Brita water filters and PUR water filter systems are the most popular on the market today. Part of the popularity is due to the simplicity of the systems, since they are very user friendly and cost effective. Both types of brands have similar products on the market today, such as the pitcher filters, the faucet filters and the refrigerator filters. There are places on the web that do a comparison of these two giants in the water filtration industry, measuring the amounts of particles and other pollutants that are removed from the water to see which one is the best to use. They will also analyze the cost of the two brands in comparison with each other to see which one gives consumers more for their money. In either case, the cost is much less expensive and wasteful than buying the water bottles. Even if buying water bottles in a twenty-four bottle case, it still costs between four to six dollars on average and only lasts two people about a week at most.

Price and Quality PUR water filter systems

The PUR water filter systems give consumers a lot for their money. In comparison to water bottles, the cost of the pitcher based water filters is about nine dollars each. The filters will last about two months, which means instead of paying at least four-fifty per week for water bottles, the consumer pays that per month. The faucet PUR water filter systems are a little more expensive, costing about twenty dollars, but they also last for a long time, in this case three months. The cost per month for the faucet filters is about seven dollars, still significantly less than the water bottles, not to mention less waste in plastic.

The PUR water filter systems say on the packaging what they are guaranteed to clean from the water. The pitcher PUR water filter systems do the most comprehensive job of cleansing pollutants from the water, probably because they use a two stage filtration system compared to the one stage of the others. The pitcher PUR water filter systems cleanse the sediment from the water and heavy metals. They also help to clean the agricultural and industrial pollutants that can get into the water as well as the chlorine that causes that awful taste and odor in some tap water. They will also clean pharmaceutical pollutants that can get into the water, such as hormones or steroids, and can get rid of the microbial cysts such as Giardia.
