Water Filter Maintenance Tips

Return to Appliance Maintenance Tips

Cartridge-type filters

Replacing your cartridge-type water filter one to two times a year will ensure that your water filter is filtering the highest level of impurities from the water. We recommend thoroughly cleaning the canister that houses the cartridge when you replace the cartridge. Also, clean and lubricate the o-ring with food-grade silicone grease or a comparable lubricant.

Self-contained filters

Self-contained water filters (a filter without a removable cartridge) have a useful life of six months to one year. After this period, replace the filter.
