- Brita’s pitcher water filters are meant to be replaced after they filter about 40 gallons (150 liters) of water.
- The pitchers used to be at the mercy of their owners’ willingness to follow instructions.
- Now they’ve announced a new water pitcher that will automatically order a replacement from Amazon when it detects that it’s time to switch out the filters.
- The pitcher itself costs $45, and a pack of three replacement filters costs about $20.
- This is all powered by two non-rechargeable batteries that should last about five years.
