Drinking Water Treatment Unit Consumer Inquiries

Key highlights from our customer inquiries in January about drinking water treatment units include:

  • About one-third of consumers (38 percent) were looking for help choosing a filter. Another third (33 percent) were looking to confirm if a product was NSF certified.
  • A vast majority of consumers (61 percent) first learn about NSF through seeing a claim of NSF certification from a manufacturer or dealer.
  • Lead topped the list of concerns for consumers who contacted NSF looking for products that could address a specific contaminant. This was followed closely by hard water issues.
  • A vast majority (218 or 87 percent) of calls and emails came from U.S.-based consumers. The three countries from which we received the most inquiries included Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.
