PUR water filters are commonly found in many different stores and can be found in different styles to meet the needs of the family and the type of filtration that they want. There are some PUR water filters that are in pitchers and others that are faucet mounted. There are even some PUR water filters that are made to be in refrigerators so that the water that is dispensed is filtered.
The PUR water filter replacement cartridges are very economical in comparison to the high cost of buying bottled water. A PUR water filter cartridge usually costs between six to eight dollars and will last at least a month in most cases. This can be compared to the cost of a twenty-four water bottle case that will cost from four to six dollars and will last under a week in most cases.
Types of Filtration
The amount of filtration that is done by the PUR water filter depends on the type that is used. The pitcher units will usually do a better job of filtering out the chlorine and the chlorine by-products that cause the awful flavor in the tap water. They also usually do a better job of filtering out the heavy metals that can be found in the water, such as copper or lead. The faucet mounted PUR water filters will usually do a better job than the pitcher versions in filtering out the agricultural and industrial pollutants that can be found in tap water, such as endrin or asbestos. Both types of filters tend to do a great job in filtering out the pharmaceutical pollutants that can be found in the water supply such as antidepressants and steroids.
The refrigerator versions of the PUR water filters do not do as good of a job in filtering the water supply, but do filter out many of the heavy metals and the chlorines in the water supply. All of the PUR water filters are designed to leave the fluoride in the water which is good for the teeth. The refrigerator water filters are great because they have a longer life than the other versions, often lasting for six months without having to be replaced. The replacement on these filters is pricier, costing about thirty five dollars on the market today.
