If you are considering a UV disinfection system for your home or business, you undoubtedly have a whole list of questions. As such a system oftentimes requires a larger upfront investment, you may have questions related to UV disinfection system cost.
You may also have questions related to how UV disinfection system technology works, its level of efficiency and whether a UV system is truly more effective than disinfectant chemicals such as chlorine.
While the questions above are valid ones that we’ll try to answer below, the true determination regarding whether you need such a system can better be expressed in a checklist format, rather than an FAQ. For your reference, we’ve created just such a checklist Continue reading →
Look online for biking or cycling hydration tips and this is the one bottom-line theme that everyone, from professional dieticians to hard-core bikers can agree on.
But before we get to that bottom-line agreement, there are dozens of articles containing tips, factoids and stats that can make your head spin more quickly than your bike wheels could ever hope to.
In honor of May’s distinction as Bike Month, and this week’s distinction as Bike Week in our Minneapolis-area headquarters, we’ve gone out and found what we consider to be the most straight-forward, make-sense and definitive cycling hydration tips. Continue reading →
We are currently in the midst of Drinking Water Week, an occasion marked by the American Water Works Association as a time when water professionals forge closer connections with those they serve. While this is undoubtedly an important occasion, our team at DiscountFilterStore.com already adheres to this idea every day.
So rather than using Drinking Water Week to remind you of what you likely already know, we’re instead taking this opportunity to bring you closer to some of the lesser known products you may not be aware that we offer.
Better yet, all through Drinking Water Week, we’re offering the products below – and all products on our site, in fact – for 5% off! Continue reading →
Unless you know exactly what you are looking for, buying a new air conditioner or furnace air filter can leave you feeling as though you are swimming upstream in alphabet soup. As this Monday marked the beginning of Air Quality Awareness Week, a time set aside to learn how air quality affects our health, many of you are likely finding yourselves swimming in this soup as we speak.
Acronyms like MERV, MPR, HEPA and FPR surround you, while dozens of brands vie for your dollars and devotion. And this all happens after you find your existing air filter, which may or may not include the sizing details and model number you need to buy a comparable replacement. Continue reading →
[While we are always happy to offer discounts to our customers, oftentimes that tie playfully into weather and seasonality, we want to be sensitive to those in the southern United States – including hundreds of our customers - that are dealing with the aftermath of this weekend’s tornadoes.]
If you are able, we encourage you to make a donation to one or more of the rescue organizations linked to by The Weather Channel, here.]
As we hit the last few days of the month, April showers have settled over our Minnesota headquarters – and are in no hurry to leave anytime soon. Continue reading →
Today is Earth Day, and in homes and schools across the country, many will spend the day instilling a sense of environmental responsibility into their children or students.
While we commend these efforts, we can’t help thinking that Earth Day is far more important to be limited to just a 24-hour period. And that the best way to teach kids a little bit about responsibility is to have a little fun.
Every day, this list of hard to find filters continues to grow, as new technology is developed, new suppliers join our family or models are discontinued and/or assigned a new model number (check out our new Filter Finder for help in these situations.)
If we didn’t do everything possible to continue offering you the largest and most diverse selection of filters online, at the price and service level you deserve, we simply would not be doing our job. Continue reading →
Clean water is critical to the sustainability of every life on our planet. The awful truth, though, is that clean water is inaccessible by nearly one billion people, leading to more than three million deaths per year. A silver lining to this fact is that there is also an unprecedented opportunity to improve the lives of up to one billion people, and in a very real sense, save millions of lives yearly.
