Today this is the Culligan PIT-1 or pitcher-1.
Itís a real simple unit, great entry level model for those of you who are thinking about getting into filtering your water, and youíre just not sure, you just want to test the waters and see what the deal is. Hereís a great inexpensive way to get in and also a perfect method for those of you who are renting and just simply canít install a permanent system and you want the portability factor.
Real easy to handle these units, the lid comes off and the cartridge is right here. Iím not going to take it out of the package, but if I did you would wash your hands, take it out of the package, soak it in water for fifteen minutes, run it under some running water to rinse away the carbon fines and get the cartridge ready to go. Then stick it in here, it just inserts into this slot. Twist it in place and fill it with water. You might have to discard the first couple batches of water, there might be some loose carbon fines that you might not want to drink. Just pour that off, fill it up again, let it filter; those carbon fines will go away after one or two pitchers full of water and then youíve got yourself a filter cartridge thatís good for fifty gallons of water.
Now this unitís a real basic unit so it doesnít have a timer device or anything like that. Itís got a little calendar here, a little dial calendar, and youíre just going to click that from month to month. Just set it, you know you change your filter in October, in one month now itís November, now itís December and now itís time to change the cartridge.
Probably good for anywhere from one to two months, depending on how quickly you think youíre going through fifty gallons of water.
Nice thing about this, it can be disassembled and washed; itís not dishwasher safe so donít put it in the dishwasher. But get in here with a scrub brush and soap and water and wash it out and it goes back together like nothing. Cartridge, lid it up, ice cold filtered water in the fridge.
Thatís the Culligan PIT-1.
