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 have been using this product for more than a year. I was very excited with the filtration system because I have extremely hard water. Lately I have noticed the filters leave my water with a really bad fishy taste and smell and can turn the water a yellowish tint. I can't afford to gamble on filters so unfortunately cannot continue to use this product.

Comment:
I have changed filters way too many times and feel like now they aren't good even right out of the box. The last box of 2 is going back as each filter had readings of over 50 with the first pitcher of water. Am trying a new system after this.

Comment:
I replaced my Brita filter after I realized that it does not remove sediments out of water .I am happy with this system even though I did replace filter on my own initiative after month and a half. It is filtrating really well .I really have no idea what people who are complaining about taste are talking about. Several of my friends tasted it and they all agree that there is nothing wrong with water.
