About this project
The Aquasana Filter Bottle is unlike any other bottle on the market. We've paired smart, beautiful design with cutting edge water filter technology that has never before been available in a bottle.
What we've created is the ultimate drinking vessel. Use it with the high performance water filter and it's a reusable glass bottle that can deliver better than bottled water quality, instantly!
Fill it up at any municipal water source - public water fountain, airport faucet, even a bathroom sink - and know you're getting the cleanest, most delicious water possible. Or remove the filter and use the glass bottle for holding homemade smoothies, kombucha, fresh-pressed juices, or whatever else you may be drinking.
So how do we do it? The secret is cutting edge patented filter technology unlike any other bottle filter out there.
At the core of our filter is a woven nano-fiber membrane with an electrostatic charge. In addition, we've used a combination of adsorption, mechanical filtration, and ion-exchange to achieve professional grade filtration right at your fingertips.
The result? The most delicious, "better than bottled water quality" drinking water, instantly.
The filter in this bottle is designed to effectively remove impurities from the water including:
- BACTERIA like E.coli
- LEAD from old pipes
- VIRUSES like influenza
- CHLORINE a chemical disinfectant
- CYSTS like giardia
We partnered with our friends at Motiv, up in Boston, to come up with the perfect bottle shape and design. What we created together is the perfect blend between beauty and functionality.
The bottle features a smart, ergonomic shape that was designed to fit comfortably in your hand for easy drinking.
The sleeve features an unconventional weave pattern to provide optimal grip-ability, while also completely protecting the glass bottle from top to bottom.
The modular bottle cap was designed to be used with or without the filter. With the filter, you get instantly clean, filtered drinking water. Remove the filter, and the Aquasana bottle is the perfect glass vessel for holding homemade smoothies, kombucha, fresh-pressed juices, or whatever else you're drinking!
The cap also features a silicone closure to protect the mouthpiece from dirt and secures tightly to prevent spillage.
We use high quality borosilicate glass instead of plastic. Plastic can leach chemicals into your water or beverage. Glass is the best material for storing and keeping what you drink pure and free of chemicals.
The glass bottle holds 650ml or 22 oz. of liquid. The filter displaces about 6 oz. of water, so the bottle with the filter will hold up to 16 oz. of water at a time.
Just one Aquasana filter lasts 80 gallons. That's the equivalent of over 600 disposable plastic water bottles!
Staying properly hydrated is so central to our health. This bottle makes it easy to incorporate drinking more water into your lifestyle.

Risks and challenges
Aquasana is a small, but savvy Austin-based filtration company. We have a strong track record of manufacturing quality home water filtration systems, and we've got the loyal customers to prove it! This is the first glass filter bottle we've ever created, and it is still a work in progress, but we are determined to bring this thing to market. We've gone through many iterations of the bottle design and we have a prototype now that is near perfect. As we continue the product development process and move towards manufacturing, we will keep our backers updated on progress with behind the scenes pictures and videos.
Once funded, we don't foresee any big hiccups in production. The funds we raise on Kickstarter will go towards finalizing product design and functionality to ensure we're creating the best filter bottle possible, as well as pay for the manufacturing and marketing of the bottle to bring it into the world. If we do run into any challenges, our backers will be the first to know, but rest assured we are committed to bringing this bottle to market. We believe this is something we need to bring into the world, but we need your support to prove us right.
