We want to give you a better understanding about the different options available which will help you decide which one is best for your home.
How to Choose the Best Water Filter Jug
Water filters and jugs use a variety of methods to remove impurities from water.
Therefore, firstly we suggest you consider what type of filtration resonates with you and your family.
One of the most common types is carbon filtration.
This type of filtration uses carbon’s porous consistency to absorb water and remove contaminants. It’s especially effective at removing chlorine, pesticides, and solvents.
However, it’s not particularly effective at removing heavy metals, such as nitrates, sodium, and fluorine, water.
Whereas reverse osmosis filtration uses a semipermeable membrane that allows water molecules to pass through it while preventing impurities from passing through.
Reverse osmosis systems use multiple filters, making them effective at removing chemical contaminants like copper and lead and hard metals, such as calcium, arsenic, and mercury. But they will not remove certain herbicides and pesticides.
Moreover, because they use multiple filters, reverse osmosis systems require strong water pressure to force the water through the system’s multiple filters and membranes which may cost you more money in the long run. This is something to consider especially with the energy crisis draining your bank account.
Gravity water filters work by filtering water as it passes through a filter to drop from the upper basin of a pitcher to the lower basin. They include charcoal to filter out harmful chemicals and ion exchange resin that captures heavy metals. The best gravity filters remove contaminants such as lead, chlorine, pesticides, and even heavy metals.
Usually, the best water filters use mixed media filtration systems. These systems use multiple types of filtrations in a single cylinder or container. Filters ranging from gravity pitchers to reverse osmosis systems feature multiple stages to remove different kinds of contaminants.
How do ZeroWater’s unique 5 Stage Water Filters Work?
It is our mission at ZeroWater strive to create the best water filters on the market that are both advanced and affordable.
All of our water filters benefits from our unique and premium ZeroWater filtration system, which combines FIVE sophisticated technologies that work together to remove virtually all dissolved solids from your water.
The result is great-tasting water, straight from the tap, and the only pour-through filter pitcher on the market that’s certified by the NSF to reduce both Lead and Chromium.
Our 5 stage filter system are guaranteed to outperform any other simplistic 2 stage filter on the market such as Brita filters. 2 stage filters only contain Activated Carbon and Ion Exchange Resin, meaning around half of all the dissolved solids will still remain and the taste will not be as pure as what ZeroWater filters can provide. Thus when asking what water filter works best, it is surely the ZeroWater filter as it combines 5 different filtration systems to ensure your drinking water is as PURE tasting as possible!
But how does our 5 stage filtration system work? Good question, lets take a look at the answer:
- Stage 1 – This stage consists of a Coarse Filter Screen which serves to filter out fine particles and sediment.
- Stage 2 – The next stage is a Foam Distributor which disperses the water evenly across the entire width of filter. This efficiently uses the filter medium which increases the filters longevity as well as its ability to remove more contaminants.
- Stage 3 – Multi-layer Activated Carbon & Oxidation Reduction Alloy. The Carbon filters out many different contaminants and improves the taste of your water. The oxidation alloy reduces chlorine and other heavy metals plus, it keeps mould from forming when the filter is moist.
- Stage 4 – Dual Comprehensive Ion Exchange Resin uses negative and positive dual bed ion exchange resin to strip foreign ions from the water molecules and return them to a pure state.
- Stage 5 – Finally, the Ultra-fine Screen & on-woven Membrane Layers remove the last bits of ultra-fine particles.
You NEED a Water Filter that will Improve Your Water Quality and Remove as Many Contaminants as Possible
While your city’s water treatment plant removes many harmful chemicals that can make you ill, they can’t catch everything.
Home filtration systems offer an additional layer of water purification by removing a wide range of contaminants, including:
- Organic compounds
- Harmful heavy metals such as lead and copper
Keep in mind that not all water filters will remove every type of impurity. When shopping for a water filter, pay attention to the kinds of contaminants it can and cannot remove.
Our filters are ‘NSF Certified’ to remove 97% of Lead and 99.9% of Chromium, and they are third party tested to remove: 96% of Mercury, 99% of Uranium, 97% of Asbestos, and 93% of Arsenic, among other many other contaminants which are detailed on our website.
Therefore, by filtering your water it will be purer than regular tap water, making sure your family is as hydrated and healthy.
Our filters are a cheaper, more efficient and more environmentally friendly than bottled water. For example our 6 and 7 cup filters retail at just £24.99, it’s a long term (as it will last up to 150 litres), useful and cost effective investment.
So, in answer to your question “which water filter works best?” we can say with confidence that it is without a doubt the ZeroWater premium 5 stage filtration system!
