BRITA water jugs and cartridges

If you live in an area where you’d rather filter the water, or you simply like to drink water that’s fresher and cleaner, then there’s no better brand than BRITA.

BRITA are well established in the water filtration industry and have been supplying household filtration solutions for the better part of fifty years. They are the go-to people for British families across the land, a trusted brand to provide cleaner drinking water than you may get from a tap. The breadth of BRITA’s range is deceptively large and they have every size of water filtration jug in many different colours along with the necessary cartridges.

Purchasing the initial jug is not that expensive with an Elemaris XL water filter jug holding 3.5 litres being under £15. It also comes with a BRITA meter which allows you to gain an understanding of the water in your area. It will measure hardness and volume, giving you the specific time that will yield the best performance. Initially, this might sound like a lot to go through when drinking water but when you consider that the MAXTRA cartridges that come with it will remove limescale, chlorine and a whole host of other impurities, drinking filtered water like this can really make the difference. Investing in a larger capacity jug can save on the number of times you need to fill it up as well.

Cartridges

Like any physical filter, over time the BRITA filter will become less and less efficient at purifying the water and will eventually need to be replaced. The fortunate thing is that we have a wide range of different filters to suit your pocket. BRITA cartridges are best bought in bulk in order to yield maximum savings. It is always important to understand that different jugs take different filters.

As mentioned above, the Elemaris XL takes MAXTRA cartridges which provide a 4 step filtration process which provides a better degree of limescale removal compared to the BRITA Classic Cartridges. If you have a lot of limescale in your water, then this is a good option. Our homeware stores regularly offer money off when buying the multi packs with 3 BRITA MAXTRA cartridges often coming at less than £10.

The classic filters are great for areas of the country where there are no major issues with water. They will fit a whole host of kettles so you won’t have any problem finding one. They naturally provide filtration that removes limescale and chlorine making them great for the entire family.

Packages

You can of course by very cost effective packages that include filters. The Marella Cool is an annual pack that should keep you with fresh water for the entire year. With 12 cartridges and the jug for £50, this represents excellent value for money. The Marella can process 1.4 litres of filtered water in its slimmed down, fridge door design. Keeping this jug in the fridge is the best way to keep the water fresh and refreshing. The jugs are dishwasher safe, for your convenience.
