I was wondering if you there are any water bladders that do not require suction? My mom had a brain tumor and she's not able to use water bladders that require suction.
Hi @csmyth - Thanks for reaching out!
We do not currently have any water reservoirs designed specifically for drinking without suction. One solution that might work for your mom is removing the bite valve on water reservoirs that have a separate on/off lever. An example of a water reservoir that has these features is the CamelBak Crux 3L Reservoir.
With the bite-valve removed and the lever switch to on, water should flow freely through the tube when pressure is added by squeezing or through gravity with the reservoir's placement.
Hopefully this helps!
Can confirm it flows quite readily without the bite valve so this is a good suggestion, though unfortunately my own experience finding this out wasn't on purpose...
