Brita Maxtra Filter Cartridges x 3
Advantages: Great tasting water, clean and pure
Disadvantages: Can seem expensive at the time of purchasing
One of the very useful wedding presents we received several years ago was a Brita Water Filter Jug, which we make use of on a daily basis. The jug that we own actually gives us an indicator of when we need to change the filter to ensure we are getting the best tasting, cleanest and purest water, and it ends up that we need to change the filter every four weeks or so.
The filters that are required for our particular Brita jug are the maxtra cartridges which are slightly more expensive than the normal brita filter cartridges. I often buy this 3 pack which recently cost me £9 in Tesco, but I have in the past bought the pack of 4 maxtra cartridges from amazon, especially when they are a good price.
These maxtra cartridges are essential if you want to have the clean, clear water that you probably purchased the jug for. These cartridges are meant to reduce limescale, chlorine as well as other impurities to ensure you are getting the best filtered water. They also claim to produce great tasting water, much nice than that from the tap, as welllas making your hot beverages such as tea or coffee taste even better. In terms of being economic, I do find them to be an expensive purchase at the time, but when you weigh up the cost of buying bottled water as part of your weekly shop, and then a buying a pack of three of these which will last you around 3 months, there probably isn't a lot of difference, and in fact, when it comes down to it, this is probably still cheaper. Brita also suggests that you use their filtered water to cook your food in, and I have to say that I do always use it when cooking vegetables, although boiling the water will remove the impurities anyway. Another claim of Brita is that it prolongs the life of your domestic appliances by 'preventing limescale build up' which I woul have to say there is probably some truth in.
When the maxtra cartridge has reached its monthly usage, we clean out the jug and replace the filter, which is very easy to do. Each filter comes individually wrapped in the box.
Despite it seeming to be a costly expenditure at the time, when we have to use tap water to drink on the odd occasion, you really do notice a huge difference in the taste, and it is then that we are very glad that we use these maxtra filter cartridges to ensure we have the nicer tasting water. With all the health worries and claims that surround us nowadays, and the truth that you really don't know what is in the water in your area at times, it is reassuring and worth paying the money to know that you are giving your family and yourself the best water around, filtered, clean and clear, by using these maxtra cartridges.
Summary: A great way of ensuring you are drinking clean pure water
