Capable of fitting a variety of refrigerator brands and models, the 9010 refrigerator water filter is a popular choice for filtering water. It’s designed to replace the popular name brand filter part 4396508. Backed by scientific testing, the 9010 fridge filter is an efficient filtration device that will provide your home with clear, healthy water. You’ll never have to worry about that tap water taste again. Experience better tasting water and ice with this high quality, yet inexpensive fridge filter. The 9010 refrigerator water filter is a purchase you will not regret.
With a scientifically tested filtration process, the 9010 filter removes tiny particles found in your home’s water supply. The key behind this process is a nifty substance called activated carbon. Carbon can be engineered to become more porous with increased surface area. This is known as activated carbon. This increased surface area that activated carbon possesses allows for greater adsorption of unwanted substances in your water supply. Adsorption is different from absorption in that it occurs when a dissolved solid, liquid, or gas adheres to a surface, and allows the larger molecules to pass through.
The filtering process begins as soon as water enters the filter from your water supply. As the 9010 fridge filter fills with water, the water is pushed through an inner chamber that contains activated carbon. As the water comes into contact with the activated carbon, particulates are captured. These unwanted substances can include asbestos, bacteria, mold, chlorine, and cysts. As these particulates are captured by the carbon, clean water passes through the other side. All of this happens in a matter of seconds, resulting in clean, great tasting water whenever you want it.
How to Install Your Water Filter
The 9010 fridge filter is simple to install. The placement of the filter is generally located at the bottom of your fridge. Simply follow these steps to install:
- Locate the filter at the bottom of your fridge.
- Grab the filter cap and twist it one quarter counter clockwise to unlock it.
- Pull the filter straight out and remove the cap.
- Reverse the process to install the new one.
- Turn cap clockwise to lock.
Always remember to flush approximately 2 gallons of water through the filter before using whenever you replace a filter.
You should perform routine filter changes to ensure that your home is always supplied with the best water. Over time and after many uses, the activated carbon within the device will begin to degrade. Older activated carbon is less efficient at trapping all of those unwanted substances. A decrease in quality can result in a number of problems such as worse tasting water and maintenance risks. To prevent these possible issues, we recommend you replace your 9010 fridge filter at least every six months. Performing routine changes will result in high quality water all year-round.
