About - Amway eSpring 10-0188

The Amway eSpring 10-0188 is part of the water filter test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, water filter models like the eSpring 10-0188 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Lead removal:
Lead removal indicates the percentage of lead that was removed by each filter.

Chloroform removal:
Chloroform removal rates the percentage of chloroform removed. A filter's ability to remove chloroform predicts how well it will remove organic compounds as well as byproducts created by disinfectants used by water systems.

Flow rate:
Flow rate is how fast a gallon of water filtered through the cartridge. The criteria for flow rate scores differ between different types of filters. Faucet-mount, countertop, and undersink models have the same criterion; carafes and reverse osmosis models each have their own.

Best thing about this filter is the electronic monitoring, which ensures you change the filter when required. In other brands it's easy to forget and this can actually lead to worse quality.<br /><br />There's a non-UV version which is significantly cheaper than the one CR tested but otherwise the same. I have the more expensive UV version, which kills a lot of pathogens in the water that other filters do not.
