Brita Flow Water Filter Tank

Brita Flow Water Tank is designed to filter tap water into quality drinking water. There are many similar filter jugs, like Brita Marella, Aluna or Aquaphor Amethyst. But Brita flow is different! It has a huge water tank capacity. That capacity makes it ideal for large families and small businesses.

Design

Brita flow is made up of quality polycarbonate plastic. It really gives confidence. In contrast to other similar water filters, it does not have a cylindrical shape. it is pretty rectangular. Reason is simple: its aim is not for easy carrying but storing high amount of water. It is actually a quality water dispenser with water filtration features.

Due to huge size, you can not store it at fridge door, but you can store on fridge shelf easily. By that way, you can get high amount of cold water any time you want. If you don’t have or don’t want to consume that much of space in your fridge, Brita cool is not for you. Brita Aluna might be a better choice in that case.

Brita Cool consist of two parts. Upper unfiltered tap water tank (around 3 L) and bottom filtered water tank (around 5.2 L). As you fill upper tank, water starts to go into water filter (by gravity) and you get quality drinking water at the bottom tank. That much easy!

By the way, it has an extremely easy to use sliding water refill method.

Capacity

In contrast to similar water filter jugs, Brita Cool has huge water capacity. Brita Cool has 8.2 L water capacity, which is fairly enough for big families and small business. It has 8.2L total capacity, but this does not means you fill tank and immediately you will get this capacity.

Brita Cool has two parts. Upper part (around 3L) is used to store unfiltered water. When you fill this part with tap water, immediately filtration begins and lower part (around 5.2L) starts to be filled with purified water. Notice that, you must refill upper part twice to completely fill lower part with filtered water.

Fortunately, filtration rate is acceptable. When you fill upper part for 3 times, in a few minutes, you will get continuous 8.2L clean water for your daily needs.

Cartridge Compatibility

Brita Flow comes with single Brita Maxtra+ water filter cartridge. Maxtra+ filter is compatible with most recent Brita filter jugs. For a long time, we have been using water filter jugs and tried many Brita alternative filters, like BWT and Aquaphor Maxfor+. We prefer BWT magnesium filters for better water taste. In general, all that filters are compatible with each other. But this is not the case for Brita Flow! We tried to use BWT filter with Brita Flow but it did not fit! I’m very surprised actually. On the other hand, Brita Maxtra+ filters are perfect filters. We will use maxtra+ filters happily, but if you are planning to buy Brita Flow and use BWT filters with it, keep in mind that they are not compatible!

Brita Flow Review Summary

Brita flow water tank filter is fairly different than regular water filter jugs in terms of shape and capacity. Regular water filter jugs (like Brita Marella, Aluna or Aquaphor) are more mobile. But you can take and put Brita Flow under faucet to refill, although not as easy as regular jugs.

On the other hand, Brita Flow’s capacity is huge! You can filter and store much more water than other classical water filter jugs. This is definitely big plus for large families and small offices.

It is perfect alternative to plastic bottled water. More eco-friendly and much cheaper that bottled water.

Brita Cool perfectly fits to fridge shelf and you can use it as a cold water dispenser with high capacity.

In summary, If you need high water storage capacity, Brita Flow is perfect choice for you. But mobility is more important for you, regular water filter jugs are better choice.
