With a water filtration jug, you can easily and quickly get water that tastes better, is healthier and protects your capsule machine. Unfiltered tap water is often very chalky, which not only affects the taste of the water but is also wearing on capsule machines.
A water filtration jug like this BRITA Marella is a good way to get around the problems you see with chalky water.
The BRITA Marella jug filters not only lime, but also other sediments such as sand and metals from the tap’s pipe system. With a water filtration jug you get water that is not only clearer and tastes better than water directly from the tap, but is also healthier for you and your whole family.
As a capsule machine owner, you will quickly discover that with filtered water you get a cleaner and better coffee taste. In addition to brewing a more delicate coffee, filtered water also helps the machine works better, and extends its life by not caking its internal components in limescale.
There are many gains to be made by filtering water, and Brita has made the process straightforward with the Marella jug. Simply insert the supplied MAXTRA + filter into the jug, where it is easily clicked into place. The water then flows through the MAXTRA + filter, where it is cleaned of lime and sediments using the MAXTRA + filter's Microflow technology.
The MAXTRA + filter's Microflow technology consists of three elements:
- A fine-mesh net which is used to catch larger sediments from water pipes
- ION beads which soak up lime and sediments in the water
- Carbon beads that remove chlorine and other substances that can affect aroma and taste.
Through the MAXTRA + filter's Microflow technology, the water is purified and filtered through thousands of microscopic pores, so you are always guaranteed clean, clear and fresh water as good as bottled spring water.
A MAXTRA + filter can typically filter 100 litres of water before it needs to be replaced, which corresponds to about 1 month of normal water consumption. The Marella jug has a built-in indicator in the jug lid which continuously counts down while the filter is being used, so you can easily keep track of the condition of the filter and know when it is time for it to be replaced.
The filtered water can be used to fill the capsule machine, in addition to being served from the jug for general drinking use.
This package comes with 6 BRITA MAXTRA + water filters with the jug, so you start with enough filters to last a long while.
The Marella jug is created by German Brita who has been a leader when it comes to filtering water since its inception in 1966. Today, the Brita group is represented across the globe, where its filters are sold to consumers and businesses in various designs, all of which have in common that they provide clean, refreshing and tasty water cleaned of sediments.
