The pros and cons of PUR filters

Pur water filters and the Pur water pitcher are an affordable way to add fluoride filters to your water treatment system, but their price sacrifices a good amount of quality. As an ordinary tap water purifier, Pur will meet your needs, but PUR water filtration only goes so far in terms of being a reliable drinking water filter.

General assumptions

A great website called Waterfiltercomparisons.com provides a great way for the consumer to find the best performing fluoride filters, tap water filters, refrigerator filters, water purification filters and so forth. PUR faucet filters provide decent drinking water filtration and help to eliminate fluoride in drinking water for an affordable price (around seventeen cents per gallon).However, PUR's pitcher filter is honestly not worth buying as it costs more per gallon and does a much poorer job of purifying tap water.

Positive points

-PUR water filters can be expensive, but the people at PUR make them affordable. Water from the faucet system will cost families only about seventeen cents a gallon and only twenty cents from the pitcher. -The PUR faucet water filter gets rid of most major contaminants that the health conscious citizen is trying to avoid: heavy industrial metals like lead, industrial by-products and solvents like arsenic, bacteria, micro-organisms and pathogens, and on top of that the water tastes good. -A PUR water filter replacement is pretty easy to get and unlike the makers of some other water filtration systems, the company usually provides a decent warranty. However, make sure that the warranty that you are getting is from the company and not from a third party seller. -PUR is a big brand with a consistent reputation and is not likely to go anywhere soon. This means that in case you happen to end up liking the brand, their products and warranties are likely to stick around.

Negative points

-Do not even bother with the pitcher. It is almost an insult to call it a PUR water filtration system. However, if you want dirty water that tastes like plastic, by all means get the filter. -There are certainly other filters made by other companies that do a better job. Plenty of them are just as affordable as PUR. For example, Aquasana is highly recommended as it filters water at the cost of an American dime a gallon. -PUR, as a large corporation, may not be all that receptive to customer feedback.
