2 years ago, on the blog, I called my father a camel and presented him with a 'fan cave' upgrade- the NewAir WCD-200W Water Dispenser. It truly can't be contested that my father demands constant hydration and the freshest tasting water; the water dispenser has proven invaluable in his baseball/football/UFC viewing room (aka the 'fan cave').
Many of my readers know this year has been an intense one for our family. Shortly after I was rear ended (at a complete stop, on the freeway) my father left the state to visit his parents for a family gathering. The trip turned into a 2 month stay after bringing my grandfather to the hospital just the day after he'd arrived. Clear across the country I did my best, car-less and unable to walk straight, to keep his home in order and look after things while he was away.
This was all ignoring the issue- in order to replace the water bottle with a full one, I would have to lift gallons of heavy water and position it in the dispenser cabinet. That was simply not about to happen. For me the NewAir WAT10W Water Filtration Bottle was a no brainier investment. For about $40 online I could order a universal self-filtering water bottle system that fit nearly any modern home or office water dispenser units. That's 211 gallons (or 9 months to a year depending on consumption) of fresh water for the cost of one easy to replace filter. No more heavy, expensive, awkward bottle refills.
Filtration Bottle arrived in a few pieces, but the instructions were extremely basic and easy to follow. I attached the float to the bottom half of the bottle by gently screwing until secure. (Be careful not to over-tightern.)
It's important the note that you should never fill the top half of the bottle when the bottom half water level exceeds the red marker on the front of the tank. The top of the tank is intended only to hold water during the filtration process and should not be used to store 'reserve' water in advance of the actual need for refilling.
What Daughter Says: As a young girl I hauled jugs of drinking water up the steps to our condo- no more back breaking clean water, thanks to this ingenious water bottle filtration system!
