Beginner’s Guide: How to set up your LARQ Bottle

elaine / May 08

Wondering how LARQ Bottle PureVis™ works exactly? Well, wonder no more. (Hint: It’s actually really easy.) One would even venture to say that it’s as easy as pushing a button.
Before you get started, give the bottle a little soapy sponge bath. Don’t worry, the cap is waterproof (IPX7-rated). Right after its bath, air dry the LARQ cap on a dish rack completely before plugging it in to charge.

#1 Unlock LARQ

Press and hold the button down for 5 seconds to unlock the bottle for the first time. A white color light will flash signifying that it is unlocked and ready for cleaning action! If no light appears, simply plug it in to charge—this will automatically unlock your LARQ Cap so it’s ready for adventure.

#2 Give it a good charge

Power that baby up! Insert the micro-USB end into the cap (on or off the bottle). Then, plug the USB end into a USB wall adapter or USB port of a laptop until the battery is fully charged. You’ll know when it’s fully charged when the green light is steady. 

#3 Fill it up

Fill with clear water up to the indicator line. Then, screw on the cap and press the button to get purifying! Press once for Normal Mode, and twice for Adventure Mode. (Do not interrupt the PureVis™ cycle by removing the cap or pressing the button!)

Normal Mode Breathing sky blue light
Adventure Mode Pulsing blue light
Safety Mode Pulsing orange light flashes when activated outside the bottle


Normal mode

Drinking water from a trusted source? Press once to activate Normal Mode, a 60-second cycle with a breathing sky blue light.

Adventure Mode

Need an extra dose of PureVis™ power? Press twice to activate Adventure Mode, a 3-minute cycle with a pulsing blue light.

Self-cleaning Mode

Your LARQ Bottle loves to stay clean. That’s why every 2 hours, it will intelligently activate Self-Cleaning Mode, a 10-second cycle with breathing sky blue light.

Travel Lock

Hopping around the world on your next adventure? Hold down for 5 seconds to activate the Travel Lock, which disables Self-Cleaning Mode and any accidental activation during travel or in storage.

#4 Wait just 60 seconds for brilliantly clean water!

Give your bottle a little whirl (we like to do our happy dance) while your bottle is purifying to spread the UV-C light’s love in there. Now you’re ready to #DrinkBrilliantly with fresh water from a clean bottle.
Seems simple enough right? Right! It’s super easy to use and is designed to fit into your life seamlessly. Beauty and brains. Something you never knew you’d want in a water bottle.

Before we let you go, there are a few things you should know about your LARQ Bottle. There are many smart features packed into this. Just wait and see.
