Epic Smart Shield w/ Dedicated Faucet
We've had this filter for a month and really like it. Set up was easy enough, but then we have had experience with under-the-counter filters before. This filter replaced a different brand that was starting to leak. No leaks with this filter at all. Water pressure, surprisingly, is barely diminished. Water taste is great. This filter is a big boy, and we found it best to install it near the front of the cabinet rather than trying to get it behind the existing plumbing. So far, so good, and we are very happy we chose this excellent filter. The list of what it filters is impressive. We use this as our main kitchen sink filter and love that our cooking water is now filtered too. For drinking water, we use water that has come through this filter and put it into an Aquagear pitcher to remove flouride as well. It's a great combination. Because the water has been filtered once with this filter, it flies through the Aquagear pitcher. A big thumbs up from us for the Epic filter!
I've had my Epic Smart Shield installed since November (7 months now) and the filter is still doing a bang-up job of keeping my city water clean, tasting good. Water pressure is still good but dropping a bit, I'm guessing it's time to order up another filter.
The kit is super easy to install, even if your hands are all thumbs. Highly recommended!
Been waiting for a nano-filtration filter that would also filter out the many hormones and pharmaceuticuls in the municipal water, which are too small in particle size for typical municipal filtration. Have been having mountain spring water delivered in recent years, in lieu of nano filtering - and now with the Epic am able to stop that expensive water delivery habit. My kitchen tap's cold water now tastes DELISH, and I am reassured and very happy to found Epic Water's filter!!! And, the cats like it too - I just use a small pan to transfer water to their fountain bowl every night.
Wondering why the Federal Gov hasn't purchased and distributed these to every home in Flint, Michigan???
I found this system while looking for something to remove an off taste & odor in our well water. The water always tested safe to drink, but now we actually can drink it. Nice not having to lug cases of water from the store anymore! Installation was quick and easy. Water flow from the kitchen faucet is almost as good as before installing this. Much better than having to drill another hole in the countertop to mount a dedicated tap for reverse osmosis system that trickles water so slow it takes forever to fill a pot. Very good product, and made in America!!!
This was easy to install and works well.
