Cons: Cant wash hair in the sink. Where the heck do I find the replacement filters?????????
I bought the Brita faucet mount water filter for my mother who I live with. I had purchased it as a mother's day gift for her. She uses it every day and it lasted 4 months with no replacement. The water has a clean, crisp taste. It is perfectly clear and tastes like bottled water. I always use it to make my daughter's formula and feel better knowing that she is getting nothing but nutrients in her bottle.

I paid $34.99 for the Brita faucet mount water filter and it is worth every penny. I bought it in CVS and I have seen it in other drug stores as well.
The only problem I see is not with the Brita faucet mount water filter so to speak. But with the stores you find them at, because I can't seem to find the replacement filters anywhere. That is one thing I am not happy about but it has nothing to do with the filter. The Brita faucet mount water filter works great. I have never used on that made the water taste quite so good. " I hate water " most of the time. To me it always had a bitter taste before we got the Brita faucet mount water filter .
As of yet it does not leak , it lasts as long as it claims to, the water is great and clear, my mother says it is the best gift she ever got and that should say it all because she is way too picky.
There is one down side " for us females "
You can't fit your head under it to wash your hair if your one to wash your hair in the sink. But you can easily unscrew the brita and just put it back on when your done. Other than that the Brita faucet mount water filter is perfect in every way I can see.
