The water filter in your refrigerator often gets overlooked and you can go for a long period of time not thinking about replacing it. It’s a kind of maintenance routine that some think might be too complicated and is easily put off but the fact is, if your refrigerator dispenses water, you should be checking and changing the filter. It should be checked like you check the batteries in your smoke alarm or the oil in your car.
You should consider replacing your water filter at least every 6 months, but if you use a heavier than average amount of water, the filter should be replaced more often. You should do this to prevent an old water filter from actually growing bacteria and or mold. Yuck!
Here are a few things that can tell when it’s time or past time to change the filter:
- The indicator light is blinking yellow or red
- A decreased flow in the water
- Ice maker may have stopped making ice cubes or they’e not clear (clean)
- Unpleasant taste or odor
These things can let you know that it’s time to change the filter. Learn more tips on how to replace the water filter in your refrigerator. The Philadelphia Home Inspection is here to help!
