Absolutely love my water filter The water once its been through the 8 stage filtration tastes almost identical to fresh rain water. After living on a property for 3-4 years and having only tankrain water for drinking to then move to the city where the water is treated and tastes like highly chlorinated pool water I bought this filter because I couldnt stand the taste of the town water. This filter fixed that problem and saved me from having to buy bottled water for drinking. LOVE IT My only complaint with it is the placement of the tap. Once the water level drops below the tap the only way to drain that water is to tip the whole unit.
