We continue to prove that NOT all water filters are the same!
Counterfeits & some non-genuine filters fail to deliver on many expected benefits, including the reduction of certain metals, pesticides, insecticides, chlorides and other compounds. They also may not contain the same technologies or media as genuine products, may not fit properly in the refrigerator, and may crack, leak or burst after being installed.**
