Filters are good for 40 gallons of water which we would expect the average family to drink over a 2 month period. This corresponds to approximately 2 full Soma jugs per day (or approximately 1 Soma jug per day). If you need to tweak your next filter, this is your way! Check out our reallocation feature in your account.
The carafe itself can be hand washed with a soft sponge, but to keep the handle clean, avoid getting it wet and greasing it with mineral oil once a month. Mold is something we don’t see often, especially when the soma is washed regularly.
Yes, we think so. Soma’s fight against Brita depends on your taste. Brita replacement filters cost less and probably remove dirt better. The problem with all water filter jugs is that none are perfect.
Take the filter bag and filter out of the container. Before using Soma, soak the filter for 15 minutes, rinse 23 times with fresh water and place it on the bottom of the tank. Attach the filter to the container. Please don’t put it there.
Bottle: Hand wash in warm soapy water or in the top rack of the dishwasher. Do not remove the cover. Store without a cap. Lid: Hand wash only.
Soma’s new water bottles are as thin as his pitchers. The bottles hold 17 grams of water (the perfect size). It is made of BPA-free shatterproof glass and is covered with a thin silicone cover. There is also a dishwasher (near the lid).
We also like that each case is unique due to the natural variations in color and grain and that each case is treated with mineral oil to protect and keep it shiny. It is still necessary to replace the cartridge filter every now and then, but it is not necessary to recycle it.
Fill the pot to the brim with warm, diluted bleach. Let it sit for a few minutes to loosen the seal and disinfect the jar. Quickly drag the pitcher over a tub or sink and turn it upside down. The force of the water pushes the tank out of the jug.
Part 1 Remove from the jug, remove the lid and wash. Remove the lid from the pitcher and wash it in the sink with warm water and your usual dish soap. Remove the filter and set it aside. The filter does not need to be washed, but if desired, rinse it with warm water. Remove and wash the container.
