How Often Should I Change My Samsung Refrigerator Water Filter?


Samsung Refrigerator Water Dispenser[Need help finding the right Samsung refrigerator water filter?

If you have a Samsung refrigerator in your home, you are part of an exciting new revolution.

Last year, CNNMoney reported that Samsung – known primarily for its Smartphone technology – aims to improve from the #5 to the #1 home appliances provider by 2015.  First-hand, we can report that these goals appear to be on track, based solely on the sheer volume of Samsung refrigerator water filters we send out the door.

But fortunately for you as a consumer, the volume of Samsung refrigerator water filters is related to units sold, not model numbers offered.  In total, we offer five filters that fit into most Samsung refrigerator models, meaning details regarding how often they need to be replaced can fit onto a small crib-sheet.

Below, find just such a crib-sheet, sharing the types of Samsung refrigerators these filters are designed for and details on their lifespan.

On this crib-sheet, we also show you just how much we can save you on genuine OE Samsung refrigerator water filters when compared to two competitors, Lowe’s and Wal-Mart, both of whom prove to be anything but competitive:

Samsung DA29-00003G Refrigerator Water FilterSamsung DA29-00003G:
Filter & Refrigerator Model Overviews:
By far, the most popular Samsung water filter we offer, this model will fit into refrigerator models that use a short and round filter.

This filter is also meant as a replacement for the discontinued DA29-00003B model.  Visit our product page at the ‘How to Order’ link below to see more than a dozen additional model numbers that this filter is designed to replace.

Lifespan (Time):
6 Months
Any longer and you risk water based contaminants building a home in your filter.

Lifespan (Water Usage):
300 gallons
If you have a larger family of four or more, or live in an area with sediment-heavy well water, we recommend bumping up your replacement schedule to 1 – 3 months, based on your water tastes.

Our Price:
$39.99

Wal-Mart’s Price:
$44.88
The store that promises to save you money so you can live better wants $5 more per filter!

Lowe’s Price:

In fairness to Lowe’s this is the price for the discontinued DA29-00003B.
Maybe they’re bumping the price up by offering this as a collector’s item?

Filter & Refrigerator Model Overviews:
Like the DA29-00003G, this filter model fits into Samsung refrigerators that use a short round filter.

The difference between the DA29-00003G and the DA29-00003F is a slightly higher price for the DA29-00003G of about $5.  With the added cost for the DA29-00003G, you also see a reduction in nearly a dozen more contaminants, including asbestos and mercury.   However, the DA29-00003F will last for about 200 more gallons of usage, on average, so there are certainly benefits to both models.

Lifespan (Time):
6 Months

500 gallons

Our Price:
$34.59

Lowe’s Price:
If they offer it at all – they don’t offer it online!

530 gallons

How Often Should I Change My Maytag Refrigerator Water Filter?


Maytag UKF8001 Refrigerator Water Filter
Maytag UKF8001 Refrigerator Water Filter

[Need help finding the right Maytag refrigerator water filter? 

Call our customer service team for help at 1-800-277-3458 or enter your filter model number, refrigerator model number or refrigerator style into our Filter Finder. ]

For up to six months, or 750 gallons of water usage, the Maytag UKF8001 refrigerator water filter will give you clean tasting water and ice.

The Maytag UKF7003 refrigerator water filter will also last for six months, but only for 416 gallons of water usage.

The Whirlpool 4396841 and Kenmore 4396710 water filters, ideal for use in several Maytag refrigerator models, will last for six months and 200 gallons of water usage.

The four models listed above are four of our most popular Maytag refrigerator water filter offerings, and a great example of just how difficult it can be to accurately predict a filter’s lifespan.  At DiscountFilterStore.com, we send a reminder to our customers every six months that it’s time to replace their filters – but honestly – this is a bit of an educated assumption based on typical water usage and consumption in American homes.  As we’re well aware, American homes are anything but typical.

Maytag UKF7003 Refrigerator Water Filter
Maytag UKF7003 Refrigerator Water Filter

According to the EPA, the average American family uses more than 300 gallons of water per day at home with 70 percent of this use occurring indoors.  While the amount of water consumed per day from a refrigerator dispenser is a bit harder to determine, we can share some typical water consumption data that can help us make a rough determination:

  • Percent of adults that drink the recommended 8 glasses per day – 22%
  • Percent of adults that drink 0 glasses per day – 7%
  • Percent of adults that drink 1 – 3 cups – 36%
  • Percent of adults that drink 4 – 7 cups – 35%

Based on the data above, courtesy of the CDC, it seems safe to assume that most adults drink about four glasses of water per day, sized at about 8 oz.  Let’s assume that two of those glasses of water are consumed at home, courtesy of the water dispensed by their Maytag refrigerator.

