Filter Process

The SGF-M10 uses activated carbon to filter and remove impurities through absorption.  Charcoal is carbon and activated charcoal means that it has been treated with oxygen to spread open up all the millions of pores and pockets on its surface area. When this happens, all these pores and pockets become able to absorb and trap impurities such as chlorine, bacteria and mold and will improve the taste and odor of the water and give you the clean taste that you want to drink and use for cooking purposes.

Once all the pores are full, they can no longer trap these impurities. This is when it is then time for you to replace and change out the filter.

How to Install Your Filter

The filter is easy to install and can be done easily and quickly.  Simply follow these steps:

  1. Unlatch the plastic filter cover, and let it swing down to expose the filter.
  2. Turn the old filter one quarter-turn counterclockwise.
  3. Pull the filter straight out to remove it.
  4. Push the new filter into the filter compartment.
  5. Twist the filter a quarter-turn clockwise to lock it.
  6. Swing the plastic filter cover up.
  7. Don’t forget to reset your change filter light if there is one. This light is based on a timer and will go off in approximately six months after resetting it to signal that you need to replace your filter again.

As a reminder, after installing your new filter, run water continuously through for approximately 5 minutes.  You will more than likely see particles come through while cleaning out your line.

Change Your Water Filter Routinely

The SGF-M10 refrigerator water filter is designed to last 6 months or through 300 gallons of water. As described above, over time, the carbon pores become full and no longer has the pores and pockets for impurities to go. The filtering process will start to weaken. Changing the water filter regularly and on time will ensure that your water is as clean and healthy as it can be for you. Set a reminder to change your filter at least twice a year and more frequently if you have a high volume of water usage.  For replacement filters, check here to see our selection.  Discount Filters offer 100% free shipping and returns, no minimum order required.
