This is a lot cheaper than buying bottled water (now we bottle our own when we want to). We installed the aquasana 3 filter system in our wetbar off our kitchen. The kids use it all the time to fill their cups. It's a relatively slow pour compared to straight from the tap, but fine for filling a glass. The only time it's evident that it's slow is when our kids use it to fill gallon jugs to replenish our fish tanks. The alarm that indicates the filter needs replacing is a bit of a mystery to me. Not sure if it measures the volume of water going through or if it goes off every 6 months. There doesn't seem to be a change in taste or appearance of the water when the alarm goes off, but we change the filter anyway. It usually goes off after we've already received our automatic delivery of new filters. The filters are easy to change. Even my wife can do it (sorry). Over all, we are pleased with the system. We enjoy having clean water on demand.

We like how clean the water tastes but the water comes out painfully slow. It has a slow, barely tolerable flow after initial replacement of the filter and then shortly after, it starts barely streaming out at 2 cups per minute rather than the advertised 16 cups per minute. We contacted the company and they had no suggestions or apologies. They didn't care. We also sent an e-mail inquiring about suggestions for speeding up the flow to the speed that is advertised but we received no response. We're planning on replacing the unit but since we put the initial investment into the unit, we're running out the last filter we have before we do.

Comments about Aquasana 3-Stage Drinking Water Filter Replacement:

Great taste ,easy installation but directions were not to clear. I replaced a older style with a tank so I was happy I gained more space under the counter. The hoses that came with the system were to short for my application so I used my old hoses from my old unit. Only thing I was disappointed with is the slow discharge rate ,although there is a endless supply you don't have to wait for the tank to refill.

      Comments about Aquasana 3-Stage Drinking Water Filter Replacement:

      We've had Aquasana for years, but had a constant problem with the filters clogging quite quickly, due to the high sediment content of NYC water. We used a pre-filter that Aquasana provided, and which helped a little, but we still went through a set of two-stage filters in under 3 months, even under 2 at times.
      This 3 stage set completely solved the problem! The water is wonderful--actually tasty--as it always was, but we now get up to 6 months on a set!
      THANK YOU Aquasana!!!!

      Comments about Aquasana 3-Stage Drinking Water Filter Replacement:

      We replaced our under sink filter with Aquasana at the end of February. Our purchase included a continuous filter replacements every six months. We were very happy with the filter - clean and good tasting water. However, after three months the water quality greatly deteriorated. So I decided to purchase a set of replacement filters three weeks ago and installed them. Firstly, the flow rate decreased, noticeably but still tolerable. BTW, the old filters looked quite dirty. I contacted Aquasana about this change and got one response - asking me if I had installed them correctly. I responded that I have and after that, NO MORE REPLIES from Aquasana. The installation is straightforward and simple, no room for error. My questions remain - why is the flow rate from the replacement filters lower than the first set of filters? Why such a degradation of taste after only 3 months and not 6 months as advertised? Please reply.

        Comments about Aquasana 3-Stage Drinking Water Filter Replacement:

        We had an installed filtration system for drinking water, plus were using filtered pitchers, and the water still did not taste very good. On top of that, heating the water for tea, coffee or cooking made it taste and smell odd, so we decided to upgrade the system. After using Aquasana for over a month, the improvement in the water is very noticeable in cooking pasta, potatoes, etc. We are enjoying both tea and coffee more too, since the flavors are no longer changed by the additives in the water that our old filter system did not remove. The somewhat slower running cold water due to the triple filters is of no real concern, because we finally have really good-tasting drinking water.
