CAMELBAK GROOVE® 0.6L
Turn potable (drinkable) tap water into fresh, great-tasting water anywhere you go.
Whatever tap you fill from, the Groove® guarantees that you'll always have freshly-filtered water on hand. The plant-based carbon filter removes the taste and odor from tap water as you sip. It’s the best way to ditch disposable bottles without giving up on clean, refreshing taste. Certified to remove chlorine, cadmium, lead, mercury and copper from your water.
NOTE: THE GROOVE IS NOT A MICROBIOLOGICAL FILTER BOTTLE. IT WILL NOT REMOVE BACTERIA, VIRUS, CYSTS, ETC. FROM THE WATER. PLEASE REFER TO ALL CLEAR UV PURIFIER BOTTLE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A MICROBIOLOGICAL PURIFIER BOTTLE.

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
CAN I USE THE CAMELBAK® GROOVE® IN HIGH-ALTITUDE/ LOW-PRESSURE ENVIRONMENTS? (I.E. AIRPLANES, MOUNTAIN ALTITUDES, ETC)
Yes, but with extra care. Always keep the bottle right side up and the bite valve in the closed position. Remove the straw for additional protection. Expect a bit of ""spurt"" during the first sip.
WHAT ARE THE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES (FREEZING / BOILING) THAT THE CAMELBAK® GROOVE® CAN WITHSTAND?
The CamelBak® Groove® can withstand being filled with water ranging in temperature from 34 - 100 degrees Fahrenheit. We do NOT recommend freezing water inside the bottle or boiling it. Extremely hot fluids can damage your CamelBak® Groove®.
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 bottle