If we look back at the water capacity of the filters in our example, anywhere from 200 to more than 700 gallons, it can be tempting to say that a single Maytag filter has enough capacity to last for several years based on its capacity.  So why the six month guideline – rather than say – 12 or even 24 months offered by more industrial models?

4396841 Whirlpool Refrigerator Water Filter
Whirlpool 4396841 Refrigerator Water Filter – For Use In Many Maytag Refrigerator Models

To put it in scientific terms, after a fair amount of use, refrigerator water filters just get gross. You don’t really want to be drinking water from a filter that has had stuff sitting in it for months, especially since carbon – the media used in most refrigerator water filters – is not designed to filter out the tiniest of particles, bacteria and viruses.

So if six months is simply a guideline, and water capacity is more of a lab exercise, what is the best way to determine when it’s time to change your Maytag refrigerator water filter?  One simple word – taste.

Quite simply, the job of your refrigerator water filter – whether manufactured by Maytag or any other brand – is to improve the taste and clarity of your water and ice.

4396710 Whirlpool Refrigerator Water Filter
Whirlpool 4396710 Refrigerator Water Filter – For Use In Many Maytag Refrigerator Models

If after three months, sediment or off-flavors return to the water dispensed by your refrigerator, it’s time for a change – regardless of how far off you are from the six month lifespan.  Note that for homes with water quality issues, or homes that depend on well water, this is not an uncommon scenario.

On the other hand, if your filter has been performing for well over a year without incident or change in water quality, there may be little or no reason for you to replace the current filter you are using.  Though, we may suggest a water test kit, just to ensure you know what contaminants may be in your water that are impossible to taste or sniff out, including lead or bacteria.

If you are looking for more information on the lifespan of your Maytag refrigerator water filter, or need to reorder, please call our customer service department at 1-800-277-3458.

5 Scary Contaminants Easy & Affordable To Filter From Your Drinking Water


Scared of Drinking Water ContaminantsWhether you live in a larger city and pull your drinking water from a municipal source, or further out in well water country, you are undoubtedly being exposed to some form of contaminants.

Some of these contaminants are mad-made, such as chlorine, and are designed to clean and disinfect your drinking water.  Other contaminants, including rust and iron, are naturally occurring in the environment.  These contaminants are clever enough to sneak themselves into your drinking water before you turn on your faucet.

Bottom-line, many of these contaminants will make your water taste awful.  If these contaminants occur in heavy enough levels, they can pose significant risk for both short- and long-term health issues.

Fortunately, the most common drinking water contaminants are also among the easiest and most affordable to reduce, including:

ZD-010 ZeroWater Water Pitcher
ZeroWater Filtered Water Pitcher – reduces chlorine, lead and more for $34

1. Chlorine – perhaps the most common contaminant for those that live in the city and the most common reason many will complain that their water tastes ‘like a swimming pool.’  Livestrong quotes research indicating that most cities within the US treat their water with two to four parts per million to kill off any pesky bacteria.

While we can’t argue with chlorine’s ability to kill bacteria, we do take issue with some of the harmful effects of both short-term and long-term exposure, from dry skin and split ends from shower water at best, to risk of cancer and premature aging at worst.

Fortunately, most water filters are designed to reduce chlorine, including our new line of Tier1 refrigerator water filters – built for all major refrigerator brands – and as low as $20 per filter, dependent on your needs.  And if you have a fridge without a water dispenser, an affordable water filter pitcher from ZeroWater or faucet filter from Instapure will do the trick, without forcing you to exceed a $20-30 budget.

One more point on chlorine – as 50% of chlorine exposure comes from bathing – a good shower filter also makes for a wise investment.

F8-CHROME Instapure Ultra Faucet Filter System - Chrome
Instapure F8 Faucet Filter – reduces chlorine, lead and more for $27

2. Lead – Lead must have seemed like a really good idea at one time, as most lead in tap water comes from the corrosion of older pipes and fixtures, per the CDC.  Today, congress’s involvement is needed to keep this junk out of our water, via the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act that went into play earlier this month.

