Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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.See all Product Description

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.
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).
Aqua Optima is the fastest of my jugs, with Brita second and PUR the slowest (especially when the filter is getting old).
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
Aqua Optima water tastes better than Brita, and it doesn't have black bits from the cartridge floating in the water, which you get with Brita. Aqua Optima cartridges are also cheaper than Brita.
