As much as I love to drink water, I absolutely hate drinking tap water. It always has a horrible taste to it, especially here at our new house. This means I’m constantly buying bottles of water as well as bags of ice (yes our fridge has an ice making but the ice gives our drinks a weird taste once it starts to melt). And yes, although I prefer bottled water I do sometimes take a sip of tap water when taking my medicine at night and it always leaves a funny taste in my mouth. Since I’m tired of always dragging home heavy bottles and bags, I want to go more green and stop having so much extra waster and I want to encourage Abby to drink more water I knew I needed to figure something out.
Recently I was given the opportunity to review the Zerowater 10 cup filter-pitcher and I couldn’t wait to really put it to the test. It came with very easy to follow instructions and we got to work testing our tap water and then trying out the ZeroWater pitcher. Hubby actually enjoyed reading the enclosed information, there’s a map of the US and it lists the TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) levels for each state (I liked this for next time we have to move!). I was impressed that Arkansas actually has some of the lowest TDS levels and wasn’t surprised to discover we beat out Texas and Louisiana. I know how that water tastes from personal experience. Arkansas falls into the second best level, the 051-200 and I was shocked when we tested our water and got a reading of 051! Wow…with a reading like that and I think it tastes dreadful, I can only imagine what it tastes like in the states where the levels are much much higher. After testing the tap water hubby filled up the pitcher and let the filter go to work. He then poured a glass and tested the filtered water coming up with a reading of 000 just like we should with the Zerowater filter-pitcher! He tasted the water and couldn’t really tell anything BUT he also doesn’t drink water. I took a sip and WOW what a difference! It tasted so much better! Finally my days of dealing with wasteful bottled water are over.
We have been using the ZeroWater Filter-Pitcher now for several days, I even filled ice trays up with filtered water, and I can tell a big improvement. The taste is so much better, Abby will even drink more water now! Our drinks don’t get an odd taste once the ice in them start to melt and I have definitely saved money from not having to buy bottled water. Plus the pitcher fits nicely in the fridge without taking up too much room. I’m glad I was given the opportunity to try out a ZeroWater pitcher and now I get to share one with you!
