Z-Pitcher Takes Almost Everything Out of Your Water

For those of you who aren’t lucky enough to live in an area with drinkable tap water, the ZeroWater Z-Pitcher might be worth a look. While other filters leave contaminants such as lead, antibiotics, and perchlorates in your water, the Z-Pitcher uses a filtration system that removes nearly everything.

Chip in a few dollars a month to help support independent cleantech coverage that helps to accelerate the cleantech revolution!

The Z-Pitcher system uses five stages of filtration to remove suspended solids, chlorine, and metals like lead, mercury and chromium.

Each $40 unit is styrofoam and BPA-free and uses 95% recycled materials. ZeroWater is also the first company to offer a recycling program for its filters (both the plastic cartridge and internal resins).

If you want to go the extra mile for water purity, ZeroWater also sells a TDS (total dissolved solids) meter that evaluates the purity of bottled, filtered, tap, and well water. I’d recommend buying the meter in conjunction with the filter unless you have a masochistic need to know just how filthy your water is before drinking it.
