" Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans." Jacques Yves Cousteau

This quote..truly described the reality that we are in right now.. don't you think?


I bought my 8 stage hexagon - water purifier in August 2009.

but now, I'm no longer using it.

WHY??.. because it's broken already la...he...he..

My kids accidentally dropped in the sink several times, and it started leaking.
There was a comment from someone, if you do not wash the filter regularly it will leak...maybe its true. Because my brother bought the hexagon filtration system 2 also leaked, and he said he didn't drop it. I don't know.

Did any of you buy this product? Did you face the same problem?

Well, now I'm using PANASONIC TK-CS20. I bought this rather hastily, because I just got fed up at that time..

The price is around RM170 - RM180 I think. I bought it from Carrefour.

It does basic filtration only. You do need to boil your water to consume.

I really wish I bought PANASONIC PJ-37MRF Water Purifier instead.

4 levels of purification
Specially treated powdered activated carbon cartridge for highest performance
0.1 micron Ultrafiltration hollow fibre (recommended standard for bacteria filtration)
High purification capacity removing bacteria, turbidity, chlorine & odor

But, this model was not in Carrefour at that time. I notice some sites selling this on the internet. This model is better than the one I bought.

The price range RM350 - RM400.


Another brand is from COWAY. It's also a countertop type.

 Price range RM490


Another models from PANASONIC with good review are:

Well, it's really up to you. If you have the money you can get the better one.

I'm not into the MLM products because their filters are too pricey. But, I'm just saying..maybe one day I will bought one..I don't know. Some things just happened.

You said, you don't like these kind of stuff...but you end up liking it..or buying it in the know what I mean??

It is always safe to boil. cant always trust the filter that is near replacement or leaking... bacteria accumulation can be a the basic rm170 to remove most chlorine n residual w boiling is probably the best option.. or get the rm2000 panasonic one with multiple filtration n uv treatment or sthing like that. .. foolproof. He he I m more the 100% guarantee type...n nothing beats boiling...must commend u for being the concern is gold.. hv a good day..Hanz

I have just read your post about water filter. Panasonic water filter is good in filtering water, but the cartridge cannot be washed and need replacement often if the water is dirty. To solve this problem, I combined two water filters. You can read my post at click
