Can I customize my bottles?
This is a big YES!!! If your order is over 50 bottles please click this link to get a quote and we will do the rest.
How does the valve cap work?
Our silicone valve technology allows the liquid to flow through the center and vent around the sides incorporating a diaphragm that absorbs impact to prevent leakage when dropped or shaken. One of the distinct benefits of our system is that our valve has a variable output unlike our competitors whose flow is either “on or off”. Our technology will allow for a more controlled flow that adjusts to the intensity of the squeeze and shuts off automatically when not squeezed.
How do I open the flip up travel cup lid?
Our one piece molded cap provides for easy cleaning and minimizes residue build up; making our product more hygienic, healthy & practical. No additional parts provide a more cost effective product and no place for dirt to get trapped. Opening and closing the spout on the lid is as simple as ‘snapping’ it up from the closed position to allow the spout to pour, then simply ‘snap’ it back into place by pushing it down!
What’s the locking feature and how does it work?
Our “new” patented “positive shut off” <or> “positive locking” feature means our caps won’t spill or leak even during the most vigorous activities. Even in the “open” + position our caps do not to leak or spill and the cap becomes completely leak & spill proof in the “closed“ position eliminating the need to constantly adjust the cap.
The “positive shut off” +/- locking feature is primarily used when storing your bottle. This feature will prevent leaks& spills when the bottle is not in use or tossed in a bag.
Is it Dishwasher safe?
Yes, all of our products are. For optimal results we recommend you use the top rack of your dishwasher to ensure proper cleaning. Please remember to remove the cap from the bottle for thorough cleaning. You may also wash by hand using normal soap and rinsing well.
What kind of drinks can I put inside my bottle?
You can use most type of drinks, namely sports drinks, warm liquids (provided that they are not extra-hot or at boiling temperature to avoid accidental burns), carbonated beverages (beware of the “fizz” if the lock feature has been used).
What I should not do with the bottle?
Freeze or use it in the microwave.
What is our commitment to the environment, sustainability, safety?
Our Plastic bottles are made from biodegradable materials which are the most environmentally responsible bottles on the market. They are BPA, DEHA & DEHP Free, FDA Food Contact Safe, Prop 65 Compliant and more!
Hydroshot bottles are made from low-density Polyethylene (LDPE) recyclable plastic. AMD Closures is aware of its responsibility in contributing for the wellbeing of our planet and the future of our children. We believe in making a difference one bottle at a time. Pre-filled water bottles contribute to waste & pollution; drink responsibly with re-fillable bottles.

How well does plastic hold temperatures compared to other materials?
It can be very confusing with all the different products available on the market and the various claims as to which one is the best insulator. A general misconception is how well plastic holds temperature and its imitations. Most flexible sports bottles are made out of Polyethylene (PE) and can sustain temperatures up to boiling and freezing points. However, it is not recommended to freeze plastic bottles because the plastic becomes rigid and can crack more easily. Thermal conductivity is the way any material maintains and holds temperatures and is measured by “high” or “low”. PE plastics have a “low” thermal conductivity which means they do not lose heat or cold quickly. Interesting enough, aluminum thermal conductivity is “high” and will loose and gain heat quickly which means that it attracts heat fast yet at the same time loses heat faster than plastic.
Stainless steel also transmits heat and cold temperatures slowly but not as good as plastic. Although thermos bottles are the best in retaining temperatures it’s mainly because of the double wall feature which acts like a vacuum to capture the heat or cold and not necessarily the material that is used. Regarding those little sleeves we’ve all seen that wrap around a bottle or can; well they do help a little and perform very similar to a sock keeping your foot warm.
So in a nut shell, thermos bottles perform the best; followed by plastic, stainless steel and aluminum. One more good reason to fill your plastic sport bottles with cold drinks and ice or warm liquids that are not too hot to avoid accidentally burning your mouth.
