Contaminant Reduction Claims

At NSF, we certify a wide variety of water treatment systems from filtration to reverse osmosis designed to reduce contaminants. To help you find the best water filter for your home or office, we have listed certified products based on the contaminants we are regularly asked about. Keep in mind that if a filter type is not listed, there may be no systems of that type certified to reduce that specific contaminant. Contact us with your questions.
