PUR faucet water filter review...

My family and I drink ALOT of water! We used to buy four or five of those big packs of water bottles, like a 24 count, a month. We thought it was always such a good deal, and then of course the store brand packs were cheaper and then they would have deals like 36 bottles for 3 dollars and some change! It was great, I would also buy the little flavoring packets to go with the water bottlws, when i got sick of drinking water all the time. LOL
But then, the water bottles were everywhere, in the living room, in the kitchen piled up by the sink, in the bedrooms, I was totally done!

I ended up coming across, during one of my many trips to Walmart, the PUR water filter that attaches to your sink faucet! So basically, the filter attaches to any kitchen sink faucet, and filters out over 70 contaminants, including lead, mercury, and certain pesticides! The filter has a blinking light which helps to determine if the filter needs to be changed.

My husband and I figured out that we save so much money by not buying bottles of water all the time and also save the environment by reducing the amount of plastic we use!

Has anyone tried this filter system? Does anyone have one? What do you think of it if you do have one?

I know a few people that have had a faucet water filter and the feedback has been that it is great.

I am so fortunate to live in an area of South Africa where we can still drink water straight from the tap. I forget how fortunate we are and how convenient it is to have "water on tap" like that.

I would recommend you get one, it really is nice to be able to drink water straight from the tap and of course you will also save to much money in the long term and save on all the plastic.

On our fridge there is a water filtration system. The filters cost anywhere from $30, to at least $200 depending on the type you buy, and if the filter itself is compatible with the fridge you have. Even though we have this filtration system attach to our fridge, I still buy water bottles. Currently, the price here for a 32 pack of water is about $3.49. We buy one case of water which lasts almost 2 weeks. This water is mostly used for taking to the gym, or exercising.

We also recycle these water bottles to keep the carbon footprint as low as possible.

Yes i love our Pur water filter and im so glad that you did a review on it. At first i was a little skeptical because one filter is over 20 bucks. We use to buy 4 cases or more of water a month that is almost 100 bottles of water. These filters last up to 2 months for us and its well worth the investment. The best part about this filter is that it will fit on almost any faucet. When we moved i was worried we would not be able to use it but you got it to work which is really nice. I cant wait to get a fridge that does this and dispenses ice whooo. Wouldn't that be nice? I agree with Lynne we have to count our blessings cause some people do not even have running water. This was most certainly a awesome topic. People from all over the world can use these and benefit from saving the planet.

i do too, it has saved us from the ridiculous mountains of plastic water bottles all over the house. LOL

if you get a pack of 2 filters, they almost always come with a $2 off coupon, which i always save for our next purchase of filters.

i would like to look into how much the new one they have out is, because its actually like an all in one type thing. you put water in it and it filters it and then has a spout where you can get your water from, all in the same contraption! (kinda like the old style pitchers) it would save me an extra step if we got this! haha

Living in South America means you can't have "water on tap". Warm weather and bad dispose of garbage, make water a deposit of zillions of bacteria and parasites. That means usually every house needs to have a water filter. Don't know the way that PUR water filter works, but usually the ones we have here only filter dust, mud, and particles. If we want to kill all the micro things we need to have Ozone or something alike. In the end, we always have to boil the water we drink, it is the only safe way to guarantee is free from diseases.

Very practical, unfortunately, we do not have such a filter and we must buy water almost everyday, you can imagine how much water we must buy if we are 5 people in the house.

My family used to buy tones of bottled water, before all these plastic bottles drove my mom crazy. She is a die-hard environmentalist who wants to save the planet from pollution. Firstly, she bought for us metallic cups. Then the next her acquisitions where Water Filter Pitchers and a faucet filter. She forbid plastic bottles in the house or in the car. Also, she told us that in case she will see one of us buying a plastic bottle she will never give us pocket money never ever again. At first, it was really tough to get rid of the habit to buy bottled water every day. However, in half of year we used only water from faucet or pitcher. I believe all faucets and pitchers are good if you decide to make a change in your life.

I do understand you, we also drink a lot of water, but after we have counted how many plastic bottles we throw away every week, we were completely shocked. I are trying to be eco friendly and we could continue using such a lot of bottles. We have found solution in water softener. We have installed it in basement. If you are interested, we have chosen one model from water filtration systems San Diego. They provide us long guarantee and very quality service. Think that for this price it is amazing offer.
