Good Tasting and Pricing,
This review is from: Aqua Optima Evolve 60-Day Water Filter 6 pack - 1 year's supply. Also fits Brita* Maxtra* (Kitchen & Home)I brought these when they were selling for 12 pounds for 6 pack of 60 days filter from amazon directly including free delivery. Very good pricing considering they not only cheaper but double the lifetime of 60 days compared to the normal 30 ones.
I own and have been using both Brita and Aqua filter and jugs in the past. In terms of water quality, I do not see much difference between these aqua evolve compared with Brita Maxtra or the old style aqua filters. Very nice tasting water, which is exactly what I wanted. Also I use filtered water to pour into my kettle for boiling. This helped in preventing lime scale build up a lot.
In terms of fitting, these Aqua Evolve have 3 filter holes in the bottom to acclerate water passage. Much quicker filtering compared to the Brita Maxtra or the old style Aqua filters.
I have tried to use these Aqua Evolve filters to fit into both Brita and Aqua filter jugs.
When fitted into the Brita jugs, it fits alright, unlikely some other reviewers, I cannot detect any leakage of water bypassing the filter.
When the Aqua Evolve is being fitted to the normal Aqua jugs, however, I have noitced a small leak on the side by passing the filter. It does not really affect the water quality, as the quantity is very small.
It's just a bit annoying considering Aqua have launched a product that filts their competitor's (Brita) jug better (as far I as can tell, without leakage). However, when the same filter is being fitted to their own jug, it produce a minor leak.'
Overall, very good pricing filters that can potentially fit both Brita and Aqua jug designs.
Good quality water, indistinguishable from Brita Maxtra or normal Aqua filters.
Good fit for Brita, small leak when fitted to Aqua jugs.
