We’re thrilled to announce Aquasana has been named an Eco Excellence Award winner by b/well magazine for the sixth year in a row. Our Claryum® Direct Connect water filter won the Best Water Filtration System category for its easy-to-install design, maximum contaminant reduction, and significant role in reducing plastic waste.



About The Eco Excellence Awards and Aquasana’s Selection

Now in its 11th year, the Eco-Excellence Awards™ is a natural and family-focused media awards program that recognizes exceptionalism in sustainability, health, and wellness. Sponsored by b/well, a global health, and wellness platform formerly known as Natural Child World magazine, the months-long selection process started with in-depth product reviews conducted by a jury of media editors, celebrity judges, influencers, b/well’s Parents Lab, and wellness experts. The judges then narrowed down over 560 different entries to five finalists per category and opened the final selection process to public voting. 

Chosen by 350,000 voters (about half the population of Vermont), our Claryum® Direct Connect under sink system beat out multiple water filters from brands including Pelican and Waterdrop, among others. An innovative combination of our patented Claryum® filtration technology and easy DIY access that can be installed virtually anywhere with a sink, this powerful filter is clearly a winner!

Claryum® Direct Connect Features

Claryum® Direct Connect makes self-installation and daily use easier than ever. Introduced late last year, it’s an easy-to-install, fast-flowing water filter that removes up to 99% of 77 contaminants, including lead, the "forever chemicals" PFOA and PFOS, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, asbestos, chloramines, chlorine, and more. That’s 15 times more contaminants than the leading pitcher filters.

The best part? No plumber is required! The under sink filter connects directly to any cold-water line – whether in a kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, dorm room, or butler’s pantry – for quick, DIY access to clean, healthy water through an existing faucet. We’re always looking for new ways 

to provide families with easy, instant access to clean drinking water. Over the past year, the unique challenges presented by the pandemic have made do-it-yourself accessibility more important than ever. With Claryum® Direct Connect, you get powerful contaminant reduction without having to bring someone into your home for installation. That’s a major win in itself.

Keeping in line with Aquasana’s commitment to sustainable design, each replaceable filter lasts six months or 784 gallons. That’s the equivalent of 6,250 plastic bottles kept out of U.S. landfills per filter. Just like with installation, filter replacement is designed for ease with a simple twist-off exchange. No need to disconnect hoses or water lines.
