There's a lot to like about Pur's horizontal mount water filter. It clicks onto most standard faucets in minutes without tools (or plumbers). The mineral filter removes a number of nasties and makes tap water taste like fresh spring water. Fluoride, added to municipal water supplies because it prevents tooth decay in children, is not filtered out. The filtration unit swivels to provide extra work space and make it possible to fill large pots. With a flick of a switch, you can bypass the filter cartridge for dish washing.

So whats not to love?

In reviews, users complain that the unit just doesn't hold up very well to repeated use. The most common complaint was plastic fittings that developed leaks. Users gave high marks to the quality of the filtered water and the price $40 for the unit including one cartridge, $17 for replacement cartridges. Filter cartridges need to be changed every 100 gallons, about once a month.
