Refrigerator manufacturers suggest you replace your fridge filters every 6 months, and there are very simple steps that make it easy to access and replace your refrigerator filter. Old refrigerator filter cartridges can cause water to have bad taste, odor, and leak contaminants into filtered water.
There is wide diversity in water filtration and purification systems on the market, but one of the most common systems is the filtration unit built right into your refrigerator. Newer refrigerator models provide water filtration and dispense ice and water through the door. It is recommended by most experts and refrigerator manufacturers that you change your refrigerator water filter at least every six months.
Six months is an average, but can vary widely based on factors such as usage and flow rate expectancy. Most of us drink water on a daily basis, but we fail to remember how that water actually gets into our cups. The fact of the matter is, water travels through miles of piping (steel, plastic and copper pipes) before ever reaching homes, potentially picking up impurities along the way.
Failure to change your refrigerator water filter, at least every six months, permits unabsorbed water contaminants, newly formed bacteria, and bad taste and smells to saturate the filter, forcing the filter to leak contaminants back into processed water. Most refrigerator water filter systems do a very good job at filtering out certain contaminates that cause bad odor and taste in water, but refrigerator water filters are not necessarily designed to eliminate some of the more potentially harmful water contaminates.
