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
The bottle, 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

The bite valve on my new bottle doesn't have a slit (opening) and I can't drink from it
The self-sealing silicone can sometimes seal tightly before first use. To open, squeeze the bite valve and twist & roll between your fingertips. This should loosen the seal and open it up for drinking. If you're still experiencing problems, please request a new bite valve using our Warranty Parts Form.​

Can I put hot water in my CamelBak® Groove®?
Warm water in your CamelBak® Groove® is just fine, NOT boiling water (maximum temperature: 100 degrees Fahrenheit). Please be aware that the experience will be similar to drinking hot liquid through a straw, so use caution.

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.

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.

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.

Can I use CamelBak® Groove® when I’m hiking in the back country?
Only use the CamelBak® Groove® with potable tap water. The Fresh™ Filter contained in your CamelBak® Groove® is not a purifier and not certified to be effective against bacteria, cysts or viruses.

Can I use the CamelBak® Groove® in high-altitude/ low-pressure environments? (i.e. airplanes, mountain altitudes, etc)
Yes, but with extra care. Always keep the bottle right side up and the bite valve in the closed position. Remove the straw for additional protection. Expect a bit of "spurt" during the first sip.

Is the CamelBak® Groove® microwave safe?
Feel free to use the CamelBak Groove® to warm up liquids (i.e., up to a minute). Do NOT microwave with the cap (or straw or filter) in place as it contains metal screws that are not microwave safe.

What are the maximum temperatures (freezing / boiling) that the CamelBak® Groove® can withstand?
The CamelBak® Groove® can withstand being filled with water ranging in temperature from 34 - 100 degrees Fahrenheit. We do NOT recommend freezing water inside the bottle or boiling it. Extremely hot fluids can damage your CamelBak® Groove®.

What if I accidentally washed my Fresh™ Filter in the dishwasher?
If you accidentally wash your Fresh™ Filter in the dishwasher, we recommend that you discard it and place a new Fresh™ Filter in your bottle.

        This is my favorite bottle to pack, especially on a plane trip. I can get through security and fill up at any faucet in the airport--and get the great taste of freshly filtered water. No money wasted on bottled water and not another disposable bottle sent to an overseas recycling plant.

        I bought this for a friend as a replacement of an earlier Camelbak model whose hard plastic tab on the mouthpiece ended up breaking off. After opening it and attempting to use it, he gave it back to me saying that the straw wouldn't allow water to be sucked up through it. Ironically, the "Groove" model that I bought had no slit in the mouthpiece! So, biting down on it didn't open a hole to suck the water through it. Looking all over the packaging, I could not find an indication that you had to do this (make your own slit in the mouthpiece), nor did I find any directions to this, so I just took a pair of scissors and sliced it open. I find it odd that a company would allow a product to make it passed their Quality Control Department without such an integral check to see if the bottle had a slit in the mouthpiece and thus in working order. Makes me wonder if the filter over time will be defective as well.

        Comments about CamelBak Groove® .75L:

        I got this smaller bottle to take with me to places where I can't carry filtered water. It fits easily in my purse, and stays closed on top. It does sweat, however, so inside my purse sometimes gets wet from the condensation. The worst part, though, is you have to use a LOT of suction to suck the water through the straw-filter. I have sensitive teeth, and this is sometimes not so comfortable for me. I still use my old better bottle a lot because of this. The water does taste good, though, if you can suck it up!

        Cap Valve Leaks

        • Great for work

        Comments about CamelBak Groove® .75L:

        I use this bottle everyday at work as we have an abundance of unfiltered water fountains. Overall, I love the bottle, but after just three months, the valve that connects the cap to the bottle has cracked. This reduces the suction, produces tons of bubbles, and makes drinking very noisy. Worst of all, Camelbak doesn't sell replacement caps for this bottle.

          Comments about CamelBak Groove® .75L:

          I used it for school where water fountains are abundant...so not much reason to complain about the volume. The rubber mouth can get dirty sometimes like when I dropped it on the floor...unluckily it hit the mouth. The straw can sometimes get loose,it is annoying when you try to suck the water up bt it fails, so u hav to open the top and tighten it. It happens sometimes but not everytime...other than that this is a great bottle...I find it portable as I bring it to shopping malls, libraries and school..GREAT PRODUCT!!!

          • Helps With Taste Of Water

          Comments about CamelBak Groove® .75L:

          My wife bought this for me for Christmas. Its a great little bottle. I have dropped it multiple times (concrete, asphalt, stairs)and it only got a few small scratches. I love the mini filter. It helps make the water at work more bearable. It is easy to change the filter when that time comes. I do wish it would hold more water, or at least there were different volume sized bottles. I have run into an issue that can't be fixed though. There is a bendable tube that connects the inside filter mount to the bite valve. This tube has started to leak air when I try to drink the water out of the bottle. This may not seem bad, but you suck in a lot of air this way. Gives your stomach issues. There is no replacement for this part. The only solution is to buy a new bottle....Over all, great product.

          Comments about CamelBak Groove® .75L:

          The design and sturdy structure of the plastic and filter are great! It's wonderful knowing that anywhere I go in the states, I'll have tasty clean tap water. My only complaint is that the mouth piece on the lid doesn't always stay locked into place so water sometiems leaks and I'm afraid that it will get much dirtier since the mouth piece doesn't have a cover over it. Wish there was a way to put a cap/cover over where you drink from. That's one reason why my husband doesn't use the straw on his camelbak bottle.
