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.
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.
Are BRITA jugs dishwasher safe?
All BRITA jugs are dishwasher-safe up to 50 degrees — except for the lid and the filter change indicator. You can wash the lid carefully by hand.
How do I activate or re-set the BRITA smart light?
Press and hold the LED button on top of the lid until you see the light blinking 3 times in green. The BRITA Smart Light is now set and ready to use. The LED button will start flashing yellow during usage if it is time to stock-up with a new cartridge. As soon as it is flashing red, it is time to replace your cartridge.
How can I monitor the status of my filter performance?
You can check the status of your filtration performance any time. Simply press the LED button on top of the lid to see the current filter status.
What do the different colours of the Smart Light system mean?
Green light: MAXTRA+ Universal cartridge filters with optimum performance.
Yellow light: It is nearly time to replace your cartridge, please stock up.
Red light: Please exchange your cartridge. (This will be the case after either 4 weeks or 150L of filtered water)
How long does the filter change indicator last?
Approximately 5 years.
