Zero Water Review and Giveaway


I've always used bottled water. I just hate the tap water taste. But for a couple of months now we have been using filtered water. I don't work as much anymore so we had to find ways to cut our grocery bills. We all know bottled water can be very expensive. Although I can still taste tap water taste with using our water pitcher filter, I have gotten used to it and it does not bother me anymore. My only concern is if it actually doing a good job filtering all the contaminants. That is why I still use bottled water for mixing my daughter's formula....Until I discovered Zero Water.

About ZeroWater® Pitcher

Zero Water® is the only filtered water from a pitcher that meets the FDA definition for purified bottled water.*

The Pitcher comes with the following products:
  • One ZeroWater® filter cartridge that removes contaminants that cause water to have an unpleasant taste.
  • An independently made TDS Meter to give you peace of mind that your ZeroWater® filter cartridges are working properly. It also lets you know when to replace the filters. When your water starts reading 006 it's time for a change.
  • The one-chamber Pitcher with lid has a pour spout, exclusive in-fridge push button dispenser and a special storage compartment for the TDS Meter.
  • More complete filtration than ordinary carbon filters
  • Clean, crisp taste
  • Includes one Pitcher, one filter, and one TDS meter.
When you purchase Zero Water, it comes with a TDS Meter which measures the amount of contaminant level. When it first arrived I tested our tap water, baby water and our filtered water. I was really surprise with the results. Our tap water tested 117 which is a typical range (51-200) and most water in the US falls into this group. I then tested the filtered water which resulted 73 , again a typical range (no wonder why it still tasted like tap water!) The baby water has 34 which has moderate contaminant level (2-50) but can still have dangerous impurities such as lead. And finally I tested Zero Water and the result is...ZERO!

Just with the result I was already convinced. I didn't even care how it will taste like. But even better because it is the best tasting water I ever tasted. It has a crisp clean taste! I know I will not be using any other pitcher but Zero Water. I have been using it to mix my daughter's formula for weeks now. It has already saved us a lot of money. I even got rid off our old pitcher filter!

  11. This what Better Homes & Garden had to say:
    Clear & Easy

    Use a water filtration system, such as a pitcher that filters water straight from the tap. "It removes impurities and the water tastes better than unfiltered water, so you'll drink more", Ellie says. You'll also feel good about not buying plastic water bottles. Our pick: Z-Pitcher I trust Better Homes and Garden

  15. I learned that even if a municipality were able to clean water to the extent that ZeroWater does, the water can pick up chemicals on its way from the treatment plant to the faucet, which gives tap water that typical taste.
