Your frigidaire refrigerator and the puresource2 water filter:
When you should replace your puresource water purifier:
A great rule of thumb is to change your refrigerator's water filter at least every six months. If your home is within an region that has poor water purification from the public utility, or even if you have a well as a supply for your every day drinking water, most experts recommend replacing it every 3-4 months. The crucial factor is to monitor your filter every few weeks, paying attention to a "full" signal light on the filter itself, or watch for caution messages on your refrigerators LCD screen.
The dangers of not replacing your water filter:
There are two major risks if you don't change your refrigerator's water filter frequently. The primary is that there is a possibility of bacteria and mold developing in the filter. If a filter gets overused, or even just underused for virtually any extended period of time, your water filter is the perfect incubator for mildew which is then immediately put into your drinking water! The 2nd issue occurs when filters are clogged and overused, they actually have the potential to put sediment that were taken out from earlier water streams back into the pipes, in which case the filter is in fact doing more harm than good.
