Std. 401 Certified Products
Popular Multipure drinking water systems such as Aqualuxe, and Aquaversa have a variety of certifications that let you know our water filters give you some of the purest, cleanest water possible, filtering out a wide range of contaminants to provide you and your family with better drinking water. These certifications include NSF 401 which helps demonstrate that your filtered drinking water is safer and healthier.
The NSF/ANSI 401 water filter certification is for "Incidental Contaminants and Emerging Compounds." Multipure products are certified to filter and reduce contaminants known to potentially cause negative health effects. However, many contaminant compounds may occur in unfiltered drinking water whose health effects are not yet fully known.
Incidental contaminants and emerging compounds may exist in your drinking water, but the concentration is low enough that they are not officially considered a health concern. At Multipure, we prefer that your drinking water be as free of any potentially harmful contaminants as possible, which is why we take great pride in our NSF 401 certification.
What the NSF Standard 401 certification means is the NSF Public Safety and Health Organization has verified our certified filters meet their high standards for emerging compound and incidental contaminant reduction. This verification is the result of stringent, rigorous, and consistent testing of our facilities and products by experts from NSF.
Our NSF Standard 401 water filters have been certified and verified for reduction of the compounds atenolol, bisphenol A, carbamazepine, DEET, estrone, ibuprofen, linuron, meprobamate, metolachlor, naproxen, nonylphenol, phenytoin, TECP, TCPP, and trimethoprim.
If you are not familiar with NSF, you may wonder how you can rely on them to accurately certify our filters. An examination of the history of the NSF will show you that they are one of the most respected organizations in the world when it comes to food and beverage quality control.
NSF is an accredited third-party organization that is independent of any food and beverage company. They have been certifying products since 1944 and have successfully certified millions of products. Their reputation is trusted from local regulatory bodies all the way to federal and even international regulatory agencies.
We want you to feel completely confident in the effectiveness of our products to protect your drinking water. We are quite proud of our NSF Standard 401 certification and our other NSF certifications and are more than happy to discuss them with you in more detail.
