All BRITA filters provide high filtration performance while effectively reducing a number of substances that can negatively affect taste or odour such as chlorine. Additionally, BRITA filters are easy to install, set up and store.


BRITA MAXTRA+ / BRITA MAXTRA+ Limescale Expert cartridge:
The innovative BRITA MAXTRA+ cartridge provides up to 4 weeks of fresh, filtered water. Its ion exchange resin reduces both carbonate hardness (limescale) and metals such as copper and lead. The activated carbon reduces substances that can impair taste, such as chlorine and chlorine compounds (where present).


BRITA MicroDisc:
The compact and powerful BRITA MicroDisc filters up to 150 litres of water and lasts for up to 4 weeks. Its ActivSelect feature stops unwanted elements that impact the taste of water, such as chlorine, while allowing minerals like calcium and magnesium to pass through.

The new MAXTRA+ has been improved in many ways. The most significant advancement is the new MicroFlow technology. This technology is based on Micro Carbon Pearls which are smaller than the previously used Carbon earls. Therefore, they have more contact to the water leading to a better reduction of taste-impairing substances, as they are locked away in millions of pores of the Micro Carbon Pearls. Furthermore, the new mixture leads to a better balanced pH value in the filtered water which leads to an improved taste of tea and coffee. Additionally, a higher filling volume leads to a better filter performance. On top, the finer universal filter cartridge grid effectively controls the exit of fine particles (black bits) and reduces rough particles even better. To answer even better to different consumer needs, BRITA has launched MAXTRA+ LImescale Expert for powerful limescale reduction in hard water areas. The better hardness reduction of MAXTRA+ Limescale Expert is caused by a larger amount of Ion-exchange pearls that reduce hardness.

Living in a hard water area requires the MAXTRA+ Limescale Expert. For medium and soft hardness, the MAXTRA+ Universal cartridge is sufficient. The local administration services provide detailed information about water hardness, e.g. for Beijing or for Shanghai.

Both the BRITA MAXTRA+ and MicroDisc filters have been designed for quick and easy installation.​


BRITA MAXTRA+ cartridge:​

Simply fill a jug or bowl with water. Immerse the BRITA MAXTRA+ cartridge in cold water and shake it gently to remove any air bubbles. Insert the cartridge into the funnel of the jug and run water two times through the filter. After having discarded the first two litres, you are now ready to use your BRITA filter.​


BRITA MicroDisc:​

Before using the MicroDisc for the first time, place it under running water and lightly rub both sides with your fingers for approx. 30 seconds. This effectively removes any loose carbon dust that may be present.​


You should ideally store your BRITA water receptacles in a cool place, for example in the fridge. You should also ensure the receptacle is not stored in direct sunlight and you should use the water in the receptacle within one day.



BRITA water filter systems are designed for use only with municipally treated tap water or with water from private supplies which has been approved as safe to drink,which complies with relevant laws, regulations, rules and National Standards in respect of hygiene, supplier, source, parameters and other criteria.

MAXTRA+ cartridge life depends on the local water quality, for example on water hardness. To ensure optimum performance you should change your BRITA MAXTRA+ cartridge every 4 weeks. To remind you of the next cartridge change, your BRITA water filter jug is equipped with a cartridge exchange indicator.

All BRITA filter systems help to greatly reduce the consumption of plastic bottles. Due to their high recyclability, BRITA components make a positive and sustainable difference on the environment.

If properly stored, all original BRITA cartridges can be kept for 4 years. Proper storage includes a temperature between 1°C and 50°C, with no direct sunlight or heat , while the cartridge remains sealed them in its original sealed package.

All BRITA water filters are dishwasher-safe up to 50°C. They may also be washed by hand using warm, soapy water and a sponge. Please note that the BRITA Memo in the lid is not dishwasher safe and should not come into prolonged contact with water. To avoid discolouration, never fill with liquids and juices that easily stain. For more information, please refer to the instruction manual.

Ideally, you should use filtered water within one day. Should your BRITA water filter not be in use for a prolonged period of time (for example while you are on holidays), BRITA recommends that you take out the MAXTRA cartridge, discard any water left inside the BRITA water filter and loosely insert the MAXTRA cartridge again.

BRITA offers replacement parts (upon availability) for its products.

​Yes, with the practical fill&go Vital, you can enjoy filtered BRITA water anywhere. Simply fill with tap water and you are ready to enjoy!

The fill&go Vital may only be used with municipally treated cold tap water provided by your local water authority. This water is constantly controlled and according to legal regulations safe to drink. If an instruction is received from the authorities that mains water must be boiled, then BRITA filtered water must also be boiled. When the instruction to boil water is no longer in force, the entire bottle must be thoroughly cleaned and a new MicroDisc inserted. For certain groups of people (e.g. those with impaired immunity and babies), it is generally recommended that tap water should be boiled; this also applies to filtered water. BRITA filtered water is a foodstuff intended for human consumption; you should therefore use the water in your flll&go Vital within one day.

The new and improved activated carbon MicroDisc filter, for use in the BRITA fill&go Vital, lasts 4 weeks.
