Brita UK filters do not increase aluminium content

The UK filters don’t increase aluminium.

The filters are designed to improve the taste and appearance of tap water and doesn’t add anything.

The filter material of the MAXTRA filter cartridge contains a mixture of ion exchange resins and activated carbon that has been tested to food grade quality.
The ion exchange resin used reduces the carbonate hardness (limescale) and reduces metals, such as copper and lead, that can occur as a result of domestic installation.

The activated carbon removes substances that may impair taste, such as chlorine and chlorine compounds.

Chlorine is added to the water as a disinfectant and impurities like lead and copper are often present. There is also naturally occurring hardness in tap water, which can create fur in your kettle and an oily scum on hot drinks. All of these are greatly reduced by using a BRITA filter system.
