Does it surprise you that buying bottled a water for a year could cost you $600? At $1 – $2 per bottle it adds up quickly. Since Earth Day was earlier this week, Home-Tech needs to mention as well that 2 million tons of bottles get dumped into our landfills each year. (Only 23% of bottles are recycled.) We are going to recommend that you give up the bottle and try the refreshing taste of purified, ice cold water right from your refrigerator. As you know, Home-Tech knows a lot about refrigerators and their features since we sell and repair all the top brands. Most models now come equipped with an excellent water purification system.
Bottled Water Doesn’t Mean Pure
Many times bottled water is TAP WATER. If your bottle doesn’t say spring water on it, then chances are it’s coming straight from a municipal water source. Chemicals from the plastic bottles can also leach into a bottle of water as well. And, there is no regulation of bottled water by the federal government. A study done by the Environmental Working Group in 2008 found chemicals in every brand tested. You don’t have these concerns with a refrigerator purification system because you know exactly what is being removed from your drinking water.
Drink Up from the Whirlpool® Side by Side Models
The filter for the Side by Side Refrigerator Models (6ED2FHGXVA, 6ED2FHGXVQ, EC3JHAXRL, EC3JHAXRS, ED2DHEXWB, ED2DHEXWL, ED2DHEXWQ, ED2FHAXSB, ED2FHAXSL) reduces these common contaminants:
- Chlorine taste & odor
This filter does not remove beneficial flouride. And it’s best to change it every 6 months.
The Trickle Down Theory
If you buy bottled water and you don’t have a new refrigerator with a water purification system in it then consider the $600 a year cost savings (plus energy savings by getting an EnergyStar model).
