Dear JDHarding,

I am interested, did you do any research on ZeroWater products?  They have been spoken well of in this forum.

Here are the negative reviews of Zerowater on Amazon.  TIFWIW.

Click Here (www.amazon.com)

The above link goes to 94 one-star reviews.  There were 223 five-star, and a balanced mix of around 50 each for two, three, and four star reviews.  

Not a scientific study, being Amazon, but a decent amount of reviews nonetheless.

I think that the first step in deciding on a water treatment/filtering solution is to assess the actual condition/contents of the water to be treated and decide on what you wish the output to be and come up with a solution that achieves that as well as meeting any space, plumbing, or financial parameters. Then there is the reality of the solution juxtaposed to the hyperbole created by the seller/manufacturer.

A 1 micron final filter? You breath in that sort of particulate matter all day long. It's a lot worse in your lungs than what is in the water getting into the gut.

I am also somewhat perplexed by the OP's original post asking for solutions, then later informing us as to what was purchased yet never mentioned in the thread until post-purchase. I had friends like that who knew I worked on cars out of my garage at home yet never asked, "Should I buy this particular used car?" but they had no problem driving it over and saying, "Look what I bought! Can you fix the overheating problem?"

This deja vu is getting old all over again. or is it....?

I see now that he has gone back and removed all the text from his posts. "Kick-Ban" comes to mind, but MODS, I think this thread needs to be deleted and the OP given a slap on the wrist, at least. bad form, indeed.

I believe telling the mods/admins what to do is against the forum rules or is just "bad form" in my opinion to tell someone how to do their job. Someone chosen to be a moderator because they know how to moderate situations. I know it's against the forum rules on forums I admin.

I deleted these posts because I didn't want any further whining from you or filtration suggestions from others.

Also, banning me or reprimanding me on a forum I rarely frequent because I deleted some text, which the option is available for me to do so in the first place, has got to be the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life. This falls under free speech and I have the right to remove what I've written because *I* own what I've written and can do with it as I so please.

IMO, (Not that it matters, and, I'm quite sure that it doesn't) Mr Harding is correct here.
Actually, the post that needs to be moderated, struck, and quite possibly removed is Mr "Aqua Safe's" posting, which is a blatant violation of several rules, one being a commercial posting, then other violation is CG's rule, listed at the bottom of this page which states  "Probationary Period: If you are a new signup for CoffeeGeek, you cannot promote, endorse, criticise or otherwise post an unsolicited endorsement for any company, product or service in your first five postings."

Oh well.

Thanks Rob. I missed that one.

As to the posting of suggestions for moderators to take action, there is no rule against it, and the moderators (me at least) aren't offended. If it makes sense we'll do something about it; if it doesn't, we will ignore it. What members should not do is get into arguments about what the moderators should or should not do - that takes the thread off topic. Take that discussion to the Off Topics forum.

You can always reach the moderators through email - See: http://coffeegeek.com/forums/members/sitenews/188939
