I'm not a big fan of Brita filters and decided to test one. I know its not the most scientific test, but it proves a point.
Don't get carried away thinking the Brita filter removed the sediment in the above picture. First I ran a litre of tap water through a Brita filter and followed that up by a trip through my distiller. The end product is the residue that you see above.
So, is the Brita filter worthy of your investment? Does it provide any benefit? Is it any better than straight from the tap?
