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.
