Although tap water in the UK is perfectly safe, it doesnt always taste, look or smell as pleasant as wed like. Chlorine can produce a smell reminiscent of swimming pool water, and the effect can be noticeable not only in drinking water but in hot drinks and food cooked in water. Limescale (temporary hardness) present in hard water can impair the taste of tea and coffee and leave an oily film on the surface, as well as causing scale build up in appliances. Metals such as lead and copper, can also affect the taste of water. BRITA filters reduce these impurities, improving the taste, smell and appearance to give a more enjoyable drinking experience.
BRITA cartridges allow you to benefit from cleaner, clearer, great tasting hot and cold drinks.
Hard water affects many parts of the UK reducing the quality, taste and appearance of our tea and coffee. As limescale is present in drinking water, it can build up in our appliances and also cause an oily film to appear on the top of your cup of tea. A BRITA jug or water filter kettle will reduce these impurities giving you cleaner, clearer, great tasting tea and less de-scaling or replacing of your kettle.
Each MAXTRA cartridge delivers up to 150 litres of great tasting BRITA filtered water, so at only 4p per litre its great value for money!
