On my quest for weight loss and better health I drink a lot of water. I am always surprised how many people say they don't like the taste of theirs. Taste? How should water taste?
Yes, we have had water filtration pitchers in the house, multiples. It helped to make our tap water taste better and I had piece of mind that my drinking water was cleaner.
Except, I never had proof... just a hope.
When the ZeroWater Filtration Water Pitcher arrived, out of the box, it was different for two reasons. My husband noticed the spout on the back. Brilliant! One of the most frustrating things about a pitcher in the fridge has always been taking it in and out. With a spout, it can stay in the fridge or on the counter and be ready with a simple push of the button.
The other difference was the the inclusion of a TDS (total dissolved solids) tester. It fits right on top and is finally the proof to show there is a difference after filtration. It also tells when the filter should be changed and is no longer effective. I love this feature.
ZeroWater’s first layer of filtration, activated carbon and oxidation reduction alloy removes the chlorine taste you are accustom to with tap water. The Ion Exchange stage removes virtually all dissolved solids that may be left over from public water systems or even leached into your water from piping such as Aluminum, Lead, Zinc, Nitrate and more. Three additional stages are included to remove other impurities and to ensure your water receives the appropriate amount of treatment time to deliver a “000” reading on your laboratory-grade Total Dissolved Solids meter.Our well water measured 090, not too bad. But after filtration it reads 000.
My husband was the first one to notice the difference. He described it as "sweet". It reminded him of pure, naturally filtered runoff that you can drink backpacking in the mountains. I never would have described water as sweet, but it was actually a fitting description. It was very pleasant and taste testing our tap vs. the filter was another great way to prove the difference.
Impressed? Yes, we were. ZeroWater is a different filter and I am very happy to give it a prominent place in our home now.
