When Was the Last Time You Replaced the Water Filter in Your Refrigerator?

As the water filter in your refrigerator removes bad taste and scale from the water used in your ice maker and fountain, it accumulates lots of poisonous yucky stuff often found in tap water such as lead, asbestos, chlorine, giardia, cysts, pesticides, and herbicides. But after six to 12 months of use, the water filter becomes saturated and needs to be replaced because it’s no longer filtering out the bad stuff and you’re drinking it all in! When was the last time you replaced the water filter in your refrigerator?

Most refrigerators today with ice makers or water through the door have water filters built in, which is much more convenient than installing one in the water supply line from your water source. Your refrigerator water filter is most likely located either inside the refrigerator cabinet, near the top, or in the grill at the bottom of the unit. Here’s a convenient listing of the most common replacement water filters for refrigerators.

Start your summer off in good health and replace the water filter in your refrigerator today!
