Below you can read the full review by Summer, but I just had to share the results from my water tests as well. When I tested regular tap water, I got a reading of 39, the water that is supposedly filtered in my fridge got a 29 and the last cup of water which was poured from the Zero Water Pitcher got 0’s all across the screen! I know you may be wondering what in the world these numbers mean, so here is a little info to help you out.
Each Zero Water Pitcher comes with a removable TDS meter that measures your water for Total Dissolved Solids. The number you get from the meter represents the amount of dissolved substances in parts per million in the water you drink. Majority of the time when you lay out the cash for a water filter pitcher, you are assuming that it’s doing it’s job. With the Zero Water Pitcher, not only are they so confident that their product does exactly what it’s supposed to, but they even throw in the free meter which definitely adds to the value.
Zero Water is the only filtered water from a pitcher that meets the FDA’s definition for purifed bottled water. And on top of being safe for your family, the Zero Water pitcher and all of it’s components are recyclable, making it a great choice for the environment as well. One more thing I want to add before we get to Summer’s review. The push-button dispenser at the bottom of the pitcher (pictured below) was one of my favorite features, it made it easy for my daughter to help herself in the fridge, not only saving me time but saving me the mess. I actually made a video review for this product which showed not only how easy it was to test the water, but how easy it was for a two-year old to pour a glass of water, but after hearing how horrible my New Yawk accent sounds on video…I decided against it, lol.
The Zero Water Review by Summer from Le Musings of Moi
Many of you know, I’m a lover and a giver. Especially when it comes to Formula. And in making Chloe her drinkie drink, I try to mix the potent powder with only the best water I can find. I’ve recently been using the PUR Water filter, and have been blissfully happy with it.
Though it’s a bit more ($39.99 for the pitcher and one filter) than the cost of the Brita or the Pur (Each around $25), for me, for my Chloe, it’s definitely worth it.
Why am I so hooked?
Well first of all, it tastes so clean and so crisp and so…healthy. I think it’s as close to Holy Water that you can find. But, what really sold me was the TDS Meter (total dissolved solids) that came along with the purifier. This meter shows the amount of dissolved substances in parts per million in the water we drink.
Zero is completely pure. 500 is the maximum that FDA approves.
My husband and I set out to experiment. Tap water? 655! Ew!
Our Pur Water? 349…
Our Zero water? Um, zero. Ya, awesome.
Really, that was all I needed.
Now being the researcher I am, I have been online reading other reviews as well. Some absolutely love it, some are put off by the price, and then there are some that complain about a funky mildew odor after some extended time of use.
So far, I haven’t had any issues. Although in this economy, I know cost can definitely be an issue. And if you don’t mind solids in your water, then pay less and drink away.
But, if you want solid-less water, then this is definitely the filter to try. Have more questions, click herefor the FAQ page. Want to know where to buy it? Target, Walmart, Walgreens, and Home Depot.
