As an authoritative third-party testing and certification organization, NSF International’s water treatment expert Rick Andrew combined with our 70 years of professional experience in the global water product testing and certification industry to analyze the concerns and questions from consumers on the operation of a water purification product, how to ensure that products can effectively reduce contaminants, how could them purchase a suitable product and more from a third-party certification perspective, and proposed that products get certification can increase consumer’s confidence and help manufactures improve their brand recognition and quality.
NSF International, the global public health organization that led the development of national drinking water standards in the United States, independently tests and certifies drinking water treatment units and filters so consumers can be sure the products meet the material safety and structural integrity requirements outlined in related NSF/ANSI drinking water treatment units standards, for example, materials don’t leach any harmful substances in consumer health into the drinking water, products can withstand certain pressure without leakage and other problems, as well as operating as what the manufacturers claim that they will reduce potentially harmful contaminants.
