Frankly speaking, I was more preoccupied with the need to soften our extremely hard tap water than to purify it. It’s thriftless for me to buy expensive water purifying and softening systems: I’m temporarily renting the flat, and I have no idea of how long it will last. That’s why I’ve chosen something simple, cheap, but giving at least some effect of water softening.

I’ve looked through the characteristics of many similar jugs, but my choice fell on this one, because, as it is mentioned in the annotation, its cartridge is designed for hard water with big iron and organics content. Besides, apart from the sorbents that are usual in such cases, it includes ion exchange resin which partly softens the water.

I’ve been using it for 3 months already. What can I say? The water tastes different for the better. Our unpurified water is also good, but it became tastier and much softer in a way.

Moreover, before using the filter I had zealously cleaned my kettle of scale for reasons of clarity. After two months have passed I can confirm that it really softens the water: there is no scale. It used to emerge very quickly.

At first, the filtration speed was very high. Afterwards, evidently, as the filter was fouling, it became lower and lower. There is a LED resource on the filter, which is supposed to show the remaining resource of the cartridge. You should slightly press it, and the 4, 3, 2 or 1 light-emitting diode will blink, according to the level of depreciation of the filter. But in fact, as far as I understood, they only show the time use. It means that its indications don’t depend on the intensity of using the filter.

But what I don’t like is the valve through which the water is poured inside. It’s supposed to open by itself under the pressure of the tap water flow. But, either we have a weak flow or the developers have failed to add something, but the valve won’t open by itself.I open and I hold it with the gander crane until the water fills the filter.

But in general, the filter is not bad, if choosing among the jugs. It was convenient to buy a packaging of six supplement cartridges, so, I don’t need to buy any for some time.
