The happiest of hump days to you all! I’m coming atcha today with a kitchen item I covet: The CamelBak Relay!
CamelBak was one of the many AMAZING sponsors at the Blend Retreat. They provided us with an awesome water bottle for our hike as well as the CamelBak Relay, a water filtration pitcher that allows you to filter at the speed of your faucet.
Before getting this pitcher, I was using a Brita filter system. It drove me nuts! You had to fill up the lid and wait for the water to trickle down into the filter before you could have any water. If, say, your boyfriend just filled up the lid and put the pitcher in the fridge to chill, and you, unaware of his recent lid-filling endeavor go to pour yourself a glass of water before the water has finished filtering from lid to pitcher, WHOOSH (<— that’s the sound of water spilling) – water… all over the floor/table/your pretty new dress. So then you’re waterless, have to clean up a big spill, have to refill the pitcher and wait for it to filter all over again. It’s a pain.
The first time I used the CamelBak Relay, I was in awe! You pour water in through the lid, but it filters super fast right into the filter. No waiting for the lid to fill up. No waiting to pour your water. No spillage mishaps. And, most importantly, no ruined dresses! CamelBak for the win!
Here’s how it works:
- The CamelBak Relay has a double-filter design that removes chloramine, chlorine, taste, and odors not once but twice – every time you fill and every time you pour!
- Each Fresh Filter is made with plant-based activated carbon that lasts for up to four months. – Another feature I love is the filter time tracking dial. When you replace the filter, you move the dial over to whatever month you’re in and it will tell you what month you should be replacing the filter. No trying to remember.
- The lid locks into place and is spill-proof! This is a HUGE step up from my old Brita filter.
- Holds 10 cups of water! That means I don’t have to refill it nearly as often as my Brita.
I am so happy that I was introduced to this water filter. It saves me time. It saves me from cleaning up massive water spills. It takes up less space in my fridge, and I get deliciously filtered water in a jiffy. It’s amazing what a gal can get done while she’s not waiting for water to trickle down or cleaning up a water spill only to have to refill the pain-in-the-but filter again. So huge thanks to CamelBak for saving me time and giving me tasty hydration! I have officially retired the Brita.
