“Water Eggs” and Weekend Deals…

Aquaovo egg shaped water filter systemThis weekend’s discounted product feature is the Pentek QC10-SED Water Filter Cartridge. This inline filter cartridge reduces sediment down to the 5 micron level in your drinking water and is compatible with any Pentek Q10 system that uses a quick change, 10-inch water filter system. We will be selling it this weekend only for $14.99 (regularly $17). The sale will start this afternoon, so keep your eyes peeled!

Since the specifications on that filter cartridge are pretty simple, we have also decided to highlight another product line that was recently featured in the news: the Aquaovo egg-shaped water filter.

While we don’t currently carry any filtration systems quite like this, we thought the design concept was worth talking about. Aquaovo vessels are made of chemical-free porcelain with lead-free glazing. The filter cartridge, which contains filter media made of carbon, quartz crystal and ceramic pellets, is made from hand-blown, lead-free Pyrex glass. Very little plastic is contained in the unit, itself, making Aquaovo an environmentally-friendly alternative to bottled water (which, as you know, we fully support). What’s more, the system is aesthetically pleasing, easy to clean, and effective at reducing most impurities. While I’m not sure I’d use it as an everyday home water filter, it is the perfect water dispenser for special events such as weddings or corporate parties; it requires no plumbing attachments, using gravity as a filtration mechanism, and it is able to hold up to 11 liters of water at a time.

Aquaovo is currently on sale in Canada, the United States and parts of Europe. The concept for this four-stage filtration system was inspired by the idea that when liquid is stored in an egg-shaped vessel, it encourages the water molecules to move, and when water moves, it apparently tastes different. I’m not sure I’m sold on that idea, but if it’s true, it could be an inspiration to water filter manufacturers and designers worldwide.  If you’re interested in having us test out this theory in one of our upcoming Filters Fast YouTube videos, let us know in the comments section below. In the meantime, let all your friends know about our weekend special on Facebook and Twitter!

Weekend Special: Rainshow’r Chlorine Shower Water Filter

Our Monday “deal of the day“, which premiered on our blog a couple of weeks ago, has now evolved into a “weekend special.” Stay tuned in to our blog every Friday afternoon to find out which of our products we’ll be offering to you at a special discounted rate.

Rainshow'r Chlorine Shower FilterThis weekend’s special is the Rainshow’r Chlorine Shower Filter. We figured that with daylight savings time coming up this weekend, that you might be spending a little more time outside in the coming months, and as hotter weather approaches, you may be inclined to shower a bit more frequently. With more frequent showering comes more frequent exposure to chlorine which can be toxic in large doses. Studies have shown that people absorb more chlorine in the shower than they do from drinking chlorinated water. Chlorine in your shower water can cause dry, irritated skin, dry and damaged hair, and even asthma and other respiratory problems. This inline shower filter removes excess chlorine from your water, leaving your skin and hair soft, healthy and clean, and leaving you and your loved ones healthier.

This filter is easy to install; it attaches to existing shower plumbing and any standard or hand held shower head. No tools required.

From now until Sunday, March 13 at midnight, you can purchase this shower water filter on sale for only $22.99 (regularly $30.00)!

The “Sponge Bob” Crane Ultrasonic Humidifier

Sponge Bob Crane Ultrasonic HumidifierSponge Bob has access to plenty of moisture in his “pineapple under the sea,” but that’s not the case for many of us humans, especially if we live in dry environments. A humidifier is essential to creating a healthy indoor climate. It supplies moisture, providing relief for dry skin, chapped lips, and symptoms associated with cold and flu, including nasal congestion, sinus irritation and dry cough.

The Sponge Bob Crane Humidifier is great for children’s rooms and nurseries to assist with a child’s breathing during cold and flu season and to protect them from problems related to low humidity.  This humidifier features a removable water tank that holds up to a gallon of water, and an auto-off safety function for when the tank becomes empty. A control knob at the top of the unit can be used to regulate the mist output. The Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier runs quietly, is energy efficient, and able to supply moisture for up to 12 hours.

Hurry and don’t wait to purchase the Sponge Bob Humidifier from FiltersFast.com!
