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 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.

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.
