I recently received a ZeroWater water filter pitcher to review which comes with a TDS meter to test the water with! For this review, I started out by testing the water that comes out of the faucet at my house. Here are the results:
It is a 142! According to ZeroWater, that is in the “Typical Range” for water in the US as most water falls into this category. However, that still means that there is dissolved solids in the water! Yuck! So, then I tried the ZeroWater Pitcher and…
Yep! All 0’s! Can you believe it? A range of 000-001 meets the FDA requirement for purified bottled water! ZeroWater is the first and only pitcher that gives you standard bottled drinking water! Wow! Isn’t that awesome?
Given the range of my usual faucet water, I should be able to use the pitcher for 25 to 40 Gallons. I know this because ZeroWater also provides you with a chart that tells what each reading means and how many gallons you can expect from a filter. Isn’t that nice? It lets you know ahead of time. You aren’t forced to guess how many times. I was also impressed to learn that they list a number (1-800-503-2939) to call if you find your faucet water is extremely high so they can help you find an economical solution! Wow! Talk about customer service!
I also must point out the handy dandy spout on the bottom of the pitcher! See, here is a picture of the wonderful pitcher and its spout. This makes it easier to get water out if it is too heavy for you!
This is a very nice pitcher! The handle is nice and feels pretty good in your hand. The pitcher has a little thingy that moves when your pour the water, so that it covers the pitcher when you aren’t using it. I think this should keep the pitcher and water cleaner because it won’t let particles fall into it! Overall, a really good pitcher and I’d recommend it!
