Brita Jug Faulty Lid


Yes just bought my Brita jug and my lid keeps falling off as well. Just doesn’t fit. I will be contacting the company to ask what the problem is. The filtration part is great but faulty lid is annoying.

The ONLY Water Filter that removes COPPER


The Marella wasn't and will not be the only Brita Water Filter I have and will use.

I suffer from a very rare genetic illness (Wilson's Disease), I accumulate copper in my body until if left untreated can be fatal.

I got my first Brita back in the early 80's, when I was a teenager, 18 years old, as the years have passed, not only is it helping my body by lessening the copper intake, but now at the ripe age of 52 years young, not only in my opinion a person who has never been particularly frond of a glass of water, does the water taste better. BUT my kettle which I ONLY use filtered water in loves it!! the scale build up is minimal.

Black discharge from filter


Even it says it is harmless. I still feel disgusted by the black tiny charcoal from the filter. And it says normal on their website. If I knew this , I won't purchase.

works well


works well; I appreciate the `flip' up and down easy to fill lid design even though the lid is quite flimsy in nature.

Difficult to put the lid back on (after cleaning) and get the pourer cap to go up and down freely; I broke mine (due to anger) and had to super glue it back together.

ps: cheaper filters (especially in bulk: 3 for $22.43; 12 for $82.47 etc) can be purchased via ebay; although you have to wait for them usually from england/ireland: usually free postage.



Average, doesn't filter well


It is an average product, it doesn't actually filter much of the water especially if you have heavy contaminated water. Get a proper filter if you are serious about your drinking water.

Questions & Answers

I like the water jug and filtered water but the lid and the contents fall out easily if you tip the jug to empty all the water. I've been holding the lid down with my hand so it doesn't happen too often but this can't be right. I see from other posts it's probably a design flaw of this jug. Did anyone get an answer from the company about whether other jugs they make have the same flaw?

No answers



why is dirty water coming through my filter housing?

1 answer

Probably because your filter is due for a change? Suggest you write to Brita if you have any further questions as I'm not the expert. I just use my jug and it's fine.
