DuPont WFFM350XCH Electric Metered 200-Gallon Review
Many people have bought a PUR or Brita faucet filter and had bad results, so they never buy another filter again. There are many other good brands out there and DuPont has been known to be one of the best brands in whole house filtration systems. As well as under sink faucet filtration systems.
When it comes to faucet water filters DuPont seems to have the same issues as many other brands, which is leaking problems. The life of the filter is long with 200 gallons of water before having to be replaced or about 6 months. Whereas most PUR filters require you to replace them after 2-3 months.
The water taste is crisp and clean and many say it tastes better than the other name brand filters. The new PUR filters use charcoal and give off a charcoaly flavor to the water. The DuPont filter does not uses a Microban Antimicrobial water filter.
Inside the DuPont filter
DuPont uses Microban Antimicrobial filtration which is smilar to there design for the larger home filtration filters. It stops the growth of bacteria and is rated by the NSF/ANSI standard 53 to remove lead, atrazine, lindane, as well as cysts, bacteria and viruses.
This Microban material gives the water a distinctly unique taste and does a good job of removing many harmful bacteria and organisms. This style of filter also has the added benefit of increasing the water flow. The filter life is good at 200 gallons nearly tripple the life of other filters and the price is reasonable for the fitlers.

What Do The Customers Have To Say?
Overall most people are happy with this unit. The biggest complaint is that after several months it begins to leak and the display may malfunction. From my experience almost every faucet water filter has the potential for leaks if the water pressure is not properly maintained. The digital sensor buring out is another problem for most faucets. Either the bad can die or the unit gets water inside and the circuit board breaks.
To be honest I like the unique filtration method that DuPont uses. The design is stylish and has a nice looking readout display screen. This is one of the more high end models, so you need to tread it as such. Don’t let the water flow out too quickly from the faucet and you should be fine. Overall I say this is a 8/10. Losing 2 point for the fact that many people have leak and sensor malfunctions.
