I can't say enough about this filter. We have used Berky Filters for 5 years. I love the Berky system, but we have too many people in our family, and someone is constantly having to refill the Berky. I have researched RO systems for two years. My two primary concerns were the following: First, I have had water from other RO systems that taste so denatured. I assume the stripping of all minerals leaves it a bit harsh tasting, almost like distilled water. Second, I DID NOT want a system with a slow flow. There is nothing more annoying than taking 2 minutes to fill a cooking pot. The Home Master system has perfectly addressed both of these concerns.
With the mineralization cartridge I can honestly say that my entire family LOVES the taste of this water. It is smooth and refreshing and never leaves that sour feeling in your stomach. Next, the flow of the filter is POWERFUL and fast. It will fill a pitcher as quickly as my primary sink faucet. I can't tell you enough how pleased I am. We installed the purifier two months ago, and it continues to please all of us.
In addition, I can add a few other comments. The RO system installed easily. The videos were so helpful, although there are a few details of installation that the video seemed to miss (maybe our model was slightly different than the one being demo). So be sure to watch the video AND read the instructions, and you can't fail.
It operates quietly and refills so quickly. As soon as you dispense the water, you hear the little hum of the purifier. The design is well conceived. Quick connections make it easy to connect and disconnect the purifier. Everything is color coded so there is no confusion which tube goes where. I LOVE that there are no canisters to hold the filters. Those canisters always seem to harbor bacteria. This is simple, self contained and clean.
A little over a month after we had purchased the Home Master unit the company representative called me. WHAT!! They actually called me to see if we were happy, if we needed anything, or if we had any questions. This is unheard of. We need more companies that care about their product. Usually you call them, AND you still can't get anyone to help you. Jocelyn is GREAT! She is so enthusiastic and friendly. Her customer service is great!!
You will not be disappointed with this decision. I am planning to get one for my in-laws. They are still hauling 5 gallon jugs from the market. Thank you for helping my family. Until our municipal water supplies are safe from contaminates and fluoridation, we will rely on this company to help.
