If you are thinking of buying a home water treatment device, you are probably concerned about your drinking water. Some common concerns are:
- The appearance or taste of the water such as the odor of chlorine or an unpleasant mineral flavor.
- Worries about a specific contaminant that might be in the water.
- A family member may be vulnerable to illness due to a weakened immune system or other factor.
- Excessive staining or deposits on your plumbing.
Whatever the reason, you want to be sure that the device you are using will meet your needs. You want to be sure that the device will reduce contaminants as stated on the packaging or advertisements. For each water treatment device, information is provided on a document called the Performance Data Sheet and a California Product Worksheet. The Performance Data Sheet covers the following:
- Which contaminants the device has been certified to reduce.
- How many gallons of water can be produced by the device per day.
- Limitations and disclaimers on the use of the device.
The California Product Worksheet contains informational items required by California law that may not be included in the Product Data Sheet. Be aware that all products listed here have been tested and certified by an independent laboratory as having met the performance specifications contained in both the Product Data Sheet and the California Product Worksheet. These two documents have also been reviewed and approved by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), and they are available here for your use. For questions, please contact our Water Treatment Device Program Coordinator.
Initially, all registered devices whose data sheets have been reviewed by the SWRCB are displayed. You may filter by Manufacturer by using the alphabetic index below. (example: C for Culligan). If you wish only to see those water treatment devices that remove Arsenic (III or V) and/or Nitrate, use the SEARCH feature with Equals Yes. Click on the to view the datasheets.
