How often do you replace your brita water filter?

Recommended Posts

the one i use at work gets replaced about every 6 months

i got a bulk pack at costco so i'm better at keeping up with it than i was when i was a youngun

 

i have a whole house water filter that gets replaced when we have a marked decrease in water pressure, about every 4-6 months.

seeing it dirty usually convinces anyone who hasn't seen one to immediately install a whole house water filter. (meaning, even in the shower i am drinking filtered water.)

Boiling water will eradicate a good proportion of all parasites and is often the easiest way to purify water, although it should be noted that the hepatitis A virus needs a full minute of boiling to eradicate.

^ :lol:

 

I've replaced it like once in a year. I don't care. I'm in NYC, the tap water is delicious. I just keep it in the pitcher so it gets really cold in the fridge.

haha if i ever have to dump ;) YUP

 

filtered water is soooo slippery.

 

once your done showering, you feel as if the soap is still on you.

 

 

get it off me....you have to live it to understand it.... balling

 

doooood.

 

this is NOT a filtered water problem (i've never experienced it in my home, only in new orleans, texas and florida)

 

this is soft water!

i bet you live in the south

She is right but I think it's like costal areas of the south. My dad had a place in Wilmington for awhile and the water was like that. He said it was because the water was soft, but I live in Charlotte and we don't have this problem. Also never had it in North Houston when I lived there so idk just depends on your spot.

Tap water in a nalgene bottle per vida

 

This. At work I usually fill the whole 32oz bottle 2-3 times and I'm good. At home I'll fill it up another 1-2.

 

Brita filters for me don't last the whole time they're supposed to.

I gave up and just refill a gallon jug that I bought at Walgreens for $2.

 

Then again, I do live in New Yawk and the water is pretty good.

 

Down with fracking in NY!

3 years ago I'm in NYC for bidness, staying at a swank boutique hotel. I wake up hungover & super dehydrated. I turn on morning news & see this:
