Gee, My Water Tastes Great! ZeroWater Review
As a mom of six kids clean water is important. We drink A LOT of water in my house. Naturally, I am concerned about how pure my tap water is. We live in w house built in 1959 and along with some of the “old house charm” comes old house pipes, and perhaps, less than stellar city water.
We go on a lot of hikes, both within our urban city and in the surrounding prairie, and we often pack water for these trips. Purchasing bottled water for eight of us seems not only environmental foolish, but economically foolish as well. So we have a slew of re-usable safe water bottles.
So, if I take the time to make sure my water bottles are safe, why would I fill them with contaminated water? Last year our community survived a very destructive flood, and it leaves me wondering about the purity of our water supply.
And, let’s face it. I’m a little bit of a skeptic. Just because a water filter SAYS that it removes impurities, where is the solid proof that it really does?
So, for these reasons, and for curiosity’s sake as well, I volunteered to participate in a product tour of ZeroWater with some of my favorite fellow bloggers through Mom Central.
I’m going to be honest, what really sold me on the ZeroWater water filtration pitcher was the fact that it came with a meter. Yes folks, this girl needs proof! (Which is why I have given my UV sanitizer to my middle school son to do a science experiment with…the jury is still out!).
When my ZeroWater pitcher arrived, I immediately checked the state of our current tap water. It measures 281 parts per million (ppm) of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). Now, I don’t know for sure what those Total Dissolved Solids are…but 281 ppm seems like a lot to me. So, I washed and prepared the pitcher and filter, poured some water in and it measured. . .000 ppm.
That, my friends, is a difference that I can quantify. That, my friends, is a difference that I can taste.Zero Water pitchers are NSF certified to remove Lead and Chromium from your drinking water.
Do you know what else? It makes my coffee taste SO MUCH BETTER! Every few days I would get a pot of coffee that tasted stale. Since switching to the ZeroWater Pitcher, the coffee tastes crisper, if that is possible.
The ZeroWater pitcher that I was sent has a 10 cup capacity, which works out OK for our family. But, when summer comes around and everyone is home all of the time, drinking even more water, I think we might need to invest in the ZeroWater Bottle that has a 4.5 gallon capacity.
- Effectively filters out impurities.
- Water tastes great
- affordable system
- Spigot at the base of the handle allows you to pour water while water is filtering
- You need to keep monitoring your filtered water to know when the filter is no longer working
- Takes a while to filter
- 10 cup capacity may not be big enough for larger families.
Bottom line: I love it! We’ll be using this in our kitchen from now on, and especially bringing it with us on camping trips and the like.
The ZeroWater pitcher is available at Target, WalMart, Bed Bath & Beyond and Amazon.com.
