SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Brita faucet filter will not stay on faucet

I also had this problem where my Brita on tap filter would fall off with the slightest touch. With our faucet, no adapter was needed. As others have mentioned, the problem is that with the white washer/mesh dome assembly in place, there is not enough additional threading to secure the unit to the faucet under pressure.
My solution was to do the following:
1) Remove the white washer/ mesh dome assmebly and pry the washer away from the mesh...keep the mesh.
2) Go to Lowes, Ace, or any hardware store and get some teflon valve packing string, like this from Lowes - http://preview.tinyurl.com/27g55pu. I had some on hand after repairing an outdoor spigot. This stuff compresses a great deal and forms an amazing seal.
3) Lay the teflon string inside the water filter where the old washer was. Mark where it overlaps and cut it. Sort of pack it in and flatten it out a bit with a flathead screwdriver, especially where it overlaps.
4) Place the mesh dome on top of your new, low profile washer. Wrap some regular teflon tape around the threads of your faucet and re-attach the filter.
That should do it. The teflon washer will compress far more than the original rubber one, allowing more thread to grab onto the faucet and creating a rock solid connection. The teflon tap on the faucet will prevent any leakage that might occur at the point where your make-shift washer overlaps.
Hope this helps someone out! Thanks...

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.!!

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 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.

Brita faucet filter adapter is stuck in my faucet


It sounds like the adapter was screwed in at an angle. This causes the threads to cross in turn making it near impossible to unscrew. Since it is plastic I recommend buying a new adapter. I know it's unfortunate, however it is a lost cause.

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.

Hi, Same pb as davesal6 "Inoperative Culligan RO water monitor (LEDs don't light up)". i do not see how the solution address the question from davesal6. Do you need to have one of the switches turned On,...


The battery is either dead, the TDS meter is bad or there is a bad connection at faucet.
Replace the battery to see and run water for several minutes to see if light works.
