Aquasana’s drinking water filters, both countertop and under the sink, are said to be the first filtration appliances to earn certification to a new protocol developed by NSF International. The protocol is said to verify a water treatment device’s ability to reduce PFOA and PFOS to below the health advisory levels set by the EPA. In the past, PFOA had been used in the manufacturing process of some non-stick cookware.

“Our mission is to deliver the healthiest water possible, and that means working with NSF International to stay ahead of the increasing types of contaminants affecting our nation’s water supply by providing the very best filtration technology and performance,” said Todd Bartee, CEO of Aquasana. “Aquasana is leading the charge as the first to offer families a premium product that is NSF certified to protect against PFOA contamination.”

Exposure to PFOA and PFOS over certain levels may result in adverse health effects including developmental effects to fetuses or to breastfed infants, cancer, liver damage, immune disorders, thyroid disorders and other effects, according to NSF.

“Our new protocol… will help consumers choose a water treatment device that fits their needs and be confident it can reduce these specific contaminants as the manufacturer claims,” added Tina Yerkes, general manager of filtration programs at NSF International.
