The Filtration Process
This water filter was designed by scientists to utilize activated carbon to remove the unwanted particles from the water in your home. Activated carbon is an extremely porous substance that allows for superior performance in trapping particles as they pass through the filter.
The tap water in your home enters the refrigerator from the rear water line and travel through the water filter. The water filter has activated carbon in the center to filter out impurities, such as lead, asbestos, mold, bacteria, cysts and chlorine. All of which can be very harmful to your family’s health. Clean water flows out of the filter and travel down two water lines. One water line leads to the dispenser to have chilled, clean water at all times. The other water line leads to the ice-maker in your refrigerator to produce clear and refreshing ice cubes for all of your beverages.
