Basically, a refrigerator water filter serves a life of 6 months. This means you should replace the fridge water filter every six months but also depends on how much water you use in your daily life and the model number of your filter.
If your fridge has an extra part called a bypass plug, your refrigerator may work without installing a water filter. But for safety and your health, we don’t recommend bypassing the fridge water filter.
If you do not change your filter for a long time, scaling and deposit may buildup in the water and ice machine, which can seriously damage your fridge. And drinking water with harmful substances can also damage your health.
Your water dispenser could become slow. Even if you change the filter on time, your water filter could be clogged with elements building up in the tube. Once your water dispenser becomes slow, maybe it is time for replacing a refrigerator filter.
An expired refrigerator water filter can no longer filter the water. Harmful elements like bacteria can build up in the filter tube which will damage the health of drinking water and your health. So remember to replace your filter on time.
If your refrigerator water filter is clogged or damaged, the filtered water slows down or stops flowing. Then your ice maker will also stop working or the ice could taste odd. So it is important for you to replace the water filter for the fridge on time.
We recommend replacing a new fridge water filter. Because if you choose to clean the old filter, it is more difficult for users to check whether the filter has been expired. But if your filter has already expired, after dumping all the debris from the old tube, the filter may no longer good as it used to be. This filter can no longer remove harmful substances, residual chlorine, lead, heavy metals, and other substances in the water. So we recommend replacing a new fridge water filter on time, this way is more convenient and faster.
