The ukf-5001 model filter comes in two brands to choose from. The original OEM filter is manufactured by Whirlpool. It is the only brand filter to meet NSF International Standards 42 and 53. The other aftermarket brand is the ClearChoice CLCH115. The ClearChoice brand ukf-5001 however is the most budget friendly. The brands for the ukf-5001 model have equally fast flow rates that dispense water at half a gallon per minute. Both versions of the ukf-5001 filter need to be replaced every 6 months for optimal performance and great tasting water and ice. The Whirlpool EDR7D1 filters out chlorine taste and odor, sediment, sand, rust and other particulates while the ClearChoice CLCH115 reduces manly chlorine taste and odor.

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.

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.
