Today I bought a Brita FF-100 Black & Crome model. There was no green light flash after I inserted the cartridge. I don't if it's safe drinking or not.


This type of unit may have a battery that has a plastic tab that has to be pulled out so the battery makes contact. Did you read the instructions?

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.!!

I have a brita faucet filter. And the selector knob is getting harder to turn. If it gets any worse I will need to use a wrench. I wanted to try to lube up the movement if I can open up the casing. How...


I have a Brita faucet filter (model FF-100) that lately has become harder and harder to turn. I toyed with the idea of forcing the unit apart but, instead opted to lube the mechanism directly from the top, where the unit attaches to the faucet.
To this mean, you will have to 1) Detach the unit from the faucet. 2) Remove the filter. 3) Thoroughly wash the unit, inside and out, turning the knob to flush any debris that may be present. 4) Pour some drops of vegetable oil inside the mounting opening, coating the valve stem within. (Oil may pass thru the unfiltered water outlet, so choose an appropriate working space). 5) Turn the water handle (knob) to lube the valve repeatedly, until it loosens. 5.b) Optionally, you could let the oil sit for some time inside the base. 6) Rinse the unit and reinstall it on faucet (without the filter). 7) Turn knob to unfiltered position, and flush with warm/hot water. 8) Do likewise with knob set to filtered, but open faucet only slightly, to avoid over-spraying. 9) Remove base unit from faucet and repeat steps 3-9, as needed. 10) Reinstall unit with filter, as instructed by manual.
Water valves may seize due to mineral deposits. While you may be tempted to use detergents or solvents, be reminded that unless thoroughly rinsed, chemicals may corrode plastics, degrade your filter, or even wind up in your drinking water, so caveat.

How can i separate the two parts of the reservoir to wash it without breaking it?


I just figured out how to separate the two parts of the Brita Ultramax water reservoir so they can be cleaned!!!
Empty the Brita of water. Whatever water is not removed through the spigot will drain out if you turn the filter upside down. Then let the two parts air dry for an hour or so. Now hold the two parts between the thumbs and middle fingers on each end, press your middle fingers against your thumbs. Then slide your middle fingers up, and the white part lifts out of the clear bottom! Yay!! Now the clear reservoir can be CLEANED!!

Too much carbon in water


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

Brita faucet filter will not stay on faucet


Want a free adapter and patient enough to wait for a couple of weeks to get them?
"To receive a special adapter free of charge, call 1-800-24-BRITA or 1-800-387-6940 (CANADA)."
Call the number above and a voice prompt will give you instructions on how to get your adapter for free. 2 weeks might be too long but the best thing is it is made of stainless steel/chrome and it comes in 3 different kind of adapters with rubber washers.
