Q: Hi Ed: We just purchased a new refrigerator with a filtered automatic ice maker. Now I would like my kitchen sink water to be filtered. I don’t want to change or alter the kitchen faucet. Is it possible to add a filter to our existing faucet?

A: If you want to filter the water for your existing kitchen faucet, there is a setup called an inline faucet filter. Usually this type of filter can be set up inside the cabinet directly under the kitchen sink.
These special water filters are small wall-mounted cartridge filters that can easily be changed on a regular basis. Also, most filters of this type are connected only to the cold water feed line of the kitchen faucet.
