how to turn wine into water: ingenious test shows just how powerful new water filter jugs are
This may sound crazy, but a new type of water filter claims to be very effective in removing toxins and it can do that.
Tired of coming out of our taps but not drinking eco-friendly water
More and more of us buy filter water bottles, an unfriendly bottle variety.
While our tap water is safe to drink, it may contain chemicals that many families would rather avoid.
Tom Lloyd of filter company ZeroWater said that unfiltered water often contains trace amounts of harmful dissolved solids, such as chlorine used to treat tap water, or lead and other heavy metals in old pipes.
It also contains minerals such as calcium, which can cause scale.
The premise of the filter is simple: water flows through reusable and replaceable filters that remove chlorine, metals and any other dirt leaving a smoother taste.
But how effective are they?
Can any of them pass the final test?

A miracle trick of 12 cups of kettle in REDZeroWater, £ 39. 99, zerowater. co. ukWHAT IS IT?
ZeroWater was launched in the UK and made a major statement --
Its filtration system is very effective and can turn red wine into pure water.
The kettle is bigger and heavier than the other ones I tested and needs to be reshuffled to fit into the fridge.
But maybe that\'s not surprising because it contains five layers of filters in a plastic case --
Including mesh screens for particle and sediment removal, electricity
Resin with charge, used to extract metal, a layer of activated carbon to improve taste, and fine film for capturing the smallest particles.
I was surprised that any water molecules would be able to squeeze in and nothing else would mind.
The kettle also has a \"tap\" so you can put it directly into the glass.
Water test: pour a cup of tap water first, taste it, and then measure the content of minerals, salt and metal with a specially designed meter (
Known as \"total soluble solids\" or TDS)in it.
It gives a reading of 290 mg per liter.
I then run the tap water through the filter and measure it again.
Now the reading is zero.
In addition to the purest water molecules, it has removed everything and the taste is smoother.
Wine testing: The real challenge is coming.
I poured a glass of 100 ml red wine and tried to measure the total soluble solids again --
But the wine was too strong for the squad leader to even get a reading.
The work of the filter was cut off this time.
I pour the wine into the top of the filter and wait.
This is not an immediate result, which is understandable considering how many layers the wine needs to go through, but after a few seconds, when the transparent liquid flows out of the other end of the filter, I look at it with surprise.
Not only is it clear and transparent, but it tastes like water when I sip it --
The meter shows zero when I read it again.
It really turned the wine into the purest water. Miracle!

The result tastes like a disgusting, bitter, light red wine.

The machine reads it as solid, but it\'s safe here.

Wine test: The filter recommends water only, so the wine does not change color even if it is placed in a glass bottle for 36 hours.
