Answer: 
The Ultimate Defense system is a reverse osmosis unit as I recall, and it filters more items/things from the water than this one does. Some additional chemicals and dissolved solids I think were the main improvements over this unit.
RO systems work a lot like a water softener in that they will use water to backwash the filters, making them last longer.

Answer: 
The ultimate is a reverse osmosis system , it filters more elements with differant filter stages and has a water holding tank. You need to determine what your trying to filter to decide which system is best for you.

That's usually from the coffee or coffee filter. Also sometimes caused by a type of scale buildup in the coffee maker.
You can check for sure by going to a pharmacy and buying a gallon of distilled water (usually just a dollar or two) and brewing a pot using that water instead of tap/filtered water. Distilled water is usually the purest water a person can generally buy at a store, much better than Read More
That's usually from the coffee or coffee filter. Also sometimes caused by a type of scale buildup in the coffee maker.
You can check for sure by going to a pharmacy and buying a gallon of distilled water (usually just a dollar or two) and brewing a pot using that water instead of tap/filtered water. Distilled water is usually the purest water a person can generally buy at a store, much better than filtered water. Ships on the ocean distill ocean water to make it potable/drinkable, and that process removes more than 99% of all contaminants, including the salt.
If you brew a pot with distilled water and still see that oily/bluish film on the top of your coffee in the pot, then it either a coffee maker in needs of cleaning, the filters used, or the coffee itself. Some coffee beans like to be brewed at hotter or cooler temperatures than others, and most basic coffee makers only have one temperature: Very hot. Read Less

Answer: 
Have you flushed the filters prior to using the system for consumption? The filters are carbon base which could emit carbon sedaments . The filters need to be flushed by running the water for up to 10 minutes. Mine took about 5 minutes in 30 seconds to 1 minute intervals.

Could be two things. First, if the filters are brand new, you could be seeing some carbon particles coming out the new filters. Carbon in this fashion is harmless when drunk from this type of filter system and isn't something to be very concerned with.

Could be two things. First, if the filters are brand new, you could be seeing some carbon particles coming out the new filters. Carbon in this fashion is harmless when drunk from this type of filter system and isn't something to be very concerned with. When installing new filters in any water filter system, I always run the water for 5 to 10 minutes to flush the air and any loose carbon from the filter before I actually use it.
Second, I've noted that when the water first comes out of the tap it is full of tiny air bubbles. You can see them swirling around in the glass after you fill it. If you let the glass sit for a minute after filling, they should be gone or nearly so. I at first thought I had a faulty filter system when I saw this and so filled a glass and left it sit on the counter for 30 minutes to see what particles settled out of the water. There weren't any, and after emptying and refilling again I could see they were all air bubbles swirling around, eventually floating to the surface and going away.
If you fill a glass and let it sit for 30 minutes and find anything more than small/tiny black particles on the bottom of the glass, then you may have the wrong kind of filter for the type of water problem you have. If it is only the tiny carbon particles, then flushing the filter by letting it run for 5 to 10 minutes should help a lot with that. Read Less

