REFRIGERATOR WATER FILTER BUYING GUIDE: HOW TO CHOOSE A REFRIGERATOR FILTER
In recent years, the refrigerator with ice and water dispenser is more and more popular among homeowners, since it can offer cool ice or drink conveniently and save the trouble and money of buying the bottled water. But we must install a refrigerator water filter to ensure that the water and ice is healthy to drink.
Why do we need a refrigerator water filter?
Different from other water filters designed to remove unpleasant odor and some common sediment in the drinking water, the refrigerator water filters not only reduce chlorine while retaining the beneficial fluoride, but also eliminate other contaminants, such as particulates, rust, lead, cysts, asbestos, mercury and more, so that we can enjoy the crisp, tasty and clean water and ice cubes. Water plays a such a vital role in maintaining our life that we really deserve a premium water filter!
How does a water filter work? Why do we need to replace it regularly?
There is activated carbon located inside the filter, which is used as the filtration medium. Once the water flow through the water filter, the contaminant will be trapped immediately by the carbon. As the lifespan of the activated carbon stops purifying the water, or even becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.
When should we replace the refrigerator water filter?
Most manufacturers recommend that the filter should be replaced every six months to avoid the risk of drinking unhealthy water or ice. Actually, when to change the filter depends on the operating frequency and the quantity of contaminants in the water. Here are some reliable ways that can let you know when to change your refrigerator water filter.
- Accept manufacturers’ suggestion: replace your water filter every six months.
- Observe the indicator light. The refrigerators with a water or ice dispenser is often equipped with an indicator light which glows when the filter needs replacing.
- Keep an eye on the taste. If the water or ice tastes funny, you’d better change the water filter.
- Pay attention to the flow. When the water flow slowly or the icemaker produce very few ice cubes, you must realize that the filter is blocked and should be replaced.
