Ready Read Jug, ZeroWater

Are you looking for a way to improve the taste and quality of your tap water? If so, you need to check out the new ZeroWater Ready Read Jug.

The ZeroWater Ready Read Jug is the first water filter jug with a built-in TDS meter. This means that you can easily see how much Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are in your tap water before and after filtering. TDS is a measure of the minerals and other substances that are dissolved in water.

UK tap water is generally considered to be safe to drink, but it can have a high TDS level. This is because UK tap water is treated with a variety of chemicals, including chlorine, fluoride, and lead. These chemicals can give tap water a bitter taste and can also be harmful to your health.

ZeroWater is a great way to improve the taste and quality of your tap water. It’s also a great way to protect your health from harmful contaminants.

Alternatively, their milk and dark chocolate buttons are available in a handy whopping glass Kilner jar – The neck of this jar is carefully designed to ration the speed of your giant button delivery… fast or very fast!
