Simply put, it is very cheap quality! Having owned several other filter pitchers, and experience what can be produced for the actual pitcher, NO comparison! So, I thought well, maybe they put all their resources in the filters. Yes, I detected a nice, smooth, and clean taste, but could only produce 2 to 3 glasses of water at one time! No way of knowing the truth of the science they are promoting.
I don't think I can in good conscience recommend this item to anyone! My expectations were not realized, even though I am still drinking the water as I take my medication twice a day, hoping for some noticeable results, but there is nothing to report!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
