Experts Agree: Water Filters Do Nothing To Kill Bacteria, Viruses Or Germs! Do This Instead To Protect Yourself


Like most people living in a first-world country, I always assumed the water I was drinking was safe.

We always used the filtered water from our fridge… and we even bought a fancy filter pitcher to use with the tap (you may have the same one in your home).

I thought that was enough to keep us safe. All the water we drink at home is filtered… that should be plenty, right?!

But a couple of months back, I stumbled onto a mommy blog that made my jaw drop… and it completely changed my opinion about the water we drink.

I Was Shocked To Learn That Our Water Supplies Are Nowhere NEAR As Safe As I Thought

The blog post was talking about an investigation done by the Environment Working Group (EWG).

They spent 3 years analyzing the results of almost 20 MILLION drinking water tests in the US… 

And what they discovered wasn’t pretty.

They found that 316 (out of 324 tested) contaminants such as lead, arsenic, chlorine, and even E. coli are likely swimming in YOUR drinking water right now.1, 2

The worst part is, this is COMPLETELY LEGAL!

The contaminant levels are within the EPA’s standards…

… BUT they are FAR ABOVE the levels scientists have determined are harmful to our health.

In fact, the legal limit is often HUNDREDS of times higher than the limit recommended by public health agencies.3

It’s no wonder so many of us are getting sick!

To Make Matters Worse, Most Water Filters – Even Expensive Ones – Can Actually Make Your Water WORSE!

As it turns out, the filters we all trust aren’t nearly as safe as we thought.

And while it’s healthy for kids to be exposed to some germs, I was shocked to find out that in many cases, filters can make your water even dirtier than when it comes out of the tap!

See, while new filters can strip out certain contaminants, it only takes a couple of months before the filters get so dirty that they actually pollute your water more than they clean it.

With a family of four, it turns out we were supposed to be swapping the filter on our fridge every month.

This would have cost us almost $500 per year!!


But it gets worse…

Filters Aren’t Just A Breeding Ground for Bacteria… They Don’t Remove Some Of The Most Dangerous Contaminants

You see, while modern filters are designed to strip out chemicals, plastics, and even radiation, they do nothing to kill bacteria or germs like salmonella, coliform, or even fecal matter.

As you can imagine, the thought of me and my kids drinking salmonella and poo particles had me wanting to burn the house down.

Thankfully, we live in the 21st Century… and there are now much, much better ways to keep your water safe and pure than ever before. 

That mommy blog I was reading didn’t just tell me about the problem. It also suggested a solution: UVBrite.

Apparently, UVBrite is a new self-cleaning water bottle that purifies your water at the press of a button.

That means you don’t have to spend hundreds on replacing filters… you can take it with you EVERYWHERE… and, it actually kills the germs that filters can’t catch.

After I saw they had already sold 140,000 of them with tons of positive reviews, I decided to order one… and after a few days of using it, I went back and ordered a full set of them for my husband and kids. It’s THAT amazing!

What is UVBrite, anyway?

UVBrite is a new high-tech water bottle that has a built-in UV-C light, which you can activate to quickly purify the water inside.

To use it, simply fill up your water bottle and press the button to activate the UV-C light purification system. UVBrite will purify your drinking water in as little as three minutes.

UVBrite uses the same proven UV-C light technology found in hospitals, dental offices, and even the International Space Station to kill 99.99% of germs, which gave me a lot of confidence.

Even better, UVBrite’s purification process ALSO cleans the bottle itself – so I don’t have to keep reminding my kids to wash their bottles every other day. (Those things can get nasty quick… thanks to the buildup of germs that UVBrite eliminates, but most filters miss.) We just pop it in the dishwasher once every 3-6 months and it’s good as new.

Made and Shipped from the USA. Shipping is quick: 3-5 days!

It’s a one-time purchase, too. The water bottle uses a rechargeable battery that can purify up to 60 bottles of water on a single charge…

And UVBrite’s UV-C light lasts long enough to purify up to 29,000 gallons of water – which is more than the average person will drink in their lifetime.

Of course, my kids’ favorite part is how cool it looks. I have to admit, they make a good point… but my favorite part is that it’s simply an amazing water bottle. It’s made from double-walled BPA-free stainless steel with a brilliant design that keeps water hot or cold for up to 12 hours.

