Excellent water filter - so easy to set up and use
This water filter is so easy to set up and use.
Manage to purchase the replacement filter on the cheap as well - equals to $5.80 per filter.
The filter element can easily last 1 - 2 months. So it's cheap to use.
Filters out chlorine from your water improving the taste.
I got two of these so we can use them as our main jug in the house. The filtering system really works great and the compartments of the jug are sealed well to separate the filtered from the unfiltered water. The filter cartridges, however, are a bit expensive so I try to purchase them in bulk as much as possible during sales.
Good quality product
This Brita filter jug is a recommended purchase.
Easy to set up and use. Water tastes better after being filtered. I think the filter cartridges can be used a bit longer than recommended.
Replacement cartridges are a bit expensive, so keep an eye out for when they are on sale.
Works really well, cold filtered water is heavenly
The manual and packaging are very light on details (and on english too, for that matter) but it does contain the bare minimum you need to know to prep/prime the filter.
Filtering speed is quite slow, to fill it up you'll need to fill the funnel (top section before the filter) about 3 times, waiting a minute or so between each fill.
The lid manages to fit over the funnel tight enough to stop unfiltered water from spilling out of the funnel when pouring or tilting to fit into the fridge door (where it takes up quite a bit of space.) The han...dle is comfortable to hold when full of water, and the water flows out very nicely when pouring. Filling is a bit fiddly as the lid has to be taken off; I find this is most easily done by first pushing the funnel up a bit (using the notch above the handle) and then taking the lid off sideways. There are other models which are easier to fill, but really this is not much of an effort. The actual quality of the filtered water is amazing, it feels so much smoother to drink than water straight from the tap.
Questions & Answers
Just got an e-mail from BRITA sating that I should change the filter 'at least every month'. From the website, it is good for 150 litres. It also depends on the quality of the water which is not mentioned. I find the misleading marketing from BRITA offensive. We have good quality water and only use it for the coffee machine and the steam iron. I change the filter every 4 months, whether it needs it or not!! So BRITA, what is the actual change-over time for the filters?
