When we moved from the mainland to the island we also moved from well water to city water. Now, if you live or have lived in a city you may be use to the chlorinated water, but I’ve been here 2 years and am still not use to it. I’ve always had well water which still had who knows what in it, but at least it didn’t taste like a freshly shocked pool. You city dwellers know that taste, right? Even getting a fountain drink at a convenience store carries the chlorinated taste – there’s no escaping it; at least nothing short of buying lots of bottled water which gets very expensive very quick.
We have a whole house filtration system that doesn’t really do much along the lines of filtering; this was something I was curious about and had proven recently. It sounded excellent at the time we chose it, making lots of claims and promising to make our water drinkable. It failed. Miserably. There are some days where the water is bearable, but you can definitely tell when the water is treated due to the overwhelming taste and smell.
We recently received the ZeroWater Pitcher and the built in TDS meter (measures Total Dissolved Solids) which allowed us to check how the ZeroWater Pitcher changed the quality of our water. Let me first say eww. The first thing I did before even setting the ZeroWater Pitcher up was check the quality of our current water. The first number we got was 483 which made it so I didn’t want to go near the water. A few days later I checked again and this is what we saw 267 (now keep in mind this is from a filtered tap, just what exactly is this filtering?!)
When I check the water from the ZeroWater Pitcher I receive a 0 every time. Zero! That means that there is nothing except water in this cup – Zero additives & sediments – zip, nada zilch! I love that the TDS meter actually shows you the difference so you have actual proof alongside the obvious taste difference. And with the ZeroWater Pitcher you have zero total dissolved solids which means you’re not ingesting the microscopic particles that may be present in your tap water (Aluminum, Lead, Zinc, Nitrate, pharmaceuticals etc..)!
The design of the ZeroWater Pitcher is very nice as well. It’s not bulky or space consuming at all. It fits nicely (and attractively) in the fridge allowing room for lots of other items. That’s so much less space than a case of bottled water would take up! Using the ZeroWater Pitcher straight from the fridge is as easy as pushing a button meaning there’s no need to worry about spills.
My family and I couldn’t be happier with the ZeroWater Pitcher. This is what filtered water is suppose to be! We have all been drinking a lot more water and that’s all thanks to the way ZeroWater took the nasty taste away (those are my sons words, and they’re completely true.)

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of ZeroWater and received a water pitcher to facilitate my review, two pitchers to giveaway, and extra filters to thank me for taking the time to participate.
