    Hell, my work has filtered water in the break room... and I have a filter on my fridge.

    Save your Britta for cheap vodka and then infuse it with your favorite stuff. That is what I plan on doing.

    I've got a PUR filter on the tap and filter that through a Brita filtered storage container that I keep in the fridge.

    I don't know how I wound up with both but, there it is.

    FIGHT THE POWER!!!!
    The thing is idiot-proof.
    It's got a light that blinks green about a second after turn the faucet on.
    The faucet mount Brita has a switching lever on it.
    You can choose "Brontosaurus Tap water regular flow" or "Terrradactyl Tap water spray flow" or "Brita filtered water".
    The green light, I guess, will turn red when all of the charcoal/unicorn hair filter needs changing.
    Like I said, I got silver, because it's a big thing attached to you faucet and could be an eyesore. Siver matches the faucet and stainless sink I have...also it could get in the way of washing dishes...I only wash shot glasses and cashmere bikinis in my sink so it doesn't get in my way.
    Now that the plumber is going to replace the broken-off(I didn't do it) shut off valve under my kitchen sink, I am going to seriously consider an undercounter water filter...but for now, the Brita will do.
    The real trick will be finding a shower filter that doesn't take all of my water pressure away.

    The water in downtown LA is sulpher-y and I'd like to not have to smell it...ever.

    **I was kidding about the shot glasses and bikinis...the unicorn hair is real, though.

    I don't know if this is an indication that my water's crap, but I can only seem to get 2 weeks out of a brita before needing to change it

    Now that I re-read my answer. I see that I didn't actually answer your question.
    The green light should last 6 months give or take.
    It's just me and my 12.8 lb Miniature Pinscher in my place so I expect the filter to last a while.
    I get the feeling you may have many minions, followers, groupies and/or bodyguards at your beck and call so you may have to change the filter more often than I do.

    I don't know... I was reading some tests and Brita filters were one of the worst. Well, if they are good enough for you I guess it's ok. If you have an opportunity to actually test the Brita water, you could try and see how much bad stuff is still left. There is no filter that makes the water 100% clean, but some of them remove the bad taste and still leave lots of bad crap in it. It's more or less tasteless... but it corrupts your sperm every day...

    Minions and followers??? Heh.. I wish. But I guess between me, lil' Chupa (our chupacabra), the bearded lady, lobster boy and the midgets, OH YEAH and the ghost of fat Elvis, I guess we do use our fair share of aqua around here.

    my Mom got me one of these for last christmas:


    pimag aquapour

    It works great on Las Vegas water (which is horrible!), and each filter lasts about 6 months.
