Note on Fridge Filter

If you’re not sure whether to buy an original or a less expensive universal replacement fridge water filter, here are some things to think about before you buy:
1) Keep an eye out for the NSF logo.
If the filter has one, you may rest assured that it properly reduces the level of pollutants to the certified level. NSF charges water purification companies a lot of money to test and certify each filter model. Companies are permitted to use the NSF logo on their certified items once the product has passed NSF testing. Purchasing a universal filter without this stamp of approval means you have no way of knowing if the water filter’s contents are beneficial or not. However, be aware that some companies/manufacturers, sadly, use unlicensed NSF emblems on their products. If you’re not sure, check the NSF website to see if the manufacturer and filter model are listed as certified. Get More Information
2) Examine the filter media that has been utilised in the filter.
Because activated carbon has the ability to absorb many of the compounds contained in water, it is the most common component used in water filters. Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or carbon block are commonly used in activated carbon filters for home water treatment. Carbon block filters have a higher pollutant removal ratio than cartridge filters, despite the fact that both are quite effective. Water forms a channel (pushing the granular carbon to the side) in fridge water filters containing GAC after a period of time, allowing water to travel directly through the filter without filtration.
3) Examine the refrigerator’s water filter’s functioning instructions.
Flow rate, operating temperature, operating pressure, service life, capacity, and the type of media it contains should all be included in a water filter’s description. This should at the very least match the original filter. If you don’t, the flow of water may be significantly reduced, or the filter may break owing to the water pressure from your mains supply.
