Improves the quality of your water and your life,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BRITA Marella Cool Water Filter Jug, 2.4 L - White (Kitchen & Home)
After looking at a cup of tea I'd made which had a slight film on the top, I decided that I'd had enough of drinking and making tea & coffee with hard water and looked to amazon for a reasonably priced water filter. After looking at a few products, I decided that this was the size I wanted and, more importantly, the amount of money I wanted to spend.
A day later, my Brita Marella Cool White Water Filter Jug was in my hands. After a quick and easy assembly of all the parts (and a quick wash, naturally) it was ready to use and looking very smart. I took a glass of water from it and I was immediately impressed by just how clean tasting the water was - it was difficult to believe that the water I was drinking had come from my South London tap.
It also passed the tea and coffee test with flying colours. The taste of my freshly brewed coffee really comes through when it isn't fighting the impurities of hard water. For the very reasonable price of this water filter, the improvement in the quality of your water - and subsequently your life - is very noticable.
For those thinking of getting a water filter and worried about the running costs, it apparently gets through one cartridge a month on average and I bought myself a pack of three cartridges to go with this from amazon for just over the £10 mark. They are also available at all leading supermarkets, so you don't have to go hunting around specialist stores to keep your water filter going.
If you have noticably impure water, I would strongly recommend you invest in one of these handy little jugs. It fits right on my fridge door and, to be honest, I don't know why I waited this long to get one. Go on, treat yourself, you deserve great, clean tasting water.

If I remember rightly (and it's been a while since I got this jug - I've since replaced it with another Brita model), it did come with a filter. I wouldn't like to guarantee that it still does now, though.

Actually there is. If you do some research you will see exactly what is in our water and what we are ignorantly drinking...

Which model do you have now?
I am looking into getting something like this as my tap water tastes metallic. Cost isn't that much of an issue but £30 or less would be nice.

I still own one of these, although have to confess to having to replace it after my stepson put my original on our ceramic hob and managed to accidentally knock the dial, turning the hotplate under the jug on. It's tough, but it doesn't stand up to that sort of treatment! Thankfully it was noticed before too much damage was done, but I didn't hesitate to buy exactly the same jug to replace the original.

It says you need to replace the cartridge monthly, on average how many jugfuls can you filter with one cartridge?

I stretch mine out a little longer than that (about 45 days of daily use), with no discernible difference in quality. I'd say at least 50 jug-fulls, based on when the "impurity" film starts to appear on cups of tea.
That's just my opinion, others may disagree - I know that Brita themselves probably would!
