Ten years ago we bought our first Sears RO. We were very pleased. Our son lives there now, and it still does a fine job. He replaced the RO cartridge after 7 years. We moved and bought a new RO for this home. We love it as well. Both times we mounted the tank and filters in basement to be cooler water temp and easy access to change filters. Both homes had city water. One house did not have a water softener, the second did. RO does fine with both. I had a plumber do the installation, but it looked easy.
We just had a proffesional install the system.. It took so long to purge it. 24 hours!!! Now we don't feel that the pressure at the refrigerator and faucet is enough.
It works fine, fairly easy to install. Not economical for replacement filters. Current prices of replacement filters: Pre and Post Filters (Sears) 42-38056 $49.99 Reverse Osmosis Membrane (Sears Parts Direct) 3857705 $58.67 Plus shipping = More than the whole system cost if the first place. .

I previously owned a GE model and it was spectacular but I have always thought of myself as a loyal sears customer so when I moved, I switched to Kenmore. It was a mistake. After every time you use it, it will make a gurgle sound until it is done filling the tank. Usually about 15-20 minutes. I gave it three stars because the water does come out perfect, however, there are systems that also give you perfect water and do not gurgle for 20 minutes!
We just got the system. The one of the catridges had the broken casket on it -- the store changed the catridge. The system was installed by the plumber, and it was still leaking -- so it was fixed, I don't know for how long. We purged the water filtration (ran the water through) for the longer time than it was requested in the manual for the system -- the filtered water still have the bad taste. Also, when you pour water into the the pan or some volume, you could see the thin oily colour gray film of particles flowing on the top of the water. We ran water through the system again: no changes.
