I have the Aquasana Whole House Filter for three years and I
could not be more pleased. The water tastes great and is always clean never cloudy or weird. It seems to be clean of
harmful chemicals but I have not tested it. It was easy to install and maintain. Highly recommended!
I also used their table top filter in the past and that was
excellent also. I purchased one for my younger son and he loves it. Also I purchased a Whole House Filter for my older
son and his family and they also love it.

depending on the water quality, (which for me its well water which its not good quality) the filter lasts about 1 month and a half tops before the water starts smelling again like rust & items that use the water start getting stained with the rust color again (toilet/sinks/washing machines/shower tubs, etc...) I live in a unincorporated area which only has well water for each house and we have the aquasana rust remover/water filtration rhino system.. the aquasana website estates that the post filter should be replaced every 9-12 months, which in my case its not true. As I said earlier it does not go past 1 month and a half before the water starts smelling again. Also its very inconvenient that only the aquasana website sells this kind of replacement cartrige, i tried looking for it all over the internet and stores and i cannot find it. It is also over priced unless its on sale.

Comments about Aquasana Whole House Post-filter Cartridge Replacement:

Agree with many prior reviewers in concluding that these filters are expensive and only last 3 weeks; have had limited success washing them and reusing them as they do not clean easily. I also agree that it seems this filter is doing most of the filtering for the entire system. I have the entire whole house Well system minus the UV and, on the positive side, the Sulfur smell is much improved; the scaling is partially better and the water tastes better for the first 2-3 weeks of the post-filters lifespan. Unfortunately, the system is creating some kind of chemical problem in which anytime we use any type of bleach or bleach-like product it is causing clothing and dishes to become ruined with a dark permanent discoloration. Have tried to contact management for months with absolutely no response regarding either issue. The first level Customer Service folks are very helpful and efficient but beyond them this company is only about studying their monthly sales numbers and counting their money. My recommendation would be to get a whole house RO system if you can afford or get a top end water softening system and then feed that into a sub-micron filter from another company.

    Comments about Aquasana Whole House Post-filter Cartridge Replacement:

    Most complaints are about how often these filters needs to be replaced and the cost of it. Yes, they don't last as long as aquasana says. Definitely needs to be handled more often.

    But you don't need to replace them. They are designed to be washable and reusable. Just take it out and hose it down until it's clean and put it back in. You can do this every month and then replace after 1 year.
