Are yours easy to turn and open? Almost every time I turn them it starts to open the whole lid on both of mine.Sorry to hear that you don't like those water bottles. I have one with the new style valve and one with the old style valve. Both are working just fine, although the new style valve is so much easier to clean. I also doesn't appear to attract as much gunk and dirt as the old style valve does.
The one new style that I have is still easy to turn and doesn't dribble when I use it. I got mine not too long after you posted getting yours because I didn't like the way you have to clean the old style valves. The old style seems to get dirtier much faster and harder to clean.Are yours easy to turn and open? Almost every time I turn them it starts to open the whole lid on both of mine.
Yea, that whole easier to clean is what sold me but gawd....what a pain in the ass getting those rings on and off. It's much easier to me to pull the other ones apart and throw them in the dishwasher.
