- PUR VS BRITA
Take a look at the reviews for this Pur water filtration system here and here.
Now I consider myself a maven similar to the one Gladwell creates in his wonderful Tipping Point, but even I was a bit blown away by these glowing reviews. I never liked my current Brita filtration system and think the designs of their pitchers are all horrid.
The reviews on amazon.com (which by the way a good maven always checks before making a purchase) were mixed about Brita. Some people liked them some complained about their design and some people just have nothing better to do than review a water filtration system. I love that someone said "This thing will change your life!" That's brilliant.
I was on the lookout for a new larger pitcher, possibly one of those huge spout ones that hold like 50 gallons of water. I was disappointed by what Brita had to offer.
Then I decided to search around a bit more and remembered there's a challenger in the seedy underworld of water filtration society once dominated by the ruthless leader Brita. Pur is the new kid in town.
Those reviews.. my god! I couldn't believe it.. it's rare that one product has so many glowing reviews on any website. I was so blown away I flicked off my old brita pitcher and purchased the Pur Ultimate Water Dispensing Badboy. I will receive it in 3-5 business days and will let you know how it is.
