2010 Holiday Gift Guide: Zuvo 150 Water Filtration System Review & Giveaway


I love to drink water but hate the tap water in our city.  It has a heavy chlorine taste and smell that I can not stand.  I have to rinse all my drinking glasses after they go through the dishwasher so that they do not have the residual taste.  For this reason we have always had some type of water filtration system in our kitchen.  We started with the faucet mount type but when we remodeled it would not work with the faucet I picked out and I was tired of buying the filters.

About Zuvo Water
Zuvo™ Water LLC is a global innovator of chemical-free water treatment products. Our product
portfolio of unique consumer and industrial water treatment systems is based on a patented
technology platform that reproduces the photo-oxidation process naturally occurring in the
environment. Headquartered in Mountain View, CA, Zuvo Water LLC works with global partners
— from government entities to multi-national corporations — to introduce exciting new
technologies and products to the water marketplace.

About 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


 What It Does
Zuvo’s UV/Ozone filtration system reproduces nature’s photo-oxidation cleansing process, filtering impurities and reduces microorganisms, while preserving your water’s natural and healthy mineral content and adding fresh oxygen, giving it a delicious “pop”.  It’s this “something extra” that makes users choose Zuvo over ordinary tap or bottled water every time! 


Why Zuvo?  More Fun Facts
Better for your Health
Unlimited clean water… a godsend for people who live in “bad water areas” or are forced to drink well water.  And see what Mother Nature Network says about us!
Better for your Wallet
Because Zuvo produces unlimited clean water, you get healthy water for only $.06/gallon versus $.20/gallon for pitcher water and over $1.00/gallon for bottled water.
Better for the Planet
With Zuvo, you can make a difference by not adding to the more than 60 million plastic water bottles that end up in our landfills every year

Zuvo is telegenic and visually fascinating to watch; once it's plugged in, you see the water bubbling in a blue UV light and getting cleaner before your very eyes.

Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts
My husband claimed dibbs on the Zuvo the minute it arrived on the doorstep.  He swiped it and put it in his bathroom.  Since i have a filter system in my kitchen, I did not fight him on it.   Since he laid claim to it, I made him hook it up.  I would have tried hooking it up if I know it would be that easy, it took him less than 5 minutes.  We all gathered around the Zuvo 150 water filtration system to watch it start (I heard it was pretty cool when first started).  It was so fun to watch it, the water swirls around the blue light until it is full and then you run it for a few minuted to prime the system.  The water tastes great, there is no chlorine taste.  It tastes clean and fresh.  It tastes like, well, nothing and it is amazing.  Now I wish I had fought a little harder to have it in my bathroom.  I sneak in to his bathroom when he has left for work to use it to brush my teeth, they feel so squeaky clean (and the light is so fun to watch!)
Zuvo water filtration systems can be purchased at Zuvowater.com, Amazon.com, and other online shops.  It can also be purchased at local Ferguson shops.

Dave said...

My favorite feature is that 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. My parents have well water and the taste is always a little off to me. Thank you for the great give-away.

Some of the features I like about Zuvo Water Purator is that it takes out chlorine and lead in the water, and that the tubing used in the diverter assembly both BPA and Pthalate free and the device does not impart any known harmful chemicals into the water.
