*You can receive a discount coupon for Zero Water Filters to remove lead from drinking water here.
*Zero Water filter pitchers provide a reading of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in your drinking water. This is not a reading of the lead level in your drinking water. To read more about TDS, visit Zero Water’s website.
We also provide free lead test kit for your home. If your test comes back with elevated lead levels, we will send you a Zero Water filter free of cost.
Lead test kits are available to residential PWSA water customers only.
