Americans’ number one environmental concern is the pollution of drinking water, with 59 percent saying they worry “a great deal” about the issue, according to a 2009 Gallup Environment survey.
Given the essential nature of water to sustaining life, it is not surprising that the safety of drinking water is top of mind for Americans. From potential contaminants and disturbances in the water system, to untested well water, to less stringent requirements for bottled water vs. tap water, there are many potential worries.
I live in a city that puts quite a bit of chlorine into the town water. My husband drinks it, but I refuse to even cook with it because I know the risks of drinking chlorinated water. I’ve been buying bottled water since moving here, but after that got quite costly, I began using a Brita filter. I was never crazy with the resulting flavor though…
So I was ultra excited when Restore “Taste The Clean” Launch Team asked me if I would be willing to test and review their new Restore Clean Water System.
Restore Clean Water System is a brand new, state-of-the art and innovative in-home water purification system that combines filtration and UV Clean Technology.
Just because its filtered, doesn’t means it’s purified! Restore Clean Water System uses Ultraviolet (UV) Clean Technology to go beyond filtering by removing bacteria, viruses and more.
Restore is California certified for microbiological water purification, a first for a water pitcher utilizing UV technology and is Gold Seal Certified to National Sanitation Foundation standards by the Water Quality Association. UV Technology has been used for over 60 years for its germicidal properties in hospitals and laboratories. For the first time, an application of this unique germ-killing technology is available for home use in an affordable, easy to use water pitcher.
I thought it would be complicated to use when I opened the box, but it was actually pretty simple to set up. You flip the switch on the handle to “Fill”, then proceed to fill the basin with tap water. Let the water run through the carbon filter (much like the Brita) and then fill it up again. Once that goes through (takes like 3 mins), flip the switch on the handle to “Purify” and plug the wall unit into the pitcher and press the “Purify” button.
The system is incredibly easy to use and clean. Best of all, the flavor of the water after it has been purified is wonderful. I don’t usually like drinking water because it’s so… bland. Distilled water has an unmistakable icky flavor and spring water can taste funny sometimes too.
This water tastes incredibly clean and crisp. I actually find myself wanting to pour myself a glass of water now. That in itself is a little miracle.
If your tap water is less than perfect, I recommend you get a water filtration and purification system like Restore Clean Water System.
The system retails for $99 and new replacements filters for the system are only $7.99. *Note: Restore is not for sale in Iowa.
