Buying a PUR water filter replacement will depend on the type of water filtration system that the person has in the home. There are pitcher versions, faucet mounted versions and refrigerator versions of these filters that all last for different lengths of time and cost different amounts of money to replace. The PUR water filter replacement that is the most expensive to replace is the PUR refrigerator water filter, costing about thirty-five dollars to replace. However, it also lasts the longest out of all the types of PUR water filter replacements, lasting up to six months before needing to be replaced. The cost per month then is only about six dollars, which is very affordable in the long run and much less expensive than buying bottled water.
Benefits of Water Filtration
Tap water often has pollutants in it that can be harmful to a person’s body over a long period of time. The PUR water filter replacements will help the person to maintain fairly pure water so that the pollutants are less damaging to his body. There is often high chlorine content in tap water, which can easily be determined by the taste of the water.
There are also often heavy metals in the water which can be significantly harmful to a person’s body. Metals such as copper, cadmium and lead can do damage to the internal systems of the body and should be avoided whenever possible. The pitcher PUR water filter replacements are the best at eliminating these heavy metals from the water through the two stages of filtration that they use.
There are other pollutants that the PUR water filter replacements can help to eliminate. There is sometimes sediment in the water as well as microbial cysts that can be harmful. There is also agricultural pollution that can come into the water from the pesticides and fertilizers that are used in the area and are not filtered out well by the city’s filtration system.
There are industrial pollutants that can also get into the water, such as asbestos, which comes from the industrial plants that are in the area which also do not get filtered out by the city’s filtration system. Besides these, there are also some pharmaceutical pollutants that can get into the water, such as antibiotics, steroids and hormones as well as painkillers. These can also be dangerous and should be filtered out as much as possible in order to preserve the purity of the water.
