"Pour through" capability
Why is water so important?

Hydration is vital to daily living. Every cell in your body needs water to function properly. It helps replenish skin tissues and moisturises the skin. Water flushes out toxins from your organs and intrinsic to any well-balanced diet. Your brain is approximately 90% water, so drinking water makes you more alert and increases your ability to concentrate.

Most health professionals agree that the average human requires 2 litres of water (8 glasses) a day, which is easier when you enjoy the taste.

Available in different sizes and colours to suit you
Why filter your water?

Whilst tap water in the UK is safe to drink it can contain high levels of chlorine which can have a very strong smell and taste. Heavy metals such as lead and copper can also be found in tap water due to both domestic plumbing and supply pipelines. Limescale also affects many people living in the UK.

BRITA filtration reduces limescale, chlorine and metals in your water allowing the natural flavours and aromas in tea and coffee to fully develop. Tea gleams clearly and is free from streaks, food flavours can fully unfold and small domestic appliances are protected against limescale build-up.

What can I use BRITA filtered water for?
Tea test, tea made with unfiltered tap water & tea made with BRITA filtered water
Less limescale, more flavour

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and hot beverages can be made of up to 98% water. So why not improve your cuppa by using BRITA filtered water and reducing the limescale, chlorine and impurities which leaves the oily appearance on top of your hot drinks and stop the full flavour from fully developing.

See and taste the difference with your own tea test. One cup of tea made with unfiltered tap water and then one made with freshly BRITA filtered tap water but be sure to use a kettle which is free of limescale, otherwise your boiled filtered water will end up with bits of scale and will impair the taste and aroma of your tea.

Cook fresh, clear and crisp food using filtered water

For cooking and healthy food

Stocks and soups, rice, lentils, pulses, vegetables and fruit all heavily rely on water either as their base or in their preparation. By using BRITA filtered water you're allowing the flavour of your ingredients to really come through and ensure that you get the best results in your cooking!


Cold refreshing filtered water the convenient way
Enjoy the clear, fresh taste

Use it in your cold drinks for refreshing cordials or try something different and use filtered water in iced tea and coffee. You could make fruit filled ice cubes or refreshing ice lollies, delicious sorbets or fruit salad desserts.

Protect small domestic appliances with BRITA water filtration
Prevents limescale build up

You can use filtered water in your small domestic appliances. With the reduction of limescale, this could help prolong the lifetime of your kettle, coffee machine, steamer, rice cooker, steam mop or iron.

Elemaris – The premium model

The Elemaris Meter is a premium water filter jug, which features ‘Meter’, the smart cartridge exchange indicator that measures water hardness, volume and time for optimum BRITA performance. The intelligent Meter uses three different measurements (volume of water used, your water hardness and time) to determine when the filter cartridge needs replacing. This means you can always enjoy BRITA filtered water at its best.

jugs
Includes fully recyclable MAXTRA cartridge

The Elemaris Meter filter jugs are available in two sizes:

  • ‘Cool’ model with a 1.4 Litre filtered water capacity, 2.4 Litre total capacity. Slim design, conveniently fits in your fridge door
  • ‘XL’ model with a 2.2 Litre filtered water capacity, 3.5 Litre total capacity. Extra-large design, ideal for your kitchen worktop or dining table.

The Elemaris Meter features a pour through lid for easy one-handed filling, a soft grip handle and a non-slip base.

The MAXTRA cartridge contains a mix of activated carbon and ion exchange resins. The ion exchange resin reduces the carbonate hardness (limescale) and permanently absorbs metals, such as lead and copper from your water, which can occur as a result of plumbing. The activated carbon reduces substances that may impair taste, such as chlorine and chlorine compounds (where present). The MAXTRA filter cartridge is 100% recyclable.

    I used to use bottled water for drinking and cooking, until I purchased this jug. Overall I am very pleased with the purchase. The design is good, it looks elegant, and you don't need to open the lid to fill the water which is convenient. However, I agree with previous customer reviews that it leaks from the handle if filled to the top (hence 4 stars). I can definitely taste the difference between filtered water and tap water, it's got rid of the bleachy smell of tap water, and gives the water a slightly sweet/pure taste.

