Our Mission:
We are tired of all the misinformation from Water Filtration Companies. Cleanwater.com is a website dedicated to inform consumers about the truth of water.

We provide accurate analysis for each product, ranging from Whole-House Water Systems to Bottled Water. The research materials that we gather are from trustworthy, third-party sources; we try to avoid using dubious information given to us from companies whose main goal is not to inform the consumers, but to generate leads for a sale.

The information comes directly from certification forms provided by independent third party groups. If there was no third party verification provided, we used the claims they made on their websites. The independent resources we focused on include the Water Quality Association, the Underwriters Laboratories, and the National Sanitation Foundation.

Our research was conducted by studying detailed information about different consumer water products. We tried to look at the most popular options in the market to help make it easier for consumers to make a decision. Most consumers lack the time or knowledge of what to look for in certification statements, so we have compiled our findings in the chart above.
