this looks to be electric, is that true? wont be able to use on sabbath

jew

How about if you just remove the battery? Or as I understand from the comments, the sensor also detects ho many times you refill it which you anyhow can’t do on shabbos so it might be okay to just use it to dispense…

I assume if you fill it before Shabbos it would be okay, since it’s already gone thru the filter, no? Any Halachic info would be appreciated!

This is from a website eretzhemda.org:

We are not familiar with the particular design of this filter. After consulting with Rav Yisrael Rozen, the director of the Zomet Institute, we were able to clarify the following principles:

[In order to know if your water filter is acceptable for Shabbat use, you have to find out what type of sensors is in your water filter.]

There is a type of electronic filter that has a sensor that continuously measures the filter’s status, which constantly changes according to the water quality. It measures the amount of water flow or the duration of water flow. A warning indicator turns on after a particular stage of operation.

If your filter has such a sensor, you would need to disconnect the sensor for use on Shabbat. The problem of Shabbat desecration is not limited to an indicator turning on due to a power interruption. Rather, there is a problem with the continuous electronic operation each time that the water is turned on.

In contrast, an electronic filter which contains an edge sensor is less problematic. The edge sensor only operates after sensing when the filter reaches a particular efficiency point. Only then does a light turn on. In such a case, using such a filter might be permitted since the chance that precisely at the moment of turning on the tap on Shabbat will the user get to a point of breaking the circuit is remote. This is similar to (using a device which has) a thermostat on Shabbat. If the chances are slim that the sensors will immediate turn on upon operation, many rabbis would allow such a filter.
By the way, there are types of water filters of which the water flow causes an ultra-violet beam to turn on and purify the water streaming into it, and therefore in many cases, water filters need rabbinical approval in order to ascertain that they may be used on Shabbat.”

I called Brita and the man told me that the Longlast filter (used with the extra large dispenser) only activates when water is being poured into the Brita, not when it’s being dispensed. He said their Stream filter also measures the quantity of the water and would presumably be problematic for dispensing as well.
(obviously not a psak, just passing along info)
