It filters water.
This is an upgraded filter, considerably more expensive than the original filters. I am fortunate to be in an area where our Municipal Water company supplies a very good quality product, perhaps if I were in an area where that were not the case I would be more appreciative of the increase in performance in this filter. As it is, I can't really tell the difference, but I don't want to run the fridge without the filter in place so I keep buying them.
The filters arrived in good condition and in unopened packaging. They installed into the refrigerator with no difficulty. However the refrigerator locking mechanism did not return to the locked position. The filter appears to be working properly in spite of this situation.
This water filter fits perfectly into my refrigerator and filters my water. Of course, I am fortunate to live in an area with superior municiple water, so I can't tell a lit of difference, but having the filter makes the mother-in-law happy, a happy mother-in-law makes for a happy wife, and a happy wife makes for a happy life!
