Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FriscoDoc Easy To Install...Works Fine
The first unit a handyman installed was apparently flawed in some way. We eventually installed a new unit, and since then the replacement filter has been a snap (no pun intended) to install.

The filter was extremely difficult to install. It me an hour to finally have it installed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Njhutch Great water filter
We have well water which is very hard. This filter has eleminated the constant cleaning of calcium stains on everything from our coffee maker to finding deposits in the bottom of glasses of water. I love the "Smartwater reminder". Saw it blinking last night and will change out filter today. I installed it without my husbands help, it was pretty easy. I like the fact that all water coming out of cold water setting is filtered.

I got the replacement cartridge but it was defective. It caused the water to have a chemical taste. I had to but a new cartridge and this one worked normally.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hans34 Works as expected, filter easy to change
Filter was originally installed about 3-4 years ago. It was never changed. I just changed it for the first time. After I figured out how much torque was needed, removal was straightforward. Some water spilled out. Not sure if that is expected, but it wasn't a lot. It may not be the best quick disconnect, but seems reasonable.
Probably because of the time the ok filter spent in there, there was some brown stuff around the gaskets. I tried to towel out the holder in case it was some slime build up. Then I installed the new filter.
I think total time to do this again would be less than 1 min to remove and install. I wonder if the commenters saying it was difficult have hard water (I have non-hard water, no softening needed). This is just a sediment and chlorine filter. For some locations that may not be what you need. Check with your local water utility before getting this kind of filter.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joe_C Difficult to change cartridge
I finally managed to replace the cartridge after close to an hour of work. Removing the cartridge was very hard. I had to remove it while it's hanging on the wall under the kitchen sink, using it for added leverage. It's a good thing the bracket was firmly in place. Installation of the new cartridge was equally difficult. To push it all the way in was hard as it felt like it was hitting something inside the receptacle. Then the 1/4 turn was also hard, and I was only able to do it by using the wall bracket for leverage, similar to the removal as I mentioned before.
