Strange taste, too much air
on January 30, 2012
I researched many different filtering water bottles and decided on the EcoFlo because it claimed to have the best actual filter for taste, chemicals, and pathogens. I tried using this bottle multiple times with different tap water. Each time, the water tasted a bit strange. Also, it does take a bit of work to squeeze the bottle and suck water from the straw, which causes you to swallow a lot of air while you are drinking water which can lead to gas. I then tried using this just as a mini portable filter and squeezing the water into a cup to drink. However, I could still taste a difference in the water not being as clean. I compared filtered water with this bottle and with a PUR pitcher and the PUR filtered water tasted much smoother. I wish PUR would make a water bottle with a filter.
