ZeroWater Filtration System Review and Giveaway ( 2 winners!)





When we moved down south the first thing brought to our attention was the quality of the water. It was recommended to us upon purchasing our home, to immediately have the quality of water tested. The water purifying systems here are constantly malfunctioning and we often find ourselves with brown water after stormy days. Needless to say, although I admit to cooking with the water ( I figure it’s being boiled) we do not drink it. We buy 2 cases of bottled water a week on top of three gallon bottles of water. As you can imagine this gets quite pricey and all hose bottles aren’t really great for the environment.

When given the opportunity to check out the ZeroWater Pitcher I figured it was worth a shot. Hopefully, I would be a little more trusting of our water and be able to save a few dollars a week by purchasing less bottled water.




My first question was how does the ZeroWater Pitcher work and how would it improve my water? 

The ZeroWater filtration system combines FIVE sophisticated technologies that work together to remove virtually all dissolved solids from your tap water, delivering you great tasting water. 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 (TDS)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.

Included with your pitcher your will find a TDS testing stick. This will allow you to see for yourself between water filtered through the ZeroWater Pitcher and straight tap water.

The first thing I did when our pitcher arrived, was of course, test my unfiltered waters TSD level. The average TSD level for my city was around 266. My waters level was 318! What was more alarming was the fact that my filtered fridge water was a 384. This whole time we assumed since the fridge water went through a filter, it was way better then our tap water. This was a total shock to me.



After I filled our ZeroWater Pitcher I again tested the  water filtered through the ZeroWater pitcher - level which went down to a ZERO!


 After seeing the difference in levels I felt much more secure allowing my family to drink our water through the ZeroWater pitcher. Now, I have to be honest and tell you I am not a huge water drinker, it all taste the same to me. My husband however, is a water fanatic and will only drink certain brands - he has always been against drinking either our tap water or fridge water. After showing him our TSD test results, I was able to convince him to try a cup of water filtered through the ZeroWater Pitcher. The result.... he said,  "it  actually tastes pretty good." No chlorine like flavor just cold, crisp drinking water. He has even given me the OK to fill some of our reusable bottle with “zero water” for him to take to work.

My kids love the pitcher for the simplicity of it – you can pour it from the spout like you would do with any pitcher or you can use the tap. The tap is really convenient for them when the pitcher is at full capacity and hard for them to handle. This way they can leave the pitcher in the fridge and simply place their cup beneath the spout, press the button and fill their glass.
