Brita Aluna Water Filter
Advantages: Makes a fantastic cup of filtered tasty clean water, reliable, great features.
Disadvantages: Lid spout is useless feature and having to buy filters every month
After having to endure years of drinking water that tastes like you are drinking a glass full of lime scale and having tried several different filters in the past to no avail I decided to go for a Brita.
The 3.5 litre capacity is enough although you may find yourself filling it up several times as it can take a while for the water to drip through the filter, so you may be better off filling it up and leaving it before making use of it.
The filter features an electronic indicator that I found ineffective to say the least. It's supposed to tell you when to change the filters although I found they could go another week or so before needing changing. I ended up setting up a chart for when it needed changing or if that failed just drinking the water and seeing if it tastes vulgar or not.
One of the most annoying things is it isn't a one off buy. Even after buying the Jug there is further expense in the form of filters. If you are a constant user you may find yourself changing the filters around once every 4-6 weeks which can get expensive considering they are around the price of a Jug for four filters.
The lid has a plastic non drip spout that made the jug drip every time you use it as it is so ineffective. After a while it came off and I haven't bothered to get a replacement for it.
After having this Brita for over a year now I have gained an acquired taste to water. Before buying it I couldn't taste the difference between tap water and bottled. Now I never drink tap water because the Brita is so effective at filtering out all the impurities in tap water that it tastes great.
Summary: Would recommend this to anyone who lives in a hard water area or just wants better quality water.
