    Question Brita C150 Water Filter issues

    Just wondering if anyone has had any issues (no pressure or inconsistent pressure) with there Brita C150 filters.

    Currently, when I turn the tap on I get regular pressure for about 3 seconds, then nothing for about 60secs before it 'kicks' back in.

    I recall having this issue with the last filter which is why I left it so long before replacing.

    The setup I have is Mains > 3m 350PLV > BRITA filter head (0-70, set to 70 bypass) > C150 > faucet.

    From what I can tell nothing wrong with mains pressure or pressure from PLV, and tap also looks fine.. which leaves the cartridge (brand new) or filter head.

    Any info be greatly appreciated (I did try to search but only found one post about setting the bypass to 10, which didn't help.)

    My bypass is set at 3, which is what Bombora suggested for my water quality (very good). The flow is slower than the tap, but reasonable considering the tubing size.

    I would suggest getting some test strips and testing your water at a lower bypass %, (1 = 10%, 10 = 100%) then use it at the lowest bypass that gives good filtration, which should improve flow rate, provided you can reduce it from 7. You could also try it to see if it improves before testing for water quality.

    When I first got the filter 2 years ago I tested the water and found it to be quite soft (Newcastle NSW) hence why it's was set to 70%.

    I did try changing the setting to see if it fix the problem, but it did not. The water pressure is fine when it 'kicks' back in... It's just I have to wait 60secs or longer for it to come back on....

    I'm starting to think I'm just going to have to buy another filter head.. does anyone know what the warranty period on these are?
