BENTON HARBOR, Mich., July 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- This July, Whirlpool Corporation is celebrating "Change Your Refrigerator Water Filter Month" — an initiative started in 2009 to remind consumers to change their refrigerator water filter every six months to ensure they receive the fresh, filtered drinking water.

A regularly changed refrigerator water filter is necessary for keeping common contaminants out of your ice cold glass of water. Why settle for "good enough" water when changing your filter regularly will give you deliciously fresh water?

While not all contaminants are found in every glass of water, filtered water is the best option for busy families looking to drink their daily glasses of water without breaking the bank. In fact, by changing your water filter twice a year, a refrigerator water filtration system can filter the equivalent of 3,000* bottles of water, saving up to $600 a year versus purchasing the same amount of a leading brand of bottled water.

To celebrate Change Your Refrigerator Water Filter Month, Whirlpool is offering discounts and free shipping at http://whr.pl/iEX0H3 throughout the month of July. Consumers can receive 15 percent off the purchase price of one refrigerator water filter with the code JULYH20 and 25 percent off of the purchase price of two or more filters with the code MULTI25.

"Over time, refrigerator water filters will lose the ability to remove contaminants, which is why we remind consumers in January and July to change their refrigerator water filters," said Wendeline Ortiz, filtration category manager, Whirlpool Corporation. "Clean, filtered water is good for the whole family and we want to be sure the water and ice from your refrigerator remains fresh."
