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.

Great quality water, difficult to clean
6/22/2014
Pros
Great tasting water
Saves On Bottled H20
Cons
Hard To Unscrew Cartridge
Best Uses
Comment:
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
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Straightforward installation........

Pros
Easy Install
Flexible Mounting
Price is great
Cons
Expensive filters
Slow recovery
Best Uses
Espresso drinking ice
Comment:
I have VERY hard water, plus sulfur and iron. Must use softener but soft water tastes terrible. Bottled too expensive and two labs drink a ton of water too. Installation was a little slow but very straight forward. Recovery on tank is slow and tank does not have capacity as stated - only approx 1.5 gallons. Filters expensive - per year filers same cost as entire unit. Appears as though timer is not based on usage but actual time - may lead to replacing filters before they have ended useful lifespan - therefore $$$. Overall good so far, waters tastes right.
