The Water Filter that Puts Chemicals BACK Into Your Drinking Water: Pur Flavor Options

Share this merde!

Wretch wretch wretch. Ok, when I got our fabulous reverse osmosis filter system, I got it to remove icky chemicals from our drinking water. Before that, though, I had a Pur water filter, and I had it for the same reason. Why anyone would want a water filter to instead add chemicals back into their drinking water I don’t know, I’m sure, but that is apparently what Pur is banking on with..wait for it… water filter flavors.

Yes, that’s right. Pur has just introduced water flavoring cartridges to go with their water filters. With Pur Flavor Options water filter flavoring cartridges, your drinking water can have strawberry, peach, or raspberry chemicals injected into it right at the source!

I’m sorry. This is disgusting.

But in case you just have to try it out (or at least see for yourself) you can see the Pur Flavor Options water filter cartridge here.

Oh, if, on the other hand, you actually want your water to be pure, not Pur, check out this cool portable countertop reverse osmosis filter system!

  1. I was just up at the Berkeley Bowl and bought a couple bottles of bottled water for the road. They were the cheapest ones I could find, and were claimed to be filtered by reverse osmosis, ozonificationitizationalism, and such. Interestingly, instead of tasting like water, the water was fruity-licious. In a bad way that left a thin film of nasty fruity sadness on my throat. Let’s hear it for clean bottling lines.

  2. It is not filtered flavored water, it is a play on words. The flavoring is added into the flow of the water after it has been filtered and then sent out the spout together.

    A kitchen faucet is not designed for the type of pressure this system will put on the faucet.

    Changing that flavor cartridge to suit every ones taste and that pushing on the faucet…..
    Oh boy I can see a major recall or class action suit once every ones faucet starts to leak and or pull out.

    Go into your Kitchen and press lightly on your kitchen faucet and think to yourself how long will your kitchen faucet tolerate that kind of abuse.

    Buy one if you want, but I shame proctor and gamble for a very bad design and I wonder how much testing they actually did, if any.

  3. The Pur flavored cartridge contains Propylene Glycol 14%.

    Propylene Glycol is a colorless, viscous, hygroscopic liquid CH3CHOHCH2OH, used in anti-freeze solutions, in hydraulic fluids, and as a solvent. Also called “Propanediol”

    I was trying to find a more natural way to flavor water and this just isn’t it.
