11. Are there any disadvantages of the Point-of-Entry (POE) system compared to the Point-of-Use (POU) system

  • The POE system has a higher initial cost but the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency offer no interest loans through its Potable Water Program to cover the cost of installation.
  • The POE system requires approximately 6 square feet of floor space in the basement, though it does not take up any space under the kitchen sink like a POU system would.
