Although they put a lot of effort into purifying water, municipal water institutions rarely manage to deliver potable water to people’s homes. Despite the fact that water is reasonably pure after benefiting from the filtration process, on its way to people’s homes, it gathers rust and other dangerous contaminants, as most cities still use very old water pipes. Furthermore, even the elements used to purify water can leave behind toxic byproducts which are harmful to people’s health. What is the best way to protect yourself from the risks associated with impure water? Well, the answer to that question is of course water filter systems. However, even if we were to install faucet filters on all of our homes’ water sources, that does not mean that we would always benefit from pure water. How can we benefit from pure water when we are at work or on a trip? In those situations, the best products are water pitchers. Despite the fact that these filters are designed to be portable, they can also be used at home. They are very useful because they allow you to only filter your drinking water. The same can be said about water filter dispenser. These devices are a great way to save money. Since they are only used for drinking water, they will last a lot more than faucet water filters. Furthermore, they also allow you to cool your drinking water by storing the pitcher in the fridge or by mounting a water dispenser directly inside the fridge. Today, we will talk about PUR water pitchers & dispensers, which are not only just efficient but also very affordable.
11 Cup Water Filter Pitcher with Electronic Filter Change Light
The most interesting thing about this water pitcher is the electronic filter indicator light which lets you know when the filter needs to be changed. As you can imagine, pitchers and water dispensers can rarely match the efficiency of other types of water filters since they are very small, compact and portable. Since their efficiency isn’t top notch, the last thing you want is an overused filter which doesn’t do anything. This pitcher’s filter indicator flashes green when the filter is barely used, it flashes yellow when the filter’s lifespan is approaching its end and red when the filter needs to be changed. Usually, a filter cartridge delivers about 40 gallons of clean water before needing to be replaced.
