SOURCE UTA™ - Rapid Hydration Refill Kit
Tube refill adaptor (U.S Patent No. 8,430,134 B2)
A revolutionary solution for refilling your hydration system on the move. The reservoir is filled directly through the tube eliminating the need to remove the hydration pack from the back for refills.
Thanks to SQC, SOURCEs Quick Connection technology, the UTA plugs into any Hydration System with SQC push-button convenience.
The UTA kit includes
- SQC UTA adaptor - Fits almost every bottle and tap, connects to the tube with SQC Quick Connect in place of the drinking valve.
- SQC Co-ex tube - Get extra reach with this drinking tube, equipped with SQC connectors on both ends.
- SQC Helix Drinking Valve - SOURCE Valve with SQC Quick Connector.
* What is SQC?- Source Quick Connect (SQC) provides push-button convenience for fast and easy disconnection and connection of drinking tube and valve, and attachment of various accessories like the UTA or in-line filters. When disconnected, the SQC-auto-lock seals both loose ends watertight, which means you can exchange the tube or accessories also when the reservoir is full.

UTA Rapid Refill Kit: Video Manual
If you're refilling using a bottle (ideally squeezable) or a running tap, it's fine. But the first time I tried pouring into it using a flask, the inflow was really slow, and would spill out. After some trial and error, I realized that the water pressure needs to be high enough for proper refilling. It worked when I lifted the flask up higher from the valve. But you need really steady hands to avoid spilling.
Love the UTA™ for so many reasons.
Very innovative and effective. This shortens our transition times and is super convenient in every application. Make sure it is all the way in the rubber adapter before you turn on the water or turn he bottle upside down. Buying one for every bladder we own.
