Used in Frigidaire, Kenmore, and other high-quality refrigerators across the industry, the WFCB water filter is of high-grade for its type. Going up against scrutinous testing by NSF International, an independent public testing organization for public and environmental health, the WFCB original OEM product by Kenmore faired more then adequately. The factory original WFCB graded out as certified to meet both NSF Standard 42 and Standard 53. Such certifications leave consumers at ease when it comes to reducing chlorine, lead, odor, cysts, turbidity, impurities, and other potentially harmful chemicals in their water supply. One won't have to wait long when filling up a beverage, as this WFCB OEM by Whirlpool dispenses water at a rapid rate of a half gallon per minute. To ensure optimal water flow, filters should be changed once every six months or when the water quality begins to decrease.
NSF/ANSI Standard 42
Filters tested against NSF/ANSI Standard 42 (aesthetic effects) are certified to reduce specific aesthetic or non-health-related contaminants (chlorine, taste and odor, and particulates) that may be present in public or private drinking water. See filter performance data sheet or manufacturer's packaging for details.
NSF/ANSI Standard 53
Filters tested against NSF/ANSI Standard 53 (health effects) are certified to reduce specific health-related contaminants, such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia, lead, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether), etc., that may be present in public or private drinking water. See filter performance data sheet or manufacturer's packaging for details.
Filters Without NSF Ratings
Some filters that are not NSF rated are still constructed from NSF rated components.
Save Your Furnace Tip #4:
MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, and measures a filtersí efficiency in removing small particles. The higher the MERV rating, the more particles the filter can remove.
