Comment:
I have had several rage episodes trying to replace parts, spontaneous leaks, etc. Don't purchase this! Fine until you have to replace filter (every 6 months). Clean water is not worth this aggravation. Really aggravating! Avoid avoid avoid! From one very regretful customer. Buy bottled water! Save yourself from having a coronary!

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Have had this for about 2 years. Every time filter and hose need to be changed something breaks or begins leaking. <br /><br />very frustrated with the leaking and needing to call the company for replacement. <br /><br />Will not purchase this product again until they work on the leaking and breaking issues that occur often.

Cons
Then It Started Leaking

Comment:
the problem is the hose that connects the 2 filters. Mine started leaking and then filled up the outer housing. The hose was leaking on both sides. I'm a handy man, so I thought I would just change the hose. I loosened the stainless steel crimpon clamps, and pulled, but the plastic housing broke on both sides. Not good quality! I phoned Aquasana and they offered a new housing for $39, but it's the same housing for 20+ years, so it will probably leak too at some point...
