FAQ

Do I need to clean the pitcher before first use?
Before first use, we recommend that you disassemble all CamelBak Relay components, except the filter, and wash them with warm water and soap. The filter should be pre-rinsed according to the instruction in the user guide. Never wash the filter with soap.

Is CamelBak Relay dishwasher safe?
All components of the CamelBak Relay are dishwasher safe, excluding the carbon filter.

How do I clean CamelBak Relay?
The Relay system can be washed by hand or in a dishwasher. If you use a dishwasher, use the top rack of the dishwasher and avoid high-heat settings like “sanitary clean” or “heat boost” which may distort plastic components. Never wash the filter with soap or place in a dishwasher.

Do I need to clean the Fresh Filter?
Other than the initial pre-rinse before first use, the filter does not require cleaning. If desired, you may rinse the filter with cool clean water.

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 system.

I ran the Relay pitcher through the dishwasher and now the latches are too tight (or too loose).
The heat of the dishwasher cycle can affect the stiffness of the latches, and this is normal. The flexible gasket material provides reliable sealing while allowing for variation in latch tightness. If you are having trouble opening tight latches, it helps to place a finger under the corner of the latch to open it.

A component in my pitcher is broken or doesn’t work. Can I get a replacement?
Relay is covered by our Got Your Bak Lifetime Guarantee. Contact our warranty department for assistance. If you just need to replace your filter, these can be purchased here at camelbak.com, Target and other participating retailers. On camelbak.com you can even purchase a filter subscription and we will ship Fresh Filters to you on an interval that you determine.

Can the Relay pitcher be stored in the refrigerator? How about the counter?
Absolutely. The compact design of the Fresh Filter means Relay is smaller overall than competing 10-cup pitchers (without giving up any water volume), so Relay fits in more places in your fridge.

Can I put fruit (lemon slices, etc), drink mixes, etc in my pitcher?
CamelBak Relay is designed and intended for use with water only. Anything other than water in the basin will pass through the outlet filter as it pours, taking away the flavor and potentially reducing the life of the outlet filter. Anything you want added to the water should be put into the glass or bottle that you’re pouring filter water into.

Is the CamelBak Relay microwave safe?
Do NOT microwave your CamelBak Relay. The lid contains a magnet that is not microwave safe.

      Great Water Filtration Pitcher

            Comments about CamelBak Relay™:

            I've had this water filter pitcher for three weeks now and can say that it is far better than the Brita filter I was using previously. First of all, the filter filters water fast. No need to wait and it tastes great. It has a double filtration system which filters water when you pour it in the pitcher and when you are pouring out. Second, I like the fact that it is sealed. My Brita pitcher would spill water all over my refrigerator after filling it up. And lastly it holds plenty of water. No need to refill after each use. Filters are a little pricey but supposedly last longer than the competitors. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product.

            We use this product daily to rid our drinking water of municipal chlorine and other chemicals. The filtered water tastes terrific and the filtration process has zero lag time, unlike other water filtering pitchers I have used in the past.

              We use the Relay to filter our water at home. It filters as fast as you fill the pitcher; no waiting around. I value CamelBak's commitment to great outdoor product, so it's nice to see the company making something for home use as well.

              Comments about CamelBak Relay™:

              We drink a lot of water around the house and felt frustrated every time we had to refill our Brita because it takes too long. The Relay has been a great addition to our kitchen and now saves us a lot of time because of how fast this product filters the water. It doesn't spill, the water tastes great and the Relay has a compact size that fits nicely in the fridge. It is also dishwasher safe which is a plus. We definitely will recommend this to friends.

                Comments about CamelBak Relay™:

                Been a loyal Brita user for years but am so glad I made the change. Absolutely worth the initial cost to switch, will never look back.
                This new pitcher solves all the problems I've experienced with Brita: it fills faster (yeah, I get water when the last person didn't refill!), it doesn't slosh (my wood floors thank you!) and it seems to clear more of the chlorine than Brita did (my finicky family thanks you!) My only request is that they had come out with this product sooner because I am one happy camper with this awesome new pitcher. Huge leap in benefits, happy every time I pour myself a glass.

                  Most impressed with the SPEED with which it fills/empties (no waiting to make tea in the morning) and the ACCURACY with which it pours. The Relay pours flawlessly - when completely full as well as when almost empty and you have to tilt to a 90 degree angle - the balance is great and just never drips! Water tastes clean and smooth. Rectangular shape is space efficient - holds a lot of water but never feels too heavy - fits in fridge door.

                    Comments about CamelBak Relay™:

                    My Brita pitcher bit the dust and I was dragging my feet getting a replacement. I decided to try Relay and although skeptical at first, I quickly realized how much more convenient Relay was compared to Brita. It filters water quickly so I don't have to multitask in the kitchen when filling up the pitcher. It also doesn't mold near the filter like my Brita did, which was always an inconvenience to maintain. The top lid is also more secure locking with the pitcher so no more overflow spills. Definitely recommend this to friends that use filtered water.

                      The Relay has been a great addition to my kitchen. I love how quickly it fills up and is ready to pour. I can't believe I use to wait for so long for my old Brita to fill up! The lid snaps on in place so you never have to worry about spillage both filling it up and pouring. Its narrow shape is perfect for my smaller fridge. And the finishing touch, the water tastes great! I've been converted to the Relay.

                        My family has kept this water pitcher next to the sink for the past week and it's been the go-to water source in the house. My 2 and 4 year old kids are asking for 'clear water' - in reference to the Cbak pitcher. No need for bottled water in the house with this pitcher - water tastes excellent. Nice product CamelBak - keep'em coming
