Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Afriend007 Love it long time
I have used this filter for over 12 years now without issue. I am now installing a second one in the sink I added in the basement. I use the first Black bucket of water for my plants. I have had no issues other than it is difficult to take apart without a lot of Vaseline when putting it together. I have heard that high-pitched noise twice ( I use the FXULC filters regularly) mentioned in another review after changing the filter and it is annoying but went away after about a week. I figured a long time user's review would be helpful here. On the other hand, 12 years ago some stuff was made better than today so it's hard to tell how the second one will compare after I install it. We love our get filtered water.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jdee Great for awhile
I've had this unit a year now so I've had plenty of time to check it out, it was great,. I've just changed out my second Chlorine filter but this time I decided to replace it with a better one that gets lead and cysts etc.
I got the GE FXULC Replacement Filter, it's more expensive but I figured it was worth it to stay healthy .
Unfortunately since installing the new filter, my system has immediately began emitting a high pitched noise when the faucet was turned on and it is slower running.
I can put up with the slower running faucet but the noise is annoying.
On that basis I wouldn't recommend this system to anyone unless they only plan on using the cheaper filter.

Easy to install, however you need to use brass connectors for the intake and outtake of the filter.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dsm123arch Ultra low flow
Bought and installed this six weeks ago and the flow continues to get weaker. It's down to trickle now so we stopped using it, not to mention none of the install parts are included. This product is terrible but the plumbing department at my local store were very helpful

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ljm18 Flow rate too low to use
Be aware that when using this filter, your flow rate goes from 4 gallons/minute to .5 gallon/minute. It's a ridiculously slow water flow! This is not a usable product. The other filter they recommend will increase the flow to slightly more than 1 gallon/minute, but it doesn't remove all the same things from your water.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RZ Good Filtration System
I like the filter housing its very simple, only bad thing about it is that it does not come with fittings to connect the hose, make sure you use brass fittings on this thing tried using plastic quick connects and they all leak, also get the $25 filter its cheap for what it removes, and lasts for 6months replace twice a year even if you dont use its 2,000 or 6,000 gallon capacity.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brown It's early but I thgink we are going to like it. No problems.
The filter went in easily where the previous filter was. Installation and hook up went well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jlr54 Excellent under counter filter
This product is a great under sink water filter. I've installed them in the last three houses I have owned and will install the one I bought today in my new house tomorrow. The installation is simple, just buy some brass fittings to adapt it to the existing plumbing, insert the filter of your choice and mount it to the cabinet wall with a couple of wood screws. It does a great job of filtering chlorine taste out of city supplies and removes that stagnant taste from water supplied from lakes and other surface supplies. If you re worried about heavy metals, there are filter elements available to take that out as well. You will be totally grossed out the first time you change the filter when you see how brown and dirty it is after only a few months. Just imagine, you and your family used to drink that!
I really don't understand all the whining about having to shop for a few fittings and a short hose to install the housing. Would you rather pay two or three times as much and have a huge pile of useless bits left if they tried to cover every possible permutation of plumbing connections possible in the average house? Maybe I spent too many years in construction but I'd rather spend a quarter as much cash on the initial purchase and a few minutes selecting exactly what I will need to get the job done. If you need that much hand holding, call Joe the Plumber and let him take care of it.
