The DYLN Bottle was designed and developed to enhance water by increasing the pH and reducing the ORP to create alkaline antioxidant water. Since the Bottle does not filter water, we recommend using filtered or purified water with your DYLN Bottle.
The VitaBeads are formulated to naturally enhance and revitalize your water. They are a proprietary blend of all-natural minerals that increases the pH and decreases the ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) to create alkaline and antioxidant water for more effective hydration. The proprietary blend is composed of magnesium, tourmaline, zinc, and silica, which are heated to temperatures over 700 degrees Celsius to create the form and shape of the VitaBeads. They are then housed in the same 316 surgical-grade stainless steel as the interior of the Insulated DYLN Bottle.
Each VitaBead Diffuser is designed to alkalize 300 liters of water, which for most people is around 3-4 months. The best way to keep track is by registering your bottle here. That way you will be sent an automatic reminder email when it is nearing time to replace your Diffuser.
The DYLN Bottle will start alkalizing the water immediately, and it typically takes approximately 20 minutes for the water to reach an optimal level of over 8.5 pH. The VitaBeads are formulated for the pH to level at around 9.5 pH, depending upon the source water.
Each DYLN Bottle purchase includes one VitaBead Diffuser and one Diffuser Removal Tool.

Activate Your Diffuser
You should find your Diffuser attached to the Diffuser Removal Tool inside a cloth pouch inside the bottle.
- Remove the Diffuser from the tool, then rinse it under warm water for about 20 seconds.
- Soak the Diffuser in a glass of warm water for about 20 minutes.
- Remove the Diffuser from the glass, briefly rinse it again and then shake off any excess water.
- Let the Diffuser sit out overnight (or at least 8 hours) so the VitaBeads can air-dry completely.
While the Diffuser is soaking and air-drying, wash out your bottle and cap with water and soap. Be sure to rinse out all of the soap.
Attach the Diffuser to your Bottle
Be sure to let the VitaBeads air-dry completely before attaching the Diffuser to the bottle.
- Attach the middle piece of your tool so the tool can reach the bottom of the bottle.
- Attach the Diffuser to the tool by fitting the L-shaped grooves on the tool over the two bumps on the top side of the Diffuser, then twist slightly to lock together. Be sure the Diffuser is the right way up. The top side has two bumps near the edge, and the bottom side has four tabs near the edge.
- Insert the Diffuser into the bottle and line it up with the Diffuser holder at the bottom of the bottle. Push down on the tool firmly to click the Diffuser into the Diffuser holder.
- Lightly twist the tool counterclockwise so it unlocks from the Diffuser, then remove the tool by pulling straight up.
Register Your Bottle
Head to www.dyln.co/register so you can register your new DYLN and keep track of the Diffuser usage. It's the easiest way to know when to change your Diffuser so you're never without alkaline antioxidant water!
Registering your DYLN Bottle is the best way to keep track of your refills so you'll know when to replace your VitaBead Diffuser. Our system will automatically send you an email reminder 2 weeks before it's time to change your Diffuser.
When registering a new DYLN Bottle, you'll be asked to enter the following:
Bottle Code: The bottle code is a 4 digit code that can be found laser engraved on the bottom of your bottle. It is directly above the indicated Bottle volume size.
Bottle Color: Easy enough, you'll select the color of your DYLN Bottle.
Bottle Nickname: The bottle nickname can be anything you want! Some of the favorites that we've seen include Alky, Flounder, and Chillin DYLN.
Usage: You'll enter some estimated usage details for how often you plan on using your bottle such as how many days per week and how many refills per day you normally consume. Don't worry, that info can be edited or updated at any time.
How Do I Register My DYLN Bottle?
Simply navigate to www.dyln.co/register (or click here) and log in, or to set up a new account. Then follow the instructions from there. If you purchased the bottle yourself we highly recommend logging in with the email you used when you placed the order.
Use and Care
Before first use we recommend removing the VitaBead Diffuser and rinsing it for 20 seconds. Then soak it in warm water for 20 minutes, followed by letting it air dry completely overnight. Wash the bottle separately with warm water and plant-based soap if desired. Once dry, insert the Diffuser back into the bottle and you're ready to go!
Please Note: Because of the living Nature of the VitaBeads, there will be pressure buildup within the DYLN Bottle. You may receive an occasional refreshing mist of water while opening. During the first two weeks of use, be sure to loosen the cap every few hours to release the pressure. Repeat these instructions each time you replace with a new Diffuser.
