Play Video


Wash the pitcher

Hand wash* pitcher/dispenser, lid and reservoir. Rinse well. With clean hands, hold filter under cold, running tap water for 15 seconds. Insert filter into reservoir by lining up groove in filter with ridge in reservoir. Press firmly for a tight seal.

* Do not wash in dishwasher. Do not use abrasive cleaners.


Set filter reminder

To set the filter life status indicator, press the STATUS button and hold it down for 2 seconds, until the green light next to STANDARD FILTER blinks three times.*

*For systems without an electronic indicator, refer to the filter replacement reminder instructions included on the back of filter reminder sticker.


Fill it up

Open the flip lid and fill the reservoir with cold tap water*. Discard the first 3 pitchers of water, or use to water plants. Please note that the system indicator will only count a reservoir fill if the lid is open for at least 10 seconds.

*Hot water shouldn’t be used with the Brita® Standard Filter (Max. 85°F/29°C – Min. 32°F/0°C).


Check filter status

To check filter life status, quickly press and release the STATUS button. When the light blinks red, you should replace your filter and reset the indicator (step 2). Filter lasts 40 gallons.

Set a Filter Replacement Reminder.
We’ll do the rest.
