The short answer to this question is no. The BRITA water filter does not actually remove limescale from your standard tap water 100%.
Although the ION exchange pearls found inside the BRITA Maxtra+ water filters that are found in all of the latest BRITA water filters, help to reduce limescale significantly.
This not only improves the taste of standard tap water, the taste and aroma of coffee, tea and the food you cook it with, but also helps to reduce limescale buildup on your appliances.
So if you use water that’s been filtered through a BRITA water filter, you will find less limescale buildup on your kettle, iron, coffee machine, pots and pans.
