The key to most modern water filters is a special form of carbon called activated carbon. This substance is designed specifically to filter out impurities. It takes advantage of a process called adsorption. Adsorption is different from absorption in that it allows the liquid to pass through. The only things that adhere to the surface are foreign particles within the water. As a result, within a matter of seconds, unfiltered tap water enters the filter, moves through the activated carbon, and comes out clean on the other side. The 481281729632 water filter will supply your home with clean, healthy water for months to come.
Foreign substances can seep into your water supply from a variety of different sources. An example of a source would be old, leaky pipes. Old pipes can leech things like rust and lead into your water. While tap water is safe an overwhelming majority of the time, it still doesn’t always taste the best. This is a problem solved by the 481281729632.
Installation is a simple process if you follow along with the video or read the steps below. You should be able to enjoy filtered water in a matter of minutes. Your filter should be located in the grille at the bottom, but if not, check the back or the top right hand corner on the inside.
1. Switch off your ice maker before performing a replacement.
2. Turn the cap counterclockwise until you feel it unlock (should just be 1/4 turn).
3. Pull the filter right out.
4. Slide the cap off of the old filter.
5. Slide the cap onto the new filter.
6. Insert the new cartridge into the grille with the cap pointing up.
7. Lock the filter in place by turning the filter 1/4 turn clockwise.
8. Flush out water for approximately 5 minutes and turn your ice maker back on.
It’s important to flush out water every time. We recommend you perform this replacement at least once every six months. After continual use, the carbon in the filter begins to degrade. This results in cloudier, low-quality water. Find out if the 481281729632 is right for your fridge by taking advantage of our free, handy-dandy filter finder.
