I was raised on well water in the mountains. We didn’t have much, but we had great water out of the tap. An icy cold glass of water in the summertime was as close to Heaven on Earth as you could get in Appalachia.
When I moved to city and to suburb, the tap water tasted bad to me. It smelled flat, and sometimes even faintly of chlorine. We’ve had many filter pitchers, bought bottled water, and now have a refrigerator with a built-in filtering system. Anything to have water-flavored water.
I felt a tiny bit silly reviewing the ZeroWater pitcher since we have a fridge with built-in water filtration, but I wondered if we could get even closer to that pure-tasting water I grew up with.
The ZeroWater pitcher was easy to set up, easy to fill, and it looks good in my fridge. It’s slim and has a pour spout at the base of the handle. I don’t even have to take it out of the fridge to dispense water.
My husband likes to fill our kettle with water filtered through our fridge. Also, I like to get water I cook with from the same place. We think it tastes better and removes impurities from the tap water.
The coolest feature of the pitcher is the resting place on top that holds the testing meter that checks for TDS, or Total Dissolved Solids.
See my own results from testing the TDS in the water my family drinks. The TDS meter detects particles per million, or PPM.
I tested everything in the same glass, and I tested the ZeroWater pitcher first, in case the glass had soap or other particulates in it.
I was very surprised that the filter in our fridge does only a slightly better job than NOTHING at all. Also, I *knew* the cold water out of the tap would be cleaner than the hot water.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of ZeroWater and received a water pitcher to facilitate my review, two pitchers to give away, and extra filters to thank me for taking the time to participate.”
