      Comments about Aquasana 2-Stage Drinking Water Filter Replacement:

      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:

      I tried to replace my filters yesterday, but could not stop the red container from leaking. I called in a plumber friend - which should never have to happen - and he said the O-Ring wasn't doing its job, even though the unit is only six months old. He used teflon tape and paste on the threads and got the leak down to a dribble which will have to do until next time, I guess.

            Comments about Aquasana 2-Stage Drinking Water Filter Replacement:

            it is still a great product, but the filters are way too expensive. I believe there are cheaper alternative option.

            I tried to contact customer service couple times by e-mail, but no one ever replied. Live chat is not always available during the business hour; it is very annoying that i have to call them whenever I need to reach them. the good thing is the wait time of calling them isn't that bad like 1-2 mins wait time.

              The filters work as they should but for years I have written to the company and made calls asking why have such a high cost on the replacement filters. Kind of like, printers and inks.