    There's a BRITA Meter in the lid, which is "the first intelligent cartridge exchange indicator with 3 Way measurement of water quality". This is somewhat convenient because it tells you when to change the cartridge. However I'm not too sure whether this actually gives an accurate measurement of the water quality, or it's just another posh version of the 'Memo' indicator found on some other BRITA jugs, which typically tells you to change after 1 month. This speculation initially came up as I saw the metering pins were actually in contact with the unfiltered water at the top part of the jug (i.e., not yet being filtered through the cartridge), so measuring the quality of unfiltered water is pointless in my opinion, and I can't justify the quality of unfiltered tap water changing from 100% to 0% over a matter of weeks. Well, I could be wrong, perhaps I haven't quite grasped the measuring mechanism of it yet. Anyway the other evidence was that, I went on a 1-week trip during which I obviously didn't use the jug, but the indicator still prompted me to change new cartridge after about 1 month of use (I didn't use it heavily in the other 3 weeks either). Having said that, even if it's just another version of 'memo' indicator which promps you to change the cartridge after 1 month, it's still better than not having it at all.

    The Brita filter does its job well, the water tastes a lot better than when it's unfiltered. The main flaw with the product is that the filter meter is quite simply a timer. When I didn't use it for 3 weeks it still managed to go down by 2 bars. This is obviously a ploy by the manufacturer to make people by more filters regularly.

    I purchased this to replace my kenwood water filter jug, as it broke after three good years. I opeted for Bita as it seems to be the most popular brand in this field. I have used it for the last couple of weeks and i really like it. i will put the pros and cons in a list to it's easier to follow:

    Pro:

    Good looks
    Good capacity (2.2 filtered)
    Easy to refil, no need to open the lid
    handy display
    quick filtering
    grips to the surface
    solidly built

    Cons:

    if you are pouring when it's full, some water might come out the refiling using the automatic lid
    wont fit in the fridge (i was aware of it before i bought it)

    in the end, i am very happy with the purchase, very good price and as ever, great service and delivery from Amazon.

    I have been using Brita jugs for years - one at work and one at home. I have an older one with the round filters at work and a more recent large jug at home which takes Maxtra filters. I decided to upgrade the home one to this Elemaris and love it! Same high quality Brita filtered water but with easier meter to reset, quicker filtration and no pre-soaking required for the Maxtra filter. It's a great product!

    This is a great worktop filter, but do note, if you like your water chilled, it's not meant to fit in the fridge! Its size means you don't have to fill up so often and it's far easier to fill than my last one as you don't have to remove the lid. Yes, it will feel heavier if you're used to using a lower volume water filter, but hey, that's physics...
    I've used water filters for years and this is by far the best in terms of water quality. I drink herbal teas, so can really notice the difference in clarity.
    If you over fill, some water will run down the handle, but I don't find this too much of a problem, especially as this ensures that unfiltered water doesn't mix with the filtered.

    Colour Name: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    This isn't the first Brita 'Maxtra'-type water filter jug I've used. The first was a Brita Aluna Xl. That was o.k. - well, I'm still using it - but it has a fairly limited capacity and the 'memo' cartridge meter function is pretty basic, simply warning you when you've been using the same filter for a while.

    But this one is much better. For a start, the meter actually does a bit more than simply time the usage. According to the manual, the meter:

    '...monitors the filtration performance and indicates the remaining cartridge life . The three-way measurement takes into consideration the volume of water filtered, water quality (hardness) and time'.

    So, whereas the meter on the Aluna simply sits on top of the jug, this one has a couple of sensors that dip into the pre-filtered water. It also indicates when water is going through the system by displaying a flashing row of drops.

    Another feature of this water filter jug is that you don't have to take the lid off in order to fill it (unlike the 'Aluna'). There is a covered hole in the top on a spring. When you run water on to it, it drops down, allowing the water to enter. Of course, the first time I filled it, I opened the tap far to wide with the result I sprayed myself and the whole kitchen with water - but, after a little practise, I determined the force of water required to open the trap door without soaking the kitchen.

    It certainly seems to have a much larger capacity than my previous 'Aluna' model. That is good, but it does also mean that the jug is pretty hefty when full. Still, it has a very sturdy rubberised hand grip that feels solid and more than capable of handling the weight.
