What's In Your Water?

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - by Water2Drink

Before spending your hard-earned dollars on a water filtration system, you should begin by knowing exactly what is in your water that may be harmful to your health and the health of your loved ones.  Once specific contaminants and their levels of concentration are identified, you can then evaluate the best water filtration system to use to remove those contaminants.

If you are unsure of what’s in your water, there are a few steps you can take.  The place to begin is with your local water supplier.  Federal law requires that they issue an annual Water Quality Report.  If the water provider cannot supply this information, recommends that you have your water tested prior to purchasing any water filtration system.

Just as the water filtration system you purchase should be certified by a nationally recognized certification organization like NSF, the public health and safety organization, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that you select a water testing laboratory that is certified by your state.  You can call the state certification officer, or click over to the EPA’s website at  to identify a certified laboratory. 

Taking the time to have your water analyzed will give you the information you need to make a thorough, educated decision about water filtration. provides links to Multipure Product Performance Data sheets, so our customers can directly compare Multipure’s NSF-certified performance levels to their water report.
