The ZeroGoo BladderDryer was designed to dry wet bladders before storage, thus eliminating grime build up and bacteria. Here’s how it works:
Like the cap on a bladder, the ZeroGoo Bladder Dryer easily screws onto the bladder. Then powered on, the blower inflates the empty bladder with cool air that the dryer pumps out. After the bladder has been dried, it is ready for safe storage.
The concept of this product is great, but testing revealed that it could be improved upon.
Because bladders are composed of hard-to-dry plastic materials, The ZeroGoo Dryer had a modest effect on the drying process after 30 minutes. A dry bladder is difficult to achieve without heat because cool air doesn’t efficiently evaporate water.
Now, we can’t say that the Bladder Dryer should produce the heat of a hair dryer because we don’t know what effects heat can have on materials that bladders are made of. At a moderate level, however, heat could be helpful in expediting the drying process.
The ZeroGoo Bladder Dryer is making the right move in a direction that no other companies have yet to attempt. If you are in the market for a product that dries your hydration bladder, Bladder Dryer by ZeroGoo is your best bet. It might take a bit longer than anticipated, but using ZeroGoo’s innovative product beats the time and organism buildup you’d get without it.
