I had no idea...
Well let me start by saying, I am very glad I found the Zero Water pitcher, it truly works wonders!
But now let me skip on to say, I am very very upset! Not at Zero Water, at something else. Last month I purchased a PUR water filter, it hooks right onto the faucet.
(The Zero Water Pitcher comes with a TDS Meter which tests how many ions are in the water; The lower the better. Here is the scale and what coincides with the amount of ions:
TAP WATER TDS CONTAMINANT LEVEL
000-001 Meets FDA definition of
purified bottled water
051-200 Typical Range
301-500 Exceptionally High
Now with the PUR Water filtration system guess what my TDS level was? 302! I just replaced the filter 2 days ago, so to find this out I was very very upset! I will not even consider using PUR again, for the same price as a Zero Water Pitcher I could have been drinking better, fresher water.
But enough negativity. I have fallen in love with the Zero Water Pitcher. It was so easy to use! I started by testing out the TDS level (as I had previous talked about) and I was very upset. But I went ahead and rinsed out my pitcher. And followed further instructions. It was simple, I just filled the resevoir (see diagram below) with cold tap water and replaced the lid, I let the water pass threw the filter and then in a couple minutes I was drinking fresh, delicious water.
I can honestly say I could definitely taste a difference in the water, it tasted just like a store bought bottle of water. Clean, crisp and clear! The Zero Water pitcher can be used as your average everyday pitcher by simply pouring out the spout or you can use the Push Button located at the bottom, this keeps things so simple! Instead of havign to take out the pitcher from the fridge everytime you can just bring your glass over and fill right from the fridge shelf. So simple!
I love love love my Zero Water Pitcher, If you have not tried it out I really recommend it! It's like bottled water without the bottles (and excess money!!)
The wonderful people at Zero Water are letting me give 1 of you a Zero Water Pitcher and TDS meter of your own!
