Good product, good price

We had our handyman install the filter, which he said was easy. It works very well, water pressure is good, and after running water through it first for a few minutes, the filters kicked in. The water tastes markedly better than from the regular tap, and looks cleaner. Plus, the separate spout swivels slightly to get out of the way. The biggest issue with this filter is the lack of information on sears.com about replacement cartridges. Order replacements #34373 and #38480.

The faucet on this filter has problems.

The problem with this filter is the faucet connection with the sink. It uses 2 toogle bolts to attach to the sink and they will not stay tight Finally one of the holes on the faucet broke and I had to replace the faucet after one year. When I replaced it I I found that both toogle bolts had rusted and were also ready to break. I replaced the faucet with one manufactored by Ecodyne that I bought at *****. It has a single threaded shaft of brass that is both the water intake and the fastener for washers that cover both sides of the 1 1/4 hole on the sink. Everything is brass so there is no rusting. I like this filter but you will eventually replace the faucet.

Inexpensive drinking water

Was looking for simple but fairly good filter system and this fit the bill ,so I was not paying a lot of money buying filtered water and the water tastes fine

Happy I purchased tihs filter.

Great filtered water. I use it many times every day and am completely happy with the taste. Easy unit to install too. Delivery of the filter was quick and excellent. My only complaint is the water flow. Much too fast. My last filters had a flow restrictor built in to control the flow of water through the filter. These filters apparently lack that feature. Therefore, when I next replace the filter cartridges, I will look for ones with a flow restrictor. Otherwise, excellent filter.

Good filter & faucet

|

The filter housing and faucet are both very good and reasonably easy to install, but the included water supply fitting has no valve and attaches to the faucet behind the sink (awkward). I highly recommend getting a fitting with a built-in valve, such as a John Guest ASVPP2LF, which will sit on top of the existing water supply valve and make a very clean installation.
