2nd one I've bought and same problem
The first one I purchased ended up leaking and so I bought a second one, but kept the old one for parts just in case new one had issues. Now the second one is leaking, has soaked the cabinets. I thought I might be able to fix by replacing the seals from the older unit but on closer inspection saw that there are hairline cracks where each filter connects to the other. When I looked at the old one, I now see that this was the problem there too. Had I realized I would not of bought a second one! I just bought replacement filters too, so unsure whether to dump this and find another filet system.

Poor Quality, leaks water
I really regret buying this unit. Replacement filters are very expensive. I replaced the filters once. About 3 months later the filter housing started leaking. The unit has not been touched or moved in any way in 3 months! This morning I have water all over my floor and under the cabinets! This unit has never been dropped or abused in any way and it just failed under the pressure of water. I added a picture with an arrow pointing at the seem where the water is spraying out of. This seem was either glued, welded, or friction welded together. Obviously a poor design that does not hold up over time. Approx 14 months of use from a single person for cooking water.

We have had mostly great experience with these filters, but they are becoming hard to find. I believe they are being phased out by whirlpool. The water coming through this system tastes amazing

As others have stated on these reviews, my unit also leaked from above the largest of the 3 filters, we bought a new set of filters thinking it was the filter only to find it is leaking in main housing unit...clearly whirlpool has designed a cheap housing that fails after so many filter changes....make it better even if it costs more!!!

Plagued with cracks in filter head
I'm on my second filter head in several years. First on developed a crack near water inlet and just dripped so I figured manufacturing defect and bought a new filter head. Now after several more years, second one developed major crack on top and filter head and spewed water everywhere. DO NOT PURCHASE unless you're ready for the same issues. READ REVIEWS.

This water filtration system doesn’t work properly and leaks water out from the small brass things that go into the hoses. If you don’t want a small flood, I would not recommend it and go get another brand! Anonymous in NY