Lead cannot be smelled, tasted or boiled out of water, and the only way to know for sure if your drinking water supply contains this contaminant is with a water test kit.  Higher levels of lead can cause health risks including elevated blood levels, and these risks are significantly enhanced for the sick, young or vulnerable.

Like chlorine, many refrigerator water filters will help to reduce lead, including our Tier1 line.  More advanced faucet filters, including the Instapure F8 pictured, will also help to reduce lead while running just slightly higher in cost than entry level models.

Maytag UKF8001 Refrigerator Water Filter
Maytag UKF8001 Refrigerator Water Filter – reduces asbestos, lead, chlorine and more for as low as $36

3. Asbestos – while naturally occurring, the unique ability of asbestos to be resistant to heat and most other chemicals has historically led to its use in thousands of products, including cement pipe used to distribute drinking water.  Asbestos also has the unique ability to, over time, increase someone’s risk for developing intestinal polyps per the EPA.

As frightening as asbestos can be, it is also a fairly straight-forward contaminant to reduce.  One of the most popular refrigerator water filters on the market, the Maytag UKF8001, has been shown to reduce up to 99% of asbestos while setting you back just over $35 per filter.  And for those without refrigerator water dispensers, several undersink water filter systems, including the Pentek US-1000 system pictured, have been shown to reduce this contaminant before it makes it anywhere near your glass.

4. Iron – iron is naturally occurring in both groundwater and oxygen free reservoirs.  When exposed to oxygen, it is commonly responsible for drinking water discoloration.

Per the EPA, iron is not directly associated with adverse health effects.  That said, it will lead to water quality effects, from the aforementioned discoloration to an unpleasant metallic taste.

US-1000 Pentek Undersink Filter System
Pentek US-1000 Pentek Undersink Filter System – reduces asbestos, Cryptosporidium, Giardia and lead for $128

If you have heavy doses of iron in your water, chances are, you are already well aware.  Fortunately, a small investment in a countertop water filter system by Doulton, including their W9331032 UltraCarb, can get the taste and coloring of your water back on track.

5. Sulfur – rotten eggs.  If you smell it or taste it in your water, you’ve got sulfur.  Common in well water, the smell of sulfur does not always indicate a problem with the sanitation of your water. If left unchecked, however, sulfur can cause all manner of issues, including promoting the growth of other types of bacteria in your water supply.

Dealing with sulfur is a little bit trickier and pricier, so before making a filter decision, determine first where you are experiencing the biggest issues.  Because so much of the unpleasantness inherent with sulfur is with the smell, many are satisfied if the smell is reduced in their shower or bath.  If you fall into this category, a Culligan shower filter will meet most of your needs.  The shower filter pictured to the left is hand-held and even includes a massage feature!

Culligan Handheld Filtered Shower Head with Massage
Culligan HSH-C135 Handheld Filtered Shower Head with Massage – reduces sulfur odor and chlorine for $48

On the other hand, if you have sulfur issues throughout your home, you may be looking at an investment in a new system set-up.  If you fall into this category, take care to ensure that your new system will accommodate filters built for sulfur, like the HydroLogic Big Boy.  We would also recommend that you call our customer service department at 1-800-277-3458 to ensure you get the most affordable custom set-up possible.

New York City Tap Water: High Quality or E Coli?


New York City tap water quality holds a special place in the hearts and minds of many.

Described as one of the most pristine beverages on the planet – New York City’s drinking water is considered by most as more than just tasty – but also healthy and safe.  Many even consider it the primary reason that food ranging from Brooklyn Bagels to a slice of New York City pizza is so hard to replicate anywhere else.

So why is it that when drinking water was tested in twelve buildings in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, eight buildings tested positive for coliform bacteria, and five tested positive for E. Coli – making the water unfit for human consumption?  The answer lies not in the water’s source, but in the journey that tap water must take before it pours through a faucet to become drinking water.

This week, The New York Times published the results of a troubling investigation, a video of which you can see above.  The investigation, which provided the results of drinking water tests from the aforementioned twelve buildings, shared the path that water must take before transforming into hydration for residents.

While New York City’s tap water may begin as a high quality beverage when it is gravity pumped from crystal clear waterways upstate, it still must travel through miles of pipes – some of which are the pipes in classic New York City apartment buildings.

“Lead is the most common reason that you run into a water problem in New York,” says occupational medicine specialist Marc Wilkenfeld, M.D., director of the Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola.  For those that live in older buildings, with plumbing to match, lead is a clear and present danger every time a water faucet is turned on.

