Brita v Dafi classic water filter cartridges

Postby KC2 » August 4th, 2018, 11:09 am

Hi
Has anyone used the Dafi water filter cartridges that are supposed to fit the Brita Classic filter jug? https://amzn.to/2vzKnoY

The difference in price between 6 of these and the Brita ones is about £7 and I'm wondering if it's worth risking them.

So if anyone has any comments/ experience it would be great to hear it!

Thanks!

Don't know about these but our local supermarket, Leclerc, sells it's own beand of filters and they are half the price of Brita ones. We can't detect any difference and what is more they take the used cartiridges for recycling.

Lots of comments about clogged filters with the cheaper filters. Buyer Beware I think!.

Good reviews of the filters on Amazon, I’d have thought worth risking a two pack

Ah, thanks, Sue, I didn't think to look for reviews for the maxtra filters as I've just got the classic brita - but yes, I think it's worth a punt!
