PUR Flavor options Pitcher Review and Giveaway!




I was sent a PUR Flavor Options water pitcher after contacting their PR team and telling them how much I hate water. Really. I do. I am addicted to Diet Coke and the number one ingredient just so happens to be water. I know it is bad. There are worse things that I could be doing to my body than drinking Diet Coke, right? The pitcher came quick with a bonus flavor! We were sent Grape and Raspberry. We filled the pitcher and waited for it to chill. (Now, I like ice in my water but Christian thinks the ice tastes bad and therefore makes our drinks taste bad....) We have been using in for 3 months now and here are our pros and cons.



Pros: I personally think the water tastes crisper, than our "other" pitcher. I love the ability to add flavor, I actually think it tastes similar to Kool Aid. I love that with a few clicks, the water is turned into something my kids will actually drink! There is a light on the lid that lets you know when it is time to change the filter. I like how it is push "to taste", so I like 3 pushes, and Christian likes 4.

Cons: You have to take the entire lid off to fill the pitcher with water. If you don't pour exactly right, some of the flavoring stays in the little pouch area, and the next time you go to pour "just" water, it will taste flavored, when you don't want it to.



Here is some information straight from PUR:

PUR: Removes More Contaminants

· Atrazine

o PUR is the only leading pitcher certified by NSF to claim reduction of atrazine, removing 94%.

o According to The New York Times, atrazine – which has been linked to birth defects and other health issues – may be dangerous at lower concentrations than what is currently allowed by the EPA.

· Pharmaceuticals

o PUR is the only leading pitcher to claim a reduction of pharmaceuticals in tap water – 94% for PUR pitchers and 99% for PUR faucet mounts.

· Microbial cysts

o Microbial cysts can cause intestinal illnesses such as diarreah and nausea.

o PUR is the only leading pitcher on the market that is certified to reduce microbial cysts by 99.9%.

· Heavy Metals

o The EPA estimates that approximately 20% of Americans’ lead exposure is attributable to tap water.

o PUR filters remove 98% of lead as well as other metals such as mercury and copper.

· Chlorine & Taste

o Some municipalities rely on “chlorine flushes” to treat their water supplies, e.g., Washington, D.C., affecting the taste of the water.

o PUR filters remove the taste and odor of chlorine from tap water. In addition, PUR faucet mounts have an exclusive third stage that filters water over a bed of minerals for a crisp, clean taste.

About PUR Water Filtration

  • Environment & Money: Switching from bottled water to filtered and a reusable bottle can eliminate up to 3,200 plastic bottles and save one person up to $600 annually.
  • Health: PUR filters are certified to reduce many contaminants, including 98% of lead, 99.9% of microbial cysts, 99% of pharmaceuticals and 94% of the weed killer atrazine.
  • Philanthropy: With each purchase of a PUR filter, a donation is made to Children’s Safe Drinking Water which has, to date, provided over 1.5 billion liters of clean water to needy children and their families around the world.

About PUR Flavor Options

o PUR Flavor Options is the first and only filter for tap water that lets you add a touch of sugar-free, calorie-free fruit flavoring to your water.

o PUR Flavor Options was named “Household Product of the Year” by Product of the Year USA in January 2009 and comes in raspberry, lemon, grape and strawberry.

I read on the site that it has a built-in indicator. That's awesome because I have enough to keep up without trying to remember when to put in a new filter!
