- Intensive Pre-Filtration
- Ion Exchange Filtration
- Intensive Final Filtration
The Maxtra 4-Step Filtration contributes to a +20% improved limescale reduction vs
- Also, levels of metals such as aluminium, copper and lead are significantly reduced.
Step 3 : Activated Carbon Filtration
The granulated activated carbon is another step in the BRITA water filtration
- The mesh retains particles, which are present in the tap water.
Step 2 : Ion Exchange Filtration
The ion exchange resin comes into action! It reduces the carbonate hardness, which causes limescale that affects the water quality and leads to a limescale build up in your household appliances

Step 1 : Intensive Pre-Filtration
In a first step the water flows through a fine mesh filter
- This is the pre-filtration
- Maxtra offers an advanced filtration technology that works in four steps:
- Activated Carbon Filtration
- It significantly reduces substances that affect smell and taste of your tap water such as chlorine, certain pesticides and organic impurities.
Step 4 : Intensive Final Filtration
In the fourth and last step a special fine mesh filter retains the particle mixture
Maxtra fits all new BRITA jug water filters easily! Just insert the cartridge into the funnel and press it down until you hear a slight "click".
A ring pull handle on top of Maxtra and the non-slip grip make the exchange process easier for you. Maxtra cartridges require no pre-soaking and there is no need anymore to keep the cartridge immersed in water.
For almost 40 years BRITA has been involved in the optimization of water and has devoted itself to the future of this essential resource.
See the difference for yourself!
An aromatic cup of your favourite tea or coffee is an experience for all the senses. But for perfect enjoyment it is not just the quality of the initial products that play a key role. Only when you use the right water will your hot drinks or food become a true delight. This is where the BRITA filter cartridge comes in. You will see, smell and taste the difference!
No water is like another
The water supply companies make drinking water available as a basic foodstuff. It is subject to stringent controls and complies with high standards. But regardless of its origin, drinking water has individual properties such as a differing limescale content. Boiled water should fulfil special requirements for the preparation of different kinds of tea and coffee as well as food.
After all, a cup of coffee or tea is around 98% water! Thanks to the BRITA filter cartridge you always have optimum freshly treated water on hand for boiling. And you can savour delicious food and drink with a full aroma, perfect taste and appetising appearance!
Why filtered water?
Hard water and coffee or tea do not go together well. How hard your water is (overall hardness) depends on the permanent hardness and carbonate hardness of the regional water. The carbonate hardness is also known as limescale. During brewing it impairs development of the fine flavours. It is also responsible for unattractive scum in your tea. And another thing: limescale builds up in your kettle as unsightly and annoying deposits.
