Flavor and Odor Reduction

Flavor and Odor Reduction

A measure of how effectively the filter removed flavor taints, along with the resulting odor taints, that CR added to plain water with minimal intrinsic flavor and odor (the "control" water). The test measured how close the flavor and odor of the filtered water was to that of the control water.
