The Home Water Filtration Company Releases Two New Chloramine-Reducing Products
AUSTIN, Texas, March 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aquasana will make a splash at the International Home + Housewares Show in ChicagoMarch 2-5 with the introduction of two groundbreaking filtration products. Both represent industry leadership for chloramine contamination reduction.
Aquasana is the first consumer water filtration brand to alert consumers about the need to protect themselves from the harmful effects of the mixture of chlorine and ammonia, known as chloramines. Many states have begun to use chloramines to treat water, as it is a cost-effective method and more stable than pure chlorine.
To combat this threat, Aquasana is unveiling a groundbreaking filter pitcher system and an under-the counter system. The pitcher represents a game-changer in the water filtration industry. Not only is it the fastest pitcher on the market, it also features the industry's only NSF certification to remove harmful chloramines and reduces 10 times the contaminants of the leading drip pitcher filter
"This pitcher is the result of years of research into the proliferation of chloramines in the United States," said Aquasana CEO Todd Bartee. "We are pleased to offer a full line of chloramine-reducing products for the home."
Consumers will no longer wait for water to drip through a filter. The system can filter one half-gallon in about one minute. The system fits on the countertop and can be stored in the refrigerator once filtered. Aquasana's sleek design means contaminants stay in the filter, so consumers only see healthy, clean water.
Aquasana's under-the-counter system, the AQ-5300, is the brand's most powerful water filter. What the brand calls the most cost-effective, filtration system in the D-I-Y segment is NSF-certified to remove 97 percent of chloramines and 99 percent of chlorine. The eco-friendly cartridge exchange system features filters that reduce more than 60 contaminants for up to six months. This system has also been independently tested to reduce pharmaceuticals.
Additionally, the EQ-400 whole-home system, based on a research partnership with the University of Texas School of Engineering, reduces 90 percent of chloramines and 97 percent of chlorine.
Aquasana is a leading water filtration company, based in Austin, Texas focused on providing best-in-class water filtration products for residential and commercial use. The company's consumer products include drinking water filters, shower filters and whole-home water filter systems that remove over 60 harmful contaminants from water including chlorine, chloramines, herbicides, pesticides, industrial solvents, lead and mercury. All Aquasana water filters are engineered to be environmentally friendly and to preserve the healthy minerals in water.
