    I only had the pitcher for a couple of months & it doesn't much matter how I review the pitcher at this point because you can't buy the filters for it anymore. Had I known this I would never have purchased it. So now I have to buy another pitcher, Brita most likely, & throw this one away. Or use it to water plants. What a waste. Amazon should not sell a product that requires parts that are unavailable or discontinued.

    Update 6/6/12
    There is a seller on Amazon that has the filters:
    Restore Clean Water System Replacement Filter - 3 Pack
    Because no one else is selling these, maybe this seller just has some overstock (?)

    Update 12/18/12
    Well...the filters are gone again; can't find them anywhere. So why do they still sell the pitchers!? If you are thinking of purchasing one of these pitchers - DON'T! You won't be able to get the filters when you need them.

    I have been using this system for almost a year. Sometimes there are a few carbon particles in the water, but it doesn't really bother me. I checked on all kinds of similar water filtration systems, and this is the one I picked. This is the one I really use daily. I had tried a popular brand in the past (pitcher type), but I really didn't think it did the job and I quickly lost interest in using it. Now, I live in an area of California that had a lot of farming at one time and the area definately had a problem with chemical well contamination, due to pesticides (not to mention the water tasted horrible and still does). This system greatly improves the taste of the water and I believe it is doing a good job filtering my water.

    Originally, I was going to purchase a self-contained water filtration system at three times the cost as it implied it even filtered swamp water to acceptible drinking levels. However, I researched the products and chose this one instead. It does the job as far as I'm concerned and it sure beats the cost of high priced bottled water!

    I got this unit on sale, and love it. There are some minor drawbacks, though: As one reviewer stated, some carbon particles do float into the water (though only into the pre-filter reservoir in my experience, not into the actual drinking water). Also, this reservoir only holds 4 cups of water, so you have to fill it up in stages; however, if the reservoir were larger, the unit would be larger as well (obviously), and I find it is just compact enough to fit easily into my fridge, under my cabinets, into the sink, etc. My main grip is that the lid does not snap on, so you have to hold it down with your thumb whenever you tilt the pitcher to pour. Overall, though, I think it is terrific.

    We have a private well with possible seasonal issues. I had done much research on disinfection equipment for private wells and was considering options that ranged from a "pure" drinking water station to whole house chlorine disinfection. We had settled on the "do nothing" option until I saw this new product. Wow. I can not believe the traditional filter pitcher companies had not come up with this; a UV light in the pitcher to provide disinfection of bacteria. This is a great solution. While not the same removal of bacteria that a microbiological filter can provide, for the cost it is great peace of mind at a very cost effective price.

    I bought this unit (3 actually) on sale so that I would stop buying the 24 packs of bottled water. I felt that it is wasteful, bad for the environment and expensive to drink bottled water. My water at home does not taste bad and I've been drinking it for decades, but I do like the comforting thought of having my water purified just in case. For about the cost of 3 cases of water (about 3 weeks supply), I bought this purification system. The filters for the pitchers are not easily found so I stocked up by buying replacement filters @ Amazon as they seem to have the best price. I'd hate to not be able to get filters. Although I've had the reverse happen as I have two packages of PUR filters and no pitchers to use with them as those filters are now obsolete and none of the current PUR filtering pitchers or devices accept these older filters. This is why I bought more than one of these water purification filtering pitcher systems. At the price I paid, I should have bought more, but they are bulky and I didn't want to store any more than I have.

    The instructions say to replace the filters about once a month, but there is a warning light in the purification device that will light up when they recommend that you replace the filter. PUR also recommends monthly filter replacement but I suspect this is more for their income cash flow rather than our safety concerns. I plan on replacing my filters every two-three months so that I can reduce my cost of filtered water by 50%.

    I purchased this item because the water in our area is supposed to be the cleanest and best. Well our water company sent a letter informing us that they failed the state standards for coliform bacteria. The only people who should be concerned and possibly at risk are infants, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. I meet two of the three categories. I am a medical laboatory scientist and was furious with the information from the water company. I know that UV light kills bacteria and I am ecstatic with this product. I live in an apartment and don't have a large kitchen. I had been using a Brita filter--but that filter does not kill bacteria. This system works well for me. Because of the other reviews I purchased the extra filters--but I haven't had to use one yet.
