PUR Water Pitcher and Faucet Mount Filter Product Reviews

The featured product was provided free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% the opinion of the Coupon Savvy Sarah family.”

We drink a lot of water in our house by choice, plus it fits in with our healthier lifestyle choices that we have adapted over the years. Even from when Rose was little on up, I would always mix her juice with half water to dilute the sugar content and get her drinking water. I see a lot of children these days (and adults as well) that refuse to drink water and drink soda instead. 

From PUR's website - "Drinking water facilities in the U.S. are in great need of improvement. While tap water might look and smell clean, it may contain contaminants that can be potentially harmful to your health. Research supported by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate there are up to 16 million waterborne illnesses per year associated with drinking water. By-products from chlorine, along with lead, heavy metals, and microbial cysts can sometimes be found in municipal tap water. Choosing to make the simple decision to use an at-home water filtration system can improve the quality of your drinking water."

I truly agree with this! We live in an area in Michigan that lately has fallen under some national headlines with issues to our water quality and chemicals in it. My husband and I had been using bottled water due to this issue so you can imagine how excited I was to try out a couple of PUR's water filtration products to see how well they worked with filtering our water for a better taste and quality.  

PUR is a well-known water filtration brand with products ranging from pitchers, dispensers and faucet mount filtration systems. We received the PUR Ultimate 11 Cup Pitcher with LED and PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filter to try out in our house and we have been using them for a little over four weeks now. 

Here is a little more information about the products we received to test out:

PUR Ultimate 11 Cup Pitcher with LED

Built in LED light indicates when you need to change the filter. Our unique, premium carbon water filter removes 95% of mercury. It also reduces chlorine (taste and odor) and 96% of trace levels of pharmaceuticals, giving you clean, great-tasting water. Yet it still leaves behind beneficial fluoride.
MAXION filter technology is PUR’s unique formulation approach for blending carbon and ion exchange materials for maximum contaminant reduction.  Clean drinking water is the foundation for good health.  PUR pitchers with MAXION technology turn your ordinary tap water into clean, fresh-tasting drinking water.
The PUR Ultimate 11-Cup Water Pitcher also offers these great benefits:
  • Keep track of your filter life with a built-in Electronic Filter Life Indicator. The indicator flashes green, yellow or red so you'll always know when it's time for a replacement filter
  • Water Pitcher holds eleven 8 oz glasses of water
  • Comfort-grip handle
  • Easy-fill lid is thumb activated for simplicity
  • Pour spout cover prevents odors and particulates from getting into your clean water
  • Space-saving design fits easily in a refrigerator. Slim enough to fit easily in most refrigerator doors
  • Water Pitcher filter provides up to 40 gallons of clean water
  • BPA free
  • All PUR pitchers and filters are recyclable

PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filter

With the PUR MineralClear Vertical Faucet Water Filter, you'll get up to 100 gallons of clean, filtered water. That's 2-3 months of crystal clean water right from your faucet. With 1-click installation, superior contaminant removal, and a two-year warranty, there's never been an easier or more reliable way to get PUR water. 

The PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filter also offers these great benefits:

  • MineralClear filters water over natural minerals for a crisp, refreshing taste
  • Filter removes 99% of lead and 96% of mercury, along with many other contaminants
  • Built-in electronic filter life indicator tells you when the filter needs to be changed
  • Easy 1-click installation makes it easy to remove and replace when you need extra room in the sink
  • 360-degree swivel allows it to fit well in most sinks
  • High-quality construction: new finishes and materials stand up to tough kitchen use
  • Each filter provides up to 100 gallons of clean water
  • Compatible with standard faucets.  Will not work with pull-out or hand-held faucets

Our Thoughts:
I love the size of the PUR Ultimate 11 Cup Water Pitcher - it fits really well in our fridge without taking up any unnecessary space. It is easy to refill with water and I find the LED filter display light comforting so I know in advance when it is time to change the filter. The water does taste much better using the pitcher - it has removed the chlorine taste and smell to our water and has almost eliminated our need for buying bottled water (we still grab bottled water for on the go when we are in a hurry). Even the color of our water is better from the brownish hue it has at times when the chemical levels seem to be at their highest. I also really like that there is a spare filter included in the pitcher's box so I know what the replacement filter will look like and I don't have to scramble out to the store for a new one right away. We used the Pitcher for about two weeks before installing the faucet mount on our sink to give us a good indication how the pitcher was working.

The PUR Faucet Mount was easy to install on our kitchen sink faucet. There were 4 clearly-labeled adapters and washers that should fit most sinks. Ours fit with the first adapter so we were up and running in no time. We don't have a build-in dishwasher; we have one that stands alone that we hook it to our sink faucet, so we did have to unhook the PUR faucet mount each time to do dishes. Thankfully it unhooks and reattaches with ease so we are able to have clean water all the time. I could taste the difference in water with the faucet mount attached as well - I didn't realize how much the chlorine smell and taste were affecting our water until it was removed because we became so used to smelling it. I am really happy to have found PUR products that give us a higher quality water for our consumption. Now I just need to buy us some nice travel water bottles so we can fill them with our PUR-filtered water and ditch bottled water altogether!

PUR Products can be purchased directly from their website with Free Shipping on orders $50 of more. You can also purchase them at most major retailers nationwide in addition to the online retailer Amazon.
