July 21, Re: SU14] Executive Summary Brita is the market leader in the household water purification industry with its pitcher-filter product. Brita has developed a similar product. The problem is, if it should invest another huge amount of money in the new product?
June 11, I bought a Brita under sink water filtration system from Home Depot 1 year ago. At the 6 month mark you could not get the C filters either at their store or online.
Now it's the A filter that is not sold in stores or online yet you can purchase the entire system. If Brita allows them to use the Brita name they should make sure the consumer is not getting ripped off after buying the system.
This is a ripoff and will tell everyone not to buy anything with a Brita name on it. Helpful 10 people found this review helpful T.
June 1, Extreme gastrointestinal illness - I almost never post reviews but my experience is so extreme I feel compelled to share it in the hope of helping others.
I've been drinking nothing but bottled water for several years but bought a new Brita 10 cup water filter pitcher in April of this year to save money and cut down on plastic bottle waste.
I also bought 2 of the expensive blue filters to go with it because they're advertised as removing lead. After following the directions and carefully setting it up, my wife and I began drinking from the pitcher on April 14th. Within 2 or 3 days, my wife and I began having mild flu-like symptoms with headaches, mild nausea, some fatigue and a little loss of appetite.
The symptoms were very mild at first and we didn't associate our trouble to anything other than maybe a random "bug". Within a week my wife began having severe dental pain in all her teeth and I began having moderate to severe pain in both shoulders upon waking in the morning.
My wife drinks a lot less water than I do and after about 10 days, she stopped drinking from the pitcher. In less than a week, her symptoms subsided and her dental pain was completely gone.
I continued to drink a lot of water from the pitcher, between a half gallon to a gallon every day. My symptoms became progressively worse and by the first day of May, I was experiencing severe nausea, severe diarrhea, total loss of appetite, mounting fatigue and an extreme feeling of malaise.
I went to my family doctor who ran numerous tests including urine, blood, stool, ultrasound, etc. She also prescribed anti-nausea medication and antibiotics.
My nausea was so severe she gave me a medication designed for chemotherapy patients.
I was also experiencing night sweats, depression, a lack of mental clarity and even beginning to wonder if this was the end. My symptoms were so bad my doctor wanted to rule out colon cancer and set up a colonoscopy for me.
I was so severely ill I had to re-schedule the colonoscopy for a week later. Taking the anti-nausea medication every 4 hours was the only way I could get through the day without extreme distress. I had my colonoscopy and thankfully the test came back clean.
By May 10 I finally put two and two together and stopped drinking from the Brita pitcher. I Googled "Brita water filter made me sick" and was met with hundreds of results from this website and many others with people reporting the same severe GI problems I was having after drinking from the Brita water filter pitcher.
During this time the doctor's tests revealed I had elevated liver enzymes but was otherwise inconclusive. After stopping drinking from the Brita pitcher my horrible symptoms finally began to subside.
