There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But I was game; I bought the 8-gallon model, and I waited at the door with a PH meter to tackle the first challenge: would the Zen, in fact, increase the PH of the water? If it didn't, it was going back. If it did, the earned credibility would help me more readily accept the other claims of this water filter system.
The unit arrived in two days and I was already prepared by other reviewers that it takes a little time to tinker the unit together, boil pebbles, scrub the dome, and rinse the 5-compartment mineral stack for 15 minutes. Sure, it's not exactly 'plug and play,' but if this system did what it claimed, it would be worth it.
I then followed the manufacturer's directive to DISCARD THE FIRST TWO FULL TANKS of water that filtered through it. But I cheated, I took a teeny taste of Zen water after the first tank filtered through. Yuck! It tasted like rocks! This was discouraging, but I proceeded with allowing the second tank to filter through. (By the way, this took two days. That's not a complaint; I was already prepared, again by reviewers and the manufacturer that water takes time to filter through the Zen -- about 2 hours per gallon. So with an 8-gallon unit flushed twice at 2 hours a gallon, the math is simple. But this really isn't a problem once you're up and operating: you just start filtering water when you go to bed and you'll have more than you'll need the next morning.)
So, once the Zen had passed two tanks of water through its elements, I tasted from the third batch and.... Wow! Fantastic taste! Just like natural spring water! I was very impressed.
At this point, I pulled the PH meter out from my cowboy holster to challenge, at 'gun point,' Zen's claims of PH improvement. I re-calibrated my PH meter and took a dive. Zen came through with flying colors. My tap water started at PH 7.39. After filtering through the Zen, the water became 8.29. Awesome! I also tested my grocery store's brand of "Purified Water" in a bottle and it tested at 6.57 which is lackluster, especially because it's tasteless.
Beyond the PH triumph, the Zen delivers a lot more. It provides many important minerals. My wife and I have been drinking distilled water for years in our tea and coffee. Reportedly, distilled water is not a good choice for drinking water. There are debates on both sides of the issue, but many will say distilled water leeches minerals from the human body. True or not true, who can say for sure, but why risk it? Another persuasion against continuing with distilled water is that it tested quite low on the PH scale (4.8 before I gave my PH meter a tune-up). Also, it lacks taste as well.
After just two days of drinking Zen water, I could actually feel an amazing improvement overall: more energy and increased mental clarity. Exactly how much water we're supposed to drink each day varies on our weight and activity. However, the most common answer from respectable sources seem to agree: take your weight in pounds, multiply by roughly 2/3 or 67%, and that's how many ounces of water to drink each day.
Meanwhile, I wanted to know exactly what each of the mineral compartments of the Zen System did in specific terms. So, consulting with the Zen people, here's what I found:
- The Ceramic Dome Filter traps contaminants, bacteria, spores, cysts and parasites. It also reduces organic chemicals, pesticides and herbicides.
- Encased Mineral Stones helps preserve purity and freshness of stored water by inhibiting secondary breeding of bacteria.
- Magnetized Water has been reported to increase overall health effects and boost immunity level.
- Removes bad tastes, odor and chlorine. Colloidal Silver incapacitates bacteria.
- lon Exchange Resin softens and purifies water by removing toxins and heavy metals.
- Far Infrared elements help boost strength and vitality, improves memory functions. It’s known to help regulate blood pressure, blood sugar level and hormonal functions.
- Sillica Sand aids in digestion and boosts metabolism, improves circulation and immune system, helps strengthen collagen for radiant skin, shiny hair and stronger nails.
- Mineral Sand and Stones infuse water with micro-nutrient such as calcium, iron, zinc and magnesium.
======= FAST FORWARD >>> Now, two years later, I can tell you that this is one of our top 3 favorite purchases from Amazon! This filter keeps churning out fabulous tasting water! Just be sure to put into your calendar reminders the few prescribed tasks of cleaning the dome and replacing the elements -- the first is not difficult and the second is not expensive. Just be sure to get the replacement elements from the authorized Zen Water Systems website.
With that said, let's look at the good and the bad:
1) There were little plastic fibers, similar to fiber glass or hairlike shavings in the top container of this unit. Lots of them, and they were static clung to the sides. This gave me a bit of anxiety, because I had to clean it very good to make sure I didn't ingest one of these.
2) The sticker on the front was crooked, and had a big crease in it. In my opinion if you are going to place your name brand on something, it should be done with care and put the label on straight and smooth. I could have simply removed it, but I like the Zen Water label so I was able to remove it and place it on squarely (but there is a little bend in the corner still)
3) The filter is no longer like the one in the pictures. They should update their photos so that you are not surprised by this. Different order of hte materials and an exchange of one of them.
4) The unit is VERY slow for the first few days to make water. It was much slower than they said it would be, but it will speed up. Just scrub the white dome well with a clean brush and soak it in water like the instructions say to do. Give it a week and you'll be making water at a very reasonable rate (there are 4 of us here and we drink a lot, probably a gallon or more a day, and the unit has no problem keeping up now)
1) I contacted the company by email and they got right back to me. Very detailed reply, excellent customer service, which to be honest saved this sale. Nice job Zen Water customer service!
2) The spout is awesome. Simply press your glass into it and it dispenses water. If you prefer, you can flip it up to leave it permanently on in case you want to fill something large.
3) It looks nice. I got the 6 gallon model, which I believe stores 4 gallons in the bottom of fresh clean water and holds 2 in the top where it still smells like chlorine from the tap.
4) Most important: THE WATER IS GREAT! No chlorine smell. Nice mineral balanced flavor. It never ceases to amaze me how good this water tastes.
5) Convenience, no more hauling large qualities of water home from the store. Unit sits on my counter and I simply add tap water to the top.
6) Because the water is so good my kids are finally drinking water!
Lastly I would like to compare this to the Brita Water Filtration System UltraMax.
My wife picked up the UltraMax here on Amazon and I bought the Zen Water System. I know it is not a fair comparison since I spend more on the Zen, but there is no comparison on water quality, smell or taste either. The Brita still smelled of chlorine after it filtered it. The taste wasn't terrible, but it wasn't exactly good either. This ZEN system not only removes every hint of chlorine from our water, it also tastes better than any bottled water I have purchased. My wife and kids all agree.
I've had it since March now, and I absolutely love it. I do find that taller glasses and bottles are difficult to fill even when it's sitting on a base, but I just started keeping a 2-cup measuring cup right next to the dispenser. It's great to be able to make a pot of soup or noodles and have enough filtered water on hand to use. Today I scrubbed the reusable ceramic prefilter for the second time, and this time I took some pictures. The gunk that it caught in just three to four weeks is ridiculous, but I'm so glad that it was caught on the filter and didn't end up in my water. I'm also glad that it does have a ceramic filter that's reusable and washable, I would go broke replacing the main filter if it went straight into it. Overall, I love it and definitely recommend it.
