Thanks folks. Loganj, excellent info!!!!!! I will check out the aqua fx units and do some more research. There are some on ebay with pressure gauge included, but I don't know what benefit this provides.................the pressure of the water entering the unit maybe?????

Assuming you know your water pressure at the tap, the pressure gauge on the unit will tell you when your sediment and carbon filters are clogging (sediment mostly). If you have 60psi at the tap and your unit gauge is showing 20psi after the sediment/carbon filters, you know they are clogging and need to be changed.
