The PUR MaxION Faucet Mount Water Filter (Ultimate) is an essential drinking water filter for your home or apartment. This is the best water filter I have ever used thanks to its easy one-click installation and truly great tasting water. Moreover, the filters perform very well (see the performance data sheet below). In addition, this product from PUR is also very effective at taking away chlorine taste and smell from tap water. You can test it out yourself and I think you will be quite impressed at the difference.
As a faucet mount, the water filter is super convenient to use. With a flip of a switch, your regular tap water becomes filtered drinking water. And when you are done, flip back the switch, and your regular tap water comes back. There is no reduction in the tap water pressure or volume. Other faucet mount water filters I have used reduces the tap water pressure and volume when the faucet mount is installed.

Installation Process with Step by Step
Below, you will see my personal step by step installation process.
I found installing this water filter to be a breeze. Integral to this installation is the adapter that connects your faucet to the PUR filter. Once you get that step right and screwed in, the rest of it is really a one click installation.
Everything that is included: PUR MaxION faucet mount water filter main base, 2 replacement filters, and various adapters to fit your water faucet.
You can see in the picture below that the PUR water filter faucet mount comes with a few different adapters. Use the one that fits your current kitchen faucet opening the best.
I used adapter A, a metal based screw-on adapter. Adapter A should fit most standard kitchen faucets. I would recommend using that first before trying the other ones.
Attach your water faucet before the metal adapter A is screwed on. Note that you may use adapter B, C, or D. This depends on what type of kitchen water faucet you have.
With the PUR water filter metal adapter A screwed on:
Here you can engage the one-click installation of the filter head. It basically “snaps” in and clicks as soon as you push the base up to the adapter. Securely installed with no hassles!
I placed in one of the new PUR MaxION faucet mount water filter cartridges as seen below:
Voilà! Purified drinkable water installed within 3 minutes and drinkable as soon as you flip the switch! Also, this elevates the look of your sink area with the stainless steel.
