About LARQ Water Bottles

Did anyone else read Uglies by Scott Westerfeld growing up? I can’t be the only one since, rumor has it, it’s going to be adapted to film soon.

Anyway, I won’t go too into detail, but it’s set in a futuristic dystopian world where the main character is gifted a water bottle to help her survive in a wasteland.

This water bottle isn’t just any regular old water bottle though. It can filter water so well that another character jokes that it could even filter pee. Gross… but talented.

So, when I first heard of LARQ, the company using PureVis technology to remove 99.9% of harmful matter from water, my mind immediately pictured that fun futuristic story that I read all the way back in the sixth grade, but is it futuristic anymore? OR HAVE WE ARRIVED TO THE FUTURE?! This technological feat certainly makes it feel that way.

Overview of LARQ Water Bottles

LARQ’s PureVis technology utilizes UV light to kill off nasty bacteria, protozoa, and more. This is a much better strategy than the harmful chemicals people usually resort to, but that’s another story.

While UV light is no friend to your skin– don’t worry; it is contained properly inside the LARQ bottle– it has proven time and time again that it can fight off harmful agents just as well as your leading disinfectant wipe –better even, seeing as how the wipes can disinfect surfaces but not the air or water.

This also includes mold! Mold spores tend to crop up anywhere there is moisture, and trust me, there is a lot of moisture inside your water bottle. If there’s not, you’re doing something wrong.

Who Can Benefit From LARQ Water Bottles?

Seeing as how it’s recommended that every human being drink a certain amount of ounces to a gallon of water a day, I think it’s safe to say that anyone would benefit from having a LARQ Water Bottle.

However, if you can’t trust the water in your home or if you are outdoorsy and like to hike or camp a lot, then LARQ may feel more like a necessity. Take a day of hiking for instance.

Instead of lugging a gallon water bottle, you can bring a light 17 oz or 25 oz LARQ water bottle with you and refill using the water fountains (if available) or creeks along the way. Usually, I would never go within ten feet of a trail water fountain.

I once swabbed one for a class I took on microbiology. It wasn’t pretty. But if LARQ can eradicate the germs then why not?

On another note, do you and your family feel as though you’re constantly fighting off colds and other illnesses? LARQ can ensure that the responsible germ isn’t reappearing in your water bottle.

And what about those of us wanting to minimize our carbon footprint? You might be saying, “Well, any reusable water bottle can do that,” but can it do that without harboring bacteria? Most reusable water bottles aren’t dishwasher safe or are too deep for the dishwasher to clean properly.

If you’re scrubbing it with a sponge or a brush that you’ve used before, then you are simply escalating the bacteria problem. On top of mutilating the germs into oblivion, the LARQ Water Bottle is self-cleaning, meaning you can now minimize your plastic waste safely!

Some of you are reading this and celebrating the smaller amount of dishes to clean over the smaller amount of plastic waste, and that’s OK! Your feelings are valid too.

The most you will need to do is take some light dish soap to the bottle’s rim every now and then and PRESTO! Your bottle is as clean as the day you bought it.

LARQ Water Bottle Reviews – Customer Testimonies

LARQ Bottle PureVis has over 5,000 reviews! And even after those 5,000 reviews, it has maintained 4.6 stars! I don’t know about you, but I love when websites give you the option to just see the lowest ratings because it shows me that the company has nothing to hide. So, that’s what I did! I went to the reviews on the LARQ website and clicked on Lowest rating.

The first thing I want to note is that LARQ has responded to every bad review on its site. Every company gets bad reviews. It’s inevitable! You can’t please everyone, but it’s nice to know that if you are displeased by your order, LARQ will not ignore you and will work with you to create a pleasant experience.

That being said, a majority of the bad reviews I saw dealt with delivery timing. Keep in mind that if you order your LARQ Bottle PureVis or any LARQ product around the holidays, that it may take longer to get to your doorstep.

In general, post offices have been short on employees since the pandemic and so we must consider that when judging a slow delivery.

However, the amount of bad reviews did not hold a candle to the amount of good reviews! Many satisfied customers flocked to the LARQ website to gush about the bottle’s gorgeous design, the yummy water it produces, and even how well it fits in their car’s cup holder. I felt that last one.

Another thing I want to note is that LARQ Bottle PureVis has a chargeable battery, but customers pointed out that the battery seemingly lasted forever! No bad reviews were made about the battery’s lifespan.

What Other Products Does LARQ Offer?

You will definitely want to check out LARQ’s website to see the full scope of the products they offer, but I want to talk a little bit about some of my favorites here:

LARQ Pitcher PureVis Review

First, we have the LARQ Pitcher PureVis which comes in Monaco Blue or Pure White. This product is perfect for homes with sink water that cannot be trusted or tastes bad. While most filtered pitchers on the market only filter out the big stuff, the LARQ Pitcher PureVis uses a two step process to make sure even the smallest amount of harmful matter is eradicated.

In fact, the regular filtered pitchers filter out the chlorine along with the bad stuff and then let your water sit. The chlorine isn’t good for you to consume, but it is keeping the bad stuff from reappearing. The LARQ Pitcher PureVis kills the bad stuff and filters out the chlorine but it doesn’t let your water sit and collect more contaminants.

Instead, it uses the PureVis filter to then continue killing off bacteria and other harmful agents that have taken advantage of the pre-filtered water.

LARQ Bottle Filtered Review

Next, LARQ Bottle Filtered comes in Obsidian Black and Pure White and is for those looking for a filtered bottle on a budget. It does not use the PureVis technology which is the best way to kill contaminants and keep them away, but it does filter the water using a Nano Zero filter as it enters the bottle.

This bottle may be a better fit for those planning to finish it within a few hours of filling it up. If you are someone that tends to let your water sit for a while, the LARQ Bottle PureVis is the way to go.

LARQ Travel Sleeve Review

Lastly, the LARQ travel sleeve is an adorable gray bottle holder. It has a loop at the top so that you can hold your bottle with ease! You can also use the loop to clip your bottle onto a backpack or belt loop if needed.

Where Can I Purchase a LARQ Water Bottle?

You can purchase LARQ products from Amazon or the Williams Sonoma website, but, as per usual, it is best to order products off of their original website. I have linked the LARQ website address here: LARQ Bottle PureVis. Remember, LARQ does have a 12 month warranty in place on many of its products as well as holiday deals!

Right now, you can get $10 off orders over $60, $20 off orders over $120, or $50 off orders over $200! If you are interested in more than one LARQ product, make sure to check out their gift sets so that you can save!

We’ve officially entered a time where the technology feels futuristic! There might not be a fix for everything yet, but the world is moving in a direction that prioritizes health and wellness. So, take advantage of the technology that can make your lifestyle free from contaminants and toxins! God knows we should have brought Scott Westerfeld’s filtered water bottle to life earlier!
