ZeroWater Filter Jug Review

There is no denying the benefits of drinking water and every January I promise myself this will be the year I up my intake. As we live in a hard water area, the tap water doesn't taste the best so unless I remember to buy bottled water my good intentions fade pretty quickly. 2019 has been different though thanks to my new secret weapon, the ZeroWater 12 cup filter jug. You may recognise it if you were watching How to Spend It Well at Christmas where Philip Scholfield demonstrated just how amazing it is by turning wine into water (yes, you did read that right). Here is the clip if you want to see for yourself.

Wha Makes the ZeroWater Filtration System Different? 

The ZeroWater filtration jug has been created to make drinking perfectly filtered water easier. ZeroWater is the only gravity-fed filtration system to match the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) levels found in purified bottled water, the result is great-tasting water, straight from the tap.

ZeroWater uses a 5-stage filtration system unlike all the other filter jugs currently available on the market. Did you know the average glass of tap water contains large amounts of lead, heavy metals, or chromium? The good news is ZeroWater removes 99.6% of all toxins.

The filter itself is like a plastic coffee cup that you screw into the jug which the water in the reservoir trickles through and the magic happens.

Putting ZeroWater Filtration to the Test

The ZeroWater jug comes with a TDS water quality tester which slots neatly into the lid. To see exactly what we were dealing with I decided to do a before reading of my tap water which came out at 3.05.

Now for the moment of truth, once through the filter, our first glass of water came out as an amazing 0.00 and it definitely tasted better.

 Design & Usability

The ZeroWater 12 cup filter jug is ultra-modern looking. It has a sealed lid and reservoir which allows filtered water to be poured while water which hasn’t yet been filtered remains in the reservoir. It also has a one-handed pull and pour dispenser spout which my kids love as it allows them to refill their own bottles and cups at the push of a button.

I keep our 12-cup filter jug on the kitchen counter as it is too big to fit in the fridge without a massive reorganisation of shelves, but the good news is if you are looking for a compact version that would fit in the fridge door there is a smaller 7 Cup version available. 


So has it worked? Have I upped my water intake? Yes, I have to say I have and I am not the only one in the family, the kids are definitely drinking more water too which may be due to the novelty of filling their own drinks using the dispenser. The water tastes great and the readings are consistently coming out at 0.00. I will be interested to see how long the filter lasts, based on the filter info on the ZeroWater site, our water falls just inside the exceptionally high contaminant level so we will get 30-55 litres before we need to change the filter. 

Would I recommend ZeroWater? Yes, definitely. If you want purified water, ready to drink at home then get yourself a ZeroWater jug and you will be well on your way to ensuring you are keeping hydrated and healthy.