WS-425W WaterSafe Water Test Kit
Tests tap water for lead, bacteria and more

Lead is one thing, but E. Coli is a completely different matter.  As shared in the video above, fecal matter from animals is the one and only way for E. Coli to exist.  Everything from deteriorated roofs on water tanks – the most common way for larger apartment buildings to store drinking water – to infestation by animals and even squatting by humans can all be contributors to this problem.

Here’s the frustrating part – to rid most New York City tap water from significant contamination risk would cost as little as a few hundred dollars.  This is the approximate cost of cleaning and disinfecting an apartment building’s water tank, which by regulation, should be happening at least once per year.

Instapure F8 Faucet Filter
Instapure F8 Faucet Filter – reduces lead

So what should New York City residents do?  It may seem like a small cost for the city to clean and disinfect water tanks (and it is) but demanding that the work be done is not something that will happen overnight.

Fortunately, there are several drinking water filtration options that are open to you – including faucet filters and refrigerator water filters – that we are happy to offer on our site.  And just so you don’t think we are veering into self-promotion, both types of solutions were endorsed in the article linked to above featuring Dr. Wilkenfeld’s insight.

Before you make a decision on the drinking water filtration system you need, we would recommend first investing a small amount in a Water Test Kit.  While Dr. Wilkenfeld suggests that the results of these tests can be inconclusive, the kit pictured above represents a small investment (under $25) that will provide you with, in the experience of our team and our customers, enough actionable data to guide your filter decision.

If the only element of concern in your drinking water is lead, perhaps the most common impurity in New York City tap water, either a faucet filter system – like the Instapure F8 faucet filter above – or even a consistently changed refrigerator water filter – a common Samsung replacement filter from our Tier1 line is pictured below – will meet most of your needs.

DA29-00003G Samsung Comparable Refrigerator Water Filter Replacement By Tier1
DA29-00003G Samsung Comparable Refrigerator Water Filter Replacement By Tier1 – reduces lead

On the other hand, if your drinking water comes back positive for bacteria – or just comes out of the tap yellow – a slightly bigger investment is strongly recommended.  The Doulton countertop water filter system below is proven to reduce all but the smallest trace of E. Coli, while sitting tucked away in its own small part of your counter.  If countertop space is at a premium, the right combination of undersink water filtration system and filter – including this ceramic filter cartridge and ceramic filter housing from Doulton – can also help to reduce this harmful contaminant.

When deciding on a water filtration system, remember that all systems – and even all water filters – are built differently.  Always read through all of the specs offered on a system or a filter before you purchase to ensure it helps to reduce the impurities found in your own drinking water supply.  All packaging will include details on these specs, as will product pages on DiscountFilterStore.com.  If you suspect that your water could be unsafe to drink – whether due to smell, taste or odd yellow coloring – we recommend that you have it tested before and after installing a drinking water filtration system or filter.

Of course, if you have trouble finding what you need, you are always welcome to call our customer service team at 1-800-277-3458 with any questions.

Clean Drinking Water & Fresh Indoor Air For Less: Introducing Tier1 Filters


Maytag UKF8001 - Comparable Refrigerator Water Filter by Tier1

Maytag UKF8001 – Comparable Refrigerator Water Filter by Tier1

When did clean drinking water become a luxury, instead of a right?

When did fresh indoor air become something only the stuffy can truly afford?

When did a healthy home become such a burden to all but only the most privileged few?

At DiscountFilterStore.com, we are happy to start bucking this trend and put the healthy home back into reach for all, with our latest offerings: Tier1 refrigerator water filters and Tier1 air filters.

Tier1 refrigerator water filters are comparable to filters offered by original equipment manufacturers, including Maytag, Whirlpool, Samsung and LG.  They are built according to the same rigid specs to ensure you get maximum performance – or in plainer words – the cleanest tasting drinking water possible, virtually free of stated contaminants.

In regards to price, many of our more popular refrigerator water filter offerings – including the Maytag UKF8001 that fits into dozens of models by Maytag, Whirlpool, Amana, Jenn-Air, KitchenAid and Kenmore – are available from Tier1 for $5 less per filter.  Another popular offering, the LG 5231JA2006B/LT600P is available for greater than $20 less per filter.

Low price point, combined with maximum performance, even helped make it possible for us to bring some normalcy back into the lives of our West Virginia customers this week that are still recovering from a recent chemical spill and corresponding water contamination incident.  Each is being shipped a Tier1 refrigerator water filter, from DiscountFilterStore.com, free of charge.

