When I was a kid, I never cared if the water came out of the fridge or not, I drank it straight from the tap, in fact if I was thirsty enough, I would drink it straight from the hose outside without ever coming in the house! Kids today would say that both of those are “gross”!
Now, I remember when I got older getting a fridge with the water in the door – now THAT was worth coming in the house to drink! All my friends agreed – we would all line up and fill cup after cup of the cold water or ice water and drink to our hearts content!
Now, we have discovered filtered water! I don’t think my kids ever drink tap water, it is always from the water bottle in the fridge! So, we have a filtered water pitcher that we use and they all , including my hubby like it much better.
Well, not me – I think it has an odd taste to it, I like tap water. So, when Filtrete sent me their Filtrete Water Pitcher from 3M to try, I thought I would be testing it on the kids and my hubby and seeing what they thought – since it wasn’t my cup of
My kids and hubby like it, too. I like the design of the pitcher – I can’t really tell you why I like it more than the other one – it is just more pleasing to look at for me..
It does seem to hold more water than the one we had and it filters faster – sometimes it’s needed in a hurry! You know how all our lives are too rush – rush!
So, we have a Pur water pitcher – we have bought 2 of them, the first one broke at the handle – this one from 3M seems sturdier to me.
The 3M pitcher holds more water than the Pur and the Pur takes MUCH longer to filter than the 3M. In order to fill up the Pur water pitcher – I have to fill up the top area and let it filter – it takes a while – and then fill it again! With the 3M, there is virtually NO wait time, it filters as fast as I pour it in! The 3M filters so quickly my 13 year old is convinced it can’t really be filtering the water! lol
