Water Quality better than Hardware QualitySep 04, 2008
By M. Bailey
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R3JLXQJN3W88V9 Video of the PUR 3-stage Faucet Mount Filter. Good water, bad hardware. We've owned 4 Faucet Mount filters. All of them leaked uncontrollably after 4-5 weeks. The filter outlasts the faucet mount in most cases.

Works fine for meNov 23, 2005
By Daniel Lloyd
I purchased this filter about a year ago, and it works just fine.
- Saves money over buying bottled water
- Convenient: don't have to lug bottled water into the house, and don't have to throw out the empty containers
- Decent looking: nice shiny chrome finish
- Filters last for many months, and are easy to replace (just buy online).
- Filtered water pours out more slowly than unfiltered water. There is a switch to select filtered or unfiltered water. Unfiltered water will pour out as normal, but filtered water will pour out more slowly. To be exact, I just checked mine, and it pours at a rate of 1 fluid oz./sec. This will feel really slow at first, but since you probably do a lot of multitasking in the kitchen, you quickly get used to filling a container with water while you do something else for a few seconds.
- You are attaching a big thing on the end of your faucet: this reduces the clearance between your faucet and the bottom of the sink and may obstruct other sink activities that you currently take for granted. For me, this made it more difficult to clean or fill with water a tall pot that I like to use.
Hope this helps

No stars.....horrible productApr 17, 2007
By J. Cossio
I have owned PUR faucets for over two years now and the story with all of them is the same: the collar that connects to the faucet broke on each of the 4 mounts I owned including this same model. At first I figured it may simply be a defective model but now I am convinced PUR makes substandard products. I love the filtered water that come out of it, I just hate the fact that they break so easily. Here's my tip to PUR: PAY YOUR MECHANICAL ENGINEERS BETTER. Now I am left with a few expensive 3 stage filters and I have no choice but to buy another one of these crappy things. Fool me once shame on PUR, fool me 5 times...I must be an idiot.

Product great AFTER calling Proctor & Gamble to ask for metal aerator replacementMay 29, 2012
By Martin Alberto Chamorro
UPDATE (12/6/2014): It's been nearly 3 years now since I purchased this filter and it's still going strong! No leaks and the filter stays on the faucet securely at all times. Ever since I called P&G to ask them for a metal aerator replacement as I describe in the original review below, I've had zero issues. Product was awful at first with the original aerator included, but excellent with the metal one.
This product is great but not out of the box. The negative reviews for this product are fair but it's only because the aerator provided in the box breaks pretty quickly. I've used many other water filtration systems in my kitchen and bathroom and they have always come with a metal aerator but for whatever reason Proctor & Gamble decided to use a plastic aerator with this product. I suppose it was to save money but it's really quite a poor decision on their part because it makes customers think the entire product is defective when really it's just the aerator that's a problem. It's not even the entire aerator that's the problem, rather it's just the top part of the aerator that connects to the faucet with plastic inner threading that's the problem. The bottom part of the aerator that connects to the filter itself is just fine and works well (it's actually this bottom part that makes the installation such a breeze since it just snaps on to the filter). Anyway, the plastic aerator that came with the product worked for about a month but then two things started happening. 1) It started leaking and 2) the entire filter would just disconnect all of a sudden. It seemed as though the plastic threading on the inner walls of the aerator simply began failing to grip the faucet well. So, as soon as I would turn on the water, the little bit of pressure that created would be too much for the filter and it would just drop to the sink.
Well, because the product was still under warranty I called Proctor & Gamble and explained the problem. They immediately sent me a replacement for the aerator. The replacement they sent me was perfect; it should be the aerator that actually comes with the product. It has a metal top part and a plastic bottom part. The metal top part eliminates the problem of the threading becoming loose. As soon as I put the new aerator on, the leaking stopped entirely and the filter stayed securely in place at all times. The bottom part of the aerator remains plastic, allowing for easy snap-on installation or removal of the filter. It's really the perfect aerator and I bet the vast majority of the negative reviews would go away if only P&G would supply this aerator with their product rather than the cheap one that comes in the box.

Good FilterSep 06, 2007
This is a really good water filter but reading many of the comments I have some opinions to them.
Alright this is a no brainer, the attachment to your faucet, if your hand tightening when you install it, its going to get loose. turning the whole filter while its on the faucet left or right loosens it.
Solution: attach it with a wrench, or if your using the extension for the inner faucet tighten that area too. also wrap plumbers tape on threads that are on your fixture. it should solve the problem. also don't over tighten.
People say that its expensive, they are priced well all around stores, I got one for 15 at target, and they sell one at costco with 2 filters for less than the price of a single unit online with only 1 filter. also a brita single stage filter with container is around 25 dollars and takes up a lot of space in the fridge. you can just get nalgene bottles and bottle it in your fridge from the tap.
Compared to other filters, the 3 stage is the best price vs. cleaning quality. there are other units that are pricier like 5 stage or reverse osmosis, but at that end of the scale it is unnoticeable in difference esp. if you live in the USA.
filters are supposed to last any where from from 2-3 months. if your water is dirty (it might come from the pipes) it will obviously wear out sooner. so what if you have to change it every month or 2, is your health worth it? over all its still cheaper than bottled water and much less of an impact on the environment using it. (plastic waste and cost of transportation and packaging)
If your water speed is really slow or barley a trickle its time to change the filter. the filtering process does take some time but it shouldn't be that slow.
it does add on some bulk onto your faucet and may block sink activities, cant really do much about that unless you have a faucet that moves.
you shouldn't run hot water though it, it destroys the filter. try to avoid that.
