How do I clean my pitcher?

Hand wash your pitcher, lid, pour tray and removable filter cover (select models only) with mild, soapy water. Rinse well. 

Many of our pitcher and dispenser parts are also dishwasher safe. Check your manual for which parts can be washed in your dishwasher. If your pitcher has a change filter light, it will need to be removed prior to dishwashing. Watch our video on how to remove the change filter light.

How do I reset the filter change light?

Reset your Filter Change Light every time you replace your filter. To reset, press and hold the Filter Change Light for 5+ seconds.

Please note that the filter change light contains a non-replaceable battery. The battery will eventually stop working but the filter is still functional.

The Filter Change Light is an easy way to see when it is time to change your filter. Your light will change from green to yellow, and from yellow to red. This will inform you that your filter has reached the end of life at approximately 40+ gallons over 2 months of time.

Can I pour water out of the pitcher if there is water still in the pour tray?

Yes, if there is some water in the pour tray, but not full, you can pour water out of the pitcher without spilling. We recommend not to pour water if the pour tray is full or close to full.
