Place the Brita water filtration system's connection point onto the faucet and twist. This connects the filter to the faucet. Make sure the connection is tight to prevent water from leaking.

Insert the filter medium into the top of the Brita water filtration system. It snaps into place once the groves along the side of the filter match the insertion points on the filter.

Turn the filter handle on the side of the filter to "On." Turn on your faucet and let it run for five minutes. This flushes out any debris stuck inside the filter. The filter will last for about 100 gallons of water (typically about five months of use). Once you pass the five-month mark, change the filter medium.
