    Re: Looking for undersink water filter

    I think I will stick with what the heart doctor recommends health wise is more important than replensing a ro system in a shorter time period.I doubted the heart specialist until I discovered Sarasota is ranked tenth in the world for heart specialists.

        Re: Looking for undersink water filter

        I saw an undersink water filter WP-2 made by WATTS at HomeDepot. The price is good, abut $150.00. Is it a good filter? Anyone has experience with it?

          The WP-2 is not, I think, a true reverse-osmosis system. It is a two-stage filter, with a 5-micron and a 1-micron filter cartridge. Without adding a pressure tank, you'll get a 1/2 gallon per minute flow, at 60 PSI pressure.

          Having said that, I would strongly suggest you take the advice of a previous poster and put the burden of water quality back on your water district. You're paying for the water, yet it isn't up to standards, right?

          Please, though, if you do consider reverse osmosis, also consider this:

          1) The process dumps several gallons of water down the drain for each gallon of treated water. Water that has already BEEN treated by your water district.

          2) Good, healthy minerals are removed from your drinking water. Take a look at the store. See those green bottles of expensive European water? Yep. MINERAL water.

          3) Herbicides and pesticides are NOT removed by reverse osmosis.

          4) Unless the filters are changed per schedule, and used regularly, you pose the risk of bacteria contamination and system failure.

          Think of it this way. You buy gasoline from a service station, but it has dirt in it, fouling your engine. Who is responsible for that drop in product quality, and who should do a better job at filtration?
