1) How well does the carbon remove heavy metals and fertilisers/ pesticides that you would come across in the real world?

2) Someone IS going to pee in it.

 

Depends on the specific carbon used but it can be very effective, I have it as one of the stages in a reverse osmosis water system, and even testing the water after just the carbon stage it has very little trace of contaminants.

Unless their pee is very salty this shouldn't be a problem at all, it's pretty much sterile to begin with anyway.

About time - I bought one of the bottles for a trip around Nepal and couldn't believe they missed the obvious trick from the outset of making the bottle fit properly in a cage!
