People buy water treatment systems for many reasons. You may be looking for a system that will reduce unpleasant taste, odor, or discoloration in your water. Or you may need a system that can reduce harmful contaminants, like lead or parasites.
Whatever your reasons and whatever system you choose, there's one important point you need to keep in mind - make certain the system you select will do what it claims it will do. How can you be sure the system you purchase will be effective?
Look for the NSF Mark.
NSF International tests and certifies that products meet the requirements of strict public health standards. The end result for you: assurance that the system will do what it says it will do.
NSF certified systems do more than just pass a test. For a system to become NSF certified, it must meet not just one, but all five of the requirements shown in the chart.
|NSF Certified||Tested to NSF Standards|
|Yes||Contaminant reduction claims are true.||??|
|Yes||The system does not add anything harmful to the water.||??|
|Yes||The system is structurally sound.||??|
|Yes||Advertising, literature and labeling are not misleading.||??|
|Yes||The materials and production processes don't change, giving you consistent product quality over time.||??|
Trust only NSF International to put products through a comprehensive evaluation process, giving you the assurance that they will perform as claimed.
Make sure that the system you buy is "NSF Certified." Look for the NSF Mark on the product and be assured your product meets strict standards for design and performance.
