Have been using this system in RV past three years. Good filtration, relatively easy to install, initial price lower than other systems. Longevity appears to depend on quality of water supply, amount of water usage, and success in flushing the cartridge. For my wife and I, the cartridge water flow slows after about 40 days of actual use. Too bad the entire cartridge must be tossed at end of life. I wish the manufacturer would offer "cartridge only" as an option and reduce price since hose connection basically remains viable. This system may not be cost effective for full-timers.

EDIT ADDED: Some of the subsequent reviews reference leaks occurring specific to the use of this cartridge. The cartridge does not leak but if the hose is kinked or bent for any reason, the likelihood of a leak increases. This seems to occur because of limited space to place the cartridge at the faucet or near or in the RV forcing a hose to bend to fit. The flex hose extension helps but does not always solve the problem. Keeping the hose as straight as possible helps. I also keep a good supply of new, real rubber washers on hand to replace at connections that appear to be an issue. Maybe it just helps me feel better, but I think it helps. I see hoses leaking with or without the cartridge.

I purchased two of the taste pure water filters; but not for use with an RV. I use one to fill my pool to keep rust out of it and the other to wash our cars to reduse the mineral deposit spots. I haven't used it for the pool yet but the one for washing the cars works great. It makes the car care products work much better and my auto glass has never been cleaner and my wax as you dry product leave a better sheen than with unfiltered water.

I tested before and after with a water quality kit. Unfortunately, this only removed about 1/2 the chlorine, leaving a substantial amount.

I used a tds meter to test the water from this filter, because I intended to use it for hydroponics, and needed to get as much chlorine out  the water as possible. Much to my surprise and disappointment, it didn't test much differently than tap water. 

I contacted the company before writing this review because I thought maybe I had a faulty filter. I so wanted this filter to work like the many positive reviewers said it would.

I received a responses almost immediately from two of their engineers explaining the KDF filtration system.  I researched the KDF system online, and am convinced that for the money, this is the best filter out there for removing chemicals. The minerals I am not concerned about, and my plants can use them. 

Just be aware that with this technology you will not get an accurate reading on a tds meter, but you will get quality filtered water at a very reasonable price, along with outstanding company support. This company stands behind their products.

I bought this for use outdoors to filter my garden hose water while homebrewing. The results in taste and chlorine smell are very noticeable in the water and the batch of beer turned out very well. I believe the water changes were key.

This has improved the taste and quality of the water in every campground I've gone to since getting it. Be sure and rinse it out before you use it the first time till it stops running black and then it works great. It is also a good place to put your pressaure regulator so you won't forget it like I did.

I have been using this filter on a cruising boat for the last 3 years. The water varies alot from Florida to the Bahamas and the filter always provides consistent clear and odor free water.

I just installed this on a spigot in my horse barn and I'm impressed already! The house water is taken care of with a water system, but the barn water always had iron in it. The iron got worse since the pressure tank was replaced in the house to the point where water was cloudy brown with sediment floating in i! Had a water company come out and test the water, said the barn water is fine for the horses but if we wanted to get all the iron out of it we'd have to replace/upgrade the system in the house to the tune of $2600. Also said this sometimes happens when a pressure tank is replace, it may or many not settle in a few months. So I went and put one of these little filters on the spigot, figure for $15 it was worth the shot. Granted it probably isn't taking all the iron out, but at least the water is clear now and no chunks of sediment floating around! I made my husband taste the water after I put the filter on (LOL), he said it still has a metallic taste to it.... but oh well, makes me feel better that my horses are at least drinking clear water with not so much iron in it now. Attached is before and after photo of the water.
