Get PUR® and Know Your Water
We have lived in several places where the quality of water has concerned me a bit. For years, we bought bottled water and wouldn't drink the water. Then we moved to a different part of Atlanta where the drinking water was much better. However, I still needed a filter for our water because I knew that there were still things that I wanted removed.
Did you know that when water leaves your city’s treatment facility it has the opportunity to pick up contaminants along its path to your kitchen faucet? This is the kind of thing that worried me. I knew that we needed a PUR® Advanced Faucet Filter so that I can give my family and myself the cleanest water possible. Not only did we get the faucet filter but we also have the PUR Ultimate 11-Cup Pitcher with LED that sits in our refrigerator at all times because my kids love cold water as much as I do.
Visit KnowYourWater.com to learn about the water you are drinking
KnowYourWater.com is a unique website comprised of easy and digestible information gathered from public water quality data received from the EPA. The purpose of KYW.com is to help educate people on the journey of water from source to treatment to tap. The site also easily allows users to learn what’s in their water because everything is in one place.
I just learned that the water I drink everyday travels 147 miles to get to my faucet. Our water is also comprised of ground water and surface water. On its way, it can pick up things that are in the pipes transporting the water and so I learned about things that could be in our water. Here are some things that can be in your everyday drinking water:
- Heavy Metals
- Disinfectants & By-products
- Industrial Pollutants
- Pesticides & Herbicides
Visit KnowYourWater.com to find out:
- your closest local water source
- where your water source is located and how many miles from your address
- levels of lead in your water
- the municipalities who have reported lead and copper levels (by law) to the EPA.
- if any unregulated amounts of other contaminants are in your water (if shared).
- specific treatments performed to your water prior to leaving the plant
- types of processes your water goes through to ensure it’s clean enough to drink
After learning more about what is in our water, this just reaffirmed my decision to use a PUR® Advanced Faucet Filter. The filter has just always been a part of our family. Our kids know that is how to get their drinking water: right from the filter or the pitcher in our fridge. The filter fits perfectly into our kitchen design (early 70's chic) and is incredibly easy to install/use.
- chlorine (taste & odor)
- microbial cysts
- certain industrial pollutants
- certain pharmaceutical compounds
- over 70 contaminants including 99% of lead, 96% of mercury and 92% of certain pesticides
I love that PUR has dedicated themselves now more than ever to giving consumers options when it comes to your drinking water. They want to ensure that we are drinking safer, cleaner water from our taps and their new faucet filtration system line has three different systems:
- PUR Ultimate
- PUR Advanced
- PUR Basic (comes in five different models)
We love the sleek likes of our PUR Advanced Faucet Water Filter that saves space and stands up to tough kitchen us. The filter features PUR MineralClear® filters, which filter water over natural minerals for a crisp, refreshing taste. There is also a CleanSensor™ Monitor indicates filter status and helps guarantee you will have safer and healthier filtered drinking water.
These new PUR faucet filtration systems can be found at local, major retailers like Wal-Mart and Target. You can also purchase online at Amazon and PUR.com. Available in chrome, stainless steel; MSRP $34.99-$44.99.
