How Brita Filters WorkGreat-tasting Brita water begins with Brita filters. The Brita filter's activated carbon and ion exchange resin work together to filter your water so you are left with healthier, great-tasting drinking water. For Brita Faucet Filters, the process is just as simple. When you turn on your faucet, water first passes through stage 1: A non-woven screen around the filter to trap sediment. Then the water flows through stage 2: A compressed block of carbon and zeolite, reducing Chlorine (taste and odor) and Lead.

  • Great-tasting drinking water at a fraction of the cost of bottled water.
  • The Brita Filter keeps a healthy level of fluoride, a water additive that promotes strong teeth (applies to fluoridated municipal tap water).
  • Replace filter every 2 months or 40 gallons.

The Brita Faucet Replacement Filter reduces the following harmful contaminants that may be in your tap water.

Heavy metals Lead
Taste and odor Chlorine
Disinfection by-products Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs)
Particulates Particulate Turbidity

Why Use a Brita Water Filter?

  • Great-tasting water makes it easier to get your daily doseWhen you drink water regularly, you feel better and more energized. So shouldn't the water you drink taste as good as it feels? That's where Brita comes in. It transforms tap water into healthier, great-tasting drinking water. And the better water tastes, the more you will drink. You don't have to be a connoisseur to taste the difference Brita makes:
    • Improves a cup of coffee, tea, ice cubes, frozen juices and powdered drinks
    • Great for preparing cooked foods and mixing infant formula
  • What Brita filtration systems reduce from tap waterThe quality of U.S. and Canadian tap water is generally quite good. However, some municipalities introduce chlorine as a disinfectant and lead can leach out of household plumbing. Brita water filtration systems reduce several common impurities:
    • Pitchers and Dispensers: Reduce Chlorine (taste and odor), Copper, and Mercury — all of which may be found in tap water.
    • Faucet Filtration Systems: Reduce Lead, TTHM, VOCs, lindane (pesticide), 2,4-D, alachlor, atrazine (herbicide), Chlorine (taste and odor) and sediment
  • It's an easy way to help your community and the worldIn spite of having easy access to clean water, the United States is a huge consumer of bottled water. In 2008, the U.S. used enough plastic water bottles to stretch around the earth more than 190 times. It takes 2,000 times more energy to produce a bottle of water than it does to produce tap water. 69% of bottled water containers end up in the trash and not in a recycling container.
  • Brita makes it easier to reduce bottled water waste, save money and go greenOne Brita pitcher filter can effectively replace as many as 300 standard 16.9-ounce bottles. So you can get great-tasting water without so much waste. For about $10 each, you can purchase a 16-ounce or 32-ounce Nalgene bottle, saving you hundreds of dollars a year on bottled water. Plus, one bottle can last for years.

Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat Is The Shelf Life Of The Brita Filter?The shelf life of an unused, packaged filter is indefinite. Filters should be kept in the sealed Brita bag and stored in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use them.

How Do I Attach My Brita Faucet Filtration System?Determine if your faucet has threads on the outside or inside. If on the outside, you probably do not need to use an adapter. The base system can most likely be attached directly to the faucet (consult user guides). Pick up the base unit, align with the faucet threads and carefully attempt to connect the system to the faucet. If the threads are on the outside, but you can’t get the collar onto the faucet, you may need a special adapter. To receive a special adapter free of charge, call 1-800-24-BRITA or 1-800-387-6940 (CANADA). If the faucet has inside threads, try using one of the two adapters that come with the system, and attach the base system to the adapter. If neither one of the adapters provided will attach to the faucet, you may need a special adapter. To receive a special adapter free of charge, call 1-800-24-BRITA or 1-800-387-6940 (CANADA).

How Do I Prepare The Filter In My Brita Faucet Filter System?Brita Faucet Filter Systems don’t require soaking.

  • Run water through the system for 5 minutes to flush out the system, activate the filter media and remove any carbon dust.
  • The 100-gallon filter life† begins AFTER flushing for five minutes so you are not wasting filter life by the flushing process.
  • Water saving tip: Contain the water during the flushing process and use on household plants so the water isn’t wasted.

How Do I Change My Brita Faucet Mount Filter?

  • Press the filter cartridge release button located at the back of the filter cup and pull cartridge up to remove it
  • Align the insert groove on the lower part of the cartridge with the Filter Replacement Indicator at the front of the filter cup
  • Insert the filter cartridge into the filter cup until a “click” is heard
  • Turn on the faucet to flush the new filter for 5 minutes to remove any carbon dust and activate the filter

How Often Should I Change My Brita Filter?For optimum performance, it’s important to change your Brita filter on a regular basis. Fortunately, Brita replacement filters are inexpensive.

Transforming ordinary tap water into healthier, great-tasting waterA 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 environmentOver 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 bottleIn 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 historySo 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.
