Brita celebrated its 50th anniversary from July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2017. In Heinz Hankammer's garden, the company's initial BRITA items were handcrafted. Later, he turned the business into a pioneer in drinking water filtration technology. There are now 69 nations on five continents where BRITA does business. BRITA has a fresh appearance and a revamped website, so the future seems bright for the company.
When it comes to water filters, their effectiveness varies depending on what contaminants they are attempting to eliminate. Microbes can't get out of a jug because of the filter, but other parts of the water can get through just fine. In order to see what contaminants the Brita filter is capable of filtering out of water, it comes with a National Sanitation Foundation certification.
With conventional filters, the mercury level and taste and smell of chlorine are reduced with the use of carbon, according to Brita. Zinc, copper, and cadmium are all filtered using an ion-exchange resin. Pores in filters are used to regulate which constituents make it through the filter. The size of the pores may have an impact on the filtering process. Among the components it helps remove include asbestos, benzene, cadmium, cadmium, chloride, copper, lead, mercury, zinc, etc
