Trusting Every Drop from 3M Water Filter.

It was a couple months back that i had 3M installed at home. You can read all about it HERE. It was one of the best decisions i have ever made in my life. No doubt installing 3M has most definitely changed our water consumption for the better. Hence, i decided to do a in depth detailed review on how and why it has benefited my family.

It is an understatement when i express how filthy the water in my neighbourhood is. This may be caused by various factors such as construction happening in my area… but as a momma i would do whatever i can and whichever way i know how for the benefit of my family.


Upon installing 3M water filter and having used it for a couple of months now, i am able to confidently say that i can’t live without it! Installation was fast and easy and today i can honestly say that I have completely rely and trust the filtration provided by 3M water filter.

It has been so convenient that we occasionally drink directly (straight away) without boiling from 3M DWS2500T-CN model. This particular model and CTM-01 has a brilliant technology to prevent bacteria growth from inside filter. (YES.. bacteria growth occurs in filters that are not maintain well which leads to catching a bacteria infection/illness if and when our immune system is down). I love DW2500T-CN model most as it can filter bacteria up to 99.9% as per 3M has claimed.





The significance of before and after installing 3M water filter is extremely drastic for me and my family. Now washing clothes no longer stains as the water is now 100% clear (unlike before sometimes they come out brownish like Teh O’ colour and i have to wash them clothes 2-3x just to get the stains removed) and needless to say i am so much more at ease knowing that my family is drinking and even bathing in cleaner, clearer filtered water. Hence, skin sensitive issues i am 100% sure it is not coming from the water that we bath in.


There are so many water filters out there and honestly, with all the marketing and promotions offered from each company provided it is really hard to choose and to know which suits the family best… HOWEVER i am genuinely comfortable and thankful for coming across 3M Water Filtration. As i did my research and find out more about it.. i am grateful of how it has offered me and my family clean, clear tasting water at an affordable price. It is reliable and i can honestly say that i trust every single drop of water from 3M water filter. I would most certainly recommend my readers to have an open mind and do some research on choosing the best water filtration to suit for your family and should most definitely consider what 3M water filter have to offer if you need to have one fixed.

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for this informative guide.

    Can you please let me know what is the flow rate of this? From your pictures it appears to be very weak but it maybe because you have not turned the tap on full. What is the life of the filter?

    1. Hi there!
      The flow rate of the water is rather strong over at my place. However, i would suggest that you speak to the 3M technician as they can advice you further on the information you would like to know. Each filter has a different life span however it also depends on how dirty is your water. 😉 Hope you find the information useful.

  2. Hi, wanna ask, why u require two different type of 3M filter i.e. DWS2500T-CN and CTM-01. Are they the same and drink the water straight from these water filter.
