Why would you buy a Brita Basic Faucet Water Filter?
There are many reasons why you would want to own a water filter. Perhaps the most important reason is because tap water is unhealthy, despite what some people think. Even if your city puts fluoride in the water, that won’t prevent contaminants from coming through your pipes and into your home. In addition, fluoride does not improve health! So even if it “looks” clean, it isn’t.
This is where a filtration system comes in handy. Not only can you get pure filtered water right at your faucet so that no matter which cup or bottle you fill with water – there’s nothing but pure healthy mineral-ion filled H2O!

I recently moved into a new apartment and noticed that the tap water had an unpleasant taste and smell. Also, my previous home also had this problem too.
I installed Brita Basic Faucet Water Filter to take out all of that nasty taste and smell. This review will cover my experience installing it as well as if it seems to be working or not (I’ve only had it for about 2 weeks at this point). Also- before you move on, please remember that buying bottled water is terrible for both your wallet and the environment. Try some sort of filtration system instead! It’s better for everyone 🙂
Step 1: Remove the aerator
The first step is to remove your existing faucet aerator.
Step 2: Fit the filter onto the end of the faucet valve
Once you’ve removed your old aerator, screw this on instead. You can twist it tightly or give it a few extra counter-clockwise twists with pliers if necessary. This thing doesn’t budge so you should be fine without any tools here!
Step 3: Turn on the water and check for leaks!
Here I am checking that there aren’t any leaks by turning on the tap. Notice how clear and clean-tasting the water looks now? It’s also nice not having to worry about lead poisoning too 🙂
Requirements: Works on standard faucets. It does not fit on pull-out taps as far as I can tell.
What’s in the box : Faucet filter unit with adapter, instructions. No supplies necessary! There are extra adapters if you have a second tap but no need to order any additional filters since these last about 4 months depending on usage.
Pros : It’s cheap, easy to install and fits most common faucets.
Cons: Need to replacement after approximately 100 gallons or 4 months, whichever comes first.
