NO! Aquasana Team is wrong. I bought Danze (one over stove and one by kitchen sink for under counter instant hot water) faucets, to match my main kitchen faucet. Did this with a complete renovation completed eight months ago.
I've done my first filter change at six months and they were visually working. Also left a glass of filtered water on end table while gone several days. There was no settlement, Read More

No, you do not have to use the one that comes with it. I purchased a different style water spout from home depot and it works just fine with this set up. Or do a homedepot.com search for single-handle replacement filtration faucet

Answer: 
Yes because the hose is compatible with that faucet would not be compatible with a regular faucet. I have had no issues with the faucet. It is small but works great.

Grandmab,
The filter replacement process can be completed by the homeowner. The process should take a couple minutes every 6 months.

Where is PID?

This question is from 3-Stage Under Counter Water Filtration System with Faucet in Brushed Nickel
Asked by
New Orleans
Read all my Q&A
August 21, 2016
"New performance indicating device (PID) alerts you when it's time to change your filter." Where is this "PID" located and/or should I hear or look for something?

I put two in (one for cooking over the stove and to the ice maker). The other is at the sink with an instant hot water heater in line. My refrigerator has notified me it is time to change the filter in the refrigerator. All (including the refrigerator) are new and put in six months ago with a total kitchen renovation. It seems a bit strange that the refrigerator tells me a new filter is required, while my 3-stage "hasn't said" anything.

A review will follow, pending your answer. Thank you.

Based on the combination of rust and odor, it sounds like your water is high in iron. While this system does a fantastic job at removing contaminants, like lead, chlorine, chloramines and cysts, it has little effect on iron.

I bought it for the quality and finish of the faucet on top and was not disappointed. The faucet is a real faucet, not one of those with a plastic handle and the brushed nickel matches the main faucet on the sink. I also like that the spout can swivel. This was a replacement of a single stage filter, with a tee to a hot water dispenser. I had to get one new part because of that, but otherwise this would have had everything I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised, easy installation... Watch the installation video provided on the HD website. Package was received in perfect condition, and prior to delivery due date. Opened the package for parts inventory, all was there, time to install. After a quick read of the included instructions, gathered the simple hand tools and began. It took longer to empty the cabinet for access, then the install itself. Everything went together as expected, be sure to allow at least 12 inches of clearance for future filter change outs. Once all connections were double checked, water was turned on, no leaks discovered. When connecting the inlet and outlet hose into the filter housing, be sure that 1 inch of the hose inserts into the connection ports (per instructions). Let water run for several minutes to clear out the filters and enjoy your next glass of filtered water, cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I spent a good deal of time researching online for this product. The price was reasonable, and the description included many good reviews. A plumber installed this product for us, along with a new kitchen faucet. The job went smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Have two. One to undercounter instant hot water heater and one to over stove tap and to ice maker. Six month changeout show they are visually removing stuff. Also a glass of water left on an end table for several days while gone on vacation had evaporation but no sediment or cloudiness. Regular water from the tap is a far different story. I threw the faucets that came with the kit away, btw and used Danze faucets

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install, doesn't need much space Uses much less under-counter-space than reverse osmosis. The install is easier than reverse osmosis. Retains "good minerals" that are removed by reverse osmosis, though alkaline reverse osmosis adds minerals back. So they say... The self-install was easy and gratifying...no leaks after a week. The fitting is copper and I didn't need anything extra. I easily drilled a separate hole in my stainless sink for the water dispenser rather than reusing the soap dispenser (drill bit not included). The taste is better than my Britta but I can't tell if it's as good as Dasani. I still need an independent water test. So far, so good.

My husband, who is very handy, had it installed in a few hours. We had a slot for it in our sink, so it looks seamless. The faucet itself with the brushed nickel is very fancy looking. We have very chlorinated water, and could immediately taste the difference.

We had an old water filter that was tasting funky, changing just the filters was no longer making the water taste any better. So after doing some research, the 14 stage water filter I really wanted cost $1600 . . . ya, I'm broke, so that wasn't happening. After going back and forth, I found the reasonably priced Aquasana. It was rated highly across other websites as well as here, so I decided on this 3-stage. (our old one was a 2-stage). For installation, since we already had a water filter in place, when I removed the old one completely, installing the new one was quite easy. With everything changed - faucet, hoses, and filter - the water tastes so much better! I've been worried about all the water we were buying in the plastic jugs as most are not good for us or the environment. I'm grateful this filter was not too expensive and does the job. My only issue with the new filter is that it's water pressure is a little lower, but makes sense since it's going through more filters.

It was very easy to install, even with basic plumbing knowledge. I was really worried that the flow rate would be very low, but the filtered water comes out very quickly and fills anything up extremely fast. MUCH better than the fridge water system.
