How does a BRITA MAXTRA+ water filter work?

BRITA MAXTRA+ water filters provide an easy but highly effective way to provide you and your family with great tasting filtered water by reducing a number of impurities that exist in our tap water.

Here's How the MAXTRA+ Filter Works

The unique MicroFlow technology features a mixture of Ion Exchange Pearls and Micro Carbon Pearls, formulated especially to provide expert levels of filtration for different water conditions around the world, including Australia. 

As soon as the water comes into contact with the Ion Exchange Pearls, they bind and reduce any metals such as lead and copper that may possibly be present in household pipes. In addition, they also ensure reliable protection from limescale build-up by reducing any carbonate hardness of the water (calcium and magnesium ions) in the mains water. This is particularly important for certain areas of Australia and New Zealand where hard water is present as it acts as a “water softener”.
Meanwhile, the Micro Carbon Pearls, made from the carbon in natural coconut shells, absorb and lock away substances such as chlorine and chlorine compounds that impair the taste of drinking water.
Furthermore, the MAXTRA+ filter also contains a fine Micro Mesh for reduction of rough particles and a fine cartridge grid which effectively controls the exit of fine particles.
