Certification vs. Compliance: What Is the Difference?
As a market leader in the water industry, NSF tests and certifies a wide range of filtration media products, including media designed for municipal water filtration, point-of-use drinking water treatment units and pool equipment.
NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 evaluates the health effects of filtration media for municipal drinking water, including the sand, activated carbon and garnet media used to reduce particles from municipal water systems.
NSF/ANSI 42 evaluates the material safety of filtration media designed for residential drinking water systems, including activated carbon in point-of-use water filters.
NSF/ANSI/CAN 50 evaluates the performance and physical properties of filtration media used in pools, spas and hot tubs, including sand for pool sand filters.
Certifying your filtration media products to NSF public health standards ensures regulatory compliance, and NSF-listed manufacturers receive many benefits from working with our team of technical experts, including:
