Water Vortex Bottle

Introduction: Water Vortex Bottle

A refillable water bottle that revitalises and enhances your drink by creating a vortex. This simple design facilitates an energy transformation, which leaves your water tasting notably lighter, softer, and more refreshing. The water spins from the top bottle through the hourglass neck into the lower bottle. Give it a brief circular shake, and this energy will transfer into an extended vortex formation as the water descends, which can last about 10 seconds (depending on the size and shape of your bottle). After you have turned and vortexed your bottle a few times, simply unscrew the neck to drink your exceptional water.

Step 1: Find Your Bottles!

Collect two empty drink bottles of the same size (and same shape for aesthetic reasons), with screw-on lids.

Step 2: Gather Your Tools

You will need some type of glue and a drill. We used a hot glue gun, but you can use anything that can join plastics or metals together (depending on your lid type).

Step 3: Join the Lids

Cover the outside top of both lids with glue and join them together, back-to-back. Try not to have any channel in the glue between the two surfaces that water could seep through. Also try to minimise the glue in the centre of the lids where you will be drilling the hole and it could have contact with your water (in case the glue is a bit toxic).

Step 4: Seal the Joins

Use extra glue or filler to seal around the join on the outside of the lids.

Step 5: Drill the Hole

Drill a small starter hole into the center of the lid with an appropriate drill tool for your lid material. Once you have pierced the material, you can change to a larger drill bit to increase the size to no less than 1/4 inch diameter.

Step 6: Sand the Hole

Use sandpaper to smooth the edge of the hole to remove any loose particles.

Step 7: Using Your Bottle

Fill one bottle with your chosen liquid (note: will not remove toxins or bacteria from water taken from streams etc.) and firmly screw one end of the lid/funnel neck to this bottle. Turn your other bottle upside down and screw it onto the top end of the neck. Make sure both bottles are tightly secured. Flip the bottle so that the end with the liquid is on the top and shake it in a tight circular motion for a few seconds. Bubbles will rise first, then the vortex should form shortly after. Repeat the vortex process several times (we found that about 7 times works well).

If bubbles form but the vortex does not follow, try increasing the size of the hole you drilled through the lids.

Enjoy your water!!!

    Tip 6 months ago on Step 7

    I commend you for your efforts on being aware of the fact that any static water is actually pointless to drink and will never hydrate you and is more likely to cause our kidneys stress while it tries to deal with the dead water we just consumed? However I must point out to yourself in case you missed a trick and anyone else reading this great instructable that it is imperative to use glass bottles or at the very least fully BPA and or solvent free plastic bottles, but most definitely glass is always preferable.
