Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This filter is amazing. I have tried other filters in the past but resorted to using distilled water in which I added minerals. I am loving this filter though. I tell my husband daily how thankful I am that we purchased it. I love that it filters straight from the sink and I don’t have to worry about the chemicals being in our drinking water. The taste is great. It installs so easily and works really well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleanest tasting water EVER! Super easy installation -- only change filter every 6 months, and they automatically send it to me -- no more keeping track of when it's time to change filter. I love that it clears out so many contaminants - including pharmaceuticals - which most people are NOT aware of as being a problem in tap water

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall impression of new Aquasana Water filter This is the B E S T product one could purchase for the value!!! The water tastes great!!! Better than (and much cheaper) purchasing bottled h2o!!! I am so glad I found this company on line. Was skeptical at first, but now, would NEVER puchase a Britta or PUR water filter again!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the convenience I’ve used Aquasana filters for many years And love the taste. I feel confident that the water I’m drinking is safe and love the fact that my filter eliminates the need for using plastics. I did have to go to the hardware store to get an adapter that would fit my faucet, but otherwise installation was very easy and I did it myself .Great customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased From the very first glass, I could tell the difference. It is so good to know that I am getting healthy, clean water that benefits my overall health. Being on a fixed income, I needed to find a low cost solution to obtaining healthy water, and Aquasana had exactly what I needed. It took advantage of the water that I already had, so I didn't have to buy water or a dispenser. I am so thankful to have found out about this, and highly recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what you want it to do I have been a customer for at least 4 years, and my parents even longer. I must say, I truly like the job this filtration system does. And I have attached a picture to prove it. The filter on the right is the first filter the water enters through. Then it goes into the chamber with the filter on the left. This amazes me, and has made me even more of a loyal customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've loved this filter and company for 10 years. Nobody's paying me to write this. I've been a customer for about 10 years and have used multiple different filter systems based on the different sinks in my various apartments. These filters are just amazing. Pure, clean water. All other water tastes gross after this. And the support is unlike any I've ever encountered. Numerous times I've called them up to say "Hey this is leaking" or "I can't thread the thing onto the faucet" or anything, and they immediately mail me a new part that I need, or even the whole system again! Promptly and no questions asked. VERY helpful people. I've recommended them to everyone who ever asks me about water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more hauling spring water around!! I really like my filtered water system. Before I would have to go get spring water which meant alot of work for me. I would have to wash the bottles which were very heavy and cumbersome. Then haul them around , to and from my home and that was exhausting. Now I just go to my faucet and turn on. The water taste great and so far it has been wonderful. The only question I have is how does it know when the filter is spent. Otherwise it was a good choice for me and my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thankful for good water In the small town in which I live, city water has a metallic, chemical taste. This off-putting taste permeates everything prepared with city water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reliable water filter Late 2016, I started using this counter-top filter to supply tap water for the entire family. I also discontinued my monthly subscription for 5-gallon purified water. I am happy ever since. Just need to replace the filter every 5 months, and I use the filtered water for drinking and cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest water filter ever! I love having good, filtered water straight from the tap. It was easy to install and makes it simple to use filtered water for everything that will go in my body without the expense of a huge system. The filtering pitcher has become too heavy for my 97-year-old mother and this is the perfect solution. Plus, it filters better! So happy to have made this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - great customer service! We've had this product for over 2 years now, and are still overjoyed with it! Great tasting water whenever you need it from the tap, and we fill glass quart bottles to store in the fridge when we want it really cold. We're on the Water for Life program, which means we get filters shipped to us automatically, so we're never without great clean drinking water. Better yet, the product is warranted for life under the Water for Life program, so when our covers got worn and our intake hose got discolored from the city water coming in, Aquasana replaced them free with just a nominal shipping charge. And speaking of the intake hose, you'll know the system is working when the intake hose turns brown with use and the output hose is as clear as the day you got the system. If we could give it 10 stars we would!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent Have had the counter top filter for a bit over a month and no complaints. It took less than a minute to install. There is definitely a difference in the taste and clarity, the slow pour is really not an issue for me. This is perfect for apartment dwelling. Considering the cost, waste and time of purchasing bottles or pitcher filters this is the best value.

Aquasana FAQs

  1. Do I have to pay for a plumber to install the system?

    Our countertop drinking water filter system is very easy to install, and it only takes a few minutes to do; no plumber is necessary. If you have any questions or need assistance, our technical support representatives at 866-662-6885 can walk you through the installation process.

