Did you know that if you have a refrigerator with an ice maker or water dispenser, you probably have a water filter? Newer refrigerator models usually provide water filtration and dispense ice and water through the door. This filtered water provides you and your family with great tasting ice and water. But the key to continue having the best tasting and cleanest filtered water is to follow a regular maintenance schedule for your fridge filter. According to The Public Health and Safety Organization NSF, "To ensure the filter continues to reduce contaminants, replace it according to the manufacturer’s recommendations." Therefore, we recommend replacing your refrigerator's water filter typically every six months or when the gallon capacity is reached.

How Do Fridge Filters Work?
Water travels through miles of piping before ever reaching your home or business. Along the way it may pick up impurities like pollution from the air, pharmaceuticals that get flushed into water supplies, or waste from manufacturing plants.
Refrigerator Filters use carbon block media to help reduce contaminants from your fridge's water line.
How Often Do You Replace Your Refrigerator Filter? Refrigerator's filter should be changed every six months. Old refrigerator filter cartridges can cause water to have bad taste or smell. Furthermore, old filters can even leak contaminants and bacteria into your drinking water.

The Cost of Replacing Refrigerator Water Filters
Every 3000 miles or so, a car's oil must be changed. This ensures the longevity of your engine, and keeps certain particles from requiring major costly repairs. On average this means 4 oil changes per year, at an average annual cost of $140.00. Isn't the water that your family drinks and cooks with every bit as important as the oil that goes in your car?
Replacement refrigerator water filters vary but on average, changing the filter two times a year will cost roughly $70-$80, even less if multiple filters are bought or the compatible version is chosen. By using two water filters per year, a refrigerator can filter about 3,000 bottles of water. This can save over $600 a year instead of purchasing bottled water, and it is a better choice for the environment!
