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:
$44.88
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?

Samsung DA29-00003F Refrigerator Water FilterSamsung DA29-00003F:
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

Lifespan (Water Usage):
500 gallons

Our Price:
$34.59

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

Just head over to our product page!
Orders ship same day!

Samsung DA29-00012B Refrigerator Water FilterDA29-00012B:
Filter & Refrigerator Model Overviews:

300 gallons

Our Price:
$63

How to Order:
Step right over here.
Orders ship same day!

Samsung DA29-10105J Refrigerator Water FilterDA29-10105J:
Filter & Refrigerator Model Overviews:
The final Samsung refrigerator water filter we offer is built to install directly on the water line feeding your refrigerator, rather than in the refrigerator itself.  Essentially, this means that this filter can be used with any Samsung refrigerator, whether or not it comes equipped with a water dispenser.

Lifespan (Time):
6 months

Lifespan (Water Usage):
530 gallons

Our Price:
49.99

Lowe’s Price:
No sign of this Samsung refrigerator water filter model anywhere on Lowe’s site.

Wal-Mart’s Price:
No sign of this filter at Wal-Mart, either.

How to Order:

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.

LG 5231JA2006B /LT600P Refrigerator Water Filter – Comparable Replacement by Tier1

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.

For help finding the refrigerator water filters or air filters you need, from Tier1 or any other brand that we carry, please call our customer service department at 1-800-277-3458.

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.

Tier1 refrigerator water filters are affordably priced and designed to fit into all major brands.  The Tier1 line of water filters provide you with the same great tasting drinking water, virtually free of stated contaminants, as the manufacturer models.  We are happy to be one of the exclusive distributors of this new line.

If you are a customer of ours, there is no catch and no action for you to take.  Your Tier1 refrigerator water filter is already on the way.

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.

If you have friends and family that have been impacted by the chemical spill and water contamination incident in West Virginia who are not yet a customer of DiscountFilterStore.com, we invite you to share the coupon code ‘Facebook5.’  This code will give them 5% off on their entire order.

Thank you again for your continued loyalty, and if there is anything else we can do to help you through this event, please feel free to call our customer service department at 1-800-277-3458.

West Virginia Water Contamination Situation: What You Need To Know


West Virginia Drinking Water Safety MapLate last week, a chemical spill rendered the drinking water supply of up to 300,000 residents in the Charleston, West Virginia area unusable.  This represents a massive water contamination situation that has had a steady place in news cycles for nearly a week.

With all the coverage and confusion, there is bound to be some misinformation about what is currently happening and regarding what West Virginia residents should do when the water contamination situation is given the relative all clear.

If you are a resident of the Charleston, West Virginia area, here is what you need to know. We encourage you to share this with anyone impacted:

1. Drinking Water Restrictions Will Not Be Fully Lifted For Days (As of Tuesday, Jan 14)
As of about 12:30pm EST today, drinking water has been restored to six zones in the Charleston, West Virginia area.  It could be days before all tap water is once again deemed safe.

Curtis Johnson HD covers breaking news for The Herald-Dispatch and is providing details regarding when new zones are being given the all clear via his Facebook and Twitter feed.

2. Why Is It Taking So Long For West Virginia Tap Water Restrictions to be Lifted?
The level of drinking water contamination in West Virginia is unprecedented.  West Virginia American Water is very methodically testing and turning water back on to ensure the greatest level of public safety.

Stocking Up On Safe Drinking Water In West VirginiaMore information and real-time updates can be found on the West Virginia American Water Facebook page.

3. What Will Happen If I Drink Any of the Contaminated Water?
Fortunately, while dozens have sought treatment from local hospitals for nausea and other relatively minor symptoms, no major illnesses have been reported.  Unfortunately, neither state nor West Virginia American Water officials are clear on exactly what the health implications are in regards to the contaminated water.

“Most people did not know a whole lot about this chemical [4-methylcyclohexane methanol or MCHM],” West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin said Sunday. “We’ve had to do a lot of research.”

Freedom Industries, the company that stored the chemical indicated that is has a low toxicity.  However, Jeff McIntyre, president of West Virginia American Water states that his agency cannot definitively say that drinking water is safe.

If you drank or were exposed to any tap water in West Virginia since Friday and are suffering from any symptoms including headaches or nausea, it is recommended that you call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 and consult with a doctor or physician as soon as possible.

4. Where Can I Get Drinking Water While I Am Waiting For Restrictions To Be Lifted?
The National Guard is manning several drinking water drop-off and distribution sites, a listing of which can be found on the WCHS website.

Note that in order to receive water, you will need to bring your own containers, plastic water bottles or pitchers, per information provided by West Virginia American Water.

Water Flushing Instructions for West Virginia5. What Do I Do When My Drinking Water Is Turned Back On?
Once your water service is restored, it is recommended that you flush your water lines as soon as possible.  The Charleston Daily Mail provides instructions for how to flush drinking water systems while the Herald-Dispatch provides details on what other appliances should be flushed, including icemakers and dishwashers.

Both West Virginia American Water and the Center For Disease Control also urge all impacted residents to change all water filters currently in use as soon as possible after this contamination situation ends – including refrigerator and icemaker water filters, faucet water filters, filters used in water pitchers or dispensers, reverse osmosis filters and shower filters.

All products linked to above are available at DiscountFilterStore.com – and all orders will ship within one day of order placement.  Through this month, we are also offering free shipping to all West Virginia residents.  Just use the code WV at checkout.

6. My Water Is Back On But It Still Has A Funny Smell and Is Discolored.  Is it safe?
Per information provided by West Virginia American Water, the rapid increase in water flow – common when water restrictions are lifted – can stir sediment within the main lines and create discolored water conditions. Odors, meanwhile – (ie a distinct ‘licorice’ smell) can be detected at levels far below the level that the CDC determines is protective of public health.

If you have any additional questions regarding the chemical spill and drinking water contamination in West Virginia, we would encourage you to visit the West Virginia American Water website for real-time updates.

We will also continue to link to relevant updates from our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages.
