Brio provides premium filter cartridges that remove countless contaminants commonly found in tap water, such as sediment, chemicals, and an endless list of organic and non-organic contaminants, so tap water is transformed into a premium hydrating experience that is free from most chlorine taste and odd odors. While the filters are long-lasting, they don't last forever.


We recommend replacing your filters every six to eight months. We base this recommendation on usage, which determines the cartridge lifespan. Whether you should replace your filters at six or eight months is determined by how much you use it. For example, if the cooler is located in a business, where employees and customers use it, the owner should replace the filter every six months to ensure to maintain the quality of the water.

Signs You Should Change Your Filters

Keeping track of the lifespan of your water filters can be troublesome without obvious signs that your cooler needs maintenance. However, we're using technology to track the lifespan of your filters for you.

We've developed the Filter Replacement Indicator Light, which makes it very easy to know when your cooler requires filter replacements. Located on the display panel of select coolers, the light comes on towards the end of the cartridge lifespan.
