Raise your hand if the pandemic’s made you a little more health-conscious than before. I’m not talking about wearing a mask in public and washing your hands 10 times a day… I’m talking about just re-evaluating how much trash we put into our system in the name of convenience, whether it’s junk food, soda, or just an unhealthy lifestyle. The LARQ Pitcher was designed to perfectly suit the latter response to the pandemic. This 1.9-liter pitcher comes with a unique multi-stage purification system that goes above and beyond what most water filters do. Not only does it remove potentially harmful compounds and contaminants from the water you drink, it sanitizes it by using UV-C light to neutralize any bio-contaminants that may be present in your tap water.
Designed by the CES and Red Dot Award-winning LARQ team, the LARQ Pitcher takes multiple steps to ensure your drinking water is as safe as can be. The pitcher’s sleek design houses a filtration system on the top, and a transparent water-container at the base to show you how pristine your water is. Designed for easy, one-handed filling, simply pour tap water through the counterbalanced top to easily fill the reservoir. It then passes into the LARQ Pitcher’s filter housing, and through its plant-based carbon-filter that’s capable of catching Lead, Chlorine, Radon, metals, asbestos, VOCs, and hard-water minerals. The plant-based filter lasts up to 50% longer than most of its competition (purifying as much as 60 gallons), and sits in a sustainable housing made from a woven material, replacing plastic by as much as 75% in the overall filter’s design.
While its physical filter improves taste and removes pollutants as one aspect of the filtration purification process, the LARQ Pitcher even comes with its proprietary technology, PureVis™, a built-in UV-C LED light wand that further purifies the water with ultraviolet light. The PureVis™ Wand purifies the water as it enters the pitcher’s main vessel, neutralizing bacteria, viruses, and molds to keep your water cleaner for longer. While most water filters end up becoming breeding grounds for microorganisms after weeks of use, the PureVis™ UV-C technology prevents that from happening, making sure that the water you drink is doubly purified to the highest standard possible in any purifier-pitcher.
The LARQ Pitcher comes in a singular size, with two color combinations – a classic Pure White, and an unusually eye-catching Monaco Blue. The transparent base of the pitcher is made from a pristine, clear BPA/BPS-free plastic that’s glass-like and literally shows you the results of the LARQ Pitcher’s multi-stage purification system… and when you ever need to replace a filter, the pitcher’s light track handily notifies you with an LED light. Moreover, if you want to actively track your LARQ Pitcher’s progress, LARQ is developing a smartphone app that will show you your filter health stats in real-time, along with insights and information about what’s really inside your tap water. The app debuts in Spring 2021, while the pitcher begins shipping as early as December 2020.

LARQ Pitcher – Pure Water Beyond Filtration
Traditional pitchers collect unwanted pollutants in filters where they can quickly multiply and reverse contaminate your water. The LARQ Pitcher goes beyond filtration with a unique 2-step filtration and purification process for pure-tasting water sip after sip.
Why Reinvent the Pitcher
By removing chlorine, the filters become the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and other pollutants in just 2 weeks—making the filter itself a source of contamination. Read about it in the white paper.
Step 1: Better Filteration
Their carbon-derived, plant-based filter gets rid of unwanted contaminants like lead, mercury, chlorine, VOCs, and more, leaving you with pure, crisp-tasting water. No compromises here.
Step 2: PureVis™ Purification Technology
What traditional water pitchers are missing is a vital second step—PureVis™ UV-C purification, which eradicates bio-contaminants at the molecular level. Keeping your water as pure as nature intended.
Smart & Sustainable
Tech Backed by Science
LARQ’s proprietary and patented PureVis™ UV-C LED technology is the most advanced in the world.
The team opted out of the hard outer plastic casing you’ll find with traditional filters and created a more sustainable woven material to help provide structure to the filter media. The result? A 75% reduction in plastic use during filter replacements over the course of a year. By flattening the filter geometry we were able to maximize surface area for the perfect balance between efficacy, filter speed, and lifetime.
Filteration for All
Two types of filters to choose from based on your water quality needs. LARQ Filters will be tested to NSF standards (42 and 53) to achieve >90% reduction across a range of contaminants.
Lab-tested & Proven
