Brita Aqua Fountain Water Filter Chiller - Stainless Steel with blue illumination.

Reducing it to just £37.99

I bought one in the summer and love it, so bought another today as an xmas pressie for a 'hard to buy for' relative!

The 6 pack of cartridges is only £15.99
- jandcpoole

The £37.99 price is slightly misleading:

il clarify the maths

£65.98 + £15.99 = £81.97
then £81.97 - £27.99 = £53.98

(that is six filters and the cooler)
just thought id clarify this because i was actually going to visit my argis with just £40 in my pocket - assuming it was £37.99

I had one of these before we got a fridge/freezer with chilled water on tap. I have read the review posted but I have to say that I really liked it especially as my old fridge wasn't big enough to fit a normal britta jug inside. I found it chilled the water really well. We never changed the filter as often as they suggested to save money. I especially liked the fact that the children helped themselves to water frequently. The downsides were that it was a little noisy and it tended to get condensation on the inside of the water holder which stopped it looking so nice.

Great price so I'm voting hot!

How do you get water into this? I mean, is it plumbed into the mains of do you simply top it up?

I have never used one before but judging by the fact capacities are quoted it must be topuppable :thumbsup: they wouldnt include a capacity or talk about the larger filters either :)

Hi, Nearly bought on as well, so thanks for the link to the review.:thumbsup:

Just checked and they have brought a new one out.
#7
I've had two of these and although the price is excellent, I am not tempted to buy another.

The first just stopped working after 13 months. I've read reviews it seems it is quite common for them to pack up just after the warranty ends.

I was a bit naughty and used the warranty on one I had bought my sister as a present and got a replacement.

The replacement stopped working after 2 months.

It is a great idea and looks good, but I now just fill a couple of bottles with a normal brita jug and put them in the fridge.

Seems like a bargain to me,
I've bought one with the filters
Cannot go far wrong for £53.98
HOT
Thanks

Excellent price, shocking product. We took it back after a couple of months, it takes ages to cool water, it dribbles out, it doesn't cool enough water, it blocks, I could go on.......

No its a separete unit you top it up with tap water on the top and it filters and cools the water for you by the mains

I love gadgets and I loved the look of this, I was so disappointed it had to go back. So instead I bought a £60 colour changing water filtering kettle, i've had that 2 weeks and it's going back tomorrow coz the lid doesn't stay shut. The 3 year old £10 kettle is back out still going strong, mocking the expensive failures.....

Hi
Thanks for the link,great review! If your fridge is big enough,I suggest getting a Brita Waterfilter jug and just put it in your fridge. The water is nice and cold,and I just top it up when ever I take a drink. Well,I should say whenever my OH takes a drink. I have 2. Hers is in the fridge for the cold water,and I keep mine on the window ledge,as I like it at room temp. No freezing belly first thing in the morning when you take a drink. Also,the filter lasts 1 month at the manufacturers recommendation,you can easily use it for 2 months,as I find that it still does a good job,although you can definitely taste the difference with a new filter :)

Tried to buy this today at Leeds Crown Point and they refused to honour the deal and denied it was available. Tried to charge me the full price, so they kept it !!!!
#17
I had a bit of bother getting hold of mine. Store till wouldn't bring the price up correctly (£67 something or other). Only after I showed them the email confirmation did they put it through the till.
#18
Success! Went to Robin Retail Park, Wigan and got the filter and carts for £53. Strange thing was, the cooler came up at £60 odd, the filters at £15.99, but then most bizzare, added it up to OVER 100 POUNDS!!! The checkout girl didn`t want to know when i said it should be £53 all in, even when i showed her the reservation. Only when i asked her to use a calculator did she accept the till was ADDING £27 not taking it way! In the end the manager came over and he couldnt believe it either, so gave it to me for the price stated online.
Plugged it in and it works a treat. Thanks all.

You should have ordered the stainless steel one (NOT the white one) with the cartridges. It works then ;-)
Looks like a glitch with their system.
#20
TO all - I thought this looked a great deal - and yes on line Argos did show the correct price for me anyway

HOWEVER - I advise those thinking of buying to look at the reviews of this item as there APPEARS to be a lot of faults with this item:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Brita-Fountain-Water-Filter-Chiller/dp/customer-reviews/B000GJI1O2/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&customer-reviews.start=1&qid=1197225475&sr=8-1#customerReviews

This has put me off - any comments?
#21
Mine has been fine except for a very occaisonal problem when the thermostat goes a bit loopy and turns on and off constantly.

It looks very cool though.

I'd certainly recommend it.
#22
picked mine up today
looks and tastes great
although mine came up on till at £80 (something)
and was the stainless steel one
told customer services
they checked it online and got manager to over ride the system
so got the water fountain and 6 extra filters for ariound £53
BARGAIN
thanks op heat added
#23
I've never read such bad reviews on a product. I'm tempted to return mine unopened under the 30 day money back guarantee.
Hundreds of people can't be wrong surely?

may be worth taking out the 3 year warranty (instant replacement)
as its only about £13

Yeah mine came up wrong at first, girl checked website and i showed her how to get it to £54 and then she just overrode the till, bargain.

Bigs thanks to OP.
#26
I've had this running for a couple of days now, and it is perfect. Takes about 90mins to chill a full tank, and does not leak. The instrucions are worth following though. The many reports of leaks are probably people who have not bothered to expel all air from the machine. Pleased so far.
#27
I was expecting something to happen :(
It transpires that you have to have a glass permanently placed under the dispenser as it drips. How can something so promising have so many drawbacks for so many people? Damn. I'll live with this, if anything else goes wrong, it goes back. No hesitation.
