ZeroWater 23-Cup Water Dispenser and Filtration System Review

ZeroWater 23-Cup Water Dispenser and Filtration System Review

Hi Guys, today I’m reviewing the Zero Water 23 cup Dispenser. It’s 10.5 inches tall by 15 inches long and 6 inches wide.
Link to ZeroWater 23 Cup Dispenser:
The Zerowater zd-018 23-cup water dispenser and filtration system comes with the 23 cup container, lid, reservoir, filter, tds meter and instruction manual. The plastic is bpa free.

Link to Brita 10 Cup Everyday Pitcher:

The Tds meter tells you what’s in your water, it measures dissolved solids in water. This filter and has a five stage filtering system versus the standard 2-stage carbon filters that goes into a brita for example. This filter should remove all dissolved solids in your water. How does the filter work – according to ZeroWater – When water passes through the ion exchange filters, the ions that you may not want in the water or may make the water taste bad are collected and exchanged with water ions, like hydrogen.
When the tds meter reads 006, it’s time to change the filter. How long the filter lasts depends on the tds level of your water. An average tds level of 150-200 should give you about 30 gallons of water. The lower the tds level, the longer your filter will last.
The filters can be recycled by mailing them to Zerowater. Here is a link to that information:

Remove the cap, Push the on/off button to turn on, put the meter in your water no more than an inch or two deep because it could damage the meter, it’s not waterproof. When the reading stabilizes, press hold to keep the reading displayed. Press hold again to go back to 0. Shake it off and test again. Push the button to turn off.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) establishes standards for drinking water which fall into two categories — Primary Standards and Secondary Standards. primary Standards are based on health considerations and Secondary Standards are based on taste, odor, color, corrosivity, foaming, and staining properties of water. There is no Primary drinking water standard for total dissolved solids, but the Secondary standard for TDS is 500 mg/L.

You can buy a Reverse Osmosis testing package online if you’re really concerned with what’s in your water.

I preferred the taste of the Brita water as it was not bitter like the ZeroWater filtered water.

DIY water filtration system for camping/ hiking

Alternative to more expensive water filter systems that are hand crank/pump.
Hanger 9 Ultimate fuel pump
Sawyer Mini filter
Silicone tubing

Output would increase with a larger diameter output tube. I am going to replace it with the same larger yellow tubing I bought for the “dirty” end
Still only about 60 seconds for a liter.

How to install an undersink water filter

How to install an undersink water filter

Greg show how to install an unde rsink water filter and a dedicated spigot near the sink.

Please rate and comment on this video.

This video shows every step in the installation: Where to place the spigot, drilling through the granite countertop, mounting the filter, and the use of both a push fitting and a ferrule ring fitting to join water supply tube ends.
We use a Body Glove filter for this installation, which provides some advantages over a reverse-osmosis system, although as with any filter system, it does not “purify” the water as completely as an RO system. However, the filter system is less expensive, does not produce waste water in the filtering process, and filters on demand – thus providing no opportunity for pre-filtered water to become “stale.”
Also see the video on How to Replace an Angle Stop (shut off valve) which was done in preparation for the water filter installation:

Build a Basic Grey Water Filter System- Part 1

Build a Basic Grey Water Filter System- Part 1

The grey water filter system was hatched from a late night fix of a blocked, groundwater pipe. This pipe, which has been in use for 30 years, was 3″ in diameter and made from PVC. It’s job was to move ground water from the front of the cabin (uphill) and empty to the back (downhill). Found out It was plugged up with dirt and ice from a cold snap. The plug had occurred at the section where the ABS greywater/sink pipe intersects with the PVC ground water pipe. Lucky for me, the 3″ PVC pipe was not cracked and the Y connector had just wiggled loose. The only set back was that the ABS drain pipe was firmly connected to the Y connector of the PVC pipe. It made it next to impossible to remove the Y connector, clean the joint and re-apply the PVC glue. So, I decided to re-root the ABS and plumb in a separate direction. The best bet was to run it parallel with the 3″ PVC, through the back wall, underground for 20 feet, to a small 5 gallon water bucket. The bucket would be filled with gravel and the soapy water would flow into it and slow disperse into the ground. The gravel should function as a basic filter system. In time, the plan is to upgrade this basic system. It was just something whipped up in a few hours and get us through the winter.…
