Brita seems to be encouraging us to throw away our old filter jugs!
on 21 October 2013
We have had a Brita filter jug for many years. The classic cartridges seem to be getting less commonly available and the price has risen quite sharply in recent years when buying them at a supermarket. It would appear that there is some move to try and persuade people to throw away the old jugs and buy a new one that takes MAXTRA system. Whilst the new ones may have some advantages, one would be hard pressed to really notice them, all have some limitations. Certainly in a soft water area such as where I live and the fairly small amount of cold filtered water I need, the difference seems to be not worth the outlay and best advice is to replace regularly.. It was good to see that a pack of 6 'classic' type can still be obtained at a fairly reasonable price.
