Clean, chilled water is possible any time with the Frigidaire PureSource water filter. This convenient filter saves you the trouble of finding space to store water jugs or other types of external filter. Plus, you can choose between different grades of filter depending on the specific needs of the area.
For heavily treated municipal water, a basic filter will remove chlorine and class III particulates. In agricultural areas, it is worthwhile to invest in a Frigidaire PureSource water filter capable of removing over 90 percent of most pesticides and herbicides. For anyone living on well water, the highest grade of filter will remove nearly all contaminants, including pharmaceutical pollution.
Frigidaire PureSource Water Filter Models
If you have access to a municipal water system, the test report published annually provides some guidance in choosing a filter. However, the EPA does not mandate testing for many types of common contaminants. If you are using well water, it is essential to opt for the highest power filter in lieu of testing. You can perform a water test, but it will only report the most common contaminants.
1. The PureSource 2 filter removes mercury, lead, cysts, and a number of common pesticides and herbicides. It also removes particulates to class III.
2. The PureSource Plus filter removes particulates to class I. It also removes lead and a smaller array of pesticides.
3. The best filter for Frigidaire refrigerators is the PureSource Ultra. It has the capacity to remove 2, 4-D herbicide, volatile organic chemicals, asbestos, benzene, and styrene among other toxins.
Maintaining your Frigidaire PureSource Water Filter
There is very little required for filter maintenance. The cartridges must be prepared prior to insertion by washing them and running through a few glasses of water. The only absolutely necessary maintenance is changing the filter on a schedule. A two person household may need a filter change only once every nine months or so. A family of six will likely need a change every four months. Experts recommend changing your Frigidaire PureSource water filter once every six months, and this is based entirely on average family size and use.
