The benefits of BRITA!
We believe that when you start with great ingredients you finish with the best flavours and given that water is an essential ingredient for many recipes and the majority of hot drinks it makes sense to use BRITA filtration to help you achieve great results.
BRITA MAXTRA filtration reduces limescale, chlorine,metals and other impurities from your tap water. to help ensure not only the taste, but also the smell and appearance of both your hot drinks and cooked food is enhanced whilst helping your appliance last longer by preventing limescale build up.
Best to stay away from such a contentious area that is riddled with pitfalls –besides BRITA makes safe drinking water taste and look better but it is not a purification system –that is a completely different kettle of fish.
Hard water is water that contains a higher-than-normal proportion of mineral salts – at the latest count, nearly half (47.22%) of the counties in the UK are in hard to very hard water areas. This means that nearly half of UK counties are consuming water that contains above 200mg/l in calcium carbonate equivalent (Source: British Water). You can check whether you’re living in a hard water area by looking at this handy graphic.
Generally speaking, the most prominent hard water areas within the UK are in the South East of the country, however hard water areas within the UK range from Bristol and areas within the South West of the country all the way up to areas within Yorkshire.
Filtering is most important in these areas, so you can be confident that you’re drinking water that has reduced impurities. The best way to ensure your hot drinks and cooked food is tasting as delicious as possible is to change your BRITA filter cartridges at regular intervals which will also help prevent limescale build ups in your machine.
Additional cartridges are available to buy on our website – we recommend that you change the cartridge in your Hot Water Dispenser at least once every month.
