I purchased this item a couple of weeks ago.

The GOOD NEWS: I was very happy with the look of it, and I liked the feature that when you are using it for purification it automatically switches back to the main tap when you shut off the water stream. The Power Sprayer feature is also nice. It sprays water with more force than my kitchen sink's hose and really blasts items clean!

The BAD NEWS: Determining which adapter (Metric vs. Imperial) to use is an iffy thing. (I discovered that my Moen faucet did better with the grey, metric adapter.) But the worst part is that neither screw on deeply/tightly enough, nor have the rigidity of hold to keep the entire unit on. As soon as I turned on the water, the entire unit blasted off! A couple of times of this and I lost the black washer the goes inside the adapter down the garbage disposal. (Note to self: Stopper up the sink when next I try putting anything on the faucet!) Without this washer, water will squirt EVERYWHERE no matter how tightly you try to screw it on to the faucet with the included plastic turning tool.

Since only ONE appropriate washer is in the package, I had to go to Lowe's and Home Depot to find a washer to replace this one. After trying several "hard' gaskets, and some O-rings. I finally found a rough replacement for the washer with an Aerator Repair Kit. Unfortunately, the washer wasn't ideal and although I was able to get a few days of decent use from the unit, it unexpectedly "blasted off" again one night when I simply turned on the tap.

RESOLUTION: I sent two e-mails to Instapure Customer Service one night over the 4th of July weekend and followed up with a call on Tuesday morning when they opened for business out in Colorado.

[[VIDEOID:mo14A13LH24BCQW]]Ive gone through a few sink faucet filters - I think this is my third one (maybe fourth). This one fills the glass the fastest, and the veggie washer setting is a nice plus and is super powerful. And the filter is cool looking. There's nothing I can say bad about it (yet). I've had it for about 2 months, and so far it's just great!

I have had this filter about 2 weeksago. I bought it after a series of PUR filters that managed to leak from places I would have thought impossible. So far, so good with this one. Installation was really easy. 5 minutes. I like the extra "pressure" setting.

UPDATED REVIEW 3/2013:
After more than a year with this filter system, I am back to report that it has not gone well. You can see below in my original review that we really wanted to believe in this filter system. But, I've had to replace the faucet mount twice due to leakage, and about 1 out of 3 filters do not filter good enough to remove bad taste. Instapure customer service is very nice, and sends replacements but it is inconvenient to be out of filtered water waiting for the replacement to arrive.

The problem we have been having is that the faucet mount leaks profusely, so it runs hot water through the filter when the filter is turned off, and the water slowly starts tasting unfiltered. It also leaks so that it lets by unfiltered water by in the filter position.

A shame, we really liked the water when this filter was working properly. Maybe the other model works better? Dunno, we are not going to waste any more time with it.

We have decided on a ispring 6 stage reverse osmosis filter (we went with 6 stage because reviewers indicated hot water coming out when the UV filter 7 stage system was used). At 200+ it is more money, but in the long term the replacement filters cost less per year than a faucet mount and the system is more reliable (based on current reviews).

PREVIOUS REVIEW:

Overall, we love this filter. As far as faucet mounted filters go, it is by far the best out there. But we did have one major gripe. Please read below:

To start, we did the research and this brand has the best filtration. Go to the website and read the long list of contaminants it filters, very impressive. The filtered water has no odor and no bad taste. THE WATER TASTES GREAT.

After trying the Culligan FM-15A, I decided it was time to invest in a different water filtration system. I chose this filter because it filters out every pathogen, chemical, and harmful mineral that I could think of... plus more that I wasn't even aware of! Heres what I thought of the unit:

Pros:
-Filters out everything you would want
-Easy to install
-Filter can be replaced in 3 seconds, without taking apart the unit
-Comes in white, or chrome finish to match your faucet. Aesthetically pleasing
-Filtered water comes out at a good volume(Not a trickle like other purifyers)
-Automatically turns off filter setting when you turn off faucet
-Inexpensive to start. Filter price is reasonable.

Cons:
-There is a filter life indicator that is suppose to flash green until its time to replace. It seams to flash once every 5 mins. Im not sure if this is a defect or intentional. Iv reset the indicator light a few times without change.

Other than the inconsistant indicator light, im very pleased with the unit. I plan to ignore the indicator light(unless it blinks red) until three months is up, at which point I will change the filter. My last filter lost water pressure after a few weeks, so Im hoping this can fair better. Ill update this review if anything changes in the future. Thanks!
