Quote from ZUKHAN :
Has anyone considered or have a whole house filter system as well? If yes, which ones do you recommend? I am thinking of whole house filter too because the water that we get is very hard, it leaves white powdery deposits on our facets and shower heads and if I drink that filtered from the fridge, I feel very heavy after drinking that water. So considering RO for kitchen sink to drink and cook from and whole house carbon filter system for showers laundry etc.
A more sensible solution is probably a water softener before city water enters your home plumbing. You can then add water filter system for potable water.

Don't mind the taste of my tap water but love that bit of a different taste from bottled water, does this accomplish that?

Botteled water is same as the one from RO except for the spring water and mineral water.

Try the costco kirkland bottled water or the RO water from wholefoods / water shops and see if you like it. The water from waterdrop RO should taste similar.

Quote from JSR0217 :
Tankless RO is not intended for residential use, where one would dispense relatively small amounts of water frequently. Search for "TDS creep". Basically, when the system is idle, ions will remigrate into the filtered water that resides in the system, so the quality of water that comes out from the faucet initially (this is what you are most likely to drink) is the worst quality water that you would get, with a few hundreds TDS reading. A way around is to dispose of a few cups of water when you dispense water (EVERYTIME, especially after idled for overnight), then store the water after in a jar. This is not practical thus I do not think that tankless systems are intended for residential use. The TDS meter embedded in this system is misleading. I would suggest to buy a meter and test it yourself - I did and returned the system.
You will have the same issue you describe with tank systems. When you get water from the tank, the RO system will kick on and you will get "tds creep" into the tank. I also don't find it that bad. My tap is over 400 tds and my tds creep is only 40tds or so.

Quote from caycarem :
So much mis-information about this RO system, so I will attempt to clear up a few things. First, I have been using this filter for 6 months and it's going strong, and have used a 6 stage iSpring tank RO filter for 5 years before that, so my comments came from my experience with the filter.

1. Installation is much easier than the usual tank RO, I'd say 3x faster, and a lot less prone to leaking due to less connections to make.
2. dispensing speed is at least 2x slower than tank RO, about 1 tbsp of water comes out then pause for 2 seconds, then continuous stream of water comes out. I lose patience most of the time and only fill half of my drinking cup. This is its worst weakness and my biggest issue with it.
3. The trade off for slow speed is supposedly cleaner water which doesn't sit and collect in a tank for ages. This seems believable, but I would have no idea how dirty the RO Tank usually is.
4. Water tastes just like tank RO or my Bosch fridge water
5. Definitely more compact thank a tank RO, maybe 1/3 to 1/4 of the space required
6. Requires an outlet
7. cost a lot more to purchase and the filters are also more expensive. mine is still good so far. wastes less water than tank RO.
8. For those who like mineral taste, a new addon filter should be coming soon (likely in months) to reintroduce minerals back into the water (likely equivalent of stage 7 of tank RO). I know this because they are sending me one for testing. If you tell them you're interested on amazon or their website they may consider sending you one.
9. TDS display is fairly accurate, mine is around 19. my own meter usually shows 21.

Overall I would still recommend this RO system over the usual tank RO, mostly due to compact size, much nicer looking even under the sink, and easier to install. If dispensing speed or budget is your concern, I'd get a Tank RO instead.
What is your tds at the tap? These systems never say how efficient they run. My RO system takes my 450 tds tap water down to 4 tds, which is 99% efficient. It then goes thru my DI filter to take it to 0 tds.

I replaced my RO system with this and I couldn't be happier. The water taste the same and it's cheaper.
CuZn UC-200 Under Counter Water Filter - 50K Ultra High Capacity - Made in USA Lifespan, Up to 5 Years per Filter
I called the company and they sent me the adapter to hook it up to my RO foccet.

What do you guys think of the Ultra Filtration system instead.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086YH4...XFb2H585FG

Seems like a little less clean but keeps the minerals and has less water waste.

I'm debating between the two, and both are better than my current Brita, but I might be willing to give up some up the Filtration for minerals and less waste.

Quote from jemhunter :
I got this unit for the same price during prime day. While doing my research, reading various websites, there were few claims that I find inaccurate and must be some marketing BS.

1) hook up is much easier. FALSE! There are still as many tubes and connections that need to be made. Just the connection to the tank is now gone. So barely simpler at best.
2) better water quality. FALSE. About the same as my old unit. By quality, I mean TDS level as that's the only way to measure. The water does not taste as good as my old unit but that is subjective and I got used to the new taste after two weeks.

Couple of things to watch out for:

1) make sure an electrical outlet is nearby. It has an internal pump to push water to its faucet. Models with a tank don't need electricity to run. That also means you can't get filtered water during power outages.
2) replacement filters are expensive. I am mean darn expensive.

I don't regret my purchase. I had one with a tank that was a pain in the neck to replace the filters. It's much easier with this. This is the main deciding factor as I don't feel like crawling under the sink with my bad back.
Big thing I think you missed. Models with a pump are used to make the machine much more efficient when dealing with low pressure incoming water. Has nothing to do with pushing water to the faucet even if that's what u noticed. The pump is the reason for the great waste to clean water ratio.

Unless you have a very specific need for this form factor, I would suggest you look into an RO system with standardized rather than proprietary filters. The filter replacement on these are like 4x the cost of a quality system that takes normal filters.

Quote from obergm :
Reverse osmosis water wastes a lot of water flushing our the membranes. It also depletes your body of minerals and makes you more thirsty than the same filter without the RO.

Unless you are trying to purify non-potable water it's unnecessary.

A simple multi stage filter gets the bad stuff in city water out and leaves the minerals in. Doesn't waste water down the drain either.
AFAIK, nothing else removes heavy metals from water except RO or distillation.

Quote from Dr. J :
as to your minerals comment - this is why most bottled waters will have minerals ADDED - they're good for you AND they make the water taste better.
I'm not sure that "most" add minerals as it seems only the big names do. And they only add a tiny amount, and Dasani for example only adds "magnesium sulfate, potassium chloride, and salt". I would rather get those minerals from food, or from a good quality supplement, rather than whatever quality supplements Dasani uses.
