In testing drinking water systems, NSF certifies that:
- The system meets the contaminant reduction claims of the manufacturer
- The system is not adding anything harmful to the water
- The system is structurally sound
- Advertising, literature, and labeling are not misleading
- The materials and manufacturing process don't change
For a system to become NSF certified, it must meet the five basic requirements listed above. Certification also means that systems must continue to meet these requirements, which is why annual unannounced inspections of manufacturing facilities are conducted.
The effectiveness of any drinking water treatment device is measured by the performance of its filter. NSF testing in accordance with NSF/ANSI standards provides the consumer with the highest level of assurance that certified products will perform as claimed. A close review of NSF Listings shows that the Multipure Solid Carbon Block filters are the most effective for reducing a broad spectrum of contaminants of aesthetic as well as health concern.
