It’s important to know exactly what you need before buying. That’s why we’ve put together a quick refrigerator water filter buyer’s guide to help you decide. Before you choosing your filter, research to find out which filters are compatible with your refrigerator model. This should help you narrow down the huge list on to just a few selections. Once you’ve narrowed it down, make sure you know what needs to be removed from your water and ice, and choose accordingly.

Attn. Residents of Drexel, MO: Reduce the Atrazine in your Water from Home

Dear Residents of Drexel, MO,

We heard about the herbicide problem in your water supply and thought it would be a good idea to write you and let you know that you don’t have to wait on your town’s Public Works Department to take action. You can reduce the level of atrazine present your water, straight from your kitchen sink.  And you don’t even need any special tools to do it.

Before we get into “how,” it’s a good idea for you to read the blog post we did a couple of months ago – “Sex Changing Chemicals in your Drinking Water,” – to find out why it’s so important that you rid yourself of this problem as soon as possible. We hear you’ve been relying on bottled water, which may seem like the answer, but as that blog post reveals, is in fact no better than drinking atrazine-infested tap water.

So go ahead and read that post. We’ll wait…

After reading that, you might be slightly worried, or very worried, which is perfectly natural. But there’s hope. As mentioned at the end of that post, we carry several brands of refrigerator filters, undersink water filters, and faucet filters that reduce levels of atrazine significantly. For your situation, we recommend a faucet filter, as these are the easiest to install. They attach directly to your faucet in minutes for fresh, great-tasting water straight out of the kitchen. Your neighbors will scratch their heads in wonder when they come over and see you drinking water from the tap.

Purchase a water filter online for a better price than you will find in stores, and we’ll ship it quickly, straight to your doorstep at an affordable rate. We hope you rest easy knowing that you now have access to clean drinking water.

Are you a bottled water addict?

Sure, we all love to go into a store and walk out with water sourced from a mountain spring, cove, lagoon, glacier or iceberg and then poured into a plastic bottle. One of the reasons so many people love bottled water is its convenience. It’s certainly easy to pick up a bottle at a gas station or grocery store, but bottled water is anything but easy on our wallets and our world.

There is nothing inherently wrong with bottled water in moderation. The real problem arises when you rely on bottled water as your only water source, and allow it to control your every action.

You cannot overcome your bottled water addiction until you realize you have a problem. Read through the following questions and see how many you can relate to.

  • Do you ever drink bottled water by yourself?
  • Have you ever lied about how much bottled water you drink?
  • Do you avoid places where bottled water isn’t served?
  • Do you regularly drink bottled water upon waking or before sleeping?
  • Does the thought of having to drink tap water scare you?
  • Do you find it impossible to live without bottled water?
  • Do you drink bottled water to have a good time?


How to Break Your Bottled Water Addiction

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a bottled water addict. Don’t worry, you can beat bottled water. Take up a new hobby to keep your mind away from it. Avoid places that serve bottled water, and also don’t hang around any “friends” that drink it.

But the best way to beat bottled water is surprisingly simple, and won’t even require you to take up fencing or shun your friends and family. Just filter your tap water.

What, you don’t like the taste of tap water? It might surprise you to know that many bottled waters are nothing more than filtered tap water, often taken from the same municipal water supplies that send water to your home. It’s probably more accurate to say you don’t like the taste of the chlorine disinfectant many municipalities use to rid your water of harmful contaminants.

Several water filters will remove chlorine, and many other contaminants as well. Consider purchasing a water faucet filter,  which mounts easily to your kitchen sink – no tools required. If your refrigerator comes equipped with a refrigerator water filter, ensure that you change it out regularly. If you want to have ice cold water at a moment’s notice, fill up a water pitcher filter  and throw it in your fridge.

Isn’t it actually more convenient to have water that you know is clean, healthy and delicious in your very own home?

“But I can take bottled water with me wherever I go,” you say.

With a Klean Kanteen water bottle, you can now take your filtered tap water with you wherever you go. These stainless steel water bottles are BPA free, which is more than we can say about many plastic water bottles out there.

Take comfort in knowing there are many others out there on the road to recovery. It’s a tough road, but one that is easily travelled with clean water and a Klean Kanteen. We’ll walk with you.
