ZeroWater Ready Read Jug – The Perfect Way to Protect Your Health from Harmful Contaminants.
In the UK, tap water is generally considered safe to drink as it is subject to strict regulations and testing by water authorities. The drinking water supplied by water companies in the UK is treated to meet the standards set by the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI), which ensures that it is free from harmful levels of contaminants and pathogens.
Ultimately, the decision to filter drinking water is a personal one. Up for the challenge, Women Talking were keen to try the New Zerowater 12 cup ready read jug. Admittedly once you fill your jug, it is quite a slow process, for the water to filter through, however, patience is a virtue and you will reap the rewards when complete! As the taste and quality of the water will be greatly improved.
ZeroWater is a brand known for its water filtration products. The technology used by ZeroWater is called “5-stage filtration” or “5-stage ion exchange filtration.” The main idea behind this technology is to remove dissolved solids and impurities from tap water to provide purer and better-tasting drinking water.
The 5-stage filtration process involves the following steps:
Coarse Filter Screen: This stage helps to remove large particles and sediments from the water.
Foam Distributor: The water is evenly distributed across the filter to ensure efficient filtration.
Multi-Layer Activated Carbon and Oxidation Reduction Alloy: This layer targets chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other chemicals that can affect the water’s taste and odour.
Dual Comprehensive Ion Exchange Resin: In this stage, various ions like lead, mercury, zinc, and chromium are removed from the water.
Non-Woven Membrane: The final step in the filtration process that captures any remaining fine particles.
After passing through these five stages of filtration, ZeroWater claims to produce water with a total dissolved solids (TDS) reading of 0 ppm, hence the name “ZeroWater.”
TDS Meter – The built-in TDS meter is an intuitive addition to the water jug, that fits snuggly into the handle of the jug, this allows you to see how much Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are in your tap water before and after filtering. TDS is a measure of the minerals and other substances that are dissolved in water. UK tap water is generally considered to be safe to drink, but it can have a high TDS level. This is because UK tap water is treated with a variety of chemicals, including chlorine, fluoride, and lead. These chemicals can give tap water a bitter taste and can also be harmful to your health.
Purified Water: The ZeroWater Ready Read Jug removes 99.6% of TDS from your water, giving you pure, clean water that tastes great. It also removes lead, fluoride, and other contaminants that can be harmful to your health. In addition to improving the taste of your tap water, ZeroWater can also help to protect your health. By removing harmful contaminants from your water, ZeroWater can help to reduce your risk of developing a variety of health problems, including cancer, heart disease, and kidney disease.
Improved taste and odour: Some people may not enjoy the taste or smell of certain chemicals or additives used in the water treatment process. Filtration can help remove these substances, leading to a more pleasant taste and odour.
Health concerns: Some individuals, such as those with compromised immune systems or specific health conditions, may prefer an extra level of purification to ensure the water they consume is as clean as possible.
Easy to Use: just fill the jug with tap water, and the filter will do the rest. The filter will last for about two months of regular use.
Perfect for a Busy Household: Due to the 12-cup volume this water filtration jug is perfect for a busy household to ensure you and your family have easy access to filtered water.
Ageing infrastructure: In some older buildings or areas with outdated plumbing systems, there may be a higher risk of contaminants leaching into the water supply. Filtration can help mitigate this risk and provide an extra safeguard.
Having used the jug for several weeks now, I can state that ZeroWater is a great way to improve the taste and quality of your tap water. It’s also a great way to protect your health from harmful contaminants.
