The RWF1052 is a identical part number to the ADQ36006101 or the LG LT700P water filter that works efficiently to provide you and your household with water that is refreshing as well as clean and clear. With this water filter installed in your fridge, you will never need to wonder if your water is as clean as it should be. The RWF1052 / ADQ36006101 is a filter that will remove impurities from your water so that you will have crystal clear, great tasting water. An added bonus to this filter is that it fits and works with a large variety of refrigerator models and brands.
The ADQ36006101 fridge filter uses a scientifically engineered process that involves activated carbon to provide you with that clean water. This type of carbon has been specially designed to be incredibly porous. This porousness increases the surface area of the carbon. That makes it adsorbent. Adsorbent is different from absorbent. With adsorbent, the impurities will stick to the surface of the carbon as opposed to being taken into the carbon itself as it would be if the carbon was absorbent. Read more about how activated carbon works within refrigerator water filters.
The process of filtration begins when the water enters the filter. It will pass through a chamber that holds the carbon. This is where the impurities are removed from the water. Impurities that are removed can be things such as mold, bacteria, asbestos, lead, cysts, chlorine and more.
How to Install the Filter
If it has a push tab then:
- Push the tab in to open the housing
- Take the old filter out by rotating it counterclockwise until it is released
- Pull out the old filter
- Put the new one in rotating it clockwise, close the housing and you are done.
If your filer housing has a pull tab, simply:
- Take off the housing cover by pushing the recessed tab in
- Rotate the filter counterclockwise to release it
- Pull it straight out and replace it with the new one
- Turn the filter clockwise until it is secure and then close the housing
Change the Filter Often
No refrigerator water filter is made to last a lifetime. As time goes on, the carbon inside the filter will start to degrade. This means that impurities are not sticking to it any longer and are coming through to the water that you cook with and drink. Water filters that run at a capacity that is less than maximum can actually raise quite a few issues. These can include energy bills that are higher as well as an increased chance of various health risks. If you want to make sure that these things do not occur then it is imperative that you change your water filter on at least a twice yearly basis. If you start to notice things like the indicator light changing to yellow, a funny taste or smell to your water or a slowing down of the water coming from the filter then you need to change it right away.
