expired Brita Water 2.4l Jug with 3 Bonus Filters $23.20 Pickup with PTGG20 @ The Good Guys on eBay

610
PTGG20

Although being a true Oz Bargainer, you would drink straight from the tap…. I found this to be a deal as I was shopping for Brita Maxtra filters and the price is always steep. Currently selling for $28.60 for 2 filters in Coles or a pack of 4 for $46 in Target.

So this deals gets you a Jug which comes which comes with 1 Maxtra filter anyway plus you get 3 extra Maxtra filters. Remember to use Cashrewards.

UPDATE: Additional 20% discount if purchased using this code PTGG20.

    With the new bottle tax in NSW this might actually be a good investment

    •  

      BEWARE regarding longevity of this investment, I nearly bought one also on sale at Woolies last week, then realized above it was a "NEW" "Maxtra +" jug and different plus model filters. I bet this is a clearance sale to make way for Maxta + line and slowly they will stop selling replacement maxtra cartridges… i got stuck with a crap Brita on tap system and noticed there were phased out models over time for it also.

      What's wrong with tap water??

      Try drinking the tap water in our area and you'll soon find out - YUK! Not only does it taste horrible, we get ongoing limescale build-up and corrosion on all the tapware etc no matter how much we clean it off - a new sink tap in our ensuite has developed considerable limescale on it despite only being fitted a few months ago.

      my Brita jug started to grow algae.

      Any water filter jug tends to do this if you don't wash it out regularly, especially in hot and humid weather. I usually wash ours at least every couple of weeks in hot soapy water - you don't have to change the filter cartridge, just remove it and put it aside, then put it back in once you've washed the jug.

        Yeah, theres plenty wrong with tap water in lots of places. Think of how many km of crappy decades old fittings and pipes and pumps/reservoirs it has to run through….
        I had to laugh once when the fire brigade were using a fire hydrant on the street one day and in a bulk stream you could see the brown in the water… a neighbour commented on this and said they were glad we don't drink water out of the fire hydrant, they were shocked when it was explained to them that the fire service is only a separate pipe from the front boundary, it all comes from the same main out in the verge, and that's where they were, one and the same. It used to stain white clothes years ago… Bit better now.

          We regularly go through stages of getting yellow/brown water - got to the point where we'd run the taps in the bathroom to check the colour of the water first before putting a load of whites or light-coloured clothes on to wash. Doesn't matter how long you run the water for (as per the Water Corp's instructions of "run the garden tap at the front of the house for a few minutes, then the one at the back for a few more minutes" and the water should clear) or how many times you try it - nope, never clears, we always have to call them and they have to send someone out to flush the system every time.

    I've had one for years, and here's a tip.
    Buy the filters online from Ireland, good savings, and the bonus is, if you use these filters you can get 2 months out of each.
    Due to UK water being hard, and ours being relatively soft.
    Dont buy the Aussie made ones, they are inferior to the UK ones.

      Any good links to get the Irish filters?

    •  

      I did see a seller from Ireland, they sold these filters on ebay but the shipping offset the savings. These are the same sellers that sold Braun thermometers and its 35% cheaper than baby buntings.

      Its why you barely notice older generations in UK drinking water by itself, grew up it tasted like shit, gotta slap a tea bag in it.

    My wife doesn't like them because you can't recycle the filters.

    This Fill & Enjoy looks exactly like the Marella I bought from them a year ago. Did they just change the name or is it a different model?

    NVM, it is Marella.

    Sometimes the spout gets stuck and it doesn't pour correctly, and spills all over the table. Easy to fix when it happens, by loosening the spout with your finger. But you never know when it's going to happen, so unless you loosen it every time you pour, you're going to run into a surprise every now and then.

    Are filters necessary for Melbourne tap water? I use to drink Adelaide tap water and they were definitely required unless you like the taste of metallic water.

    I've noticed that Melbourne tap water taste almost the same as bottled water.

      Absolutely nothing wrong, Melbourne has some of the best tap water in the world…assuming you have the ideal plumbing systems.

    •  

      I can taste the difference between melb tap water and Brita water. But no, it's not necessary.

      I actually like the taste of melb water. It took some adjusting when I started using Brita.

    •  

      I am in St Albans, Melbourne and I did not taste a difference in Tap water and this one.

    I bought one of these from a Myer deal last year and the filter got stuck in middle part and broke when I tried to remove it forcefully. I'm struggling if it's worth buying another one while the previous one is almost new and just the center part is broken. I've even bought few filters on sale that are still unopened.

    •  

      You can just use a fork and pry the filter up with the vent holes on top (assuming its the ring lifting part that broke).

      •  

        Unfortunately, it's the housing part that holds the water that's broken. The filter got stuck firmly and it came off with the whole base when I tried to remove it.

          I've found the filters tend to get stuck if the jug has been in the fridge. We've got the larger 2.4L jug which sits out on the bench and have never had problems getting the filters out of that one. However with the smaller/slimmer one that fits in the fridge door, the filter "sticks" if I try to remove it just after taking the jug out of the fridge - let it sit for a little while and come closer to room temperature and no issues then with taking the filter out.

        •  

          @SimbaGirl: Ah! Maybe that's why I had that problem. Thanks for the tip. If I get another one I'll definitely make sure to leave it out on the bench for a while before I change the filter. Cheers

        •  

          @AussieDaddy: No worries, I learned the hard way :). Tried to pull the filter out when the jug was cold and the plastic ring snapped off. Finally managed to prise the filter out … only ever did that once LOL.

        •  

          @SimbaGirl: "Tried to pull the filter out when the jug was cold and the plastic ring snapped off." Yup! That's exactly what happened to mine too. I had it for a month or so and was trying to change the very first filter. I bought like three more filters on a sale from Myer and they're still unused. Haha!

      Boiling doesn't remove limescale and other harsh tasting minerals, it takes more time and more effort.
