Is Your Fridge Filter Ready For Father’s Day?

Dad Has The Clean Water He NeedsTypically, 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.

Notoriously difficult to shop for, most dads leave very few clues as to just what the perfect Father’s Day gift really is (side note: if we had to guess, we’d probably start by looking here.) While we can only venture a guess as to the perfect gift for your dad, we’d feel far more safe in making the assumption that dad just wants everything in the home to work properly on his big day. In other words, the minor annoyances and embarrassments should be held for one of the year’s other 364 days.

This is where fridge filters comes into play. On dad’s big day, the last thing you want marring it is the extremely avoidable issue of drinking water that tastes chlorinated, metallic or gritty. This goes double if dad expects company and triple if this water and ice will be served up in coffee and cocktails.

Today is Tuesday, July 10th – T-minus 5-days from Father’s Day. Our site offers nearly every fridge filter your refrigerator model could possibly need, including our own affordably priced private brand designed for all major manufacturers. We can even get you the filters you need by the end of this week, courtesy of our expedited shipping options.

If your fridge filter is just on the brink of replacement, we encourage you to browse the selection available on our site, using the filter finder found on our home page.

As we race towards a holiday that deserves more attention, celebrating the man that wants little more than some peace and quiet, good food, friends and drinks, ensure you’ve got the clean water on hand that you need to make this ultimate wish come true.

If you need help finding the right fridge filter for your needs, please feel free to call our customer service team at 800-683-8353.

You Would Remember That Roger Clemens…was the ex-Red Sox player, and all around questionable person, whose 354 career wins were still not enough to get him into the Hall of Fame.

You Would Remember That 45 Degrees…is equal to 1/8 of a circle, saving yourself much chiding from Alex Trebek.

You Would Remember So Much More Than Wolf Blitzer…who somehow managed negative $4,600 dollars – after just the first round of Celebrity Jeopardy!

You Would Remember That Archibauld Leach, Bernard Schwartz and Lucille LeSeuer…were the real names of Cary Grant, Tony Curtis and Joan Crawford, and not three people who have never been in your kitchen.  You would also have five extra minutes to watch the full, classic clip below from Cheers where Cliff Clavin gives this unforgettable answer.

My Refrigerator Smells…How Do I Fix It?

My Refrigerator SmellsBread, cookies and bacon.

The smells and odors coming from your kitchen should be pleasant and comforting.

Rotten meat, stale garlic and fish.

If your refrigerator smells like any of the less than pleasant smelling foods above, you can bake all the cookies you want but your kitchen is still going to emit a rotten odor.  And when it comes to rotten refrigerator odor, there’s only so much one can take.

What’s ironic is that sometimes, the healthier food you cook, the more unpleasant smells can emit.  Food like broccoli, cauliflower and the aforementioned fish are staples of a healthy plate, but can generate such strong and unpleasant smells that you may find yourself retreating back into a world filled with nothing but cookies and bacon.  (Or bacon-wrapped cookies, but that’s a topic for another post.)

If your refrigerator smells, fortunately, it’s fairly easy to determine why.  Most times, in fact, it simply involves leftovers that have been allowed to go bad or food that has found a way to leak through its packaging.

All Natural Disinfectant Spray RecipeOnce you determine the type of and source of the smell, the next step is to arm yourself with the right refrigerator odor clean-up and removal products, some of which may be purchased and some of which can be made at home with all-natural ingredients.  A recipe for a fool-proof, all natural refrigerator odor eliminator and kitchen deodorizer can be found below or in the image to the left:

  • 1 cup water
  • 20 drops lavender
  • 20 drops thyme or eucalyptus oil
  • 10 drops tea tree oil

Mix all the ingredients above into a spray bottle, empty all the contents out of your refrigerator, and give it a thorough spray and wipe down – hitting every corner and beneath every drawer.  When restocking your refrigerator, it goes without saying, throw away anything that looks as though it may have turned.

