Questions & Answers
Could you tell me how much water the bottle holds?
About 2 1/2 gallons are contained in this container, but my ceramic dispenser can hold another 2 or 3 gallons and this works by itself just fine. It has to be kept full and the instructions say not to let the filter get too dry. Although it appears that the bottle holds 5 gallons, only a little more than half of it is the holding tank for
It leaked all over the place when I tested it with a ceramic water crock. ?
In the past, I have used a ceramic crock that works perfectly. As well as a plastic collar, I use a nylon collar. Does that help the seal form? As far as I'm concerned, I have had no problems. Purchased this item and it has proved to be Be careful not to overfill the container - I think that was the only time there was
Is there any way to "soften" the water with this method?
Although I'm not sure if this would work for salt, but I get a lot of chlorine taste and smell in my water and it has really reduced that taste and smell, so it's probably good for salty tastes too. This machine has around seven to eight filters.

A lot of algae is growing
I spent my money in vain. With the pandemic, I thought I'd start using my water dispenser and I thought it would be a good idea to save time and money by not having to go to the store to get water or carry 5 gallon refill bottles back and forth. For the first 5 months I used the bottle, and then one morning I was convinced I was seeing things since water at the bottom of the bottle looked green. I noticed algae growing around the top of the filter and at the bottom of the bottle when I inspected it closely. As a 30-something, I contacted Amazon, but they said that I was too old to buy They informed me that they couldn't help me unless I contacted the manufacturer on the same day I returned the items. I asked the manufacturer for a refund so perhaps I can try out something else since I don't trust this system and am afraid of what will happen after a new filter is installed. The manufacturer said they weren't willing to refund me and would send me a new filter and to wash out my existing bottle and flush out my dispenser, which has algae in it now too, which I am quite alarmed about. There has not yet been a filter delivered to me.

It was good at Vitapur, but not at Greenway
Water had trouble flowing through greenway filters due to leaks and the length of time it took for the water to flow through. In order to see if the new system would work better, I bought a new system. Not at all. created a great, efficient and effective product. Greenway failed to build it. I do not see how the filters can be installed in the system without leaking and the filters take a long time I bought brand new ones, and they act and function as if they are completely blocked.
Also, be wary of sellers who advertise Vitapur-built filters, then charge a premium price and then ship a Greenway-built filter that is garbage.

My TDS is around 380 in Arizona, and there are no water testing facilities near me
I bought the filter, read the instructions, soaked it in water for 30 minutes as suggested, ran water through it for about 2 gallons and then tested it. Only 320 TDS was removed from the water after testing the filter. The TDS meter I bought from Amazon was calibrated with various bottled waters and then compared with tap water to ensure accuracy. My Vitapur GWF8 was returned, so I ordered a replacement, just in case I had received a faulty filter, but with the replacement, the same results were achieved. In spite of being supplied with filters, these are not intended to filter heavy solids they are there to remove odors as well as It is not recommended to buy this setup unless your tap water is almost drinkable. A total of 2 units were ordered, but 2 units were returned -( I'm sorry about that.

Saving lives with this is a lifesaver
The top bottle does not have to be removed, and I am able to fill it by lifting the lid at the top and adding a few cups of tap water at a time. It is virtually impossible for me to go without hot or cold water. Ice tea or cold coffee can be made with ice water, hot coffee can be made with hot water or just a cold drink of water as well. This product is convenient and safe for people of all ages and does not require them to be old.

My floors are wet with so much water
I am crying. There seems to be a problem similar to what a lot of reviewers have had in that it won't shut off the flow and ends up flooding the First, I tried it with a Knox water cooler and it worked for a while. After a couple months, I woke to a flood in my kitchen. This point, I thought that there was something wrong with the water cooler, so I tried to address it in every way I could. As this was my first time trying a Honeywell dispenser, I chose to try a named brand of the company. I have had so many floods with this product that the 300 dollar table I bought specifically for the table top coolers has not been damaged. wanted this to work because carrying water bottles It looks like I won't be purchasing this again and will likely have to sell the extra filters I bought. In addition to rating it a full 5, if I could confidently use it without damaging another table and my floors, I would give it a 6.

The majority of the reactions were positive, but there was one negative
I love not buying 4-packs. Loading a new one every two days on 5 gallon water bottles and bringing them into the house. The advantage to not using a lot of plastic (even though I recycle) is that I am not wasting anything. In addition, I love that I don't have to pay for water every week! We love this water jug since it is refillable and works great for our So I often refill the water container since we use so much water. About two times a day, I fill up (the jug) a large stainless steel bowl close by. (three kids, four sports, and two adults means lots of water bottle filling!)
There is only one negative the water pressure is poor. In the fourth paragraph, there are Five gallon bottles from the store had an airtight seal, which caused the bottle to rush out of the spout almost immediately. Which, if you're filling up a 10-pack, would be the most efficient way to do it.

It would have been nice to get it earlier! The search for something like this would have been a lot easier if I had done it There has been a lot of good and bad in my life You will save money this way! I found it easy to install, and everyone is able to keep the pit topped off
Neither an odd taste nor an aftertaste have been noticed yet, as our system [at home] is, we use a water filter under the sink to fill a pitcher for dumping into the reservoir - that way we're not using our rainwater. I have been very satisfied with how well the unit works. In order to use the unit, we removed the collar and piercing valve from the bottle, assembled it, plugged the device into the water cooler, filled it up, and it worked fine. Having used it for a couple of weeks now, it has been a great experience! It can save you a lot of money!.
