Pur 18 Cup Water Filter Pitcher Review

Pur 18 Cup Water filter pitcher review

If you do not want to spend a fortune on a water filter, then this one is perfect for you.  The Pur 18 cup dispenser can filter up to 40 gallons of water – nearly enough for a small family. The filter will last quite long, and the indicator located at the top will indicate when to change the filter.


Talking about the design, the design team of PUR has done an amazing work. This water dispenser is very slender. You can easily place in the kitchen, and it won’t take up a lot of space. It takes up even lesser space than two bottles of water.

This dispenser has a nozzle on the front, and it makes the water dispensing pretty much a child’s play. You do not need to lift the pitcher from the fridge top to pour water. It comes with easy to use handles, thus filling water is very easy.

It can hold up to 1.125 gallon- about 18 cups. Thus it’s very suitable for larger households Or any place for that matter, where filtered water not only used for drinking but also for cooking.


The way this water dispenser works is pretty much same as the others. However, the game-changing factor is the level of pollutant this fellow can deal with. The PUR 18 Cup dispenser has a two stage filtration system and can remove up to 96% of the contaminants. This filtration capacity is way higher than its peers.

The carbon filter of this dispenser can filter up to 95% mercury, 96% of pharma traces and decrease chlorine content. The filter can remove up to 13 contaminants. However it still carefully preserves the health-friendly fluorides. Thus the water quality remains awesome.

It can also remove the chemicals that make the water coming out from the nozzle, taste, and smell foul. As a matter of fact, you can feel the difference as the water gets filtered in the tray. The result? Great tasting water and completely odorless.

The PUR vs Brita competition gets tougher here. The PUR folks claim that the PUR dispenser removes 21 contaminants while the Brita removes six contaminants. The filtration capacity apparently is double.

As per the PUR team, the filter is one of its kind which is proven to remove microbial cysts. These are dormant forms of pathogens like giardia and cryptosporidium.

The PUR folks claim that dispenser is made from an acrylic polymer and it is BPA free. The filters should soak for 15 minutes before you use them. The coconut based activated carbon will absorb any contaminants. The filters also contain ion exchange granules.
