Pure, great tasting tap water is possible!



With all the news about the safety of our water, who hasn't thought twice before taking a drink from the tap? You won't have to with ZeroWater's 10-cup Filter Pitcher, which features ZeroWater's patented ion exchange filter, which removes virtually all dissolved solids from tap water including Aluminum, Lead, Chromium, Zinc, Nitrate and more. As well as its TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) meters. The TDS meter measures the presence of things such as the metal and flouride in your water. It meets the Food and Drug Administration's definition of purified bottled water and is the only filtered water system that does! A testing of the local tap water gave a reading on TDS meter of 640, while a test of the ZeroWater achevied a reading of 000. The water literally tastes different, just like bottled water! You'll find the 10-cup pitcher exclusively at Bed Bath & Beyond for $37.99, Zerowater.com.
