MAXION Filter Technology is the PUR Difference
While your tap water may look clean, it can contain potentially harmful contaminants picked up on its journey through aging pipes. PUR filters with MAXION technology reduce these contaminants.
MAXION Filter Technology is PUR's unique formulation approach for blending carbon and ion exchange materials.
Fits any PUR Pitcher and/or Dispenser
All PUR pitcher filters fit in any PUR pitcher or dispenser. Each filter provides up to 40 gallons - or 640 8oz cups - of water. For best performance, it's recommended that you change your pitcher filter every 2 months.
How PUR Filters Work
Activated carbon is the not-so-secret ingredient to PUR water filters. The carbon absorbs organic compounds and pollutants.
PUR activated carbon filters are made from coconut shells, which are 'heat treated' with steam. This produces pores within each grain of carbon, creating tiny tunnels and spaces, 1,000 square meters of surface area per gram of carbon.
That's approximately 200,000 sq. ft. of nooks and crannies to absorb and trap the contaminants in your tap water in each PUR faucet filter.
- Package includes 4 filters for use with the PUR 2-Stage Water Pitcher and Dispenser
- Reduces lead, 99.9 percent of microbiological cysts, and over 96% trace levels of pharmaceuticals while retaining beneficial fluoride
- 2-Stage design with activated carbon microfilter layer to reduce contaminants and a layer to trap sediment
- Single filter provides up to 40 gallons (1 to 2 months) of clean water and should be replaced after this period
- Available in 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-Packs

Top Customer Reviews
I contacted PUR's customer service and politely explained this situation, asking them for a remedy, or at the very least, I expected a reply. That was over one month ago. I got an auto-response return email saying they'd received my email and would reply. Thereafter, nothing. No a word in response.
I'm done. I've got four more 'new' filters that I'll try to use it, as painful as that has become. And today, I will purchasing some Brita pitchers and filters as replacements. I'll be tossing the PUR pitchers in the garbage, because that is where they belong.
Update March 16, 2014: After writing this review, I continued to research the problem. Many people have this same problem, and apparently Pur customer service had advised some of those who complained to "whack" the clogged/slow filters up against something hard, like the inside of the kitchen sink, a couple of times. I tried that and it did work on one of the filters. For awhile. It clogged up/slowed down again after maybe five or so fillings.
In another review, someone suggested directly spraying water into the two small holes at the bottom of the filter. I tried that too, and it worked for maybe two or three fillings. But it gave me an idea. I took a toothpick, and pushed it into each of those tiny holes, and gently rotated the toothpick before removing it. That appears to work well. I have since tried this procedure on two other filters that were very slow or wouldn't filter the water at all (again, brand new--straight out of the package), and once I do that with the toothpick, the filters work perfectly for the entire time (40 gallons, I keep track of the fillings).
I have now found a work-around. I won't upgrade the star rating of these filters, however, because I don't think Pur should make its customers do this much research and spend extra time AND money, simply to make their filters work properly. Furthermore, there are many people who will never figure this out, who will never see this review, or any other review suggesting fixes, and who will simply waste a lot of money on these filters. It's not right.
4/30/2015: After seeing other reviewers with same issue, I have adopted their research. Apparently PUR has put out this NEW product to replace the original product. My review stands. This NEW product seems to be causing all the problems ... and it seems everybody is having the same issues as I had. But the issues seem to be solely on PUR and not Amazon per se.
Soak the filters for 1 HOUR, not the 15-20 minutes they tell you in the instructions. Soak for an hour, rinse for 1 minute and bang the filter and shake it to loosen up the charcoal inside it. Be sure to rinse the little drain holes in the bottom of the filter too. That fixed the last two we put in - so far. Whether it slows down again or not, I don't know yet. We've refilled them each 2-3 times and they're working fine.
These are too expensive to just toss in the garbage brand new! If they do slow down before they are expired, I'll probably do another 1 hour soak and shake and bang, just to keep them going. If you have only one Pur pitcher/dispenser, that probably won't work well for you because you'll be out of service for at least an hour.
Hope this helps! And I hope Pur fixes their filters! I see we're not the ONLY people having problems with them.
I purchased a pack of four. It has been less than two months and I'm already on the third filter! None of the filters lasted more than two weeks. I have been using the same PUR filters for three years and they have worked perfectly. THESE PUR FILTERS ARE DEFECTIVE! I am in a location where I am unable to purchase new filters so I am now forced to buy a months supply of bottled water or buy a completely different water filtering system. I purchased enough filters that, according to manufacturing, should have lasted me 8 months not 2 months. Because I regularly purchase PUR filters, I thought I knew what I was getting. I now wish I would have a read the reviews. Please, do not make the same mistake I did in purchasing these. WARNING! Do not assume that these are the same PUR filters that you have grown to trust!
The picture is the amount of water filtered by filter number 3 , which was placed in the dispenser one week ago, after 5 hours! In case you can't see it clearly, the top is completely filled with water but less than an inch has been filtered.
