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 INSULATED
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.​

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®?
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.

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.

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.

      Comments about CamelBak Groove® Insulated .6L:

      I bought this bottle 6 months ago and love it. I am very picky about the taste of water and love that I can have filtered water wherever I go. I originally bought this for a trip to Disney World, where the tap water tastes horrible. It made the water drinkable for me and I bring it with me everywhere. My only complaints are that it's hard to clean the mouth piece and straw. Also, my filtered straw just broke and you aren't yet able to purchase just the straws to replace and I don't want to buy another entire bottle.

      Comments about CamelBak Groove® Insulated .6L:

      I have had this water bottle for over two years now. I fill it with ice & water. It keeps the water cold. I use it for everyday hydration and for my walks. It is very durable & long lasting. I love the fact that it has many replaceable parts. I regularly replace the filter & nozzle as recommended. It is the greatest water bottle that I have ever owned.

      Comments about CamelBak Groove® Insulated .6L:

      I LOVE THIS WATER BOTTLE. IT WAS THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT I RECEIVED (Actually, I got a different water bottle from a different company and didn't like it, so I exchanged it for this one which was a great decision.) It looks SO cool. When I walk down the hallway of my high school I feel like a swagmaster with my Groove water bottle. The only downside to this product is that you will acquire many friends who aren't in it for you, but really just wanna hang around you because you have the coolest water bottle on the face of the earth.

        I am obsessed with the water bottle! I love the fact that it filters tap water. It's way more durable than other filtering water bottles. I've had many other bottles and this one has lasted the longest and has the freshest tasting water.

        Comments about CamelBak Groove® Insulated .6L:

        I love this water bottle. My water is always cold, and it's the best when I half fill with ice and the ice slowly melts and it's hours of super cold water. Only downside is occasionally when re-assembling the straw to the filter after cleaning it, it doesn't always line up, and I'll chug air. Only other down side is the bite valve gets icky pretty quick and it's tough to clean unless you buy the brush cleaning set. I would continue to buy these for life.

        Comments about CamelBak Groove® Insulated .6L:

        I drink from this everyday, clean it everyday, and so far so good. Just that the rubber inside the cap first turned yellow, then turned orange, and now it looks reddish. That made it look cheap every time I wash it, and now I'm concerned if its sanitary to drink from. But still, the others are good, almost perfect except for the rubber part.
