Thank you ZeroWater for sponsoring this post. All opinions included within this post are my own and based on my own experiences.
For various reasons, I’ve never been a tap water drinker. I moved from solely bottled water to a pitcher filtration system years ago and assumed I was drinking good quality water. It wasn’t until having a baby that I started to rethink our water situation.
We are renting an apartment for the next year or two, so it didn’t make sense to invest in a water filtration system for the house. It’s not a sustainable solution to purchase bottled water, especially for a family of four. So that kind of put me back where I started – using a pitcher filtration system. “But how good can the filter in pitchers be?”, I thought.
I stumbled upon ZeroWater filters and was lured in by the TDS (total dissolved solids) meter. The meter, in my opinion, is genius. Not only are you able to test the quality of your water filter initially, but you’re able to test it after time passes so you know, without a doubt, it’s time to change your filter.
As soon as I received the ZeroWater pitcher, I tested my tap water (Austin, TX) and my current filter water. My tap water read 125 ppm and my current filter read 111 ppm (WHAT!). I was super impressed that the meter read 000 when I tested the water filtered through the ZeroWater pitcher. And, also to my surprise, I could tell the difference in the taste of the water as well. My husband didn’t believe me when I told him, but he was able to tell the difference too. It’s that noticeable.
So what does ZeroWater’s five stage water filtration technology remove? Almost 100% of chromium, lead, mercury, chlorine, and fluoride. It’s the only filter certified by the NSF to reduce both lead and chromium. And I can tell you with 100% certainty that I don’t want any of that stuff making its way into my baby’s cup.
In addition to feeling good about the water you’re drinking, ZeroWater will make you feel good about helping others drink good water too! ZeroWater has a community outreach and assistance program that matches each donation 1 to 1. Though this program, ZeroWater has been able to help communities struggling with access to clean water like Flint, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, and Chicago.
