Soma™ Glass Carafe Water Pitcher Filter System Review
Soma's glass carafe is made from shatter-resistant Borosilicate glass. The Soma Glass Carafe water pitcher holds 48 oz. (6 cups) of filtered water. Each Soma filter should last for 40 gallons or two months. According to Soma's website, the filter reduces chlorine, mercury, copper. We cannot find any testing data on their website to support these claims about reducing chlorine, mercury or copper. This has frustrated many customers including Dr. Tyler Morgan-Wall, who has a PhD from John Hopkins. Dr. Morgan-Wall performed a scientific taste test on the Soma water pitcher and determined "Soma filtered water performed the worst, having a taste statistically indistinguishable from tap water." - see Dr. Morgan-Wall's analysis here. So how do Soma's filters compare to Epic Water Filters' Pure & Nano water filter pitcher at removing real contaminants found in tap water? Let's take a look.
