The fridge filters are not bad, but OMG the ice maker filters are $50+.
It's true. When I come home from a hard day mastodon hunting and fighting off the bearcats, I just want to put my feet up and have a cold brew and watch the cave paintings. But no.......... there is always some alien creature at the entrance trying to sell me "the latest technology". First it was wheels and then it was pyramids. Like I give a crap about geometry?He's not the only one.
Our LG doesn't have a filter.We're looking at new ones right now. Our Kenmore is 15 years old and has a couple issues. The way the water filter mounts is absolute crap.
I can scoop sand out of my toilet tank.We need filters out here…

My faucet screens need to be cleaned about every 6 months.
And we are *not* on well-water... at least not locally... but it's obvious that Metropolitan is sourcing our water from local wells.
I've many times considered adding a pair of small filters on our service entrance to clear out the larger particles.Yeah, I had to add a sand filter just before our water softener at our old place with a well. The white string filter would turn red within a day or 2, but would keep working for at least 6 months. I changed every 3 months or so. Cut way down on the sand.
Our water in Norman could have Arsenic or Fluoride, both if too high are bad. But mostly those were higher in the deeper commercial wells.
I never did get our well tested, I just trusted the well folks to get us clean water. Been drinking well water the vast majority of my life, no since in worrying now. Of course, now we are on city water ... tastes like chlorine. I've tasted way worse, so I'll take it.
I never could taste the salt from the water softener, but it did affect our Keurig. I had to use bottled water in the Keurig as it would clog with our "salted" softened water.
Similar here. The old stand-by companies still make a few premium models in the US, but you have to be careful.The system is beyond broke. The major international companies have a dominant position and are making huge, I mean really huge profits, and it's at the expense of the infrastructure. It's not good, at all. the standard for the UK right now is up to a 28-day wait for an engineer visit. I try to buy German for my kitchen appliances except in the 20 years since I left retail, there are no companies making stuff in Germany anymore. With the exception of brands like Gaganua whose products 20 years ago were the best of the best. No idea if still the same. Now we are forced to deal with Korean and Chinese-made goods, rather shitty all in all. Product support is limited to 6 years now (in law).
