Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bwana Second house/Second Filter
This item is easy to install; made of good, heavy, quality materials, and functions flawlessly. This is the second house I have installed this system in. The reliability/efficiency of the first one is why I chose it for our new home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cuzzzzz Like it..but see whole review
The filter needs a plumber for installation... needs shut off valves installed on each side of filter, needs grounding wire, more. I used the more expensive filter (does NOT come with a filter insert) that removes chlorine, residues, dirt, etc., not just the pleated paper filter that removes only particulate matter. Good side: water tastes so much better and skin improving (main reason I bought it ), but, may be a downside.. mold seems to be forming much faster in shower due to the chlorine being removed. It has been exceptionally hot and humid here in NJ since I had it installed, so that is probably part of the reason. Will need to clean shower more frequently, and that is a problem for me as I'm very allergic to the fragrances in these cleaners.
All in all I recommend the GE filter.. a lot less work and space taken up then by those large, three cylinder filtration systems.

Recently installed with no issues so far. It is being used as a prefilter for a water softener on a well system. Very heavy duty materials.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Plumber DOES NOT COME WITH FILTER
This product does not come with the filter needed. Had to go back to Home Depot and purchase the filter separately, which was a waste of time.

The water filtration system was super easy to install. It has been a relief to my water problems. Hubby says super easy to install and best advise use two pipes instead of one.

Install went easy. Problem was that the filters were too long for housing or housing was molded wrong and was too short for the filters. Meaning that the seal didn't close all the way when assembled. Water gushed no matter what. Read some other reviews after i was having problems. Turns out this is quite common. I installed a different filter that i bought at a yard sale for $5. Works great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul I Was Wrong - Buy This Filter
In an earlier review - which I don't think posted - I said to not buy this filter because it was so difficult to change. However, this was before I knew about the pressure release button on the top (the red button). When properly used, this filter is an easy change. In my defense though, I had a professional plumber install it and he didn't leave me the instructions that explained this. Fortunately, the Home Depot site had a place that did explain it. But, I can tell you this, without using the pressure release, the filter is virtually impossible to change.
I have found this filter capable of filtering out almost all the bad stuff including the strange taste that often comes from a commercial water line. My neighbor uses an active system which is always in need of supplies and other upkeep. Fortunately, I don't have to do any of that for my system. It is very cost effective and works very well.
