Both the OEM and aftermarket filter for the 12527304 water filter eliminate impurities that end up in your drinking water, including minerals, chemicals, and dirt. The OEM Maytag Clean 'n Clear and the aftermarket WaterSentinel replacement have the same change frequency, pressure range, flow rate, and 300 gallon filtering capacity. Each filter offered is guaranteed to fit the compatible refrigerator types and give you high quality water and ice. What differentiates the Maytag Clean 'n Clear from the aftermarket WaterSentinel, other than the price, is the fact that the OEM filter is NSF certified. This means that the filter was tested against NSF International standards for reducing health-related and aesthetic contaminants and received certifications for standards 42 and 53. The aftermarket filters did not receive this rating, even though some filters are made with NSF approved 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.
