Aquasana Gets Wirecutter Mention

2-Stage and 3-Stage Max Flow Earn Reviews

Aquasana is pleased to announce that our 2-Stage Under Counter Water Filter has been featured in Wirecutter, a New York Times company. Our 3-Stage Max Flow was featured, as well.

Aquasana was chosen because of our commitment to product excellence, certification standards, and the ability to provide manywirecutter_body with access to clean, healthy water.

Specifically, our 2-Stage and 3-Stage Max Flow met the criteria of:

  • NSF Certifications for chlorine, lead and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
  • NSF Standard 401, which covers pharmaceuticals
  • Minimum filter capacity of 500 gallons or six months filter lifespan
  • Overall cost-competitiveness
  • Wide availability
  • No-nonsense marketing
  • Reputation and reviews
  • Hardware quality

Here’s what Wirecutter had to say: “We recommend the Aquasana AQ-5200 because its certifications are among the best of any system we’ve found…Its most important feature by far is that its filters have the best ANSI/NSF certifications among our contenders, including chlorine, chloramine, lead, mercury, VOC, multiple “emerging contaminants,” and PFOA and PFOS. Beyond that, its faucet and plumbing hardware are made of solid metal, which is superior to the plastic that some other manufacturers use. And this system is also extremely compact.”

We recommend the Aquasana AQ-5200 because its certifications are among the best of any system we’ve found.

The Aquasana 2-Stage is NSF Certified to Standards 42, 53, 401, and P473 for the reduction of chlorine taste and odor, chlorine-resistant cysts and bacteria like cryptosporidium, giardia, VOCs, herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, PFOA/PFOS. Using Claryum filtration, this Under Counter Filter ensures that your water keeps all of the healthy minerals your body craves, like calcium, magnesium and potassium. This filter comes with three faucet color options, including oil-rubbed bronze, brushed nickel, and chrome.
