Testing performed by Envirotek Laboratories, Wilmington, DE (www.enviroteklab.com) 856-583-0045, an EPA/NELAC accredited laboratory EPA-ID#: NJ01298. All tests, unless otherwise reported were performed in accordance with NSF Standards 42, 53, 244, 401 & 473 for water quality and the reduction of chemicals and contaminants. The challenge water was spiked with the substances indicated below and then passed through the filter. The results are stated in the report below. All contaminants were reduced to a concentration equal to or less than the permissible limits set forth by NSF.
