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.

jugs
jugs

The Fjord, Marella and Aluna water filter jugs feature ‘Memo’ the cartridge exchange indicator which reminds you when to replace your filter cartridge, so you can always enjoy BRITA filtered water at its best.

The Fjord filter jug is available in the ‘Cool’ size and the Marella and Aluna filter jugs are available in two sizes:

  1. ‘Cool’ model, slim design, conveniently fits in your fridge door
  2. ‘XL’ model, extra-large design, ideal for your kitchen worktop or dining table

Both the Fjord and Marella jugs feature a flip top lid for easy one-handed filling. The Fjord jug also features a soft grip handle and a non-slip base.

Taking the MAXTRA filter cartridge, 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). By reducing limescale, chlorine and impurities from your tap water which can affect the taste and aroma of your hot and cold drinks and your cooking and baking, allowing the full flavour and aroma of your food and drink to fully develop. The MAXTRA filter cartridge is 100% recyclable.

    4.0 out of 5 stars very good 8 Dec 2009
    This jug is just as good as expected. it completely takes out the chlorine smell of tap water and it does it quite quickly. It's very easy to use and after the first couple of steps (soaking the filter and a coule of filtering cycles you have to do) it's hassle free.
    The timer on the lid reminds you of when the month is over so you can change the filter. The plastic is of good quality and feels very durable.
    Overall a very good product.

    5.0 out of 5 stars So quick and efficient! 28 Nov 2009
    Verified Purchase
    Easy to fill, quick to filter the water through, and we can really taste the difference between hard London tap water and Brita filtered water. This is a good size as well, so we have to refill it less frequently. This is handy, as we use the filtered water for the kettle, iron and to water the pot plants! This is of course in addition to drinking water!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brita Marella XL water filter jug 3.5l 28 Oct 2009
    By Sue O
    Verified Purchase
    Very good size jug and it filters much faster than my old generation Brita did.

    The only slight niggle is the flap down propection cap on the spout as it tends to deflect the water to the side a bit which can be a problem if you are attempting to transfer the water to a bottle with a small neck.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Love the design of the jug 5 Dec 2012
    By Iva
    Verified Purchase
    I did quite a research before buying BRITA Marella XL and am extremely happy with it. The whole jug is very well designed, particuarly the lid which keeps all dust off, and very importantly allows you to pour out clean filtered water while the top compartment is full and still filtering. The large size is good for the two of us - for drinking and cooking - I fill it about twice a day. BRITA says that the plastic doesn't leach any chemicals in the water, which has been my main concern, and as they don't do glass jugs I'll have to trust them. The plastic it is made of feels good quality and doesn't have any smell (as opposed to some plastick kettles I have had).
    Regarding the cartridge, I do get tiny black bits in the water from time to time, and I have to dismantle completely and rinse the whole jug about once or twice a week to remove them. The manual to the jug says that this is normal and that the carbon bits are perfectly safe, however I have been getting them quite a lot with my first cartridge so hoping that the new cartridges will be better.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Bought one of these today 4 Jun 2009
    got one not on Amazon - however had to take it back immediately as the lid where you can fill the jug with water had snapped off from hinge. If you can check it before you buy, it is a good idea to do so. Seems to be working fine at moment!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great filter jug but cheaper in Asda 2 Mar 2012
    By MC
    Verified Purchase
    This water filter jug was bought as a replacement for a Kenwood one. I much prefer this one because it holds more water plus I prefer the design of the lift-up flap where you fill it with water. On my old Kenwood one, plus other Brita models, there is a turn dial which slides to one side to allow it to be filled with water but sadly after much use these choke up with scale so fail to open at all (to make matters worse they slide into an internal part of the lid so you can't even get to it to clean it). Not with this one though! It's great, I really like the design plus the cartridges very quickly filter out the horrible smell and taste of chlorine.

    However I have just been to my local Asda and have seen it is 3 less in there on normal price, 6 less on offer - plus this was in the choice of white, red or blue. Naturally I wish I'd checked there first. It's always best to shop around!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brita Marella XL water filter jug 17 May 2010
    The water in our area of Hertfordshire is very hard. Water from the tap tastes metallic. The Brita Marella produces perfectly clear water (cups of tea are much more enjoyable now) and there is no longer a taste of metal. Well worth the purchase.

    This filter jug is far superior and more economical than the Brita Elemaris slimline jug that cons you into changing the cartridge every 8 or 9 days instead of the usual once a month. The lid has a good size opener in it to fill from the tap and it doesn't leak from the handle as the Elemaris jugs do -I've had 2 of the Elemaris jugs, the 2nd one's lid timer packed up after a few months too. My only critisicism is that this Marella XL only seems to come in white, and I would have liked to have a red or black lid, but this is hardly important given the performance it gives. I wouldn't buy any other one now.
