“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 Gard’n Gro Garden Filter System

Rainshow'r Gard'n Gro Garden Filter SystemWe have the door open at our building today, and I can hear the beautiful sound of birds chirping as I type right now. I think it’s safe to say that spring is in the air – which means, it’s time to start planting your garden.

The official date of the start of spring is March 21 – only three days away. With that in mind, we’ve picked the Rainshow’r Gard’n Gro Garden Filter System as this weekend’s special deal. It’s a completely non-toxic de-chlorinator, which is just a fancy way to say that it removes 85 percent of the chlorine from your water, promoting healthy plant growth and nutrition and enhancing the effectiveness of non-chemical pest control methods. Chlorine can have toxic effects on plant growth. If you prefer growing your garden naturally, without the presence of toxic pesticides and harsh chemicals, this filter is for you. In addition to being an effective de-chlorinator, the Rainshow’r Garden Filter System also features an all-white, UV-resistant, molded polypropylene body, making it better able to withstand prolonged sun exposure.

Please note that this filter is not intended for use with drinking water. It is specially designed to remove chlorine, but does not remove particulates and other water contaminants. This garden filter is also not recommended for use with fish ponds. FiltersFast offers a wealth of options for filtering your drinking water. See our Buyer’s Guide on Home Water Filters for more information.

This weekend only, purchase your Rainshow’r Gard’n Gro Garden Filter System at a special discounted price of $44. This offer begins today at 4 p.m. and ends Sunday night at midnight, so order now and start planting just in time for spring!

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)!
