Q: Which of these filter eliminate microplasctics as well as other contaminents? What size pitcher is for 2 people?? And matches the filter? I will order.
A: Thank you for reaching out, and we're glad to assist you. Although our Advanced Filter reduces chlorine, copper, cadmium, and mercury, it doesn't eliminate microplastics. We recommend our Elite pour-through filters and Faucet Mount filters, which are certified to reduce 99% of microplastics. The amount of water your household consumes would determine the pitcher size you'd need. If you have any further inquiries, kindly contact us at 800-242-7482 with reference number 230626-000591. We're excited to hear from you. Alexandrea from The Brita Team.submitted byBrita - 5 months agoBrand expert
Q: Does the newer filters fit in my old pitcher? When I put the water in the top it runs right through to the bottom - it does not hesitate the way it did with the older filters. Is it filtering?
A: If your dispenser or pitcher is an older model, and you see any space around the edge of the filter when it's fully "seated," then it may not be filtering correctly. I ended up buying a new dispenser because I didn't trust that the water was being filtered after the filters changed to their current design. I contacted the company and they were no help--just told me to line up the groove to the filter, but the entire filter was popping out of place (I'd see it floating minutes after I filled up), so I'd say the new filter design is no longer compatible with older dispensers. After getting a new dispenser, I can see a big difference in the way the filter creates a seal. I think the company should stop saying that the filters are compatible with all filters and dispensers.submitted bycarmen - 6 years ago

Q: Will these seat properly -- wait for it -- in a Target "Up&Up" pitcher?
A: Hi there, John. Our filters are designed to fit in all of our Brita pitchers, except the Stream. We hope this information is helpful. Jess from the Brita teamsubmitted byBrita - 5 years agoBrand expert
A: Yes. I have an Up & Up 7 cup pitcher that I purchased 3/2020. I just purchased the 4 pack of Brita filters today 5/2020, They fit better than the Up & Up in my opinion and are a lot easier to remove. You just push the filter firmly down into the hole and it's a very snug fit.submitted byflmom - 4 years ago
