The 5231JA2006A water filter reduces contaminants found in your water including dirt, chlorine, chemicals and unwanted minerals. The OEM LG replacement filter has been certified to meet NSF/ANSI Standard 42, meaning it is certified to reduce chlorine levels in your water. The aftermarket Supco replacement filter has very similar features to the OEM, but it comes at a much lower price. It also has a 750 gallon filtering capacity, compared to the 300 gallon filtering capacity of the OEM. The lowest priced option we offer is the aftermarket Swift Green replacement filter. Don’t let the price fool you, though. The Swift Green replacement has excellent filtration and is made from an eco-friendly process. The primary difference between the OEM and the aftermarket filters is the price and NSF/ANSI rating, though some non-NSF/ANSI rated filters are still constructed with NSF/ANSI rated parts.

Drinking municipal water isn’t the healthiest way to stay hydrated. The 5231JA2006A refrigerator water filter purifies your water by passing it through activated carbon which removes the impurities. We offer three different models of 5231JA2006A filters: The OEM LG replacement, the aftermarket Supco replacement, and the lowest priced aftermarket Swift Green replacement. The LG replacement has been strictly tested and certified to meet NSF/ANSI International Standard 42, meaning it has been certified to reduce chlorine taste and odor from your water. However, even though neither aftermarket filters are NSF/ANSI certified, we recommend choosing either the Swift Green or Supco filter due to their affordable pricing and outstanding filtration. The 5231JA2006A filter should be changed at least once every 6 months to ensure that your water tastes great and remains clean and healthy.
