There is nothing more satisfying than a cold drink of water. We spend the summers at the campground and it seems like I’m always filling up a water bottle for my children or myself. At home we drink tap water but for my children it’s never cold enough and they say that the water at the campground tastes different than the “good stuff” at home, so we always try to keep a jug of cold water in the fridge for them! The “Brita Grand Water Filter Pitcher” is perfect for our family.
“Brita Grand Water Filter Pitcher – 10 cup” is the perfect water pitcher for our family of four. We are on our own well and are accustomed to water without any of the chlorine taste that is often found in tap water. Last year, we purchased a smaller Brita water filter and loved how it worked for us at the campground, but found that it didn’t hold quite enough water for our family. The “Brita Grand Water Filter Pitcher” holds 10 cups of water making it perfect for placing on the table at meal times! There is enough water for everyone to have a glass without having to get up and refill it.
The filter is easy to insert. First you need to flush the filter under cold water for 15 seconds, then simply drop it in the reservoir. You will need to discard your first three pictures of filtered watered as they may contain carbon dust. In an effort to be environmentally friendly they suggest using it to water your plants, which is exactly what we did!
The picture has a Filter Change Indicator that will tell you when to change your filter. It does contain a non-replaceable sealed batter and the instructions says that after several years the indicator will stop working but the picture is still functional, you will just need to remember on your own when it’s time to change the filter. I love that the pitchers comes apart for easy cleaning. It is not dishwasher safe, so you will have to hand-wash it.
The lid flips open so that it’s easy to refill your pitcher. Initially I filled this twice to get my full 10 cups into the pitcher. Be sure to read the instructions that come with your “Brita Grand Water Filter Pitcher”. They give you some great tips on how to use your pitcher to get great-tasting water every time.
The handle is quite comfortable to hold, but when the pitcher is full of water I do find it quite heavy. The pouring spout works nicely with no dripping. Just be sure to let the reservoir empty completely before you pour or you will get some spillage! It also comes in a variety of colours so you can choose the one that suits your decorating style best!
The “Brita Grand Water Filter Pitcher” is a great addition to any home. The documentation says one water filter can replace up to 300 standard 500 millilitre plastic water bottles! This is amazing! It cuts down on waste and saves you money. With the “Brita Grand Water Filter Pitcher” you will get great tasting water every time!
