Pitcher was first to be certified by NSF for lead reduction
Zero Technologies LLC announced that its ZeroWater filter pitcher has been tested and certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA) for the reduction of copper against NSF/ANSI Standard 53 – Health Effects. The new certification is a testament to the quality and technological advances of the ZeroWater patented five-stage, Dual Ion-Exchange water filtration technology, which is the first and only filter pitcher to achieve a lead reduction certification on the newest NSF standards.
This new certification allows ZeroWater to further bridge the gap between water from the municipal treatment plant and what comes out of the tap. After treatment at the local municipality level, water can pick up dissolved solids, including copper and lead, as it travels through pipes to the faucet. To eliminate concerns of adverse health effects by the consumption of potentially high levels of copper and lead, ZeroWater has taken all the necessary measures to achieve certification for the reduction of the traces of copper and lead that may be found in tap water.
“This latest certification underscores the evolution of water filtration technology available directly to the consumer to improve the taste and safety of their tap water,” said Doug Kellam, CEO of Zero Technologies. “ZeroWater can now take yet another step forward in delivering a great-tasting, economic alternative to purified bottled water. Anyone making the transition from bottled water or conventional carbon-based filtration can now make a better informed choice when it comes to comparing the various possibilities for at-home water filtration systems.”
The product also has received certifications by the WQA for the removal of iron, zinc and aluminum, as well as certifications from NSF International for the removal of chromium, mercury, chlorine and hydrogen sulfide.
