Hello there, Jack! This is Madison with Brita. We recommend following the Pour Through User Guide to learn more about the uses of this pitcher. For our Advanced Filter, it is important that you push it down firmly into the reservoir. We hope this information is helpful! - Brita Consumer Services

Best way is to follow the instructions step by step. Here's what I do---find a clean boiling pot or a clear coffee pot to fill enough tap water so the water level will engulf the new filter.

Here's what I do---find a clean boiling pot or a clear coffee pot to fill enough tap water so the water level will engulf the new filter. Make sure u can place and retrieve the filter quite smoothly into the water without tilting or disturbing the water and filter. Let it sit for 15 minutes then remove it slowly, the same way u placed it inside. Place the filter into the Brita pitcher all the way down---the 2 notches should firmly sit flatly on the bottom of the orifist. (Do a dry practice in placing the filter inside) that eliminates the guesswork afterwards. After fitting the filter correctly; softly turn on water and fill the inside (not on filter) top container. The water will filter through and fill the clear bottom of container. Repeat process until bottom is 5/8 full. Do not add more water. Hope this helps. FYI, they now sell improved filters --- granule free. see less Best way is to follow the instructions step by step.

You have to put the filter in it. Pretty self explanatory. Fill and empty it a few times. Then you are good to go. Super easy.
