Multipure FAQ

Multipure demonstrates confidence in its Drinking Water Systems by providing a 90 day money-back guarantee. In addition, all Drinking Water System housings have a lifetime warranty, and all system accessories are warranted for 12 months. 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 Better Business Bureau (BBB) is an organization dedicated to advancing marketplace trust. The BBB accomplishes this mission by: • Creating a community of trustworthy businesses. • Setting standards for marketplace trust. • Encouraging and supporting best practices. • Celebrating marketplace role models. • Denouncing substandard marketplace behavior. Multipure's membership in the BBB is an assurance of its trustworthiness as a business and its use and support of the best business practices. Multipure Drinking Water Systems have been tested and certified by NSF for the reduction of the following contaminants/substances

(*99% is the maximum rate of reduction certified): • Aesthetic Effects (ANSI/NSF Standard 42) - Chlorine by > 99% - Particulate matter down to 0.5 micrometer, submicron (Class I) • Health Effects (ANSI/NSF Standard 53) - Turbidity - Lead - Mercury - PCB (Endocrine Disrupter) - Chlordane (Endocrine Disrupter) - Toxaphene (Endocrine Disrupter) - 1,1-Dichloroethane (Endocrine Disrupter) - Cysts - Trihalomethanes - Asbestos - Volatile Organic Chemicals - MTBE - Chloramines - Arsenic V (MP880 Series) Multipure below counter Drinking Water Systems can be connected to any type of water dispenser or ice maker. Multipure Drinking Water Systems leave in the healthful, naturally-occurring minerals. Minerals are totally dissolved in solution and do not have an actual physical size; thus, the minerals pass through the filter unchanged.

The materials used in Multipure Drinking Water are specially selected for their ability to react with the chemicals in the water but not with natural minerals. The ability to leave the natural, healthful minerals in while reducing harmful contaminants was a vital factor in the development of Multipure's Solid Carbon Block Filter. The medical community has always maintained that certain minerals are essential for a healthy body, and a study by the World Health Organization Workshop found that drinking water with high levels of beneficial, healthful minerals may reduce the risk of heart disease. The biggest problem with hot water is the sloughing off of chemicals/compounds which had been adsorbed to the filter surface. Heat causes the carbon pores to open up, reducing the filtering effectiveness, and resulting in lead or chemicals being released into the water.

This performance degradation occurs even though hot water is usually below 212 degrees F, and therefore not hot enough to alter the raw materials or cause damage to the filter itself. If someone does run hot water through the filter, immediately run cold water through the filter for at least 3 minutes, to cool and flush its contents. Do not drink hot water passed through the filter. Do not allow water to sit in the unit for extended periods of time (10 or more days). If the unit will sit, unused, for 10 or more days, drain all the water from the system and remove the filter. Upon your return, reconnect the filter for normal use.
