[Bed Bath And Beyond] ZeroWater 10-Cup Pitcher Water Filtration System ($24.99)

Zero water is known for the best consumer water filter pitchers. The pitcher comes with a TDS meter that shows you the amount of TDS in your water.

"ZeroWater—with its five-stage ion-exchange filter--can in fact get the TDS down to zero parts per million (average TDS in tap water is 127 parts per million)."

The filters are relatively expensive compared to others like Brita but I know some people navigate around this by using cheaper Brita pitchers to filter the water first, then filter the water with the Zerowater pitcher which removes more from the water than Brita can and helps to extend the life of the Zerowater filter.

There are many studies on the adverse health effects of drinking demineralized water a long period of time. Humans have been drinking 'mineralized' water since the dawn of time, and has some key essential minerals that you would miss (magnesium, calcium) not to mention fluoridation that is scientifically proven to prevent dental caries / tooth decay.

95% of the tap water in Canada is perfectly fine to drink straight out of the tap.

How does this compare to the Brita filter system? Also how much are the replacement filters?

I looked into Zerowater for a bit. The good thing about their filters is that they remove lead, unlike Brita. However, according to reviews and depending what your source water is like, the filters tend to get used up quickly and sometimes start smelling like fish. The pitchers themselves are reportedly flimsy too. I ended up sticking with Brita.

The Brita faucet mount and Longlast filter removes lead.

Had about four individual Zero water bottles they all broke in different places on different occasions when they fell maybe like less than a foot? Even when one was protected in my carry on suitcase and surrounded by clothes a drop or something must have caused the insides to break. I speculate this might be because the filter is mounted off centre with flimsy plastic.

The filters themselves are also pretty fragile, I had one of them spill plastic beads out after a tumble.

For something that sits in a fridge all day the pitcher being so fragile might not really be such a big deal, but the individual water bottles are trash. Water tasted pretty good though. I used these almost exclusively for travel to destinations where it was advisable to drink bottled water.

good find, i was looking for filter as its almost time to replace the filter. i've been using zero water for few months now and love it, i just couldnt drink tap water eventhough we have most safe water in canada (BC), i just couldnt take tap water smell but zero water gets rid of that smell. i know some saying minernal is needed and stuff but water taste great after filtering. i also did the measuring check thing between nestle bottled water, tap water and zero water filtered water and numbers are like following:

nestle bottled water: 89
tap water: 13
zero water: 0

* lower the better

ordered 2 pictures + 2 filter and used $20 off over $80 and paid $78 total after tax + free shipping.

thanks

Have you tried the Longlast filter? The few reviews I’ve read say they don’t actually last very long at all which stopped me from trying them.

I can't tell if this is a joke. The slang would suggest that it is. I hope it is.

Longlast is a pleated filter like an oil filter, did not last long and found it took way to long to filter. Only benefit I see is it supposedly capable of removing lead.

I been drinking ZeroWater for over a year now. I too was worried about it removing minerals but based on my research and speaking to my doctor, there’s barely any minerals in tap water. Most of the minerals your body needs actually come from the foods you eat. Take a look at the official published analysis of Toronto’s tap water from the City of Toronto.

For example, in 1L of Toronto’s tap water, the calcium content is 36mg and magnesium content is 9.1mg. Compare that to the recommended daily intake for calcium which is around 1000mg and for magnesium is around 400mg.

I have been using this since January. I don't like the taste of demineralized water LOL, but it does taste better to me than plain tap water, which I hate. The filters are very easy to get at several stores. If you forget to check the water using the stick, you will start to smell fish and know it's time for the filter to go

this is very true. it comes from fruits and other dietary stuff you eat on the regular.
drinking demineralized water is only harmful to the body if that is the ONLY thing you ever consume. If you eat a daily balance of fruits and veggies you'll be absolutely fine.

Zerowater tastes great and the customer-service has been prompt to replace my broken/defective units under their warrranty.
