The Tersano Lotus LWT100 was the top pitcher pick by Consumer Reports in their study of water-filter pitchers three years ago. Itâ€™s also fairly expensive at prices up to almost $400.
The countertop product claims to filter out most all troubling chemicals and pathogens with a two-stage system which includes adding ozone to the water (which, it says, will â€śdestroy more than 99.99 percent of bacteria and viruses.â€ť)
The second carbon filter removes â€śpesticides, wastes, other chemical contaminants, plus any remaining ozone.â€ť
The system, the company says, is more effective and cost-efficient than reverse osmosis filtration systems, which commonly are used in whole-house water filter systems.
Tersano says the pitcher filter lasts through 365 gallons, for a per gallon cost of about 11 cents, much less expensive than most competitors. The LWT100 uses two containers â€“ a â€śprocessing carafeâ€ť and an optional â€śclean water carafeâ€ť for serving.
The clean-water carafe holds up to two quarts of water, and the filter replacement is about $40. We could not find any certification from independent groups such as the NSF for the Tersano pitcher.
