I bought the pitcher and filter and in the beginning it was fine then I got the lemon water taste.Now the last 2 filters are leaking black particles and some yellow material.

I won't buy another the filters are too expensive for this type of problem. I never had the different readings on the test meter that some had. I use to use the Pur water filter I switched to Zero Water because it sounded better and in the beginning it was better.

The first filter I had no problems with the rest turned out to be garbage.So makes the best water filter???

I live in Bergen County. My TDS is 300-400.

If I use a Zero Water filter straight from tap it lasts 2-3 weeks.

I have a cheap tap filter, from there a cheap pitcher filter. That goes into my Zero Water and the filter lasts 5-6 weeks.

Since my posting on Jan.31, 2015; I have tried to get an answer to my qurie on "filters" instead of "purifiers" answer from ZERO water!

I now believe that I was scamed by ZEROWATER.Will not buy this product anymore...btw ZEROWATER...your customer relations suck!

We too have had filters with the little gritty pebbles in our water loading tray accompanied by a yellow waxy substance at the filters top!ALSO; u folks are using the term "filter" for your product that U used to label PURIFIER---world of difference in efficiency between both!

Why are u not still classifying this as a purifier and not a filter?

U also eliminated the spigot located at the bottom of the water jug!Why?


I am having the same problem! First and second filter great but this one.....

Are you sure the black particles are coming from the Zero filter? I was using a Brita filter and I would always find those black particles but just assumed it was debris from my plumbing.

Never had anything but Zero it now classified as a "filter" instead of a "purifier" of difference in removing bad stuff from city water!
