CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS, MARIA AND ANNETTE! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PLAYED, WATCH FOR MORE CONTESTS COMING YOUR WAY!
Do you have horrible water? I do, and what really sucks about that is that it’s NOT my pipes…my home was only built 5 years ago. No, I have horrible water because it’s chockful of limestone, which is advertised as “not bad for you”, but anything that corrosive can not be good for you. Forget about my rubbed bronze faucet, it’s destroyed. Not only is my water COMPLETELY undrinkable, straight from the tap, it’s also impossible to cook with, unless you like your rice and pasta to taste like plastic. I don’t even give this water to my cat. I use the teeny water filter system in my fridge to cook everything, which is a huge pain in the butt. It takes me forever to fill anything up, especially since Zoe snapped off the pedal piece that you need to release the water. And who can remember to change the filter, when it’s blended into the back of the refrigerator?
So it was a lovely day when I opened up my ZeroWater Pitcher yesterday. It’s a large container that purifies water for you. What is cool is that it comes with a TDS meter. This allows you to test the purity of your water, and measures how much “stuff” is in your water. I dropped it into a glass of unfiltered tap water and was shocked to see a reading of 199. That FREAKED me out, because the box has a photo of dirty filter reading of 128. Just to make sure I wasn’t crazy, I tested the filtered water from my fridge. Guess what? That reading was even worse! It came up as 249.
I filled the container, thinking there was NO way that my water could get purified. I carefully followed the directions and cooked dinner, waiting for the purification to be completed. After some time, I poured a cup of water and measured it. The TDS meter read “000″. Thinking this was too good to be true, I drank a sip, remembering that this water came directly from my tap.
Guess what? It tasted good, by which I mean it tasted like water: clean, clear, and no “flavor”. I was so excited! Finally, a water filter system I can trust, test, and that works like a charm. Now I can filter my tap water into the bottle, and just pour our to cook rice, pasta, and all my other water needs. I really like this product. The TDS meter snaps into the top so that you never lose it. My only complaint is that the water trickles out in a thin stream from the Pull & Pour button, but it’s easy enough to pour out of the pitcher directly.
