Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

This stylish Aqua Optima water filter jug uses a unique, patented 5-step filter system to remove high levels of impurities from tap water.

Clean, clear water for all the family

The Aqua Optima water filter cartridges have a unique patented 5-step filtration system to remove impurities and potentially harmful substances from tap water and maintain a consistent fast flow rate throughout the life of the product.

Better tasting hot and cold drinks

Aqua Optima's unique formulation reduces levels of herbicides, pesticides and chlorine by up to 80%. The activated carbon also helps prevent the unattractive oily film that can occur on the surface of hot drinks.

Improves the look and taste of cooked vegetables

Aqua Optima's layer of ultra fine mesh gives extra clarity to filtered water, improving the look and taste of cooked vegetables.

Reduces limescale, extending appliance life

Calcium carbonate, common in hard water areas, causes the build-up of limescale in kitchen appliances. Using Aqua Optima filtered water will help extend the life of your kettle.

More economical than bottled water

Bottled water is far more expensive and is actually less regulated than our domestic tap water. Aqua Optima filtered water works out at under 4p per litre = a tenth of the cost of bottled water. Drinking filtered tap water also has far less impact on the environment, as most water bottles are non-biodegradable.

All Aqua Optima products are BPA free.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent aqua filter jug 1 Feb 2009
Colour Name:White|Size Name:12 months
The Aqua Optima jug with the added extras of a 6 pack double life cartridges was the best purchase I have made.
The filter is very easy to use, the jug has a good water capacity, 1 litre, and the fact that the cartridges are double life saves the money. There is a manual dial on the top that you set with the month that you need to change the filter.
Great value filter at an entry level price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great jug. Prefer it over my Brita. 2 Aug 2011
Colour Name:White| Size Name:2 months|Verified Purchase
I have been using filter jugs a few years now and I remember when I was purchasing I could not find good comparative reviews, which is what I will try to do now.
So, I am concurrently using this Aqua Optima jug with a Brita Marella jug, and in the past (while in the US) I had used a PUR filter jug. Therefore I can compare this to the Brita quite effectively, and also compare to my PUR experience.
Of course, I don't have a lab to measure the actual filtration performance and will have to stick to what is perceivable to a regular user.

Review Spoiler: I find it a great jug at an excellent price, better than Brita. Let's do a quick analysis.

-Taste:
This is the most important aspect for me and Aqua Optima does very well, it gives me water that is not far from good spring water. I had a similar experience with PUR filters, while Brita gives me water with a slight yet distinctive taste (which I can recognize in a blind test).

-Filtration speed:
Aqua Optima is the fastest of my jugs, with Brita second and PUR the slowest (especially when the filter is getting old).

-Jug:
It does not look as good as my Brita, but has better functionality (i.e. no problems) and more filtered water capacity for the same size.

-Filter replacement:
Brita has a fancy electronic countdown timer, while this Aqua Optima has a less fancy manual dial where you set the current month to help you remember when to change the filter. I am not crazy about either of these methods since the PUR water filters I used would come with a built in indicator that was dependent of the actual filtered water.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Value but lid not well made 22 May 2009
Colour Name:White|Size Name:12 months
This is a great buy because so many filters are included. The product is good apart from the lid. The clips to keep it secure are easily broken (I was being careful because of a previous review but still managed to break one within minutes of putting it together)and the covered spout does not allow the water to flow well when pouring. If I had the choice I wouldn't buy it again but I am stuck with it for now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little unit 14 April 2011
Colour Name:White|Size Name:2 months
A two month filter is a great boon and make this a must buy. That and the ease of filling with the one way flap on top, certainly one of my best buys. Would say I'd buy again, but given it's life expectancy not sure I'll need to

5.0 out of 5 stars Cost effective, easy to use, great results 25 April 2011
By The Dunelmian VINE VOICE
Colour Name:White| Size Name:2 months|Verified Purchase
Having read many reviews and looked at costs, the best combination appeared to be Amazon and Strix Aqua. We were not disappointed.

As ever the Amazon prices are exceptional, and this water jug does an excellent job, also fitting perfectly into our fridge.

We have not experienced the stability issues mentioned by a minority of reviewers, and the construction of the jug is actually very good. A neat design feature is the counter balanced clear flap on top of the jug which allows easy refilling but prevents dust etc from getting into the filter area.

Of course the water quality is important too. We washed and flushed through the filter carefully as per the instructions and as it uses some charcoal this is clearly required. Once up and running, the water tastes great. Even my wife, a tad sceptical, found the difference remarkable and a huge improvement on our actually quite palatable Thames water.

The filters are not as common as, say, Brita, but with Amazon price and customer service there is no need to look elsewhere.

Top marks to all concerned, and we heartily recommend this to anyone thinking of trying a filter jug.

2.0 out of 5 stars BLUE PARTICLES 20 Feb 2013
Colour Name:White| Size Name:2 months|Verified Purchase
hello

i am not too sure whether it happens to me only or to some other users.
basically, I properly fit the filter into my jug, following the instructions provided.
every time i pour the filtered water from the jug to my own mug, like after 2-3 hours, certain amount of blue particles form/precipitate in the bottom of my mug. I really don't know what they are, and they look horrible. I have bought the jug (and filter) for a week, and this problem keep arising
even if i drink the filtered water immediately after i pour it to my pug, my throat feels irritated, not comfortable at all.

does anyone encounter the same problem? what should i do?

Colour Name:White|Size Name:12 months
I purchased this a month ago and haven't drank or cooked with regular tap water since.

I'm lucky in that my tap water wasn't bad or so I thought - but with chronic health problems I have been trying to eliminate as many additives/chemicals from my diet as possible to give myself a fighting chance of recovery - thought I'd give this a go and I'm SO glad I did.

IT MAKES ORDINARY TAP WATER TASTE AND FEEL LIKE THE PUREST SPRING WATER!
Even my level headed and canny Dad agrees and is going to be buying one very soon (trust me he's nobody's fool)

This deal with the double usage cartidges is excellent - too good to miss.

On opening everything it took me 20 minutes or so of sitting down calmly with the instructions to ensure that I was doing everything correctly - but it all clicked into place in my head and in the jug. Just be careful i.e. don't be forceful when it comes to taking the top part of the jug out to change the cartridge, it fits tightly but can be removed easily if you treat it with care.

NOW THERE'S NO EXCUSE NOT TO GET YOUR 2 LITRES OF WATER PER DAY!!
