About - Clear2O CWS100A

The Clear2O CWS100A is part of the water filter test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, water filter models like the CWS100A 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.

Good Filter with an after-sale issue
Good tasting water
Adapter Not Available
Best Uses
The only downside we've experienced is that surface finish of the adapter begins to flake off after a few month's use, and the adapter is not availabe as a replacement part.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Best Uses
I bought this brand only because of the CR review. It has been a huge mistake, poor design has made it deteriorate to the point that it is completely useless. Now I'm out $$$ and have to go through the process of returning this faulty filter. CR should retest this item. I cannot believe that it actually works. The pitcher is top heavy, always falls over as I am attaching the device. Water has sprayed all over the kitchen and my evening outfit. I could go on but I would not consider this a time saving device.

Great product, I've been using it for over a year now. Fills faster than any other system I've used. Water tastes great and I haven't had any issues with it. <br /><br />Downside? Need an adapter on your facet, which to me, not a big deal.
