I recently moved to a new house. After a few months I noticed that
the water from the fridge dispenser has white flakes in it, about 1/4"
diameter. The fridge has an internal filter, and the house also has a
filter on the fridge line. I replaced the fridge filter and removed
the line filter's cartridge. There are no white flakes in the regular
tap water. If I run the fridge water for a few gallons, the flakes
are less munerous, but there are still one or two after 2 gallons.
I guess there must be a bunch of junk in the fridge lines. Are these
minerals that I can safely ignore or is this some kind of nasty algae
that I have to clean or replace the fridge lines to eliminate?
This is a Maytag fridge with a PuriClean internal filter.
