Everything dandy except for the adapter

Everything on this works very well, water tastes lovely, the mechanism that switches the water stream from spray to normal to filtered is smooth and works perfectly . . . Just one thing. The threaded male adapter that hooks it to the faucet is VERY POOR QUALITY. I tried hooking this up for my mom and it just falls right off when you turn the water on. So I went to Lowe's and purchased a stainless steel adapter of the exact same size and now it works very well. So if you plan on getting this, also plan on buying a male adapter piece for about $2.50. Of course, this depends on the diameter of your faucet. Brita really needs to work on this. Note: my four star rating for durability is in reference to the faulty plastic adapter. Otherwise, the one we have owned for months has kept on ticking. You might also find that when the filter light turns red, it is not necessary to get a new one. You can keep using it until the water is noticeably different. If the red light bothers you, just take the filter out and put it back in and ta-da! It turns green again.

After seeing the negative reviews, I thought I should put a little more light on this product. Firstly, I've had my unit for a year and a half now and I'm still enjoying it. It works just as well as when I bought it. I've gone through 5 or 6 filters and finally tried using my last one long after the manufacturer's recommend use. I got almost three cycles from it before the water started tasting bad. The red light on the unit's base indicates when a filter replacement is needed. But this is only indicative of water quantity, not water quality. If I would've replaced the filters based on taste instead of the flashing red light's signal, I'd probably would've only used 3 filters since I installed it. Before buying, I viewed all the sample units on display at Walmart. I discovered the PUR model, where the whole filter twists to start the filtration cycle, to be junk. Part of it's plastic body fell apart in my hands while I was testing it's movement. The plastic was way too thin walled for the unit's simple operation. The Dupont system appeared more durable than the PUR's, but I didn't like the tiny control knob. It requires a twisting action that's too stiff for people with a weak grasp. This brought me to the Brita system with the lever control. It's smooth, easy and durable. The plastic walls of the unit's base and faucet coupling are much thicker than the PUR's. I haven't had any leakage yet from the system. I will admit that the coupling does come lose easily and needs to be tighten periodically. That's where common sense, of the user, needs to apply. Since we're dealing with plastic, we need to practice ease and caution when tightening this type of installation. Hand tighten only. First with a snug fit. Then turn the faucet on slowly and continue tightening slowly and stop immediately once the leaking stops. I give it 5 stars for expectations because of it's coupling. I don't expect anything better from plastic. I knew that when I bought it.

The basic idea is sound. The unit filters the usual bad flavors out of typical municipal water. The DEFECT is in the poor quality of the threaded plastic piece that attaches it to the existing spout. You may buy a unit and have it last a long time, or find that it begins to leak and totally fail after only a few weeks or months. The problem is the cheap plastic "nut" that attaches it. Once it fails, the unit is useless. Does not seem to take any more than normal use to make it fail. Even holding the unit and carefully switching the output resulted in failure. Look elsewhere... JUNK!

Call Brita to request adaptors. I also have problems with leaking or the thing just falling off completely....was going to return it because, but decided to wait to see if the adaptor would work (adaptors for the PUR system did not work). Brita will send a few different adaptors and the one that "deepened" the threads worked for me. I would have given it a 5 if I hadn't had to go through the hassle. They should have the free box of adaptors at the store!!

THe product does filter water. It also installs easily. However, on the back there is a button that will release the attached filter. When the water is turned on and the filter function is not in use, water will spray out of the area surrounding the button.

  • A. If you can't get them from Brita as all faucets are different. I would suggest you go to your local hardware store, bring the small nozzle that you must remove to put the Filter on and have them match it up for you. Worked for me!

  • A. Lowe's or any home improvement store that sells plumbing adapters. Look in the section by the faucet aerators, strainers, etc. It is in a small package and says "male adapter." Bring in the old plastic one for reference. I bought a stainless steel one and now the Brita mounts perfectly. No problems. The Brita is NOT USELESS as someone noted in their review above. All it takes is getting a normal male adapter to attach it to your faucet.
