InSinkErator F-601R lifestyle shot
InSinkErator's filtration system lets you forgo plastic water bottles and rely on tap water to be the primary source for drinking, cooking and preparing hot beverages.
Why Filtration?
Consuming water is an important part of our daily lives, considering it makes up about 70 percent of our body weight. While it is reported that a healthy person can live without food for weeks, a person can only survive a few days without water.

The United States offers its citizens one of the safest water supplies in the world. Even so, many consumers are using home purification systems to help ensure the best tasting and safest water for drinking and cooking. In addition, others are consuming bottled water for reasons of both convenience and safety.

As for safety, many people throughout the country have no qualms about drinking tap water due to regular testing and monitoring by government agencies to ensure it is safe. Drinking water can reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. As long as those contaminants are at levels no higher than EPA standards, the water is considered safe to drink for healthy people. There are also cases where water may go unchecked. Many homes are on private wells, not municipal water, and therefore have no EPA regulation.

But numerous consumers still seek cleaner, better tasting water, as evidenced by the billions spent on bottled water each year. And because of recent reports that some bottled water supplies come from municipal water - not pristine water sources as promoted - coupled with questions about the safety of the plastic used in many water bottles and their environmental impact, consumers are left wondering what other options exist.

With an InSinkErator hot/cool water dispenser, the need for bottled water becomes obsolete, as it delivers filtered drinking water directly from the tap. Other instant hot water dispenser environmental benefits include:

  • Water savings compared to other methods - Uses only what's needed, zero water waste
  • Improved water quality with filtration - Reduces a variety of contaminants
  • Energy efficient - Heats water at the source, no energy waste
Easy to Replace
The InSinkErator F-601R Filter Cartridge makes replacement easy. A simple twist is all it takes!

A 6-12 month time span is recommended for filter cartridge replacement (it is recommended that all carbon filters be replaced within 12 months), and the filter system automatically shuts off water when the filter cartridge is being replaced.

This system is ideal for use virtually anywhere filtered water is needed, such as with ice makers and refrigerators.

My problem was deciding whether to choose the 201R or the 601R filter. The 201 is compliant with NSF standard 42, and the 601 is standard 42 and standard 53 compliant. What does that mean?...see below text from NSF website. What I take away from the explanation is that standard 42 is aesthetic (non health related) while standard 52 means lead and many other nasty things are filtered. Although the 601 is 2x the price of the 201, the health benefits are significant, whereas the 201 doesn't seem to have any health benefits. I'd rather spend $55 for a filter that actually accomplishes something than $26 for a filter that doesn't seem to do anything. You decide and let me know what you think.

Two NSF standards cover filtration systems: NSF/ANSI 42 addresses aesthetic claims and NSF/ANSI 53 addresses health claims.

NSF/ANSI Standard 42: Drinking Water Treatment Units - Aesthetic Effects

NSF/ANSI Standard 42 establishes the minimum requirements for the certification of POU/POE filtration systems designed to reduce specific aesthetic or non-health-related contaminants (chlorine, taste, odor and particulates) that may be present in public or private drinking water.

The scope of NSF/ANSI 42 includes material safety, structural integrity and aesthetic, non-health-related contaminant reduction performance claims. The most common technology addressed by this standard is carbon filtration.

My 1984 home has lead soldered copper plumbing, and we are part of a set of high-risk homes the water utility tests each year for lead content. Our home usually tests above the EPA 90th percentile level for lead content, and even though that is still not a "hazardous" amount according to the EPA, we feel better not drinking or cooking with the water straight from the tap. This filter removes about 99.99999999999999% of everything nasty, and the water is fresh and tasty. The filters are expensive, but we only need to replace them every six months. That equates to less than $10/month for super-clean water and better peace of mind. They are easy to replace, and my local recycling facility accepts them for recycling (call ahead, always!). My InSinkerator instant hot/cold + filter system is new (2009 model), and I've never had a problem with installing these filters. We first had the F-201R model (came with the filter system) before switching to F-601R for the add'l lead filtration, and I had no problem installing this filter.

Strongly considered buying this over the less expensive F201r filter. However, after researching the quality of my tap water via the local utility (which was available online) and comparing it to the specs of the F601r, I realized that none of the extra stuff that the F601r filters out is actually in my tap water. The one possible exception is lead, but it's a newer home in California which already mandates low lead levels in residential plumbing. If you have an older home, it may be very worthwhile since corrosion in the plumbing can lead to leaching, but otherwise you really have to ask yourself whether it's necessary.

So, 1 star for scare tactics averaged with 5 stars b/c I'm sure it works fine in systems designed for it (like the less expensive F201r) gives us 3 stars overall. I prefer not to have money scared out of my wallet!

Recommend instead of the original F-201R filter or the prior F-501R filter.
We replace the filter every 6 months.

When we are not at home we miss the convenience of the hot water (about 200 degrees) and cold water from the InSinkerator Hot Water Dispenser.

I replaced the previous 201 cartridge with this 601 cartridge. I was surprised to find out that this cartridge is longer than the 201 by a few inches. So, if your installation is space-challenged, you might want to verify fit before ordering.

Yes, the F-601 costs roughly double the F-201 filter. It also last 12 months, instead of 6 months, so on a cost per month basis it is the same, roughly $10 per month. As a bonus, the F-601 is supposed to filter out additional harmful contaminates. I use the F-601 because I have to change it less often. I don't spend much time looking under my sink to check the expiration date, so if I bought the 6 month one, it would probably get changed every nine months anyway... Please be aware that the F-601 is longer than the F-201, so make sure you have room to install it, including the extra 2 inches or so to get the filter in and out of the plastic filter body mounted to the wall.

This filters more elements than the standard filter does. We use our Hot Water Dispenser daily and value the good quality water it provides
