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

Wary Regretful
Bought per CR recommend; initially very happy with it; filters that came with performed well. Started looking for replacement filters; not available from orig retailer. :( Online searches turn up many many complaints. Now wary about buying replacements--don't want to throw good money after bad--regret ever buying ZeroWater pitcher.

Fish Smell
Best Uses
I got this because my grandchildren did not like the taste of our water, it has iron in it, but 2 tests by the state showed zero nitrates or anything else harmful. Zero seemed OK at first but when the water started smelling like fish that was it. I do not care to have some strange bacteria in my water. I am sticking with our well water.
