Know Your Fridge Filter: WF289

The WF289 is a discount filter for many existing refrigerator water filters. It was made to fit neatly into refrigerators made by Kenmore, Samsung, and many other common refrigerators brands. The WF289 filter ensures that your water will be fresh, clean, and great tasting. The filter component, which contains the activated carbon filter, is specially formulated to remove most of the contaminants and particles that you do not want in your drinking water. This water filter traps unpleasant tasting substances, distasteful odors and most other unwanted materials. Don’t settle for drinking sub-standard, bad tasting unfiltered water that may be bad for your health. The  WF289 is a replacement for the DA29-00003G filter, which are found in a wide variety of refrigerator models. All of these filters should be replaced twice each year.

The Filtration Process

As the unit draws water through the line, your drinking water supply enters the filter and is passed through the activated carbon filter. It is at this point that the contaminants are drawn from the water to be caught and held firm by the carbon component. The extremely porous material traps unwanted particles and allows the water to pass through clean, clear and safe to drink.
