I bought this Gizmo while walking around Walmart because I had seen it on tv. The water that comes from my tap tastes bad enough that I drink a lot of soda and some bottle water. I wanted to drink more water at home and saw that the large 23 cup system wasn't going to break the bank and bought one.
It was very easy to setup. Just clean out the Tank, Reservoir, Lid and install the filter. The filter simply screws into the reservoir from underneath. Now for the negative. They don't tell, or show how slow it filters. If you watch the commercial, you will see that they skip because of how long it takes. The reservoir doesn't hold as much water as the tank, and it take a long time for that amount to filter. If you lift the reservoir out and watch, it comes out in a thin stream, like a squirt gun. It slows when you put it back into the tank. I filled the reservoir and put it into the refrigerator and filled the reservoir again in the morning. The only other problem I found is that it is impossible to fill while in the refrigerator. I have to remove it, to the counter, pour water into it and return it to the fridge. The Positive, It does greatly improve the taste of my water. The TDS meter says my water reads over 800 ppm from the hot side and to over 500 ppm from the cold side. Down to 000 after filtering. Not as good tasting as bottled water, but very close, and much better and drinkable. I may get another to filter cooking water, and water for Tea and Coffee. Maybe a 4 gallon system.
