Where is it installed

Most filtration systems are installed under your kitchen sink. This is where you’re going to be using it the most. A separate water spout is installed on the counter for it. There’s a small storage tank and normally a 4 stage filter system. The system attaches to your cold water pipe for it’s water supply. It attaches to the tubular kitchen sink drains for the waste water. But you can install them in your basement if there’s access to the plumbing in the basement ceiling.

What kind of reverse osmosis water filter should I get

When plumbing customers ask me what type of system to get I usually recommend your basic Home Depot GE model. I prefer them because they work very well. They are a great value. And since the filters need to be replaced about every 6 to 9 months it’s easy to find the replacement filters. More expensive models may offer additional features but I like to keep things simple.