Tier1 air filters, meanwhile, help to reduce the same type of indoor air contaminants – including dust, mold, smoke, pet dander and pollen – as more expensive offerings.   Like air filters from larger brands, Tier1 air filters are offered in 1” and 4” sizes.  Unlike air filters from major brands, Tier1 air filters are affordable for all – making it rare that you will put off swapping out an air filter until you are forced to by a thick layer of accumulated dust.

We encourage you to try Tier1 refrigerator water filters and air filters so you can see for yourself how easily clean tasting drinking water and fresh air can fit into your budget.  We are even happy to extend you 5% off on your order, by sharing a coupon code previously offered only to our Facebook followers.  Simply use the code ‘Facebook5’ when checking out.

We at DiscountFilterStore.com thank you for your continued loyalty and look forward to helping you build a healthy home for less, for years to come.

West Virginia Customers: We’re Sending You Free Refrigerator Water Filters From Tier1


West Virginia Drinking Water Safety MapLast week’s chemical spill in West Virginia, and its corresponding impact on the drinking water of nearly 300,000 residents, was unprecedented on a ridiculous scale.

As an online store that focuses heavily on providing the water filters that help reduce contaminants from the water your family drinks, it was extremely frustrating to sit back and watch.  Today, as bottled water distribution sites remain open and stories emerge over more chemicals that may have leaked into West Virginia’s drinking water above and beyond MCHM, it’s simply too difficult for us to sit back and do nothing.

Starting today, we are doing what we can to hasten the water recovery of our customers in West Virginia.  If you’ve ordered a refrigerator water filter from us in the last three months, we will be sending you a free refrigerator water filter from Tier1.

Replacing the water filters in your home, including your refrigerator water filters, is one of the last steps you will need to take to ensure the drinking water you serve is as safe as possible.  We are happy to help you finalize this last critical step and wish only that we could do more.

Tap Water – What a Deal!



Groupon, Living Social, Woot, ManDeals… It seems like every other day a new daily deal site is popping up! 
I don't know about you, but my inbox is positively flooded with deals for kids' art classes, spa visits, and teeth whitening. But hey–who doesn't love a deal?  We certainly do–we're the Discount Filter Store, after all!

Dollar symbolWhether you're searching for  a water filter for your fridge, a weekend getaway, or an LED kitty collar (yes, it's a real thing!), you'd probably prefer to buy your goods at a discount. Let's face it–with the price of gas hovering at a bajillion dollars a gallon pretty much everyone in the country but Bill Gates and Warren Buffet could stand to save a couple of dollars whenever they can, right?

By the way–you're going to love us for this–we found a way to get all of our daily deals and coupons in one daily email. JACKPOT! You've got to check out yipit.com (after you read this awesome blog post, of course!) You inbox will thank you.

Truth is, while you could join every deal site out there, you might be overlooking the easiest possible way to save money every day. And you don't even have to have an internet connection to get this deal, folks! It's right in your kitchen. You know, that cool, clean, live-giving fluid that come straight out of your faucet and refrigerator dispenser? That's right. We're talking tap water. Bottled water money

(Wait–before you turn up your nose at the thought of drinking from the tap, ask yourself when was the last time you changed your water filter. Hmmm?)

Tap water is just as clean and just as safe as bottled water…and at $0.002 a gallon is monumentally less expensive than the same stuff bottled water. (Did you know? 24% of the bottled water we buy is tap water repackaged by Coke and Pepsi.)1

Klean kanteenYes, you can buy a half-liter of Evian for $1.69. Seems cheap, right? But here's the deal. If the water we use at home cost what even cheap bottled water costs, our monthly water bills would run $9,000!


Put another way, if you bought and drank a bottle of Evian, you could refill that bottle once a day for 10 years, 5 months, and 21 days with  tap water before that water would cost $1.69. 


I don't know about you, but we here at Discount Filter Store think that $0.002 for a gallon is a pretty darn good deal. Consider this: a gallon of Hershey's syrup costs $13.23. Tobasco sauce–$94.46 a gallon. And a gallon of scorpion venom? That'll set you back a cool $38,858,507.46.2


There are lots of great ways to save dollars. Switching from bottled water to tap water might just be the easiest one. Just get yourself a refillable water bottle (we like this one from Klean Kanteen), fill 'er up, and carry on. Or Groupon. Or clip a coupon. 

Come on!
