Std. P231 Certified Products
In addition to its many other certifications, the Multipure Aqualuxe water filter is an NSF P231 certified water filter. If you are familiar with the NSF Standard P231, you know this certification means this filter can make your water much safer to drink. If you have not encountered an NSF P231 water filter before, read on.
What makes the NSF P231 certification special even among NSF water filter certifications is the NSF P231 Standard certifies that these water filters were tested and shown to purify water at the microbiological level. This is a level of certification generally sought out by organizations that require the highest levels of drinking water purity, such as military bases, schools, restaurants, and food processing plants.
Our NSF Standard P231 water filters are certified for their ability to reduce potentially pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and live cysts. Not all water filtration systems can meet this standard. Multipure must subject its facilities, manufacturing processes, and Aqualuxe filter materials to rigorous examination and testing by NSF public safety and health experts to make sure they are effective enough for microbiological filtration. NSF Protocol P231 is a strenuous test to verify that a water purifier such as the Aqualuxe can convert challenging, microbiologically compromised water into pure, safe drinking water. We must update our certification every five years to ensure the consistent quality of our products.
Should NSF certification truly give you peace of mind when it comes to the quality of your drinking water filtration? Absolutely. NSF certification is usually not required for a company to sell water filters, so you should be sure to verify that your filters meet this standard.
Why NSF? NSF is an organization that has been making sure food and beverage products and related items are healthy and safe for consumers for close to 75 years. They base their certification standards for microbiological water purifiers on the recommendations of the EPA's Task Force Report, Guide Standard, and Protocol for Testing Microbiological Water Purifiers (1987) (Annex B), so you can feel certain we are held to a high standard of quality.
You can easily verify the integrity and reputation of NSF. They have certified millions of products over the last three-quarters of a century and are recognized and respected by local, state, federal, and international regulatory agencies. They are a fully accredited, independent third-party organization that has no ties or obligations to any food or beverage company.
