Mavea Review



Fresh, clean drinking water. Isn't that what we all want? And we all know that there's some minerals and things in our tap water that we don't need in our system. So that's when we invest in a filtration water pitcher like Mavea. 

Mavea was kind enough to send me the Elemaris pitcher in black! This pitcher retails for just $31.99 through Amazon. And the Replacement cartridges are 3 pk $17.95. Brita is the same price in the store. The only difference is these need to be ordered online. That can be a bit stressful, but if you order in advance you'll have no problem being out of a pitcher. 

I like the nice sleek design. It's real thin and fits nicely in the packed fridge we have. 
It has a meter on top of it which tells you when to change the filter and how much of the filter has been used. It's real neat!
Overall: ****. I would like to see a Pitcher that has a permanent filter. I don't like the idea of spending $18 every 9 months for new filters. But we do what we have to in order to get clean drinking water.

I learned that Carbonate hardness is the quantity of dissolved calcium and manganese ions tied to hydrogen carbonate. When water is being heated up these salts develop scale deposits.
