Help the Environment with Zerowater – Women Talking Online Magazine
Help the Environment with Zerowater – Drinking water has never been so popular in my house!
Having been introduced to the simplicity of Zerowater, not only is it quick and easy to filter, the taste is clean and pure, but most conveniently the jug has a handy pull and pour button spout for easy pouring from the fridge or for filling bottles. This has been the selling point in my household as refilling recyclable bottles is an ongoing process for those of us who are health-conscious and environmentally aware.
Water is an essential part of life with estimations suggesting that an average person uses over 100 litres of the stuff a day. Providing bountiful health benefits, we are told to drink at least 2 litres a day (around 8-10 cups). Many people buy endless amounts of plastic bottled water because it is from the finest mountain ranges in the world, the Zerowater 12 cup/2.8 litre Jug should make you think again.
To get scientific for one moment, TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids and is essentially a measure of substances present in the water aside from H2O. This could include organic substances like silt, dead leaves and regrettably even sewage or inorganic substances like fluoride, chlorides, sulphates, and equally as worrying, metals such as lead and copper. Some cities in the UK have TDS readings of above 300, by using Zerowater they reduce to Zero. Hence, the name Zerowater. My local reading was 281, which is about an average reading for Greater London.
Zerowater aims to move the score to zero. Zerowater features an unrivalled 5-stage ‘ion-exchange filtration system, its filter Jug removes those nasty bits.
The ion-exchange technology inside Zerowater means they can proudly boast to be the only water filtration system to remove 99.6% of TDS. Most others only contain a 2-stage filter, thereby removing a lot less of those TDS and simple carbon-only water filters remove less. Removing 99.6% of TDS means it provides the equivalent levels of TDS as you would find in any purified bottled water (a microscopic 0.04%). Great news for the vast number of households up and down the country who live in areas with high TDS levels.
You might be wondering how you can prove this? To reassure you and to allow you to monitor the ongoing effectiveness of your Jug, Zerowater comes with a free ‘laboratory grade’ water quality reader. The reader measures the total dissolved solids we discussed earlier to determine and ensure you are drinking the purest tasting water. We also found this a great gage to compare other types of water we have been drinking in the household from bottled to filter systems.
Against other water filter jugs, I have previously used, the Zerowater 12 cup/2.8 litre capacity Jug has been uniquely designed with a sealed lid and the reservoir even allows you to dispense filtered water whist the water which has not yet been filtered remains in the reservoir. The only Filter Jug in its class to provide this technological feature lends a further 2 cups of water to its capacity.
Not only are we helping to reduce our plastic consumption, but there is also a positive impact on the planet.
