I drink tons of water. Maybe not as much as I should, but I drink a great deal of it nonetheless. That's why I was so thrilled when I was presented with the opportunity review the The Zuvo™ Water Filtration System
The Zuvo hooks up to your tap either above or under the sink. In my case, I opted to place the Zuvo above the sink.
The Zuvo Water Filtration System uses a patented five-step process to produce clean, healthy, great-tasting water just the way nature intended and here's how it works:
Step 1: Ozonation
In nature, ozone is generated by lightning and cleans the air where rainwater forms. The Zuvo Water Purator mixes ozone with incoming tap water to treat taste and odor contaminants and improve taste. Like chlorine, ozone is a powerful oxidizer. Unlike chlorine, ozone leaves no chemical residue.
Step 2: Ultraviolet Light
The ozone saturated water is flooded with high-intensity UV light – the same as the solar energy that cleans water in the upper atmosphere.
Step 3: Photo-oxidation
The Zuvo Water Purator combines UV and ozone in a patented process known as photo-oxidation which releases powerful oxidizers to further treat the water.
Step 4: filtration with lead removal
Pure spring water is created by passing through fine particles in the earth. Zuvo uses the same principle by passing water through a Class 1 Particulate Reduction Filter, reducing chlorine taste and odor, lead, and tiny particulates.
Step 5: post-filtration UV
The filtered water is again exposed to high-intensity UV light as it leaves the Zuvo Water Purator, ensuring that you get clean, healthy, great tasting water…just the way nature intended!” (Zuvo website)
The Zuvo provides clean and pure tasting filtered tap water that I love. It tastes much purer than bottled water and I love that I can get it ice cold right away.
Over the course of a few years, I know the Zuvo will save me hundreds of dollars since I won't have to buy bottled water anymore. At $149.99, I know that my Zuvo will pay for itself in no time. I also love that it has influenced me to drink more water and it has also helped with my dog's tear stains since our water is so clean now. I definitely recommend the Zuvo Water Filtration System!
