Installation a bit challenging but great product
Following the Installation Instructions was going great until I got to the "Feed Water Supply" section. As the supply valve lines in my house are 3/8 inch connections, I had to refer to the Optional Installation 1 section, which is a mess!!
I had to go back to Home Depot to purchase adapter hoses to make the 1/2 inch Water Supply Fitting (provided with the kit) work. (GE, why not just include a 3/8 inch Water Supply Fitting in the kit?).
DIYPlumber's comments on using a blow dryer to heat the black 1/4" tubing for faucet installation should be included in the Installation Instructions.
Installation Instructions should also include a section after Storage Tank Installation detailing how to disconnect each tubing (1 at a time) from the bracket, route the tubing throughout the installation area to avoid inadvertent snags and pulls, sharp corners, etc, then cut the tubing to fit and reinsert into the bracket. Once all tubing has been routed as desired, then secure in place.
The last item is that the Pre- and Post filter cartridges are recommended for a 6 month change-out cycle, but there is no mention anywhere in the manuals explaining when the RO Membrane Cartridge should be changed out.
All in all, an excellent system once installed,,, very much worth the money. Installation would be much more straightforward if the kit included a 3/8" Water Supply Fitting and the instructions were a bit clearer.

R/O system works great!
This system was a bit of a challenge to install since our home was a resale so we didn't exactly know where all the lines went to. My husband figured it out and it has been working great since. Love it!

No more fetching water from a store. No more running out of water.
Its so convenient and no foul taste from water.
I would recommend it to anyone.

Great to save on all those bottles of water
Although the air bladder broke after 4 years of use I still enjoy having our water purified by reverse osmosis.

Easy install, good performance. Some materials could be of higher value.
Got tired of buying activated charcoal filters, so we got this one. Installation was not complicated, but required attention. Plastic water lines needed some heating with a hair dryer to soften up before putting on the brass connectors in the faucet assembly. The plastic connector for the water supply line should be made of brass or some other higher value material. It is made of plastic and while I hope it holds, the plastic threads require caution - do not over-tighten. Not sure if I trust the push-in connectors for the water line, the faucet and the tank for the long haul, but so far they are tight and do not leak. Water quality is great and the storage container holds suffient water for a family when everybody wants to get water at the same time :-)

This product does what it is suppose to do.
We put this in our motorhome as we have it in Arizona and the water is very bad. The RO really cleans it up.

Noisy waste flow
The unit is less than 4 months old. Noise of waste water is continuous and loud. I do not recommend this product

Why did I wait so long?
I suppose I was afraid the installation would be too difficult, but really, I don't know how they could have made it any easier. The instructions were clear and easy to understand, and everything worked exactly as expected. I had one question about the indicator light not flashing during normal operation, and the customer service person I reached told me the instructions I got were for a different model, so this was normal. The water is fantastic. No more lugging bottles to fill, only to find the machine at the store is out of service again. Glad I didn't wait any longer. Going to get one for my daughter's home too, and in the meantime, she can fill her bottles at our house.
