About - ZeroWater ZP-010 10-cup Pitcher

The ZeroWater ZP-010 10-cup Pitcher is part of the water filter test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, water filter models like the ZP-010 10-cup Pitcher 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.

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.

Clogging:
Clogging measures how well the filter retains its flow rate over time and whether it stopped flowing completely before its claimed life span.

Comment:
I am a big water drinker so the fact that this filter could hold 10 cups is what really attracted me to it along with the reviews on consumer reports. After using it just a couple of times however I was sadly disappointed but kept using it for a couple months since I thought I just got a few bad filters. After the fourth-fifth filter however I had enough and started asking around/ researching for better water pitchers. <br />I ended up buying one other water pitcher before my friend recommended a glass water filter called Soma. This filter is a dramatic upgrade from both the Zerowater's filter and the other filter I got right after I gave up the Zerowater pitcher. <br />Soma's water taste great, you get a filter sent to your doorstep automatically every two months (that's the time it takes for the filter to expire), and the design of the carafe is sleek and clean so I can have it out on my dining room table when guests come over for dinner! I love this filter and I would recommend it to everyone. <br />Here's their website if you want an upgrade from your last water pitcher :) www.drinksoma.com

Comment:
I bought this based on the Consumer Reports rating. I think they did not test long enough. The water tastes fine when the filter is brand new, however after only @ 5 fill ups, the water started to smell like dead fish. Replacing the filter is expensive based on how long they last; $14 wouldn't be a bad price if it lasted a month or so but not when it lasts about a week! I called the company and they told me that this is common and that I just need to replace my filter more often. NO THANKS! Do yourself a favor and pass on this one. This is one of those rare occassions where CS got it wrong (at least for the water in Indiana.)

Comment:
We use a softener system that is potassium chloride based to be kinder to the environment and ourselves. We previously had a Brita that needed to be replaced due to having been a little too close to the stove. Initially loved the design of the Zero Water system because of the multi faceted pitcher design. We filled water bottles to take to the gym and found that the water tasted like a dead body had been floating in the pitcher for a while. The pitcher and filter were three weeks old. Not cool.
