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.  Continue reading →

Why Should Filtered Water Be Used In Coffee Machines?


Should Filtered Water Be Used In Coffee MachineMore than 400 billion cups consumed annually.

Grown commercially in 45+ countries.

Representative of 75% of all caffeinated beverages consumed in the United States.

Coffee is more than just a beverage.  It’s a powerhouse, economic-game changer and daily savior.  For a commodity this important, why is it that many will scoff at the sight of someone using filtered water to brew their daily cup?

Much of this likely has to do with the perception that heating water will kill off most forms of contamination and that the flavor of the coffee will mask any remaining issues.  Another perception is that city or municipal water is already perfectly safe to drink, so why fuss over what’s going into the coffee pot?  Continue reading →
