Soma Eco-friendly Water Filtering System Review

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


While I may love most of the things about my home, it has terrible tasting water. Everyone here agrees that the water has to be filtered or it tastes truly terrible. You would practically think you were drinking water directly from the Ohio river – yuck! Since our water tastes so gross, I am constantly trying different filtering systems. I have found that while some are inexpensive, they just don’t filter the water enough for my liking, and others that do cost so much that they are impractical for us. As I was on my search for a new water filter, I approached by Soma, asking if I would like to review their elegant, eco-friendly but inexpensive water filtering system. After reading a bit about them on their website, I said yes, curious to see how their system worked with our own water issues.

Soma: What is It

Looking for a water filtering system that is truly eco-friendly and good for the environment? If so, we are excited to introduce you to Soma. Unlike other water filtering system, this glass carafe is made is made from blown glass in Germany (some of the best glass in the world), and filters using coconut shell-sourced carbon, 4 layers of silk, and a plant based filter casing, making the filtering system truly biodegradable. Best of all, the water tastes absolutely amazing.  As well, you can have a new filter sent straight to your home every two months, allowing you to have great water your whole family will love year-round. With its unique and eye-pleasing design aesthetics, you will even be happy to have your water filter noticed at parties or make it a practical table centerpiece for the entire family.

Soma: Overall

Out of all the water filtering systems I have tried, the Soma has to be the easiest-to-use canister I have seen yet. You don’t need to have the carbon sitting for quite any length of time like most others I have used. Just run it under cold water until it looks clear and you are good to go. Best of all, it looks beautiful and works quickly. I was a bit skeptical with how quickly it worked, but everyone in house agreed that the water tasted great. So far, I am sold on the Soma and can’t wait to see how it lasts for my family, especially with how we are both trying to drink more water. Based on my own experience with the Soma, I am happy to give this elegant looking and effective filtering system an A+ rating!

    What a fascinating filtration system. I am going to have to look into it as our current system is kind of expensive.

    I have neither seen nor heard of a system like this, the review was interesting.

    I’ve never been one for filtered water, but with all sorts of nasty things floating around in there I might need this!

    What size is the carafe? And how does it compare to the Brita system? My water is soft, yet has a lot of calcium in it, so all water going into the coffee maker and the Tassimo get filtered. Yes, the Tassimo has a filter but at 7$ each, I filter the water with a less expensive method first. No bottled water for this house! 🙂

      From what I have seen, it holds about 8 cups of water 🙂 I know the water tastes MUCH better than the Brita water from my sisters filter.
