Aqua-Pure AP-DWS1000 Drinking Water System

APDW80 and 90 Cartridges

With these two filters, contaminants get attacked twice with each filter’s unique pull-and-change design. The cartridges have dual-stage carbon block filtration, which reduce many harmful particles in the water.

In the first stage, the water flows into a multi-composite material that tackles lead and chlorine sediment.

In the second stage, the water hits a pressed carbon block made of powdered activated carbon. This goes to work on THMs (Trihalomethane) or byproducts of chlorinating water. It also reduces volatile organic carbon compounds (VOCs), mainly pesticides, industrial run-off, and PCEs, chemicals from dry cleaners that get into the ground water.

Auto Shut-Off and Reminder

The Aqua-Pure DWS1000 Under-Sink System has a unique auto shut-off valve that shuts the system down at the end of the life of the filter. A built-in automatic shut-off meter reminds you when the filters need to be changed.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

The Aqua-Pure DWS1000 Under-Sink Water System Filter does not interfere with the flow from your water source and doesn’t leak bits of charcoal, like a filter pitcher.

The taste of the water is great. One consumer had had the system for over ten years and said the water from this system always tastes good. He moved it back and forth between the kitchen sink and the ice maker in his refrigerator.

Cons:

One consumer reported that he received a T-fixture to join with his water line that did not match his plumbing. He was able to find one to fit the system, and everything else worked fine.

The copper tubing fittings crack after some years’ use and can leak.

Some consumers had trouble replacing the cartridges, because the instructions on the Aqua-Pure website differed from the instructions that came with the product.

Final Thoughts

The Aqua-Pure DWS1000 Under-Sink Water System Filter is a very popular alternative to expensive plastic water bottles. It can easily be moved from one point to another (i.e., the sink to a refrigerator) to purify water.

This is a great model to introduce your family to living more environmentally friendly.
