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 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 rating, though some non-NSF rated filters are still constructed with 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 #4:
The main ingredient in almost all water filters is activated carbon, which is a form of carbon that has been processed to make it extremely porous and thus to have a very large surface area available for absorption of chemicals and impurities.
