Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by thelabguy workhorse of a filter
This is a good, solid, workhorse of a filter. I have these installed on two commercial grade ice machines used in residential settings. I recently had to replace the 1st one installed in late 2010 after it clogged. So I got 70-80% of the estimated lifetime. Guess it'd be nice if there was an indicator to show how much filtering capability is available...
Also, it'd be good if it filtered smaller particles. There is sediment and rust at one of the locations that obviously makes it through the filter and shows up in the machine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by StyleKyle In-line water Filter for fridge ice maker
This filter is rated to last 5 years. Not sure if the couplings and connectors to the filter will last that long. If they last that will mean that I don't have to change the filter annually.

Just replaced my first one after 3 or 4 years. I forget how long I've had it. The install is easy (takes 15 minutes.) The water quality is vastly superior to the fridge filter. I am considering adding one under the sink as well. Watts makes a great consumer product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RitaS Way better tasting ice
This filter really takes the yucky taste out of the fridge's ice maker water. Do be sure to follow the flushing instructions before completing the installation. I did have a problem with the line leaking and blowing off the fittings that came with the filter but fixed it by buying a packet of Watts sleeve insert for 1/4 inch tubing at Home Depot. I wish I'd bought the replacement sleeves upfront so I wouldn't have had to make a 2nd trip to the store with a leaky install dripping into a bucket. I mounted it on the wall above the with 2 Velcro straps that I affixed to the wall behind the fridge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dtwc Great tasting water and ice for the price!
Great price when you buy the kit that includes the filter, saddle valve, and both hoses. Very easy install too. I just hope it last the five years as promised. I recommend this filter to any household.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ajhoover75 Worked while it lasted
We bought our house in May and we pitched filter pitcher in the move. Installed a drinking water faucet in place of the sprayer nozzle and added this 5 year filter for 30 bucks over the $20 - 3 month version. By late November the flow was intermittently slow. We have great water but our municipality adds just enough chlorine to affect the taste so the filter isn't working hard by any means. Flow was bad enough to make me pull it, and I found the feed line plugged solid. At first I thought the sediment was from the lines in our 40 yr old house, but it was the interior of the filter disintegrating. I don't think I'll be installing another one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CSSGBMike Great H2O filter
Just bought a new refrigerator, and was not happy about the manufacturer's recommended 6 month replacement of an internal filter @ $50. Installed this filter in the supply line and bypassed the OEM version. Couldn't be happier with the water passing through the filer.

So glad that the Home Depot carries this brand of water filter. The brand is the best of its kind, and the price is right.
