Yes. It is in tight but not attached. You have to work at it. The older models were easier to remove.

Cleaning: Brita® pitchers, dispensers and bottles are all very low maintenance when it comes to upkeep and care. For pitchers/dispensers, lid and reservoir simply hand wash with a mild detergent. Follow the same guidelines for Brita® filtering bottles.

Yes, it was just difficult the first time I think because of air pressure. I pressed in the side and it easily came out.

If your unit comes with an Electronic Filter Change Indicator it will tell you when to change it. If it doesn't have the electronic feature, Brita gives new registrants a coupon good for up to $2 off toward a filter purchase when they sign up on their site (http://www.brita.com/your-brita/filter-reminders/) and will send personalized filter reminders. If you prefer to have your reminder automatically inserted into your Outlook/iCal calendar you’ll be able to download the reminder directly to your calendar (most computer calendaring software is supported) after you register.
You can opt out from filter reminders at anytime.

the UltraMax unit has an electronic reminder that you start......pitchers have a reminder toggle you set to indicate when the filter should be changed presuming you've used the amount of water it's se to filter.

All Brita® filters are BPA-free and keep your water tasting great. Brita® pitcher and dispenser filters reduce chlorine (taste and odor), mercury and copper†. Brita® Bottle filters reduce the taste of chlorine. Brita® faucet system filters reduce chlorine (taste and odor), lead and particulates. Various package sizes are available.
