I had some 10 year old camelbacks and the tubes had gotten pretty disgusting. I tried everything to clean them but I couldn’t find a way to get a small brush all the way through the tube. I found this product and it worked perfectly. The amount of dirt and mold(?) that came out was pretty gross, but after giving everything a thorough scrub, I was confident that my drinking water was clean again.

I thought this plastic rack thing would hold the reservoir open enough that it would dry more quickly. And maybe it does’ it now takes just seven days, whereas before it took a week. Water still collects in the bottom (there is always a bottom, no matter how you hang it) and the corners. Every day or two I shake it out, and eventually it’s gone. Of course you might say this is a flaw in the design of the reservoir, which I guess it is, but the rack doesn’t seem to improve it much over coiling up the tube and putting it inside.
Speaking of the tube, mine has a valve at one end of the tube that doesn’t want to come out–I could probably force it, but haven’t tried for fear of damaging it. But the tube brush is a few inches shorter than the length of the tube, and since I can only insert the brush at one end, that means a few inches of tube don’t get cleaned out. If your tube doesn’t have a valve, or is shorter than mine, this probably won’t matter–just insert the brush at both ends. I will say this tube brush is longer than the old one I had, so it’s better.
