Let’s take a look at a particularly impressive brand of refrigerator filters - Samsung. Samsung may be best known for mobile phones and similar electronic products, but Samsung also manufactures all sorts of other products and appliances, not least of which are refrigerators. And as with any modern refrigerator, Samsung refrigerators usually come with their very own drinking water filters – the “Waterdrop” Samsung refrigerator water filters.
We’ll make this a rather detailed review as we will go over all the Samsung Filters’ features and extras, we will discuss how useful these features actually are to the potential customer – you – and we will also give you our thoughts on what are the reasons to purchase and not to purchase a Samsung refrigerator water filter (i.e. whether or not to consider Samsung’s refrigerator water filters as a positive or a negative for Samsung’s refrigerators as whole). Then, to wrap things up we will review what Samsung’s customers think of their water filters before coming to our overall conclusion.
Manufactured in South Korea, the DA97-11433A is an O.E.M authorized part that fits in most Samsung refrigerator models. It also comes with a 90-day factory warranty to guarantee its quality.

This NSF certified O.E.M replacement part needs to be replaced after every six months. It works at a flow rate of 1.9lpm, between 4.4 and 38 degrees Celsius and a pressure of between 25 psi and 125 psi. The filter uses Activated Carbon Function technology and can filter up to 2464 liters of water within six months.

This Swift Green filter is compatible with other Samsung models and other refrigerator brands.

Like other filters of the brand, this model is NSF safety, and functionality certified and sports a simple design for ease of filter installation.
The Aqua-Pure Plus water filter series is designed to offer clean and clear drinking water, free of metals, cysts, and other contaminants.

The Aqua Pure Plus is a high-efficiency filtration refrigerator water filter thanks to the revolutionized filtration technology that uses carbon as a filterer. The carbon block used in the filter sports millions of active sites giving it the ability to filter contaminants completely. Even better, the filter can break contaminants catalytically just like a catalytic converter.
The process for Samsung refrigerator water filter replacement varies as each model of refrigerator differs in the placement of its internal water filter. Naturally, this will also mean that every model will have a different replacement procedure.
Each replacement filter will come with a set of instructions should you encounter any difficulty during the installation of your new fridge filter.
As you can see, each Samsung refrigerator water filter tends to vary in specification. While all of them are made out of quality materials and have a great design, not all of them are suitable for every refrigerator, and some are indeed slower at filtering water than others.
So, while we can safely recommend looking into Samsung refrigerators and Samsung refrigerator water filters, our key advice is that you should always research whether the filter you’re look at is actually suitable for your refrigerator and your needs for fresh filtered water.
