We have used Brita filters for years. Seemed good. Kept seeing the ads "Oh dear" Brita leaves undissolved solids. Well..I cleaned the new container, rinsed well. poured water, waited, waited -finally gave up and put it in the fridge. Next morning tried a drink OMG! The last time I tasted water this bad was as a kid drinking from a garden hose. The same chemical soup taste. Oh well, their ads sold another one. They made money. It reminds me of the time I was somehow inspired by a Wendy's ad to stop at the one in town. Cold tasteless and crushed to a flat mess. Why do. I still listen to marketers?
