How does a Brita filter indicator work?
Every time you shut the reservoir lid after a refill, it will either flash a green light 3 times (indicating the filter is still good), or you will see a red light blink when the filter has 0% life remaining. When you insert a new filter, you hold down the status button for 2 seconds to start the counter over again.
Why is my Brita filter so fast?
When a new one is put in, it seem to flow through fast just because it hasn’t captured any of the microscopic particulates yet. As the activated charcoal in the filter captures more particulates, it will begin to slow down some. I suggest you call Brita on their customer service number and express your concerns.
Can you overfill a Brita water pitcher?
