As another reviewer noted it is a bit of a struggle to change the cartridge but that has a lot to do with where the unit is mounted. I have two of these units, one was already installed in a house I bought and I had the other installed in a condo. The one in the house is at the back of the cabinet under the sink and it is a bear to change. The other I had put up front and it's not bad at all. For one thing you must follow the instructions to the letter when changing the cartridge. If you do, it won't be hard and it won't leak. There is a little stick-on alarm device that tells you when to change the cartridge. Throw that away, it's purpose is to sell more cartridges. The cartridge needs replacing when the flow gets slow. Mine last a year or more (2 people). Also, ask you plumber which system he or she recommends. Mine thinks highly of Everpure.

Since bottled drinking water 1) costs about 10.00 a gallon if you factor in the environmental costs.and 2) is mostly manufactured by soft drink companies???? I took the plunge and had this unit installed. I did read reviews and made sure the unit was put toward the front of my kitchen cabinet for easy replacement changes. But I am a woman and have had no issues with it at all. Great tasting water...at a low environmental impact.

I had this at my old house, so I bought another when we moved. For the amazon price, and the quality of the water that comes out of it, you'd be silly not to buy it. It supposedly comes with everything you need, but surprisingly comes with some dumb tee fitting that's supposed to branch off from the water supply to your filter that, as far as I know, doesn't fit any standard 1/2" pipe fitting from the water supply in any normal American household. Buy some other adaptor (AND the dedicated water filter faucet) before you crack all the connections under the sink!

The unit works fine but it a devil to install if you don't like squatting or bending over and sitting in an awkward position while attempting to install the cartridge. I didn't pull the lever down completely to turn the water off for installation and I had water gushing all over my kitchen. If you do it properly, it is over in a jiffy. I have a water softener system which causes the Everpure to be used up much more quickly, so that is a problem too. I'm replacing this cartridge after just four months of use with two people.

I've been using this system for 7 years and the water tastes great. However, I had an extremely bad experience upon replacing the filter with a new one that I recently purchased on Amazon - the filter "seemed" to be on right even though it wasn't very tight, but then it popped off in the middle of the night and flooded my kitchen and the condo below me. It was a real nightmare that hit just before the XMAS holiday and will always be associated with the sound of my doorbell ringing (which was my downstairs neighbor letting me know that water was flowing through her walls and ceilings). Several plumbers concurred that the problem was probably due to the filter not being installed right, "since they are tricky to install and you have to make sure you do that second turn."

Soon afterwards, the filter developed a constant drip from the top and (since it was an old system anyway) I decided to replace it with a brand new system. As you can imagine, I was in complete shock this morning when the plumber himself couldn't get the BRAND NEW filter on the BRAND NEW system without it feeling "loose" and leaking just like the old one did! (And I had made sure to get a plumber who said he's installed many of these filters before!) The plumber had to try FIVE times before getting the cartridge on right (at which point I was pretty close to saying goodbye to water filter systems for good and going back to lugging water jugs up my stairs each week). Even though it now seems to be securely installed and not leaking, the plumber recommended that I write to Everpure to replace the filter, which he thinks may be defective.

After all this, of course I am still very paranoid that something will go wrong so at least for a while I will be turning the water off each time I go to bed or leave the house. That is not a very secure feeling to have about my water filter system!!!

After reading these reviews, I'm surprised the filter system head has not been redesigned to make it easier to replace the filters properly or to know for sure when the filter is on right. Believe me, the damage can be catastrophic if the filter pops off like mine did because the water pressure is so high! It only just a few minutes to flood my kitchen and dining room and cause over $20K damage to the floors, walls and ceilings in my condo and the one below me....and it would have been so much worse if I had not been home when it happened!

If I could, I would switch to a fridge water filter/dispenser system, but for now (since the size of refrigerator I need in my kitchen doesn't come with a water dispenser), and there doesn't seem to be too many alternatives (the Bodyglove is made by the same company and the filters cost more; the Costco brand requires an electrical outlet below the sink), I am giving the Everpure system another chance....I just wish they would make the cartridges easier to install!!!

Explore alternatives before buying this system. Although the cartridge lasts longer than others, it is very difficult for a person to replace, especially a woman or older man. The company makes it sound so easy, just insert and turn 1/4. You don't know you have it in right until you turn it on and then after 30 seconds of water running, it falls off and water is all over the cabinet. It's inexpensive compared to a whole house system, but I wish I had a whole house system instead of fighting with the cartridge when I need to replace it. Once in place, the filter does do an excellent job of removing bad water taste. If you're a handyman and able to maneuver under sinks, this will serve you fine. I am very frustrated at how hard this filter is to insert exactly right. It's not easy doing it by yourself and your neck and arms will ache from trying to get it in.

I'm a regular guy who can do some DIY projects. I don't understand why many say this filter was hard to install. It's very easy. The only thing is that when it tells you to hand-tighten the elbow fittings (part that connects the hose to the filter)I would take a wrench and tighten it down more just one more turn. Also, make sure you cut the hose at 90 degrees and shove the hose to the fittings real nice. The only semi-hard part was that my water valve was 1/2 so I converted it to a dual valve that has both a 3/8 (for the filter adapter) and 1/2 (for the hose connected to the cold water faucet). Water taste so good! If you ever need help, just email me and I can help you step by step. I bought a separate drinking faucet from faucets direct.com for $40.

Btw, everpure is the brand many fast food and restaurants use for filtering. Ever wonder why McDonalds coke taste so good? They use Everpure!

One of these things is in the house I am renting. The cheap plastic fittings on the head unit leaked like crazy. Fix one leak, and another one starts. Teflon tape, epoxy putty. You name it. Nothing works. I had to disconnect the whole darn thing just to keep the cabinet under the sink from rotting away.

I almost did not buy this system due to some of the negative reviews. It pisses me off how incompetent people are so quick to write negative reviews and blame products simply because they can't follow instructions.

Love this thing. My already decent city water tastes amazing.

Set up up is easy, if you can follow instructions. The tubing needs to be trimmed straight across and pushed all the way into the connectors. The filter needs to be turned all the way to the right until it stops. Once water pressure is applied the filter will seat all the way and no longer move around.

I purchased the filter for $100 and the filter receptacle for $40 on amazon. One trip to Homedepot and $20 later I had all the push connectors and tubing I needed to install it. Also, Homedepot has a faucet that works great for $18.

This unit works very well - water tastes fine now. Highly recommended. I don't know why others had trouble screwing on the filter/having leaks - as directions say, mount it close to front of cabinet for easy access... you can put under sink stuff behind it (it's only about 3" diameter) and you won't have to pull everything out to change filter (which I haven't had to do after one year so far).