Gonzo Refrigerator Odor EliminatorIf refrigerator smells persist, baking soda or Gonzo odor eliminator (proudly offered by FridgeFilters.com) can act like a hungry magnet that attracts and swallows odors whole.

Following the steps above once per week, or once every other week, can help ensure fridge food odors rarely become an issue.

If your refrigerator odor is not food related, there are some other potential issues you may be experiencing.  The first, of course, is a malfunctioning part or leak.  If the smell resembles ozone, smoke or burning – our recommendation is to call a local service provider as soon as possible.

If your refrigerator is emitting a rotten egg smell, you may be due for a water filter change, especially if you use well water, commonly chock full of iron and sulfur.  If your refrigerator water dispenser is emitting an eggy smell, a filter change – along with a quick clean-up of the dispenser and tray with a lemon / vinegar solution – should do the trick.

On the other hand, if your refrigerator water smells metallic or similar to chlorine, you are likely experiencing the same issue as described above, just swap out ‘well water’ for ‘city water.’  The same steps for eliminating the smell are recommended.

What other refrigerator smells have you done battle with, and more importantly, how did you beat them? We encourage you to share your stories via a comment below.

Free Refrigerator Water Filters Are Being Sent To Our West Virginia Customers

Maytag UKF8001 - Comparable Refrigerator Water Filter by Tier1

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.  In addition to dealing with these after-effects, residents are also instructed, by the CDC and West Virginia American Water authorities, to flush their lines and replace all water filters – including refrigerator water filters.

This type of event robs us of our peace of mind.  While we at FridgeFilters.com may not be able to help our customers in the Charleston, West Virginia area fully regain this peace of mind, we do want to do our small part to help.

West Virginia American Water Map Providing The All Clear

West Virginia American Water Map. All Blue = All Tap Water Has Been Declared Safe

This week, we will be sending all of our customers in the Charleston, West Virginia area a free replacement from our Tier1 line of refrigerator water filters*. Tier1 refrigerator water filters are built to fit all major fridge brands and provide the same great tasting water, virtually free of stated contaminants. We are happy to be one of the exclusive distributors of this new line of filters.

If you live in West Virginia and have ordered a refrigerator water filter from us in the last three months, no action is required from you – your filter is already on the way.

We hope this helps to bring some normalcy back into your routine.

If you have friends or family in the Charleston, West Virginia area that have been impacted by the recent chemical spill, we encourage you to refer them to us.  Provide them with the code ‘Facebook10’ to use at check-out, and we’d be happy to offer them 10% off on your behalf.

If you have any questions, please feel free to connect with our customer service department at 1-800-683-8353.

We invite you to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or +1 us on Google+.

*Important note: refrigerator water filters from Tier1, or from any brand, are not designed to reduce MCHM, primarily because not enough is known about this chemical. Replacing refrigerator water filters is a necessary reactive step after MCHM has been cleared from the water source.

3 Reasons To Order Your Refrigerator Water Filters Before Christmas

Santa Claus Shopping For Refrigerator Water FiltersWe can tell you that over the previous week, and through the end of the year, sales for refrigerator water filters will take a natural dip.  After all, it’s much more fun to spend our holiday budget on the things we want, rather than the things we need.

We certainly understand the logic of waiting on commodities until after our yearly period of wants has ended.  That said, while it may be counter-intuitive, right now is truly the perfect time to get your refrigerator water filters order in.  Here are three reasons why:

1. Your Water Usage Will Go Up Over The Holidays
We send out reminders every six months to our customers alerting them that it’s time to change their refrigerator water filters.  While six months is usually a pretty accurate indicator of a filter’s lifespan, this is a lifespan based on typical water usage.  And there is nothing typical about anything over the holidays, a time when your filter will be working overtime to produce the volume of clean drinking water and ice you’ll need.

Bottom-line, ordering your refrigerator water filter now ensures that you’ll have a replacement on-hand after holiday water usage drives your filter towards a likely premature end.

2. The Deals Are There
As a water filter provider, we know that there are other things you have to spend your money on.  So we’re ready to make some deals.

