How much water do I need to run through a new refrigerator filter?
Then, do I need to flush my new water filter?
When replacing your refrigerator water filter, it is always recommended to “flush” it before use. Flushing your filter means to run water through it several times before using the filter for consumption. All you need is a container that fits into the water dispenser of your refrigerator.
Furthermore, why is water cloudy after replacing filter? The cloudy appearance is due to very tiny air bubbles in the water. The water is perfectly fine to drink. The air in the water is the same air that you are breathing. This “cloudiness” happens because when the new water filter cartridge is manufactured, the filter is full of air, not water.
In respect to this, why does my new refrigerator water taste bad?
An ice maker is a convenience that is standard on many new refrigerators. This is caused by the new plastic lines supplying water to the ice maker. You can quickly resolve this issue by flushing the lines to remove any impurities and get rid of the unpleasant taste.
What happens if you don't change your water filter?
An unchanged water filter can produce water with a foul odor or a strange taste. A dirty or clogged water filter can affect the drinking water supply as well as the ice supply. If you decide not to change your refrigerator water filter you could also cause damage to your refrigerator.
