iSpring DF2-CHR Review

This top-notch faucet-mount water filter comes from the well-known company iSpring. Their products are considered to be a good value for money, and this one is no exception. The model is made in China, and its housing is made from food-grade BPA-free plastic with a chrome finish.

If you’re looking for a versatile yet affordable water filter, this unit accommodates the majority of the kitchen faucets and bathroom faucets.

Features

iSpring DF2-CHR Faucet Mount Water FilterYou may find this hard to believe that such a reasonably priced unit can do a lot of work, but it can, and it does. With this iSpring filter series, you can enjoy cleaner and healthier water for a long time. What is more, it is a long-lasting filter that can treat up to 500 gallons of water. Plus, the flow rate is very good for such a small device. It’s 1,5 gallons per minute.

So, the most crucial question is, what does this filter eliminate? Quite a lot, actually. This unit uses a carbon filter, which can reduce or remove the following: chlorine and chloramine, mercury, lead, cyst, VOCs, lindane, and many other water contaminants. After the water has been cleared of all of these impurities, it tastes better. If your tap water suffers from the problems mentioned above, you can rely on this faucet filter to get rid of them.

The filter endures temperatures ranging from 40 to 176 degrees Fahrenheit. That is more than enough, and you can safely use it on a kitchen or a bathroom faucet.

Also, you can turn the diverter handle and switch between regular tap water and filtered water. Adding this device doesn’t limit you to only using filtered water. This is an excellent plus bearing in mind that some products do not offer this option.

This product’s filter should be changed either at 500 gallons or after eight months, whichever comes first.

Installation

Luckily, this model comes with different types of adaptors in the package. There’s a metal adapter with two male ends, a universal adapter, and sealing washers. What you may need to use for the installation that isn’t included in the box is a wrench and maybe some Teflon tape.

The setup itself isn’t complicated. Even if you have no plumbing experience, you should be able to do it. Keep in mind that this model’s head doesn’t turn, so be careful not to break it unintentionally.

First, you remove the aerator from your faucet. Then, depending on your faucet’s threads, use the appropriate adapter from the installation kit. Place a sealing washer into the connector and attach the filter to the faucet.

Lastly, run the water through the device and wait a couple of minutes. That way, the filter can activate, and the loose carbon flushes without ending up in your glass of water.
