The Brita pitcher system is well-reviewed on Consumersearch.com, where it is praised for its ability to filter out some contaminants and improve taste. It is not the top recommendation, however, because it filters slowly. GoodHousekeeping.com points out that in its testing, the system did an acceptable job of removing common contaminants, but only for the first half of the filter's life. After that time, the filtration rate drops sharply.
Reviews on Amazon.com generally praise the improved taste of the water. Complaints are often isolated problems but include difficulty changing the filter, residue from the filters appearing in the filtered water and having to wait too long for the water to run through the filter. Some users have even found that the filters don't fit properly, allowing unfiltered water to flow straight into the jug. Most users, however, are happy with the performance and find they save money if they are replacing bottled water with a Brita filter.Learn more about Business Resources
