ZeroWater Pitcher Review + Giveaway {2 Winners!}

Monday, April 16, 2012

Zero Water PitcherWhen I first started following a holistic health program six years ago, one of the first things I learned was how important drinking purified water is to keeping the body functioning at an optimal level. That is why I am so thrilled to give the ZeroWater Pitcher a try. I live in Northeast Texas, Dallas to be exact, I call it the hard water capitol of the south. The tap water here tastes vile. I bought a water filtration pitcher right after we moved here and it does an okay job, but I can still detect a slight metallic aftertaste when I drink from it.

When my ZeroWater Pitcher arrived I literally tore open the box. I read all the literature that was included and learned about the TDS or Total Dissolved Solids in water. TDS comes from natural deposits and man-made sources and causes water to taste bad. The FDA standard for purified bottle water is a TDS reading of 000-010. A typical TDS reading for tap water in the US is 240 parts per million. I used the free TDS look-up at ZeroWater.com to find the reading for my zip code, it measures 176 pp/m. Ick. The ZeroWater Pitcher comes with a TDS meter, so I performed a little comparison experiment measuring the TDS of my tap water, the water from my old filtration pitcher (in order to be fair, I changed the filter in my old pitcher and washed it clean before the comparison test), and the ZeroWater Pitcher. Here are the results:

zero water review


I was surprised that my tap water TDS was lower than what the zip code look-up said, but I was even more surprised that the TDS of my old water filtration pitcher so high...only 49 pp/m lower than the tap water! What have I been drinking for the last four years?!

Why I love my ZeroWater Pitcher:
  • It keeps bottles and filters out of landfills. Even better, ZeroWater is the first major company to recycle gravity-fed filter cartridges from US consumers!
  • The capacity. It holds 10 cups of water which is twice the size of my old pitcher and means less refilling. Its filter is even bigger. No wonder it can catch all those nasty solid particles.
  • The water tastes fantastic...pure and clean!

At our location the TDS is a jaw-dropping 195; which doesn't surprise me given that I can actually see it.

The Rafflecopter calls me 'Margot' since it is accessing my facebook where I am 'Margot Core'.
