I also have one. Been using it for about 2 months now. My TDS reading of my tap water was 418 and after the RO/DI it comes out 1. That is really good. Easy to set up and the place is good at support if you need it.

The piping is actually very easy to remove and cheap to replace if needed. As swiftwing7 said, it would be much safer than using the piercing valve.

I live in an apartment and I just use the aerator valve... I probably will tap it in a few weeks when I get the time though.
