Yes it is. as long as there is still water coming out from the dispenser.

the red light only indicates that it is about time to replace the filter. could be 6 months old. this is controlled by time, so check your water pressure at the dispenser, if it is still strong, then you could still use it .

depending on your condition, some filters would be clogged already even if the light is still green and there is no more water coming out of your dispenser.

normal time to replace the filter is six months.

Is rain water safe to drink?

Rain passes through the atmosphere before falling to the ground. So it can pick up any contaminant present in the atmosphere.

It's not a great idea to drink rain water falling near chemical plants or near the plumes of power plants, paper mills, etc. Don't drink rainwater that has run off of plants or buildings because you could pick up toxic chemicals from these surfaces. Similarly, don't collect rainwater from puddles or into dirty containers.

When you initially soak the bag in water make sure to squeeze it lightly and shake to release all the air bubbles. Also, you should pour out the first couple pitchers of water after using a new filter as it takes time to break in. This way all of the gray or black filter water will be gone by the time you wish to drink. For more water filter and pitchers go to

I heard you can put bleach in water to make it safe to drink. Is this true?

Yes. If you are planning a camping trip, having a way to drink water is essential. If bleach is the method you prefer, buy some chlorine bleach. All you need to do is add two drops of bleach per quart of water and shake. Wait at least 30 minutes before drinking.

Is safe to drink the water after is has been through a purifier?

If your filters are up to date and the water tastes ok then it should be good enough to drink. Make sure that you change your filters on a regular basis.

We have owned a Britta for over 30 years. Recently when changing filters the water has a greenish color. Hoe do we get rid of it? Is it safe to drink?

If you mean a water softner on tap, then you will need to sanitize it with Sodium Metabisulphate or similar. Fill the unit, not the filter, with a solution and leave for 10 minutes then flush it slowly through the pipes, Baby sterilization liquid will work. You have to remove the algae.
It probably is safe to drink but I wouldn't!
Hope that helps.

Absolutely! This is a common problem when filters have not been changed at regular intervals, improper method of changing filters, contaminating the housings and filters introduces bacteria into the system and there is no better place for it to live and prosper. Any drinking water system needs regular sanitizing to prevent the buildup of bacteria. If the drain is not properly plumbed in with an air gap, cross contamination can occur from the the DWV line also.
This system is no longer safe to drink from. The good news is it can be sanitized and filters replaced to get you back in business. sells a sanitizing solution for RO systems and the filters you need also.

Which is the best RO system to use for an LG side-by-side fridge?

You realize you asked a simple question for a very complex answer. Water supply is the first key and that water supply depends if the reverse osmosis has been applied there before reaching your refrigerator. I can name many countries where the water you see you cannot drink but only purchase purified water. If you have clean and safe drinking water in your home then use the recommended filter that LG reccomends. If not then I recommend Omni Pure. Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a light on red saying i need too change a filter dont know where too look it is a whirlpool

Not sure which whirlpool, but these are water filters for the drinking and ice water.
it's normally found inside the fridge compartment behind a plastic panel and not necessarily on the side the water dispenser is on.
Sort of like finding a trap door!!!
