Re: Fridge/freezer cooling

There is NO filter I would ever trust to remove the contaminants from a refrigerant leak into the drinking water without rather sophisticated testing to be sure it actually worked with the actual chemicals at issue.

Propylene glycol is the basis for many of the non-toxic heat transfer solutions used in the food industry. It is usually easy to detect by taste in plain water before most onboard test methods would measure its presence.  You likely consume some every day in your normal food intake.  If you are concerned about it, you COULD just circulate water, but you would have issues with biological growth and corrosion, but still way better than using salt water!
