We decided to go with advice from a friend and consider a whole house system and returned it with days after the opinion. It seemed cumbersome to us and isolated to use this just for the drinking water.

Ispring promises to update the installation instructions soon. Bottom line, the water from this filter tastes great! It replaced my 7 year old GE 3 stage RO filter. It took me 3 hours to install. I have installed two so far. Good price for what you get. I plan to save money on water coliform testing because the filter has a UV coliform killer on top of the stages. I use it to make ices cubes in the Freezer too.
This is a very good water filtration system. I decided to go with iSpring because it has first clear housing to see the filter inside. Also the price of filter replacements is cheaper than other brand such as APEC (compring regular 6 months filters). Water filtration result is very good. 200 tds down to 19-21, without using mineral cartridge. Using mineral cartridge gives little higher tds. iSpring’s customer service is very good that i got responses quickly.

I like the flavor of the water from this system. It is an improvement over my previous ro system and very well built. The reason it did not get 5 stars and was rated average in "value" is because the UV system is apparently not perfectly compatible with city water systems - particularly city water that uses ozone in its purification process. Apparently, the uv light reacts with the ozone and creates a gas that smells a bit like garlic when you pour the water. The smell evaporates after a couple of minutes, but I don't want to wait a couple of minutes to drink a glass of purified water without it smelling. It would have been great for the product to come with a warning on the website description, so I wouldn't have wasted the money on this extra feature that I can't use. I now have to keep the uv light unplugged to eliminate the smell which makes me feel like I wasted my money on their "top" product. On a positive note, Nick from iSpring customer service was very quick, helpful, and communicative in troubleshooting my issue. That is certainly a major plus for the company. I do however wish they would be proactive in informing consumers of this issue before I have to ask for help, given it is known to them. It would be the right thing to do. I was planning on buying another one of these units to replace the 4 filter ro system in our other home, but this issue has given me some pause.
I have been using this water filtration system and for a while and I love it.
Even though our tap water tates good already, adding this water filter has definitely made out water not only taste better.
I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to have clean and great tasting water.
