If you have a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Kitchen Aid, Maytag, Amana or Jenn-Air refrigerator with a water dispenser then this is the filter you’ve been looking for. The PUR Refrigerator Water Filter is much cheaper than the replacement filters that I’ve been buying at Sears and it even works better.
Not only does this water filter remove or reduce the lead, cysts, benzene and other usual contaminants that are found in tap water but it also removes up to 99% of the pharmaceutical compounds that are floating around in there too. If you didn’t know that you had to be worried about pharmaceutical compounds in your drinking water it’s probably because it’s a relatively new thing to worry about. In March 2008, the Associated Press published a report that found pharmaceutical compounds in the water supplies of over 24 major metro areas across the United States. It seems that the water treatment plants were never designed to remove pharmaceuticals from our water.
Before buying one of these Refrigerator Water Filters make sure that it’s the right one for your fridge. If you’re like me and you have one of those quarter turn filters mounted in the grill of your fridge you should be fine with this model from Pur. But check with your manufacturer if you’re not sure.
I’ll take my water without a side of drugs please and that means that I’m going to continue buying these Pur Refrigerator Water Filters.
