There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Upon reviewing my comment above, the company quickly contacted me by phone. Working with the Customer Support agent, Chris, I was able to determine that the major reason for the calcium deposits was caused by the instant-on hot water heater that supplies the entire house. It was a known problem that the UC-200 was never going to solve until I replaced the ten-year-old hot water unit. Nonetheless, they sent me an upgraded replacement filter which seems to be handling the problem quite well. I am REALLY impressed with the quick, no hassle and satisfactory response I got. Who ever heard of ANY company doing something like that?
I was, and remain, very impressed with the fact that the UC-200 worked as well as advertised in eliminating the odor and greatly improving the taste of our drinking water. No more Britta filters and pitchers for us.
Update 3/22/18: The company that produces this filter has been Extremely responsive and helpful thus far in making things right. Their commitment to providing superior customer service is evident as they contacted me prior to me having the opportunity to call them to discuss the issue. They clearly stand by their product and will continue to work with them so that hopefully this is an isolated incident and the root cause can be determined.
I e-mailed CuZn support suggesting that their already good instructions could be improved by including a diagnostic tip that low flow may be relieved by using the sprayer. In this age of lousy support I did this to vent. I didn't expect a response. Imagine my surprise when I checked my e-mail the very next evening and found a reply that included their updated instructions incorporating my suggestion, a nice personal message, and a small goodwill refund. CuZn are a class act.
I am all the more impressed because the uc-200 is class leading value, once properly installed had almost no impact on water flow, and our water tastes great. I have never before wished I could give more than 5 stars, but I'd give this purchase 10 stars if I could.
- The unit is about 18 inches tall by 5 inches in diameter (guessing) and is fairly heavy. So, under the sink installation is a bit tight. However, I will say that I was able to put it under the sink area with my slide out garbage and a disposal - so it's not THAT bad. Just need to keep that in mind.
- Instructions are minimal and it would actually be nice if they identified the "In" vs. "Out" flow on the unit itself, not just the instruction sheet.
- First, let me say that Cuzn's customer service is excellent and responsive.
- First unit I ordered came with an obvious defect in the brass connector. Aside from the defect, I was able to get this unit connected and working with no leakage (which was my concern).
- Between seeing the defect and connecting this unit, I did email Cuzn's support. They responded quickly asking for images of the damage. I sent the images. I informed them of having gotten the unit connected successfully and they still sent out a replacement, which I appreciated very much.
OK - Onto the product
- I own a coffee roasting business, so I am brewing and testing coffee on a regular basis. When I ran water through my $1000 coffee brewer, It left white residue anywhere it dried, the water was horrible. Installation of CuZn has resulted in a significant reduction (almost completely) of this. It is almost as if the water is being softened as well.
- Taste etc: The water taste like water...like NOTHING...the way it should. In fact, if I put my tap water up against this water, you can smell, see, and feel the difference. There is a huge difference in the feel of the water if you take a sip and swish it around in your mouth. Last, there is a massive difference in the chlorinated smell and overall taste. . My water is heavily chlorinated, but like I said - totally different smell between my regular tap and the water coming through the CuZn. You can also see a difference too. Although it's harder to recognize this, it just looks a bit more crystal clear than the regular glass of tap water.
- Setup: Easy peasy. I hate plumbing and dealing with it, so even though I hate that...I have to say that the setup was pretty painless.
Final: Clearly this gets my thumbs-up. In fact, I liked the results it had with my coffee flavor and coffee maker so much, I got a second unit and installed it in my kitchen and put a "drinking water" faucet on my sink, and installed a "T" to go to my ice maker. My ice cubes are significantly clearer and I have tossed my brita jug away and sold the filters on craigslist.
Perhaps some day they'll make a 55 gallon drum version that I can install in-line from my main.
