A Water Faucet Filter That Actually Works!
The Brita faucet filter does an excellent job of filtering out impurities from tap water -- that is, when it manages to stay attached to the faucet. However, in my experience with it (two years and two different models), a tremendous amount of my valuable time was wasted trying to reattach the filter after it would repeatedly fall off. Although I have no direct experience with the Pur faucet filter, my understanding (drawn from other reviews) is that it suffers from the same problem.
Happily, after purchasing the CULLIGAN Faucet Filter several months ago, I can now report with confidence that it is plagued by no such similar defect. In other words, once attached, it remains firmly in place, and works every bit as effectively as rival brands. So for anyone who has tried those other brands and encountered endless frustration in endeavoring to keep them attached to the faucet, my advice is: Don't give up just yet! Try the Culligan model. It's solidly built, competitively priced, and replacement cartridges are readily available from OnlineShopDealer. For me, at least, the Culligan at last put an end to the gratuitous, time-wasting burden of having to continually reattach a recalcitrant water filter.
Better than brita
I love the culligan water systems. The base that the cartridge goes into is made better than britas,With brita I was buying a new base with almost every cartridge change and culligan is superior in price ,quality and every other aspect.And I think the water also taste better than water that is filtered using brita.Try it and see for yourself
Much Much better than Pur Filters
Finally, after wasting a couple of hundred dollars in Pur products, I moved to Culligan and have not been disappointed. It DOES NOT LEAK, the filter life is twice as long, and is much easier to replace.To top it, the subscribe & save pricing of onlineshopdealer is amazin !
Works for me!
I wanted a simple but effective economical water filter for my apartment. I did considerable research (including purchasers of various products at OnlineShopDealer) and at Consumers Reports as well as various internet sites. What appeared to be the best solution for me was a filter that attached to the tap. Simple to attach and effective water filtration. I've been using the Culligan FM-15RA level 3 filter for over a year now and besides being economical it is easy to install and to replace filters (every few months). Since purchasing, we had our water professionally checked for chlorine, bacteria and contaminents (metals etc) and it came through with fjying colors. We are very pleased with the unit.
It works with the FM-25!
This product actually fits my Culligan FM-25 Faucet Mount Filter perfectly! This is great because the FM-15RA cartridge is cheaper than the FM-25RA one.
Master Plumber/ Don't Forget!
You cannot expect this or any filter to last long! You got dirty water, or you wouldn't be looking here! I had one, and sadly, like most I left it on far too long. I put the replacement in, as per instructions, and bam! It was like NEW again!
So, please don't make this mistake with this or any other filter, I find this to be the finest. That's up to you.
The replacement filters cost the most, and the entire unit is SO inexpensive, don't give it another thought.
Filter your tap / drinking water. You'll notice a difference!
btw, I have no part in ownership in anyway of this business. Some others may be as good, check your CR recommendations..... I did!
BTW, Just changed mine out tonite. It's blasting out CLEAN, PURE WATER!
Hope you enjoy!
Easy to use - Best value for money
These filters are easy to use, just unscrew the old one, screw in the new one and forget about it for 2 months. It can be a bit tough to unscrew the old filter as you don't have much to grab onto (small triangular shape shown in the picture) but don't force it, just apply a constant pressure and it'll eventually start to move.
You will need to rinse out the filter (ironic I know) for 10 minutes before the initial usage with running water to remove the excess carbon that is in the filter. After that it just works.
As a reminder, put a note on your calendar or a reminder in your phone for 2 months when it's time to replace the filter again. If not nothing bad will happen, but I do notice the water flow starts to taper off if you leave off replacing it for too long.
The best thing about these filters is the cost and the fact that this filter takes out all the lead and other metals/minerals that are in your water or picked up from the pipes. Fresh clean water is always available, no need to worry about keeping the pitcher constantly filled. Its probably worth it for that alone.
Compared to the other options, I found this is the cheapest/easiest way other than getting a whole house filter.
Solid and It Works
Used PUR for years. Many problems with leakage and water waste. PUR provided warrantee replacement multiple times, but I got sick of it.
This Culligan is great. Rated as good as PUR or Britta. No fancy lights to tell you that the filter is used up--just place a note on your calendar every 2 months and that's it. The flow is slow--which to me just assures me that it is working. The best part is that it automatically springs back to the regular unfiltered setting when you turn the faucet off. This is important because accidentally running warm of hot water through these types of filters immediately ends their useful life. Many times I did this with the PUR only to have to discard an expensive filter after only a week or two. The Culligan has had no leakage or valve problems for over 6 months for me. Great price too--compared to competition.
Amazing filter, Better than Brita!
While it's been mentioned before that this filter meets or exceeds the filtering quality of Brita, I think it needs to be mentioned again just how amazing this product is. It is far superior in design from the Brita. Some background: I drink a lot of water; only water and green tea, frankly. I home-brew gallons of green tea a month, made with filtered faucet water, storing it in reusable glass bottles for personal use. I live in the desert where calcium and mineral deposits in the water are common and obvious if not filtered out. When the water is not filtered, it's obvious.
I first used Brita's disposable faucet filters and liked those pretty well, and then when that was discontinued, I went to Brita's other faucet filters (On-Tap, 42633, FF something or other). While the water with Brita was good, the device was poorly made, and I was changing filters quite often. Everything was plastic, even the attachment to the faucet was plastic. And while it had an indicator light to let me know when I "needed" to change the filter, that burned out/stopped working after about six months, leaving me to rely on what is commonly referred to as "taste buds", which to the dismay of the doltish, does not come with an indicator light. (Who needs an indicator light to tell them there's a difference in the way their water tastes?)
It bears repeating that both Brita and this Culligan filter receive high praise (top marks) from Consumer's Reports for filtering quality. But here's the selling point: Culligan is significantly cheaper and better made. Culligan's filters are each good for 200 gallons, Brita's filters are good for 100 gallons. Price one Culligan filter compared to two of the Brita and you'll see how much cheaper Culligan is. Plus, Culligan's faucet attachment is metal (stainless steel?), instead of cheap Brita plastic. (I've used mine on two different faucets, one with internal threads and one with external, the product comes with the attachments necessary to make it fit any faucet). And, to reiterate, Culligan's water tastes just as good (if not better) and filters just as effectively (if not more so) than Brita. PLUS, you can sign up for a subscription on these filters and get an additional 15% off, have them shipped to your door exactly when you need a new one and be done with it. If ever there were one, this is truly a no-brainer. Culligan is the hands-down winner. Pur need not even apply, Brita: go back to the drawing board. I love my water and Culligan is for real.
We have water with strong chlorine taste, these filters take that away well. It's easy to install, cheap, and surprisingly high quality!!! We also use them for longer than the recommended 2 months, it still filters it just gets slow.
