The pros and cons of the Brita faucet filter

For many, having access to good-tasting water is not possible. Buying bottle water, or even water in the multiple-gallon containers cum water cooler combinations, can be expensive. Water pitchers with built-in filters offer a less expensive alternative. However, people are limited by the capacity of the pitcher. This article will give an overview of Brita faucet filter.

Pros

When large quantities are required, then faucet filters offer an even better alternative, for they allow people access to filtered water whenever they turn on their faucet. The Brita faucet filter is an entry in the faucet filter market. However, before buying one, it's important to be aware about the pros and cons.
Prices of the filter The Brita faucet filter is reasonably priced, at less than 60 pounds, which is far less than many months' supply of bottled water. Unlimited supply It also allows an unlimited supply of filtered water, requiring only the turn of a handle to activate it. Easy availability Filters are readily available at stores or online, and last for up to three months at a time (this can vary according to use). Effective in the removal of contaminants The Brita faucet filters are effective in removing lead and other contaminants, such as chryptosporidiumfrom and giardia from the water. Electronic filter indicator
The faucet filter comes with an electronic filter indicator which is altered for the replacement of the filter.

Cons

Plastic adapters The adapter of the Brita faucet filter that fits over the sink's chrome faucet is made from plastic. More than one reviewer has complained, about the adapter breaking and the filter unit falling from the faucet. However, it is possible to get replacement metal filters from the company, but this is indeed considered as an inconvenience. Low ability for the removal of lead When compared to other faucet filters, the ability to remove lead from the water is less than some brands, Culligan among them. Expensive costs The cost of the filters can be expensive and they can cost nearly twenty pounds in stores unless people can find them on sale or online. Short time-span Some customers complained that their Brita faucet filter worked well for less than the three-month span, advertised on the filter box. Hence, this has required the filter to be changed more frequently, thus adding to the expense. Leakage in the unit Another complaint was that the unit leaked constantly, requiring the metal adapter which is only available in the company.

Where to buy stainless steel bins

Stainless steel was first discovered in 1813 when a Frenchman discovered that if he alloyed chromium with steel, it would create a corrosive resistant metal.

Stainless steel lends itself to cookware and bins in that they become corrosion resistant and easy to clean. Steel bins will work well in any kitchen.
