No wonder I cannot find it! Where do you recommend adding a universal filter? Is there a way to easily add it underneath, or would I be better off adding it at the main supply to the fridge?

I always do it at the tubing behind the fridge and then use the supplied clamps to affix it to the back of the refrigerator.

It's a built in, and I don't have any access to the back.

"Back" can also include anywhere in the tubing from the water tap valve to the refrigerator's water inlet valve that allows reasonable access and installation of the inline filter. Needn't be immediately behind the refrigerator.

I guess I was exaggerating a bit…I apologize. the water tastes stale, and the ice cubes aren't clear. The refrigerator is 10 years old, so I'm guessing that there is a build up of minerals in the water line and a filter would help. Our tap water is better.

depends where in the "line" has the build-up and where in the line you place the filter