Answer: 
Keep flushing until the water is clear , it will subside. This is a carbon based filter which could emit partials until flushed out. Instructins say up to 10 minutes . Mine was about 5 minutes and is now clear.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good basic system Advanced drinking water system This us your basic drinking water system that removes Lead ,Cyst ,MTBE contaminants, Chlorine Taste and Odor and VOC reduction of Chloroform . This will not remove such contaminants as fluoride , nitrates etc. as in a reverse osmosis system. While determining what this system will perform for you, understand you specific needs. This system is a 2 stage filter system utilizing activated carbon in its filter make up. The install is pretty simple with some advanced considerations. Since there are so many options of fittings where you will draw you water supply from this seems to be the first hurdle. The only other hurdle would be if your sink has a hole for the faucet. Depending on your sink material this could create some issues for the DIY . Once you mount the faucet holder and the water supply tee. The hook up is quick and easy After the two considerations above install is a snap, the slip connectors work very easy . You have four ends to slide in. Place the unit in you desired location and atach the faucet to the mounting bracket already installed. Insert the filters and turn on the water check fir leaks . The faucet bracket has a timer for filter replacement and a battery needs to be installed . I found that the water volume coming out to be slower than I anticipated , but after measuring the volume it was to spec .05 GPM at 60 PSIG. According to the spec this is the max volume output from these filters from an input pressure between 30 to 125 PSIG. So more input pressure is not going to give you more output pressure. The filters service life is 270 gallons or six months. Not sure why the filters go bad without using them ? replacing the filters every six months and the timers battery is going to run you 60 to 80 bucks depending where you are buying them from . Note you need to use brand specific filters . So this water is costing you about .30 cents a gallon not including the cost of the unit or if your water is not free as my home in California. The system does not waste water by flushing the filters as in a reverse osmosis system . But again you need to know what your trying to filter. There are no other filters option available for this model. I'm using this in my outside barbecue kitchen with a different style faucet along with a whole home filter system thru a soft water potassium system .I installed a digital water meter to measure the water use instead of the timer. The water tastes great after clearing out the initial filter sediments about a 5 minute run no additional clearing was needed. May 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good filter I ordered this filter to get rid of choline taste and have instant filtered water. It took 2 hours to set it up and plum it in. Filter set is easy twist pop type connectors . Stainless steel facet. It filled a 1/4gallon pitcher is 18 seconds the filter housing sits under sink Cabnet out of sight while the top facet is nice. This filter DOES removed listed chemicals of cover of box but does NOT remove BPA. pharmaceutical runoff, sodium hexafluorosilicate( fluoride), glypophosphates, aluminum barium, matalic or ionized aluminum, pesticides, radioactive particles... So I have a gravity filter that removes all of the listed plus 4000 more. So I use this advanced defense as a pre and primer for fling the gravity filter And Coffey making Water tasted good with the Glasier bay dual filter April 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noticable Improvement in Water Taste The tap water at my home is not always clear and has a strong chlorinated taste. To help improve the clarity and taste, I decided to obtain the Glacier Bay Advanced Defense Drinking Water Filtration System, Model HDGDUS4. This is a two-stage filtration system that includes the two filters mounted under the sink, along with a drinking faucet that mounts on the sink. I am quite surprised at how the filtration system has improved the taste of the tap water. Installation of the Glacier Bay Drinking Water Filtration System is not difficult. I did have to purchase a new fitting for tapping into the cold water supply line at the shutoff valve. The filter and faucet use convenient push-in connections, so make sure to measure and cut-off the plastic lines properly before making the connections. The two filters lock into the base and provides 6-months of use before needing replacement. The drinking faucet mounts in the spare hole most sinks (if available), or requires a new 1 1/4” hole to be drilled in the sink. The faucet also includes a battery-operated timer which lights up when the filters need replacement. If your tap water is poor quality or has a chlorine taste, check out the Glacier Bay Drinking Water Filtration System. I’m very satisfied with the improvement in water quality and taste.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install lightweight water filtration system I was able to install the system in under an hour; the instructions were straightforward and all items necessary for the system to function out of the box were included - huge plus since I've had previous filtration systems and they weren't out of the box ready for use; either filters, optional adapters, or faulty systems were the issues. I do recommend pushing the tubing into the connectors until a "click" sound is made; this informs the installer that the tubing connections are secure and leak free. I failed to ensure the tubing was connected to the faucet and water was slightly dripping - solely my error :) Fixing that was easy - just follow the directions for releasing the tubing from the faucet connector and reconnect until a "click" sound is made - no more leaks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Install Under Sink Drinking Water Filtration with Faucet This unit sits on the base of the kitchen sink cabinet. It measures 12" high at the tallest point and is 15" deep. With the filters installed in the unit it takes up 16" front to back. The filtered water faucet is installed through the countertop. It comes with 3/8" plastic tubing. It also comes with a water supply fitting which you will attach to the vertical cold water pipe. If you adapt your cold water pipe to fit the 3/8" tubing, you will need a 3/8" compression fitting. ( Instructions are given for that option. ) The plastic tubing is attached to the drinking water faucet (included in nickel finish) and the other end goes through the counter top to be attached to the cold water faucet stud that you attached to your cold water pipe. The attached timer lets you know when 6 months has passed. It is operated with a coin battery. The filter cartridges are screwed in to the holes in the front. When installed, the filtered cold water bypasses the main faucet and gets routed to the new one. The main faucet will have hot water and cold water because of the water supply fitting that also allows the tubing to be connected to the cold water pipe. This is good for drinking water and if you need warm water, you would have unfiltered hot and unfiltered cold water coming from the main faucet. January 17, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Love the 6 month filter life We wanted a filtered water tap easily accessible in our kitchen. We have filtered water pitchers, but with two small kids, it's so much easier to have a tap with filtered water--no waiting. To install, we removed a mounted hand soap pump and put this in its place. Installation of the filters was easy. I love the that filtration system doesn't need additional mounting, but can sit easily in the cabinet base (and doesn't take up too much space). Putting the tap into place was simple. However, the connector provided to hook the water lines into our pipe did not fit with our 3/8" copper piping. (My husband declared the piece "useless.") We did have to go to Home Depot and buy the required piece to finish installation. I hate projects that require an extra trip (and more money), but I'm hopeful that this filtration system will serve our family for a long time. May 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Water tastes great This wasn't difficult to install with basic tools. Our water had a bit of a funny taste and sometimes you'd see sediment in a water glass. Not Flint-level quality problems, but a concern that bothered some. Our water is clear now and has no odd taste, which is the goal I guess. I was worried about replacement filters but this unit seems to use a commonly available filter cartridge that has been around for a long time. April 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great water Hello, I'm writing today about the Glacier Bay Advanced Defense Drinking Water Filtration System. This 2 stage water filtration system is very easy to install, you may need to buy an adapter for your cold water line , this is explained in the installation instructions . The filter replacement doesn't require tools , this makes it very easy to replace your filters. It also looks nice. April 17, 2016
