The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by
this water filter are not necessarily in all users' water.
Filter life varies depending on local water conditions and the vol-
ume of water used. We recommend that you change your filter
as prescribed by the filter documentation, however, it can be
replaced earlier if there is a drop in water pressure.
You can use a variety of Whirlpool filters with this housing:
WHCF-GD05, WHCF-WHPL, WHCF-WHSW, or WHCF-WHWC.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quali-
ty without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
Systems certified for Cyst reduction may be used on disinfected water
that may contain filterable cysts. EPA Establishment #070595-CT-001
