Filtration System Reduces Harmful Contaminants With the Aqualux Water Pitcher, you and your family can enjoy clean, better-tasting water straight from the tap. The pitcher's included Ion Exchange Resin filter acts as a magnet for impurities that are often found in tap water, such as lead, copper, mercury, cadmium, and zinc. The filter removes these impurities, reducing their potentially harmful effects. The filtering process also reduces that taste and odor of chlorine, thanks to a special sponge-like filtration system.
The end result is clean, better tasting water that is healthier for everyone. This is especially good news for children and pregnant or nursing women who are more susceptible to potential harm from lead and other impurities. Filters should be changed every 40 gallons or two months and are not intended for use with microbiologically unsafe water.
All Brita Pitchers are universally compatible with Brita Pitcher Replacement Filters.
Filter Change Indicator Ensures Healthier, Great-Tasting Water Changing your filter regularly ensures that you will always have clear, healthful, great-tasting water. The Electronic Filter Change Indicator makes it easy to know when it is time to replace your filter. Every two weeks an indicator bar will disappear from your pitcher's electronic display. After two months, when all the bars have disappeared, an arrow will flash at the top of the display reminding you to change your filter. Reset your filter change indicator each time you replace your filter to make sure your water is always healthier and great tasting.
Smart Design Features Make Water Filtration Easy The Aqualux Water Pitcher is built smart to make water filtration easy. The pitcher cover has a flip top so that you do not need to remove the entire lid to refill the pitcher. A contoured, soft-grip handle makes the pitcher comfortable and easy to lift and pour.
Stylish and slim, the Aqualux is designed to fit into your refrigerator door so you'll always have plenty of cold, filtered water on hand. Despite its compact size, the pitcher holds up to 48 ounces of water, enough for six eight-ounce glasses, making the Aqualux a practical choice for your family.
Improves Your Health and Invigorates Your Senses Water is a vital resource in energizing your mind and body, and using a Brita Pitcher ensures that the water you're drinking is in top quality.

Brita recognizes the importance of water to human well being and takes special care to optimize the healthfulness of your drinking water, so you can keep fit and energized.
A Simple Way to Support the Environment It's estimated that one Brita pitcher filter can substitute for the use of 300 water bottles, many of which end up in landfills. By using Brita filters, which are now recyclable through a Brita and Preserve filter recycling program, you lower your impact on the environment while benefiting your own health and possibly your wallet, too.

Great Water++++ Brita 42558 Aqualux Water Pitcher I purchased this product for my Mother after she said she had not enjoyed a cup of coffee since moving into an apartment several years ago. Now she is enjoying her coffee and "Fresh" tasting ice water. ...more info
Makes Florida water taste good! I didn't think it would be able to take the terrible taste out of Florida tap water (which tastes like drinking from a pool) but it did. The result is water that tastes extremely like some of the big brand names from the supermarket.
The design is a bit funky but it was worth every penny. Try it! I'm very excited about all the money I'll be saving on bottled water....more info
Excellent, as always by Brita, Love the Sensor. We live in the so called "boonies" and have well water. I have installed water filters for drinking under our sink in our fridge etc....they just dont cut it. The water tastes strange....so I wanted to try something to let us get great tasting water and help the environment by not buying water bottles.....
Brita is the answer.
This jug has a sensor on top that will remind you to change the filter. That is one of the best features....another thing I dont have to worry about or remember until its time. The water tastes perfect to me in our home now and I have no hesitation in recommending this item.
Water has a great taste Have been using this pitcher for about a month now. The taste of my drinking water has improved greatly with this pitcher. ...more info
Pitcher junk The pitcher worked fine for the first month after that the lid would not stay on. There is not latch for it to lock into it just sits there with a small plastic peace that kind of clicks in. The water tastes great but the pitcher is junk. ...more info
good but not perfect Pitcher's handle is a bit awkward when pouring, top sometimes falls off if there is water in the top holding area, the "meter" telling you to change the filter is just a timer with no connection to the filter so you reall yhave to go by how the water is tasting to determine when to change the filter.
