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. An NSF Protocol P231 water filter provides you with clean water, free of some of the most harmful contaminants to public health.
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. P231 drinking water treatment testing and certification ensures you clean drinking water, free of bacteria and viruses.
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 gives you peace of mind when it comes to the quality of your drinking water filtration. Because NSF filter certification is not required for a company to sell water filters, you should be sure to verify that any filter purchase meets or exceeds NSF standards for health effects.
Why NSF? NSF International is an organization that has been making sure food and beverage products and related items are healthy and safe for consumers for over 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.
At Multipure, we have worked hard to earn the best certifications possible for water filters so you can feel completely confident the drinking water you provide for your family is clean, healthy, and safe to drink. Multipure's NSF-certified drinking water treatment systems and solid carbon block filters reduce contaminants in tap water, improving the healthfulness of the water, improving the taste and odor of the water, and improving the overall water quality.
