Whirlpool EveryDrop EDR1RXD1 Refrigerator Water Filter

The EveryDrop EDR1RXD1 is another refrigerator water filter that does a pretty decent job at cleaning water. It’s NSF 42, 53 and 401 certified, capable of reducing more than 24 different contaminants, including waterborne parasites, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and up to 99% of lead present in the water.

The EveryDrop EDR1RXD1 is another refrigerator water filter that does a pretty decent job at cleaning water. It’s NSF 42, 53 and 401 certified, capable of reducing more than 24 different contaminants, including waterborne parasites, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and up to 99% of lead present in the water.

Filtration Process

The unit utilizes a triple filtration technology which consists of three different layers of filtration. There’s a top layer that blocks larger particles, a middle micro-filtration layer that captures medium-sized contaminants and an inner adsorption filtration layer which absorbs the microscopic contaminants.

It’s an effective system that will get read of most of the contaminants, but it seems not to perform so well in reducing taste. Many users pointed out that the water still retains chlorine taste and even sometimes tends to have a weird tangy sour taste. 

The water flow is, however, relatively fast (0.75 GPM) but some reported that it gets slow after a couple of months.

Installation

Installation is easy, but you have to flush about 4 gallons of water through before using it. Like the Frigidaire ULTRAWF filter above, this one too needs frequent replacement because it can work efficiently only for 4 to 6 months. It equally faces the same counterfeit problem as a few users reported getting a defective or used filter. 

Overall, if you buy a legitimate one, it will really do its job well plus this is one of the few filters that offer the widest range of compatibility. It’s certified by Whirlpool Corporation to work with their refrigerator models, but it’s also compatible with other brands like KitchenAid, Maytag, JennAir and Amana.
