What are the benefits of BRITA filtered water?
BRITA is renowned for its expertise in the field of drinking water optimization and filtration for over 50 years.
Australian household mains water is strictly controlled but it can contain chlorine, metals and carbonate hardness (limescale) which can impair taste, odour and appearance of water. A BRITA water filter provides an easy but highly effective way to provide you and your family with great tasting filtered water by:
Reducing free and bound chlorine content (if present).
Reducing carbonate hardness (calcium and magnesium ions) in the mains water (if present). In other words, it acts as a “water softener” which is particularly important in parts of Australia where hard water is present.
Reducing metals such as lead and copper in the mains water which can be increased by corresponding domestic installations.
