Three of our group used the Water-to-Go bottles for Glastonbury Festival 2014, and I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed we were with them!
Although we had an amazing time, you will appreciate that hygiene is not the best at a festival – There are drinking water taps provided around the site, but they seem to be few and far between, the queues are huge and by day 3, they are boggy mess. Having our Water-to-Go bottles meant we could fill from any of the water sources around the festival site – Including the water taps next to the toilets. I certainly would not fill a normal bottle from these taps due to the high level of bacteria which will be transferred from them.
Also, due to the precautions they take against contamination in the water source, it does tend to have a swimming pool taste which disappeared completely when drinking through the filter. The other option was to purchase bottled water but with prices at the festival ranging from £1.50 to £3.00 for 500ml it would have cost us a lot of money over the 5 days, not to mention the environmental effects of plastic bottles.
I would definitely recommend Water-to-Go bottles to anyone considering purchasing one – You definitely won’t regret it.
