Brita filters come in many shapes and sizes, but all filter for impurities. Compare filters based on your individual needs and what you wish to remove from your drinking water.


In 1966 Germany, Heinz Hankammer recognised the need for removal of impurities from drinking water. His company (named Brita, after his daughter) first filtered water for car batteries, but his later filters purified tap water for drinking, according to the Brita website.


Brita filters come in several types: pitchers for refrigerator storage, dispensers for large-capacity counter use, faucet attachment filtration and filters for refrigerators with a water dispenser on the door.


Compare Brita filters based on the impurities they remove. Brita pitcher and dispenser filters reduce chlorine, copper, cadmium and mercury. The faucet filter reduces chlorine, lead, asbestos, turbidity, benzene, TTHMs, cryptosporidium and giardia. Refrigerator filters reduce Particulate Class 1 substances, related to chlorine, taste and odour.


Compare the benefits of the filter based on your usage needs. Brita pitcher filters may be refrigerated and provide cold drinking water. The Ultramax dispenser model is convenient for large families. Faucet filter models do not require refilling and filter out more impurities than other models. Refrigerator door filters provide cold water and convenience.
