FridgeFilters Featured Customer: Great Expectations

Satisfied customer

Jay lives in Commerce, MI, a small town outside of Detroit where he likes to do a little woodworking on the side, making cabinets and other casings. Back in 2005, he bought a new refrigerator and when it was time to order his water filters he went online to search for the right part. He placed his first order with FridgeFilters.com, because “your site was the easiest to find the right model”. Now, six years later he still buys his water filters from FridgeFilters.

I asked Jay what helped us keep his business all these years. “It’s about the service you provide,” he explains, “I always get the right filter. Read More

Drinking plenty of water helps you stay healthy and alert. A recent study by researchers at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City that monitored college students found that students who showed mild signs of dehydration also reported they felt less energetic and focused.

Independent Investigation of Bottled Water finds unsavory results

Bottled water

I came across this article from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) where they tested 10 major brands of bottled water and found common chemical pollutants present in some samples. The report claims that bottled water from the Walmart brand (Sam’s Choice) and Giant Foods’ Acadia brand contained trihalomethanes, a disinfectant byproduct, in levels that exceed California standards for safe drinking water. The bottles tested came from manufacturing plants from several states, but some states tested far better than others. So what does it all mean?

First, you should know that the state of California has stricter standards for public drinking water than the rest of the country. Read More
