Every year I make a promise to myself to drink more water and cut down on fizzy drinks. I manage it for a while but then end up crashing and burning every single time. I do buy a lot of bottled water but if we run out, I’m not too keen on drinking from my tap.
The tap water in the part of the village I live in isn’t the greatest. We live in a very hard water area and it takes a lot of running the tap to get a decent glass of water – but buying bottled water can be expensive – not to mention the environmental implications. When given the chance to review the ZeroWater 12-Cup Water Filter Jug (with free TDS meter), I just had to say yes – maybe I’d be able to enjoy tap water after all?
Now when we have bottled water in the house, we drink a lot of it. None of us hate water like you see some families say, we just hate our tap water. So anything that can help us to consume that particular water is always going to be worth a try for me – especially as it would make things a lot easier on the wallet!
Once it arrived, I removed from the packaging, gave it a quick wash up like I do all new kitchen items and then screwed the filter into place. I then added water and let it filter through before eventually trying the water for the first time. I definitely noticed a taste – I find our tap water has a slight chalky taste and as mentioned above, I try to avoid drinking it if I can. The water I poured from the pitcher didn’t taste chalky at all and tasted so much ‘cleaner’ if that’s the way to describe it – it tasted the way I find bottled water tastes and the water you get served in restaurants.
This has been a godsend these past few weeks when we have all been poorly too – we have been drinking a lot of water, trying to flush through the bugs we have had and just generally trying to feel better. This has been such a handy resource.
The jug retails at £39.99 and I think that it is a great price for the product. It is the first in its class to benefit from a sealed lid and reservoir which allows filtered water to be poured while water that hasn’t yet been filtered remains in the reservoir. There is also a one handed pull and pour button spout at the bottom for easy pouring such as filling bottles.
This also benefits from a patented 5 stage Ion Exchange Filtration system which removes virtually all dissolved solids from the water, giving great tasting water. It also reduces 99% of all fluoride and other inorganics from the water.
This has so far made the perfect addition to my kitchen and has enabled us to drink far more water than we usually would which can’t be a bad thing. If you are looking for a decent family sized water pitcher that filters your water, this might just be the product to check out.
