Products

Q:

How does your product benefit the environment?

A:

Reduce products are designed to be reusable to reduce the amount of plastic water bottles that end up in the landfill each year. We purposely choose long lasting materials so you can use them over and over again.

Q:

Are your products safe?

A:

Reduce products are not only safe, but they are BPA free, Phthalate free, and lead free.

Q:

Where can I find replacement lids?

A:

We sell replacement lids and a few others on our website. For all other lids, contact us via email info@basebrands.com or by phone, (404)-600-2787.

Q:

Can I put Reduce products in the dishwasher?

A:

Yes, all plastic items can be placed in the dishwasher, however, we recommend that any insulated steel products be hand washed. This helps them last longer.

Q:

My filter stopped working. Is something wrong?

A:

Our filters have more ion exchanging resin than most. Sometimes this resin can stick to itself and keep water from flowing. First tap the filter against a hard surface to loosen the particles. If this doesn't help please send us an email at info@basebrands.com. We would be happy to send you a replacement.

Q:

How do you dispose of the water filter?

A:

Open the cartridge and dispose of the contents. The filter housing can be recycled. It is number 5 plastic.

Q:

My COLD-1 lid will raise on one side when put it on the tumbler.

A:

If the tolerance between the lid and gasket is tight the gasket might push the lid up on one side. To correct this just twist the lid as you press it down. This will keep the gasket from moving the lid up.

Q:

Can I freeze Reduce water bottles?

A:

No, when the frozen water expands in the bottles, it can crack the plastic.

Q:

Can I boil Reduce bottles?

A:

No, it warps the products. If you are having a hard time sterilizing the products, use a bottle brush cleaner with a skinny handle.

How do you test for Hot?

We fill our products with 200° F water and test how long it takes to get to 120° F

Q:

Is there a standard for what is Hot?

A:

No, what is hot to one person might not be hot to another person. Based on our research we have determined that any temperature under 120° F is no longer hot.

Q:

How do you test for Cold?

A:

We fill our product full of ice and water and test how long it takes to get to 50° F

Q:

Is there a standard for what is Cold?

A:

No, what is cold to one person might not be cold to another person. Based on our research we have determined that any temperature over 50° F is no longer cold.

Q:

I put ice in my container and it started melting when I added water. I thought vacuum containers stopped ice from melting fast. What’s going on?

When water is added to ice the ice will melt until the water reaches 32° F. Once the water reaches 32° F it stops melting fast and will slow down.
