A couple years ago we purchased my “dream” refrigerator! The biggest wow with it is the fact that it has an ice and water dispenser, something I’ve always wanted on a refrigerator and never had. We do have a filtration system on it, but I often can’t keep up with replacing the filters before they are considered not good any more. I was very excited about getting the opportunity to review the ZeroWater pitcher.
I truly want the best for me and my family, especially the things that go into our bodies. I was really interested in not only getting a water pitcher with an advanced water filtration system that removes that just about all…if not all of the disolved solids from our water. The ZeroWater pitcher comes with a TDS Meter, which measures the total disolved solids. Seriously you could have fun with this – measuring your tap water, your refrigerator water if you have a dispenser and even bottled water that you have.
So I took some measurements of my water, specifically my tap water, my refrigerator dispenser water and the ZeroWater pitcher water. My tap water measured at 156. According to the ZeroWater literature that is were most water in the USA falls into. My refrigerator dispenser water measured 133. Again, that falls into the same category as the tap water. My filter for the refrigerator is way overdue to be changed, so once I get a new filter for that I will be very interested in seeing how that filtered water measures. My husband has always told me that he thought the filter lasted longer then they said since he doesn’t think we go through as many gallons as they say. Apparently it’s not helping at all! Now for the water that was filtered through the ZeroWater filtration system, it measured 000.
I have been living in Illinois my whole live…almost, so I am pretty well acclimated here. In fact, until I got this pitcher and compared the different smells of the water side-by-side, I didn’t even notice just how much our tap water does smell of chlorine. I don’t even use chlorine to clean my house because of the nature of the product. Here are some total dissolved solids that may be found in your water but will not be found in the ZeroWater pitcher: Salt, Metals, Road Salts, Old Piping, and Leaves.
We are all loving our new water pitcher and the fact that the water is not only without these TDS’s, but also tastes great! It also fits very nicely in our refrigerator and has a nice little push button for the water so the kids can help themselves. Although The button is a little too hard for our 4 year old twins to push, but that is probably a good thing!
