TSA Regulations Concerning Bottled Water
The TSA regulations concerning bottled water are as follows:
- You are allowed to bring one quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag of liquids, gels, and aerosols in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item. This includes bottled water, but you are only allowed to bring a container that is 3.4 ounces or less.
- You are allowed to bring liquids, gels, and aerosols in your checked baggage in containers of any size. However, there are some restrictions on certain items, such as flammable liquids and compressed gases.
If you need to bring a full water bottle with you through security, you can check it with your baggage. You can also purchase a water bottle after you pass through security.
Here are some additional tips for carrying bottled water through the TSA checkpoint:
- Empty your water bottle before going through security and refill it after you pass through the checkpoint.
- If you need to bring a full water bottle with you through security, make sure it is 3.4 ounces or less and that it is in a clear, plastic, zip-top bag.
- Be prepared to remove your water bottle from your carry-on bag and place it in the bin for screening.
- If you have any medically necessary liquids, be sure to declare them to a TSA officer at the checkpoint.
The TSA is committed to ensuring the safety of travelers, but they also understand that passengers need to stay hydrated. By following these regulations, you can help to keep yourself and your fellow passengers safe while also staying hydrated.
