The filter light comes on every six months, regardless of if the filter has been changed during that time. So in essence the filter lasts about six months. There is no measurement for how long until it can't be changed, it's just up-to you on how long you want to wait to change it. Smiley Happy

I am a plumber by trade and deal with water as well as filtration quite often. Part of how long you should wait puts dependent on geographical location coupled with the impurities found within said regions water supply. I recently tested the water at my own house and found that the fridge filter that was close to being scheduled for change was in fact producing waste with more contaminates than the tap. Most filters go by volume of gallons treated rather than time, cause lets face it we all don't drink the same amount of water or have the same number of family members. If you really want clean drinking water look into reverse osmosis and a whole house filtration system.
