CHICAGO, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Better drinking water is a short reach into the refrigerator or a turn of the tap away with Culligan's economical PIT-1 Water Filter Pitcher or US-EZ-1 Under Sink Drinking Water Filter system. Both products are Consumers Digest Best Buys and featured in the July/August 2012 print and online edition of the magazine. The Best Buy designation in water-filtration systems category is based on the products' features, warranty and the number and efficiency of contaminants that are removed.



The portability of the Culligan PIT-1 Water Filter Pitcher makes it a great choice for home, office and dorm rooms – anywhere an easy and economical solution for better-tasting, filtered water is desired. The PIT-1 combines a two-quart capacity with a filter-replacement indicator which alerts users to change the filter. The Culligan PIT-1 filter helps reduce mercury, copper, zinc, chlorine taste and odor, particulates and sediment. Another benefit of the pitcher is its space-saving oval design, which fits in most refrigerator doors. The spout cover prevents the transfer of refrigerator odors into the pitcher itself, and the handle is ergonomically designed for easy pouring.

For filtered tap water, the Culligan US-EZ-1 Under Sink Drinking Water Filter system (with faucet) is a high-quality, affordable solution. The quick-connect fittings make for an easy DIY installation, and the replacement filters for the US-EZ-1 are less expensive than competing models. The system produces healthier, better-tasting water for drinking and cooking, and reduces bad taste and odor, particularly chlorine.

All Consumers Digest Best Buy models are certified to improve the taste of water by National Sanitation Foundation, Water Quality Association and Underwriters Laboratories under the standards of the American National Standards Institute.

"We're delighted these two popular retail products have been named Consumers Digest Best Buys," said Curt Hilliard, Senior Vice President of Marketing, at Culligan International. "Both products are highly effective and convenient for improving the quality of drinking water for individuals and families who may not be able to install a whole-house water filtration system. At Culligan, we're proud to offer a wide variety of solutions that help bring better water to homes and businesses."

The Culligan PIT-1 Water Filter Pitcher and Culligan US-1-EZ Under Sink Drinking Water Filter system are both available online, in stores and home centers, and at select Culligan dealers across the country.
