Filtration Process

The WSL-3 fridge filter is scientifically engineered to use activated carbon for removing impurities from your home’s water supply. Activated carbon is processed to increase the amount of porous surface to allow any unwanted particles to be captured in the carbon as a filter. The water enters your refrigerator through the rear and travels into the rear of the filter. As the water moves through the filter, it is cleansed of lead, asbestos, bacteria, mold cysts and chlorine. The particulates of these substances adhere to the carbon and the clean water flows out of the water filter, through the water lines to both your water dispenser and your icemaker. The result is crystal-clear water that tastes great for your family.
