  • Doesn't require a lot of space to store. The PUR water pitcher actually saves space. It fits easily in your refrigerator and only requires the space of a drinks jug.
  • Will provide up to 40 gallons of pure filtered water. This is sufficient water for 1 to 2 months. The filter cartridge may last longer but it really depends on how much water you consume on a daily basis.
  • Lightweight. For those persons worried about weight, Pur water pitchers only weigh 3 pounds before adding water. Most persons would think that the PUR pitcher water would be heavier.Children and elderly persons will not have a problem carrying around the PUR pitcher.
  • Removes dangerous contaminants and leaves behind beneficial minerals like fluoride. It has an activated carbon filter that reduces sediment, chlorine, bad taste and odor.
  • Very affordable. You will find PUR water pitcher for less than $15 online. This works out much cheaper when compared to buying bottled water or any other filter on the market.

    It is extremely hard to find a water pitcher filter so cheap on the market. The price makes it a very good substitute for bottled water which would cost you 4 to 5 times more for the same quantity of water.

  • Replacement cartridges are very cheap. You can buy 2 replacement cartridges for $15 or 3 for $20. This is equivalent to $7 for each filter cartridge and for 40 gallons; it is the same as paying $0.175 per gallon.
  • The filtration process is very easy. No professional skills needed. Everyone in your home or business can operate the PUR pitcher.

    All you have to do is pour the water into the pitcher and the pitcher will immediately filter the water and store it in the bottom chamber.

  • PUR pitcher filters will give you about 7 to 8 cups of filtered water for every refill. This allows you to have water for an entire day without re filling the pitcher.

Cons

  • For a family size larger than two that drinks a lot of water, you may have to refill your PUR pitcher 3 to 4 times a day. It could be more if you use your PUR pitcher for drinks.
  • If you use your water for multiple purposes, it may be better if you got an under counter water filter.

    Some persons cook and clean with filtered water because the food taste better and you will use less detergent to clean. In these cases, a PUR pitcher would be too time consuming to do these extra chores. Furthermore, under sink water filters tend to remove more contaminants and the cartridges usually lasts longer.

  • Replacing the filter cartridge may seem cheap but when you add the monthly costs for replacing the cartridges, a counter top filter or an under counter filter may be cheaper.

    Most persons replace their cartridge every month and at $7 to $10 per cartridge, that would be roughly $120 a year. Most under counter replacement cartridge's price range from $19 to $48.

  • Removes a limited number of contaminants. Compared to a whole house, counter top or under counter filter, Pur water pitcher removes basic contaminants such as chlorine but neglects other contaminants such as lead, cysts and bacteria.

Summary

Overall, the PUR water pitcher is a convenient way of drinking clean filtered water.

The major drawback is continuously buying replacement cartridges but if you purchase them in packs of 3's or 6's, then you will have them at hand and at a cheaper price.

All in all, buying a PUR water pitcher is cheaper and more convenient than buying bottled water.
