Every year, millions of Americans purchase water filters in an effort to improve the quality of their tap water. But with so many different brands and types of water filters on the market, it can be tough to know which one is right for you.

ZeroWater and EpicWater are two popular water filtration pitchers on the market today. Both claim to remove impurities from your water and make it taste great. But which one is right for you?

ZeroWater vs EpicWater: Filtration Systems

Both ZeroWater and EpicWater use multi-stage filtration systems to remove impurities from your water. The ZeroWater system includes a five-layer filter that gets rid of 99.6% of all dissolved solids in your water, including lead, mercury, chlorine, and more.

The EpicWater system also includes a five-layer filter, but it goes a step further by also removing fluoride from your water.

Fluoride is often added to municipal water supplies to help prevent tooth decay, but some people believe that it’s a harmful chemical that should be avoided. If you’re looking to remove fluoride from your water, then the EpicWater pitcher is the way to go.

ZeroWater vs EpicWater: Water Capacity

The ZeroWater pitcher can hold up to 20 cups of water, while the EpicWater pitcher can hold up to 36 cups. If you have a large family or entertain often, then the extra capacity of the EpicWater pitcher may be worth the investment.

If you only need a pitcher for yourself or a small family, then ZeroWater is probably the better choice. But whichever filtration system you choose, be sure to regularly change your water filter to ensure that your water remains clean and healthy.

Other Features of Epic and Zero Water Filters

Ease of Use

When it comes to filtered water, convenience is key. Nobody wants to go through a long, complicated process just to get a glass of clean water. In terms of ease of use, Zero Water wins hands down.

All you have to do is pour tap water into the filtration system and wait for it to filter out all the impurities. With Epic, on the other hand, you have to first insert the filter into the bottom of the pitcher and then fill up the pitcher with tap water.

The process is a bit more involved, but some users prefer being able to see the filtering process take place right before their eyes.

Cost

Both Epic and Zero Water offer affordable filtration systems that will save you money in the long run compared to buying bottled water. However, Zero Water’s replacement filters are slightly cheaper than Epic’s – $19.99 for a pack of three compared to $24.99 for a pack of two. So if cost is your main concern, Zero Water may be the better option.

Both Zero Water and Epic Water filters offer great ways to filter your water and improve its taste and quality.

Filtration Power

Of course, at the end of the day, what really matters is how well each system filters impurities from your tap water. In terms of filtration power, there’s no denying that Zero Water is the clear winner.

Its five-stage filtration system removes 99% of all dissolved solids from your water, whereas Epic’s three-stage filtration system only removes 97% percent.

Conclusion

When it comes to choosing a water filter, there are a lot of factors to consider – ease of use, cost, and filtration power chief among them.

Both Epic Water and ZeroWater offer exceptional filtration at a reasonable price point. It really just depends on your personal preference when it comes to price and filter lifespan.

Whichever system you choose, you can rest assured knowing that you’re making an investment in improving the quality of your tap water.