We recommend only using purified or filtered water since the VitaBead Diffuser does not filter water. However, any water you consider safe to drink, you may use with the DYLN Bottle. For example, your tap water quality may be a different drinkable standard quality depending on where you live. The DYLN Bottle will enhance any water you add to it, however, it will not filter water.
As for water temperature, we do not recommend using hot or boiling water as it will decrease the lifespan of the VitaBeads. Using warm, room temperature or cold water is fine.
The easiest way to know when to replace your Diffuser is by registering your DYLN Bottle here. Once registered, we will send you an email reminder when it's nearing time to replace your Diffuser.
How to Remove Your VitaBead Diffuser
Step 1 Step 2 Assemble the Diffuser Removal Tool by connecting the middle component. Once assembled, insert the Tool inside the bottle and lightly place it on top of the Diffuser with little-to-no pressure. Step 3 Step 4 Turn the Tool clockwise until you feel it drop about 1/2 inch. Once it drops, again turn the Tool slightly clockwise to lock into place.
Slowly turn clockwise and pull up at the same time to remove the Diffuser.
Note: You may need to apply a fair amount of upward pressure to release the Diffuser the first time.
How to Insert Your VitaBead Diffuser
Step 1 Step 2 Attach the Diffuser into your assembled Tool. Insert the Tool into the bottle. Step 3 Step 4 With enough pressure, push the Tool into the base until you feel the Diffuser lock into place (do not twist the tool when inserting the Diffuser). Once secure, slightly turn the Tool counterclockwise and lift.
*Please note: There are two outward 'dots' on the outside of the Diffuser, which the Tool will grab onto. These Dots are at the TOP of your Diffuser and should attach to the Tool. Please ensure you correctly insert the Diffuser into your Tool before reinstalling the Diffuser in your DYLN Bottle.
To clean your DYLN Bottle, first remove the Diffuser from your bottle. The inside of the bottle and the cap can be cleaned warm soapy water—preferably plant-based soap. Let the bottle and cap air dry for the best results before using again.
Handwash the Diffuser with warm water without any soap. For best results, air dry your Diffuser before inserting back into your bottle. Please ensure to change your Diffuser every 300 liters, or on average, every three months for optimal results.
Do not run in the dishwasher. The Insulated DYLN Bottle, including the Diffuser and the Cap, is not dishwasher safe. Dishwashers can reach high enough temperatures that it may impact the scratch-resistant paint of the exterior and compromise the insulation benefit.
Use warm water and a plant-based soap. Shake the DYLN Bottle to thoroughly clean the interior, then rinse with warm water once or twice. We recommend removing the Diffuser when washing your DYLN Bottle, and you can hand wash the Diffuser with warm water separately. Please see how to clean your Diffuser here.
*Note that if you would like to run the Original DYLN Bottle through the dishwasher, you must remove the Cap, Diffuser and Sleeve.
Clean the stainless-steel part of the cap with a plant-based soap and soft sponge. Ensure the bamboo stays dry and never submerge the bamboo or cap in water. After prolonged use, you can add almond or coconut oil to the bamboo.
The sleeve does not need to be removed unless you wish to place your Bottle in the dishwasher. Clean with water or plant-based soap and a soft sponge, then rinse and let air-dry.
We do not recommend putting your DYLN Bottle in the freezer. Water expands at freezing temperatures and may affect the structural integrity of the Bottle.
Instead, we recommend putting ice cubes into your DYLN Bottle to keep the water cold.
Using conventional dish soap may impact shorten lifespan of the VitaBeads. Instead, we recommend hand washing using just warm water and let the Diffuser completely air-dry.
Electronic pH Meter
Testing the pH of your water is a simple task that requires the use of a pH measuring device or solution. Using a calibrated pH test meter will provide the best results.
pH Test Drops
Quality pH test drops are an easy and quick way to test the pH of water. We recommend using good quality, as pH test drops can only be an indicator and will not be able to provide accurate results. Please ensure you are using appropriate pH test drops-to-water ratios and allowing enough time to pass for the water to alkalize. Results can vary based on the quality of the pH test drops.
ph Paper Test Strips (not recommended)
pH strips are intended and designed for measuring urine and saliva, not water or alkaline water. This is because pH test strips work by interacting with the TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) in a solution. The DYLN Bottle adds very little to no TDS, so the pH measurement will always be the same before and after the water was in the DYLN Bottle when testing with strips.
Pool Testing Kit (not recommended)
A pool pH testing kit is intended for testing the pH level of pool water, which typically varies between 7.0—7.6 and contains chemicals such as chlorine, sodium bisulphate and sodium carbonate. Testing alkaline drinking water with a pool pH testing kit will not give accurate or reliable results, limited to an approximate pH range of 6.0—8.0.
