Our filters are so effective at reducing contaminants found in water because of the carbon block inside the filter. The specially prepared carbon is incredibly porous, giving it tremendous surface area to capture microscopic particles.
As the incoming water passes through the carbon block, the larger particles get stuck outside surface. This removes sediment from the water.
Some impurities, like chlorine, are reduced by a rapid chemical reaction upon contact with the carbon. This improves the taste and smell of the water.
Then, the carbon block acts as a magnet for compounds like lead and VOCs, trapping the contaminants. This reduces potentially harmful substances found in water.
The resulting filtered water is now ready to be dispensed.
Using a consensus based process, NSF creates standards, test and certifications for food and water industries. The internationally recognized independent organization works to reduce the negative effects that unsafe products and processes have on our health and environment.
Our Frigidaire® Water Filters are tested rigourously to guarantee that they reduce contaminants, such as lead. So, not only do our filters provide you with fresh tasting water, they also ensure that your water is more pure and clean.
