I received this product from CLEAR2O for review. Have you ever wondered how many contaminants are hiding in that glass of water you just filled from your faucet? If you live in the country and have well water, chances are that it's filled with iron and other heavy metals. But even those who live in a city would be surprised how many contaminants there are. It's no secret that city water contains chlorine, but what else might you be unknowingly drinking? And what can you do about it? You can filter your water before you drink it.
The CLEAR2O Advanced Water Filtration Pitcher is priced at $34.99 and is an excellent choice to filter your water. Many water filter pitchers on the market use a pour through filtration method, which relies on granulated carbon as a primary filtering agent. But the CLEAR2O Advanced Water Filtration Pitcher is designed with a one micron superior solid carbon block technology that fills in seconds using the water pressure to filter through the solid carbon block, blocking harmful contaminants and reducing the bad taste and odor that is so often found.
This water pitcher is fast and easy to install. It fits most standard faucets, but it's NOT recommended for kitchen sprayer type faucets. It will filter 50 gallons of water and fills in seconds.
The pitcher uses the CWF500 Series Filter, a one micron solid carbon block filter, which has been independently tested on (and shown to reduce) over 200 contaminants to achieve water industry standards NSF/ANSI 42, NSF/ANSI 53 for reduction of Chlorine, Heavy Metals, Cysts, VOC and NSF/ANSI 401 test standards for removal of Herbicides, Pesticides, Pharmaceuticals, Industrial Wastes, and PFOA’s (Perfluorooctanoic Acids), which are man made chemicals that are used in various manufacturing processes.
You can take the guessing out of filter changes with the Intelligent Filter Indicator. If it's GREEN, it means the filter is working. If it's RED, it means the filter cartridge has reached the end of its life and needs to be replaced.
The pitcher is BPA Free and holds 1.75 liters of water (that's nine 8 oz. glasses). It comes with one water filter and a faucet adapter kit. The heavy duty adapters have a dual thread design with female 55/64"-27 and male 15/16"-27 threads. It does require aerator installation for the water pressure from your faucet to deliver superior filtration.
Once you install the faucet adapter, you'll be ready to use your new water filtration pitcher in just three easy steps...Insert the Solid Carbon Block Filter inside the pitcher, twist to the Lock Position and close the lid.
