ZeroWater 8 Cup Filter Pitcher Review

Do you love the taste of bottled water but feel guilty about polluting earth with all of the plastic bottles? I know I do! I found a filter pitcher that will solve both issues. ZeroWater provides “the only filtered water that meets the FDA definition for purified bottled water”! It literally removes 100% of detectable dissolved solids giving you purified water from your tap! Plus, you are not tossing bottles into the landfills and can even recycle the filters!

TDS Meter test contaminant levels in your water

The ZeroWater 8 Cup Filter Pitcher comes with a TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) meter to test your water before and after using the filter. The TDS meter will tell you what contaminant level your tap water is and how long you can expect the ZeoWater filter to last.

My straight tap water was over 900 TDS! This is beyond the Extreme Level of contaminants and off the charts for the ZeroWater TDS meter. Having a 900 TDS level makes me very concerned about what my family is consuming! However, when I use another tap filtration system that uses ultra-violet technology, the contaminant level is just down to less than 200 which is the typical or normal range. This is what I give my kids to drink and it taste fine. However, it does contain contaminants that could be harmful for my family, including lead. With a 300 level, the ZeroWater filter will give me 25-40 gallons of purified water. Although I could use the ZeroWater with my straight 900 TDS water, it would use up the filter more quickly so I choose to run it through my UV light to get the 300 level first. Most homes are at the 300 TDS level to begin with.

After using the ZeroWater pitcher, I tested the water with the TDS meter and immediately had a 003 level! The next time through, it was 000. As a mom, I feel great giving my kids water with a 000 Contaminant Level! With a 000 level, it meets the FDA definition of purified bottled water and contains no known municipalities. My kids love drinking this water.

See it to believe it, it’s not bottled water it WAS my nasty well water

My son and I are the most picky when it comes to drinking our well water. My son would not drink anything but bottled water and would let us know if we tried to ‘trick’ him into drinking our well water. He can tell the difference. With the ZeroWater, he thinks he is drinking bottled water! After seeing me use tap water in the pitcher, he was skeptical. After trying it, he liked it! My 5 year old had to see it to believe it was our well water and not purified water! Do you know what you are giving your kids to drink?

I thought you might want to see it to believe it too. I had a couple friends test my straight tap water. Straight, my tap water is OVER the extreme level for contaminants, it taste nasty and smells like sulfur. My kids and I never drank it and my husband tolerated it.

What we like best about ZeroWater

What we like best about ZeroWater is that we are consuming clean, healthy water and More of it! We all know the importance of drinking enough water but if you water taste “funny” even adults shy away from drinking enough, let alone kids! ZeroWater provides crisp, clean, and refreshing water from your tap! I love that my family is drinking more water now and that I know there are no contaminants to harm them. I also like the spigout feature on the bottom of the pitcher so I can either pour from the top of the pitcher or push the spigout to pour the water.
