The filter works and it's easy to install. Six months is too short. Maybe nine months to replace, but it depends on the quality of your tap water. If Sears cut the price, people might replace them more frequently (and make more visits to Sears...hint...hint...lower the price).
I purchased this filter from my local Sears store only to find some strange objects floating in my water. I contacted the manufacturer of this product, PUR water, and was sent a coupon for a replacement unit. Only problem is NO ONE accepts these coupons including my local sears store. I now have a $50 paper weight and no fresh water to drink/cook with. The sad thing is that on PUR waters web site they ask "how clean is your water", when sadly my tap water is clean and it is only the filtered water that has this problem. These coupons from Procter and Gamble, the maker of PUR and Kenmore filters are a scam and nothing more as they are not honored anywhere and no one can tell me where they are honored.
We bought our Kenmore Elite because it had this filter system, almost as good as purified. Better cleaner than bottled water at much less cost.
Sears always has these available
This filter works great. The only thing I would change is the way you are notified to change the filter. It's sometimes difficult to remember to change it, but that would probably fall on the refrigerator rather than the filter. Perhaps when you purchase a filter, you can be emailed a reminder from the company to change the filter when the time is coming near. My refrigerator has an icon that appears when its time to change it, however, I don't always notice it when it's time and there is no beeping noise so it often goes unnoticed for quite sometime after when it should be changed.
These filters are wonderful except for one things...they don't last forever. They definitely improve taste of water and I trust that they take out the bad stuff.
If your water "off" in taste and your refrigerator uses this filter you should be happy with the clean up in taste it provides. Good tasting water is important to us. We don?t use a lot of water, mostly for drinking, coffee and tea, so we can use the filter for a year which makes it very cost effective. This filter effectively removed the chlorine after taste from our water. If you use a lot of water, you might want to shorten the replacement period to 6-months or when you start to detect a flavor change.
This water filter is more expensive than the LG water filter found on other sites for twenty dollars less.
Water tastes great with this filter!
I change my filter once per year. It is as easy as a lightbulb to change.
This is an excellent filter for the type of water we have. The taste of the water is not good unfiltered but very good through the filter.
this filter improves the quality of our city water that goes through the Sears Water softner
