What are the benefits of BRITA filtered water?
BRITA is renowned for its expertise in the field of drinking water optimisation and filtration for over 50 years.
New Zealand household mains water is strictly controlled but it can contain chlorine, metals and carbonate hardness (limescale) which can impair taste, odour and appearance of water. A BRITA water filter provides an easy but highly effective way to provide you and your family with great tasting filtered water by:
Reducing free and bound chlorine content (if present).
Reducing carbonate hardness (calcium and magnesium ions) in the mains water (if present). In other words, it acts as a “water softener” which is particularly important in parts of New Zealand where hard water is present.
Reducing metals such as lead and copper in the mains water which can be increased by corresponding domestic installations.
How often should I replace the MAXTRA+ filter?
For optimum performance, we recommend replacing your MAXTRA+ filter every 150L or 4 weeks based on average household size drinking 8 glasses per day.
What is the best way to store BRITA filtered water?
You should ideally store your jug with BRITA filtered water in a cool place, e.g. in the fridge. You should also avoid direct sunlight and use the water within one to two days.

How do I activate the filter change indicator on the jug?
Simply press and hold down the start button on the lid until all four bars appear in the display and flash twice.
How can I monitor the status of my filter performance?
