Started from over-the-counter top back in 2010. Loved the water quality, taste and convenience of having clean water to bottle my own instead of buying. Switched to under-the-counter system in 2011 and added a shower filter (my sensitive skin loved it!). Upgraded each time an upgrade was available. Now use it for drinking, cooking, pets, plants. Have no complaints about the filter performance. Not sure why folks expect the flow to be equal to the flow from the tap - filtering process requires some time and exposure of water that is being filtered to the filtering elements, so increasing pressure/flow will most likely compromise the output water quality, so I am happy to wait 10 seconds longer to fill the kettle but fill it with cleaner water:) Over the couple of years Aquasana greatly improved both the filters and how they are to be replaced, makes me happy to know that they are on the market for the long run and care about consumer satisfaction. I always recommend Aquasana filters to my friends, colleagues and acquaintances; a few who installed them are happy with their water too. I am now considering purchasing several units for my family in Europe.

Does not perform as advertised

I received this filter on 8/2/2013. Slightly over 4 months later, the water flow has slowed to a dribble. It takes about a minute to fill 8 oz. NOT 0.5 gallon per minute as advertised. In fact, it would take about 16 minutes to fill 1 gallon.

When I contacted customer service, they claimed that the filter is due for replacement, which isn't true since the filter is supposed to last for 6 months or 500 gallons. There's only two adults in the household and we use it for drinking so I would estimate that we use about 1 gallon per day. The performance indicator shows that the filter does not need to be changed.

I'm very disappointed in this product. While the product did work, I was satisfied with the water quality.

Comments about Aquasana 2-Stage Drinking Water Filter Replacement:

The water quality is great, which is the most important part. I like the new filter system, which is much easier to install. It would be nice if the flow rate could be a bit quicker, but it's not a big deal.

      Very happy. We upgraded to this filter about a year ago and this was our first replacement. It was a little tricky at first, but all in all took less than 10 minutes. Love that the filter lasts a LONG time and that the output is much faster than our old countertop filter.
