As filtered water consumption is increasing, we recommend replacing your MAXTRA+ filter every 4 weeks or 150 litres of water usage. This is based on the average Australian household size of 2.6 people* and consumption of the recommended intake of 8 glasses per day** (based on an average glass size of 240ml).
As a starting point, we’ve developed the table below to help you calculate the recommended filter exchange frequency for your household. Of course, this timing can vary per household depending on your family size and water drinking rates of each person. At a maximum, we recommend to replace it no longer than 8 weeks to maintain optimum filtration results.
Don’t worry if you can’t keep track of when to replace your MAXTRA+ filter, BRITA has specifically designed a filter reminder indicator built into BRITA water jugs to remind you when it’s time to replace your filter.
This is developed to help Australian families make better decisions on when to replace their filter in order to maintain optimal levels of filtration.
