Your refrigerator water filter can be a powerful tool that guarantees you have the safest, freshest water possible. Depending on your water filter type, your filter can remove a miraculous number of contaminants from your water as long as your system is properly maintained and cared for. For most refrigerator water filters, that requires simply replacing your water filter every six months or when you notice a change in the taste or smell of your water.
While most of us expect our tap water to be 100% safe, the truth is aging water infrastructures and countless other factors can contribute to the presence of many unwanted contaminates.
Home filters are our last line of protection from viruses, bacteria, chemicals and metals like lead. While tap water often meets minimal water quality standards from EPA, the reality is many experts agree these standards are too lenient.
The best way to ensure you have the most purified water is to change your fridge water filter every six months. Over time your water filter will collect filtered out contaminants that will diminish its effectiveness and the quality of your water.

The vast majority of refrigerator filters are located in one of two locations – in the grille at the base of the fridge or in the back upper-right corner of your refrigerator. In either location, you’ll see a knob or a button that will easily release the filter for removal. Consult your user manual to help find information about your Frigidaire water filter.

While water filters are powerful water purifiers when properly maintained, neglected water filters can not only stop capturing harmful contaminants but also create their own unique problems for your appliances and your water quality.
