NSF: What Is It?

NSF NSF International is an unbiased accrediting organisation founded in 1944 that conducts comprehensive testing on water treatment products to guarantee that customers are provided with high-quality, safe solutions that accomplish what they are supposed to do. Additionally, NSF is the top international supplier of risk management solutions for public healthcare and wellbeing.

 

The Risk of New Contaminants

Pollutants, herbicides, prescription medications, and detergents are a few of the most prevalent yet unseen toxins. Most of these regular contaminants have fallen under two categories based on what it affects – health or taste.

However, emerging contaminants have been put under a new category of concerns over water quality. Contaminants have been put under a new category of concerns over water quality. This is because while trace evidence of these contaminants has been detected in our drinking water, their precise negative effects have not yet been established. Therefore, a separate testing standard was developed to specifically monitor and protect from the threat of emerging contaminants.

 

The NSF/ANSI 401: What Does It Mean?

NSF/ANSI 401, an American National Standard for water purity, has certified our HomePure Nova. With this accreditation, the HomePure Nova’s capacity to eliminate up to 15 pollutants from this list of emerging contaminants has been confirmed. The 15 pollutants include new kinds of pesticides and fertilizers, compounds used as flame retardants, surfactants, and over-the-counter and pharmaceutical medications.
