I had been an Aquasana customer for more than 5 years when I decided to buy the whole house filtration system. Between great tasting water out of every faucet to filtered showers with whatever head I chose - I cannot imagine going back to unfiltered water.

We are very happy with the Aquasana whole house water filtering system. Our experience with an under the sink as well as shower system in our previous home was very positive, and switching to the whole house system actually is not much more expensive over a 5 year period, depending on the installation. In our home it required a professional plumber, and he was able to fit it snugly into a closet so it takes very little space. We ended up using copper lines and fixtures rather than the PVC fixtures the system came with, though that was really just optional.
Our neighborhood is older, and so are the water lines. This means our pre-filters only last for about 2 months, rather than the standard 3 months. The water pour becomes noticeably slower, especially in the shower, and the sediment in the filter is quite visible then. Of course, this just goes to show how much sediment the system has to take out of our water. My wife loves the way the shower feels.
We would recommend Aquasana without any hesitation, and have done so with friends.

This is a great product...we have communty well water and it filters our water very well...we live in Texas and we were lucky enough that all our pipes and wiring were ran up in the attic of our home instead of under the slab foundation, so it was an easy install.

The problem is the valve to shut off the water to the filters does not work and I have tried to contact Aquasana about this several times and they will only answer me if I'm a least bit interested in possibly buying something from them...the minute I mention the valve not working they stop responding. So now we have a valve that does not work right and we cannot replace our filter next year when it comes time to change them, unless we buy our own valve which will void the warranty. Definitely won't buy from them again for the poor customer service!

      Comments about Aquasana Rhino Whole House Water Filter:

      I love the concept, the wife really wanted the whole house filtering system so we ordered it three days ago. I live in a house with a solid slab foundation (no basement). The plumber who gave the estimate had these comments. He had to dig a hole in the front yard below the freeze line, run a trench to the back of the house (about 100 feet) then cut holes in a brick wall into the garage to install the system. It was going to take his crew about 8 hours to run the lines and install. The estimate was $1,552. As much as I like the system it just didn't make sense, we will be sending the system back. I really like the system but in Texas with the type of construction for the homes it just was too expensive to install. I knew I couldn't do it alone so I gave up.

        It turned my Florida water into water that is drinkable. I could not stand the unfiltered water. If you can cut a plastic pipe and glue it you can install it. You have to be a little handy but certainly not a plumber.

        Comments about Aquasana Rhino Whole House Water Filter:

        For about 2 years prior to buying the Whole House System, I first bought the "shower" filters to help with the many allergies/sensitivities I deal with on a daily basis. When we recently moved, I decided the one thing I "had to have" for the new house was a Whole House System; however, my husband kept disagreeing (I guess he just didn't understand the difference it would make). However, once I scheduled the Plumber to take care of the installation, he was somewhat more agreeable.

        We now get delicious/healthy filtered water from every tap in our home which means: healthier and softer skin and hair; better indoor air quality from reduction of volatile chemicals (my nose used to burn from the chlorine in my shower before I starting using the filters).

        We highly recommend the system. My Husband now "loves the taste of the water"...imagine that!

          I don't know why I waited so long to buy this water filter but I am glad I finally did. I bought the whole house filter hired a plumber to install and paid $600 but it was well worth it. I have the best tasting water, I enjoy showering and bathing in softer water and my clothes feel cleaner too. This was recommended to me by our county water engineer so I did not hesitate buying it. My water taste better than Fuji bottled water.

            Wife does not like the way it had to be installed in our home. She keeps refering to the picture in the brocure which is impossible to accomplish in this house. Because out side faucets are all on the main line, we had to install the filter so we could by pass it when watering the lawn or watering plants. She thinks it looks like a "Rube Goldberg Installation.

            Comments about Aquasana Rhino Whole House Water Filter:

            The water quality in our neighborhood has been extremely poor for many years. Although our municipal water supply meets the relevant state and federal standards, there are trapped gasses in the water that are not monitored or controlled which cause a very musty smell, and make the water very distasteful. We have had to resort to the use of a filter on a drinking water pitcher to trap the dissolved gasses. We purchased the Aquasana whole whose water filter, and had it installed by a licensed plumber. We can now drink water directly from any of the taps in our home. This product met all of our expectations.
