Faucet Water Purifier
Perfect for Your Kitchen

A faucet water purifier is a purification system that is attached to an existing faucet.

The faucet mount water purifier provides clean and pure water instantly through the faucet.

Faucet purifiers eliminate bad taste and odor, as well as, all the bad contaminants from your water.

Let's now take a look at how a faucet purifier works.

How Does A Faucet Water Purifier Operate?

The main aim of a faucet water purifier is to filter your water of bad contaminants as the water flows through your faucet.

The water flows through a water purifier cartridge that removes a high percentage of contaminants that may harm your health.

Some faucet purifiers are even able to remove cysts, bacteria and water borne organisms.

A great feature of faucet purifiers is that they use a multi stage purification process. This process usually has three (3) to five (5) stages.

As the water passes through each stage, your water will become cleaner and cleaner.

The average lifespan of a faucet mounted water purifier is 6 to 12 months. There are systems that may have to be changed sooner or later than the average time.

The first sign that your purifier cartridge should to be replaced is when your water starts to taste like it did before you installed the filter; in other words, that pre-filtration taste.

Today, technology has advanced and some faucet purifiers have a visual notification. These notifications consist of three lights: green, yellow and red.

The red light indicates that your cartridge is poor and it needs to be changed. The yellow indicates that the cartridge may be running low and will need to change shortly. The green light indicates that the cartridge is very good and does not require a replacement anytime soon.

A Review Of The Best Faucet Water Purifiers

PUR Three Stage Vertical Faucet

Currently available in black, white or chrome, the PUR faucet filter will provide great tasting water from your tap water immediately.

Installation is pretty easy and only takes a few seconds.

PUR's 3 stage water purifier allows for the removal of many contaminants including lead, mercury, pesticides, herbicides, THMs and microbial cysts. Fluoride is retained which is good for health.

With a price tag of less than $30, the PUR 3 stage purifier is suitable for the family of four.

It must be noted that two major setbacks include the design and the filter cartridge.

The design and size of the filter system can sometimes make it difficult when you are refilling a large cooking pot or container.

As far as the replacement cartridge goes, it cost nearly half the price of the filter system.

There have also been some complaints about the durability of the product. A few people seem to experience a crack of the purifier system within a few months.

You can return the unit if this occurs as there is usually a 5 year warranty on the product.

Culligan Faucet Purifier

With a purifier cartridge lifespan of 200 gallons, the Culligan faucet purifier is one of the best on the market.

Retailing for less than $20, this purifier is worth twice its price. Designed with a 3 stage filtration process, the Culligan FM-15A reduces bad taste and odor, aesthetic chlorine taste and odor, sediment, lead, cysts such as giardia and cryptosporidium, turbidity, atrazine, lindane and nominal particulate class I.

The purifier will install in seconds and you can easily shift from filtered to unfiltered water.

Connection to your tap faucet is made easy as the Culligan purifier comes with several attachments to choose from.

After the purifier is attached, let your tap water run for about 5 minutes to flush the system.

The warranty lasts 5 years, so if you have any problems with the purifier system you can easily replace it or repair it.

The major drawback is the cost of the replacement cartridge. The cost of the cartridge plus shipping can cost nearly half the price. The best thing to do is to buy the replacement cartridges in bulks. It works out much cheaper that way.

Most consumers prefer this faucet purifier over Brita's or PUR's because of filter life, removal of contaminants, durability and cost.
