Water Supply Material and Water Filter Placement

This question is from In-line Water Filtration System for Refrigerators or Icemakers
Asked by
MV

September 12, 2012
Can this filter be hooked up to braided steel tubing with standard fittings? Or, would an adaptor be necessary to convert the standard to a compression fitting? Also, why is it necessary to install the water filter as close to the supply valve as possible?

Thank you,
MV

Answer: 
No this filter is not adaptable to steel tubing. Our filter is not next to the supply valve. The water hook up is under the sink. the flexible tubing runs about two feet through the cabinet, behind the range and lays on the floor, and then the tubing is connected to the refrigerator..

Answer: 
1) all you are doing is using the same line, 1/4 " plastic or copper line that goes to the back of the fridge already installed. no need to use any other braided etc. piping.
2) not much room to work in under the sink. Use just enough tubing to relax the filter in a horizontal position. I placed 2 pieces of string, one on each end of the filter and 2 short screws holding the filter up and out of the way.

Answer: 
You would need an adaptor if there is one, ask your HD associate. I doubt that tubing length is important, I have coils of slack in mine that gives flexibility in filter placement.

Answer: 
i don't think so without adding some plastic tubing for each end. it is designed to just insert the prepared plastic tubing right into the fitting that "has a kind of pressure clip" design.
set it up so have plastic tubing at each end, properly cut ( w/ a tubing cutter) and neatly trimmed/ filed flat & smooth etc. then insert directly into the filter.

Answer: 
I used the plastic hosing that cam with the refrigerator. Literally you insert the hose into the filter, the filter has a fitting on it that 'grabs' the hose and volia it is attached. No extra fittings or adapters were needed. I am not sure why they recommend installing the filter as close as possible to the supply valve. Mine is about 2 feet away and works fine.

Answer: 
Yes I believe it does. However, keep in mind that this particular filter simply filters out debris from your water supply, be it well, city water etc.. you can of course always install BETTER filters that remove additional chemicals etc. at much higher cost . You may also consider having your water analyzed and then go from there.

Answer: 
That is my question as well and it isnt stated on the packaging and a HD associate I asked didnt know either, you have to ask GE. I got a Watts filter that doesnt specify filter material either. I suspect they changed from carbon to a chemical concotion that removes chlorine and if the formula isnt right the water tastes bad.

This item works OUTSIDE the refrigerator in the water line before it enters the fridge. Most of the top of line fridges have a built-in filter that is installed in the fridge itself. If you don't have that with the Sub Zero, then heck yea it will work.

Hi, this is Sheree from GE and I will be glad to answer your question on GE Icemaker Filter Refill
Model # GXRTDR. This should work because it is attached to the water line itself and has nothing to do with the refrigerator. But since I specialize in GE product knowledge, I would suggest you double check with your manufacturer Sub Zero.
I hope this helps!

Product which was supposed to be replacement for model GXRTQ did not work. I had to return the product. The person in the store was very polite who helped me. He went on line and this is what GE suggested was the replacement, their replacement did not work and was designed completely different. The Home Depot person was very helpful and told me what I needed. I was disappointed that Home Depot did not have what I needed in stock from another manufacturer.

The new refrigerator filter costs five times the cost of this one for the ice maker. They both do the same job of cleaning the water and the same amount of gallons before recommended replacement. The factory one screws in but came with a plug to remove it if not using the filter. Its a little more work to install and replace the in line filter but worth the effort.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work/fit This is the replacement filter to its predecessor and it's missing adapter pieces and/or fittings that actually work with the water supply line and ice maker water supply line on the fridge. Not only does it not fit, but you can't purchase fittings/adapters to make it work, either! Returned for refund, but so far, unable to find a product that will work.
Date published: 2016-09-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent price, long lasting and easy to install. The filter lasts me longer than the recommended change time and is very easy to install on the initial installation and a piece of cake to replace thereafter. It is a great price and great quality. Have been using this model for over 10 years. My ice comes out very clear and no taste issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work perfectly as expected. No frills, no problems. Essentially, old clogged filter snaps out, new filter snaps is. I finally installed a coupling to permit water flow outside the loop to get the initial carbon loading out of the way. Then snap back into place and finished!

It seems to work o.k., unlike the Home Depot version which does not work without buying special connectors for $20 or so. On the GE just push the tubes in and it doesn't leak. I cannot comment on the filtration. I guess it is working.
