The OEM Frigidaire PureSource water filter and aftermarket Supco WF284 replacement are very similar when it comes to filtering your water. Both filters are able to filter your water of impurities that you shouldn't drink, such as chemicals and dirt. The aftermarket Supco WF284 is a cheaper alternative to the factory original, while still producing similar results. The Supco WF284 has the same operating temperature, pressure range, and slightly less filtering capacity as the OEM. The main difference between the two filters is that the Frigidaire WF1CB holds the Frigidaire brand name and has an NSF rating of 42. This means that the filter was tested against NSF standards of reducing chlorine odor and taste in the water. Both models are guaranteed to fit in any refrigerator model that uses the WF1CB filter and come in a convenient 3-pack that will give you 18 months of filtered water.
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.
Refrigerator Water Filter Tip #5:
It’s a good idea to smear some food-grade silicone on the rubber rings at the end of your filter.
