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.

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:

    My wife and I have used this water filter for over a year and are very happy with this product. We have not experienced problems with the filter and the customer support team has been very prompt with answering questions about the product. We had never bought a water filter before. After doing some research, in the summer of 2013, according to waterfiltercomparisons.com, this company was the highest rated of 17 other companies that sell water filters. (I don't know how Aquasana is currently rated.) But again, we're happy with this product and have had no complaints about it.

      Comments about Aquasana 2-Stage Drinking Water Filter Replacement:

      Although we have city water where we live, it was not all that great tasting and actually made ice with an odor. Since moving there in 1997 we've installed a whole house filter and a water softener to make the water more palatable, which still didn't seem to work. About a year ago after getting tired of buying bottled water to drink we started to look at under sink water filters, after doing so looking around on-line we ran across this system, read some reviews and decided to purchase it. We are absolutely delighted with the water taste as well as the ice without odors. By signing up for the water for life program we even get new filters every six months to remind us too change them. Our two grandsons even drink more water.

      Comments about Aquasana 2-Stage Drinking Water Filter Replacement:

      Great filtration and much improved ease of cartridge changing with upgrade to the yellow and orange cartridge system. Only apparent fault so far appears to be the lack of reinforcement provided to keep the mounting holes from cracking as screws are tightened to their required amount. Plastic is thin and does not sit flush to a flat mounting surface. I included a washer system and shims to protect the product.

        Lasts much longer than faucet mounted filters. I've had the Aquasauna for a year with no leaks and only have to replace filters twice a year. straight forward install if you have a hole in sink. Nice clean water...tastes great.

          We recently started getting chloramines in our water and aquasana takes them out. This is my second unit. I moved the previous one downstairs in our apartment and put the new one upstairs. Love them both. My son recommended Aquasana to me and now my daughter wants one for her house.
