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.

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 used this water bottle almost daily, but there was a few times that I didn't use it for about two-four days and the straw had some organic growth in it afterwards. I washed it out with vinegar and got all of it out, but it did leave a stain.

Then the stretchy part on the bite valve got a hole in it for some reason. I don't know if it is just one of those wear and tear things or what, but I could no longer drink water without getting a lot of air and making a lot of noise, so I haven't been using it since then. I do miss it though. Frustrating that there were so many problems with it.

        Comments about CamelBak Aqua Groove Insulated .6L Bottle:

        I've been using an eddy for a while, but this one is really nice. My only real complaint is how much effort it takes to create enough suction to get the water through the filter.

        Best Uses

          Comments about CamelBak Aqua Groove Insulated .6L Bottle:

          I primarily bought this bottle for camping and back packing, but I use it for all occasions, meetings, traveling, etc. The drinking straw makes it easier to use as opposed to the invert and squeeze type. It 's see-thru so you can see the water level. Filter makes water taste great. The fact it is double wall insulated prevents sweat on the outside of the bottle. I like the "handle". Easy to hold with fingers or a carabinr type device to hook it to something. The only thing I would like to see is some sort of device as a reminder to change the filter. Change intervals depend on usage. Great product.

              I bought one of these cups at Gander Mountain and absolutely love it. My friend wanted one so I ordered this one online directly from you and it leaks. I got 2 cups that day and the other one is not the color in the pic.

              I love this insulated bottle. It encourages me to drink more water and is always ready with a cool drink. Not moisture in my backpack and wonderful as a gift item to family or friends.

              I use my double insulated & filtered water bottle all day long....every day. It works fantastic and does everything I expect from a water bottle.
              CamelBak water bottles are the best I have ever tried or used.

                  Comments about CamelBak Aqua Groove Insulated .6L Bottle:

                  I use all the time and take it everywhere. It doesn't work as well as I expected in some areas. It still sweats a bit despite being insulated, it doesn't close well if you put ice in it, and it does leak just slightly. But I still love it and would recommend it to others.
