    PUR water pitcher filter

    We purchased a new PUR pitcher with filters. This one keeps track of the filter life with a sensor built into the lid.



    The sensor seems to keep track of the life of the filter by recording how often the butcher pours?
    But ... That means a 4 oz pour is equal to a full pitcher pour? NOT.

    Also I didn't see, in the instructions, any mention of how the life of the sensor and that of the picher correspond nor how the pitcher could know when the filter is replaced. Hmm.

    I have the faucet version.....suppose to blink green when filter is new, then yellow , and finally red when it needs to be changed. It blinks red all the time....hummm. I suppose I'll look and see if there is an 800# ? give'em a call.

    Is there a reset button? The pitcher has one.

    I'm suggesting that the "light" on the faucet that glows green, then Amber and finally red might be a button.

    No, I tried that first, then took it off the faucet & inspected closely....No reset.

    "100 gallons or three months" is on the faucet cartridge box. I saw a piece recently stating 50% of the bottle water brands are equivalent to tap water and this is pretty much common knowledge.

    It's the number of uses and has nothing to do with whether the water is clean or not.

    If your water is clear fresh well water the filter won't last any longer.

    Same as a printer cartridge counting pages.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
