Now comes with a smaller o-ring in the box, which fixed the leaking,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Water Sentinel WSG-1 Replacement Fridge Filter (Tools & Home Improvement)
I almost bought the Brita brand filter again after reading about all the people experiencing leak problems, but I couldn't resist the savings. I've used the original GE MWF filter in my GE fridge, then switched to the Brita brand and have replaced several of those. I just recently found the WaterSentinal brand and it's about a third of the cost of the Brita. I went to install it in my fridge and like many others my fridge just sprayed water everywhere. It screwed in all the way like it was supposed to, but wouldn't stay sealed. When I opened the box I noticed another o-ring in there with a note that stated if it leaked then use this o-ring, so I quickly swapped out the o-ring and I was in business. I ran it for 5 minutes as they say to clear all the crud out, and I'm pleased to say that this filter works just as well as either the GE or Brita filter ever did. The flow is also noticeably faster too. Water and ice from this filter tastes the same, and I saved a bunch of cash! I'll be buying again for sure.

Thank you, I was about to give up on buying this but the explanation about the O ring renders a lot of these negative reviews moot; I assume at the time they used it they didn't include the optional O ring, but now they do and that's awesome. Thanks.

No problem. I'm really glad they started including the thinner O-ring in the package, because I'd be pissed too if it didn't have that O-ring. You'd really have to gorilla punch that thing in there while it sprays in your face and on all your food in the fridge with the thicker O-ring.

I've had this product installed for 6 months now, and it has worked flawlessly. I'm ordering another one!
