The new and improved BRITA filters offer more efficient water filtration than ever before. Enhanced filter composition and new filtration technology ensure better capture of chlorine and other substances that adversely affect the taste of water. The reduction of scale and heavy metals is still at a high level, helping prolong the life of household appliances. 1 liter of water can be filtered within a minute, so you don't need to wait too long for a glass of clean water. The package contains 2 new-generation filter cartridges. With the new filter, you get even better water quality without having to invest in a new filtration kettle.
The innovated Brit MaxtraPlus filter cartridges have a new shape that makes installation and replacement easier. The composition of the filter mixture was also improved. As the name of the technology suggests, the filter consists of Micro Carbon Pearls, which are made out of coconut shells. The micro size of the active particles allows the amount of filtration mixture to be increased. More particles also means more micro pores that capture unwanted substances, which in turn results in greater water filtration efficiency. When removing chlorine and other substances that negatively affect the taste and scent of water, the new generation filter is 25% more efficient than its predecessor. Reduction of water hardness, limescale and heavy metals has stayed at a high level.
Pre-filtering of water to capture organic impurities and rust takes place immediately after the water has been poured into the kettle. A finer strainer was used at the top of the filter to prevent the trapped particles from being released into the filtered water. After that, the water comes into contact with the filter mixture, which is made of resin and silver-plated carbon (both filters passed through food industry tests). The resin reduces the hardness of the water, and thus the amount of scale, and also reduces the content of heavy metals that may occur in the water pipe. At the same time, it retains magnesium and calcium in the water. When water comes into contact with active carbon microparticles, the content of substances that adversely affect the taste and scent of water such as chlorine and its compounds or pesticides is reduced. Silver carbonation prevents reproduction of undesirable bacteria. The underside of the filter was equipped with a finer grid that provides final filtration. No particles of the filter mixture will get through the special filter.
BRITA Home Filters are designed for treatment of drinking water, and their purpose is to increase its quality and improve its taste. However, please note that they do not transform tainted water into drinking water. The Brita MaxtraPlus filter body is made of plastic that does not contain harmful compounds and is designed for permanent contact with water. Water filtration is provided only by natural substances - resins and silver-plated active carbon made from coconut shells. BRITA filters are fully recyclable so the used filter cartridges can be returned to distributors. BRITA then carries out their recycling.
With BRITA MaxtraPlus filters, you can convert even the worst-quality tap water into pure and tasty goodness. The filters significantly reduce the content of substances that negatively affect the taste and scent of water. These are heavy metals coming from water pipes (lead, copper, aluminum), foul-tasting and smelling chlorine and its compounds. Filters also greatly reduce the hardness of the water, and thus help combat limescale. The softer the water, the greater the ability to dissolve the aromatic substances, so beverages prepared from the filtered water have a more pronounced and better taste and aroma. Filtered water is also great for cooking and steaming, food will keep its colour and smell better and maintain a better structure. When cooking cabbage and fish dishes, their undesired smell is lost. Decreasing the amount of scale will also be beneficial for the lifespan of your household appliances, especially those that serve to heat water. Soft water will also please your house plants. After watering them with filtered water, they will surely reward you with lush growth.
