The Pur Basic PPT700W is part of the Water Filter test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Water Filter models like the Basic PPT700W are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Flavor and Odor Reduction: A measure of how effectively the filter removed flavor taints, along with the resulting odor taints, that CR added to plain water with minimal intrinsic flavor and odor (the "control" water). The test measured how close the flavor and odor of the filtered water was to that of the control water.

Clogging: The percent change in a filter's flow rate over the course of the cartridge's capacity.
