Frost & Sullivan chose us for their 2019 award based on the following qualifications:

  • Consistent demonstration of leadership within the category by introducing innovative, best-in-class water filtration solutions for the home.
  • Leveraging a customer-driven approach to develop new products that tackle emerging contaminants.
  •  Becoming the first water filtration brand to receive certification from NSF International for the reduction of polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
  • The introduction of our OptimH2O Whole House Filter: the first whole house water filtration system available direct to consumers tested and certified to reduce both PFAS,  lead and cysts throughout the home.  

“Aquasana is at the forefront of innovation in residential water filtration in the United States,” said Seth Cutler, Principal Consultant. “By listening to its customers, Aquasana was able to identify PFAS as a growing concern early on, ahead of its competitors, and develop the first drinking water filtration systems certified to address it.”

As we’ve discussed on our blog before, identifying, assessing, and reducing PFAS contamination is one of the biggest environmental and public health issues in the United States. PFAS, and in particular perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), are chemical compounds that have been used in many products for their fire retardant, non-stick, and water-proof characteristics. Unfortunately, PFAS has been shown to have detrimental impacts on human health, and in some cases, has shown a correlation to an increase in cancer. In 2016, before there was an official testing protocol in place for PFAS, we worked with the NSF to develop and become the first in the market receive certification for NSF P473: a proven method for the reduction of PFOA and PFOS from drinking water.

Earlier this year, we introduced the first whole house filter available direct to consumers tested and certified for the reduction of PFOA/PFOS, lead and cysts. Named one of the Best New Home Products of 2019 by This Old House, the Aquasana OptimH2O® whole house filter is certified to reduce more than 99% of lead and cysts and 98% of PFOA/PFOS, and also reduces 90% of chlorine/chloramines from every tap.
