Why is it important to filter your water?
It is important to filter your water for several reasons. Tap water can contain contaminants that can be harmful to your health. These contaminants can include lead, pesticides, and chlorine. Filtering your water removes these contaminants and makes your water safer to drink.
Brita filters are designed to remove 99% of lead from tap water, as well as reducing other contaminants such as chlorine and pesticides. Brita filters typically last for about four weeks before needing to be replaced.
The benefits of filtering your water.
Did you know that the water you drink every day might not be as clean as you think? Even if your tap water looks clear, it can contain traces of contaminants like chlorine, lead, and mercury.
One simple way to improve the quality of your water is to filter it using a Brita pitcher or faucet filtration system. Brita filters are designed to remove impurities from your water, leaving you with cleaner, great-tasting water.
But how long does it take for Brita to filter water? The answer depends on the type of Brita filter you’re using.
Brita’s standard pitcher filters can take up to 10 minutes to filter one full pitcher of water. If you’re in a hurry, you can speed up the process by pouring the water into the pitcher slowly, in a thin stream.
Brita’s longlast and ultralast filters may take longer to filter your water, but they last up to six months before needing to be replaced. That means you’ll save time and money in the long run.
So how long does it take for Brita to filter water? The answer depends on the type of Brita filter you’re using. But one thing is for sure: filtered water is worth the wait!

Troubleshooting your Brita filter.
If you’re wondering how long it takes for your Brita pitcher or dispenser to filter water, we’ve got the answer. Depending on the model, it takes our Brita pitchers about 40 minutes to filter a full pitcher of water. For our dispensers, it takes about two hours to filter one gallon of water.
If it’s taking longer than that for your pitcher or dispenser to filter water, there are a few things you can check:
– Make sure the lid is sealed properly. If not, air can enter the filter and slow down filtration.
– Check the age of your filter. If it’s been more than two months since you last replaced it, it may be time for a new one.
– Clean your pitcher or dispenser regularly. A build-up of minerals can slow filtration.
– If you live in an area with hard water, you may need to replace your filter more often.
If you’ve tried all of these troubleshooting tips and your Brita pitcher or dispenser is still filtering slowly, give us a call at 1-800-24BRITA (1-800-242-7482) and we’ll be happy to help.
