This water filter is just amazing. The water tastes great. My family had been buying alkaline water in plastic bottles for a long time. While the water tasted better than regular bottled water, we were unhappy that we were buying all that plastic. So we splurged (though it will pay for itself in a few months since we aren't buying plastic anymore) and put in this system. I was nervous about installing it by myself, but I just took it slow, read every direction five times, and did the installation with some help from my kids. (Pretty proud of myself!)
The water is great! Better tasting than the plastic bottled alkaline we had been drinking. We all have our own metal water bottles now, and just fill them up. My kids are drinking more water and so am I. I'll be interested to see what the filters look like when I replace them in a year.
Some people wrote in reviews that the water comes out of the faucet slowly with a lack of pressure, and that an upgrade to 3/8" tubing might necessary. We went with the standard 1/4" tubing that comes with the filter. The sink faucet is small, but it works well. The water pressure is good and we have no complaints.
