Product Details

The CLCH100 refrigerator water filter by ClearChoice is the perfect tool to remove unwanted foreign substances from your home or office's indoor water supply.  This aftermarket product is an inexpensive, high quality alternative to the factory original filter.  Design to replace the OEM part #4396510 filter, the CLCH100 water filter can be used in many popular refrigerator models such as Whirlpool, Thermador, Kitchenaid, Amana, and others.  Enjoy better-tasting, clearer, and healthier water by utilizing this premium replacement filter in your home or workplace.

By filtering out unwanted impurities such as rust, mold, bacteria, and chlorine, the CLCH100 efficiently provides a clean water supply.  Your unfiltered tap water is highly susceptible to contamination.  This fridge filter replacement effectively removes any impurities by using a proven filtration method.  As your tap water fills the filter chamber, it is pushed through a carbon-filled inner section.  The carbon in the filter works to attract and capture the foreign and undesirable substances in your tap water.  After passing through this chamber, crystal clear, clean water is produced and ready for consumption.  Healthier, better-tasting water is available for you to enjoy at your leisure.

In order to ensure the continual standard of high quality water, make sure to perform routine filter changes.  After extended use, water passing through the carbon causes it to degrade.  This can lead to a decrease in water quality as well as an increased risk for health and maintenance issues.  This can be prevented by performing routine filter changes every six months.  If you have hard water or well water, the filter may need to be changed more frequently.

Activated Block Carbon Technology

The CLCH100 uses activated block carbon technology. Carbon is one of the most adsorptive substances, and its numerous and microscopic pores make it capable of adsorbing many microscopic contaminants. Adsorption is a chemical bond between the surface of the carbon and a molecule (contaminant).

  • Activated carbon is a carbonaceous, highly porous adsorptive medium that has a complex structure composed primarily of carbon atoms. The networks of pores in activated carbons are channels created within a rigid skeleton of disordered layers of carbon atoms, linked together by chemical bonds, stacked unevenly, creating a highly porous structure between the carbon layers. Activated carbon is able to attract and capture a whole host of contaminants, including chlorine and other organic chemical compounds. 
  • Activated carbon means that the carbon has been treated at 1000°C with steam molecules to selectively burn holes into the carbonized raw material, creating a multitude of pores inside the carbonaceous matrix. This process creates so much surface area that a teaspoon of activated carbon has roughly the same surface area as a soccer field! 
  • Activated block carbon, then, with its use of adsorption, is one of the most effective water filtration methods in use today.
