    Rating 1 to 5: 5 stars

    Summary: This has been a fantastic water filter. At 1 pounds it's relatively light for a microfilter. Have never had a clog. Got 2 years of moderate use from one filter, although the filter and internal pump showed signs of imminent contamination (both were really dirty after 2 years of zero maintenance). No mechanical issues, and I have yet to need to lubricate the pump arm. Original tubing is still holding its shape. Remarkable!
