ZeroWater ZP-006 6-Cup Space SaverPitcher Water Filter

The ZeroWater ZP-006 6-Cup Space Saver Pitcher Water Filter is a water filtration product that, though it comes in a little package, delivers quality results not unlike those of its bigger counterparts. Because of its size, this is water bottle in pitcher form -- and very effective in giving clean and fresh filtered water. Get more details of the ZeroWater ZP-006 6-Cup Space Saver Pitcher Water Filter.

Since this is a ZeroWater product, you’d get the patented 5-stage dual-ion exchange technology that is the cornerstone of ZeroWater’s filter systems. This filtration process is more efficient in removing water contaminants than carbon filters. The innovation virtually eliminates all dissolved solids in ordinary tap water. If you want more guarantee than this, then you’d be happy to know that the technology was tested by the Water Quality Association and the NSF International, and was given the certification for its ability to remove many known water-borne mineral contaminants. In fact, ZeroWater’s water filtration technology is the only system that falls into the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) definition of what purified bottle water is!  

Every filter that comes with your pitcher water filter is a lean, mean, hardworking little machine. Even these filters are NSF-certified for NSF/ANSI Standard 42 for materials requirements. The pitcher can be fitted with any kind of these filters. The shape of the original filter that ships with this pitcher is narrow at the bottom. But according to ZeroWater, even the filters from their larger pitchers can fit in this one, too. This one-size-fits-all lessens the hassle when it’s time to replace the filter.

How often will you need to change the filter in your pitcher? That greatly depends on your water consumption and the quality of the water in your location. A single person will probably use the filter for 5-6 months before it has to be changed.

The pitcher water filter comes with a filter change indicator or TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) Meter – a convenient feature that will notify you when it is time to change the filter. It is LED-lit. Unlike other filter meters that give a digital readout, this tiny stick just flash red to inform you that the filter needs to be changed. Also, it is not attached to the pitcher itself. Instead, you need to dip it in the filtered water and if it lights up, then you have to do a filter change. If it doesn’t light up, then that means the filter is still okay.

What happens if you get the red light and don’t change the filter? The water will begin to taste sour or sometimes acidic. Some customers report a fishy smell that is probably caused by the failure of the ion-exchange filter to process impurities successfully.

There is a reason why the ZeroWater ZP-006 6-Cup Space Saver Pitcher Water Filter is called a space saver. The pitcher’s chamber holds only 6 cups of water at one time. That’s less than a liter of water. The pitcher’s dimension is also space-saving in design at only 10”x4.875”x9.625”. It is not bulky and can fit really well inside even tiny refrigerators.

The body of the ZeroWater ZP-006 Pitcher Water Filter is made of BPA-free plastic. The visual style is simple and it looks great on counter tops and even bedside tables. The filter occupies a large space in the center of the pitcher. To clean the pitcher, just wash thoroughly with soap and rinse in warm water. Cleaning it in a dishwasher is not necessary.

It will only take a short time to filter a newly-filled pitcher. You open the top lid, fill it with water, then gravity goes to work. After some time, clean purified water will trickle into the separate chamber at the bottom.

The bottom line is: the ZeroWater ZP-006 Pitcher Water Filter is a cute little pitcher that could easily fit into a small space in the fridge, bedside table, or the kitchen. It is small enough that you can bring it when you travel. Because of its size you can now forget using bottled water altogether, and in the process you lend the environment a helping hand.
