BEFORE USING THE GROOVE
Give your Fresh Filter a quick 15-second rinse the first time you use it to dislodge any harmless, loose particles of carbon, then set it aside, as no additional cleaning is recommended.
If you accidentally run your filter through the dishwasher, discard and replace it with a new filter.
BEFORE CLEANING THE GROOVE
Remove the carbon filter as it is not dishwasher safe.
CLEANING THE GROOVE STAINLESS
The Groove Stainless bottle can be easily cleaned with a bottle brush using warm water and mild soap. The straw, bite valve and cap are dishwasher-safe. Simply remove the straw and bite valve from the cap and place in the top rack for washing, or hand-wash in warm water and mild soap.
CLEANING THE LID
The bite valve, straw and lid can be cleaned in the top rack of the dishwasher or by hand with warm, soapy water. Pull off the bite valve and straw from the cap. If you like to use a bottle brush, we don’t recommend forcing a brush through the Bite Valve slit. If you have the brush kit, run the small brush through the straw.
For a deeper cleaning, add a drop of mild soap or tablespoon of bleach to a clean glass jar filled with water. Drop the bite valve, straw and cap into the solution, and tightly close the jar’s lid. Shake the mixture around for 30 seconds, and then let the parts soak for about 15 minutes. Rinse and shake dry.
To re-assemble the lid:
Flip the stem collar (the component the bite valve attached to originally) to the open position. Orient the bite valve so the finger tab points towards the front of the cap. Push the bite valve firmly onto the stem collar. Press the straw back into place on the bottom of the lid. Ensure the straw covers the notches completely.
FAQ on the Camelbak Groove Water Bottle with Built-in Filter
WHY STAINLESS STEEL AND NOT ALUMINUM?
When CamelBak designs a product, we look for the best materials to ensure taste-free hydration. We chose stainless steel rather than aluminum because it is stronger, harder and more scratch-resistant, making a more durable long-lasting bottle for all your adventures. Unlike aluminum, which requires an inner coating or lining to protect the metal, stainless steel is coating-free.
WHAT’S THE CLEAR THING ON TOP OF THE CAP? DO I REMOVE IT OR CUT IT TO DRINK?
The CamelBak Bite Valve is a patented feature that provides easy drinking and spill-proof safety. Do NOT remove or cut this piece to drink. Simply bite it slightly and sip as you would out of a straw.
IS IT HARD TO DRINK FROM THE CAMELBAK® GROOVE®?
No. Drinking water from CamelBak Groove is easy and fast. CamelBak Groove employs Bite Valve technology - simply bite it slightly and sip as you would out of a straw. A recent study by Pepperdine University revealed that people who drink from CamelBak Bottles drink up to 24% more water than people who drink from other reusable bottles or plastic disposable bottles. So CamelBak® Groove® is so easy to drink from that it can help you be better hydrated.
CAN I PUT HOT WATER IN MY CAMELBAK GROOVE®?
Yes. Hot water, NOT boiling water (maximum temperature: 100 degrees Fahrenheit), can be used in the CamelBak Groove. However, please be aware that the experience will be similar to drinking hot liquid through a straw, so use caution when doing so.
CAN I PUT ICE IN MY CAMELBAK GROOVE?
Yes. Feel free to fill the bottle with ice, but be sure to leave enough room in the bottle for the filter housing and tube assembly when the cap is replaced.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF I PUT ELIXIR, SPORTS DRINK OR JUICE IN THE CAMELBAK GROOVE®?
The CamelBak Groove is designed and intended for use with water only. The filter may remove the flavor from these types of beverages, leaving you with unsavory water.
CAN A CHILD USE THE CAMELBAK GROOVE?
Children age 5 and under should not use the CamelBak Groove. The Bite Valve could become dislodged and pose a choking risk.
WHAT ARE THE BOTTLE AND CAP MADE FROM?
All CamelBak bottles are constructed with materials carefully selected for their safety, durability, and ease of use. All materials are BPA-free, and safe for use in a hydration bottle. The CamelBak Groove is made from either Tritan or Stainless Steel. CamelBak does not use materials that contain harmful phthalates.
Tritan is a copolyester polymer made by the Eastman Company. Tritan makes CamelBak Groove vibrant, clear, durable, dishwasher-safe and 100% BPA-free and free of harmful phthalates.
The CamelBak Groove cap is an assembly of plastic materials made primarily from food-grade polypropylene selected for exceptional durability and safety. The Bite Valve is constructed with high grade silicone for life long, taste free performance; the straw is made from polyethylene, the same material used in milk bottles.
CAN I USE CAMELBAK GROOVE WHEN I’M TRAVELING ABROAD?
Only use the CamelBak Groove with potable tap water. The Fresh Filter contained in your CamelBak Groove does not remove harmful microscopic pathogens that may be contained in tap water outside of the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
About Camelbak, the company
If you have found yourself wondering— with the unlimited amount of time you have reclaimed by texting instead of emailing— what CamelBak is really like, read through our mission statement and values.
AN IDEA BORN FROM THE MOST BASIC HUMAN NEED — THIRST
Bicycle enthusiast, Michael Eidson, is competing in the "Hotter'N Hell 100." And that's exactly what it is: a 100-mile road race in the grueling summer heat of Wichita Falls, Texas. Water is vital to surviving the race, and there are few places to refill a water bottle. Eidson, an emergency medical technician by trade, decides to fill an IV bag with water and slip it into a white tube sock. Yes, a tube sock. Then he stuffs the contraption into the back of his bike jersey, throws the thin hose over his shoulder and clamps it with a clothespin.
Hands-free hydration is born. And Eidson is able to drink as he pedals...while the other racers laugh and fiddle with their water bottles.
OPERATION HYDRATION — THE ROAD TO SURVIVAL
Jeff Wemmer, a competitive cyclist who fell hard for CamelBak, was so impressed by the product that he started bringing packs to races to sell them. Talk about a fan. CamelBak eventually hired him, and in 1993, Jeff embarked on a road trip to keep the start-up running during very tough times.
Company lore has it that Jeff visited bike shops from Florida to California, pitching our renegade product from the back of his motorcycle. Each order Jeff faxed back to the factory literally breathed another day of life back into CamelBak.
THE REST IS HISTORY
It took courage, conviction and imagination to evolve from an IV bag in a tube sock sold by a motorcycle-driven sales force of one. Camelbak's core values remain the same and drive everything they do - from inventing the hydration category to becoming the world's leading maker of hydration solutions.
Oh yeah...about those bikers who laughed at Eidson? Well, chances are they've got a CamelBak strapped to their back or in their bike cage these days. Go figure...
