Frequently Asked Questions
What is inside the GOpure Pod?
The power within every Pod comes from an unlimited and renewable resource that has been trusted by Mother Nature for over 20 million years. She calls it diatomaceous earth (DE). We call it revolutionary technology. Every Pod features an “advanced ceramic” core made from DE and trace silver that performs like a magnet to continuously attract, bind and adsorb every heavy metal, inorganic, bacteria, impure chemicals and more.
How do I use my GOpure Pod?
A simple little cleansing ritual is all that’s required for the first use of every Pod.
- Step 1: Rinse the Pod under cold water for 10 seconds.
- Step 2: Clean your bottle or water container thoroughly before filling with water and using your Pod for the first time.
- Step 3: Repeat every two weeks for optimal performance. Yep, preparation and maintenance of your Pod and your bottle is that simple.
How long does it take to purify my water?
Within the first two minutes of dropping your Pod into your bottle or container, your water becomes fresh tasting and ready to drink. The Pod will continuously purify your water, including every time you refill it. Now you might be wondering – do I still need to wait up to two minutes on refills? Yeppers.
PS: an occasional swirl of the Pod in the water will speed up the purification process.
How long will my GOpure Pod last?
Every Pod. Every six months. That’s our playbook. Why does it last so darn long? Unlike your old school carbon filter that has to be replaced every 40 gallons, our advanced ceramic technology lasts up to six months, purifying up to 264 gallons of water (6x more than carbon filters). For those who like math, this will save the planet from 2,000 single-use plastic water bottles while saving you money, too.
Where is it safe to use my GOpure Pod?
If there’s a tap, there’s purified water. Every drop of potable water from every tap is now safe to drink everywhere you go with your GOpure Pod. Every town, every city, every country. While the Pod has been proven to remove E.coli and other dangerous bacteria, it is not recommended as the sole source for purification of backcountry water (lakes, streams, etc) and should be used with potable water only.
How do I know when it’s time to get a new GOpure Pod?
Easy! We can send you a new Pod every six months. Just sign up for our subscription program and we’ll take care of the rest. Commitment issues? No worries. We’ll send you an email reminder instead, 30 days before your replacement date so you can reorder at your leisure. Our packaging is earth-friendly, but you can go even greener with our package-free Pod delivery service. Speaking of green, every Pod is fully recyclable after use, or you can send it back to us and we will repurpose it.
What else can my Pod do?
GOpure is equally effective in cold or hot water and optimizes pH to 7.4 creating healthier joints, bones, heart and skin. The Pod keeps your bottle, pitcher, hydration pack and more, clean from slime and stinkiness too!
