Brita Marella Water Filter Jugs Review

Brita Marella Water Filter

Brita Marella Water Filter Jugs are designed to filter tap water and reduce Chloride, limescale and some metals (lead and copper) in regular tap water.

Brita jugs do it by means of its “Maxtra+” named activated carbon filter. Jug have a “Memo” on lid that shows you percentage of filter usage and informs you to replace filter. You must change Maxtra+ filter cartridges every 4-weeks.

Brita Marella claims that, it converts regular tap water to great tasting water. But I’m not agree about the taste. Taste of filtered water is very near to regular tap water. Certainly not like a spring water. But it definately reduces limescale in water. You may see it from kettle and iron. Almost no limescale after Brita Marella usage. That might prolong the life of appliances. I should also notice that tea and coffee gets softened after Brita.

Brita Marella Memo on Lid

Jug have a “Memo” on lid that shows you percentage of filter usage and informs you to replace filter cartridges.

Brita Marella XL has 3.5 Liter capacity, but that doesn’t meant you will produce 3.5 Liter water each time you fill it. In each full tap water fill you get around 1.5-2.0 Liter of filtered water that’s produced in 4-5 minutes.

Jug can be cleaned in dishwasher (except for lid).

UPDATE: After using 3 weeks, I see that limescale decreased visibly but not fully. Little amount of limescale is seen in the kettle, but not much. That much of limescale is fine for me.

Brita Marella Water Filter Review Verdict

Brita Marella Water Filter Jugs are cheap and easy to use water filters. Tap water taste doesn’t change much but limescale filtration works great good. That might prolongs the life of appliances. Reduction of chloride and other metals are also another bonus too.
