I bought this product to replace the Brita pitcher we were using all day before. We go through about 2 gallons of filtered water a day, so cost and convenience sold me on this model. I wish I'd saved my receipt. The water that comes out of the filtered side is a spray, not a stream, so unless you have a container directly under the filter system, you'll get water splashed everywhere. I knew that the system would be bulky, so I was expecting it to get in the way of dishes, but I wasn't expecting it to reduce my water pressure so much. When I switch it to tap water, it comes out very cloudy, and on top of that you can't see the filter indicator light. I'm glad I kept my pitcher, since the convenience doesn't seem to be good enough to keep me with the faucet version. I just bought my filter about a month ago, and I've read reviews that go back two years. I'm surprised that Brita hasn't tried to address these concerns yet.
