We have recently been trying out the ZeroWater filter jug. I was sent the 12 cup jug, which is the first in its class to benefit from a sealed lid and reservoir which allows filtered water to be poured while water which hasn’t yet been filtered remains in the reservoir. This adds a further 2 cups of capacity to the 10 cups of filtered water in the jug. It also features a one-handed, pull and pour button spout for easy pouring from the fridge or for filling bottles.

Unlike other leading water filter jugs, ZeroWater benefits from a patented, 5-stage Ion Exchange Filtration system which removes virtually all dissolved solids from your water. This provides great tasting water without the dissolved solids which may include Minerals, Salts, Metals, Chemicals and Runoff.

Moreover, it reduces 99% of all Fluoride and other in-organics, such as Nitrates, from your water. It is the only filter certified to remove both lead and chromium.

Four additional stages of water filtration ensure larger particles and other contaminants are removed, ensuring the filter delivers a “000” reading on the included laboratory-grade water quality meter.

Most tap water in the UK falls into the range of 051-200. D has always said since moving to France, that he thinks there is more lead in the water which is why so many people buy bottled water here and it was very interesting to find out that our water actually had a reading of 238 so it is higher than we are used to in the UK. The information that I received with the jug said that levels over 201-300 is high contaminant level and expect slightly lower capacity of the filter. When I took a reading of my filter water, it read at 080 so I thought this was due to being highly contaminated water, however when I was looking at the jug, I realised I hadn’t screwed the filter properly and some was leaking through the top. I re did the filter, ensuring it was sealed all around the edges and retested. The result was 000! The filter has completely removed the lead, chromium and other impurities, even from highly contaminated levels.

The water looks and tastes clean and fresh. I am really impressed with the jug and it has put my mind at rest about the amount of lead that Lucas is drinking. It’s great for those wanting to be more eco friendly and cut buying bottles of water at the shop. You now can have safe water at home to pour into a bottle to take out with you.


Getting fresh water with the ZeroWater filter jug

  1. I like that it has a little tap so that the young ones can use it too without the fear of lifting and spilling the entire jug because of its weight. I was actually looking for a water filter jug for my home.

  2. The tap is a really cool feature as I do find jugs like this can be quite heavy when they’re full so it would stop any potential spills x

  3. Having a good water filter is so important as buying bottled water can be expensive in the long run. So glad you son enjoyed the water and hope this encourages him to drink more of it

  4. Love the dispensing tap idea. Looks like this is something kids would enjoy which then makes them drink more water. I don’t have a filter tap and always say I will. Will have to look into this one

  5. This is such a good idea. I am always looking for new ways to drink more water, I always carry around a small water bottle with me but can’t always get anywhere to refill. This is much better for the environment too!
