LG is the foremost maker of refrigerators, many of which offer water and ice dispensers. With a filtration system, your water is contamination free and it’s practical in that you can have filtered water on tap without splurging on bottled counterparts. Having a filter in place in the system ensures that the quality of water stays pure and crisp.
Most ideally, the easiest way to pick the right filter for your fridge is to remove the existing one as an example. This ensures your replacement filter is the correct fit for the refrigerator. Next you’ll want to look at the specifications and efficacy of whatever design you choose. Some may have a higher water yield capacity, but at a high price tag. Next we’ll provide a broad list of LG filter options to help guide this process and ensure the best decision is made for your fridge.
