The Epic Smart Shield Universal In-Line Filter is compatible with all Refrigerators and any other appliance because of how it fits into any standard 1/4” water line. The universal fit allows you to upgrade your refrigerator filter without voiding your warranty, which is what often happens when you use an off-brand filter in your existing refrigerator filter space.
The compact filter casing is just 2” deep, allowing a tight installation behind your refrigerator or any other appliance you choose, making it perfect for any size space.

Tools You Will Need:
Scissors or Tube Cutters
Step 1: It is best before any plumbing work in your house to know how to shut off all the water to your home. This is a good thing to know for a lot of different reasons. You do not need to shut off the water to the whole house for this installation but you never know when things go south.
Step 2: Locate the water shut off valve to your refrigerator or appliance. To stop the flow of water, turn the valve from the open position to the closed position.
Step 3: Cut plastic 1/4 line at a 90 degree angle. Filter is designed for standard 1/4 plastic tubing which is industry standard for refrigerators. Place bucket and towel under cut tubing to catch any water that drains from tubing.
Step 4: The direction of the flow is indicated on the filter. Take the tubing coming from the water supply (wall side) and connect it to the "Inlet" side of the filter by pressing tubing firmly into the filter and then try to pull it out. The push fit connection should grab the tubing not allowing it to pull out. Take the tubing connect to your refrigerator or appliance and connect it to the "Outlet" side of the filter using this same method.
Step 5: Turn the water valve back to the "On" position and check for any leaks. There should not be any leaks. If you notice any dripping, turn the water valve back to "Off" position and check all of the connections. You might need to push the tubing into the push fit connection a little harder to get it to connect properly.
