HOW TO USE YOUR DRINC WATER POCKET:

1. How to drink

  • Unscrew the lid and fill the pocket with water.
  • Replace the lid and screw closed.
  • Wait a few minutes for the filter to become saturated with water.
  • Place your lips onto the mouthpiece and try to pull water through the supply tube.
  • This might require some extra effort at first, but the flow rate will improve after a short while.

Quick Tip: You may notice a tiny amount of charcoal dust with your first mouthful of water. This is completely safe and will disappear with time.

2. How to clean

  • Unscrew the lid and remove the supply tube and filter from the pocket.
  • While holding the filter, use a non-metal abrasive pad to gently scrub the filter.
  • Rinse the filter with water and wash your hands.
  • Push the supply tube and clean filter back into the pocket and screw the lid back on.The flask, lid, straw and connector will also need to be cleaned on a regular basis in order to prevent the growth of bacteria. Don’t use soap, as this will damage the filter. Instead, unscrew the filter from the connector, being careful not to damage it, and soak the lid, straw, connector and bottle in chlorinated water for 30 minutes, then air dry.

The pocket, supply tube, connector and mouthpiece will also need to be cleaned on regular basis to prevent the growth of bacteria. To clean these, carefully remove the filter by unscrewing it from the connector and soak the pocket, supply tube, connector and mouthpiece in chlorinated water for about 30 minutes, then air dry.

IMPORTANT: Don’t use any kind of soap, as this will damage both the filter and the pocket.

Quick Tip: A sure sign your filter needs to be cleaned is that it becomes too difficult to pull water through the supply tube.
