Good Morning, The Maxtra+ cartridges that are used with the Aluna jug can reduce Chlorine by up to 85% and Limescale by up to 75%. Kind Regards, BRITACare
Hi Emmaj ,
The filters for the Brita Aluna Water Filter Jug - Cool White reduces chlorine and limescale in the filtered water.
Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
Yes, owned brita aluna filter jug for ages. My kettles element is not furred up, and my drinks taste better too.
Good Afternoon, In order to fill the Aluna jug the lid does need to be removed. We have other jugs that have a filling hole in the top of the lid, these are called Style, Elemaris and Marella. Kind Regards, BRITACare
I have looked in to this for you. The lid needs to be removed to fill the jug.
Thanks for using Argos Q&A :)
Good Afternoon, BRITA jug filters are designed to reduce levels of temporary hardness (alkalinity) in water; these are the minerals that precipitate out of the water on boiling, leaving scale in kettles and causing scum to form on tea. In this way the BRITA filter will remove only some of the calcium from the water; it does not remove the calcium salts of chloride and sulphate present in the permanent water hardness. Even if all the calcium remained in the water, it has been demonstrated that drinking water cannot play a significant role in the calcium component of a diet.
The reduction in calcium caused by a BRITA filter varies over the life of a cartridge and is dependant upon the level of calcium in the water being filtered. On average the reduction represents between 5 and 10% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for calcium, which is equivalent to less than ⅓ cup of milk. Therefore the impact of filtering on the total dietary intake of calcium may be considered insignificant.
Kind Regards, BRITACare
Thank you for your email.
BRITA offers products using both activated carbon (such as the MicroDisc for our filter bottles) to optimize the taste of cold drinks as well as water filters with ion exchangers and activated carbon (such as our jug and tap cartridges) that optimize tap water for the preparation of hot and cold beverages and foods.
The ion exchanger reduces limescale and heavy metals, such as copper and lead, which might be present in the household piping system. When prepared with BRITA-filtered water, hot drinks, such as tea, develop their full aroma and kitchen appliances, which heat water, do not scale up as quickly when they are used with filtered water. The activated carbon reduces substances like chlorine and chlorine compounds which can impair the taste and smell of the tap water.
Micro plastics are a rather new phenomenon. Therefore, no test standards have been developed by the normative bodies so far and hence BRITA has not tested its products for the reduction of micro plastics.
Whilst there is still some contention over their size, at present the U.S. National Oceanic &
Atmospheric Administration have classified them as being anything under 5 mm (5000 microns).
Our range of BRITA filters are able to reduce particles found in tap water as follows:
Maxtra+ Coarse particles of about of about nominal 200 microns (0.2 mm)
MicroDisc Particles of 30 microns (0.03 mm)
P1000 tap cartridge Particles of nominal 100 microns (0.1 mm)
P3000 tap cartridge Particles of nominal 100 microns (0.1 mm)
A1000 tap cartridge Particles of 0.5 microns (0.0005 mm)
On Tap Cartridge Particles of nominal 2 microns (0.002 mm)
On Tap Cartridge (With hollow fibre membrane) Particles of nominal 1 microns
To help put microns in perspective: Blood cells are around 7-20 microns and the average human hair has a diameter of around 50-70 microns. Most humans cannot see anything smaller than 40 microns with the unaided eye.
BRITA water filters are not designed to make water from sources that are dubious in hygienic terms suitable for drinking. The only water that should be filtered is tap water supplied by the water authorities, as such water must comply with the strict drinking water quality standards.
Taken from QUORA
The common definition of a “microplastic” is any synthetic fragment under 5 millimeters in length. That is 5000 microns. Common single point or whole house filters remove particles down to 5 to 20 microns (they state what they are capable of doing). Brita filters state design down to 1 micron.
So the answer is yes, providing you understand that there is no stated lower limit to microplastic size when it is no longer included as a ‘piece’.
Definite improvement in less build up in kettle after using filtered water
Please email this enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to send you statements regarding this.
No doesn't it only removes some of the chemical from tap water.
Hi, the BRITA filter reduces heavy metals such as lead and copper and while we don't know what levels of hormones are present in tap water it is likely that they will also reduce this too. Kind regards, BRITACare
Dear Customer, the dark residue is likely to be carbon dust. Full preparation of the cartridge before use is crucial to eradicate the loose carbon dust. To do this:
1. Remove packaging from cartridge.
2. Fill basin/sink with cold water.
3. Immerse cartridge under water and vigorously shake from side to side for 10 seconds.
(you will notice small bubbles rising to the surface of the water from the cartridge).
4. When the bubbles have stopped, remove the cartridge from basin/jug and place in the system.
5. Filter 2 - 3 batches of water through the system to remove any carbon dust from the cartridge (carbon dust can become dislodged during transit).
Your cartridge should now be fully operational. Please be assured that the contents of the cartridge are food grade and completely harmless to yourself and if accidentally consumed will be harmless to health. Kind regards, BRITACare
Of course it will purify water. Nice size, fits easily the fridge door.
Yes, My cup of coffee or tea has much less scum, it tastes a lot better. I will drink the water from the jug too. I do not drink tap water..
Dear Customer, the BRITA Maxtra+ filter cartridge will improve the taste of tap water by reducing the chlorine, hardness and other organic impurities but it will not make safe untreated water. Kind regards, BRITACare
No just removes impuratees.
Yes, I believe so.
Hi, the BRITA Maxtra+ cartridge is capable of reducing lead by up to 90%. Kind regards, BRITACare
Hi, yes the funnel is removable from the jug to ensure thorough cleaning can be followed. Kind regards, BRITACare
