Installing & Using a Water Filter
I love water.
I'm one of those people that drinks tons and tons of water. I'm not a soda or a coffee drinker. I drink one glass of sweet tea a day and occasionally juice or hot chocolate but for the most part I like water.
That said, I do not like the taste of tap water! Buying bottled water is not only costly, but this Californian hates using all those little plastic bottles. The solution? The PUR Advanced Water Filtration System. PUR was kind enough to send me one to try out. Attaching my faucet filtration system was SO easy. I had Chris do it for me so that I could take pictures and it literally took him less than a minute to install. I should have done it and had him take the pictures! Ha!
The most obvious benefit to using the PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filtration System is the taste. Like I mentioned, I am just not a fan of the tap water taste. By running the water through the filter, and over the natural minerals inside, you completely eliminate that yucky tap taste!
Another great benefit includes eliminating 99% of lead and trace pharmaceuticals. Mercury and lead can be found in tap water, and they are reduced when run through the faucet filtration system. However, the filter doesn't remove fluoride (which helps prevent tooth decay), and it is approved by the American Dental Association!
There is also a built in electronic light that illuminated to let you know when it's time to change out the filter. I was also impressed with the high quality finishes - you can definitely tell that it's durable! And did I mention installation was a breeze?
Another great thing about the PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filtration System is the impact you'll have on the environment. By using the faucet filtration system, you'll get 400 gallons of filtered water a year; think of how many plastic bottles you won't be buying and wasting! In fact, you can save up to $1,000 a year by switching to a PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filtration System from bottled water!
I encourage you to check out the PUR website and read about all of the other awesome benefits of using their water filtration systems. I highly recommend their products!
What are some of the things you would do with the money you save by using a PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filtration System? Leave me a comment to let me know!
