PUR Flavor Options Pitcher Review & Giveaway

13 October 2009

Do you drink as much water as you should. I can honestly say that my whole family tends to be pretty bad about getting our water intake. It doesn't help that the tap water around here lately smells like a swimming pool. It is so chlorine scented that you are almost afraid to bathe in it. I mean, what is in the water that requires that much chlorination to get rid of? Yuck! So, we've been buying bottled water, but the expense of doing that adds up quite quickly.

So, I was thrilled when I was given the opportunity to review the PUR Flavor Options Pitcher. I've wanted some sort of water filtration for ages and was eager to try it out. I was impressed after reading the PUR website and getting lots of good information about how the filter works, what contaminants it removes, and seeing that it was voted the Consumer Survey of Product Innovation 2009 Product of the year! They sure must be doing something right!

So, my pitcher arrived and we started using it immediately. My opinion on this product? I do not know how we lived without it! It makes our tap water drinkable, something I honestly doubted was possible. The whole family is drinking lots more water, thanks to the fact that the water is now not gross. Plus, the Flavor Options have really helped make water more appealing to the kids. Ashley really likes the raspberry flavor. I love that the product works well, is made well, and has a sleek design that fits into the fridge door. I also really like that you can choose flavored or unflavored water. I was afraid it would all taste flavored, but was pleasantly surprised to find that wasn't the case.The PUR Flavor Options Pitcher has already saved us money that we would have spent on bottled water and I feel that it is helping us live better, as I no longer worry about my family drinking enough water. We give this one two thumbs up and a standing ovation!

One thing I learned was that they have Flavor Options! I had no idea! Mel and I were just talking the other night about tap water vs. bottled water. I think he'd drink more water if we had a way to make it taste better!

I learned that using this pitcher is 1/10th the cost of bottled water.That along with the fact that by using this you also save the environment by not using the bottled water and dumping them into the trash where they end up in land fill is a major plus for me.

Barbara Bee said...

PUR claims to remove more contaminants than Brita. I have a Brita now, and would love to try PUR because it has a flavor option, but now that I found out it's also purer, that's a good reason to switch in itself.
