What does express water have over ispring and apec?
Well it has a more ornate water spiget.
ispring has a clear housing, for convenient visual inspection of the first filter.
apec has the highest ratings.
All the filters should be compatible with each other.
I just bought the apec on prime day, and now am buying the ornate spiget for it for $32, as I don't like the one that came with it.

Forgot about ukoke.
ukoke usually goes on sale cheaper that the others, for around $130 typically.
The first filter housing is clear.
It has a pressure gauge.
But there are some complaints of leakage. (maybe from pressure guage?)

Let me tell you about this multi stage system being a past and present owner of these multi cart system. DON'T... Buy the higher end 3 filter biz systems that have snap on cart systems, instead of these system with tons of housing you have to open with a special wrench and lets not get started on the small ones on top, it looks like some 12 year kids that went crazy in his garage.

The higher end 3 filter systems work much better, PLUS you just twist off the cart, which you are more likely to do then tear this thing a part 2 times a year and once every 3 years for the reverse osmosis filter .... Check them out 1st

Never even looked at those 3 filter systems.
I'll check them out for some good post purchase research, thanks.

Why is this a deal from ebay at $169 instead of every day price in Amazon at $159?

I like to install these types of systems in the basement before the water softer softer, but after a whole house filter. This makes changing the filters easy and doesn't tie up space under the sink. Just run a long 1/4 tube (protected in pvc if you like) to the sink

its not a FANTASTIC deal, but decent. You get an extra set of filters. Basically you get about and extra 6 - 9 months of use before you need to worry about buying filters. Maybe 40 dollars savings.

That is all they offer, convenience. You are stuck buying the cartridges from them and they are normally more expensive since you have to pay for the housing each time. They are usually smaller also and are on the high end of micron rating which is 5 micron. Personally I use a .25 micron prefilter and .5 micron carbon filter. I get 5 to 7+ years out of my ro membrane with my tap water running around 450 tds and I get a tds of 3 to 4 after the membrane and then that is taken down to 0 tds by my DI filter.

FYI to everyone, if your city is using chloramines instead of chlorine, the carbon filter may not take it all out and the ro membrane will not remove it. There are special prefilters made to take out chloramines.

How long is your run of 1/4" tubing? No issues with water pressure at the the faucet? Nit sure this is the solution for everyone's situation, but definitely a good idea where the run to the sink from the basement is relatively short.

I have this exact system but with a 6th stage for 2 years. One of the best things I've ever bought. Your situation, more precisely the condition of your tap water, will likely determine if this would work well for you.

For starters, I live in a house with pretty hard water with somewhat high amount of chlorine. Prior to buying this, I was using a Britta pitcher to get rid of the chlorine (thus spending money on those filters) and using a coffee machine that required soft water (thus spending more money on those filter). I've cut my annual spend on filters by about 70%. There is some caveat there, as I have the 6-stage system, and the 6th stage has the most expensive filter. So the 5-stage system would probably cut my annual spend on filters by 90%.

Secondly, I have looked into a full-house system. They are another magnitude more expensive, both to install and to maintain, to achieve that kind of flow rate. I ultimately decided my tap water wasn't THAT bad, and went with this system. It is now installed under my kitchen sink. We drink and cook using that water.

Lastly, to share my $.02 on an earlier comment regarding DIYability. I consider myself reasonably handy. With this system, there is definitely a learning curve, both with the initial installation and the semi-annual filter changes. If you haven't done various plumbing projects before around the house, I would recommend getting a plumber to install it. The time I installed it and the first time I changed the filters, I was nervous about potentially mis-installing something and getting a leak. Two years into it, I no longer dread those filter change sessions. They actually give me a weird sense of accomplishment when I see the discoloration on the used filters, like a "F U!" to the contaminants.
