I liked everything about it except plastic parts. Had the plumber use copper ball valve and parts. The water quality is satisfactory. Thank you
Thank you for your review Gregory. I would like to add that since the water sits in and passes through the plumbing of your home, it looses quality and may absorb some metals/pipe buildup, etc. We recommend adding our drinking water system in combination with a whole house unit so to clean the water directly as it exits your faucet. With respect to the plastic valves, these are durable,NSF certified and are designed to last , we chose these valves parts to help keep costs down and because we know often times, plumbers/homeowners may choose to use another type of connection, depending on their piping setup.

Bought my unit about 8 weeks ago I think. Installed myself in a day after some careful planning. Been running on it for about 4 weeks now. Water quality is awesome and the difference is very noticeable. I have static pressure around 90psi and running pressure of the unit is about 60psi. Considering this is a 4 stage filter, that's pretty darn good. The better water has started to clean my old faucets and fittings so I'm starting to fix those around the house as well. Basically, instead of more buildup on old rubber and seals, the clean water is removing the gunk, you'll notice this from time to time with dark or clouded water from sink faucets mostly.
The only reason I didn't 5 start the Build Quality was the wall mount for the shorter pre-filter does not line up flush with the main 3 stage filter unit, and this caused my wall mount plans to be a little skewed. I was able to work around it though and my install turned out great in the end.
A few tips for those getting this on the install:
Put a reusable connection on both sides, threaded mates or sharkbite.
Install your own ball valve before and after the unit
Install a hose pipit (it's sold for hot water tanks and allow you to attach a garden hose) between the unit output and post unit ball valve.
This way you can turn off the house, turn off the main, and use the hose output to dump the filter pressure for either changing filters or working on the unit itself.
The other use is turning off the house (post unit ball valve) and using the hose pipit to flush new filters much easier.
I have pictures of my install if anyone is interested.
Thanks Pure Effect.
