Care & Maintenance How Do I Clean My Brita Pitcher? Brita Pitchers are very low maintenance when it comes to upkeep and care. Simply hand wash the lid and reservoir with a mild detergent. 

How Long Can I Store Water In My Brita Product ? Store your Brita in a cool, shady place. Don't keep your Brita in bright sunlight, since the bright light and warmth helps algae grow. If you are going to be away for a few days, put your Brita in the refrigerator.

How Do I Assemble My Brita Water Filtration System? Brita Pitcher Filter Systems come pre-assembled. All you do is insert the filter and you're ready to start pouring great-tasting filtered water.

What Are The Black Specks In The Reservoir Of My Brita Pitcher? Seeing carbon particles in the pitcher after several weeks of use is normal with their older filters. Check out their new & improved, Advanced Filter that has no more black flecks in your water here.

How Can I Remove The Algae Film From My Brita Pitcher? Algae are organisms that live in water. Warmth and sunlight contribute to the growth. Public water systems may contain low levels of green algae, especially in warmer climates and in hot weather. The filter may capture some algae; some of the algae also may remain in the water once it has been filtered. If your pitcher is left in a warm or sunny area, algae in the filter or in the filtered water may start to grow. To avoid this growth, it is helpful to keep your pitcher in a cool place that is not in direct sunlight, and replace any filtered water that has been left sitting for several days or more. They also recommend that you change your filter regularly, at 40 gallons (about two months for the average household).

Remove and discard old filter. Clean your Brita system thoroughly using soap and water. Do not clean in Dishwasher. A small amount of unscented household bleach (1 tablespoon in 1 gallon of water soaked for 5 minutes) can also help with the cleaning. Condition and put in a new filter. Always replace filters on a regular basis: every 40 gallons (about 2 months for the average household). Use your Brita Water Filtration System as you normally do, and refill the unit every day or two. It is also a good idea to thoroughly hand-wash the pitcher on a weekly basis. These steps will minimize the chance for algae growth. Store your Brita Water Filtration System in a cool, shady place. Don't keep your Brita system in bright sunlight, since the bright light and warmth helps algae grow. If you are going to be away for a few days, put your Brita system in the refrigerator.

Transforming ordinary tap water into healthier, great-tasting water A tall glass of water can help you feel better and stay healthier. At Brita, they believe it should taste good, too. That's why their filters are designed to reduce the common impurity Chlorine, found in tap water. Use Brita filtered water for cooking, coffee, tea, plants and even for your thirsty pets!

Better for your wallet — and for the environment Over the course of a year, the average Brita pitcher filters 240 gallons of water — or about the same as 1800 standard 16.9-ounce plastic bottles. And one filter can replace 300 bottles of water and save over $600 a year. They believe that a few simple steps — like filtering your water and reducing plastic waste — can create a big impact when everyone does them together.

Raising awareness bottle by bottle In 2007, Brita joined forces with Nalgene to create the FilterForGood program, which encourages consumers to reduce plastic waste by pledging to refill reusable bottles with filtered water. Along the way, they've picked up an amazing and diverse roster of partners such as The Sundance Film Festival, NBC's The Biggest Loser, and Surf rider. Since Brita started, consumers from around the world have pledged to save over 260 million plastic bottles — and counting.

Brita history So how did an idea from a small town in Germany become an international success? It all started in 1966, when West German entrepreneur Heinz Hankammer set out to fulfill his vision of optimizing normal tap water. He began production under a pear tree in the family's garden, affectionately naming the company after his daughter, Brita. More than 45 years later, Brita is now considered a world market leader of home water filtration products.
