Wondering what may be lurking in your water? Check out Zero Water's water tester and its line of water filtration products
Unless the water from your tap looks cloudy or worse, turns out like mud water, you are unlikely to give a hoot about the amount of dissolved substances in the water you drink.
However as we know, not knowing what's in the water doesn't mean it's safe for long-term consumption.
But with Zero Water Electronic Water Tester, now you can actually test the total dissolved solids in your water. This digital thermometer-like tester will indicate a 3-digit figure when you insert it in about an inch of water, giving you a general idea of how much impurities there are in your water. The higher the number, the lower the water quality.
According to the company, cities in the US average between 150 to 200, though some areas such as Las Vegas can range as high as 700.
The TDS meter doesn't tell you what have been dissolved in the water, though. It only gives you an indication of the purity of the water.
Zero Water Filtration Devices
But what are you going to do if you found that the water you've been drinking contains unidentified dissolved substances? Well, since Zero Water provides a means for you to test your water, it must also offer a way to remove those impurities.
Enter their water pitcher and water cooler system that contain a 5-stage ion-exchange filter in their core. The filter is designed to remove almost everything from the water by passing water through each of these 5 stages:
- Stage 1: A 20 to 50 micron filter designed to remove suspended solids such as dust and rust that make your water appear cloudy.
- Stage 2: Activated carbon that is Class I rated to remove chlorine.
- Stage 3: A water distributor screen maximizes contact time to remove more suspended solids.
- Stage 4: Specialty resins that reduce levels of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and chromium in your water.
- Stage 5: A one micron filter designed to remove fine suspended solids.
You must be wondering what's the reading like for the water purified by Zero Water's filtration system? It measures 000 on the TDS meter! As a comparison, conventional filtered water measures between 030 to 500, while bottled water reads between 000 to 350.
But, can you trust a water tester that comes from a company selling its own water filters? Well, the electronic meter is understood to be manufactured independently, so there should be some reliability you can count on.
In fact, Zero Water is so confident with their products that they are including a TDS meter free with every purchase of their water pitcher or water cooler. And when your meter reads 006, it's time to replace your Zero Water filter.
If you are worried that your used water filters are going to end up in some land dump, fret not. Simply send your used filters back to the company and get a shipping discount for your next purchase. So you get clean water, a peace of mind and spend less money all at the same time!
