All About Refrigerator Water Filters

Taking care of your fridge’s water filter keeps your water clean!

A refrigerator water dispenser is a neat refrigerator feature to have. For the past two decades at least, refrigerator water dispensers have been an excellent way to get a convenient drink of clean water. Every water dispenser comes with a water filter, and taking care of this filter is the way to continue having truly healthy drinking water. Here is information about refrigerator water filters you will want to know.

How Do Refrigerator Water Filters Work?

Typical refrigerator water filters use three steps in their filtration process. First is particle filtration, which helps filter out sizable debris that could come through the local well or municipal water system. Next, you have micro-particle filtration. This mechanism filters out crystals that can’t be seen. Lastly, you have chemical absorption filtration, which uses activated carbon to attract and capture molecules such as lead, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and chlorine. Refrigerator water filters work decently to remove contaminants that ultimately harm your health. 

How Often to Replace Water Filters

As a rule of thumb, one should replace the water filter every six months, as it is how long these filters are typically designed to last. When one neglects changing out the water filter, one will begin to experience more contaminated water, even if the taste doesn’t seem to change. You also might not be able to get the most water out of your dispenser, as the filter will begin to clog with debris. To make maintenance easier, one can set an automatic shipment of your particular water filter model to come to your house every six months. It’s as easy as changing it out only twice a year!

How to Replace a Water Filter

One should look up their refrigerator model to know exactly how to replace the water filter. All in all, one will need to locate the water filter cover, remove it, take out the old filter, properly install the new one, and replace the cover. Voila! Your refrigerator is set to continue dispensing clean and healthful water for the whole family.