How does the UVBrite self-cleaning water bottle work?

Using UVBrite to purify your water is easy:

  1. Fill up your water bottle
  2. Press the button
  3. Wait 3-5 minutes as the UV-C light kills up to 99.99% of the bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa, and microbes crawling in your water
  4. Enjoy pure water – anywhere, any time, from almost any water source in the world!

The UV-C light inside of the cap works to kill bacteria and germs by destroying their DNA. This, in turn, eliminates their ability to spread.

And while UV-C light is normally used for industrial level disinfection purposes, a group of tech-savvy entrepreneurs figured out how to pack that same technology right into the water bottle’s cap – with zero risk of accidental exposure.

That means it isn’t just easy, it’s 100% safe to use – even for my kids!

Best of all: UVBrite can make almost any source of water in the world safe to drink

Not only does UVBrite keep your water (and itself) clean and pure at all times, it’s also the perfect way to keep yourself protected from potentially dangerous water sources – whether it’s your home tap or a microbe-infested river in the middle of nowhere.

There’s a simple rule when using UVBrite: If you can see through the water, you can purify it.

That means UVBrite works on all tap water, wells, water fountains, rivers, streams, and any other source of transparent water – anywhere in the world.

This is great for my husband, who drinks tap water at the office… and we always bring our UVBrites whenever we go camping. And you better believe we’re bringing it with us on our upcoming trip to Mexico!

Who needs UVBrite the most?

After reading comments on that mommy blog, I realized that UVBrite is perfect for anyone who wants regular access to clean, safe, and purified drinking water – so, basically everyone!

But UVBrite has become especially popular among certain people, such as:

  • Urban commuters: If you’re constantly on-the-go, you’ll need access to safe, pure drinking water throughout the day. The UVBrite prevents the use of plastic, single-use water bottles while offering access to clean water – combined with the minimal need for cleaning and its sleek look, it’s no wonder so many people are replacing their old-school water bottles with UVBrite!
  • Travelers: Whether you’re jet-setting off to Mexico or enjoying a weekend getaway to the mountains, you always have peace of mind knowing you’re drinking safe water. 
  • Athletes: Whether you’re hitting the gym, running around the track, or hitting a round of golf, the UVBrite will purify your water even when you’re getting a sweat sesh in.
  • Parents: Whether you’re dropping the kids off at soccer practice, running errands, or squeezing a workout in over your lunch break, UVBrite ensures you have continuous access to safe drinking water.
  • Hikers, bikers, and travelers: Spending the day outside? UVBrite ensures you have access to clean drinking water, even without a water fountain in sight. 
  • The environmentally-conscious: UVBrite is helping to eliminate the more than 8 million tons of plastic bottles that end up in our oceans each year by giving people a reusable bottle they’ll actually feel great about using.

Bottom line: UVBrite helps you enjoy clean drinking water – and a clean water bottle – no matter where you are

UVBrite is clearly a revolutionary innovation, and it’s already given me and my family peace of mind about the safety of our water.

No longer do we have to cross our fingers and hope our municipality is purifying our water supply effectively (studies show they probably aren’t)... with UVBrite, we’re in complete control of our water safety.

Honestly, I would have probably bought it simply because of how much better it is than my old water bottle… but the fact that it empowers me to drink any source of water freely really pushes it over the top.

In short, UVBrite is the best water bottle I’ve ever seen, and it’s restored my confidence in the water I drink. I won’t be surprised when everyone is using one – at home, on the go, and around the world!

Thousands Of People LOVE The UV Brite!


I don’t do many product reviews... particularly positive + ones, but this product has truly earned it! The technology is in the water-proof lid, charged by a USB cord that’s provided. It utilizes UVC technology, the same used in sterilizing medical equipment, so you know it’s working for a more powerful clean! The purification process is completely silent and I really love the sleek simple design. I tested it this week by leaving water in it Monday - Wednesday and letting it clean itself this morning - it had no smell or metallic taste like every other water bottle I’ve ever used! This water bottle is a GAME CHANGER and I will be purchasing one for each member in my family. Well done UVB!!!!!


I bought this bottle for disinfecting water and self clean the bottle after long use. Bought it mainly for office use.
- Good feel because of anodizing on outer surface. Gives good grip
- Reasonable cost for bottle with for UV features
- Thermal isolation
- 2 modes of UV disinfection regular and power mode. Easy to operate the modes.
- UVC is the right wavelength for disinfection. Most bottle don't use the correct wavelength of UV light.

