Anyone can give some comment here?
Below are something i found out.

1) Waterco is having a promotion whereby by 1 micron W, get a porcelain gravity filter. Last for 5 years. RM 1800
2) Bacfree no filter and expensive, but last for 10years. Even warranty the clarity of the water. RM3800
3) Diamond, buy 1 free 1 from the list of products. However, not sure how good is it.

Heard diamond is good in the in-house. So was planning to put water or bacfree out-house while diamon for in-house.
Any comments?

Thanks.

TS has germ phobia??

Too hygiene not good for ur body. Somemore so many filter will filter out solid mineral which is needed by human body unless TS afford to take multivitamins & mineral everyday.

I suggest U take a user-friendly mantainance type for outdoor only.

not germ phobia.. but those filter i listed above won't filter out all minerals coz they are not ionizer filter (eg: nesh, coway) . furthermore with the quality water now days becoming from bad to worse, so better put 1 filter lor.
some says that drinking a health water can help us last for a few more years since we always drink water. tongue.gif

I have been a user of Bacfree since 2004 when I bought a house in Cheras. After much browsing and searching, I decided on Bacfree outdoor and under the sink filter as the product was the best in the market even though the price was much much higher than the rest of the rocket type outdoor filter available in the market.

I visited their HQ showroom in Subang Jaya and like their service provided by Ms. Peggy whom sadly had retired.

The installer a Mr.Yong was a great guy and was very professional and friendly whom sadly had also retired.

In total, I have installed 4 filters for my house and my mom’s house.

On Thursday 1st December 2011 morning, I called up their HQ to order a replacement of the indoor filter element as well as to fix a leaky outdoor filter.

That’s when I found out Mr. Yong and Ms. Peggy had retired and the beginning of a lousy service by Bacfree.

First of all, my call was picked up without any greetings and the tone of voice was like me owing her million of dollars!!

Ms. Peggy was much more courteous and sounded nicer.

The lady a Mrs. Soong had set the appointment for today (Saturday 10-12-2011). The time?

I was told to wait from morning to 1 pm.

Fine as I was not planning to go anywhere either.

I took the courtesy to call their HQ and to my biggest surprise I was told by Mrs. Soong that their coordinator had messed up and nobody is coming today!!

After keeping me on hold for ages, I was told that their service people could only come on Tuesday!!

Sigh…..imagine the agony of wasting my time waiting if I have not called and “remind” them about my appointment.

After around of ding-dong and “call me backs”, the service people are miraculously available to come today but will be late.

The best part is yet to come.

I then made a call to the big boss a Mr. Kee at 019-2213993 as his number was on my outdoor filter to raise a complaint with him.

FYI, his face is on all Bacfree ads and when I first bought the filters, I was told that I could call him day or night should be any problem.

Well, the number was still his but he had given me an even bigger disappointment.

I was told by Mr. Kee the followings:-

1. his staff only human and will make mistake.
2. since they had arrange for someone to come, I should accept it.
3. his staff already say sorry
4. he had sold 30,000 to 40,000 filters and cannot control everything
5. I’m very lucky because for new filter sold, his personal phone number is no longer printed.
6. I have already made a complaint to him and move on with my life

Pardon my following language:-

WHAT THE HELL SERVICE IS THIS!!!

So, for all new buyers of Bacfree please take note, although the product is good, the service is pathetic.

If anyone from Bacfree thinks that this is from a loser competitor, please feel free to check your records. I;m very very sure Mrs. Soong and Mr. Kee will remember my order.

ok sir. noted. so no bacfree for the moment. Most important is the service. I agreed with Diamond. Stay away from this brand. This year alone the classic drinking water system leak 3 times, and flooded my whole kitchen. Can you guys imagine that? So its a no no to me anymore for Diamond.

I am searching for reliable under sink design drinking water system. Checked out 3M. Not bad but still need to survey I guess. Next mayb will survey on Waterco.

Thanks.

Bacfree is my first choice, but not anymore after reading this forum. For me, no matter how good your product...it doesn't mean anything if your service is sux. So, good luck to Bacfree salesman.

Next choice will be Hydroguard of Coway.

I've been using Amway's espring because my cousin is an Amway member and he bought it for my family.
It's pretty good but i think it's kinda pricey.
