Reusable water bottle cleaning

Hey guys, we’re doing a capstone design project as a group about water contamination from bacteria that grows in reusable water bottles. Our intent is to make a more effortless solution to keep your water clean from harmful bacteria and keep you healthy. It would be greatly appreciated if you could help our group out by answering some questions on a google survey about the issue so we can eventually help you guys out later. Do you guys feel that keeping your water bottle clean from bacteria is a valid issue?
