I received this as a gift for my birthday and was really excited because I drink around 100 oz. of water a day. The water tastes good, but not any different than the filtered water from my fridge.
I see that a lot of posters complain that the bottles are hard to open. I find just the opposite, I can't get mine to close very securely, the caps pop off all over the place. I thought this would be great to take water to work, however I don't think I could get them there without the bottles opening and spilling. I probably won't get much use out this product due to that fact. I don't buy bottled water to drink at home, I buy it take with me.

We have been using the Filtrete Waterstation for serveral months. We have been very happy with the product. I used to purchase at least 2 cases of bottled water per week. Not only was this an added expense to my weekly grocery shopping budget, but it became very inconvenient having to collect the empties from around the house where my three boys left them. Since the purchase of the Filtrete waterstation I no onger buy bottled water. Each child is assigned a bottle and their initial is written on top in permanent marker. They have become responsible to cleaning and filling their own water bottle. This has eliminated extra work for me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wastedkidney This product is the best investment I have ever made. I would have given it 5 stars, but for two caveats. First, the station does not fit in our fridge, which is ok because the bottles do. Second, the lids gave me a bit of a hassle at first, but if you line it up, it snaps right it. I would recommend this to anyone. I hate to drink tap water, it is just gross to me, but I can't afford to keep buying bottled water. Not only that, but they are horrible for the environment. Since I bought the Filtrete water system, I haven't bought a single disposable bottle of water. The savings is awesome, and every time I refill the bottles, I feel even better about my purchase.

I had the opportunity to be a product tester prior to it being released to the market. I use this product all the time. Its very easy to refill the bottles and the handles make it easy to carry from one place to the next. It did take a bit to figure out how to release the top and re-close it, but once you have its easy. You don't have to worry about losing your cap. I even use it while driving and don't have a problem. I love not putting anymore of those individual bottles in the landfills or having so much recyclables. You just reuse and reuse and reuse. When its time for a new filter, you know and easily replace it.

I love the Filtrete Water Station! It is so easy to use. I can't even begin to count up how much I have saved without having to purchase water from the store. The only reason that I did not rate this product as excellent, is because some of the caps on the water bottles to do lock in tight and pop off, causing water to spill (it appears the new colored screw on caps have solved this problem), I just wish I knew that the were changing the caps before I purchased extra water bottles with the old white caps. Otherwise, I have convinced two of my friends to purchase this product and they love it as much as I do.

My family purchased the water station as an alternative to having to drink "bathroom" water or bottled water in our bedrooms. Although it does produce clean-tasting water, as promised, we don't use it as much as I had anticipated.
It is a bit of a pain to fill with water, and the "alternative bottle" spout isn't very usable, as the flow is slow, and the angle is awkward.
A couple of the bottles have lids that don't seal easily, so this also makes it a little less than kid-friendly.
However, I do appreciate having to purchase and recycle fewer plastic bottles, and the filter does seem to last a decent amount of time. It is a little difficult to store easily, though.

where do i begin! i never write reviews on products, but i had to on this one! i purchased the filtrete water station about 3 months ago and was excited to use it when i got home. i opened the box and got everything ready to use. i filled up the container to find out that the over flow spout did not work, it made the water taste like minerals, and the water bottles are made cheap! i used the water bottles maybe four times and then they would not click shut after that. i would not recommend this product to anyone! i would save your money and buy nalgene bottles and a faucet filter. i hope this review helps :)

I was a product tester for the water station.We have been using it for about 6 months.We really like it.
It is easy to use,clean and change filters.The water in our area tastes horrible and the water station makes it taste a 100% better!My wife hates drinking water and she now drinks it daily.We had no problems with the bottles or caps leaking.We just put it in our sink fill up the bottles and store the bottles in the fridge.Then we use the drain spout to fill other bottles we have.No waste. We store the station on our bar between our dinning room and kitchen.Doesn't take up a lot of room.Very good product,i recommend it. A plus also is that the piece that holds the filter is recyclable.
