Electrolux EWF01 Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Electrolux EWF01. You may also know it as the Electrolux Pure Advantage or the FC300. Different part numbers but the same filter cartridge. It fits into all Electrolux branded refrigerators except for ICON models with side by side doors, but it does fit into ICON models with French doors. Now, this cartridge has a minor visual defect that I’m going to zoom in here and show you. It does not affect performance; every cartridge has this same visual issue that sort of worries some clients when they purchase this cartridge. It is nothing to worry about, it is perfectly harmless. Let me show you what I’m talking about. What I’d like you to notice is this white scraggly material here. This is the remnant of an ultrasonic welding process. This material has been approved by NSF Standard 42, it is harmless, it is inert, and it cannot get through the carbon block to the other side where it would be in your drinking water. Now the EWF01 is NSF Standard 42 and 53 certified for a long list of contaminants, and the usual nasties are on the list; chlorine taste and odor, sediment, lead, mercury, lindane, atrazine, toxaphene, benzene, asbestos, cysts and microorganisms like cryptosporidium and giardia, all the nasties that you don’t want in your drinking water. Filter life is approximately 400 gallons or six months, whichever comes first, and at FilterDoctor.com we strongly urge you never to go longer than six months on a fridge filter change, because it really is a bad idea. Again, this is the Electrolux EWF01, also known as the Electrolux Pure Advantage or the FC300, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
