I've had this unit for several years and recently they started raising the prices on the replacement filters. I used to buy a complete set for about $114 but they just charged me almost $200 for a set of filters. For $54 dollars more I could buy a brand new unit. The units work well, best I've had. But they are not ripping us off on replacement filters. While I'm using up the set I just bought I will be researching and will change to another brand. I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER SEARS UNIT because of their rip off prices on replacement filters.

I don't even like the style of this faucet, but the fact that it is only available in chrome makes me want to return the whole system. I want a brushed steel/nickle option but that isn't available because I'm not supposed to be able to match this to my kitchen faucet or stainless steel appliances. I would just replace the faucet for another brand's more stylish faucet BUT the filter indicator light is on this faucet so unless I feel like paying a plumber to uninstall & reinstall a new unit I'm stuck with this ugly look I hate.

This is my third unit. It produces great tasting water. We were fracked before it became chemical wise. EPA says its gone, but just to be sure I have these for drinking water.
In only a few months this developed an internal leak at some factory plastic welded joint and the slow leak ruined very expensive cabinets. Sears will not even warranty the product (yet has a 1 year warranty) and absolutely won't discuss the water damage done. Avoid at all costs.

This is an excellent reverse osmosis drinking water system. We have had 3 systems over the past 20 years and just replaced our old one which was the same model. It developed a leak but we had it for quite a few years. Filters are easy to change and the water tastes great. My husband installed it but he has some plumbing experience. I was without one for about two weeks and really missed it. My mom has the same one so I was getting R.O. water from her until my husband bought and installed our new one. R.O. purification is the best water purification available and the water tastes amazing. Very smooth and clean.

We've had this unit about 3 years. Our water is HARD and this unit puts out lovely tasting water. My wife said that the dentist noticed that plaque buildup had lessened drastically right away. Filters are easily obtainable at the store in town, and we live in a remote area. I've let the pre/post filters run on too long and have to replace the RO filter. I'm hoping that is as easy. We plan to get this same unit for our daughter's new house. This unit makes water a pleasure to drink.
Bought this unit to replace a prior unit that worked without fail or leakage for nearly 15 years. This one leaked like a sieve from multiple connections immediately. The only connections that didn't leak were the compression fittings that I used to T off the unit to feed my ice maker. The collett system is garbage and they shouldn't even use it. Don't buy this unit, you are setting yourself up for disappointment and frustration. I bought mine today and will return it tomorrow! What a complete waste of time! Burned up several hours of my life that I will never get back! Junk!
