Great tasting water but wastes water too
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We were very excited to try the UltraEase™ Reverse Osmosis Filtration System from Whirlpool.  We knew that this system includes a separate faucet and required drilling a hole in our countertop and sink for installation.  It took my husband a little over an hour to install.  The 5 gallon tank and filter hold took up about half of our under the counter/sick space, which we expected.  We did not expect to have to leave the RO faucet running for 24 hours during the cleaning/sanitizing process.  So much wasted water!  So far so good with how the system works - faucet is sturdy, water flows well, no leaks anywhere in the line.  The tap water here is safe to drink but I don't find enjoyable.  The taste is not good and it smells of chlorine/sulfur.  The UltraEase™ Reverse Osmosis Filtration System from Whirlpool does make our tap water odorless and taste great!  I do believe it makes the water even safer to drink as it is NSF certified and reduces lead and other contaminents.  We were very happy to have this installed before hurricane Irma hit.  We were able to fill our own bottles and jugs of water along with the 5 gallons the tank holds.  You do have to give it some time to refill though.  Unfortunately the reverse osmosis process wastes a lot of water.  We have no idea how much as the manual does not provide this information and I cannot find it online for this specific system.  That plus the filters appear to be a bit price are why I give it 3/5.  Now we are using this water sparingly - coffee maker(coffee tastes better too!) and cooking.  We use a filtered pitcher for drinking water - no water waste. This RO system wastes too much water for me to be able to recommend it.

    Amazing clean taste
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very pleased about having this Whirlpool reverse osmosis filtration system. It does take time to install. Make sure you have someone do it that knows what there doing. Water taste like bottled water you'd buy from the store. Clean and pure. The faucet has a long sleek thin neck. You can move it back and forth. The handle moves up to turn on and the more you put it up, the more water comes out stronger. Turn the handle down to turn off. Comes with a water test kit, which I thought was neat. Over all I'd say for sure but this product, you won't be disappointed. I plan to bottle some water and fridgerate it.

      Provides with high quality water
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After installing UltraEase Revese Osmosis Filtration System, I noticed a difference in quality of water. It tasted like natural source of drinking water. Installation was not easy, though. It took time to set everything up. The main issue was with the faucet. Mainly, with rubber gasket (or rubber part) between the faucet and the counter. It is not stable. Also, the faucet has not been set solid.

          Water tastes a lot better
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the UltraEase™ Reverse Osmosis Filtration System. It arrived very quickly. Everything was packaged very well. The instructions were also included in the box. You can easily install this in under a hour. This is everything you need. It even has a kitchen faucet with a light indicator on it. The light indicator will inform you when it is time to change out your filters. Having this complete system is a must! Especially if you are cautious about what goes into your body. This removes impurities in the water. You won't be having to buy any bottled water with this system. Our six month old baby needs to have water that won't hurt him. This helps cut the costs of buying the specialty water for a baby. You will be happy that you are keeping your baby healthy. I am very impressed by this filtration system. The filters only need replaced every six months. So, you only have to buy filters twice a year. With how bad the water is in most areas, this is something that needs to be in every room. I would recommend this filtration system to anybody. This review is based on my family's use of the water filtration system. I received this system at no cost to me. Which had no bearing on my review. I would recommend this no matter what. Because it is a very good system. Very good value for your money. This is a durable system. Also, you can install it by yourself! I will be keeping this filtration system under my sink for a long time.

            Great system
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The reverse osmosis Filtration system is a great way to get clean and safe water. It's easy to install and leaves water tasting great and refreshing. No confusing parts and comes with a lifetime warranty. I love that the design is not super huge, so it doesnt take up much space under my kitchen sink. Instructions are very simple to follow. And the best part is, i know my kids are actually drinking clean water. 24 hrs after set up and its all clean and ready to go. The tank doesn't take long to fill itself either.

              Excellent Water Quality
              Although we in Hawaii have one of the best tap water quality in the USA, we could still taste something unusual in the water. I installed this product four months ago and it is producing water with no taste, how pure water should taste. Installation was straight forward with the installation manual. It took me about four hours to install it. I would not say the installation was easy as crawling under the sink working in tight spaces made it a little difficult on my 65 year old body. But I am sure glad I did it. The great tasting water is worth it. My wife loves me for doing the project for her.

                Finally Great Tasting Water
                We live in a rural location with piped in local well water from the utility district - and the quality is not the best in my opinion. We could taste the rusty pipes when getting water from the faucet. The installation of this system gave us drinkable water with no chemical or rusty pipe taste - and removed the odor from the water. Super simple installation - well written instructions - and everything can be kept out of the way under the sink. Very pleased with this system.

                  Compact and easy to install.
                  This unit is very similar to the GE compact unit but sells for about $70 less. I have owned both but prefer the Whirlpool brand because the faucet included with the GE unit is slow. The fact that the Whirlpool unit a lot less money doesn't hurt. Installation was straightforward and the necessary parts are included.

                          Plumber had no problems installing the unit, like that it is not fastened down, so easier to move enough to replace the cartridges. TDS in the city water measured 460 units, it is coming out of the R O faucet at 14 units.

                            Purchased about a year ago, filters are easy to get and install, but when something goes bad such as the faucet, it is impossible to find and replace and I refuse to purchase a new system just for the faucet.

                              My drinking water is absolutely pure. I have it connected to my ice makers, and the ice is clear as glass. I probably run a hundred gallons of water through my humidifier in the winter, with no residue. Sometimes I spray my car off with it after washing, no spots. It works great for me and is affordable.

                              I replaced my leaking 12 year old WHER25 system with this one. It uses the same filters. I connected the new system to the existing tap and hoses with no leak problems. I replaced the tired old tank with the new one. Appears to be the same guts as the WHER25 with the same filters- Just looks different and its cheaper. Works great, lots of pressure, and no leaks.
