  1. Marelize

    Looks beautiful and it gives me peace of mind knowing the water my family is drinking is filtered and healthy. Great purchase

  2. Cathrine Mahupete

    Love my jug and the great tasting water! It’s a permanent feature on my kitchen counter.

  3. David Robinson

    These jugs are absolutely THE best. We use them for camping and for home. The water is so clean and tastes amazing after it’s filtered. I have bought one for my parents and for my God son as only the best water should be drank.

  4. C.Hendrik

    When you get older it is more important than ever to take care of your health. This jug gives me peace of mind, knowing that the water I drink is clean, chemical-free and the added magnesium helps for muscle aches.

  5. Branden Nielson

    Awesome jug. No more dirty tap water for my family

  6. Linda

    I recommend this water jug. Would not be without it.

  7. Estleen Pretorius

    Water comes out tasting much better and nothing beats the peace of mind of using this jug for clean, fresh water. I love the appearance of the jug, it’s not an eyesore at all and I’m happy to display it in my office to keep my water on hand / keep up my hydration throughout the day.

  8. Mitch Puler

    Hmmmm…..what a difference it makes especially to the water in Gauteng. I leave my jug up there.

  9. Marianca Louw

    This was my best purchase this year… worth every cent!!! The water tastes amazing as if I just got it from a fountain in the mountains while hiking!!! It changed my life and I am now daily hydrated!!!

  10. Monnien Groenewald

    Since buying this jug I have become a bit of a water snob! Even cooking rice, pasta and soups with magnesium water now 🙂 Accidentally made coffee with tap water and immediately tasted the horrible difference! Kettle also don’t have scale anymore. Quick, easy and cheap way of obtaining healthy water!

  11. Ray Welthagen

    I had no idea that water could actually taste different. Once I had used the Magnesium Mineralizer Jug for a few weeks the difference is clearly noticeable. This coupled with the peace of mind of knowing that what I am drinking is safe did it for me!

  12. Leigh

    The jug works well for me; I tend not to drink enough water during the day, but with the jug at hand I can be assured of clean, purified water.

  13. Kim

    Have bought 2, one for each of my daughters at different times love the look, the taste and knowing they getting the extra minerals

  14. Julia

    The jug is beautifully designed! The thought of drinking fresh purified water, at my convenience, throughout the day is an absolute bonus; along with the fact that it has a sealed lid is fantastic! And I love the pink💕

  15. Dean Versace

    These jugs are amazing. You can really taste the difference. You will never want to drink tap water again

  16. Eugene Louw

    This is the best filtering jug I have ever bought. The water tastes great and it is a healthy alternative to normal tap water. Using the jug on a daily basis is much easier then struggling with water machine bottle deliveries. The stylish design makes it an excellent addition to a modern kitchen layout. Well done.

  17. Velma M

    Love it. Especially with a newborn in the family it give me a peace of mind that my niece can drink pure water, because she breastfeed her baby. Best investment

In order to achieve an optimal filter effect, you should replace the filter cartridge every 4-6 weeks. The useful lifespan depends on the quality and on the degree of hardness of your tap water.

The filter capacity depends on the water quality and hardness of your tap water. Under normal conditions of use, we guarantee a filter capacity of 120 Litres for the ‘Magnesium Mineralizer’ cartridge (oval) up to Making, the ‘Magnesium Mineralizer’-filter cartridge one of the most effective filter cartridges on the market.

Before the first use or replacement of a used filter cartridge, clean the jug, funnel and lid of the BWT water filtering system with mild soap water and rinse thoroughly with clean warm water. Do not use any scrubbing cleaning agents or scrubbing sponges, as scratch marks may be left on the BWT Magnesium Mineralizer water filtering system. The jug and funnel are dishwasher safe. The lid may not be cleaned in the dishwasher.

In order to achieve an optimal filtering effect, we recommend you put the filter cartridge into tap water and leave it for 5 minutes and then pour away.

After this, insert the new filter cartridge into the funnel of the water filtering system by applying gentle pressure.

