    Ultramax Filtered Water Dispenser is rated 4.5904 out of 5 by 376.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best purchase I've made in a long time!!! This is by far the best change I've made in a long time! No more carrying heavy water bottles up the stairs & then having to recycle all. I truly can taste the difference and it makes me want to drink more water. I also give this filtered water to my pets as anything I can do to help them stay healthy is a plus. I spied on them as I placed two full bowls of water, one with tap, and one with Brita water, time & time again they would only drink out of the bowl with the filtered water...don't let ANYONE tell you they don't know the difference! Maybe Brita can get into the pet supply industry by creating drinking fountains for pets with Brita filters in them?!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, great, great!!! I bought an Ultramax just a few days ago and I LOVE IT!!! It's very easy to operate, just make sure you hand wash it about every week if you leave it outside. Fungus and mold like to grow in the inside of the dispenser. You can also leave it inside the refrigerator if you want nice cold water.The Indicator is great and if you've got the model without the digital indicator, it's great too, but it uses a sticker that reminds you. I bought our first dispenser in August 1995 when it was called the Optimax. We still use it today; it's just a little dirty.Still working like a charm for over 10 years!I highly reccoment this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Hard To Clean, Great Product Provides all the filtered water we need. Many reviews say hard to disassemble for cleaning reservoir. First time was a challenge, but there is a trick to do without breaking or giving up in frustration. 1.Run hot tap water on outside of reservoir for top 3" of it only. 2. Immediately turn right side up and run ice cold water on top 3" of white insert, being careful not to get reservoir cold. 3. Quickly disassemble using dry fingers and pinching motion. No tools required. I don't know why Brita doesn't recommend this use of basic science to aid in disassembly, since it does work well for us. Are you listening Brita ?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sweet at first, bitter after I loved (past tense) my Ultramax. I have had it for about a year and decided that I needed to clean the tank because I am starting to see mold. Unfortunately, after hours of trying really hard and as my hands and fingers are in pain, I realize that the water reservoir (white part that holds your tap water) is impossible to take out. Brita seems to think that customers do not have the need to clean the tank. I am not sure what the reason is behind the tightly sealed water reservoir and the tank, but I am sure it is a design beyond stupidity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Removing inner lining I was really frustrated at not being able to remove the inner lining to replace my filter. I tried a butter knife, filling it with water and a few other suggestions I found in the reviews. But the best advice I got was from Brita themselves. Once I contacted Brita, they were very helpful and gave me an easy solution. You put your thumbs on the outside of the container and your four fingers on the inside of the inner lining, you press and pull and it slides right out.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from hard to remove the reservoir I am surprised at how removing the reservoir from the pitcher is so difficult. I tried so many things to get the reservoir out after getting the brand new dispenser type Brita pitcher today from Costco. There was a coupon on the pitcher portion, which I had to remove, and I did not expect the reservoir is going to be that tightly attached, and I am planning to return this. It would be great if there is a way it can be removed easily to have this product user friendly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from hard to clean I feel that your design includes many sharply angled corners in which detritus can accumulate. I have had to resort to using Q-tips and toothpicks to scrape away this dirt, I feel that a redesign utilizing rounded corners would facilitate a much easier type of cleaning. Whaddaya think?

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frequent Green Algae at the bottom using municipal water I am using the fairfax va municipal water as recommended by the company. I frequently clean and change my filters as per the filter change indicator. But I see green Algae forming at the bottom near the water tap. I keep my filter on the kitchen counter-top at room temperature. I am not sure if the plastics in Brita material support algae growth or something else. Not sure if any one else is experiencing this problem. I don't see anything on BRITA site about do's and don't etc.

    Change Your Filter

    Step 1

    Remove old filter, then flush the new Brita filter with cold water for 15 seconds.

    Step 2

    Insert the Brita filter into the reservoir, lining up the notch in your pitcher with the groove in the filter. Press firmly.

    Step 3

    Fill the reservoir with cold tap water, and you’re done.