I bought this after watching shark tank. Saw the original maker of this technology and was curious on if it worked. I didn’t feel like spending $100 on a blue light bottle and figured these spin offs probably do about the same. Being tired of water bottles smelling and constant cleaning I figured we would give this a try. We have used it for almost a month and haven’t washed it to test. Still smells good so either this thing works or my mouth is super fresh. The light also gives a piece of mind living on well water. Very easy to use and the USB C connector is great. Glad to see these companies adopting recent tech.
Overall I would recommend. We still suggest routine cleaning, but we put it to the test. So far very pleased. Also not to mention it’s insulated so no sweating and stays hot or cold.


I love my water bottle! I have bought so many different (there are many kinds, believe me) and never been happy with any of them. I still kept buying them all not knowing what I was looking for. Until this bottle, my search has come to and end. Drinking water from this bottle gives me peace of mind knowing it's completely sanitized and yet doesn't change the taste or smell. I'm very happy with my purchase. I would love to gift my friends this water bottle too especially those with kids and those who travel.


This is a great value bottle! I didn't want to spend $100 on a self cleaning water bottle and this one was much more affordable. It works perfectly and does exactly what it's supposed to. I've been using it for over 3 days now and the water has been tasting fine. The bottle doesn't smell yet and usually it smells by the second day. I'd definitely recommend this!


Easily the best water bottle I own. Ergonomically designed, UV feature kinda gives different taste (depends on the person), travel friendly. Very nice bottle and sleek design. Fortunate to have come across this product.

I love this water bottle and it’s so simple to use …just charge it and after it is charged it lasts a long time. You just press the button on the top and it cleans the bottle and the water

Purchased two of these for a vacation to Mexico. Used them in the airport with bottle fillers and at the resort we stayed at. No issues with them and more cost effective than other options to purchase.

chris chan

Extremely easy to use cleaning function which gives total peace of mind when i refill the bottle at public places, gyms etc. Weighs almost the same as my other bottle so its also easy to carry around. Perfect for everyday use!

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How do I know it’s working?

Although you can’t “watch it work” because the UV-C light is too powerful for the human eye, the technology in UVBrite is proven and widely used in hospitals, dentist offices, and even on the International Space Station.

UVBrite has also been independently tested and confirmed effective at killing up to 99.99% of viruses, bacteria, and microbes.

That means you can trust UVBrite to be working as long as the system is operating normally. To ensure that you always know that the system is operating normally, we have designed the circuit to tell you when it’s not working. If the UV-C LED does not work, the cycle will not start. The LEDs will flash and turn off.

That said, this is unlikely to ever occur for you. The UV-C LED that is used is of very high quality with a rated life of over 10,000 hours of continuous use. Additionally, UVBrite includes a built-in safety lock to prevent accidental exposure to UV-C light.

Question: How much water does it hold?

UVBrite is the perfect size for everyday use and holds 18.6oz (550ml) of water. It will easily fit into most cup holders and slide right into your purse or backpack for easy carrying.

Question: How long do the batteries last?

UVBrite can purify up to 60 bottles of water on a single charge, which means it typically lasts several weeks between charges. Charging is quick (it fully charges in just 2.5 hours) and easy with the included USB-C charging cable.

Question: How long will it keep my water hot or cold?

UVBrite’s Dual Wall 304 Stainless Steel will keep water hot or cold for up to 12 hours.

Question: What types of water can I purify with the bottle?

UVBrite is designed to purify “potable“ or clear water to ensure that it is free from microbes. This does not work with murky water or water that is not clear as it prevents the UV-C light from fully penetrating the water. You can use it to purify tap water, hose water, and even water from streams or rivers.

Question: Will it really kill all the germs?

The technology is proven and is used in hospitals, dentists' offices, and even on the International Space Station. The UVBrite bottle has also been independently tested and confirmed effective and killing up to 99.99% of viruses, bacteria, and microbes.

Question: When can I expect my order?

FAST! We ship all orders within 24-48 hours of receiving them. On average, UVBrite is delivered within 3-5 business days in the United States. For orders outside the USA, please allow 2-8 weeks for your order to arrive. Delivery times will vary based on country.
