Reviews for AQUA CREST 6-Stage Replacement Water Filters, Replacement for ZR-017, ZR-001, ZP-010 Pitchers and Dispensers, Reduce TDS, 98% Chlorine, Bad Taste and Odor (2 Packs), Model No.:AQK-CF23B
People say Aqua Crest is really similar to Zerowater.
Cost less than OEM and filter out contaminants just as good, according to the zerowater meter.
These filters cost less than the Zerowater Filters, they fit perfectly, and they filter out contaminants so that the electronic meter says 001, and they seem to last just as long as the zerowater filters.
So far after several weeks it’s working fine.
Great value! I just hope they last a while before going bad. For some reason, the ZeroWater filters start giving out a strange taste after about two months. Never had that trouble with my Pur water filters.
Just as good (or better) than current Zerowater filters
These filters worked for 1 month+ under 05 ppm, the same as the current ZeroWater filters- my water is 125 ppm from the faucet. *The last filter of the set I bought in May (now late-January) is still at 02 ppm and still tastes great. I do not get the strong bitter-lemon taste when they do go over 05 ppm like my last few Zerowater filters, they seem to conk out overnight. I am not sure how such a strong bitterness comes from water that is still very clean, under 10 ppm. I am not a water scientist but I have been using Zerowater for several years and these are as good or better than the current Zerowater filters. The original Zerowater filters that were not tapered on the bottom, but a straight cylinder, did last for 2+ months, but those have not been made in quite some time. When Zerowater changed the design, I tested a set of original filters against the new ones and the original design lasted for many weeks longer. It does suggest the possibility that that Zerowater made an effort to redesign the filters to be less effective, so they would have to be replaced more often. Planned obsolescence is a part of the deal with replaceable filters, but to redesign your product to be less effective after they are on the market for some time is noticeable and lame, if that was the intention. I am pleased these Aquacrest filters are on the market because the Zerowater filters have been steadily increasing in price and degrading in quality. I will continue to buy them as long as the quali... Read More
These filters work
These filters work better than actual Zero Water filters do. This is what I'll be buying from here on out for my pitcher.on my 4th week and still reading .000 With a Zerowater filter, 2 weeks tops, and went downhill from that FAST.
These are great! Got them for my ZeroWater pitcher since the zero water filters only last a couple of weeks!! These Last much longer than the zero water filters. I have one of these in the pitcher right now since over a month!
It is probably better than the Zerowater filter.
Much Better than Expected - GREAT FILTERS
For over 3 years I’ve been spending over $120 for 8 ZeroWater Brand filters and was hoping oneday to save some money on purchasing and found these by accident - read the reviews - they were mixed - some people claiming they’re great some saying they’re awful - well my experience when you have so much difference in reviews that the product is usually good - Got the filters - My tap water reads 528 ... I ran my tap through the aqua crest filters - and for 2 weeks now - reads .000 - Same exact taste as the over priced filters and much better made it seems - Will not purchase Zero Water filters again - Thank God a company finally decided to make a filter to compete - EXCELLENT - 5 Stars !!! Will purchase again !
Works just as well as the OE ZeroWater filter at a fraction of the cost. Filters faster when new, and it cleans just as well. No complaints. Life of the filter is as long as the ZeroWater filters
Good replacement filters-but not in sealed bags
Filters work well (first few days). I would have preferred they be sealed in the little white bags like the Zerowater ones are, just for security.
