When You’re Serious About Water Filtration
ÖKO combines water filtration technology originally designed for use in NASA ISS (International Space Station) with an elegant bottle design made of 100% FDA compliant materials. The combination yields a unique filtration bottle which is lightweight, versatile and can deliver the highest quality water from innumerable water sources in over 140 countries.
With a filter capacity of 100 gallons, the ÖKO level-2 filter (included with every bottle), has been lab tested to remove 99.9999% of giardia lamblia & cryptosporidium, two of the most common contaminants found in open water sources worldwide.
ÖKO’s patented water bottles are made from a customized blend of plastics that have passed stringent SGS testing for FDA food contact safety. The bottle cap is made of Tritan®, a BPA-free clear hard plastic renowned for its durability and clarity. It also allows the user to see water filtration in action. The bottle’s body is made of an ultra-light polypropylene material commonly used in food storage containers. Due to the material’s high temperature resistance, it does not leach chemicals or smell when exposed to warmer temperatures.
The semi-soft nozzle and washer create functional accents and the contoured shape makes the bottle easy to grip. The Ö-ring carabiner is used to carry or hook the bottle onto a bag.
ÖKO Level-2 filtration, was originally developed for NASA and used in the ISS (International Space Station). We convert the material for consumer use in our bottles. Simply put, it is the state of-the-art in water filtration technology.
In addition to a 2 micron pore size, the material utilizes a positively charged electro-adsorption (attraction and retention) process to draw and trap harmful agents much smaller than its pore size. Charge fields, activated upon water contact extend 1 micron each to virtually close the pore to any intruding agents. ÖKO level-2 filter lab tests reflect removal of 99.994% of e-coli, 99.9999% of cryptosporidium and giardia lamblia, the most commonly found bacteria and microorganisms in lakes, streams and international water sources. A stack of over 400 such pores in the 0.8mm thickness of the filter create a “tortuous path” which a harmful agent would have to travel through in order to make it across the filter membrane.
