How To Obtain The Best Refrigerator Water Filter

By Daryl Ventura

Most modern day fridges are fitted with water dispenser. In order to maintain refreshingly clean drinking water, be certain that the refrigerator water filters are replaced regularly. Many filter manufacturers suggest that it should be changed at least 6 months from the day you initially use it or maybe less depending on how often you use it and how many people living in your home.

Obtaining a new refrigerator water filter is relatively easy especially with newer models. On the other hand water filter for fridges with old model is maybe more difficult and odds are they are already outdated and the company already ceased making them. If you have an older type fridge and you find it difficult to locate a water filter, the best thing to do is to find an adaptor so you can apply water filter from other brand or new model filters. You can also try looking at authorize service centers and vendors; normally they keep large quantity of extra parts. If they don’t have stock they can basically have them ordered it for you, keep in mind that they have a direct communication with the manufacturer and they can easily ask for it.

Many people claim that original filter should only be use to guarantee that they function properly. For example, if you have a GE fridge you should also use a GE water filter. I believe that is not entirely true, if you will examine closely, some parts of the fridge are actually originated from some other companies too. For example the light bulb probably come from a company who specializes in producing lights and replacing them with other brand as long as they have the same electric power rating will work perfectly ok.

There are a lot of third party companies who actually produce water filters; most of these corporations specialize in water treatment. The water filters they make have the same quality with the original one and in some cases possibly perform even better. Bear in mind that these companies specialize in making these sorts of filters. A perfect example is Brita and “Water Sentenel”. Brita is a company that produces filtered water pitcher; they also manufacture refrigerator filters for General Electric, Frigidaire, Maytag, Jen-Air and Kenmore. Water Sentenel produces replacement filters for General Electric, Kenmore, Hotpoint, Whirlpool, Samsung and more.

However, if you really need genuine water filters and you do not want to take the risk on buying third party alternative parts then it’s actually your choice. If you are using Samsung then you should order Aqua Pure Plus water filters, if you own a General Electric then use a GE SmartWater water filters. Before purchasing water filter you need to know the actual model of the old one. For GE filters it should look something like GWF, GWFA, and MWFA, for Samsung it should look something like DA29-00003G or DA29-00003B.

Also, when getting a filter it is a good idea to order an extra unit for spare for an instant replacement next time you need it and also to save on shipping expenses if you intend to obtain it on the internet. When looking online you should include your location next to the keyword, example: Houston, Dallas, etc. This way you can cut back for shipping charges and often you can even have free shipping.
