ZeroWater Pitcher! ~Giveaway!

ZW 2 Water. We’re made up about 55% water. You can’t go long without it. But boy, can you find some bad water out there! Our well water is a case in point. Iron bacteria. Sulphur bacteria. High sodium, iron and several other items. High TDS (total dissolved solids). Given everything we were working with, we ended up going with a system my husband designed that involves pre-treatment with ozone, then a whole home RO (reverse osmosis) system. I can tell you one thing – it’s beautiful water for your appliances and sinks – no water spots or mineral build up. We do re-mineralize a bit after to prevent the pH from being too far off neutral. However, I’m not a fan of it for drinking. I’ve grown up drinking well water and I loved the well water at our first acreage, and to me RO water tastes “dead”. And really, it is. It has nothing in it other than water and we need minerals! If you’ve ever tried fermenting anything – RO water generally doesn’t work!

ZWAnyway, I’ve gotten a bit distracted from my point here! My point is – any of us who have access to good, clean water are LUCKY! Read that again. We’re LUCKY! You don’t have to travel too many miles to find people who are struggling with their water! Go to third world countries – not only do they not have food, they don’t have a good source of water! Go to Flint, Michigan and ask them about their water! And perhaps you live in a city or town that treats the water with chlorine. Ever noticed that plenty of it comes through to your tap? Ever noticed that you’re drinking it? Bathing in it?

ZeroWater is committed to improving your drinking water. They have come up with a filter that, I would say, is about as close to RO water as you’ll get without having an RO system. If you take a peek at their comparison charts, you’ll see some pretty impressive numbers regarding what their filter will take out. Our previous acreage had high nitrates/nitrites – which is generally only a problem for pregnant women and babies under 6 months of age. Since that was me and our children for a good portion of the time we lived there, we ended up purchasing an under counter unit that would remove the nitrates/nitrites. At that time, we had not found anything like the ZeroWater pitcher that would remove them!

Here’s a few details on the pitcher:
– Patented 5-stage ion exchange filter compared to most on the market that are only 2-stage
– Removes 99.6% of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
– All pitchers are certified to reduce Lead, Mercury & Chromium by the NSF
– Only Filtration System to Reach the FDA Approval of PURIFIED Bottled Water (000-010 TDS)
– ZeroWater pitchers range from 6 – 23 cups
– Available at major retailers across the US and Canada

ZW 3ZW 5 Now just what did I think about the ZeroWater pitcher? First – I love the stainless steel and black combination pitcher. I don’t know about you but sometimes I get tired of the white that everything seems to come in. This pitcher is a classy addition to your table! I also really like the fact that it comes with a TDS monitor! It’s a little stick tool that you stick into your water to check your TDS level. You have to keep in mind that every person’s water is different. Therefore, every person will find that their filter needs to be changed at different intervals!

What don’t I like about this pitcher? Just a couple minor things. First, I found that the lid need to have a bit deeper lip on it – it was difficult to get it on straight and true without fiddling with it. Also, perhaps because of that, it comes off way too easy. I actually find that I have to hold the lid on to pour water because if I don’t, it falls off. Secondly, the TDS tester fits in a slot on the lid. However, again, it’s not snug enough. Therefore, I don’t recommend storing it there or you might find it in a glass of water when you didn’t expect it! Lastly, personally, I would probably not choose to use this pitcher on a regular basis. Because ZeroWater has packed a lot of punch into their filter, it’s quite a big filter and therefore the jug without water is quite heavy. I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who struggles with lifting and pouring heavy items.

ZW 4HOWEVER, ZeroWater makes a fantastic filter. So if you do struggle with your water, if you have loads of chlorine in it, if you’re worried about other contaminants in your water, I would highly recommend this filter! The pitcher I received is an 8 cup pitcher and if we didn’t have an RO system already, what I would seriously look at purchasing is their 23 cup dispenser. It could be stored in the fridge if you like your water cold. Or, if you’re like me and like it lukewarm, you could keep it on your counter. I like the fact that with the dispenser I would never have to pour water out of the jug and thus while the filter is working, you can dispense your water out of the tap on the front of the dispenser, and never worry about knocking a lid off or pouring it too soon!

One thing I can’t attest to you in this review is how long their filters last. As I said earlier, it fully depends on your water. Given that our water is RO water already, it has no where near the 200 TDS that their website says tap water often has. It’s more like 20. Therefore, this filter would last much, much longer for us.  Since our water wasn’t much of a test on the filter, I got my husband to bring home a bottle of water from work – which is town water.  The TDS on it was 512!  And it’s pretty heavily chlorinated!  After being filtered?  The TDS monitor read 000 and there was NO chlorine flavor left!  Fabulous!

Wondering how much the filters cost? They’re about $14US per filter, however if you love the filtered water they produce, you can purchase as many as 16 at a time off their website! If you do so, the price falls to $9.99US per filter. You can also purchase both the filters and the jugs either online through ZeroWater or through any one of their retailers.

  2. I “think” it’s fine.

  3. Lynda Cook says:

    No I have awful water, we have our own point but we also have very hard and very high in iron water, and boy you can tell when we need salt in the machine, this would be great to have to be able to have filtered water in the fridge to drink!
