ZeroWater Filter
    #742926 - 08/05/14 02:33 PM (2 years, 4 months ago)

Purchased one and I love it. It filters a gallon and a half in ~15 minutes, and filters EVERYTHING out of it. 0ppm tested with two different ppm meters. I couldn't be more happy with the purchase and now I have 2 back up filters and a steady supply of 0ppm water :grin:
It was about ~$50 for the filter/dispenser and the two back up filters.

If you are having nutrient problems due to a tap water with a high ppm and don't have the money to drop on a RO system, this is an excellent alternative.

I hate to say this man, but I would say it is just a backup. Those filters will get expensive over time. I realize it my work good for people with one or two plants, but long term, you would end up spending more than if you just went and bought an RO machine for your home.

I almost did the exact same thing, but got to thinking about it and read a thread from Magash (I believe) or Harry talking about how tap water is perfectly fine 9 times out of 10.
My PPM is around 150 on just my tap water, so I really don't need to fret much about it anyway.

Not trying to shit on your post man, not at all, just saying that the solution is not as cost effective as it seems. I go through at least 6 gallons of water when I water my flower tent, so it wouldn't be very efficient for time either, but then again I have seen reviews on RO systems that say they take just as long.

Search for the tap water thread, after reading it you might just use that thing for your own drinking water instead of your plants.lol

My tap ppm is 360+, I cannot use my tap water for my plants, it has already caused a significant amount of problems. I agree for a large or even a grow with 6+ plants, this filter would not be cost effective. However, for a very small grow op, I find this filter to be very handy. This filter would really only be ideal for new growers with a very low plant count.

Nice. You can get good drinking water too. I was using collected rain water for a while in soil, but got lazy and mostly used tap water that measures around 190 or maybe 260(I don't know how to use my PPm meter) I started using rain water again, but I should probably get one of those filters like you got since I haven't even been growing as much as I smoke.

I think if you put a bunch of tap water in a bucket and let it sit somewhere it will be much safer to use after a few days.

Sometimes I wonder how mass scale filtration works. I do have a general idea, but if you dumped 1000 lbs of pure chemical death down the toilet, would that mean they have to carry out 1000 lbs of waste at some point? I almost don't want to know.

Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

The solution to pollution is dilution.  That and it depends on what type of chemical you are talking about.  Chlorine is poisonous at certain concentrations, but when diluted out can be beneficial.  1000 gallons of something going into to the sewer system is going to get diluted down an unbelievable amount by the time it hits the treatment plant.  Also keep in mind, the size of city is going to affect that as well. 

But there are also ways to neutralize different dangerous chemicals.  It's not just a matter of removing them.
