Join us in celebrating 25 years of improving the health and wellbeing of American households with cleaner, healthier water! To ring in the quarter-century milestone, we’re giving away 25 prizes – worth up to $449.99 in value each – along with huge savings of up to 58% off our countertop, under sink, and whole house water filters. Starting today through September 30th, visit @Aquasana on Instagram to enter for the chance to win one of the 25 prizes, including our award-winning Clean Water Machine, Shower Filter or new SmartFlow® Reverse Osmosis

“It all started with our shower filter, which was born from a father’s quest to help soothe his son’s respiratory illness, which was exacerbated during bath time,” said Derek Mellencamp, General Manager of Aquasana. “Two and a half decades later, we remain laser focused on finding newer, more effective ways to protect families from potentially harmful contaminants in their home’s water. From becoming the first water filtration brand to achieve NSF certification for reducing PFOA/PFOS in 2016, to our newest SmartFlow® Reverse Osmosis which reduces the broadest range of contaminants in Aquasana history, we’ve been at the forefront as new contaminants emerge and remain iron clad in our dedication as we look ahead to the next quarter century.”  

Concerns at the tap are on the rise, and it’s no wonder given the growing frequency of water crises in the news, including lead contamination, PFAS hotspots, train derailments, natural disasters, and the ever-growing omnipresence of microplastics. It was recently reported that an estimated 45% of the nation’s tap water contains the “forever chemicals” known as PFAS, and the EPA recently announced that nearly a tenth of the nation’s drinking water service lines contain lead. According to our recent fifth annual national Water Quality Survey, concern over drinking water quality in the U.S. has more than doubled over the past two years to 70%, and now nine in 10 Americans (91%) filter their drinking water at home – up 25% from 2020.  

“It all started with our shower filter, which was born from a father’s quest to help soothe his son’s respiratory illness, which was exacerbated during bath time."

“Installing a water filter is an easy and effective way to instantly improve the overall health and wellness of a home,” added Mellencamp. “Concerns about our drinking water will continue to climb as emerging contaminants like PFAS, a diverse group of 10,000+ chemicals, become more pervasive. Thankfully, awareness of water quality issues and contaminants in the U.S. is significantly higher than 25 years ago. We’re seeing more and more people and families in the U.S. who are choosing to protect themselves from potentially harmful contaminants by using a water filter at home.”  

Since day one, we have been at the forefront in protecting U.S. households from emerging drinking water contaminants, from chlorine and chloramines, to lead, pharmaceuticals, herbicides and pesticides, and now PFAS and microplastics. After introducing our first shower filter in 1999, we went on to develop our high performance Rhino® whole house water filtration systems, along with our advanced Claryum® filtration technology for under sink and countertop systems, which removes bad contaminants while preserving the beneficial minerals in water, including calcium, potassium and magnesium. In 2014, we introduced the first ever electric countertop system to filter water at the touch of a button, which evolved over the years and many iterations into our award-winning Clean Water Machine. In 2019, we introduced the first whole house filter certified for the reduction of lead, cysts and PFOA/PFOS, which was awarded one of This Old House Magazine’s “Top 20 Best New Home Products” the same year. 

Today, we’re proud to offer a full array of whole house, shower, and drinking water filters to protect homes, including under sink and countertop systems that are tested and certified to remove up to 99.99% of 90 contaminants, including chlorine, fluoride, arsenic, lead, pesticides, PFOA/PFOS, microplastics and more. We’re looking forward to leading the charge in protecting homes with clean, healthy water at home and creating innovative solutions to tackle new contaminants as they continue to emerge – for the next 25 years and beyond.
