The most important thing about a water filter is whether it does the job it's supposed to do. So far I have found no information from Soma on what contaminants the Soma Water Filter filters out, or any third-party documentation on this. Lead? Chloroform? Arsenic? Other chemicals? Flouride? Pesticides? There's lot of hype about how pretty the decanter looks on a dining room table, and the fact that black specks don't appear in the container or in water as its poured. While I applaud the fact the filter is biodegradable, and the container is made of glass, not plastic, wise consumers need more facts, and a company that purports to be so environmentally conscious should be more forthcoming.
I love how this filter looks. Very easy to use and set up. Filter replacement is a no brainer, they send it to you every two months.
I bought this item here because the company seems to only have a Facebook website. I can't subscribe to the filter service without giving my contact info to FB, which is very annoying. I already have an Aqua Ovo at home, but I wanted this for the office and travel. I will have to figure out a work around or send it back.
None of the marketing information quantifies what impurities get filtered out or how much. The water passes through the filter so quickly that I do wonder if it really removes much at all. Yes, I did properly soak it and flush it first, as directed.
The container is attractive enough, but I would like the filter holder even better if it were stainless steel. Just because the filter itself uses compostable plastic doesn't mean the filter holder and lid have to be plastic.
Just got my Soma yesterday. Looks and functions beautifully so far. Only wish they had made silicone sleeve for it, so it doesnt bang when you put it on countertop. Makes me a little nervous and hsve to be extra cautious putting it down-especially when it is full.
