Good for You
Enjoy great-tasting, cleaner water for pennies per gallon. In addition to being certified to reduce copper in tap water, this Brita filtration system also reduces the taste and odor of chlorine. (Although the substances reduced may not be in all users’ water.) That translates into healthier and higher-quality water for hot and cold beverages. It’s even baby friendly—Brita-filtered water provides improved drinking water for women during pregnancy and can also contribute to better formula for infants.

Additional benefits also include waste reduction, since there are no plastic bottles to throw away or recycle.

About Brita Water Filtration
A tall glass of water can help you feel better and stay healthier. Brita believes it should taste good, too. That’s why their filters are designed to reduce the common impurity chlorine, often found in tap water. Use Brita-filtered water for cooking, coffee, tea, plants—and even for your thirsty pets.

It all started in 1966, when West German entrepreneur Heinz Hankammer set out to fulfill his vision of optimizing normal tap water. He began production under a pear tree in the family’s garden, affectionately naming the company after his daughter, Brita. More than 45 years later, Brita is now considered a world market leader of home water filtration products.

What's in the Box

Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

Every time I turn the water on, I expect the filter to pop or a the base to spray in my face.
Kathleen
The first hint of a problem came early on, I had to use a plastic adapter to screw it onto my internally threaded faucet.
Michael Baym
They designed this product for you and I to waste our money buying expensive re-fills when they aren't even needed!

I may be reiterating what many of the reviewers before me have said, but I may have a few helpful points to add.

First, they should have never used plastic adapters. Kitchen faucets with internal threads are quite common and the likelihood is high that you will have to use one of the included adapters to attach the filter to that kind of faucet. The plastic threading simply can't withstand the water pressure that will inevitably push on it when you turn the water on all the way.

It would have been very easy for them to use quality steel parts, and I'm sure most people would have been happy to even pay $5-10 more for something that will actually last. It is especially surprising that they would cut corners on a product where the real profit comes from the replacement filters rather than the original purchase. Who knows what they were thinking (or if they were thinking at all), but this product simply doesn't work when setup correctly.

The use of plastic is not where the problems end, however, because there is literally less than a half an inch of exposed threading within the top portion of the adapter. The adapters themselves also have around a quarter inch of threading. This is really a shame, because even using a weak material like plastic might be sufficient if they had enough threads engaging to strengthen the connection.

That said, if you are set on using this product (or forced to), here are a couple of things you can do to help alleviate the problem. I've gotten mine to work long enough for me to order something from one of their competitors.

- Turn the water pressure down on your faucet. In case you don't know how, there are usually two levers (one hot, one cold) underneath your sink that control the water supply.

Verified Purchase
I was cautious after reading the disgruntled reviewers state the Brita On Tap's alleged weaknesses but figured it was so easy to put on and take off that worst case scenario I'd just return it. The first thing I learned is that my sink faucet has threads on the inside. This means I had to use the Brita's included adapter. The adapter fit easily but without the washer. I could never get it on with the washer attached. This would be a problem if I had leaks or erratic water flow but so far that has not been a problem. After installing the base system to the faucet three minutes later, I was done. Now it was time for the taste test. Very good. The water didn't have the normal bad aftertaste from normal tap water and I'm now poised to cancel my water delivery, which is costing me about 650 dollars a year and which for all I know has more impurities than the company is willing to divulge. Compared to my Brita system--30 dollars for the unit and then 60 dollars a year in filters (every 3 months you have to buy a 15 dollar filter), I'd say I'm ahead more than 500 dollars a year. Sounds like a good deal to me.

Update: I discovered I couldn't put in the supplied washer in with the adapter because the old washer was "hiding" in the faucet. Once I took out the old washer, I was able to put on the adapter as prescribed in Brita's instructions. I tightened firmly by hand and there are no leaks or spattering problems. For the money, a very good unit indeed.

Second Update on 1-12-10

After 3.5 years, the system finally started leaking all over the place. A $30 system that lasts that long still seems like a fair deal.

Easy to use, excellent filtration system. I had some trouble originally installing it because I didn't know that plumbing threads are the reverse of screws. Once I got it on correctly, it has worked fine for over one year. The filters pop on and off easily, last a long time, and a red light tells you when it's time to change. Sometimes, the water pressure gets too low and I change to a new filter even though it is still showing a green light. The replacement filters are a little difficult to find.

We have gone through 3 of these in 2 years. The actual water filter works great but the way it attaches to your sink will eventually fail and end up spraying you or completely falling off. The attachment parts are plastic and if the threads don't get stripped while you put it on the first time, they will eventually wear down and then there is nothing you can do except shell out more bucks for a new one - mainly just for the little plastic threaded connector. Also, the indicator light is not 100% reliable. I recall it flashing red for weeks even though we had just put a brand new filter in the holder.

There are a couple of things to be aware of before you buy this.

The indicator lights are powered by a non-replaceable battery. Britta says it has a 5 year life but if it fails sooner it can't be replaced. After that, no indicator for filter replacement.

The mounting fittings that come with the filter are cheap plastic and I couldn't mount mine without it blowing off if the water was turned up too high. Call Britta and they will send (free) metal fittings but it takes a couple of weeks.

Britta automated phone assistance is horrific to navigate.
