I bought this bottle to filter the hard tap water at work and act as a reminder to drink more water every day.
The reminder part works a treat; I now drink 2-3 litres a day, so I'm very hydrated.

Sadly, The Bobble has enough problems that I won't be buying any replacement filters for it. The bottle itself is fine; despite other negative reviews, I've never found it a problem to squeeze the bottle slightly and get water out of it. I will agree that sometimes it feels like it's on the verge of cracking and I wonder how long it will really last.

The main problem is with the filters. I'm on my second one, having followed the advice to replace it every 150 litres or so. When new, they are lovely - the pop up cap seals well and is easy to operate. After a couple of weeks of daily use, however, it's now so stiff that it doesn't easily pop up and in some instances I've had to grip it with my teeth and yank it up - not ideal for casual drinking. Also, as it's sealed, when you've finished a 'slurp' the air hissing back into the bottle makes enough of a background noise that my work colleagues are starting to notice. Drinking water all day is a healthy exercise but the constant comments from those I work with are making me think twice every time I drink - and that's not good.

The bottle was left in the boot of my car on a hot day and has got some blemishes where it was next to something else hot - and now it's slightly lopsided. Mind you, I would imagine the manufacturers wouldn't expect it to be stored somewhere hot so I can't really complain about that.

Overall, it filters well, and is dead easy to use, but the sticking cap and the hissing noise are enough to put me off. Healthy living has it's price and I'm prepared to pay for the product, but not the hassle of daily use!

Very difficult to drink water out of especially when you need it like when at the gym! You need to try so hard to suck the water out meaning squeezing the bottle causing the bottle to crease and crack which is not fixable. The cap on top is quite lose and doesn't secure on. The only pro is that it is BPA free and you can put a large amount of water in it...but there are other bottles like this, £13 for see through plastic is not worth it...start your search again and filter out the "bobble" bottle, you'll be glad you did so!

I use my one litre bobble every day. It works a treat and it filters a lot of the impurities out of the water. Tap water certainly tastes much better from a Bobble. It saves me buying bottled water all the time and hopefully helps the environment in the process. The only down side is that replacement filters cost £7 every two months. It would nice see this cost come down in the future. Over all a great buy.

This product is difficult to drink from and to clean, we won't be getting another one any time soon and I wouldn't recommend it to my friends!

Flimsy and cheap feeling. This bottle cost over ten quid and has the same feel as when I reuse a Buxton bottle! The base is so narrow it won't sit correctly on a flat surface and it takes an age to refill with air so drinking from it is a slow and laborious process. In my opinion you should save your money or spend a bit more and get something better.

As filter water bottles go, I'm sure that the filter does its job. But the actual plastic of the bottle itself is soooooooooo thin. Sent it back straight away as I couldn't see how the bottle plastic would withstand more than one or two uses before it became cracked or split. With a thicker plastic, it would be a 4 or 5 star product,

unless your water is disgusting, this filter just slows down the process of drinking. I don't really like the inflexible squeeze-mouth and it is just generally a bit clumsy. It looks cool but at the end of the day, I end up unscrewing the cap and drinking straight from the bottle. It's gimmicky and cool but a bit useless.

You can really taste the difference. Great to know that pollutants are being removed from my drinking water. No need to wait for a filter to go through your water before drinking as its all done for you as you glug! Great invention.
