The 5231JA2002A filter helps to clean your water of impurities and make it healthier for you and your family. The OEM LG replacement filter has been tested and certified to meet NSF Standard 42, meaning it has been certified to reduce chlorine levels in your water. The aftermarket Swift Green replacement is made from an eco-friendly process and is a cheaper, more affordable alternative to the OEM. The Supco replacement filter is our lowest priced option. Don’t let the price fool you, though. The Supco is a great alternative to the OEM as it purifies your water for a fraction of the price of the OEM. Each of the different models all have the same flow rate and share very similar features. The primary difference between the filter brands is price and NSF rating, though many filters that are not NSF certified are still constructed from NSF rated parts.
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 #3:
When a new refrigerator filter is installed, there may be some sputtering and spitting of water while air is forced out of the filter media. This is normal and will stop after the carbon media becomes saturated with water.
