Great Solution for a Super problem Review by Mama Martha
Our water was colored with rusty residue and the taste was awful. The filters provide a quick easy and almost-miraculous resolution. Not a day goes by that I don't appreciate the clear and tasty water throughout our home. (Posted on 8/6/12)

Filters Dirt & Rust Review by John
Put this on a city water line in a commercial building that has great rust and dirt problems in the water. Went 4 months on the first filter - too long. Will cut it down to 3. Works great in my big blue filter housing. (Posted on 1/9/13)
The Finest at the best price I can find Review by Country Livin'
It is great to be able to buy the very same filter my local "C******* Man" company sells but for 1/3 the price. The Big Blue filter removes a ton of manganese sediment from our well water for the entire house supply. Thanks Discount Filter! (Posted on 4/22/13)
