    I have had one of these on various kitchen faucets for 7 years before it started leaking at the faucet connection. I tried replacing the gasket but that didn't work to stop the leak. But I figure 7 years is a pretty good run, so I bought a new one just like it. I use it whenever I'm going to drink the water, like making coffee etc. The replaceable filter cartridge is easy to change, and usually lasts about one year. I know it's working because when I replace the cartridge, it weighs 10 times what it weighed when it was new. That means it has collected a lot of stuff out of the water. There is an easy to read indicator showing when to replace the cartridge.
    The only negative is that the unit gets in the way a little bit when using the faucet for rinsing dishes and that sort of thing. But it's well worth putting up with the small amount of interference to get good clean drinking water.

    This is my second PUR. My first PUR lasted about a year, then one day cracked when I tried placing a new filter inside. The mechanism inside this second PUR (just bought this second one about 2 months ago) is already "stripped." That 1-click feature is not working, after only 2 months of using. When I try to 1-click filter unit in place on faucet spout the entire filter just clicks completely out/off faucet spout.. The 2 white buttons controlling the 1-click feature easily "strip/break". I will try to get a refund from company. Will not buy this product again.

    Comments about PUR Basic Faucet Water Filter, White, 1 ea:

    I had no problems for a year and then the rubber fittings that fit on faucet seemed to be stripped or something; dripping and then explosion and filter mount flies off faucet and I spend next hour cleaning up kitchen. If I hold the filter on, I can fill plastic jugs but can't leave it mounted on faucet all the time. This affects the function of the filter and has caused little light to stop working as well. Filters don't work as well when they dry out between uses or worse: don't dry out when sitting on my counter. I end up filling plastic bottles anyway which is what I wanted to avoid to begin with. I would not buy another one of these but am stuck with a whole lot of filters to use up before I can see my way clear to trying other system. I will say this: before it started to leak and explode off faucet, I had good water and no complaints. Should last longer than it did. Rubber fittings might be the culprit. They don't seem to be designed for the average faucet and the whole design is destined to pull heavier on one side. It puts too much weight on one side and makes sense that it would pull away and leak. Either sitting up or lying down on side, it comes out the same. Thing is out of balance; too much stress on fittings.

    Comments about PUR Basic Faucet Water Filter, White, 1 ea:

    This water filtration system is supposed to last 2-3 months until you have to replace the filter. I used it less than 1 month before the water went from a slower flow to an almost nonexistent trickle. The flow is slow to begin with, now after a month, I have to buy a new filter. Their filters are expensive, about $15-$18. I would have to pay it monthly if I decided to continue with this filtration system. I called Pur, but you just get messages about how your water is really contaminated and you can upgrade to a new product of theirs. Forget it. I'm throwing their product away and never buying a Pur product again. Don't get this product. It's not worth it.

      I put this on my laundry room sink for quick-filling pitchers. We have a filter on the refrigerator, but it's sloooow, and a filter wouldn't fit on our kitchen sink faucet. This was super-easy to install, is very convenient to use, and does exactly what I wanted it to do.

        Great product and a great price. We have saved money on buying bottled water not to mention the benefit on the environment. I also purchased an aluminum water bottle (Gaiam) from drugstore.com and love it. It keeps the water cool and tastes fresh all day.

          Comments about PUR Basic Faucet Water Filter, White, 1 ea:

          I switched to this water filter b/c the Brita was a frustratingly slow trickle. It took half an hour to fill a large pitcher. This Pur filter gets way better water pressure and the water tastes great. We had to go without one for a month or so and we really noticed the difference in our water.

          The only problem is that it is hard to get a perfect seal on the nozzle. It can force water downward and out through the bottom of the water nozzle.
