Chinese unregulated untested compatible water filter scores 2 thumbs and 2 toes DOWN. Made good water taste bad.
on July 6, 2017
At any price, this compatible water filter was a waste of time and money. I purchases 3 to get a really good price, and it turned out to be a real bad purchase at any price. The filter seemed to install fine, but within a week or two, Yuk, Yuk, the water started tasting awful. Replaced it with the 2nd of three purchased, and it resulted in the same experience. Installed fine and water taste improved but within a couple weeks the water tasted like Yuk again. Replaced the 2nd with the 3rd of 3, and the water improved taste for a week or two and returned to Yuk tasking water. Thinking something must really must be wrong, I cut one filter in half with my saw. It all looked clean and nothing obviously jumped out. without resources to test the carbon filter for defects or impurities, the Yuk taste from all 3 filters was all I had to rate this product 4 THUMBS DOWN. (Can I count my two big toes as thumbs?). Some other reviewers complained of restricted water flow. My guess is the carbon filter may be sub-grade, or damaged during assembly, resulting in fragments of filter material clogging the water flow. Others have mentioned the product and packaging have no signs of certification being found for the quality or standards that should be required for any water purification product.
In short, this UN-certified Chinese manufactured (Compatible???) product made our reasonable tasting water taste like Yuk.
