    I just changed my Amway Carbon Filter and UV Bulb. Costs me RM 1.50 per day. Annual ritual. Change the filter and uv bulb and forget about it for the rest of the year. No boiling required. Really hassle-free.

    Have been using my filter for 8 years now. No complaints except to change the water hose once. I expect another 10 years from my filter, provided Amway continue to supply the parts and filters. Filter equipment cost works out to be RM 150 per year.

    Overall, it cost me less than RM 700 per year - RM 2 per day. 15 litres per day. RM 1.33 per litre. Not a bad deal.

    I am looking for a low cost , low maintenance water filter. I don't mind boiling water. It's for drinking purpose and not for whole house. That is, installed in the kitchen.

    Low cost mean less changing of water filter.

    Low maintenance means don't have to wash water filter or spare parts.

    Can anybody recommend one ?

    Diamond is pretty aggresive in their advertising and cost a bomb but is it really good when compared to others ?

    IMHO, looking at the water quality we have, getting a merely indoor filter system without an external filteration system will be very taxing on the unit. That's why I go with both external and indoor unit. I just fixed membrane type filter for external and another something look similar to like Diamond as internal filteration system.

    Too expensive. Can't afford both external and internal for poor guys like me.

    Well, you can get both within RM2k, plus a free water heater.

    I don't understand this sentence of yours, 'the best product sell the best'.
    Do you mean that only the best product is sold by the best company? I don't know the best part, but if certifications by NSF and WHO is not good enough, what is? I believe we are a generally educated lot who wouldn't just buy a product based on its aggressive promo right?
    Looking for a low maintenance outdoor unit. However, just to mae a comment on the above, I tried to serach for National/Panasonic and Amway products on the NSF website (http://www.nsf.org/Certified/Common/...s&Program=DWTU) but there's none on their list. Can you enlighten me? Tks.

    Outdoors I use one of those no-brand fibre core filters. Cost RM35 or so from local hardware shop. Though recently i've changed the filter element to a carbon-type one, which you can also get from hardware shops. More about it here

    Indoors for drinking water I use a bacfree undersink unit (RM730), and I don't boil. Can drink direct from tap. My write-up on that job here
