PUR One-Click Faucet Mount {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Jessica!}

When it comes to drinks around here, water is the number one choice. The kids do love a glass of milk with their meals, especially Little Sister B, but water tends to reign supreme the majority of the time.

But when it comes to drinking plain tap water, I don't even like to think about the stuff that might be in it. Contaminants, microbial cysts, lead, metals, chlorine... yuck, there's no way I'm knowingly letting my kids put that into their bodies.

So, as we gave up buying bottled water quite a while ago, our long-time solution has been a great water pitcher from PUR. It provides clean, fresh, great-tasting water that I can rest assured is helping (and not harming) my family. The only thing that could be more convenient would be to not always have to take our pitcher in and out of the fridge and remember to fill it up, but instead to just turn on the tap and have filtered water come straight out.

Which, now that I think about it, is pretty much the definition of what happens with the PUR Flavor Options Faucet Water Filter and the healthy (and tasty) convenience it provides.
All of my previous notions about mounting a water filter right on the faucet centered around having to have tools and knowledge about plumbing, so the idea of a One-Click product that could accomplish the same thing was enticing.

Right out of the box, I could tell that the small number of parts involved meant that the installation really was going to be easy...

...Until I walked over to my sink and looked at my pull-down faucet and knew I had a problem.

No worries, I recruited a good friend who, fittingly, admitted that she didn't drink enough water because she just doesn't like the taste... and has complained to her husband about the strong chlorine flavor that she isn't fond of. Handing over this PUR Flavor Options Faucet Water Filter, there wasn't much more to do than simply click it right on.

With literally just a squeeze, it wasn't hard to see why the name One-Click Faucet Mount works for these innovative filters. After unscrewing the cap and installing the filter, one snap later and this fits right onto the existing faucet and is ready to use.

The addition of the full 360° swivel feature makes it easy to have your PUR Water Filter in whichever location works best - whether in front for filling a glass or pushed out of the way for washing the dishes. Plus, with the easy installation and removal, if you really needed more space in your sink, one click is all it takes to have your filter taken off for as long as necessary.

Plus, if installation was simple, using the PUR Flavor Options Faucet Water Filter was just as easy - if not more. For regular tap water, turning on the faucet gives the same results as it normally would:

See that black horizontal switch on the far right of the PUR Filter? By flipping that vertically, voila! Filtered water at its finest.

The water pressure does decrease when the filter is turned on, which makes sense considering it has to take out contaminants, pollutants, metals, sediment, pharmaceuticals and more at a moment's notice. And how do you know it's working? By the handy built-in indicator that flashes green, yellow or red (it lights up just for a few seconds when you first direct water through the filter) and lets you know when it's time for a replacement.

Plus, for an added burst of flavor, with one press of a button you can add a tiny amount of raspberry, strawberry, grape or lemon fruit flavor right into your glass of water. The Flavor Options are easy to pop in and out and provide up to 75 servings that contain no sugar, calories or dyes - perfect for cutting down on soda and juice or just for a tasty addition to the crisp, clean water the filter provides.

There has never been an easier or more reliable way to get safe, PUR filtered water only when you want it. Through just one click, the PUR Flavor Options Faucet Water Filter provides up to 100 gallons of filtered water, meaning you'll have 2 - 3 month's worth of clean, tasty water the whole family can enjoy at the flip of a switch. It couldn't be more convenient!

And, thanks to the generosity of P & G, PUR's parent company, one person will soon be enjoying a tall glass of delicious filtered water, because...

One lucky person will win a PUR Flavor Options Faucet Water Filter!
