When I was sent the Zero Water system for home and on-the-go tumbler, I must admit I was a skeptic. You see, I live in Detroit home to the Great Lakes and I must say we have bomb water already. However, for the sake of the review I would try it and now let’s just say, I am officially a water snob!
Here are the scientific deets:
With ZeroWater you can enjoy great-tasting water with the latest advanced filter technology. The ZeroWater filtration system combines FIVE sophisticated patented technologies that work together to remove virtually all dissolved solids from your tap water, delivering great tasting water. These are the only pour-through filters on the market certified by the NSF to reduce lead and Chromium. ZeroWater filtration also reduces Fluoride from your water and other unwanted contaminants such as asbestos, plastics, pesticides, oestrogen, mercury and lead to name a few.
Here are the features:
ZEROWATER 5-STAGE DUAL ION-EXCHANGE FILTER FEATURES:
- Certified** to reduce Lead and Chromium
- Premium 5-Stage Dual-Ion Exchange filtration system
- Ion-Exchange system that removes virtually all dissolved solids in your water
- The FDA requires the TDS level in PURIFIED bottled water to reach 000-010ppm. ZeroWater is the only filter in its class to achieve this level.
ZeroWater’s first layer of filtration, activated carbon and oxidation reduction alloy removes the chlorine taste you are accustomed to with tap water. The Ion Exchange stage removes virtually all dissolved solids that may be left over from public water systems or even leached into your water from piping such as Aluminium, Lead, Zinc, Nitrate and many more. Three additional stages are included to remove and other contaminants to ensure tap water receives the appropriate amount of treatment time to deliver a “000” reading on the included laboratory-grade Total Dissolved Solids meter.
So in layman’s term here’s how it works:
Stage 1: Coarse filter removes fine particles/sediment.
Stage 2: Distributor maximizes contact time.
Stage 3: Multi-layer system uses activated carbon and oxidation reduction alloy.
Stage 4: Comprehensive ION EXCHANGE array.
Stage 5: Non-woven membrane removes fine particles.
Who knew water could taste so good and it’s officially Single Black Chick approved!
