TAP WATER-Taiwan Bee-UK-(zerowater)

Recommended Posts

I just did a test on the company water, using the drinks machine, I get 003, when testing the tap water I get 076

You should get over 200L then!

I'm not too sure what you mean about the 003 company water/drinking machine. The water after filtering will be 000 but you have to put it into a clean and dry container from the filter. If you have used a container that held tap water first then the little water that was still in the container may give you small reading, if that makes sense? So don't use a jug to pour the water into the filter and then pour the water back into that jug without drying that jug first??

I didn't use the zerowater, I just took a reading from water of our drinking machines, it contains a RO, and also taken the reading from a tap, in both case, the water was in a ordinary ceramic cup.

OK, that makes more sense.

When you use the zerowater, do you keep the dispenser filled up, or only put water through the filter when in need. I see the filter will start to wear off if you keep the dispenser fill with water.

I have always filtered the water through the jug and then it goes into another container like a bucket (where it may sit for a few days) to be carried so I haven't had water sitting in it. I am not aware whether leaving water in the jug will reduce the life of the filter or not?? I only got the small jug so it only does 1L at a time anyway!

IF there is anyone out there that has/is using the ZeroWater jug would you mind replying to this thread with your reactions to it, so there is more than just my experiences on here for future reference should anyone else want to try using it? + or - welcome?

I think there are about half a dozen people that were going to try SO FAR but some haven't been on here since and that is fine, I can assume that it worked in their case so they didn't need any further help etc???

Thanks for taking the time to anyone who does this!

I have a zero water container, sdiTBfanUK recommended it, it contains 21 cup of zero water, after water is filtered the water goes into my 10 Litres reservoir for auto water top up for both my shrimps and cuora trifaciata turles, I only use it for top up in the turles tank, but for shrimps it is use for top up and when I do water change. I just use tap water for my turtles for water change, turtles product too much waste and I have to change about 60% of the water.

So far I'm happy with the Zerowater, its still holding up with 000-002 ppm reading. I also use shrimp king liquid mineral to mineralize the water for the shrimps.

Thanks KMS, there may be problems with this forum as there seems to be some sort of 'attack' going on from over your way (started yesterdaay) so it is going very slow and Cesar is looking into it? Hopefully it won't cause too much disruption and people can still use the site, there were 600+ bogus attempts last time I looked.........

Hope your crabs and snails are doing well! I had a delivery of some blue bolts, red steel, red wine shrimps yesterday and their colour is fabulous and I don't think they  have died yet, saw all 5 red wines earlier???? Hopefully the tank is more settled now and it will be plain sailing from here.

I think there is something wrong, had to press the submit button a few times, it doesn't register a click, and slow down, i'm using a company network, which block many things, so it should happen.

I have a few crabs, they like to hide, so I lost count on how many I have. the last time I seen at one time was 6 crabs.

You did well, they probably didn't have what you ordered exactly so made it up with what they had. You got a lot for your money there, wow!

I have just ordered my LAST lot of taiwan bee shrimps today so should get those next week, 5 black, 10 blue, 10 red assorted mix! If this lot don't work out it will be dwarf spotted rasboras in that tank in future?

I check those babies, I can only see 2, it seem they are only CRS or red wind, which came from a pinto mixed with other shrimps. same for me, if shrimps don't do well, I will keep miniture puffers.

Are you having problems with your tanks?

I thought you were ok with all your equipment etc?

That's ok then, I thought you must have lost a lot or something!

The dwarf puffers are interesting but you can't even keep snails with them as they eat anything that moves? The dwarf rasboras like similar conditions to TB shrimp. I will see what happens with next weeks delivery of shrimps first and decide from there? In theory I could keep both as it is a heavily planted tank so some baby shrimp should survive - if I even get any that is? One step at a time!

UK people, Morrisons (not all branches I suspect) now sell the zerowater filters and jugs etc at the same prices as the importer website!

      I got some nice specimen from my mix-aquarium with TB's, pinto's, taitibees etc, etc, The first 2 photos (I think) must be a mix from a pinto zebra and a kingkong, The red one is probably a red tiger and the same father? I've got 2 of the  blacks and about 10 of the red ones, I have put them apart from the rest and see what the next genereation will be. Sorry for the quality of the photo's, they're just from my iPhone, the macrolens I ordered hasn't arrived yet :-(

      Hey guys,
      Does anyone breed blue bolts from mischlings ? I've searched for a guide but didn't find one, read a lot about crossbreeding and soon I want to start a project to produce my own blue bolts.
      I need your advices on this.
      Thank you!
