I live in an area that not only has hard water but bad tasting water. You can’t drink water right out of the faucet it simply tastes nasty. This has been a huge problem for our family because not only do I not like purchasing bottled water but it isn’t eco friendly to have all those water bottles even if I am recycling. I have wanted needed an alternate solution however not really had many ideas until now! I am super excited to have had the opportunity to try the ZeroWater pitcher and TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) Meter.
I was stalking my mailman waiting to get this because I couldn’t wait to start using it! We received the 10 cup pitcher, included filter, TDS meter, user manual and $35 in coupons for future filter purchases. The TDS meter conveniently fits inside the lid of the pitcher so you don’t have to worry about losing it.
I tested our regular tap water before using the pitcher and after along with the bottled water we purchase. The amount of dissolved solids significantly decreased with use of the water filter pitcher and the taste of the water was actually good! I was really amazed at what a difference the ZeroWater pitcher made and at how quickly it worked. I had the pitcher filled up and water ready to drink in less than a few minutes.

|This is the bottled water we PAY for, yes that is my baby’s cup! Yuck!|
|Now that is a great number! Water after going through our ZeroWater pitcher.|
Having the TDS meter you can really see the difference in the levels of chemicals in your water before and after using the ZeroWater pitcher. The filter has 5 stages of filtration which certifies it in removal of not only the chlorine taste from your tap water but also Chromium, Aluminum, Lead, Zinc, Nitrate and more. I love the pour-button spout feature that allows for filling your cups without having to remove the pitcher form the refrigerator (great feature for kids!). Something else that is super awesome, ZeroWater recycles their own used filters! You can find more information on their site to recycle your used filters.
