Cheaper than usual but not by much. That $30 is the MSRP, Amazon generally has it at $16. Still a good price.

Not really a deal, this is very close to the avg price. Black just looks super weird on a faucet. I've had a few of these in the past few years. Last one I got was late aug from amazon at 14.59 for a white model. These newer models are designed to pop on and off quickly which is nice when washing dishes and they all come with the metal adapter which you used to have to call in for. So far with the update and that adapter they have fixed the leaking issues that would pop up over extended use in the past. I have the chrome model and a plain white model. The chrome is almost double the price but it's all aesthetic as it functions all the same. It did come with a blue filter though. These lower end models only come with the white filter which doesn't have the mineral addition step. I like these filters as they are faster(water pressure powered), remove much more contaminants (3x filtering), last longer and are much cheaper per gallon, vs the pitcher type filter which is only gravity fed and has a much more rudimentary filtering element.

These systems are not a deal. They are cheap to get into, but the filters are absurdly expensive for how long they last.

You can buy this housing

https://www.amazon.com/Pentek-150...B0045LQSG0

and this filter (note, you are getting a 4-pack)

https://www.amazon.com/4-PACK-Mic...bon+filter

and have a much better setup that is much cheaper to operate.

Thanks, great write-up and helpful.
​Is this the latest chrome model of which you speak? https://www.amazon.com/PUR-3-Stage-Advanced-7-7-Inch-3-2-Inch/dp/B0009CEKY6/ref=lp_8150060011_1_12?s... [amazon.com] or is this the one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01I3D6...UTF8&psc=1
A video on one of the product pages shows a Basic, and Advanced, and an Advanced Plus, but the item pages don't correlate to these. Which PUR has the features you've described? thanks

I have the first chrome model you linked. The horizontal model I had years ago and it took up too much space. I also had the same question about the advanced etc models and if you take a look on the PUR site and if you read into it a bit it's all dependent on the filter you put in. So it's a marketing gimmick. The most basic white plastic filter does all the same filtering but lacks the final step of adding minerals back into the water that the blue colored filter does. Both types of filters are interchangeable in all of their filters it's really up to the consumer if they like or prefer the taste of a bit of minerals. They say 3 months but it really depends on your water quality. The indicator light on the front is timed for 3 months when you open and close it and does not have any reading from the filter. I usually disregard the light and just observe the flow of the filter. If the flow starts getting too slow for me I change one out.

Some cons: the metal attachment for the faucet connector doesn't have an aerator like a standard faucet tip does. So when you disconnect the filter which does have the aerator built in, the flow of water is wonky when doing dishes.

Costs, there is a site where costs were calculated by cents a gallon over the course of a year. Pur filters were pretty economical for the amount of filtering they provided and beat out all the pitcher type filters and other faucet types from other companies. It's just the initial costs and the higher perceived costs for a pack of filters. A previous poster included a link for an inline filter which are also very nice and economical but require a little more work to hook up. These when attached will filter all the water through your chosen tap. Pretty nice but a bit overkill if you only want to filter your drinking water only. When you filter all your water, even for washing, you will use up your filters. But inline filters are necessary if you have a custom or multi function faucet head.

Weight off the faucet: there is a bit of added weight on it, and for my older apartment kitchen faucet I think it contributed a bit to a very small leak at the base when the head flexed the faucet downward. I had to purchase a $7 faucet O-ring replacement kit and about 10min to change them out thanks to YouTube. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence or if the added weight contributed to the leak but after I switched the o-rings out the tiny leak has stopped. I have also stopped leaving the filter on all the time just in case. The faucet with same type filter at my parents house never had such problems so who knows.

Mine came with one metal, 3 plastic (for different faucets). The metal one did not fit my bathroom sink.

The inline filters that are in the other post are for drinking water aesthetics only.
The Pur have contaminate filtering properties also. (Albeit, with much less gallons filtered.)

I agree, the light on the Pur is marketing. I run them until a noticeably lessened water flow.

Yes the there is only one type for the metal connector. It fits a female threaded faucet. The plastic tips are ok as well, my parents use one of those in their faucet.

The inline stuff is less clutter in the sink area but you have to have pretty good water pressure for those. If not your water flow will go down a bit.
