Consumer Reports: best water filters

(WMC TV) - These are the top-rated water filters according to the tests of Consumer Reports:

* CULLIGAN, FAUCET-MOUNTED ($15). Rated "excellent" for removing lead and other contaminants, but criticized for a slow flow rate.

* CLEAR2O, PITCHER/CARAFE ($15). Rated "excellent," quicker flow.

Consumer Reports gave high marks for several reverse osmosis filters, but its tests revealed those filters are cost-prohibitive and waste a considerable amount of water.
