    Brita uses a non-woven screen for the first stage of filtration (the material of which is not specified). The second stage of filtration the water passes through a compressed block of carbon and zeolite. Through this 2-stage process chlorine, sediments and poor taste are eliminated from the water.

    The BRITA cartridges contain a combination of ion exchance resin and activated carbon – according to the BRITA website. The carbon is used to absorb chlorine, pesticides, organic pollutants, and improves the taste of the water overall.  It also prevents the growth of bacteria.  The ion exchange helps remove hardness, in other words, limescale build up.  It also keeps the level of metals in the water low.
