JBL Reflect Earbud headphones
Sweat proof ergonomic design.  With a 5 hour rechargeable battery and a reach of about 40 feet, the JBL Reflect BT’s key benefit is the design of the ergonomic eartips along with the built-in magnets which keep your buds on standby without loose cables.

Gift Guide: Aquasana Powered Water Filtration System

Written by lyricsmama on December 4, 2014 – 8:23 AM -

giftguide1-1024x817

This past summer, you may have heard about Toledo Ohio being in the news because of our water situation. Lake Erie had an abundance of algae bloom which got into our water system, and for 3 days made the water unusable. Meaning it wasn’t safe to wash with, wasn’t safe to ingest and boiling it only made it worse. This opened my eyes to what’s going into our water, how they’re treating it, and how we can keep ourselves and our families safer.

You see, in order to get the algae down, they have to put more chlorine and chemicals in the water. Now how safe can that be for our bodies? This made me want to look into other things I could do for our family to make our water safe.

Aquasana send me their Powered Water Filtration System to help me out, I couldn’t wait to try the unit and see what the difference was between having it filtered at home, and the stuff coming from the tap. Because of the abundance of chlorine in the water, for a while you could see a film on top of any of the tap water….I was NOT drinking that! I wouldn’t even let my animals drink that, there shouldn’t be a film on top of your water, this could not be healthy!

aquasana

This counter-top pitcher filtration system is streamlined and modern design, so sitting on our counter-top doesn’t make it look out of place, and it’s slim enough to fit in a smaller spot not taking up a whole heck of a lot of room. The unit also comes with two pitchers. Once that should be filled and kept in the fridge for cold water, and the other is a counter-top unit that stays put, and can be used daily at room temperature. My kids love this option because they can easily get their own water directly from the system, just adding ice cubes to their cups for cold.

My only real complaint is that the system is noisy, it makes a loud noise when filling the pitchers, and it does tend to leak a little, but it’s nothing that stops us from using it on a daily basis.

I did notice as well that the film on top of the tap water was non existent once it came out of the Aquasana unit as well.

The Aquasana powered water filtration system is the world’s first pitcher filter system to use power in order to provide clean, fresh water-fast. It reduces contaminants 10x more than the leading drip pitcher filter, it filters in seconds! No more waiting for that slow drip filter to trickle through, it also retains beneficial minerals for health and taste.

Aquasana using a patent-pending ClaryumTM filtration technology that quickly forces unfiltered water through a dense filter block which gives you ultra-pure filtered water in just seconds. The water tastes great!

The Aquasana Powered Water Filtration System is tested by NSF International, the gold standard for water filtration, to reduce 60 harmful contaminants from drinking water including lead, mercury, asbestos, giardia, cryptosporidium, herbicides, pesticides and over 96% of chlorine and chloramines, in just seconds.

The Claryum filter in the Aquasana system lasts about 6 months or about 320 gallons of water.

We love our Aquasana system, it’s helped me feel better about the water we’re drinking in our home, and keeps the plastic bottles out of our household which in turn saves us some money too!

For more information about Aquasana or to purchase one yourself (it would make a great holiday gift for someone) visit Aquasana.com.
