Great water, low cost, easy maintnenance

We installed this system about 8 months ago. Initially I was disappointed because the volume of water seemed way less than what the literature promised. I called technical support and they explained that with our extremely hard water and ordinary water pressure (set at 55 psi) we would need an auxiliary pump to boost the pressure to 85 psi. The cost was about $90, which left the total system cost well below the Home Depot offerings. Fortunately the pump was very easy to install. We now get all the water we need for cooking, drinking, ice, etc. probably about 5 gallons a day. If we needed more I would opt for a larger pressure reservoir. It takes about 20 minutes to refill the reservoir when I tap it for our morning coffee. Bonus: the auxiliary pump makes a little chugging sound that reminds my of my favorite Humphrey Bogart movie, 'The African Queen.
