Pur Faucet is a water filter that you'll be able to attach to virtually any kitchen faucet in your home. It's been designed to filter contaminants such as lead, mercury, and chlorine from your water system more effectively than pitcher filters can. In fact, the National Sanitation Foundation and the Water Quality Association have deemed it able to remove 99 percent of the lead in drinking water, along with 10 times more other contaminants than pitcher filters.
The cost of Pur Faucet is $49.99 plus $4.99 shipping, for a total price of $54.98.
To get started with your Pur Faucet water filter, insert the included filter into the canister. In order to do so, you'll need to take the cap off the canister and place the filter inside, with the pointier end facing down. Once you've inserted it, the small square on the top of the filter should be sitting opposite your device's spout, instead of being right next to it. If not, you'll need to rotate the filter while it's still inside the device's canister.
Before you move on to the next step, put the cover that you've taken off your device's canister back on.
Next, before you'll be able to attach your device to your faucet, you'll need to remove that faucet's aerator. If you see any washers, you should also remove those, too. A jar opener made of rubber may help you remove these things if you're having difficulty doing it with your hands alone.
After you've removed your faucet's aerator and any washers, try to twist the device onto your faucet's spout (the part that should be twisted on is the part that has a black ring attached). If you're unable to twist it on, you may need one of the three included adapters. For a faucet with external threading, try the first adapter, and for one with internal threading, try the second or third. If none of these adapters enable you to attach the filtration device to your faucet, you can contact the manufacturing company for additional adapters.
If you're able to attach your filtration device to your faucet successfully, with the PUR logo facing in the same direction as you, flick the black lever down and turn your faucet on. This will enable you to use your water as you normally do, once you've run it at a cold temperature for five minutes. You should notice a green indicator light flashing six times on the front of your device as you use it for the first time.
Pitcher filters use the pull of gravity to make water pass through a filter with fairly small pores, and as the water does so, some contaminants are removed. However, each Pur Faucet device uses a more advanced filtration system than this. When you use this system by turning on your faucet, a certain level of pressure pushes water through the device's multilayered filter that's made of activated carbon. This filter can pick up more contaminants (and smaller ones) than a pitcher filter, due to its design. Therefore, when you use one of these systems, your water will likely end up even cleaner than any water that has gone through a high-quality pitcher filter would be.
The filter within each of these devices has a mineral-infused core, which will give the water that comes out of any connected faucet a nice, refreshing flavor. Plus, if you drink this water, you may end up with more health-enhancing minerals in your body than you'd have otherwise.
Every filter that goes in your Pur Faucet will be able to accommodate about 100 gallons of water passing through it. That means that for a typical household, you may not need to replace your filter for three months—or perhaps a bit longer if your water usage is fairly low. When you do require a replacement filter, you'll need to contact your device's manufacturing company to obtain one.
The light-up sensor on the front of your device will actually tell you when your filter's nearing the time at which it'll need a replacement. As you use your filter by turning on your tap, either green, yellow or red lights will flash. Green lights mean that the filter's healthy, while yellow lights indicate that you'll have to replace your filter in the near future. Red lights signal to users that the filter is no longer working effectively and must be replaced as soon as possible.
If you enjoy tracking the performance of your household appliances on your smartphone, you'll be happy to find out that there's a Bluetooth app associated with the Pur Faucet. This application is compatible with both Apple or Android devices and will enable you to track your water usage and access coupons. Like the light-up sensor on the front of your device, the app will also tell you what stage of life your filter is at. It must be noted that you need to be standing near your filtration device in order to access all of this data.
If you and the other members of your household (including your pets) commonly ingest water that's laced with contaminants like pharmaceuticals and other chemicals, you may not be in optimum health. Even if you didn't feel like you were sick before, you may notice that you feel better once you start drinking nearly contaminant-free water from your Pur Faucet filtration attachment. By doing so on a regular basis, you may even extend your life and the lives of the people and animals who happen to live with you.
This filtration device will attach to almost any available faucet in the world. Consequently, if you get a new faucet or move to an entirely different home, you'll likely be able to keep on using your device in the same way you previously did. If you need to obtain any additional adapters from the manufacturing company in order to attach your device to a different faucet, only a shipping fee is associated with these.
If the sensor lights don't turn on when you start using your Pur Faucet, open up its canister again and remove the filter. Press the small button that you'll find inside the canister and hold it down for a few seconds until the lights start to blink. Following that, put the filter back in the canister, and if the lights don't begin to work properly afterward, contact the manufacturing company for help.
People living in areas in which the tap water isn't necessarily clean may visit the grocery store several times a week for packages of bottled water. Once you start using your Pur Faucet, though, you won't even need to consider this, as the device will literally clean your home's natural water supply.
