How important is the quality of the water you drink? Personally, I’m one of those people who always carry a bottle of water in their bag. It’s the best drink to quench my thirst, and I consider it vital for my health. This is why I will share my recent experience and what I discovered after purifying tap water with a Zerowater filter. Maybe it will help you too.
Providing bountiful health benefits, we are told to drink at least 2 litres of water a day. Some people buy plastic bottled water because it’s sourced from the ‘finest’ mountain ranges in the world.
What to expect during usage
I received, not long ago, a Zerowater filter that promised to remove twice as many contaminants as other jugs. I can say now that I didn’t expect to come to this surprising conclusion.
Since I have the water filter, I monitored the water quality before and after filtration with a TDS reader that comes with the product. TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids and is 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.
Water quality in cities across the UK has TDS score between 200-300. Sometimes is even above 300, as you will see in my video here. I live in central London and I was keen to test the tap water in my kitchen.
Most water filters contain a 2-stage filter, while Zerowater features 5-stage’ ion-exchange filtration system. The technology inside its jug has the only water filtration system to remove 99.6% of TDS. Amazingly with Zerowater, I disolved solids basically reduced the TDS to zero.
It is so powerful it turns red wine into water. It seems unbelievable, but watch the experiment done by Philip Schofield. This isn’t what the filter is meant for, but an example to show its strength.
Better breathing with purified water used with the air humidifier
I also started to use the purified water from the Zerowater filter with the air humidifier in my room. Amazingly, this helps me breathe much better during the night and the next day. To put it into context, now I manage to avoid constantly using the nasal spray for my chronic sinusitis, which makes a massive difference in my day-to-day life.
Long-term benefits in your pocket and your health
The Zerowater 12 cup with a 2.8-litre capacity is worth £39.99, and I believe it won’t be long before you harvest the benefits of your investment. Furthermore, think of reducing your plastic consumption and the positive impact on the planet, think of the long-term benefit in your pocket, and most importantly, your health.
