My Review:
We all know that when it comes to our drinking water, purified is the way to go. I know they say it's better to drink tap water because of the fluoride (good for the teeth), but there are other things in the water that are not safe to drink. One thing that grosses me the heck out is seeing the hard water build up and that pink stuff on the strainer and bathtub. I honestly don't know what the pink build up is called, but it's just nasty. It also depends on where you are because tap water is different everywhere you go. I've heard them say that water here in Wisconsin is the best water to drink. I can't say if it's true or not because I haven't had tap water from anywhere else, lol.

This right here is the Premium 10 Stage Water Filter from New Wave Enviro. To be honest, this is my first water filter that I have ever used on the sink. I've wanted one for a while, but finding the right one is a pain. There are so many models, brands, some do this and some do that, so that makes it complicating. The difference between the Premium 10 Stage Water filter and other brands is that this filter has 10 stages. Each stage protects your water from any major contaminates.

Stage 130 micron sponge filter. Traps larger solids (sediments) such as rust.
Stage 28 oz. of KDF-55. KDF-55 is a patented alloy which removes free chlorine and some heavy metals, thereby prolonging the life of the filter and is an excellent Bacteriostat.
Stage 310 micron felt pad which removes smaller floating solids and separates the layers, preserving their integrity.
Stage 4 - 30 cubic inches of ultra fine mesh, superior coconut shell and granulated activated carbon. Granulated activated carbon has long been accepted by the E.P.A. and others as the premier, cost-effective way to remove chlorine, bad odors and color from drinking water. G.A.C. also removes organic contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides, arsenic, mercury and trihalomethanes - a cancer-causing organic pollutant.
Stage 510 micron felt pad for fine sediment removal.
Stage 67 cubic inches of ion exchange resin which removes lead to below minimum E.P.A. standards.
Stage 7Additional 30 micron felt pad provides an extra buffer against floating sediment of any kind.
Stage 8 7 cubic inch bed of G.A.C. which provides extra protection against cancer-causing organic pollutants.
Stage 92 oz. of calcite which raises the water’s pH and lowers acidity. It also increases alkalinity, which many nutritionists recommend.
Stage 101 micron absolute depth filter. A filter with a micron rating this small screens out cysts and protozoa, (including Giardia and Cryptosporidium), and gives the filtered water a sparkling clarity.

Not only does the water filter work in stages, but it also removes: Chlorine and Chloramines, Herbicides and Pesticides, Hydrogen Sulfide (rotten egg odor), Trihalomethanes (cancer-causing organic/chlorine compounds), Heavy metals like lead, mercury, cadmium and so much more!

Here is an image of my sink before I put the water filter on. Before placing the water filter on, I needed to remove the front of the faucet. As you can see, this thing has not been replaced... The screen on the inside is all broken and tore up. I showed it to my husband and the first thing he says is, "I've been washing dishes with that?". Uh yeah, but what about us drinking through that! He was shocked to see how corroded the thing is. That filter right there is supposed to catch anything foreign in the water and guess what, it wasn't because it was torn to pieces. If I would have know that, I would have done something sooner. I feel grossed out just knowing that we were drinking water from that!

After removing the nasty thing from the sink, I put the water filter on. It took me a bit to get the thing screwed on because the kids kept distracting me, lol. They love crawling up my butt when they know I am in the middle of doing something. Anyways, once I had the piece attached to the faucet, I turned the water on to make sure nothing was leaking and that it was on properly. After that, I turned on the water filter. When the filter is being used for the first time, don't freak out. At first I thought the filter was damaged because there was this stream of black water coming out and I shut the filter off right away.

I should have read the rest of the instructions because it mentions in there that when it's used for the first time, the water clears out any "extra" debris in the filter and you should run the water for at least 2 to 3 minutes before drinking. Yeah, I'm a genius, lol. I did turn the filter back on and a few seconds later, the water ran clear. A few minutes later I grabbed a glass and enjoyed a nice cup of clean water. It's so refreshing knowing that the water we are drinking now is free from any chemicals and cancer causing particles. I feel a hell of a lot better knowing that our water is safe and it beats having to pay for bottled water all the time!

    I don't have kids "up my butt" when I'm trying to do stuff - just a couple of nosy nosy cats!

  7. Great review. But now I'm completely freaked out about what the inside of my faucet looks like because I've never, ever taken it apart. And up until recently I drank water straight from the faucet. Eww!

  8. Great review. I like the step by step process. I'm not surprised by what's in the faucet. My water is discolored and smells yucky.

  9. I think that this is a fabulous product! 4 or 5 steps would probably be sufficient but this filter goes above and beyone. Thank you for the great review!

  13. It is totally gross what comes from your water and the dirt in the pipes. Would love it., candy kratzer wenzel

  14. Thanks so much for your review. I could not agree more that drinking tap water can be very nasty. Especially when it comes from Lakemore Ohio where I live. We never drink tap water here and we are constantly having to drive to where we can purchase filtered water. What a blessing it would be to not need to do that for the first time in 3 years of living here!

  15. lol i just love your personality! You did such a great review and now i want to try this too! thanks!

  16. Love a good filtration system, I have been looking at one for the house, but they are pricy.

  17. I think the Premium 10 Stage Water Filter looks very nice. Thanks for the interesting and informative review!
