Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CJ I owned this same system in a previous home.
For more than 15 years this same GE system did an excellent job cleaning up our well water after a water softener system did it's job with iron and taste Our chief concern was well water with a high salt content, a common problem in communities around the Chesapeake Bay - we're on the Virginia side then and now. There was no doubt in our new residence how we would deal with well water, which is better this time, but still high in salt. I strongly recommend this under the sink system. It also gets good life (better than the material says) from all three filters in the system. (Reverse Osmosis, Model GXRM10RBL by G E). CJ

This unit is identical to first one I ever owned and installed in my home. Since then I've tried a cheaper system because the replacement filters were less expensive. That was a mistake because they needed changing so much more often that they ended up being more expensive. I also tried a more expensive unit from a plumbing supply company thinking it would perform better, but the smaller storage tank and more expensive replacement filters made me switch back to this system.
One drawback of this system is that the pre- and post-filters are harder to change because they don't just twist on and off, you have to open up the canister and change the internal cartridge, but that is the reason they last longer, work better, and in the long run are more economical. One thing that would make filter changes easier is a shut-off valve at the storage tank. This is a simple enough do-it-yourself add on, but it would be nice if the manufacturer included it with the system. That way you can just close the valve instead of having to drain the tank every time you change filters.

There is 4 to 1 waste with this RO system. If you have well water this system could work for you. City water in AZ is expensive and to waste 4 gals of water to make 1 does not make sense.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sally Design flaws make this one difficult to install.
This system has to be installed near a water source. In our case that meant squeezing it into an existing cabinet side wall next to the sink. If you didn't have to install it like that, it would be far easier. Quite a bit of "take filters in and out" in such a cramped space isn't any fun either.
The water is clean and clear so no problem there. However, the gurgling after a glass is filled goes on for quite awhile afterward.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigKahuna Great Tasting Water!
We've had this system for about ten years and it produces great tasting filtered water. I now need to replace all three filters and unfortunately the tank too,as the bladder must be shot as there is minimal water pressure. I've considered purchasing a different unit but after research on other models I am sticking with this one! Instead of purchasing new filters and a new tank I am just going to purchase a new system (the cost is about the same). Anyhow we are pleased enough to stick with the same system. I will warn you that there is some plumbing effort to install it and changing the filters is also some effort- but the water tastes great- is the equivalent of bottled water- and our first system lasted ten years. I am by no means a plumber but have installed several faucets over the years, but not much more than that, You may want a plumber or handyman to install it and then change the filters yourself....Satisfied customer.

After experiencing a overpressure in the waterline into the drainvalue within the sinkbase from the small black relief line to it and the larger black drain line that dumps into the main plumbing. Contacted customer service and was instruced to buy a newer model and seek a instore credit. My decision was to cut the smaller black felief tube to bypass the vent inside the base of the dispencer. I cut the large black drain tube from the base of the dispencer and then inserted the smaller relief tube into the larger drain tube. This bypassed the vent option at the base of the dispencer and drains direct. Overpressure leak solved and works great without thd expensive costs of loss and replacement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CleanWaterLover Works great, no problems & Much better water and cheaper than bottled water.
THis was the second one that I installed. Bought my first one 15 years ago and had to replace the tank (the internal bladder broke after all these years), so I just bought another new one. Plan to keep using this type of product forever. Bottled water is often just filtered tap water put in plastic bottles that may contaminate the water. And bottled water costs more than gasoline. So make your own very clean water.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by xyyklmnoprsrtuv59 poor dispenser
The unit is well designed but the faucet to dispense water has a close curve to the neck making it difficult to get a container under it easily. I substituted an other faucet to make it usable for me.
