About

The Kinetico K5 Drinking Water Station is part of the Water filter test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Water filter models like the K5 Drinking Water Station 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.
