About - Clear2O CWS100A

The Clear2O CWS100A is part of the water filter test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, water filter models like the CWS100A 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.

Comment:
I have been using this product for over five years and have told my family/friends about the consistent great water results. Once you get through the quick installation (it was quick for me, maybe others have problems) your set. The pitcher has a solid design, fills in seconds (no waiting like the other pitchers in the market) and removes more contaminants than any of the other pitchers. The replacement filters (filters 50 gallons) are $9.99 on the Clear2O website and the pitcher has an indicator that measure the water flow to give you accurate usage. What is there not to love.

Sink hook-up can be tricky but best filter I've used

Cons
Attachment To Faucet

Best Uses
Comment:
Okay -- so I ordered one from {rhymes with Bamazhon) based on the reviews because I could not find this filter in the stores near me (Raleigh, NC). You DO need to replace the spout on your sink AND they have everything you need in the box. For me, no big deal because I'm living in an apartment, but if I was in my own home with a really nice faucet, this could be an issue. So, the first one I got worked fine -- I love how it filters as fast as the water enters it -- no waiting. It's a learning curve to get the plug for the water hooked onto the (new modified) faucet correctly -- it doesn't take a brain surgeon, but it took me numerous tries. Then one time, within 30 days, I guess I pulled the outside attachment part down, and lo and behold, one of the ball bearings popped out. Well, it won't work without all of them in place. Couldn't get the thing back together. So, I just had {online retailer that rhymes with BAMAZHON} exchange it for another one and within 2 days (because I am a BAMAZHON Primo member) I was in business again. I REALLY like this filter very much and now I can get it hooked up to the faucet the first try every time. I recommend it because if you read the rating info, it filters much more than the other traditional types similar to this. That's a huge plus for me.

Comment:
I've been very happy with this water filtering carafe. I've used it daily since August 2011 and it works very well. Water tastes very good and I've been traveling in my RV all over the West where the water is often hard.