Otherwise works as designed, filters water quickly and efficiently. ...more info
Excellent filter I am very happy with this Brita filter. The water here in my area is very hard and metal tasting. This filter takes away that pipey taste. It has a digital indicator to tell you when to replace the filter. Overall a great deal....more info
Looks Okay The Brita 42558 Aqualux Water Pitcher is nicely designed to fit in the top shelf of my refrigerator. Only a rectangular shape would have utilized space more effectively. Replacement filters are readily available whenever needed - as reported by a little window on the lid of the pitcher.
I carefully followed the instructions for start-up.
I guess it does what the manufacturer claims, and maybe it is beneficial for gaining the best health. But who really knows anything these days? Well. . . we do know that everyone works for profit. People do as little as necessary and try to profit as much as possible. An old black friend of mine once told me: "Yuz pays you money and yuz takes ur chances." ...more info
Awesome awesome pitcher. The only downside is it doesn't hold large amount of water.
If i put 2 quarts in it, it's completely full. It may just be me, but i drink a lot of water. Definitely noticeable difference between tap water and the water in this pitcher. Don't try to pour water while there is still water in the top half though. It'll leak a little big if you don't hold the top down tight. Overall, very very satisfied ...more info
Brita Aqualux Pitcher "GREAT" product Slim shape, fits great in frig. Easy to fill & change filters. I even make ice cubes from this pitcher's water. I use it to make coffee and it makes great tasting coffee. It removes alot of chemicals from the city water and I haven't had any health issues now that I use this Brita Aqualux water pitcher. Filter lasts a long time i've had mine over a month and i'm still using the same filter and it has 3 of the 4 bars to go yet before it needs to be changed. Try it you'll like it....more info
crystal clear water I bought this Brita water pitcher after reviewing a lot of filtration devices. This was one cost-effective product that was said to remove copper and other minerals. I have well water that's tested regularly for micro-organisms and its clean that way, but not for minerals. Basically my water was undrinkable, always had a scum on it. I knew there was copper and iron in it because my tub would turn blue. I don't of course use this filter for filling my bath tub. Now after almost one month daily use, my water is good to drink, to make coffee and no scum. I am glad I bought extra filters so when this runs out, a new one is ready.
I would definitely recommend this. ...more info
Great water!! Poor design. The Brita Aqualux Pitcher is wonderful at filtering bad taste, color, minerals. The water from it tastes and looks wonderful!
HOWEVER...in the three weeks we've had it, the lid has fallen off four times while pouring. The lid does not go on securely, so if you tip it slightly too much while pouring, the lid comes off (along with all the water in the reservoir). This has happened to my 10-year-old twice and, I'm embarassed to say, me twice. The mess it creates is not worth the mess.
I wish Brita would address this problem because, otherwise, this is a fantastic product!...more info
Brita Water Pitcher is Great!! I have been using my Brita Aqualux Water Pitcher for over a month now, and just love it!! Although our water is Marin County is just fine, the taste of this filtered water is tops! The pitcher is easy to use and to refill. I don't need to use ice, as the water is always cold. I bake a lot of sour dough bread, so the filtered water is perfect for this. I no longer find myself buying water in plastic bottles, which is much better for the environment, as plastic bottles are often re-cycled overseas, which doesn't make a lot of sense. I highly recommend everyone owning a Brita pitcher. I am hooked, and my family really likes the taste of the water, as well. ...more info
Great purchase I've been using this product for a couple of months now and have no problems whatsoever. I love it....more info
Great product! Great product. The dispenser is designed well, fits in narrow areas and lid stays on. Easy to handle...more info
Poor Design I agree 100% with a fellow reviewer named A. Ferguson. This is my 2nd Brita pitcher that we own. We loved the 1st one so much. When we came across a newer model in 2007, we bought one from Costco. We thought we would enjoy it like the old one that we had used for more than 7 years. We were wrong. Everything that was described by A. Ferguson is happening to us. The lid always come off when we try to pour water. We never attempt to pour it when the water is in the reservoir but it still comes off. It is horrible. I sent an email to Brita's customer service about our experience but the reply did not answer our question and concern. it was just a generic reply that a P.R. would do. Totally annoying and irrelevant. We love the taste of Brita filtered water but will not buy another Brita product until they can resolve the design flaw. I do not recommend this particular product to anyone....more info
Brita Aqualux pitcher Quality, well made pitcher. This is a good size, but is slim, so it fits easily in the refrigerator....more info
Brita Aqualux water pitcher This is a terrific product. The water tastes better than any bottled water I've ever found, using a Brita leaves a very small carbon footprint (a new filter every 3 months is required) and it saves money and resources. I think by using the Brita we have not used over 1,500 plastic bottles in the course of a year. ...more info
I love the Brita Water Pitcher I love my new brita aqualux water pitcher. I was concerned about all the plastic I used when buying bottled water, but I disliked the smell and taste of the water from my faucet. So, I bought the Brita water pitcher.
