May be suited towards a single person who drinks very little water. It may say 5 cups, but I don't think many people drink small glasses of water. And then you'll have to refill the unit with more lukewarm water from the tap. Part of the appeal is very cold water (in addition to the filtering)

I had one of these before I switched to the larger rectangular unit (Brita Ultramax 18cup) for a family of 4. And we end up filling it twice per day (which is a pain to fill and clean). I prefer the distilled water jugs from Walmart stored in the fridge, but those while it tastes better in my opinion, are worse off for you (since they absorb the nutrients out of your body).

Good deal if you want easy filtered water.

have this.. probably have to fill it 4-5 times a day which is annoying. enough water to fill up a 40z hydroflask. Would definitely recommend getting a larger size if more than one person.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm not chugging a pitcher of water in one sitting. This was actually the first Brita I bought, back in the 90s, and served me well at the time. I've moved on to a bigger one, but I also have a bigger refrigerator. I have one in the fridge and one on the counter, since cold water isn't always preferable (eg. for boiling).

BTW, I don't know if the image at Lowe's/Loblaws is correct, but it seems to be an outdated model. The Walmart one has the flip-top lid + electronic indicator, which the 90s version did not have. I would pay the extra dollar (over Loblaws price) for the flip-top.

Yes you're right. It appears Brita has updated the design of the slim model and these retailers have just not updated the images yet.

The one I picked up at Loblaws is the one with the locking lid (not flip top) and does not have an electronic indicator (based on reviews I've read, the electronic indicator is unreliable anyway). My old one is like the one in the pictures. Comparing the two, the new version is wider and shorter than the old one and also holds a bit less water in the reservoir.

Are the filters different between Lowes (Small 5 cup water filtration pitcher with 1 advanced filter) and Walmart (Brita® Small 5 Cup Water Filter Pitcher with 1 Standard Filter, BPA Free, Metro, White)?
Lowes says "advanced" filter while Walmart says "standard" filter?

Picked one up at Loblaws in Sauga around noon. There were 5 left after I grabbed mine. Went for some groceries, passed by 20 minutes later and they were down to 2. RFDers out in force baby!

The cheapest option is to get refillable filters (or hack your own) and refill with activated charcoal from an aquarium supply store.

Good idea but too much work for most of the schmoes around here, me included. You lost me at aquarium.

I think they're both the same. They may have used "advanced" when they first switched to the newer type, that doesn't produce the black flecks, but that was years ago, so I wouldn't be surprised if they just dropped using "advanced". As far as I know, for pitchers, there is only regular and the blue, long-lasting filters.

Haven't tried them yet, but Costco has their Kirkland brand of filters. 10-pack for $38 (web price). I don't see it on the Canadian packaging, but the US one says "Fits in most pitchers from Brita" on the front.

Those new advanced filters always seem to leave an aftertaste. I've stopped using Brita since. The older filters seemed to have been better.

I have the slim pitcher and yes I have to refill it a lot.
Also, I've noticed that if I fill it completely, the filter sometimes comes out and floats around in the water. Not sure if anyones had that issue.
