{Zuvo 150 Water Filtration System} + Giveaway

I love anything that reduces potentially unhealthy contaminants in my family's drinking water without compromising great taste. And that is why i love Zuvo. I was thrilled to review Zuvo last year and told you how much i love it! Well we are still love using it in our home and our water has never tasted better. According to the company, The Zuvo Purator, uses a five step process that consists of ozonation, UV Light Exposure, photo oxidation, carbon filtration, and dual-pass UV. I don’t pretend to understand the details of all that, but what I do understand is the great taste of the water that comes out.


When it comes to the water that my family drinks, I am concerned about the quality, the cost, and the impact on the environment. Zuvo passes the test in all three areas. The super low price for the Zuvo 150 Water Filtration System is 149.99 , but overtime, it works out to be cheaper than buying bottled water (I didn’t do the math on that one, but you can see the cost breakdown per year on the Zuvo website). As far as quality, it tastes great. And I love the fact that we are not using all of those plastic water bottles anymore!
And now Zuvo Water (www.zuvowater.com) 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!

Tap water safety is a number one concern for our health and fitness. This year, the President’s Anti-Cancer Panel specifically recommended home water filtration for tap water. The Zuvo Water Filtration System makes tap water safer and more delicious for the whole family to drink… and, unlike pitcher water systems, offers UNLIMITED fresh water!

Now the entire family can enjoy all the clean fresh water they want all year round.

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!



Step 1: Ozonation

In nature, ozone is generated by lightning and cleans the air where rainwater forms. 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.


Step 2: Ultraviolet Light

The ozone saturated water is flooded with high-intensity UV light - the same as the solar energy that cleans water in the upper atmosphere.



Step 3: Photo-oxidation

The Zuvo Water Purator combines UV and ozone in a patented process known as photo-oxidation which releases powerful oxidizers to further treat the water.


Step 4: filtration with lead removal

Pure spring water is created by passing through fine particles in the earth. Zuvo uses the same principle by passing water through a Class 1 Particulate Reduction Filter, reducing chlorine taste and odor, lead, and tiny particulates.


Step 5: post-filtration UV

The filtered water is again exposed to high-intensity UV light as it leaves the Zuvo Water Purator, ensuring that you get clean, healthy, great tasting water...just the way nature intended! 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

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. We'd be happy to send you a sample to try out for yourself.