  2. How often do I have to replace the cartridges and how much do they cost?

    We recommend replacing the cartridges after six months or 450 gallons, whichever comes first. Replacement filters cost $59.99, but you can save 15%, get free shipping, and extend your product warranty by signing up for our no-contract auto-ship filter replacement program, Water for Life.

  3. Is this purified water?

    No, and actually, purified water is not as healthy as filtered water. Purified water undergoes reverse osmosis or distillation, which strip everything out of your water - not only the contaminants, but also the healthy, natural minerals. Our system uses selective filtration designed to reduce contaminants from the water and leave in the natural healthy minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

  4. How do I recycle the replacement filters?

    Our company will recycle the filters for you, but we do not cover the shipping cost to return the filters back to us. In reality, the environmental impact of shipping the filters back to us outweighs the good of recycling. To recycle the AQ-4035 drinking filters yourself, remove the ends of the filters, recycle the plastic parts (which are appropriately numbered) and put the carbon either in your compost pile or garden (carbon is good for plant life), or just throw it out (since the carbon degrades quickly, and is a positive component in a landfill).

  5. I'm a renter, so I can't drill or modify the plumbing. Which filter system should I get?

    The countertop system is perfect for renters because it does not require a new hole in the counter. To install an under counter system, you can remove the existing sprayer or soap dispenser in your rental and install our faucet in its place. This option will not damage or permanently modify your plumbing. When you move out, you can easily remove the system and reconnect your plumbing back to normal.

  6. What size adapters do you send with the countertop system (for the diverter hose)?

    13/16 and 15/16 male.

  7. What size is the chrome collar on the countertop system (on the diverter hose)?

    55/64-27 female.

  8. What does TDS mean?

    TDS is the acronym for Total Dissolved Solids, the amount of dissolved minerals and metals present in water. TDS meters tell you the concentration of dissolved minerals and metals, but are not an accurate measurement for contamination. Aquasana products reduce and remove harmful TDS like lead, but selectively retain or replace healthy dissolved solids like calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

  9. What is BPA? And why are people concerned about it?

    BPA stands for Bisphenol-A, a contaminant found in most plastics. BPA can adversely affect your health if consumed at high levels. Aquasana drinking systems do not contain BPA, and our filtration process reduces existing BPA.

  10. Does having hard water mean it is contaminated?

    Hard water is more of a nuisance than a health risk, and is not necessarily contaminated. Most water sources in the USA are considered hard. Hard water is generally safe to drink, after it has been properly treated.

  11. What is soft water, and is it safe to drink?

    Having soft water just means you have a lower concentration of dissolved minerals in the water (primarily calcium and magnesium). Soft water does not mean clean water. Your water can be soft and still contain contaminants.

  12. What is selective filtration, and how do Aquasana systems filter drinking water?

    Selective filtration is the process of sub-micron filtration, micron filtration, adsorption and ion exchange, all of which selectively reduces chemicals, heavy particulates and most dangerous heavy metals from the water while maintaining healthy minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium.

  13. How do I know if an Aquasana system will be compatible with my faucet?

    The only faucets the AQ-4000 water filtration system will not be compatible with are the 2-in-1 faucets that have a detachable sprayer at the faucet opening. The AQ-4000 will fit most standard faucets and also comes with two adapters. If your faucet happens to be a non-standard size than the hose connection or adapters that come with unit, you can take your aerator to the plumbing section at your local hardware store and have it measured. After you know the size of your aerator, contact technical support with the size and we will see if we carry the right size adapter, and we will send it to you.

do you ever need to replace hoses for the countertop model? ive had mine for 4yrs now .

Asked by: john fletcher
I believe it depends on your usage and the temperature in your area and lighting. If you use it often enough, you don’t need to clean the tubes. However, if you live in a warm area, I suggest changing it every 2-3 years.

My countertop filter has been getting stuck on the on position after turning off the water source. If I forget to push the knob back in it will continue filtering the next time I turn my faucet on. Any ideas why?

Asked by: Stephylace
the same happened to me!. The countertop faucet is very low quality. there is a plastic lever in it , that wore out just by regular use. I tried to get an answer from aquasana, but they are good only at taking your money. Since, i have switched to Filtrette. it is so much better,
