The Improvements From The Old One:

  • The top actually sits down inside the pitcher so it stays in place; the old one did not.
  • The top is separate from the handle; the old one was part of the handle. (This is a significant improvement as the old one always felt like it was going to break at any time when pouring from it.)
  • The new one has a label to mark when to replace the filter; the old one had a mechanism that flashed red, yellow, or red to indicate when to replace the filter. ( This was fine if it worked, but it didn’t always work correctly, and it was difficult to reset it properly with no way of knowing if it was working.)

  • Find a clean boiling pot or a clear coffee pot to fill enough tap water so the water level will engulf the new filter.
  • Make sure u can place and retrieve the filter quite smoothly into the water without tilting or disturbing the water and filter.
  • Let it sit for 15 minutes then remove it slowly, the same way u placed it inside.
  • Place the filter into the Brita pitcher all the way down—the 2 notches should firmly sit flatly on the bottom of the orifice. (Do a dry practice in placing the filter inside) that eliminates the guesswork afterward.
  • After fitting the filter correctly; softly turn on the water and fill the inside (not on filter) top container. The water will filter through and fill the clear bottom of the container.
  • Repeat the process until the bottom is 5/8 full. Do not add more water.

If you FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS, you won’t have problems!


  • If you can’t afford a whole-house filtering system or under the sink, get a Brita pitcher and your water will be safe to drink!
  • That really allowed us to see the difference between filtered water and tap water so I can honestly say this does taste much better.
  • This Brita pitcher replaced a smaller one I had for quite a few years.

Warm Tips:

  • There is one thing you need to beware of. The plastic top ‘snaps down’ in place. Sometimes it can come loose, and then a flood of water will pour out of the top, and over everything. To stop this from happening, I always put pressure on the top with one hand, when I am pouring water.
  • When it is full it is very heavy to lift with one hand.
