PUR Water Filter Review



Not too long ago we received out very first water filtration system! It is the PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filtration System. (I chose chrome to match my chrome faucet.)

Not only is it a water filtration system, but it is a natural water filtration system! The water is cleaned by the activated carbon microfilter. It is then filtered over natural minerals (not some chemical or who knows what) to improve the taste. So all you are left behind with is crisp, clear and refreshing water as the filter removes over 99% of many substances from you tap water.


We’ve never lived in a big city so I never felt like I needed a water filtration system, but I think that was definitely a misconception. My observant little three year old quickly noticed the new addition to the kitchen sink faucet, once we added this faucet filtration system, and she asked my husband and me what it was all about. We explained how it cleaned our water so it would be better for us to drink.

Well, a few days went on and I’m still adjusting to flipping the simple switch on the side (it conveniently switches from the filtered water to tap water so you aren’t wasting the filtered water on washing dishes and so forth), anyway I went to get her a drink and forgot to flip the switch and get the water out of the filtered side, and she says, “No Mom! I want that water, the clean one,” as she was pointing to the filtered water side. Of course, who wouldn’t take the cleaner water option =)?

I love that I can have naturally cleaned water as simple as this PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filtration System that snapped right onto my faucet in a cinch. Not to mention it’s affordability; you can pick one up yourself at a select local retailers for $19.99 – $39.99. Then when the time comes for a replacement filter you can purchase one for $12 – $19 which will last you on average 2-3 months (100 gallons). Go to PURwater.com to learn more.

We all know how important it is to drink water. How do you make sure you’re getting your recommended 64 fluid oz of water each day? Drinking clean water is also very important. How clean is the water you’re drinking?

  • Wendy: This faucet filter is so great. I have one, easy to install and it enables me to have clean water at my fingertips. Very convenient. January 20, 2015 at 7:03am Reply

  • Carl: I currently use a reverse osmosis system for my water purification needs, as I do not trust these water filters. I have done a lot of research, and at any one point in time, there could be hundreds of the 80,000 chemicals and toxins in your water, and reverse osmosis is the best available solution for removing everything from your water and providing pure water.

    • ankit: Hi, i want to say, reverse osmosis water isnt really a good choice in my knowledge.. it removes everything from water, including the useful minerals that human bodies have been adapted to growing with. Many of these minerals are needed just in traces, but they are really needed nevertheless, and artificially adding minerals (like dasani does) just doesnt cut it because you really dont add most minerals back. I think a high quality filtration followed by ion treatment (its really hard to know which ion exchangers are good or which companies use the better ones) and UV treatment is the best way to go.

      • William: One of the minerals Coca-Cola adds to Dasani water is Potassium Chloride.In Alabama,the 3rd drug administered in a lethal injection execution is Potassium Chloride.Potassium chloride stops the heart and causes death. May 8, 2017 at 10:28am Reply

  • Christi Lee: Hi there!

    I’ve been using a Pur water filter for a little over a year now, and I love it! It’s so much less wasteful than buying bottled water, and it tastes SO good! We’ve never been fans of the mineral water flavor, though, so my filter is the original white one (that doesn’t match the faucet). But we don’t mind since we get such clean-tasting water.

    We use the filter in two ways: one is to fill our reusable water bottles and leave them in the fridge overnight. That way we have clean and cold water to take with us for the day. The other is to fill a hermetically sealed glass pitcher to keep in the fridge for glasses of water while we’re home.

    Thanks for the post; I just love your blog!
