This 2 pack of Mavea Water Pitcher Filter Cartridges are universal replacement pitcher filter cartridges for many filtered water pitcher brands and models including Brita pitchers, PUR pitchers, Culligan pitchers, OmniFilter pitchers, and other water filtration systems which use a standard size universal pitcher filter (barrel pitcher filter).
Using activated carbon, these pitcher filter replacements reduce the bad taste and odor of chlorine as well as various particulates such as dirt, sediment, rust, limescale, sand, and more. Unlike other water pitcher filters, these filters require no initial pre-soaking for activation. A specially designed micro-screen reduces the release of black carbon particles in to your filtered water, while the silverized carbon prevents the growth of bacteria within the filter.
