works well; but `backward' lid design
works well; but the lid design no longer has the `easy fill' flip lid of previous models such as the one I have (I am reviewing a friends which is the above model). 2.4 litre model has this feature. 3.5 litre model: the lid has to be completely removed to fill; why the backward step in lid design?
ps: cheaper filters can be purchased via ebay; although you have to wait for them usually from england/ireland: usually free postage.
The Brita Aluna is a fantastic product that is quick and easy to refill and pour. Much better than bottled water as you don't need to store it in a plastic bottle. I've got all my friends and family to purchase this fantastic product.
Fabulous product, really does make your water taste cleaner, not too big so it fits nicely in your fridge, durable handle, timer to tell you when next filter change should take place, easy to find in stores.
The filters are expensive to purchase. Occasionally Target has specials on their Brita range. I've found a few black specks floating around near the time the filter needed changing.
I'm not a food snob in any way but I do like my tea and coffee done a certain way. My mother moved to a new house and the water from the pipes was horrible. It was malodourous and tasted like a chemical soup. Tea and coffee tasted truly vile. I bought her this filter not thinking it would really make a difference and it has transformed the taste of her tap water. She's skeptical about things like this and being a pensioner, she's very frugal. She loves the filter and happily buys the replacement filters despite the cost factor (major for my mot...her who lives on the smell of an oily rag). She loves her coffee as much as I do and she can't imagine living without it now. Five stars as it does exactly what it's supposed to do. It really does filter the water and makes it taste better. Convenient size which doesn't take up too much bench or fridge space. Replacing the filters but is there a filter out there which doesn't require replacement filters?
I bought this water filter as I hate the taste of our water. With old copper pipes and chlorine taste in the water I have trouble drinking my tap water. I bought the Brita Aluna and it really does take the nasty taste out of the water and make it truly drinkable. The filters are expensive but they do last quite a long time and it is definitely cheaper than buying bottled water, especially if you drink a few litres of water a day like I do. The jug is big enough to hold plenty of water and if you buy the filters on sale it works out much cheaper. great product.
filters are expensive
We bought this water filter and although at first we didn't use it that much, due to a mosquito somehow getting into our tank water and laying wrigglers, we started using it all the time, and it really does filter our all the floaties. Some people are a bit funny about drinking rain water straight from the tap if they didn't grow up with it, so letting them know that it's filtered tends to put our guests a little more at ease with it! Filters are expensive, but not too bad if you buy a bulk pack.
Holds plenty of water. Really does filter out bad taste and 'floaties'. Indicator reminds you when you need to change the filter
We were given this jug/filter and being just 2 people, thought it would be too big for us. However we now have it on the bench all the time. Due to the size of the Jug even the cat and dog have clean filtered water now.
Hold plenty of water so not always filling it. Filters can be bought at the supermarket when shopping.
