I have what I think is the equivalent HDX (home depot) 5 yr. filter with 1/4" compression fittings and it is install horizontally inline just above the refrigerator top so the refrigerator doesn't hit it when it is pushed back. Works fine. JMS
We had both filters in place on our Whirlpool. Eventually, we started getting smaller ice cubes and soon afterwards, periodic malfunctioning. Service guy comes out and tells us that TWO filters is TOO much restriction! The ice maker needs a certain level of water pressure; two filters lower the pressure TOO much! Put the Whirlpool plug in place of the Whirlpool filter, making sure that it’s installed correctly; the inline external Ecopure will function wonderfully, and should last three to five years-depending on how much drinking water you use. This 5 year filter is a monstrously great deal! If you change your internal filter every six months for five years you’d have spent $350! $32, give or take, for 4-5 years, is so obvious a strategy, even this ‘ol boy can see it! Heaven help us!
you can install under sink. put one filter on cold another on hot. if this sounds like too much consider a whole house filter - check out pelican filters on Homedepot site
The filter has a arrow: in at the bottom of arrow ➡️ And out to the fridge at the top of arrow.

You can. But.... If the Fridge has a internal Filter, you will need to leave that filter in. If it is a smarter Fridge that alerts you to replace the filter, just reset it.
If your hard water has caused deposits in your ice maker a water filter won’t fix it. There might be smaller diameter water lines inside your ice maker that would be affected before your water dispenser.
A Reverse Osmosis will generally remove salt. This type of filter will not.