The lid of the BWT water filtering system is equipped with the automatic ‘Easy-Fill’ filling system. Therefore, it is not necessary to remove the lid when filling the jug. The Easy-Fill system opens automatically when the water jet hits the opening and closes automatically again after filling. Pour away the first filling of filtered water and refill the BWT water filtering system. The BWT Magnesium Mineralizer water filtering system is now ready for use.

The BWT water filtering system may only be filled and used with cold water which is known to be safe and meets the legal requirements.

The water filter is not suitable for the production of drinking water; i.e. the filter is not suitable for the treatment of contaminated water.

The BWT filtered water is intended for short-term use. It may not be exposed to direct sunlight and is to be stored in a cool place no longer than 24 hours. If the filtered water stands in the water filtering system for longer than 24 hours, white marks may be left in the jug through the evaporation of the water, which can easily be removed by cleaning.

After more than 8 cups of water have been filtered in one process, a pause of at least 15 minutes should be respected.

Permanent water contact with the filter cartridge is not absolutely necessary in order to guarantee the durable functioning of the filter cartridge. The filter cartridge keeps functioning even if it is not immersed in water for a longer time.

If you are requested by the authorities to boil tap water as a result of contamination, this also applies to BWT filtered water. When the authorities approve the tap water again as being harmless to health, the filter cartridge must be exchanged. The water filtering system must be cleaned.

For certain groups of persons, e.g. persons with restricted immune defences and for the preparation of baby food, the BWT filtered water like any other water, must be boiled.

According to the recommendations of the WHO, the filter cartridge contains small quantities of silver, in order to avoid the growth of germs within the filter.

The filter cartridge must be replaced at least every 8 weeks after the first use.

Ideally, you should store the filtered water in your fridge. Our models fit into most commercially available refrigerator doors.

Place the “Easy-Fill” opening directly under the water tap and hold the water filter slightly tipped to the front in order to avoid water splashes. Open the water tap and direct the water jet into the front opening side of the flap. Fill the funnel as full as possible. The water now automatically runs through the filter cartridge.

At each replacement, the BWT water filtering system should be cleaned with mild soapy water and rinsed thoroughly with hot water. Do not use any scrubbing cleaning agents or scrubbing sponges, as scratch marks may be left on the water filtering system. The jug and funnel are dishwasher safe.

During use of the BWT water filtering system, limescale stains may be caused in particular on the lid of the BWT water filtering system through the drying of water drops. The limescale stains can be removed with a commercially available decalcifying agent/limescale remover.

The lid including “Easy Control” must not be cleaned in the dishwasher

As a quality manufacturer, all our water filter cartridges are produced in Mondsee, Austria. Our ultramodern production plant is located there, which is subject to permanent quality control. The filtering systems are produced in Germany and fulfil the highest requirements in terms of materials and processing.

Yes, neither the table water filter nor the cartridges are made of plastics which contain BPA. The table water filter is made of SAN and ABS. For the production of the cartridges PP and PPs is used.

Our filter granules consist of a carefully balanced mixture of activated carbon and ion exchangers. Thanks to its large surface area, the activated carbon binds with taste-inhibiting substances, e.g. chlorine and chlorine compounds. The ion-exchangers absorb calcareous substances (e.g. calcium) and heavy metals (e.g. lead and copper) and remove them from the filtered water.

Additionally, the BWT filter granulates are fitted with the patent protected Magnesium technology with which magnesium-ions in exchange with calcium-ions are added to the filtered water. As a result the pH-value is reduced less in comparison to other table water filters. This results in a well-balanced, better tasting water, as well as the food and drinks prepared with it.

If they are stored properly, the original BWT cartridges can be kept for several years

Stored properly means:
• Temperatures between 1°C and 40°C.
• No direct sunlight.
• No exposure to radiation.
• The cartridges must be kept in the original sealed packaging.

No, the BWT filter cartridge is not designed to filter Fluoride from the water or to reduce the amount of Fluoride.

Yes, our products are independently tested and certified through W.Q.A. to NSF/ANSI 42 for the reduction of aesthetic chlorine taste and odor. Tested and certified to NSF/ANSI 53 for the reduction of Cadmium and Copper and certified to NSF/ ANSI 372 for lead free compliance and CSA B483.1.
