PUR CR-6000C  2-stage oval water filter pitcher with LED Indicator

Product description

  • 2 stage filtration process
  • Has a built in LED light to indicate when you need to change the filter
  • Reduces lead.
  • Reduces 99.9% of microbiological cysts.
  • Does not remove fluoride from the water.

Summary of customer reviews :

  • Sleek body. Takes less space.
  • Needs both hands to hold up the body when pouring water; over prolonged use,  the handle may crack away from the body due to the weight of water on the plastic body.
  • Fits easily in a refrigerator.  Has a seal when closed that prevents refrigerator odors from getting into the water.
  • Less seepage of filter material into the drinking water because of the 2 stage filtering process
  • No covering on the pour spout,  leaves the water exposed to dust, as well as odors.
  • Difficult to open the lid in order to add water
  • Difficult to substantiate manufacturer’s claim on the number of contaminants reduced unless you have some measuring gadget to measure water quality.  Have to take the claims as is.
  • Don’t depend too much on the LED indicator to change your filter.  You can save money if you get the unit  without LED indicator,  and use other methods (visual, taste, sticker label) as indication of when to replace the filter.

Overall comments

  • Good product if you don’t’ have space for larger dispenser.
  • Good quality of water. Tastes delicious, refreshing and ‘cleaner’
  • Convenient for a quick glass of filtered water, or to add to the coffee pot.
  • If you have a bigger family, it may be a good idea to store the filtered water in a separate jug after the filtration process is complete, and refill the pitcher filter frequently so that you can get lots of filtered water without having to wait long
  • Reasonable pricing
