When Should I Change My Refrigerator’s Water Filter?

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.

Water travels through miles of piping (steel, plastic, and copper pipes) before ever reaching your home or business. Along the way it may pick up impurities. Water filters and filtration systems can reduce these contaminants. Failure to change your refrigerator water filter allows contaminants (like lead and chlorine) and newly formed bacteria to saturate the filter, forcing the filter to leak contaminants back into the water. Most refrigerator water filter systems do a good job at filtering out certain contaminates that cause bad odor and taste, but refrigerator water filters are not necessarily designed to eliminate some of the more harmful water contaminants. For these contaminants, other water filtration systems should be used in addition to your refrigerator's filter.

How Do I Change My Refrigerator’s Filter?

Many manufacturers have taken extra steps to ensure that the refrigerator filters are easy to access and replace. In most cases, changing your refrigerator water filter is quite simple. Each manufacturer's refrigerator water filter system is different, and you should consult the owner's manual to locate the filter and follow the directions for removing and replacing it. For instructions on many popular models, check out our step-by-step instructional videos. Changing your refrigerator's water filter only takes a few minutes and will keep you and your family drinking clean, great tasting, filtered water.

The Cost of Replacing Refrigerator Water Filters

change your clock change your refrigerator filterEvery 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 cost of $120.00. 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!
