are within the EPA’s standards…
… BUT they are FAR ABOVE the levels scientists have determined are harmful to our health.
In fact, the legal limit is often HUNDREDS of times higher than the limit recommended by public health agencies.3
It’s no wonder so many of us are getting sick!
To Make Matters Worse, Most Water Filters – Even Expensive Ones – Can Actually Make Your Water WORSE!
As it turns out, the filters we all trust aren’t nearly as safe as we thought.
And while it’s healthy for kids to be exposed to some germs, I was shocked to find out that in many cases, filters can make your water even dirtier than when it comes out of the tap!
See, while new filters can strip out certain contaminants, it only takes a couple of months before the filters get so dirty that they actually pollute your water more than they clean it.
With a family of four, it turns out we were supposed to be swapping the filter on our fridge every month.
This would have cost us almost $500 per year!!
But it gets worse…
Filters Aren’t Just A Breeding Ground for Bacteria… They Don’t Remove Some Of The Most Dangerous Contaminants
You see, while modern filters are designed to strip out chemicals, plastics, and even radiation, they do nothing to kill bacteria or germs like salmonella, coliform, or even fecal matter.
As you can imagine, the thought of me and my kids drinking salmonella and poo particles had me wanting to burn the house down.
Thankfully, we live in the 21st Century… and there are now much, much better ways to keep your water safe and pure than ever before.
That mommy blog I was reading didn’t just tell me about the problem. It also suggested a solution: UVBrite.
Apparently, UVBrite is a new self-cleaning water bottle that purifies your water at the press of a button.
That means you don’t have to spend hundreds on replacing filters… you can take it with you EVERYWHERE… and, it actually kills the germs that filters can’t catch.
After I saw they had already sold 140,000 of them with tons of positive reviews, I decided to order one… and after a few days of using it, I went back and ordered a full set of them for my husband and kids. It’s THAT amazing!
What is UVBrite, anyway?
UVBrite is a new high-tech water bottle that has a built-in UV-C light, which you can activate to quickly purify the water inside.
To use it, simply fill up your water bottle and press the button to activate the UV-C light purification system. UVBrite will purify your drinking water in as little as three minutes.
UVBrite uses the same proven UV-C light technology found in hospitals, dental offices, and even the International Space Station to kill 99.99% of germs, which gave me a lot of confidence.
Even better, UVBrite’s purification process ALSO cleans the bottle itself – so I don’t have to keep reminding my kids to wash their bottles every other day. (Those things can get nasty quick… thanks to the buildup of germs that UVBrite eliminates, but most filters miss.) We just pop it in the dishwasher once every 3-6 months and it’s good as new.
It’s a one-time purchase, too. The water bottle uses a rechargeable battery that can purify up to 60 bottles of water on a single charge…
And UVBrite’s UV-C light lasts long enough to purify up to 29,000 gallons of water – which is more than the average person will drink in their lifetime.
Of course, my kids’ favorite part is how cool it looks. I have to admit, they make a good point… but my favorite part is that it’s simply an amazing water bottle. It’s made from double-walled BPA-free stainless steel with a brilliant design that keeps water hot or cold for up to 12 hours.
How does the UVBrite self-cleaning water bottle work?
Using UVBrite to purify your water is easy:
- Fill up your water bottle
- Press the button
- Wait 3-5 minutes as the UV-C light kills up to 99.99% of the bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa, and microbes crawling in your water
- Enjoy pure water – anywhere, any time, from almost any water source in the world!
The UV-C light inside of the cap works to kill bacteria and germs by destroying their DNA. This, in turn, eliminates their ability to spread.
And while UV-C light is normally used for industrial level disinfection purposes, a group of tech-savvy entrepreneurs figured out how to pack that same technology right into the water bottle’s cap – with zero risk of accidental exposure.
That means it isn’t just easy, it’s 100% safe to use – even for my kids!
Best of all: UVBrite can make almost any source of water in the world safe to drink
Not only does UVBrite keep your water (and itself) clean and pure at all times, it’s also the perfect way to keep yourself protected from potentially dangerous water sources – whether it’s your home tap or a microbe-infested river in the middle of nowhere.
There’s a simple rule when using UVBrite: If you can see through the water, you can purify it.
That means UVBrite works on all tap water, wells, water fountains, rivers, streams, and any other source of transparent water – anywhere in the world.
This is great for my husband, who drinks tap water at the office… and we always bring our UVBrites whenever we go camping. And you better believe we’re bringing it with us on our upcoming trip to Mexico!
Who needs UVBrite the most?
After reading comments on that mommy blog, I realized that UVBrite is perfect for anyone who wants regular access to clean, safe, and purified drinking water – so, basically everyone!
But UVBrite has become especially popular among certain people, such as:
- Urban commuters: If you’re constantly on-the-go, you’ll need access to safe, pure drinking water throughout the day. The UVBrite prevents the use of plastic, single-use water bottles while offering access to clean water – combined with the minimal need for cleaning and its sleek look, it’s no wonder so many people are replacing their old-school water bottles with UVBrite!
- Travelers: Whether you’re jet-setting off to Mexico or enjoying a weekend getaway to the mountains, you always have peace of mind knowing you’re drinking safe water.
- Athletes: Whether you’re hitting the gym, running around the track, or hitting a round of golf, the UVBrite will purify your water even when you’re getting a sweat sesh in.
- Parents: Whether you’re dropping the kids off at soccer practice, running errands, or squeezing a workout in over your lunch break, UVBrite ensures you have continuous access to safe drinking water.
- Hikers, bikers, and travelers: Spending the day outside? UVBrite ensures you have access to clean drinking water, even without a water fountain in sight.
- The environmentally-conscious: UVBrite is helping to eliminate the more than 8 million tons of plastic bottles that end up in our oceans each year by giving people a reusable bottle they’ll actually feel great about using.
Bottom line: UVBrite helps you enjoy clean drinking water – and a clean water bottle – no matter where you are
UVBrite is clearly a revolutionary innovation, and it’s already given me and my family peace of mind about the safety of our water.
No longer do we have to cross our fingers and hope our municipality is purifying our water supply effectively (studies show they probably aren’t)... with UVBrite, we’re in complete control of our water safety.
Honestly, I would have probably bought it simply because of how much better it is than my old water bottle… but the fact that it empowers me to drink any source of water freely really pushes it over the top.
In short, UVBrite is the best water bottle I’ve ever seen, and it’s restored my confidence in the water I drink. I won’t be surprised when everyone is using one – at home, on the go, and around the world!
