We drink a lot of water around here. At any given time, someone is usually carrying around a water bottle and drinking from it. It’s a habit I have instilled in my kids from the very beginning, mostly by example. They saw me carrying around a reusable water bottle and they wanted one too. But I have to say that while we are used to drinking tap water, it doesn’t taste as good as bottled water, and who knows exactly what is in the tap water. Maybe it contains stuff we would be better off not drinking. Which I why I was super excited to try out the newest Brita water filter pitcher, the Brita Stream.
Isn’t it purdy?
About the Brita Stream – the newest Brita water filter pitcher
The Brita Stream holds 10 glasses of water. It filters right in the sleek, beautiful pitcher and reduces chlorine taste and odor. The water is cleaner and tastes so much better than tap water. You can add ice to the pitcher because the filter is compact. The pitcher itself is modern and space-saving so it won’t take up too much room in the fridge. It’s perfect for any situation where you need filters water but it’s especially ideal for filling water bottles because of the controlled pour. It won’t splash all over in narrow openings. In addition to all of that, the filter is 10x faster* – it fills instantly and you can pour immediately after filling the pitcher. No waiting!
How it works
The filter was easy to install. You rinse it. Twist and click it into place, then pour out the first pitcher of water. You can use the water to water your plants so it won’t go to waste.
After you put a new filter in you hold down the status button on the top to reset it. To get the status of the filter life, simply press the button. This is fantastic for knowing when to change the filter. Under normal use, you will get about 640 pours (40 gallons) before you have to change the filter.
Filling the Brita Stream is easy too. You don’t have to take the whole lid off and deal with a dripping filter. Simply pop the lid up and fill with your kitchen faucet.
I love how the Brita Stream looks on my table. We leave it on the table during dinner so it’s easy to fill and refill our glasses.
I’m also a fan of using it to fill my water bottle before I hit the gym. I thought my tap water tasted funny. The water from the water fountain at the gym definitely tastes off. So I bring my own delicious, clean, filtered water.
Filters as you pour
I mentioned earlier that the Brita Stream filters the water as you pour it. The filter sits between the body of the pitcher and the pour spout so the water goes through the filter only as you pour it.
How to care for the Brita Stream
The Brita Stream should be washed by hand. The lid comes off as does the filter cage. There are removable silicone seals under the lid that you can remove for cleaning. This helps keep the moisture out of the seal to make sure the pitcher doesn’t leak. I was impressed with how well it sealed up. It’s a really nice design.
I don’t know how we lived for so long without the new Brita water filter pitcher, the Brita Stream in our lives but I can tell you that it is now a permanent part of our lives. I actually think the water tastes even better than bottled water and being able to pour it immediately after filling means no waiting EVER for clean water.
