Tucked neatly within the dog days of summer is National Dog Day, 24-hours set aside for recognizing those pooches in need of rescue, and ensuring the health and comfort of those we’ve invited into our homes.
In honor of today’s status as National Dog Day, and arguably, one of the first ‘dog days’ of the season, we wanted to share the videos below showing how some of our favorite dogs have beat the heat by mastering that all important invention – the fridge water dispenser.
While each video below is an exercise in adorability, our goal is not to bring attention away from the very real risk of dehydration during this time of year. Read More
For years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized August as National Water Quality Month, a time for us all to think about both the positive and negative impact we have on this resource.
We love the occasion, for obvious reasons, but oftentimes can find ourselves overwhelmed with seemingly endless ideas for how we can make and encourage positive change. In fact, this post comes at the midway point of the month, as it took just that long to whittle down our original list of 1,000 to a more manageable list of the five items below.
With that, here are five ways you can more effectively use water during the back half of National Water Quality Month:

Earlier this year, Los Angeles began replacing the chlorine it had used for decades to disinfect its drinking water with chloramine. The reasoning behind the change is two-fold: first, chloramine is more effective as a disinfectant over longer distances; second, chloramine is less likely to be the culprit behind the creation of potentially harmful Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs.)
While its use is becoming more of a discussion point, chloramine, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, has actually been in use throughout several municipalities for decades. If you live in Denver, in fact, chloramine has been used to disinfect your drinking water since 1917. Read More
At FridgeFilters.com, historically, August and September have been slower months. The reason? Per numerous comments from our customers over the years, when it’s time to send the kids back to school, a lot of other necessary errands simply get pushed to the side. One of these errands just happens to be replacing fridge filters.
At issue with this is more than just dealing with less-than-perfect water quality for a few extra weeks (although, why deal with this if you don’t have to?) But rather, the risk is that this period of a few extra weeks can quickly become a few extra months, as the end of back to school season runs smack dab into the middle of a whole host of business, including:
Remembering to revisit one errand that you’ve put off is easy enough, but trying to lump that one errand into an already overflowing schedule is something else entirely. Read More
Typically, whether your fridge filter is used with well water or city water, replacement guidelines will instruct you to change it every six months. But as we have noted previously, water usage is a big factor that can influence your filter’s lifespan.
As we move deeper into summer, it’s likely that your water and ice usage has increased significantly, as graduation parties, get-togethers and socials have taxed the fridge filter you trust to keep your drinking water clean and your ice clear.
Which brings us to where we are now. Late summer, after several events have come and gone, we are rapidly approaching a holiday that receives far too little attention: Father’s Day. Read More
Whether you order a fridge filter from Maytag, Whirlpool, GE or Tier1, you will undoubtedly see some note on the filter box or packaging instructing you to replace it once about every six months.
Of course, the six months is just a guideline that can be adjusted based on your ‘water quality and usage.’
Water usage is fairly easy to wrap your head around. If you have a larger family or household, you’ll use more water, which will naturally decrease the lifespan of your fridge filter. Water quality, on the other hand is a bit more complex of a variable. Read More

Maytag UKF8001 – Comparable Refrigerator Water Filter by Tier1
On January 10th, residents of Charleston, West Virginia awoke to find that their tap water was undrinkable and unusable.
An unprecedented chemical spill from a storage facility managed by Freedom Enterprises leaked up to 7,500 gallons of MCHM (4-Methylcyclohexanemethanol) – an industrial chemical used to separate coal from rock – into the Elk River, just under two miles from the area’s water treatment plant.
This week, residents are striving to get back to normal as tap water has been declared safe again in most areas. But after-effects, from odor to discoloration present in drinking water, persist in many homes. Read More
It’s amazing how quickly yesterday’s holiday feast can become today’s holiday leftovers taking up space in your fridge.
Once you reach that point, it becomes a race against time to consume the food before it spoils, lest it go to waste.

Fortunately, you still have time to get the refrigerator air filters you need to ensure joyous holiday feasts do not become unpleasant holiday odors.

There is a lot that you can predict over the holidays.
Your home will be full of guests.
Your fridge, pantry and water supply will all be raided by family and friends alike.
Your time will dash madly to the very last minute as you gather the holiday gifts and products you need – including refrigerator water filters, of course – to make the season a one-of-a-kind experience.
Unfortunately, not all holiday predictions result in a positive outcome. For instance, if you order the holiday gifts and products you need just one day too late, you can predict that there will be some unhappiness around your tree or your table. Read More
