If you don't want it taking up room in your 'Fridge, take it back and get the faucet mounted one.http://www.consumersearch.com/water-filters
January 2009. Although faucet-mounted water filters are more convenient than pitcher-style filters, and filter out more contaminants, we found a lot more complaints about this style -- especially about leaks. However, the 3-stage PUR FM-9400, along with other PUR faucet filters, earns high marks for filtering out many more contaminants than competing models. Independent tests show it filters out 99 percent of pharmaceuticals. This filter is also easy to install and earns top ranking when it comes to water taste. It's easy to switch between filtered and unfiltered water. If you don't need to filter out 30 contaminants, consider the Culligan FM-15A Faucet Filter (*est. $eighteen), which gets better ratings for durability.
We found the best comparison test of the PUR FM-9400 faucet-mount water filter at Consumer Reports, where it's rated and ranked along with 26 other filters, including three other faucet water filters. Good Housekeeping tests a PUR faucet-mounted filter for even more contaminants, but it's not clear which model is covered -- though they all use a three-stage filter. A Canadian site, Shopping Bags, also uses lab tests but finds taste comparisons the deciding factor. National Geographic's The Green Guide recommends the PUR FM-9400 based primarily on certification data from the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), while reviews at Consumer Guide, TheKitchn.com and ApartmentTherapy.com emphasize convenience and water taste. We found over 100 owner-written reviews of the PUR FM-9400 faucet filter at Amazon.com, with some of the complaints documented by two videos published at YouTube.
