you wouldn't need this filter rubbish gimmick up in Scotland, we have the best water in the world, and it's straight from the tap, has even been proved to be better than most if not all bottled rubbish, so there:p
Having used one I can say they're terrible. The reviews are right - they leak everywhere and you have to suck on them HARD to get water to come out (not only embarrassing but loud)

I wish there was a class action against Brita to get our money back for this horrible product

Have to agree with this, so difficult to drink out of, with or without the straw!
I have one of these and im also happy with it at £10, mine has never leaked nor is it dificult to use but i did read on amazon that there are 2 different models
"one filters 160 litres of water" (Argos)
Amazon deal includes 4 filters. Surely this is a year supply for only £6? yet again it says "4 Filter discs are included, each lasting for approximately 1 week".(Amazon) Confused

One disc gives great-tasting water for the whole week (up to 20 litres).

I got mine from sainsburys for £4 down from £12. Can't say it makes much difference for Scottish water..

​Dundee Scotland, the water has chlorine added amongst others giving a distinct chemical smell and taste. Since I grew up with chlorine free water out in the sticks in Holland the taste and smell of the chlorine in the Dundee water makes me gag and thus I bought this working but unpractical water filter bottle.
I picked this up yesterday on Amazon and its of a good quality, the filters make a small difference (not sure what to expect really) was cheaper than most other similar products, good deal !
Bought one the other day and Ive thoroughly loved it. I find the straw very easy to use and you don't have to suck hard at all to get water out. So far, mine hasnt leaked yet, only bought this because it was cheap and my other water bottle started to leak.
For me personally, so far so good. Great price
Can agree with other reviews on here.

Me and my partner both have one. (for around 6 months). They are excellent. We live in any area with very poor water quality and it makes all the difference. Clearly if you live in an area with nice tasting water, these will be fairly useless to you and you'd be better off with a standard bottle.

In response to the issues above:

If you are finding it hard to suck the water out, you probably haven't soaked the filter for long enough. It needs to be properly soaked for several minutes. You could also try slightly unscrewing the top a little bit to allow a little more air inside the bottle. I had this issue at first but having read reviews online, the soaking did the trick.

Mine hasn't leaked at all either, and I leave it (tightly screwed on of course) in my bag all the time.

I would fully recommend this product, having paid £10 for it, and it has encouraged me to drink far more water than I ever have before.

Rubbish?

whatdotheyknow.com/req…ide

Scottish Water confirms that it contains various chemicals in a FOI request. It is likely to be no better than water in England, sadly! Thankfully, Scottish water doesn't contain any Fluoride. Though, these bottles don't filter out anything like that anyway.

I like my Britta - I've not problems with sucking water out - just make sure the lids on tight

however there are issues with leaking .. from the bottle that is, not me .. from time to time its prone to a bit of a leak so make sure you have some tissues handy!

How much is Brita paying you?
I have one, my other half has one too

No issues, easy to use, no leaks, no noise, no "hard sucking" either - just a simple water bottle!

I dropped mine in the gym and broke the lid recently, and Britta sent a replacement - excellent customer service
Showing as £10 and I have prime?
Now temporarily out of stock, but available to order at £6.

I wonder how much taxpayers' money FOI requests like that waste?

Scottish water will likely contain fluoride as it occurs naturally. Avoid tea too.

The maximum allowance for FOI requests is up to £600 for Government bodies. Other public bodies, £450 I believe. Though, if you wanted to know the exact amount spent on fulfilling FOI requests (in Scotland, or otherwise) you could...FOIA request it! Personally, I don't consider it to be a 'waste'. I consider it to be one of the greatest legal innovations of this century.

You are correct, my lack of precision distorted my meaning. What I should have said is that 'Scottish Water do not add any fluoride to their water supply'. Also, I don't drink tea.

Yes but the request was for information that is already available and the request was accusing and misinformed. FOI's can be very useful of course but that example really wasn't in my opinion.
So one filter lasts 20L and you get 4.
So if you drink 2 bottles of this a day, its only going to last just over 2 months, then you have to buy MORE filters.
Thats going to get expensive.

Rubbish you say, expert are we, believe everything you read do we
well can't say much for up North if they having probs wae their water system at the mo, i should have said Glasgow, but what i stand by is that Scottish Water is far superior than english water, don't ever dare compare, I worked in Canary Warf when it was first getting built and was told by my english colleagues not to drink the water in London, only btld water, that says a lot really, did brush my teeth, and after rinsing with it, it left a stale mucky taste in my mouth, for that reason i have never touched it again, btld water for my T or Coffee whenever i go over the border again, and when having a bath/shower in england what a weird feeling especially as the soap wouldn't lather???, and the water was a slight tinge of brown if i remember, how do the english get round this if the soap doesn't even lather, has the water improved now, answers on a postcard to wee Rab Nesbitt, Govan Rd, Glasgow.

What the BBC News Magazine had to say: Hard Water causes build up of lime-scale and deposits in pipes and boilers, and even stops soap lathering (_;), hence why the english seem to have major problems with their kettles, washing machines and boilers to name a few..
As with us Scots we don't really have an issue with our SOFT water making our appliances last way much longer than them

Don't disagree probably should have said in Glasgow it's defo fine, and never been up in Arab country i can't comment but do agree with you about Holland water, been there a couple times and at least the water was far cleaner and yes nice clean taste, way better than the english water infact i think Spanish water (never tasted it) would probably be better than theirs as well X)
