Culligan FM-15A Faucet Filter
The Culligan FM-15A is extremely popular due to its simple design, reliable performance, and affordable price. Although very basic, the FM-15A is NSF Certified and proven to not only reduce unpleasant odors and tastes, but also reduce the amount of lead, chlorine, cryptosporidium, and giardia cysts present in the water. Filters are rated to last for about 200 gallons but the amount of time this adds up to depends on individual usage, and could be anywhere from around two months to half a year.
A switch to disengage the filter and use regular tap water helps to preserve the filter when purified water isn't needed, especially when using hot water. With a low cost of entry, a reasonably low cost to replace filters, and a two-year warranty, the Culligan FM-15A is an excellent basic and affordable choice for a faucet water filter.
