Used mine for a couple of weeks now. Some niggles. Not overly happy with the little lid over the spout which sometimes fails to open thus creating a 'flare' of water which in turn goes over the edges of the tank when topping up. The whole top lid assembly itself doesn’t seat as well as I would have liked. It doesn’t fit my fridge door (I think it was mentioned it would).

I will been monitoring its effectiveness. 

Plus point, it is slim and nicely balanced. It is going to save on waste plastic. Being an early bird it was cheap and overall I’m glad I went for it.

What is its capacity & how long does it take to filter that?

It’s about 1.2ltrs and takes less than 5 minutes (I haven’t timed it).

Positive that it doesn’t take longer than that.

A clear improvement over older solution where you literately could wait 15min.

 

1.2l capacity is fine, thats what I use on a single day.

Interesting that others have the lid issue too. 

It's 1.2L and according to the manual takes 3-4 minutes on setting 4 - the lower the setting the faster it is I suspect.

The bypass system is so simple I am impressed. I did wonder / hope that the bypassed water still receives some filtration to prevent any scale getting into the water, it looks like there is something in there and it isn't a straight through hole so assume so.  

Initial impressions were a brighter cup with a more minerally taste, in a good way. Espresso was still fine at the point it was dialled in but it was slower through the chemex, might have to dial back a notch.

For the water crew is there a good source to get more test strips, or perhaps more accurate water tests?

I see them on ebay / amazon but dont really want 50 and not sure id trust their accuracy.

I want some too but like you, I want reliable/rated ones.
