Tap Water Filter From Foster and Smith?

Aquarium Water Quality: Tap Water Filter

Has anyone had any experience with this filter? The reviews seem pretty consistent. And is a customer favorite. I don't have a place for a full RO system because I live on campus.

Any thoughts?

IMO, for that price it's worth a try.

On the good side it can get 10 gallons an hour and 50-150 gallons on a single cartridge

How many gallons it gets before replacement depends on the quality of your water to start with, and how many ppm TDS you're willing to live with before replacing it. If you're looking for 1-2 ppm TDS water, you'll probably get less than 20 gallons out of it.
