Rated 4 out of 5 by Pinball83 Inexpensive and works!
We bought this filter specifically remove the chlorine taste from our city water, and it does that wonderfully. The faucet is a nice chrome like finish, and it flows quite well.
Installation requires some know how. If you dont have an extra hole in your sink to mount the faucet, you'll need a holesaw. 1.5" is standard hole size. If you have a stainless sink like me, get a bi-metal holesaw. To get water to your filter system, it comes with a threaded adapter that is supposed to be installed behind your cold water valve. This works great for people who have threaded pipes. I dont. My water valve is installed with a compression fitting. So I went to the hardware store and bought a new $14 water valve that has the additional outlet for the 1/4" water line. I just threw the provided adapter away. I would honestly recommend the new valve like that anyway, that way you can turn off the water supply to your filter system very easily, if you ever needed to. If you buy the new valve, dont forget to buy the little insert and compression ring for the 1/4" water line too!
The hardest part of the install for me was removing the old compression ring. There are special tools out there to do it, but pliers and elbowgrease can do it.
PS - We bought this to replace a faucet mounted filter system. It worked well, but the weight of it actually caused 2 faucets to start leaking at the base!
Rated 4 out of 5 by ryemmom Easy to install - water tastes good...
Great price...the only thing I still have an issue with is finding someone to assist you when picking up items at the store. But other than that, great price, easy to install, easy to use and water is good. It serves the purpose!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reddrick Great Product no need to buy the US-EZ-3 or 4
I just recently installed the US-EZ-1 under sink drinking water filter system. Comes mostly with everything you need (mostly). It is nice that Culigan made it so if you wanted to go up in filtration like the 3 or 4 filters later you can; so there was no need to purchase the more expensive set ups.
My set up under the sink; all my copper piping is soldered so it is a little difficult to add in stuff or get rid of stuff if you are not a plumbing expert. To install this correctly and I believe that most new faucets have the compression/swivel fittings (3/8") you are going to need a special adapter that I found at Home Depot. Since the filter system uses a 1/4" OD plastic tubing, so the adapter for my set up needed to have a female 3/8" npt swivel connection to connect to my cold water shut off valve and then a 3/8" male compression fitting for my normal faucet cold water conn and then a 1/4" compression fitting for the 1/4" plastic tubing to the filter.
you can find this adapter here http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-202257761/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=048643927469&storeId=10051#.UIqbQ8W-igY

So far no leaks and it works great, the EZ-1 filter gets rid of that nasty chlorine taste of town water, gives you a nice clean taste. Hopefully this system last a long time.
Total installation took about 1 hour just because it is tough getting in under sinks (no space). You will need a knife to cut the tubing, a couple wrenches (one being channel locks, and the other being a monkey wrench or what have you), also a drill to mount the filter holder to the wall or cabinet.
