The MyBottle is the only personal water bottle purification system on the entire water filter market that is registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To use this water bottle purifier all you have to do is fill the bottle with the water you want purified, insert the specially-designed Katadyn purification system, and drink from virtually any fresh water source.
Using the advanced Katadyn Virustat filter (8011555) plus a Katadyn cyst filter (8011553), this personal water bottle filter removes all viruses, bacteria, cysts, and other impurities from nearly all freshwater sources. The integral carbon cartridge also reduces chemicals and makes the filtered water taste better.

It also provides protection against most waterborne pathogens that could still be present in the drinking water of many foreign nations. The MyBottle is great for use in emergencies and natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc., or when the water service from your local water treatment plant is interrupted.
With the use of Katadyn MyBottle personal water filters, you will no longer have to carry or locate safe drinking water when hiking, traveling, fishing, boating, camping, or during emergencies. Katadyn MyBottles are the only water bottle purifiers on the market that includes the technology of a microbial purification filter cartridge in a standard water bottle.
Katadyn MyBottle Water Purifier (Green Deer Color) Specifications:
According to U.S. EPA microbiological water purifier testing, the included iodide resin Virustat microbial purification cartridge removed the following contaminants:
- 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria such as Klebsiella terrigena
- 99.99% of waterborne viruses including Poliovirus Type 1 and Type 1 Rotavirus Strain SA-11
- 99.9% of waterborne protozoa such as Giardia
- Other impurities and contaminants, as well as bad tastes and odors
The Virustat filter cartridge uses a patented ion-release technology that reduces residual iodine along with a specialized layer of coconut-carbon that further reduces any further residue. The Virustat cartridge is preceded by a replaceable 1-micron Katadyn cyst filter that removes 99.9% of pathogenic cysts (Giardia, etc). Additionally, a prefilter is installed below the cyst filter in order to remove sediment, dirt, and other potentially harmful organic contaminants.
Katadyn MyBottle personal water bottle purifiers provide a convenient alternative to larger pump-style water purifiers. Because they are designed for personal small-scale water filtration, MyBottle systems are not for use in situations where large volumes of water must be treated.
Each Katadyn MyBottle also includes a drinking straw to use as your everyday water bottle if the source water is already safe to drink.
Full detailed instructions for the initial set-up and use of this Katadyn MyBottle personal water purifier are included. This Katadyn MyBottle is also known by part number 8017757.
