Actually the taste is great..

Actually the taste is great but you need to buy the filters with the charcoal in it as it adds back minerals taken out.

We are from Maine and are spoiled by Poland Springs water. Yet even at home we installed a dedicated two stage under sink drinking water system with it's own dedicated drinking water faucet.

A buddy who used to work for Poland Spring was even amazed at the taste. While not 100% it tastes about 90% as good as the best bottled water..

I think the original filter housing and one filter were about $35.00, the filter wrench about $4.00, about 6 feet of hose, some hose clamps, and a couple of barbed fittings for a total of about $50.00 + the cost of the Brita for the faucet which was about $20.00. So I'd say the whole project should come in around 8/10 of a boat buck or $80.00..

I got the filter and housing at Home Depot and the hose and fittings from Hamilton Marine..
