ZeroWater 5-Stage Water Filter Jug with Free TDS Meter 1.7L
Product number: 73247
A jug that filters your tap water to remove dissolved impurities may sound like nothing new, but ZeroWater’s Water Purifying Jug has innovative 5-stage filter technology that removes virtually all impurities from your tap water, to provide the purest-tasting drink possible and complete peace of mind – something that no other domestic filter jug can claim.
What does it remove?
With ZeroWater, you can be sure you’re only drinking pure, unadulterated H2O because it’s proven to make tap water as pure as the most expensively bottled filtered water brands. The 5-stage filter removes virtually all ‘total dissolved solids’ from potable drinking water, including heavy metals such as lead (99.2%) and mercury (99.4%) as well as chemical compounds like nitrates and chlorine, and any added fluoride. Which is especially good news if you have ancient plumbing in your neighbourhood with lead pipes carrying your supply, as using this superb filtration system means you can rest assured that none of the nasties are going to make it into your drinking water.
Effective 5-stage filtration process
The five-stage filtration system might seem very slow if you stand and watch it, but all good things come to those who wait! And the patented Ready-Pour lidded jug allows you to decant already filtered water while the filter is still processing what you’ve poured in at the top, so you don’t have to wait until it’s finished to benefit from the filtration.
The five stages of filtration
Once you’ve poured your water in, the filter gets to work:
- Stage 1: Coarse filter screen – removes fine particles and sediment.
- Stage 2: Foam distributor – spreads water across the whole filter for more effective removal.
- Stage 3: Multi-layer filtration – with activated carbon to filter out contaminants and an oxidation alloy to remove chlorine and heavy metals.
- Stage 4: Dual ion exchange resin – strips foreign ions from water molecules.
- Stage 5: Ultra-fine screen and non-woven membrane layers – remove remaining ultra-fine particles.
Test the quality
Filtered water might look the same before and after filtering, but test the level of contaminants using the included laboratory-grade digital water quality meter and you’ll immediately see the difference. And when your filter’s coming towards the end of its life (the water starts to taste a little lemony), you can also use the meter to test the filtered water to confirm whether the filter needs changing.
How long does each filter last?
Each filter will turn up to 150 litres of tap water into ZeroWater, but this depends on the original quality of your tap water and the amount of dissolved solids, so they will last longer in soft water areas.
Helpful tip: if the filtered water starts to taste a little bitter, as if you’ve added lemon juice, it’s probably time to change your filter. Try to remember to check the levels with your FREE digital water meter every time you use the jug, so you are forewarned when the filters become less efficient. Once it’s over 006 it has expired and needs replacing.
Reduce plastic waste
Rather than buying bottles of purified water, fill your reusable travel bottle with water filtered through ZeroWater – not only will you be able to enjoy the filtered water you want, but you won’t have to throw away plastic bottle after plastic bottle.
Our tester says…
We gave one of the jugs to Alison from our Finance Department, who told us “I’ll never go back to bottled water having tried the ZeroWater Jug!” She says the taste difference between tap and filtered water is phenomenal – she’s tested this on friends and family too – and she really likes the feel-good factor of knowing she’s no longer contributing to the world’s plastic bottle problem. She loves the ZeroWater system so much that she regularly takes the office sample with her to her static caravan, and we think we may have to fight her to get it back…

ZeroWater is the only gravity-fed water filtration system to match the purity of the very best filtered and bottled water, by capturing 99.6% of total dissolved solids, including residual minerals that can be prevalent in regional groundwater and run-off compounds that may leach into water supplies, especially after heavy rainfall. This breakthrough filtration system is certified by NSF International* to remove lead and other heavy metals, while The Good Housekeeping Research Institute recognise that ZeroWater removes more total contaminants than other brands of water filter.
*NSF International are an independent organisation, internationally recognised as experts in public health and safety issues and as their testing processes are extremely rigorous, gaining certification from them is highly prized.