Maytag UKF8001 Refrigerator Water FilterJust by reading this far down this post, in fact, you’ve discovered two coupon codes that we’re happy to share over the holiday season – ‘SOLDIER’ – offering 10% off for those of you that are veterans, current members of the military, or members of military families – and ‘FACEBOOK5’ – offering 5% off for anyone out there that has ever used Facebook.  Our guess is that most of you would fall into one or more of these groups this season!

3. We Built A New Website For Your Christmas Present!
Just this week, we were happy to launch a new and improved FridgeFilters.com.  The filters you need are now easier to find, specs and product descriptions have been brought up to date and our check-out process is a breeze!

This site was built especially for our customers – and quite a bit of feedback we’ve received over the years went into its development.  We hope you take some time to enjoy it this holiday season, use it to more easily find the refrigerator water filters you need – and, of course – to share any additional feedback you have with us!

7 Days Left To Get Your Refrigerator Water Filters By Christmas

Whirlpool 4396710 Whirlpool Refrigerator Water FilterThere 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.

At FridgeFilters.com, we want to do everything we can to make your holiday season predictably special.  Today marks the first in our series of countdown posts alerting you to how many days you have left to order and receive your refrigerator water filters by Tuesday, December 24th – better known as Christmas Eve.

Whether you are buying a refrigerator water filter to ensure your Whirlpool pours clean water and ice for your guests, a Brita faucet filter you hope will make a great gift for a water quality-challenged friend – or even a set of 3M Filtrete air filters for your furnace – you have until next Monday, December 16th to get your order in and receive prior to Christmas.  And remember – all orders over $75 will automatically ship free.

If you are looking for the refrigerator water filters you need, or even if you are looking for the perfect way to give the gift of clean drinking water to someone close, please call our customer service department at 1-800-683-8353.

FridgeFilters.com Purchases 10% Off For Military & Veteran Families – Every Day!

FridgeFilters.com - Veterans Day[On Veterans Day last year, we launched the promotion below, offering 10% off for all veterans, current military and veteran families - all day, every day.

With this week dedicated to celebrating our Independence, we thought it an ideal time to remind you of this program, and encourage you to use it if you are a veteran or currently enlisted, or share it with someone you know.

FridgeFilters.com thanks you for your service!]

You may notice that our post today sharing a veteran’s discount is unusual in that it is coming one day after we all celebrated Veterans Day.  A favorite holiday at FridgeFilters.com, Veterans Day is that one day per year where we honor the men and women courageously and selflessly serve our country.

With the arrival of this holiday, you no doubt saw several Veterans Day sales and promotions pop-up in your inbox and social channels yesterday.  Oftentimes, these Veterans Day sales, many of which last only through the end of the day, compete for space alongside the notes of gratitude from your friends and family members.

Today’s post is not intended to compete for space with heartfelt notes from family and friends. Today’s post is also not intended to promote a one-day or one-week sale. Today’s post is an announcement of a new and ongoing discount we will be offering on all FridgeFilters.com purchases.

Starting immediately, if you are a veteran, current member of the military or represent a military or veteran family, all purchases you make at FridgeFilters.com will be 10% off.  Simply enter the code ‘soldier’ when you checkout.

Don’t let our name fool you.  While we offer one of the largest online selections of refrigerator water filters, we also stock an enormous inventory of water filtration products ideal for those that find themselves moving frequently – from Culligan faucet filters, to Brita water pitchers, to heavy duty undersink filter systems.  These filtration products can be especially useful for those that find themselves stationed in areas with less than glowing water quality.

While we certainly understand that this is a very small gesture when weighed against the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform, it is our hope that it is meaningful enough to express our thanks and to ensure we all keep the needs of veterans in our thoughts more than one day per year.

If you are a veteran, current member of the military or are part of a military or veteran family, simply enter the discount code ‘soldier’ when checking out at FridgeFilters.com to take 10% off your entire order.   For any questions, please feel free to contact our customer service department at 1-800-683-8353.
