Works well...BUT BUY A METAL FASTENER.
on February 13, 2008
I bought this filter because I was tired of having tons of plastic water bottles to recycle(not to mention the environmental effects of buying bottled water). Within 2 days the filter fell right off of the tap while in use, I re-fastened it and it kept falling off. Eventually the plastic threaded fastener became completely stripped and the filter would no longer fasten on at all. At this point I sent an angry email to Brita and began to dwell on 30.00 wasted(I'm a student..). BUT I decided to see if I could find a replacement fastener piece at the hardware store, I found a QUALITY metal one(2.00) that was the same size as the cheaply made plastic original. Put the filter back on using the new metal fastener and it hasn't leaked or fallen off since and it's been about 3 months. Long story short...IF YOU BUY THIS FILTER INVEST IN A 2 DOLLAR METAL THREADED FASTENER, WHICH ANY HARDWARE STORE HAS IN THE PLUMBING DEPARTMENT.
