The SWFCB water filter is made of high-grade material and going up against scrutinous testing by NSF International, an independent public testing organization for public and environmental health, the WFCB original OEM product by Frigidaire fared more then adequately. The factory original SWFCB Frigidaire WFCB model met both NSF Standard 42 and Standard 53, meaning it is certified to reduce chlorine, lead, odor, cysts, turbidity, impurities, and other potentially harmful chemicals in their water supply. The aftermarket EcoAqua WFCB-EFF model is exactly the same statistics besides the NSF rating. Although it isn't NSF certified this model is great option for someone that wants a high quality filter for a affordable price. 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.
Refrigerator Water Filter Tip #1:
When replacing a new filter, flush about 2 gallons of water through the filter before drinking the water. This will eliminate any carbon particles leftover from the manufacturing process.
