Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SF Save Water for Drought
I have this system for 9 years now, the original transformer is still working fine. It has some humming sound when the pump is working, but it is not annoying to me. It is under my sink inside a cabinet. All RO systems are slow, but this one is faster than regular RO system with the help of pump. Regular RO system wastes about 4 gallons of water down the drain for every gallon of filtered water it produces unless you recycle that water. It helps to save plenty of water for California drought if all families use it.

It does exactly what it is suppose to do. It was simple to install and much smaller than our previous system. You can hear the pump working when it turns on but it isn't loud enough to bother anyone and it is a small inconvenience vs wasting gallons of water every day.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by vegascaptain Worst of Watts Premier!
Bought this to replace my 5 stage Watts Premier R/O. The old unit worked fine, but wasted a lot of water. I remodeled my kitchen, and in the process, thought I would replace my old R/O with a new one since it was quite old and needed new filters anyway. I was going to buy the same unit (even though it was slow like all R/O's but decided on the zero waste for enviromental purposes. Boy was I wrong! This unit has less water pressure and produces about 3 glasses worth of water at a time, then runs dry. I am now going to try a single Culligan (US-EZ-1)filter. I will try to update this.

Have a friend who installed one which works well. Mine never worked even after two checks of setup and 2+ hrs on phone with Watts tech. Returned to Homedepot and got full refund.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deem love this system
We are here only for 5 months a year and have had this system for two years and just starting our third year. We are just now replacing the filters as we only use it for 5 months each year. We have never had a problem with the system and would highly recommend it. We like the fact that we do not waste any water with this system thus saving on water. We have never run out of water and we do use quite a lot of water from the system. Makes good tasting ice cubes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paymon Clean drinking water
I tried many reverse osmosis systems in the past, unfortunately they produce and waste 3 cups of water for every 1 cup of drinking water. This unit works different than the other systems by placing the waste water back into the hot water line which can then be used throughout the house at the dishwasher, laundry or shower. I owned this unit for many years and I am very happy with its performance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bosun Save lots of Water.
Estimates, depending on the unit, run from three to six-gallons of waste water for every gallon produced in an RO. We have had this Zero-Waste system for five and a half years and let me tell you, compared to our Culligan unit that we had for ovr ten-years we are saving about between eight and ten-gallons of water a day. The only trouble we have had was because the contractor installed the pressure gauge on the co-op water meter and probably used the setting of the unit out of the box. The motor ran on and on and I was sure I would have to replace the motor before long. I finally got off my dead rear end and checked incoming pressure at the meter one day and it was only 50 PSI. I upped to it 65 PSI and everything was better, toilets flushed better, water softener was more efficient, as was the dishwasher and the RO pump ran and was done in a few minutes. With the price of water going up and with it becoming more scarce, this Zero-Waste RO is perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neil Very nice RO system
We bought this system three years ago and it runs great. We use it for cooking and drinking all day long and its pressure is very good and constant. The only down side is that I couldn't find replacement filters in the local stores not even in Home Depot where we purchased it. However, I was able to order the filters from the company's website for very reasonable price ($13 per set).
