If you imagine the Earth’s diameter is 1 meter, then 5nm would be the size of a golf ball compared to the Earth. The filter is packed with these minute particles to firmly catch and resolve bacteria, which are approximately 1000 times larger, mold and odors.

 

 

 

Why is there water inside the container at the back/bottom side of the refrigerator?
