Multipure’s January 2020 Spotlight is titled, “The Best in Water Filtration”. This may seem a bold claim, or perhaps even a somewhat grandiose boast, but the fact remains that over five decades, Multipure and our Drinking Water Systems have been at the forefront of drinking water filtration performance.
And by words and phrases like “forefront” or, perhaps, “industry leader,” this means that Multipure offers products that treat a vast array of contaminants, to a greatly significant effect, with third-party tested and verified results.
Let us now further examine the claims of “vast array of contaminants” and “greatly significant effect.” Under NSF/ANSI Standard 42 (Aesthetic Effects), Multipure Drinking Water Systems (DWS) are certified to reduce chlorine by over 99%, chloramine by over 97.5%, and particulates by over 99%. They are also certified to reduce taste and odor effects, but that is more subjective, so actual percentages aren’t listed.
Under NSF/ANSI Standard 53 (Health Effects), Multipure Drinking Water Systems are certified to reduce the presence of arsenic V, asbestos, chlordane, cysts, lead, mercury, MTBE, PCB, radon, toxaphene, turbidity, VOCs, microcystin, PFOA, and PFOS. Furthermore, VOCs actual include treatment certification for 53 additional contaminants, such as chloroform, haloacetonitriles, and trihalomethanes. And of these contaminants, the vast majority are reduced by over 99%. Outliers include toxaphene (92.9% reduction) and radon (94.9% reduction).
Under NSF/ANSI Standard 401 (Emerging Contaminants), Multipure Drinking Water Systems are certified to reduce the presence of atenolol, bisphenol a, carbamazepine, DEET, estrone, ibuprofen, linuron, meprobamate, metolachlor, naproxen, nonylphenol, phenytoin, TCEP, TCPP, and trimethoprim. These are reduced at a minimum of 94.9% (meprobamate) to a maximum of 99% (bisphenol a).
Under NSF Standard P231 (Microbiological Water Purifiers), Multipure Drinking Water Systems are certified to reduce the presence of bacteria, viruses, and live cysts. This data is even more eye-opening, in that Multipure offers certified water treatment of 6-factor bacteria reduction (99.9999%), 4-factor virus reduction (99.99%), and almost 4-factor cyst reduction (99.95%).
Don’t just take my word for all of this, though. You can view Multipure’s NSF listings to see for yourself. And you can see how Multipure’s certifications compare to the water treatment industry as a whole by clicking here.
This is what I meant when I mentioned “third-party tested and verified”. As provided by the link above, you can see the NSF listings for each category of drinking water treatment discussed. NSF is an invaluable resource because as an organization, it is the gold standard for third-party testing and verification of many consumer health goods. NSF holds some of the most rigorous standards for product testing, in part because it is impartial and separate from the industries and products it tests. For the testing percentage data, you can view the specific testing results here, or for the Aqualuxe, here.
This is why Multipure proudly claims to be an industry leader in drinking water treatment. While some products may only treat a small handful of contaminants, and other products may claim to treat a broad array of contaminants – but offer no third-party testing and verification data – Multipure offer exceptional performance, with the proof to back it up.
