Most of stainless water bottle manufacturers do the three things to ensure product quality, that is to set a series of strict test standards and test procedures, to purchase accurate testing equipment and to train QA engineers professionally.
It’s also a key part to make sure that the bottles don’t contain any harmful substances like BPA.
