I'm happy with this product, large capacity, what I was looking for. You just find a place in the kitchen !!! because we do not put it in the refrigerator. Please note: you must switch your Brita to empty completely because the axis of the tap is 1.5 cm above the bottom of the tank but is sleazy (almost empty!) Easy to fill either directly under the tap (but a little heavy when filled) or with a carafe or an empty bottle, which I find easier so I do not moves. The valve is sealed.
