under sink water filter

The water at my new house tastes terrible. Lots of clorine (not cloromine). I'm considering either a carbon filter or a reverse osmosis filter. Recommendations?

Carbon. Most RO filters have a carbon prefilter, anyway. If all you're trying to do is get rid of chlorine, RO is overkill.

A lot of chlorine means you'll need a lot of carbon. Get something with a solid carbon block.

Will you treat all the cold water from your kitchen tap? You could instead install a little drinking water spigot. It would probably save you money in the long run.

FWIW, we bought a PUR dispenser for the fridge. It holds 2 gallons, and has a spigot in the front. We like it a lot.

Got it at Lowes, but here's a link [www.amazon.com]

I use this Kenmore system [www.sears.com] It was rated the best by consumer reports. Works great.

We gots a filter on the fridge inside and a PUR filter on the tap. Only water we drink from.

We've used the 2 stage filter system (different brand than Sears, but otherwise identical to Earache's link) for 18-20 years in more than one home. Simple to install and to replace filters, and the filters last forever. We even got one for the fridge (water and ice lines) since we use that source for drinking water so much. Have that filter hidden on the counter besides the fridge. They work great, very low maintenance and overall low cost.

We have our own well with very good but very hard water. The previous owner installed a professional quality softener and a reverse osmosis / filter system with both carbon and particle filters. The water tastes great and is so mineral free that we can use the water in our water kettle and our steam iron with no scale problem.
