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.

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.

How do the water filters work?

Ion exchange resin reduces the heavy metals in your tap water, including lead and copper. It also reduces the carbonate hardness that causes limescale build-up in kettles and affects the taste and aroma of tea and coffee and the flavour of your food. Granulated activated carbon significantly reduces substances that affect the taste and odour of your tap water. They include chlorine, certain pesticides and organic impurities.

MAXTRA Filter Cartridge

The MAXTRA filter cartridge fits all jug systems and BRITA partner products such as kettles and hot beverage machines. Each filter cartridge last approximately one month, filtering up to 100 litres of water. Preparation is quick and easy, with no pre-soaking required and conveniently exchange using the ring pull handle. Each filter cartridge is 100% recyclable.

Have two jugs going all the time and it is amazing how much these filters have collected by the end of the month.

The Brita Maxtra system is expensive but very good if you want to avoid clogging up your kettle etc. with limescale

Good product. Good price. Recommended for Brita users.

Pros:
- You get 6 filters for a decent price
- Brita Maxtra filters are in my view the best filters on the market
- Maxtra filters let my switch from PET bottled water (is this really fresh?) for exorbitant prices to tap water. Without those filters, the tap water in my area is not good enough for drinking or making coffee. With these, I love the tap water and do not buy water in bottles anymore.
- Using these is ecological, much cheaper that bottled water, much more convenient and I personally think healthier that the PET stuff

Cons:
- none found

Used these in the past and they have always worked well but in the last few months after about 3 days of usage we are getting a strange smell.We have noticed it when making tea.Take a sip of tea and get a strange smell from it.We have used same teabags and milk for years.We used to change the cartridge once a month but now after a few days we are having to swap cartridges and its becoming false economy to use them.We are now running the tap for 2 mins and filling a kettle up and bypassing using the filter and the tea is fine.Its such a pain as I said earlier they used to work fine unless we have had a bad batch.

Works as intended! Do remember to treat the cartridge before use to remove any loose filter beads.
Though the beads are claimed to be edible, it looks unsightly in a glass of water! Treating the cartridge will only take a few minutes which will allow it to serve it's purpose for a month or more!

Water filtered through these cartridges will inherit a slight hint of sweetness initially, which will fade in distinction over the days. I would like to assume it to be the taste of properly filtered water!

Overall, I highly recommend this product.

We use a Brita water filter and keep it in the fridge at all times because our tap water is slighty odd tasting. This removes and impurities and changes the water to a perfect neutral taste. It saves a fortune on buying bottled water and is also better for the environment I think.

Brita advise changing the filter every 4 weeks, but I find you can get at least 8 weeks out of them. This is based on filling the jug at least twice a day. You'll know when it needs changing because the flavour of your water will change!
