- TDS Meter lets you know when filter cartridges are working properly and the number of detectable dissolved solids. Also lets you know when to replace the filters. When the water starts reading "006", it is then time to change the filter
- Special storage compartment for the TDS Meter
The ZeroWater® Filter Pitcher and ZeroWater® filters have been tested and certified by the following independent organizations against the relevant standard for reduction of these substances:
Substance Certifying Agency NSF/ANSI Standard Lead NSF International 53 Chromium NSF International 53 Mercury NSF International 53 Hydrogen Sulfide NSF International 42 Chlorine Taste and Odor NSF International 42 Iron WQA 42 Zinc WQA 42
It is essential to change the filters with a reading of "006" on the included TDS meter in order for the product to continue to perform as represented. The longevity of the filter may vary based on local water conditions. Filter cartridge life is based on household water consumption and inlet water quality. How often the cartridge needs to be replaced is determined by how much water you put through the system and how hard the cartridge has to work to clean the water you put through it. The more dissolved solids in your water (or the higher your TDS reading), the shorter the cartridge life. Under laboratory protocols, a single filter was rated for 22.5 gallons in the certification process. The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by this water treatment device are not necessarily in all users' water.
When removing the TDS meter from pitcher storage compartment wait approximately 5 minutes allowing the meter to reach room temperature for accurate reading.
1. Remove the cap from the end of the TDS Meter.
2. Push the "ON/OFF" button. The meter should read "000".
3. Place the end of the meter in one inch of water. Do not fully submerge the TDS Meter; this may short circuit the battery.
4. Wait a few seconds for the reading to stabilize. To keep the reading on the display, press the "HOLD" button so that you can read the number when you remove the meter from the water.
5. Do not use in hot water
- There is a nice handle design which makes pouring and carrying comfortable and easy.
- The in-fridge push button dispenser is a unique feature we haven't seen and allows the user to disperse water straight from the refrigerator. This eliminates the need to take out and pour into a glass, which is especially helpful if the pitcher is completely full and heavy
- The 5-stage filter did a great job removing common contaminants from the water. Most noticeably the taste and odor of chlorine was significantly reduced
- We found no leaking of water when pouring from the spout
- By having a water pitcher in the home, one can greatly reduce the amount of bottled water purchased
- The filters are rather big and more pricey compared to some of our other water pitcher filters but they do last up to 25 gallons depending on water conditions.
- Have to carefully make sure that no water enters the compartment where the TDS Meter is sitting in. The meter can become damaged if it is sitting in lots of water over time.
Summary:A water filter pitcher may be limited in their performance compared to a more costly countertop or under sink water filtration system, but it is a great alternative for those who are satisfied with removing the most common impurities in their water supply. As we all know, not all tap water is perfect and there may be some instances where due to higher levels of specific contaminants (such as arsenic) it may be necessary to install a countertop or under the sink water filtration system. When compared to traditional water pitchers out on the market today, we found Zero's 5-stage filter to be more effective and resulting in better tasting, crisp and healthy drinking water. Its stylish design and thoughtful dispenser made the Zero a perfect fit in the refrigerator without taking too much space.
