I am always trying to find ways to keep the fridge’s water clean and free from chlorine and BPA when it comes to taking the plunge and installing an inline water filter. By the way, I’m not an expert on inline water filters but I do know that this one is really cool and is definitely worth your research.
I’ve seen a lot of cool and innovative things in the fridge market over the years (and you can find a lot of fun water filters on Amazon) but nothing quite hits the spot like an inline water filter. It’s an ingenious design that allows you to pour clean, filtered water straight into the base of the fridge’s tank without having to add water to the fridge. The filter can be easily removed and replaced without having to buy new filters.
An inline water filter is one of the most common ways that we add water to the fridge because its relatively cheap. You can find them for around $10 to $15 a pop. The advantage is that there is no cap or valve to mess with, and there is zero chance of the water getting in the fridge.
While we have a fridge and a water filter, we don’t put water in it. There’s really no need to. We have a water tank for the fridge, which we put water into. But we don’t need water to be added to the tank to have water. In fact, we typically add water to the tank only for sanitizing purposes.
The problem is that in a lot of houses, water is not added to the tank for sanitizing purposes. You have to remove the water from the tank and add it to the tank when the tank is full. But in ours, we have a program that automatically adds water to the tank, and we often leave it full.
So, how do we know when we need to add water to the tank? Well, the program is programmed to automatically add water to the fridge when the tank is full, and if we don’t add water, then the tank is empty. So we can easily tell if there is a problem with the tank.
Yes, you can see the water in the tank (or even if it’s full), but it isnt sanitary, it is water that is not filtered. That means there is a risk that any water left in the tank could cause illness. And that is something that we will want to avoid.
The same is true for your refrigerator, so if you have a problem with the tank, you can see the water is low and not safe to drink.
The problem with inline filters is that they are really expensive, and they can be hard to use. The one downside is that if you have a very small refrigerator, the inline filter will not work, so you will not be able to see the water in the tank. But as you can see, the inline filter is a necessary evil for all of us who live in small homes, or those who do not want to spend a lot of money on a filtered water system.
If you’ve ever had to purchase water filter for your fridge, you know it is not a cheap proposition. What you do not realize, though, is that this problem affects far more people than you might think. The water filter in this story is a $40 filter that can easily replace a $500 tank. That’s a lot of money, and a lot of stuff to remember to do when you run out of water.
