Water Purifier Line Receives WQA Certification to EPA Standard

The certification provides independent third-party validation of the line's performance

TST Water purifiers UltraGuard ultrafiltration

TST Water announced the certification of its UltraGuard line to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Guide Standard and Protocol for Microbiological Water Purifiers.

The completion of the Water Quality Assn. (WQA) Certification to the EPA Guide Standard and Protocol for Microbiological Water Purifiers provides independent third-party certification of performance.

The line of point-of-entry (POE) systems is engineered around a U.S.-manufactured and patented ultrafiltration membrane.  Delivering 0.02-micron filtration, the systems work off of normal line pressure providing high flow rates with low pressure drop to remove colloids, bacteria, cysts, viruses, turbidity, tannins and other particles from water.

“We are pleased to complete this phase of development on the UltraGuard line,” said Shannon Murphy, product and certification manager at TST Water. “Historically we have had superior performance in the field with the UltraGuard systems; however the completion of the EPA Guide standard provides additional third-party validation. Additionally, we are very pleased with the exceptional results obtained during the certification as over the life of the test we achieved non-detect effluents on all reporting levels for both R. terrigena and MS-2 Phage.” 

TST Water is committed to the support and growth of the industry through increased participation with the WQA, as well as the Water Quality Research Foundation by becoming a Dignitary Partner earlier this year.  UltraGuard represents a new venture for TST Water’s group of product offerings by expanding into the dealer and distributor market channels.
