    Mine is also stuck. The ring to pull it out even broke. It looks like there is some sand around the edges. Tried to push them down with a knife, but don't want to break anything.

Hold filter cartridge in one hand and slowly turn on water. The water pressure will push the cartridge out of the housing.

Brita Memo Replacement Unit failed then order a FREE replacement !


Create an account at Brita then go here you will receive you new Brita Memo Replacement Unit within 10 days.

https://www.brita.net/uk/replacement_parts.html?L=1

Usually the battery in this unit will last about four years however if you register your details with a valid email all BRITA products will come with a 2 year manufacture guarantee... but should any part of it break, we will send you a replacement part absolutely FREE

Don't bother trying to replace the CR1616 battery yourself it is a sealed unit and once the seal is broken you can replace the battery but it will fail very soon with steam ingress even if you superglue it.!!

Brita filter


When you initially soak the bag in water make sure to squeeze it lightly and shake to release all the air bubbles. Also, you should pour out the first couple pitchers of water after using a new filter as it takes time to break in. This way all of the gray or black filter water will be gone by the time you wish to drink. For more water filter and pitchers go to www.freshwatersystems.com.

Im at the six month point, red light flashing, which of the filters do i replace and do i need to sanitize the storage tank?


The filters that you should replace every the six months are the two pre/post filters (FQROPF). The membrane (FQROMF) needs to be replaced every 1 to 2 years. During the filter change, bacteria could be introduced, so it is recommended that you sanitize the tank while changing the filters. Here are the filters you need to replace:

IF THE RO OR ANY T33 FILTER HAS BEEN INSTALLED HORIZONTALLY, TRY TO INSTALL IT VERTICALLY WHERE THE OUTPUT IS ON TOP. GOD BLESS.

When I pour water into Brita pitcher I always get a lot of sediment or whatever it is from the replacement filters. I tried pouring different ways but not much of a difference.


From the description of this model's replacement filters, they appear to be carbon filters. What you are seeing is most likely bits of carbon granules from the filter media (which doesn't say much for the construction quality of these filters). I would suggest getting an inexpensive countertop or under-counter filtration system instead of using Brita pitcher filters. These systems usually come with both carbon and sediment filters and if you get a non-proprietary one (i.e. not a system off the shelf at Lowe's), the filter elements are a lot cheaper to replace.

Kinetico water filter leak


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} What you are describing sounds like a quick connect fitting. I have included a link below to a video that explains how this type of fitting works. If you are using plastic tubing with these fittings you may be able to remove the tubing from the fitting and cut back about ½” from the end of the tubing and reinsert it into the fitting. Do not cut the tubing with scissors, use a tubing cutter or razor blade knife (see video). If that doesn’t solve the leak and you find that you need to replace any fittings we have a complete selection located here: http://www.freshwatersystems.com/c-276-fittings-valves-tubing.aspx

Too much carbon in water


Sounds like a bad batch of filters. Stop using them and return them to Brita for analysis and replacement
