ZeroWater -- Review and Giveaway -- ends 2/15/10! CONTEST CLOSED!

CONTEST CLOSED! CONTEST CLOSED!

ZeroWater

I admit, I was fairly skeptical. I didn't expect a water pitcher with a filter to really clean my tap water and improve the taste.

I was wrong!

I opened the box to discover a very visually appealing Cool Blue and White Pitcher



with the accompanying ZeroWater ZT-2 Electronic Water Tester, and Filter Cartridge.


The pitcher is wonderful. Not only is the pitcher quite pretty, it has a snap-on lid to prevent spills, pouring spout and an exclusive in-fridge push button dispenser!
I love the convenience this brings to me!

The directions were simple and written clearly. I had no trouble putting the unit together.

ZeroWater is amazing. I followed the instructions and waited for my first pitcher of clean, filtered water to appear.
I won't have to go out and buy bottled water anymore!
*Happy Dance*
At almost $6.00 per case of water, at 2 cases per week and 52 weeks a year -- that's a savings of a whopping $624.00 per year!


The ZeroWater Pitcher retails for approx. $35.00. That's 6 cases or 3 weeks worth of bottled water!
So, it pays for itself in less than a month! The best part, aside from the purity and great taste, is that it reduces the numbers of plastic bottles going into landfills to last forever.

From the Website: ZeroWater® is the ONLY filtered water that meets FDA definition for purified bottled water.

The ZeroWater Filter was developed in the early 1990's.
As of 2008, ZeroWater holds 4 patents regarding our filters with additional patents pending.


ZeroWater offers the Filter Bottle, Filters, Pitcher, and Accessories.

ZeroWater is deeply concerned about the environment and it's own impact upon it. They encourage their customers to particpate in a Filter Recycling Program through their website.
When you mail in your used filters, you'll receive a $5.00 coupon for a future purchase of ZeroWater filters. How great is that? This company doesn't just talk the talk -- it walks the walk! Refreshing!

You can purchase ZeroWater products at Target (and Target.com), WalMart, Home Depot, and Walgreens!

You may also register your ZeroWater purchases on line at the website and you may be offered the chance to participate in and join the product development team!

The wonderful folks at ZeroWater have generously provided for one lucky Gathering My Roses Reader a ZeroWater Pitcher of their very own!

I learned that each filter is good for 22.5 gallons--but results vary and some found it worked for 30 gallons. I also learned that the TDS meter will tell you when you need to change your filter it will read 006.
Thanks for the chance to win.

I learned that zero water meets the definition of purified bottled water (without all the waste) and that it removes 100% of all detectable dissolved solids-very cool.

2 things I learned:
1) This is "the ONLY filtered water that meets the FDA definition of purified bottled water.*
2) The pitcher includes "one Pitcher, one filter, and one TDS meter." The meter tests the water and gives a digital reading.
