I love this time of year. The air is warming up, the sun is coming out, and outdoor activities start up again. One of my most favorite things about spring is the start of baseball season. Not the baseball you watch on TV but the baseball my 12-year-old plays. I really can’t get enough of watching him play one of my favorite sports.
One thing I can get enough of, however, is the cost of bottled water. My son goes through SO MUCH water at practices and games that I swear he is going to float away. And when you are buying bottled water for $1.50 a pop at the ball fields, it adds up quickly. Not to mention the pressure he puts me under to buy him sports drinks, which I usually refuse because they are filled with ingredients that I just am not comfortable with.
But he plays hard and needs something to keep him hydrated and healthy.
In the past I have taken to carrying a case of bottled water around with me but that becomes such a hassle. Especially when the open case slides across the back of the van and water bottles end up rolling all over the floor of my van. I did buy him a jug cooler and would fill it up with water from the sink but he complained that it tasted “skunky”. While I’m pretty sure he has never tasted a skunk, I totally get where he is coming from.
Which is why I was so super excited to check out the Brita Universal Jug Filter!
The Brita Jug Filter makes it easy and affordable to keep your athlete hydrated, heck – it can even help keep the entire team hydrated easily!
The filter is only available online at www.homedepot.com and is designed to work with Coleman, Igloo and Rubbermaid jug coolers and comes with multiple adapters so it will fit whichever model jug cooler you have. It’s easy to install and makes tap water taste better. The filter removes the chlorine taste and odor from your tap water, making it much more enjoyable to drink. No more “skunky” water!
No matter how big your jug cooler is, the Brita Universal Jug Filter makes it easy to provide filtered water. It eliminates the expense, hassle and waste of bottled water, and helps make sure your athlete gets adequate hydration when they need it most. It also works great for construction sites and job sites where you need to provide water!
The Brita Universal Jug Filter fits on our BIG jug cooler and our smaller one.
Check out how easy it is to install:
Look inside your jug cooler and find where the spigot comes into the cooler.
Twist off the existing adapter.
Remove the spigot.
Find the correct Brita Universal Jug Filter adapter that fits on your spigot (do not actually attach it).
Replace the spigot in the jug cooler and twist the adapter on until snug.
Twist the filter onto the adapter.
Enjoy fresh, great tasting, filtered water and keep them hydrated without sports drinks or bottled water!
Brita believes that the jug cooler is an “unsung” hydration hero and so they are running a contest to help honor ALL heroes.
