The Brita Products Co. introduces the Brita AquaView faucet-mount filtration system. The Brita AquaView you can see exactly what the filter is removing from tap water.

The design and filtration technology is comprised of a bundle of porous, hollow fibers surrounded by granular media to trap contaminants such as 98% of lead, sediment and chlorine (taste and odor). AquaView has a removable side panel which, when opened, exposes a unique window that allows you to see what the filter takes out of tap water. The filtration power can be seen as the filter changes color over time as it traps the sediment from tap water.

"Whether your tap water contains fine sediment that collects over time or heavy sediment that is visible in a glass, you'll be able to see proof that it is being trapped by the filter," said Scott Sappenfield from The Brita Products Co.

In addition to the "window," AquaView can easily switch between filtered water for drinking or cooking and unfiltered for washing and cleaning. AquaView also features an electronic indicator light that provides a reminder for when to change the filter, a helpful reminder for busy people. Each filter provides 100 gal. of filtered water, approximately four months for the average family.

Like other Brita faucet mount filters, AquaView attaches easily to standard faucets without any tools. The compact design maximizes valuable sink space, making it easy to fill large pots and wash dishes. Its streamlined profile and high-tech design make it a stylish and vital addition to any kitchen.

AquaView is certified by NSF International, the nation's leading independent test lab for the certification of water filtration products, to reduce chlorine taste and odor and remove 98% of sediment and lead that may be found in tap water.
