Water filtering jug "Marella", produced by BRITA, composed of:
- Transparent plastic carafe, total capacity 2.4 L, filtered water capacity 1.4 L;
- Special filter funnel, made of plastic BPA-free (Bisphenol A);
- 3 filter cartridges, type MAXTRA PRO - each can filter approximately 150 L of tap water;
- Plastic lid, with a Memo type indicator for changing the filter cartridge.
Why BRITA water filter jugs?
These innovative filter jugs are a practical, convenient, and eco-friendly way to stay hydrated without the need to constantly carry classic bottled water. Unlike environmentally unfriendly and hardly degradable plastic bottles, BRITA jugs are used for the long term, requiring only the simple replacement of filter cartridges.
With them, you can enjoy the authentic taste of water, which, once filtered, will be much clearer, and impurities will be reduced.
Additionally, the Marella filter jug has a distinctive design that allows it to be stored in any refrigerator door.
The carafe and funnel can be washed in the dishwasher, except for the lid, which should be cleaned manually.
Indicator for changing the cartridge
The Marella filter jug is equipped with a warning system for changing the cartridge called Memo, located on the lid. Easy to observe and set, this is an AUTOMATIC indicator.
How does it work? It monitors the water filtration process and displays the remaining operating time of the MAXTRA PRO cartridge. After inserting the MAXTRA PRO cartridge, press the START button for a few seconds until the 4 bars are displayed on the screen and alternately light up twice. Each bar represents one week out of the four in which the MAXTRA PRO cartridge can be used with maximum performance. At the end of each week of using the MAXTRA PRO filter cartridge, one bar will disappear from the display, indicating the remaining lifespan.
Replacing the MAXTRA PRO filter cartridge
For a consumption of 2 L of water per day per person and to achieve optimal results each time, we recommend replacing the MAXTRA PRO cartridge every 4 weeks or after 150 L of filtered water. After the recommended period has expired, detach the lid of the filter jug, carefully remove the funnel, then, holding the cartridge on both sides, pull it upwards.
The new ergonomic shape of the MAXTRA PRO cartridges allows for easy removal and replacement.
MAXTRA PRO Technology
The jug is equipped with the BRITA MAXTRA PRO filter cartridge, an improved version of the previous MAXTRA variants.
The innovative MicroFlow filtration technology of the MAXTRA PRO cartridges used in BRITA filter jugs ensures optimal results every time, their performance being the result of 5 years of research in BRITA laboratories in Germany. The taste of tea and coffee, whether hot or cold, will be visibly improved once the water used for these has been filtered with MAXTRA PRO. By using filtered water, limescale will no longer build up on appliances, thus extending their lifespan.
MAXTRA PRO offers an economical and environmentally friendly alternative for tap water consumption, as the cartridges are 100% recyclable.
Compared to previous versions of BRITA cartridges, MAXTRA PRO has a final filter that is 4 times more efficient than the MAXTRA+ filter. Tap water will first pass through a super-fine sieve for initial purification, first retaining coarse particles from old pipes, and finally passing through an additional high-performance filter.
The formula of activated carbon particles "Micro Carbon" removes impurities affecting the taste and smell of water more efficiently and rapidly. At the same time, powerful ion exchange pearls reduce the level of limescale and metals, such as copper and lead. The outstanding results of BRITA jugs and the impeccable taste of filtered water are mainly due to these particles.
Activated carbon, obtained from coconut shell, presented in a compact form, can filter a larger quantity of water more efficiently. The micro-pores of carbon particles capture unwanted substances, even battling pesticides.
*BRITA filters have been designed to be used only for filtering tap water (note: if the water is regularly checked and declared potable) or for filtering water from private suppliers that has been declared potable.
Evidence of the efficiency of MAXTRA PRO cartridges?
The entire filtration process and the quality of BRITA products are tested in both their laboratories and by organizations such as the famous TÜV SÜD, which has certified that BRITA products comply with European standards in the food industry.
The use of MAXTRA cartridges is recommended even by the British Tea Academy, proving that the flavour of tea and coffee prepared with MAXTRA filtered water is intensified.
How does the water purification process actually take place?
Simply! Through a relatively rapid but not superficial process, using the 4 basic components of the MAXTRA PRO cartridge.
1. The first filter stops impurities from entering;
2. "Micro Carbon" particles resulting from coconut eliminate chlorine and other organic substances that can affect the taste and smell of the drink;
3. Ion exchange resin retains metals and reduces limescale deposits.
4. For a final filtration, water passes through a final filter that retains even the finest unwanted particles, being 4 times more efficient than MAXTRA+.
5. The water is ready to be consumed!