I love the design. It fits easily into my refrigerator because it is very slim.
I had read in reviews of people having problems with the top coming off. I have never had the top fall off when I was pouring water. Not a problem at all!
And, the taste of the water is great. There is no yucky smell! Even my kids will drink it because now I always have cold water on hand. ...more info
excellent instead of having lots of plastic bottle....so much easier and better for pollution. I have been ordering Alhambra water for 40 yrs. delivered to my home. But it hasn't always been easy to get the big bottles on the dispenser. However, I noticed on a T.V. program that they were using this Brita pitcher. I thought how much easier it would be and also I would be doing my part in not using so many plastic bottles. It is extremely easy to use and I would encourage all of us to be more careful of using so much plastic....more info
Great tasting water, improved design compared to previous models I have been using Brita water pitchers for a few years and I am a big fan of it. The taste of the water is very nice. It eliminates the need to buy dozens of bottled water every month and it helps the environment because it reduces the waste made from the plastic bottles. The previous pitcher that I have been using was poorly designed, but this pitcher is very much improved from the older ones. It's silm shape fits better in the fridge and the lid doesn't fall off when you pour, which happend quite frequently with the older model. The smaller lid is my favorite feature of this pitcher which makes filling it so easy. The electric timer is a TIMER, not a SENSOR. You reset the timer when you change the filter and the timer will count down 2 months, which is the usual lifespan of the filter.
Over all, a very nice water filtering pitcher. If you're sick of the plastic water bottles I would definitely recomend this product. Plus helps keep the environment clean!...more info
Read The Instructions I have had this Aqualux Water Pitcher for a couple of months now, and the only way I could duplicate the problems other reviewers have written about was to do everything wrong. It works exactly as described if you read and follow the directions; soak the new filter then rinse it under running water; do not attempt to pour while the reservoir is still full; when filling the reservoir, do not allow the water to hit directly on the filter; etc. I use this pitcher all day long every day and have not had a single problem. The water tastes great, and my tea and coffee taste better than ever. Do not be put off by the negative reviews - this is a great little pitcher and a great value....more info
Love my Brita Aqualux Water Pitcher Brita 42558 Aqualux Water Pitcher
I love this water pitcher. We recently found out that we have overwhelming amounts of clorine and lesser amounts of arsenic.
This baby filters out all of the yucky stuff and it's the freshist tasting water that I've tasted since I lived in up state Michigan and was tapped into an artesian well. YUMMY!
When the pitcher is full you can fill a 12 cup carafe full of water for your coffee. Chock Full of Nuts never tasted better!...more info
teen-approved! I compared all the Britas and liked the streamlined design for my modern kitchen. It is also well balanced to fill and pour, and fits nicely in the fridge. But I think the "cool" shape helped in my real reason for getting it - to get my young teen daughter to drink more water! This seems more acceptable to her than just from the tap! (...even tho my city won the statewide blind test of water taste last year!)
I do have to remember to rinse the carbon dots from the well occasionally, but that's just an aesthetic issue for the fill-er (usually me, of course!)
I got the three extra filters along with to save money and having to think, later. I expect I will use them double the time because again, our water is actually pretty good! (Many cities are moving away from chlorine treatment and on to ozone.)...more info
Great pitcher I bought this because it was supposed to fit in the door of my fridge. It does, with a bit of maneuvering. I've got a mini-fridge, and I can fit it and a carton of juice in the door. The electronic timer that tells you when you change the filter is a nice feature as well. Saves me from having to put it in my calendar....more info
