Don't bother, just use whatever filtered pitcher you already have and like. There were no miraculous benefits of the water after six weeks. It is a bad design (square edges are sharp), and it pours so slow that it can be annoying. Also, the slightly-off square design is a pain to get back together.
Save your money. This pitcher is nothing special, and quite frankly, my PUR works better and tastes good and clean. I will be going back to that.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
We used a PUR filters as well, but PUR filtered water will be oxidizing water, while TuraPur water will be anti-oxidizing water. We used an ORP meter (Milwaukee, model MW500) and got a reading of -231 from TuraPur pitcher filtered bottled water that, before filtering, read +216; so for us, the product works as advertised.
