Brita Pitcher: Maximum Fill Level

Owning a Brita pitcher is a bit different from owning a normal water pitcher. The pitcher is formed of two sections, and a filtration process sends water from the top reservoir into the bottom section.

Tap water slowly filters through the pitcher, and if you try to add too much water, too fast, you might end up overfilling the jug.
