I had been using Brita for years and it never seemed to work well. I got a new Samsung refrigerator and the filtered water was worse than the Brita.
I now have a Zero Water system and the water is amazing. It has no taste or smell and is very soft. Excellent buy. I don't know why people are complaining about it.
Worth the money! The company gives you a meter to measure the particles in the water and my tap water was 219, Brita water was 190, Samsung filtered water from the fridge with new filter was 209 and Zerowater was 001.
