March 22nd is the annual “World Water Day” every year. Because drinking unsafe water, there are 4000 infant children leave this world every day. The families and relatives of the children had no choice but to give them safe drinking water, because they had no way to get safe water. The United Nations called the tragedy “the silent humanitarian crisis” and the ten years from 2005 to 2015 as a wake-up call for public awareness and action. Procter & Gamble is committed to making contributions in two areas: raising public awareness and providing solutions to save lives.
Cooperation with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and prevention, P&G to create a PUR water purification technology to deal with this crisis. PUR purification of the polluted water has changed the world tens of thousands of the poorest families by fate, P&G’s overall welfare theme – “life, learning and growth” has the “children’s safe drinking water project”, PUR was brought to the developing countries.
In the quickly and simple water purifier market, mainly by the two brand – Germany’s BRITA and the United States of America PUR. The former in pitcher filter, PUR in faucet and dispenser filter, recommended approval for professionals.
All the PUR purifier has gotten the NSF and WQA certification. Experience clean, crisp tasting water with the mineralclear® technology. The unique mineralclear® technology filters water over natural minerals for a crisp, refreshing taste. The premium carbon filter is certified to remove 99% of lead, mercury, chlorine (taste and odor) and many other contaminants. It also reduces trace levels of pharmaceuticals.
This is three stage filter, including:
The first step of outer – large particles of dirt, sediment filtration
The second step in the middle layer (activated carbon micro filtration membrane) – filtration of harmful microorganisms, chemical components (can remove 99.9% of the microorganisms including parasitic micro spore and a lot of harmful chemical composition). PUR activated carbon filters are made from coconut shells, which are ‘heat treated’ with steam. This produces pores within each grain of carbon, creating tiny tunnels and spaces, 1,000 square meters of surface area per gram of carbon.That’s approximately 200,000 square feet of nooks and crannies to absorb and trap the contaminants in your tap water in each PUR faucet filter.
The third step is the innermost layer — the clean water then passes through the natural mineral substance, finally flows out is – – is clear and sweet drinking water (reserves the body beneficial fluorine),this is MAXION technology.
Not all the faucet has the third stage, only advance or advanceplus model has it. MAXION Technology is PUR’s unique formulation approach for blending carbon and ion exchange materials for maximum contaminant reduction. Clean drinking water is the foundation of good health. PUR water filters with MAXION Technology turn your ordinary tap water into clean, fresh-tasting drinking water.
Easy to install and use:
General interface can connect to any international standard faucets (package included accessories for conversion connectors). After use, the filter will have an indicator to tell you when to change the core of the (green – the normal work, the yellow light should be changed, the red light should be changed immediately). Each filter can use 2-3 months to purify the water about 100 gallons.
When you do not need to use pure water can turn the knob to parallel position, then the outflow of water is generally the tap water, can be used to wash dishes or do other do not need pure water use.
Why PUR Filter?
Remove Contaminants – PUR water filters reduce many contaminants found in tap water, including trace levels of pharmaceuticals.
Health Benefits – The human body averages approximately 60% water and all of its systems depend on it to function properly.
Our Environment – As our demand on natural resources grows, so does our responsibility to make a difference. By switching from bottled water to PUR faucet filtered water, you’ll get 400 gallons of clean filtered water a year—which is like making thousands of plastic water bottles disappear.
Besides Faucet filter, PUR has another best product–Dispenser. This dispenser has the same Corresponding Filter with the PUR pitcher, but the design is amazing.
Many people said PUR pitcher and dispenser taste much better, maybe personal taste issue, just like this guy said:
“I was between this and the Brita 18 cup dispenser. I’ve used a Brita pitcher for 10 years and been happy with it. Couldn’t find any conclusive reviews saying why one’s better than the other. Since I had a year’s supply of Brita filters already, I went with the Brita. Brita leaked out of the box. Also, spout on the Brita is raised off the bottom! You can’t get all the water out, even if you tilt it! Now I can see how some people have found algae in the bottoms of their Britas. So, I returned it and got this Pur. After using both, I can say the build quality on the PUR is superior! More thoughtful and sturdy. PUR is much easier to clean inside, unlike the sharp corners inside the Brita. HUGE PUR PLUS, the pour spout puts out twice as much water as Brita! Pouring with the Brita spout was painfully slow! After using the PUR, my wife and I both love the PUR! Happily left behind our years supply of Brita filters (lost money!) for the better, PUR!”
