Reviews


homedepot.com: 2019-2021 – DWS-1000

  • Installation was a challange. The connection that came with the system does not work with all sinks, including ours. It took a phone call to customer service and couple trips to the store to get the correct fitting. Once completed, we love it.
  • The water tastes great!
  • The faucet is a 1/4 turn valve that doesn’t leak and is easy to operate.

  • DWS 1000 has lower filtration capacity compare with DWS 2500 T-CN of 2,800L.
    Lower flow rate of 2.27L compare with 2.85L and DWS 2500 T-CN has a better micron rating of 0.2 μ(micron) Absolute. For ~Rm500 (USD120) different, imo the DWS 2500 T-CN offer a better filtration, it’s almost like a mini AP 902 with carbon. Replacement cost 😅 for every 6months. 
  • If you want big brand and NSF, then 3M. If you want to save cost, GOST+LGA Standards is enough.
  • Easy Complete come with only 1 cartridge; Capacity 750 Gallons (2,839 Litres) while DWS 1000 come with 2 cartridges; Capacity 625 Gallons (2,365 liters)


The Main Differences of DWS1000 vs DWS2500T-CN

  • Flow rate of DWS-1000: 2.3 Litre per minute – lpm vs Flow rate of DWS2500T-CN: 0.75 gpm (2.84 Litre per minute – lpm)

Reviews of 3M Indoor Water Filters

The water taste great. If you want NSF certified, then choose 3M. If you want to save cost, GOST+LGA Standards is enough. DWS 2500 T-CN has a better micron rating of 0.2 μ Absolute and higher flow rate compared to DWS 1000. For ~Rm500 difference, imo it is better option.


3M AP902 Outdoor/ Whole House Filter

  • Xammax 3M AP902: RM1,144 | Installation RM250 (PM seller for contact)
  • Replacement Cartridge AP910R: RM576
  • Removes sediments, particulate, sand & rust. Filters down to 5 microns (nominal).
  • Outdoor Water Filter Whole House Filtration
  • Components certified by NSF International NSF/ANSI Standard 42.
  • FDA CFR-21 compliant material.
  • REVIEWS (tanshuyin.com): “With this 3M’s AP902 installed, we experience cleaner dishes and clothes, and I believe cleaner skin and shinier hair. AP902 does not filter chlorine which is actually important as chlorine acts as a disinfectant for water stored in these tanks. AP902 do not requires backwash, it provides expected filtration performance every time after the new cartridge replaced.”
