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 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.

Simple install. Remember to run about five gallons of water through the filter before you bring it online. It does the job for which it was intended.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrhh simple and well constructed
I've purchased this exact filter type for many years, one for a sink tap and one for refrigerator ice maker. I replace them every 4/5 years. It seems to improve taste and clarity. Obviously a single stage filter like this cannot compare with multistage or osmosis systems, but for a simple long lasting in-line application, this works well. Much cheaper and more effective than the typical built-in refrigerator filter. Comes with assorted connections and fittings for compression or threaded lines.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by TJ88 Good filter for fridge ice maker & water dispenser
I have had this filter for over 4 years now & it's time to replace it. It didn't last the 5 years but I have 3 kids who use alot of ice and water from the fridge. This filter definately improved the taste & smell of the ice. It isn't as good as our RO filter at the sink but it was much better than the previous 1 yr in-line filter we replaced. I am very sensitive to smell and couldn't stand to use our ice before getting this filter. I normally make tea, lemonade, etc.. using RO filtered water, so when I used ice from the fridge I could definetely smell the ice. When we installed this Watt's filter the smell was greatly improved. We never had a plastic taste. I am definely going to purchase this filter again!

This product is great instead of having to pay for the expensive filters within refrigerators, you can put this in an bipass the other one, saving a lot of money.
