Drinking from the HydraCoach using the Mouthpiece is a two-step process. With your lips around the mouthpiece, locate your teeth on the indents at the tip and bite down to open the slit. To ensure accuracy take a good suck in, just like you would with a straw, to draw the fluid from the bottle up in to your mouth. When finished, simply remove your mouth from the Mouthpiece and the slit will automatically seal itself to protect against accidental spillage.
The PHG value may be adjusted throughout the day to accommodate your personal hydration needs. The PHG value may be adjusted up to address greater fluid needs as a result of exercise, the environment, illness or health conditions, pregnancy or other variables. The PHG value may also be adjusted down to account for fluids consumed from alternate sources other than the HydraCoach. Before embarking on a custom hydration program, please consult your doctor on all issues related to your personal hydration requirements.
The Bottle should be refilled when the water line reaches the ----REFILL---- mark on the lower back portion of the bottle. This ensures that no air is sucked through the system resulting in erroneous readings. The accuracy of the HydraCoach relies on maintaining a “closed system” in which water is captured within the Impeller Assembly and Tubing at all times.
Do not tip the bottle too far forward while you drink. Think of it more like drinking from a straw in a cup. Keep the bottle oriented in a vertical position for it to work most effectively. The bottle may be slightly tipped forward while drinking for ease of use. Do not tip it upside down to drink as you would with open lid or squirt style bottles.
It is perfectly all right to put ice in the bottle to keep your drink cold.
When adding water to the bottle, DO NOT fill to the very top. When the Upper Cap is screwed down, water will be displaced and spill out.
When transporting a filled HydraCoach, especially within a bag or other confined space, make sure that the Mouthpiece does not become compressed or deformed in any way, or water will be released from the system
