Simple and works great! Have had this filter for three years and it consistently goes for over a year with great tasting water before I need to change the cartridge. I compared this to many counter top units and found it to be a great value for the money and after three years it seems to still have maintained it's value....more info
Excellent Way cheaper than some of the other models. Stands up to frequent use, easy to use, doesn't leak or make a mess. Tastes great (and I'm extremely paticular). Better than pitcher filters because I don't have to keep feeling them up. Better than pur filter faucet attachment because it doesn't get loose when I turn it on. Downsides - mildly difficult to set up for someone who has never worked with plumbing, had to call the manufacturer and it took a couple of days for them to get back to me, you have to request testing results (why don't they just post them on the internet?). Overall very pleased....more info
Good filter (they have been tested!) The 10-stage filter was easy to install -- I purchased with the under the counter adapter -- and seems to work well (only had for 1 month). Addressing other comments: 1) The lid was not tight enough when I purchased and I had to tighten by hand. All filter manufacturers have this problem and you should always tighten the lid/filter assembly before installation. 2) They are tested/certified and they will send you an email copy of their testing with Truesdale Labs (unfortunately they do not use NSF International so you don't get the nice sticker on the package saying they are "certified"). However they have exceeded NSF standards according to the report: they test new filters and filters after 1525 gallons of tap water. They test for NSF standard 53 (health -- cyst removal), lead, chloroform, and lindane. They did not respond to my online question and were not available the first two times I called, but I did finally get through and was emailed the lab test reports. 3) As with any plastic plumbing fitting... use lots of teflon tape if you don't want leaks. 4) Almost all other filters require filter replacements every 6 months and chlorine removal is the first thing to go bad... but this is mostly a taste concern and not a health concern. If you get 4 months on the filter that's about what you would have gotten with e.g. Culligan too if you are really senstive to taste. Good product and great price! ...more info
Not worth it I have owned this unit for 2 years. The water seems OK and definitely better than from the tap. However, every 4 months or so we have to change the filter because we start to have a chlorine taste coming back. The replacement cartridges are very expensive. There is a little knob on the faucet that you pull to switch from tap to filter, and this knob recently has broken off. We cannot seem to access the company's website to get a replacement part. I am thinking to get a different water filter system altogether. I would not buy again. (Also, I have had lots of problems with their water bottles...leakage, breaking, etc. I won't buy any product from this company again.)...more info
Water tastes great The water from this filter always tastes great and it is easy to hook up. I would give it five stars except it occasionally drips water from where the base meets the top. However, it just takes a little patience to get it on right....more info
Best Water Filter on the Market I love the 10 Stage Water Filter and considering friends who own different brands, I find the 10 Stage to be the best. The water tastes great, and the company will remind you when it is time to replace the filter. Replacement is dependent on the number of members in the family and can vary from 12 to 18 months...better than the 2 or 3 months of other filters. I highly recommend this water filter system....more info
Where is the NSF certification? Interesting that the description invokes EPA standards, but fails to mention if the unit is NSF certified. It's the least any vendor of drinking water filters can do.
Inferior Product The only thing this unit filtered was the money from my wallet. Filtration is less effective than an ordinary Brita pitcher. I even purchased a TDS meter (which checks the amount of particles in your water) and found that my suspicions were correct. The Brita pitcher outscores this unit! Emails to the manufacturer were ignored. Do yourself a favor and stick with a Brita or go one step further and get an under-the-sink unit for $100 more than this piece of garbage. Clean water is so important to your health. Spend the money if you can....more info
great filter, great price! I have owned this filter for many years and I have to say it is great. I have owned others that were good to just as good, but because of the price, this one beats them out!...more info
