Multipure FAQ


Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions. We have a variety of questions with answers that are very helpful and informative.
  •   1.   What is NSF Certification?
    NSF Certification is an assurance of quality and integrity. It states that:
     
          The system meets the contaminant reduction claims of the manufacturer.
          The system is not adding anything harmful to the water.
          The system is structurally sound.
          Advertising, literature, and labeling are not misleading.
          The materials and manufacturing process do not change.
     
    From extensive product testing and material analyses to unannounced plant inspections, NSF undertakes a complete evaluation of every aspect of a product's development before it can earn certification. NSF Certification is not a one-time activity - NSF requires regular on-site inspections of manufacturing facilities, as well as periodic retesting of products against the most current national standards. For the consumer, this allows NSF certified products to be purchased and used with confidence.

    The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce (LVCC) is the largest and most influential business organization in the state of Nevada.
