@caisburning: I hate when people call "first world problems," as if to guilt someone for caring about something.

The point is not that "OMG I HAVE NO TIME FILL MY GLASS FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASTER!!!!" The point is that alternatives, which hardly cost any more at all, do a better job of filtering AND fill your glass faster.

How is that worthy of scorn?

ps you saying "first world problems" while using a computer to comment on a coupon site on the internet is hilarious. I hope you see it too.

@joemarfice: First World problems. If you don't have 12 seconds to wait for a glass of filtered water, you may have some other more serious issues you need to investigate first.

@jhaywire: I certainly appreciate your post.

It seems what we're losing in speed, we make up in having no filter replacements. Assuming each filter replacement does last 6 months for your alternative option, you're looking at an additional $570 over ten years.

You choose, Wooters!

@jhaywire: Thought you were overstating it, until I did the math. 15 sec/pt, 8 sec to fill a /baking/ cup - most of my glasses will take 12 sec to fill. That's slow!

Nothing against the product but I've stopped buying from 1 sale a day. Always takes forever to get your product. Currently waiting on a comforter I bought a month ago, Really? a month to ship? Even contacted them, said it will be here in 1-20 days. Really? Thanks!

I have a similar system although mine, I think, says it needs a new filter yearly. (Or something like that -- I'd have to go back and read the directions) The thing is it does take up a certain amount of room and it is a little bit tippy. It is certainly better than the Pur that it replaced but it is not the permanent solution for me.

@jhaywire: "parasitic cysts"? Really? ;->

1/2 gallon per minute flow is kinda slow. Decent under-the-sink filters will give you as good or better filtration with 2-3 times the flow. They require a little installation but nothing a basic "do-it-yourselfer" can't handle.

No longer fits today's faucets so I am out.

Okay, I seriously considered buying one of these awhile back from one of the other DAD sites (bensoutlet I think). I've been looking at long-term sink filters for awhile - know nothing about this though.

Anybody have input?
