Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "I just installed a new icemaker filter and my water is cloudy/white?"
A. After you install a new filter (this is the case with any/all brands of filter cartridges) you should run it for a few minutes. Generally cloudy or white water indicates air in the line and this is natural and normal with a replacement of a cartridge. Air will enter in the lines and cartridge. Just run the water for a few minutes and the cloudy conditions will go away (unless you have VERY cold water in which case it is the oxygen in the water that could be making the water look cloudy). It is always a good idea to run the water free flowing for a few minutes after installing any brand or type of new filter.
Q. "While installing this filter, I realized the fittings on my tubing won't fit the quick connects that come with the filter. How do I proceed with installation?"
A. In order to complete this installation, you need to cut the tubing to remove the old fittings (cut tubing as close to the old fitting as possible). Once they are removed from the 1/4"o.d. tubing, the tubing will push into the quick connect fitting supplied with the filter.
Q. "I would rather use stainless steel braided connectors to install a new icemaker filter, but all the filters seem to come with 'quick connect' fittings. Can you help me?"
A. In order to use stainless steel braided connectors you will need to purchase an icemaker filter that has female pipe threads. We offer the # WIC made by American Plumber has 1/4" fips (female iron pipe size) inlets and outlets. You will then need to purchase a 1/4" male pipe thread (MIPS) compression adapter
