Ok, Whats the secret to freezing water in the Platypus Bladder without freezing up the water flow in the quick-disconnect valve?

Responded on

maybe place it in the freezer with the disconnect valve up. Then when you remove it, run the disconnect valve part under some warm/hot tap water to thaw out anything that might have frozen inside? Just a thought though. Haven't tried it.

How do I freeze my Platypus bottle or reservoir? Is it ok to freeze my Platy? bottle?
Lay it half-full on its side in freezer with all air purged. Do not over-fill. Water expands as it freezes and this can burst your reservoir or bottle.
