We have become conditioned to change our smoke alarm batteries when we set our clocks back or forward. Maybe we should add our fridge water filters to that list too.

Most manufacturers recommend you change the water filter on your fridge every 6 months. This isn’t just a money making scheme.
Failure to do this allows unabsorbed water contaminants and newly formed bacteria to saturate the filter, forcing the filter to leak contaminants back into processed water. Then the “filtered” water you are drinking may actually contain more contaminants than the filter was intended to remove in the first place!

On most makes and models you can do this fairly painlessly yourself. If you don’t want to or if you have a more difficult brand, call Maslyn & Sons Appliance for any and all refrigerator repair needs.
