Soma Water Filter

This next-generation water filter delivers crisp, clean water, minimalist good looks, and a subscription service that means you never have to deal with stickers or timers again——the company delivers new filters to your door every two months. A biodegradable, organic filter made of silk and food-based plastic means you’ll never have those pesky black flecks again (or the guilt of throwing away a bulky landfill filter). Plus, the glass carafe is so stylish it’s a worthy addition to your dinner table—and has a beveled edge for an extraneat pour.

Loved it, then HATED it.

I spent over a year LOVING my Soma carafe. Then they "improved" the design. The claim is that it now filters out more contaminants, however, the result is that it now barely filters water at all. The filtering is a slow drip at best, and frequently the filter never completely finishes processing- which leaves the carafe top heavy and your drinking glass empty. I have now spent several months going back and forth with customer service asking very direct questions about what they are doing to address the new issues- which have been acknowledged. Instead of answers I have received filter 1.0 replacements- which I have been informed they have a supply of but will not sell, which is interesting to say the least. This month I received a 2.0 filter in a 1.0 soaking bag. Tricky, but not. The filter didn't work any better after being repackaged. I did all the problem shooting, tried to be patient for 2 weeks, then logged in and discontinued my subscription. I really wanted to support this company. I am disappointed that things went the way they did.

Nice but needs improvement

First and foremost I love the Soma. From the design to the function I think it's great. I will say though that it can be a bit awkward and maybe too heavy for some. Also, I am just assuming that it is filtering out those unwanted "things" that are found in tap water - Hopefully I am right. The only thing that I really do not like is how you take apart the top. I feel like I am on the verge of breaking it every time I clean it. However, and again, I love it.

Better than Brita

I received a free Soma when they first started the company as a giveaway. I was very excited to receive it. The design is sleek and modern, however the first 8 or so times I used it, the water tasted funky. I'd definitely recommend soaking the filter much longer than instructions dictate.

Love Soma's effective and beautiful design!

I recently started using the Soma water carafe and soon after bought their pitcher too. I love them both! My water is clean, odorless and tastes great. I love these products because of their simple and beautiful design. I always get compliments whenever I have them out on the table at home. In addition to having a great product Soma is a sustainably conscious company who cares about their impact on the world. Knowing part of every filter purchase is donated to charity:water, an organization who is working to bring clean drinking water to underdeveloped places around the world makes this product that much better. I know what all my friends and family are getting for their birthdays this year :)

Amazing

I love my SOMA filter. It is a great alternative to other filters on the market place and supporting a business that looks beyond it's self.

Pitcher is nice looking
Purchased

Great design and the bottle looks good and is of good quality. The water drips when pouring though. If you remove the filter and filter holder ( which defeats the purpose of this item) then there are no drips when pouring. For the price I want a better product.

How do I get the replacement filters?

Pro:
Look cool on the counter top
Water taste good
Fits in fridge

Con:
No clue where to order the filters
Constantly having to refill

Other:
Kind hard to pour

I like it enough to keep it, but where do the filters come from? Make it easier to order. Should have been more automated when I ordered the unit.

Terrible
Purchased

This water filter is incredibly unpleasant to use. The issue is that they spent more time advertising their design than actually perfecting it.

You will constantly spill water because it collects at the top of the mechanism or gets trapped between the glass and plastic housing. Even worse you will splash it all over your kitchen when you go to refill it due to the fact that the spout cover 'sticks' instead of depressing to let the water in.

The height of the filter will probably prevent you from fitting it in most shelves of your fridge, if you can fit it at all (truly this will only fit in a "big" fridge - like one with french doors). Even if you can fit it, you will realize how inefficient the circular footprint is.

I bought this filter for one reason: it has a glass body instead of plastic. Unfortunately its literally a chore to use. Dont buy.

Loved it

The design of this product is very interesting, and I really feel safer knowing that I'm not filling my drinks with tap water, it's great for me
