Question about Brita 35516 Pitcher
I started noticing a lot of dark specks (carbon, I presume) in my Brita-filtered water. Although I didn't think the filter was in need of changing yet, I decided to go ahead and change it. I was still noticing tons of carbon, even more than before (both in the upper portion of the Brita and in the water itself (though to a lesser extent). I don't remember it ever being like this in all these years. I changed the filter yet again, thinking maybe I had a bad filter. Same thing. I followed the directions with the filters, soaking them and then letting out the first couple of gallons. But I continue to get tons of carbon chips in the upper portion of the Brita and more and more in the water. In fact, I just looked at the bottom of my water and it was filled with large carbon chips and smaller, sand-like black chips. It's not my water - it's coming from the filters. I have no idea what to do.
Sounds like a bad batch of filters. Stop using them and return them to Brita for analysis and replacement
