Not resolved

I've had a zero water pitcher for over year. I've never had to change the filter and my water which comes from a Creek is clean and delicious.

When my grandson was born I bought a table top "zero water" for my daughter to use for his formula. A few weeks ago the baby started getting flu symptoms with vomiting and diarrhea. While visiting I tasted the water from my daughters zero water pitcher and almost threw up. not only was the water acrid and bitter it tasted as though I was drinking from a filthy fish tank.

The smell was horrendous. I wrapped the filter in two plastic bags to mute the odor. I'm going to take this to a lab and have it tested. in the mean time my infant grandson is being tested for Giardia and other water borne illnesses.

Zero water company is going to hear from me...oh you bet!

In the mean time I urge everyone not to use this to filter water for infants. the results could be tragic.

Review about: Zerowater Water Filter.

Reason of review: Dangerous for infants.

Monetary Loss: $40.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

I liked: Babe my infant grandson sick.

I didn't like: Poor quality of filters that may contain unsafe organisms.

I have a new electric kettle in which I boil water from the zero water pitcher. I have been noticing that the lid is difficult to remove and I have to force it down to close it.

The kettle is electric and is used on a table so the substance is not grease from frying.The waxy substance/film is also on the inside. I washed it with soap and a rough scotch-brite and the stuff remains.

I then washer it with "Awesome" which is a degreaser and it still remains.My theory is that something in the water reacts to the heat and clings to the metal. I am concerned about what that can be doing to me internally.



WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?That's your freaking child. You need to SERIOUSLY check that. Filters don't last forever.

You need to stay on top of that. And the fact that it smelled that bad and ONLY NOTICED IT AFTER YOUR BABY GOT SICK seriously concerns me.


I am curious after a month of use my zero water is 368. I never got the 006 code to change the filter.

my water started at 589 and did test 000. please advise

006 isn't a code, they're saying that you should replace it when it gets over 6. I'd wait until 10 or 15 though.
