About - GE GXRM10RBL

The GE GXRM10RBL is part of the water filter test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, water filter models like the GXRM10RBL 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.

It was easy to install, since we already installed an RO unit in our boat. Not easy for Beginners.<br /><br />Lowered salt significantly in soft water for drinking, beverages and ice cubes.<br /><br />Very cost effective, despite new filters every 6 mos, vs driving to local store three or more times per week<br /><br />Vastly improved drinkability of public water!

Great quality water, difficult to clean
Great tasting water
Saves On Bottled H20
Hard To Unscrew Cartridge
Best Uses
When this filter is operational, it is wonderful. Water quality tastes great. There is a large tank that stores filtered water under sink. <br /><br />However, every six months you have to replace the sump filters and clean the system. It is VERY difficult to unscrew the RO cartridge container as it builds up pressure and you cannot easily get it apart. It is very frustrating process every six months and definitely requires two people. With the system under the kitchen sink, and compactly organized, it is a challenging task even when following the instructions. The plastic tool provided isn't the best quality and doesn't keep its grip very well.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

10 To 1 Gallons Of Waste
Faulty Auto Shut Off

Poor customer support
Best Uses
I had the same negative issues that you can read if you google GXRM10RBL, you can get better for far less. Filters don't last long and are expensive.
