I have had this bottle for 3 years and it's still working just fine. I like that in between filters you just "wash" it with really hot water and it's good to go. I've stopped buying bottled water after I bought this. It'll cut down on how many plastic bottles are going to the landfill!
I stopped buying Caprisuns for awhile when the mold issues came up. I myself loved the drink but refused to give them to my daughter after that. Now that they have the clear bottoms and I can see what is inside I have started buying them again. Wish the 100% juice containers had the clear bottom.
