I've had my PUR large pitcher for several years and have really liked it. The filters help so you don't have to buy as much bottled water for everyday use (when making coffee, drinking water, tea, mixing into foods...). However, in my last package, I got 2 'dud' filters. The 1st one did not allow the water to drip into the pitcher and no matter how many times I emptied, removed, and reinserted the filter, it did not work. I tossed into the trash (goodbye $$) and opened the 2nd one. That one worked like a charm. Then it came time for the 3rd...lo and behold, it was exactly like the first one (goodbye to more $$)...talk about a rip-off! The filters are not that inexpensive and to have to toss 2 of them really irked me.
If this had never happened, I'd be thrilled and the rating would have been different but, 2 duds out of 3 chances? Nope, not a good thing.
Tested this on and a couple competitive filters as well, and this one lasted the longest and did the best job.
This kind of filter came with the PUR pitcher that I bought. The instructions said to change the filter every 2 months. When it was time to change the filter I changed this one out with a cheaper Great Value water filter. The Great Value filter, which seems to be modeled more closely to a Brita filter, allowed the water to filter through much more quickly but with a notably higher amount of chlorine taste passing through. Upon closer inspection of the PUR filter I noticed that there is a spongy cellulose media above and below the charcoal part and I think this makes the big difference. If you want water that is absolutely filtered as much as possible, without having to deal with residual charcoal pieces in the first 2 filtrations then this is ideal. Just do not mistake your filter for a "dud" if it takes a long time for the water to filter through.
I drink tons of water and want it to taste pure and good. This filter is a bit of a pain to prepare - you have to soak it first; however, it's worth the time. The water is filtered and does not have a chemical taste. I highly recommend it. Compare prices because these can range in price.
I needed replacement filters, so price was the only variable. Walmart.com had the lowest price.
Own an older PUR pitcher which used the old replacement filter w/a built in water replacement indicator. Had to contact manufacturer to find a comparable filter. Shopping on Walmart's online website made purchasing easier and the cost of the filters beat Walmart's store price. Please the order online and was able to pick it up within 4 hours after placing the order. The filters were less expensive if purchased online than purchasing in the store. Not sure why the filters are less buying online when Walmart pulls the item from their shelf.
Good product, the filter doesn't last long as the faucet type, but does the job. Note, that it doesn't filter everything out there, if you live in a area with light to moderate contaminates, this is fine. Heavy contaminates you may need a industrial filter.
This is what I needed in a 3-pk! I think it was ready to pick up 15 min after I ordered it.
I have a 7 CUP PUR filter jar. I fill the top portion with water, and 60% stays there, 40 % filters down. Then I take out the filtered water from the container, later more water gets filetered out. Dont know what is the problem. If the product manufacturers know about this, they can try and fix it.
But otherwise, this is a good value for money.
Needed some new filters, so I bought this online because there wasn't a Walmart nearby at the time. I did go to a store recently, and found them to be cheaper if bought there instead of online.
I searched on the internet & in stores & Walmart was still the cheapest!
I have tried other filters but they did not work as well as this one. the water from this filter tastes well and it lasts long. I don't buy any water from those unhealthy plastic bottles anymore.
Great filters and the price is reasonable with free shipping. I highly recommend this product.
Great product for the price. Water has an excellent taste. I honestly did not think I was going to be happy with this purchase; wrong. Will buy over and over again.
It's cheaper to buy three together than just one, and I am happy to store them in case I forget to buy a back-up filter. With the one that comes with the pitcher, I don't have to worry about buying a filter for a year/12 months!
We live in an area where the water tastes terrible and is full of iron and other minerals. It tastes terrible and on several occasions has given us gut aches (goodness only knows what's in there). These filters do a great job of cleaning up the water. Our family feels safer and the water tastes good!
These filters are not like the filters I purchased when I started using a PUR pitcher 3 years ago. They clog up fast. I m getting 2 weeks at the most, out of these Walmart purchased filters. The 2 month reminder sticker is a slap in the face. when I read other reviews complaining of this problem i didn't believe it. Now I believe. Do not buy these filters.

They perform as described. I have been using them for years but they are a little pricey so I finally broke down and purchased a whole house system.
We have an older PUR water dispenser about 4' tall. They don't make filters specifically for it anymore. However, my hubby was able to make these work by cutting part of the top off. Now they work fine.
Great product .
