Zuvo Water Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! So my next review is for Zuvo Water. As the website says: "The Zuvo Water Purator replicates nature's water-cleansing process, reducing contaminants while preserving your water's natural and healthy mineral content."



Not going to lie, when I received this huge cylinder, pretty reminiscent of the Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles 2 Ooze Canisters, I was pretty intimidated. It looks pretty complicated to set up and then you read the instructions, and you relax, because actually it's fairly easy to set up.

My dad actually set it up for me and we put it in the kitchen sink. It took him 10 minutes, tops, to set up. It comes with it's own set of tubes and you screw this little faucet thing under your faucet spout. The faucet piece has a little pin that you pull out when you want to use the filtered water and push back in when you're done using the filtered water. You can only use cold fitered water though, no warm water. One negative about it is when you turn off the faucet after using it the faucet drips for a bit, I guess because there's some excess water in the tubes. But other than that it works perfectly.

It's actually pretty cool to watch, too. When you pull the pin out the Zuvo Water cylinder lights up in a blue ultraviolet light so you can actually see the water being filtered.



Once the water is filtered it looks a little foggy but that's because all the bubbles haven't settled yet. But the water tastes fine. Delicious and refreshing!

For the New Year, 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.

Zuvo is not only good for you but good for your wallet and for the environment too. You get healthy water for only $.06/gallon versus $.20/gallon for pitcher water and over $1.00/gallon for bottled water. 60 million plastic water bottles that end up in our landfills every year, by using Zuvo and using filtere tap water instead of bottles, you help make that number decrease a little less.

Definitely check out Zuvo Water, it's a great water filtration system also a great and charitable company. It donates 5% of it's products' earnings to communities around the world that do not have portable drinking water. They even sell a stainless water bottle for $9.95 where all proceeds of that bottle go to the Hippo Roller Project.

Buy It! Head on over to Zuvo Water's website to buy an awesome filtration system for your own or one of those great stainless steel water bottles, or both! You won't be disappointed!

Win It! ONE winner will receive a Zuvo 150 Filtration System!
