Zuvo™ Water LLC is a global innovator of chemical-free water products. Zuvo’s product portfolio is based on a patented technology platform that reproduces the photo-oxidation process that naturally occurs in the environment.
Zuvo practices sustainable design to keep products in use longer, thereby reducing their impact on the environment and keeping them out of an already crowded waste stream. Their goal is to innovate with the environment in mind, using materials and methods that minimize the use of energy, optimize recycling, and reduce the cost of transportation. Zuvo is on a quest to reduce the impact of plastic water bottles on the planet and hopes to provide healthy water for the world by donating all profits on the sale of our stainless steel water bottles to the Hippo Water Roller Project.
Some important info I found on the website:
How does Zuvo compare to Brita, Pur, or charcoal filtration systems?
These products don’t have the capacity to reduce non-pathogenic microorganisms, which are present in tap water everywhere. Although they’re not associated with infectious diseases, they can dramatically alter the taste, odor, and color of tap water.
Zuvo’s combination of UV and ozone reduces these microbes, leaving tap water tasting and looking naturally fresh and clean. They also inhibit and prevent the growth of non-harmful but aesthetically unpleasant biofilms within the filter itself — which pitcher filters like Brita and Pur cannot effectively do.
And now Zuvo Water is introducing its new Zuvo 150 Water Filtration System. Priced at less than $150 — a fraction of other automated water filtration systems — this is the low-cost high-volume easy to install home water filtration system that everyone has been waiting for! It’s elegantly designed, high tech and easy to use.
Some quick facts about the Zuvo 150 Water Filtration System
- Easily installed above counter to a standard (threaded) faucet or under-counter connected directly to a Zuvo Beverage Faucet
- Uses 8w UV bulb; requires less energy than a toaster
- ½ gallon-per-minute flow rate
- Filter life of 400 gallons
- Retails at $149.99
As a mom, I am concerned about the quality of my children’s drinking water. Our fridge has a water filter in it and it has been the main source of water for quite some time. I have never been real certain how well that filter worked, I just had blind trust. When Zuvo agreed to a review I was excited to try it. Why? The new Zuvo Water Filtration System provides cleaner and healthier water direct from your tap that leaves no carbon footprint. You can actually see it working!
The Zuvo arrives fully assembled and ready to install. If using a regular faucet, installation consists of unscrewing your aerator and screwing the new one on… then plug it in! Easy peasy! We had to install the Zuvo under the cabinet because we have a pull-out faucet. Installation was still fairly simple and not too time consuming… just a few extra steps.
After running the Zuvo for five minutes we were treated to fresh, clean water directly from our tap. You can hear the Zuvo turn on (and if watching, you can see it turn blue and the bubbles spinning) when you flip the water switch.
We have been enjoying the Zuvo for a couple of weeks now and there are a few things in particular that we like. My husband prefers water that hasn’t been cooled, especially after running. He says he can drink it faster. Coming from the fridge, it’s too cold. I can taste (and smell) the difference between the fridge water and the Zuvo. Zuvo water has a “fresh” smell to it. The kids like that it flows quicker from the Zuvo than the fridge. Overall, I think the entire family likes it much better for their own reasons. My main reason, and most important, is that I know my children have clean drinking water free from microbes (eew).
