Thank you to ZeroWater for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.
We drink a lot of water at our house! It's the beverage of choice for me and my daughters. I sometimes drink up to a gallon of water a day. Since water is essential for our well-being, I have started to wonder if I am providing the best possible for my family.
ZeroWater is a leading brand in water filters. Their unique filtration systems provide hydration while at home or on-the-go. They hope to assist in creating a planet where everyone has access to safe drinking water.
ZeroWater sent me a 12-cup Ready-Pour ZeroWater pitcher and one water meter to try in our home.
Filter and water meter
WOW! This filter is giant.
I was curious about the size of the filter. Turns out ZeroWater uses a 5-stage system. This is the secret to getting clean drinking water.
Stage 1- Removes suspended
solids such as dust and rust that
make your water appear cloudy
Stage 2- Removes organic
Stage 3- Removes additional
Stage 4- Removes inorganic
compounds, such as metals and
nonmetals, as well as radiological
Stage 5- Removes remaining
Set up was a breeze! I washed the pitcher with hot, soapy water then twisted the filter into the bottom of the reservoir.
There is a tight seal between the filter, o-ring, and reservoir
I like that the filter screws in to the system instead of just dropping it it. This forces the water to pass through the filter.
Ready to fill
I had been using one of ZeroWater's competitors for most of my life. Since I recently changed my my other water pitcher's filter; I thought it would be fun to compare the total total dissolved solids (TDS) in both pitchers and also our tap water.
ZeroWater won by a long shot! I am really surprised that my other filter left so many contaminants in our drinking water. ZeroWater recommends periodically testing your water and changing the filter when it tests 006 TDS. The competitive brand (with a week old filter) was already WAY past what ZeroWater considers acceptable. Looks like it's time to retire my old pitcher!
Most ZeroWater systems come with a water meter, so you can run a similar contest at home. In the 12-cup pitcher I was sent, the meter fits right into the lid.
Water meter and spigot under the handle
The model I received features a spigot to dispense the water. Since my three-year-old is becoming more independent, she loves to help pour her own water.
Helping mom is fun!
There's also a spout on top to pour into your cup or for fast dispense while cooking.
Time for some water
My husband and I agree that water from the ZeroWater pitcher tastes much better then our other pitcher. He usually opts for bottle water because our old pitcher leaves small pieces of carbon in your glass. We are happy that we can trust ZeroWater to provide clean water for our family, we'll be using their products for a long time!
