Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HappyCustomerHere Sadly Disapointed
I really, really wanted this to work. I mean nobody, and I mean nobody hates a monthly Costco run to hauling bottles of water home. the awkward comments people make when they see how much bottled water I purchase (and it's only me) for one thirsty guy! I like to stay hydrated but do not like the taste of my city's water and was hoping this GE RO system would save the day. I had used the ice maker twist and lock filters in the years past and felt fairly comfortable with this.
After trying all possible options it will not install in my kitchen because of the thickness of my granite counter tops and how my sink is recessed into the counters. Because of the potential lifespan of this product it doesn't warrant destroying my granite counter tops to install the faucet. This product is ideally situated for sinks you can drill through to mount the faucet.

Easy install with only one cold water connection to house plumbing required - water quality rivals bottled water - the system replaces an almost identical 9 year old GE R/O system that only had a problem with the bladder leaking in the water storage tank - However, since the old spigot was showing signs of wear and we needed to replace the inlet/outlet filters anyway - decided to spend a few dollars more and get a whole new system.

Expensive to buy and maintain...o yea and occasional leaks. Somewhat difficult to install since not all parts are included and instructions are lacking. Faucet is very flimsy and wobbles. Very poor construction. Uses a lot of water! I hear it draining for hours at a time...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neelam Water tastes good and ice is odor free.
This system came nicely packaged, all parts included to finish the installation. I initially planned to install it myself but ended up calling a pro because I also wanted to run the filtered supply line to my fridge supply line.
I however saw my plumber installing it. To be honest, he made it look so easy that I personally think I could actually tackle it myself (excluding the line for my ice maker). The tank sits under the sink, the filter housing is mounted on the side of the sink’s cabinet wall. For 3/8” drain pipe, a hole was drilled just before the trap and then the drain pipe was secured using a saddle clamp. For the ice maker, my plumber used a T-adaptor to connect 3/8” water outlet tube for the faucet and the ice maker water supply.
I did not have a hole for the faucet so the plumber made a new hole using 1-3/8” thin wall hole saw with a hammer drill and all-purpose oil, took less than 2 minutes to drill.
Overall, it took him about an hour and half to fully install it.
The faucet is chrome finish and looks stylish. It’s not a perfect match for my stainless finish kitchen faucet but still blends fine. You can install the faucet so that the handle is on the right or the left side. The neck is moveable too.
Now that it’s all installed, I am happy with what it offers. The water tastes clean and I certainly feel the difference in quality. The most noticeable difference was in the ice. The ice cubes had unpleasant taste to it which is totally gone.
Recurring cost is the filters that need changed every six month. Given the money I had been spending on bottled water, the filters are a lot cheaper.
About longevity, I can’t say anything yet. The tank is Taiwan made, the filter housing is American and some parts are from China. I have it professionally installed so there is nothing wrong with my install. I will update this review & rating if and when I notice any issues with the performance.
In a nut shell, it’s a good system, does not cost arms and legs to install and to maintain plus its reducing my carbon foot print.

We have been running this unit in our home for 9 years now. Not one single problem, it works flawlessly to supply clean water to two refrigerators ice/water systems as well as the sink mounted faucet. We use this all day every day so I can tell you with absolute certainty this product is amazing for the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MartinE GE Twist and Lock Reverse Osmosis Filtration System
When I replaced my old RO system that I had for 10 years, I installed this GE Twist and Lock Reverse Osmosis Filtration System, If your not to handy with tools you should go and look at videos on HOW TO, they really help. It only took me about 2 hours to install and 1 trip to Home Depot for some replacement parts. Once installed the system produced great tasting RO water. It comes with a nice chrome water faucet that installs on top of sink. It produces 8.46 gallon per day so that is plenty of water for a family of 4. The filters are very easy to change once your indicator light turns red, you simply turn & twist of the filters. Since this is my first GE RO system I don't know how long until the filters need to be replaced. The price of the unit is some hat on the high side but you'll be saving money by Not Buying Plastic Water Bottles.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigLar Very Good Option for Drinking Water
We recently installed this in our country cabin, which is supplied by a cistern. It really is nice to use knowing that the water you are drinking and cooking with are pure and clean. We previously hauled bottled water to use for that purpose and we no longer have to do that. The connections were easy, but I did have to get a hole saw to cut through the counter for the spigot. You will need to make some room under the cabinet for this. This would be good in any home where you use bottled water on a regular basis.
The water tastes great and again, just the confidence that it is clean makes us feel better. It eliminates the need for bottled water and we have started filling our large jug to take back to our home in town.
