How to Reset a Brita Ultramax Indicator


For years, water filtration systems have come up with different methods for letting users know the filter needs to be replaced. Replacing the filters regularly is necessary for high water quality. The Brita Ultramax features an electronic filter change indicator to alert users to change the filter when it is no longer effective. The filter change indicator is battery operated and should last for approximately five years before the battery is exhausted.
