Guzzle H2O is a startup founded in September 2017 as a collaboration between Bech Marine, a product design company specializing in forward-thinking products for unmanned air systems, marine, consumer, and outdoor products and Sean Couvreux, a world champion professional sailor. Since then, Guzzle H2O has developed clean water systems for a variety of outdoor lifestyles with the goal of reducing the use of single-use plastic water bottles.
The company is based in Hood River, Oregon.
Guzzle H2O wanted to develop a portable system to make available water more convenient for hydration than bottled water in one-use plastic containers. They have created the Guzzle Spigot which combines a portable carbon filter and AquiSense’s PearlAqua Micro™. The system connects to the local water supply and uses 12v power onboard the yacht or is fitted with an integrated rechargeable battery. A UV-C LED system from AquiSense was chosen because they needed a lightweight, compact, extremely durable UV disinfection system with low power consumption.
“We think the PearlAqua Micro is such a powerful tool. It will help us create a new category of product that makes people realize they don’t need to rely on plastic water bottles.”
