We had this filter for a little over a month now. The water taste excellent and don't have a problem with the slow fill or anything. I'm thinking it's because we have high water pressure, but it filters out the chlorine plus other impurities than the Brita, Bobble, and even Pur that we had. Overall, our house hold is drinking more water which is better for us. We definitely recommend this to anyone who wants an excellent filter while saving on cost.

I've had this product for over a year now and the water flow has never gone above a drip. I called the assistance line once and they recommended taking the filters out and putting them back in, which made no difference. The person on the phone then said they didn't have any other solutions. I haven't had time to deal with it so I've just continued using a pitcher filter since I don't have all day to leave a container under the filter faucet to collect enough water to be usable. I finally went to change the filters today to see if that would solve the problem, and I cannot get the A filter out. There's a recommendation to use the B filter to loosen it, which I've done, and even tried pliers, but half an hour and three cuts from the sharp edges of the casing later, it is still stuck. I was considering getting a shower filter because the water in my building is so bad, but if this is the quality I can expect I won't be purchasing another product.

    Comments about Aquasana Countertop Water Filter - White:

    Bought this filter for $3 at a local thrift store, unused. That was 3 years ago. The water has slowed significantly but still comes out clean tasing & smelling. This is signifacnt because we get "notices" in the mail about every other month stating that our water has "surpassed" safe chem level testing at the municiple water plant & "could cause cancer". No worries here because I have a great water filter. We are just now ordering a new filter due to reduced output flow rate.

    Comments about Aquasana Countertop Water Filter - White:

    I've used this product for 3 years. The water filter is easy to install initially and changing filters is pretty much a snap, although you may have trouble unscrewing the filter cartridge cap - too much force can damage the cap and you may have to use a wrench.

    Water flow is okay when the filter is new but decreases significantly halfway throught the 450 gal cycle. Speaking of which, the cost of using this is quite higher particularly if you live in NYC, as I do. The older pipes require a recommended diverter filter. The replacement filters are pricey and add significantly to the yearly cost. If you don't use these, your filter life decreases significantly requiring constant replacement.

    Furthermore 4 adults consuming 1 gallon a day (you may use this for cooking also) or more means that your yearly water use hovers around 1500 gallons or more. You will have to replace the filters more that twice a year - do the math. You can go with the 6 month replacement recommended, but again, longer use of the filter results in flow decreasing to a trickle so the cost of use more than doubles.

      Comments about Aquasana Countertop Water Filter - White:

      We had two units, for shower and the kitchen. I didn't use it for a while, the house was closed for months, about a year ago, so I purchased the new housing for the kitchen sink, not only the replacement cartridges, and it worked fine, very satisfactory. However, new cartridges are due and I have tried just about everything as per instruction leaflet, simple indeed, over and over, but it leaks, leaks and leaks, it is impossible to use it, very frustrating, and I do not know what to do with it.

            Filter clogs quick, then very slow pour.
            Excelent tasting water, replacing filters every 6 month makes it affortable for the superior quality of filtration you get.

                  Comments about Aquasana Countertop Water Filter - White:

                  I have been a customer since 2005ish. When I bought the product, i did the research first and found that this unit was the most reasonably priced for what it does. We bought it, installed it to the faucet, and I've been hooked ever since. The quality of the water is far above what a Britta can filter. With a Britta, you can still taste chlorine. I've NEVER tasted chlorine from this unit, even when I was not very studious about changing the filters.
                  The design of the unit is okay. It can be a little difficult at times to unscrew the filter covers and I have broken the tabs in the past and was unable to unscrew the filter lid. Then I started using plyers and have had no problem since. The one thing that I do occasionally have an issue with is the tab on the faucet connection will stop auto clicking off. I purchased the water for life program and this has saved me from having to rebuy the faucet connection. You call, tell them what's wrong and it's in the mail and to your home quickly.
                  I would highly recommend purchasing the water for life program. the filters just come in the mail every 6m and you don't have to think about the last time you changed the filter. Because we have the program, we've probably replaced the entire unit at least one time over just from normal wear and tear without having to purchase a new unit. Literally so easy if something goes wrong with the unit. You call, tell them what's wrong and then the part is mailed to you in days. It's really nice.
                  Overall, I love the filter. Have told many of my friends about it and have started giving the counter unit as wedding gifts. I'm hooked and will be a customer for life.

                        I just received two units of the aq-4000 countertop water filter.

                        I was going to proceed with installation, but there is a message in the device that states: "This appliance is intended for cold water use only, Hot water contact may void warranty"...

                        And I bought this product basically, to put it over my sink to wash my face every night with warm water. So I am thinking if I will return the product or no.

                                Handy to use. Works great - the water tastes like water. Period. I did a LOT of research and comparison shopping for filters. This one has great specs and is very affordable. I guess some folks can gripe at little things, but here is reality: A lot of the filters out there don't remove as much as this one, and if they do, they cost several times more. It gives me good water at a fair price. That is hard to beat. And to top it off, they have great service.
