    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I installed this filter last week and it works very well. I can immediately taste the difference. Easy to install as well!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great taste, poor lifespan I normally have very good water pressure at my house, but it drops after 4-5 months with this filter. This means that the operating cost of owning this system is three times what I originally expected. My water isn't THAT bad. No visible sediment, no discernible odor, just a bad taste and very mild staining on appliances. Now I'm considering finding some other system altogether because I $68/year turned in $200 a year to keep up on filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would not do without it! I have had one Filtrete Standard Whole house system installed for two years now and just installed my third replacement filter cartridge. Our water company blends reservoir water and also from their wells. It passes water quality tests, but also contains some mineral and soluble iron plus chlorine. The iron leaves brown rings in sinks and also stains toilets at the water line. The problem has essentially gone away. Friends and relatives from other parts of the country remark on how good our water is. Best investment we ever made. We wish we had done it 33 years ago in this house.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought two systems, one is missing large O Ring Bought 1 Basic and 1 Standard plus refills for each. Installed and water went everywhere. Upon inspection 1 unit is missing the Large O-Ring. . I guess I wasted money on this. . Oh and the coupon in the box for a discount on future refills expired in 2013!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more skunk smell! We moved into a new (old) house last spring and discovered that the well water smelled like skunk/sulpher. The inspector suggested a whole-house charcoal filter and after some online research decided to try this as the seemingly best bang for the buck. Also decided to have 2 filters installed - a Basic version to get rid of the sediment/rust, etc. and then this one for odor filtering and w/a smaller, 3 micron filter, get rid of even more particles. Combo worked like a charm! Finally replaced them this year and house water is still smell-free!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well and long service life Not sure why the negative reviews are here but I installed this filter last winter as a pre filter for our new water softener and plumbing system. I chose this system over others available due to the long 12 month filter change interval (most were 4-6 months) and honestly it looks cool with bright green and blue colors, not that I spend that much time in the basement staring at it but... I have to trust 3M on the filtering rating but as large a company as 3M is I'm sure it was tested and offers the rated 3 micron filtration and assume the negative reviews are incorrect installs and contaminated downstream lines. We do have city water and didn't have any prior issues with sediment, rust, scale... just hard water with plenty of chlorine. After installing I have had no issues or problems from the filter. Pros: 1: 12 month service life. 2: Easy change, 1/4 turn to remove and install filter. 3: Filter is well made and sturdy. 4: Looks cool and does it's job. 5: Available online from the rain forest place ;) 6: Cool little time minder thingy that lets you know when to change filter. 7: No loss of flow or pressure after 12 months of use (three person household). Cons: 1: Large filter that isn't recyclable, huge chunk of plastic that goes to landfill. 2: Mounting head is a little flimsy, would be happy to see beefier mounting tabs, (I know that this is the filter review but...) 3: Not available at big box stores in my area that I'm aware of. 4: All the pictures on 3M website and even the box do not show correct mounting and plumbing procedures? 5: Initial installation is probably more that many DIY types can do on their own. (I still know that this is the filter review) 6: Terrible 3M websites make it hard to look up, search or even find information about their products. Even when you do find it there's not much in the way of details.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Filter This filter does not filter everything that it claims to do. I get black grit, and rust that is not blocked by this filter. A waste of money.
