You know by now that water is good for you and so I'm always on my campaign to get people to drink more water. In New York City, we are blessed with pretty clean water so people can drink right out of the tap compared to most places. So when I received the Brita Stream water filter to try out, I was more concerned with how pretty it looked...lol. Don't blame me!
After unwrapping the pack and installing the filter though, I did start to get excited. I filled it up with water and noticed a few things. First of all, the filter wasn't like regular filters. Typically, you would have a compartment where you fill with water that seeps slowly into the main jug as the water is filtered. That way, you have clean water in the jug and you can quickly pour it into your glass as you need. But with this, there is no compartment. You fill the jug directly and the filter is between the jug and the spout so the filtration happens when you pour the water out.
Secondly, you don't have to rely on magic to tell you when you need to change the filter! There is a filtration meter on the top of the Brita Stream that tells you when it's time to switch out the filter in the Brita Stream. This is probably my favorite part :)
Thirdly, the red was cute on my countertop! Let's not forget that...
What's my verdict? I really like this water filter compared to most of the ones I've seen. The only drawback is that the water pours slowly because the filtration happens when you are pouring the water out. So you have to be very patient. But the water tastes so much better without the chemical taste you get from the chlorine.
