Blupure 13 Stage Countertop Water Filter Review

For more than 3 years now, we've been using a popular branded faucet mount water filter. We switched from getting the $0.25 per gallon self-refill to a home water filter because it's more convenient and we actually save even a little. The problem with the faucet mount water filter we have at home is that the faucet mount's indicator light breaks down in less than 2 years. We also have to change the filter once every 2 to 3 months depending on how much water we filter. Our second faucet mount just broke down and the indicator light isn't working anymore so I was glad to receive the Blupure 13 Stage Countertop Water Filter to try.

The Blupure 13 Stage Countertop Water Filter arrived in a box. The first thing I noticed was that this is way bigger and heavier than our faucet mount water filter. I love the idea of a 13-stage filter though because I had a feeling that this will be more effective in filtering our water.
It was very easy to install the Blupure 13 Stage Countertop Water Filter. I actually couldn't wait for hubby to come home so I experimented and tried to assemble it on my own. I was successful enough and in about 5 minutes, I was able to set it up on our kitchen sink. The filter is already set up inside the big, white container and I only needed to plug in the faucet adapter of the water filter to our kitchen faucet and I was ready to try it.

What I love about this is that the faucet adapter isn't heavy so it doesn't weigh our kitchen faucet down. The big, white part which filters the water is connected to a tube so I conveniently placed it on the side of our sink. I also like how the knob on the side of the faucet adapter easily switches to normal tap water and to filtered water.
Prior to filling up our recycled milk jugs turned water containers with filtered water, I first let the water on the filter counter top flow for about 5 minutes. The initial water is brownish and muddy in color BUT do not panic. Our old faucet mount water filter also does this whenever we change to a new filter. :)

After 5 minutes of letting the water flow on the water filter, I grabbed a cup and tasted the water. It tasted crisp and fresh and free from any metallic or weird taste. I can't stand drinking water which have a weird taste so I'm happy with the Blupure 13 stage countertop water filter.

Every time I use the Blupure Water Filter to filter our water, I let it flow for about 2 minutes first to ensure that the water which was left on the filter goes out. I do this because our old faucet mount requires a 2 minute flowing water first to ensure all the old water inside the water filter goes out first.

The only problem I notice is that there is no indicator for the water filter or when to change it. I made a note on my calendar on when I installed this since it says the filter is good for a year. But then, our water consumption varies daily (I use the filtered water for cooking, drinking, baking, etc) so it'd be more nicer if there is an indicator if we needed to change the filter already.

Other than that, I love the Blupure 13Stage countertop water filter because it's easy to install, no drilling holes required, easy to use and gives us a fresh and crisp tasting water.
