Just realised I'm overdue to replace the cartridge in our two-year-old fridge.


I expected that I might get it at Bunnings or M10 but apparently not (looking online). Also can't get sense from the Harvey Norman or Noel Leeming sites on this.


There are some specialist retailers online but the whole thing seems to be a little less simple and less common than I thought it would be. eg. it's not immediately obvious how to align the fridge and cartridge model numbers.


Would appreciate help and comment. Cheers.

Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Thanks Jason - I had seen that place but these specialist stores seem somewhat pricey (even though I don't really know what price to expect). Thought there might be a more commonplace outlet that I hadn't thought of. I did see a place on Trademe that seemed to have more reasonable prices.


EDIT: Re-checked TruWater and found they had the cartridge I wanted on special and the price was fine with me - done - so thanks again Jason.

Hopefully you went with a Bosch one, and not a cheap alternative. I made the mistake of paying $50 for a cheap one earlier this year, and regretted it. The water would come out at half the speed.
After a few months I purchased a Bosch one again, and water back up to speed...
I’ll be sticking to the OEM filter from now on.
