BENSALEM, Pa., Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ZeroWater, the only water filtration system on the market that removes 99.6% of total dissolved solids, was recently tested against other pitcher water filtration systems by NaturalNews.com and was one of two consumer filters out of the seven positively recommended for heavy metal reduction. Other filtration systems which could not garner a recommendation include Brita and Pur.
Among the elements tested by Natural News.com (using ICP-MS instrumentation) Aluminum, Copper, Arsenic, Cadmium, Cesium, Mercury, Lead, Uranium, and Strontium, ZeroWater was the only filter that removed 100% of Aluminum and overall had the highest ratings of removal on all metals and elements.

"What shocked me the most about the results of this testing is just how poorly most water filters performed on the removal of toxic heavy metals," says Mike Adams, Health Ranger of NaturalNews.com. "Most of the water filters we tested were entirely unsatisfactory in terms of heavy metals removal, in my informed view. Only two filters showed results which I would consider to be sufficient. Most filters also appeared to perform very poorly for removal of elements with radioactive isotopes (uranium, cesium, strontium)."
ZeroWater's product line includes pitchers ranging from a 6-cup to 23-Cup including the first gravity-fed portable Tumbler. All products employ a patented 5-stage Ion-Exchange filter which guarantees to remove virtually all dissolved solids from tap water. ZeroWater is the only filtered water that meets the Food and Drug Administration's requirements for Total Dissolved Solids in purified bottled water. ZeroWater is available at select retailers across the US and Canada. www.zerowater.com
Zero Technologies, LLC developed the ZeroWater Filtration System with the mission of delivering the best filtration possible to consumers through its patented 5-stage ion exchange filter which removes virtually all total dissolved solids (TDS). No other filter pitcher or dispenser can make this claim. ZeroWater is the only gravity-fed filtration system to match the TDS levels found in Purified Bottled Water. To date, the breakthrough ZeroWater filter has received certifications by NSF International and the Water Quality Association for the removal of copper, iron, zinc, aluminum, lead, chromium, mercury, chlorine and hydrogen sulfide. In addition, Good Housekeeping Research Institute findings reveal that ZeroWater filters remove more pharmaceuticals and chemicals than Brita and PUR.
