Setting up your indicator

Setting up an Electronic Filter Change Indicator (Complete Pitchers only)

If you’ve purchased one of our Brita® Smart Pitchers, the electronic indicator will tell you when to change your filter. To get the indicator light working, follow these easy steps:

  1. Press firmly and hold start button for 5 to 10 seconds.
  2. Four bars will appear in the display, one after the other, and flash. Do not release the start button until the 4 bars appear and start to flash. If you have difficulty pressing the start button, a capped ballpoint pen may be used to press the button down.
  3. A small flashing dot in the lower right corner shows the indicator is working.
  4. Every 2 weeks a bar automatically disappears. When only 1 bar remains make sure you have a new filter on hand.
  5. After 2 months, when all bars have disappeared, an arrow will flash at the top of the display reminding you to change your filter.

Setting up Calendar Minder® (Space Saver and Bella only)

The Calendar Minder® is a simple dial calendar with the month and date to remind you when to replace your filter. Use it to make remembering easier.

  1. Insert a new filter.
  2. Set filter indicator to closest date 2 months from now.

On the date indicated, remove your filter and repeat steps 1 and 2.
