I am super picky about water. Like beyond super picky. If I even think I can taste something in it, I won’t drink it. I had well water for a long time that tasted just like spring water, so I really didn’t have much use for filters. Then we moved, and the well water in our current home has sulfur in it. Talk about a high yuck factor! It’s bad enough having to smell it when I’m showering or doing laundry, but I absolutely cannot drink it. I’ve tried several different options, from water softeners to different types of faucet filters, but nothing really worked, until the ZeroWater Pitcher.
The ZeroWater Pitcher Pros and Cons
I can honestly say that this is one of the most impressive products I’ve ever tried. It is THAT good. The water that ran through the filter tasted exactly like it’s supposed to…like nothing. Just plain, normal, perfect water. The ZeroWater Pitcher removed every last trace of the sulfur taste and anything else that may have been affecting the quality. No more spending a fortune on jugs and bottles of water at the grocery store, no more drinking nasty stuff when I run out of the good stuff. I can have clean, pure water any time of the day or night.
I can only think of two “cons,” and they’re not really all that bad. First, it does take a long time to fill the pitcher. You have to put water into the first chamber and let it filter down through into the main pitcher. So if you want a whole pitcher for, say, your coffee pot, it’s going to take a few minutes. Second, when you use the main spout on top to pour water, it comes out a little fast. If you’re just getting a glass of water, use the handy built-in spout towards the bottom of the pitcher.
The TDS Water Tester
The ZeroWater Pitcher comes with a cool little TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) meter to test the purity of the water. Basically, anything over 000 means your water has some sort of metal or other impurities in it. My water before filtering with the ZeroWater Pitcher was 145. After, it read 003, so there are still very minute traces in it, but it’s mostly pure. To use, take off the cap, dip the tip into less than 2-inches of water, and read. It gives you the reading almost instantaneously.
