June 3, 2015

Water, Inc., a maker of drinking water filtration products, has announced that its elite BG-12000 Body Glove Water Filter system is one of the first to pass the new NSF/ANSI Standard 401 – Pharmaceuticals: Emerging Compounds/Incidental Contaminants. The certification proves that the BG-12000 by Water, Inc. significantly reduces the presence of select pharmaceuticals, over-the-counter medications and chemicals used in manufacturing that are currently found in drinking water. 

According to an investigation conducted by the Associated Press, a variety of pharmaceuticals have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans. There have been a number of health concerns regarding these and other contaminants introduced to drinking water through sewage, uncontrolled drug disposal and agricultural and manufacturing runoff. The BG-12000 Body Glove Water Filter System by Water, Inc. is an under-the-sink drinking water system that removes these emerging compounds and incidental contaminants.
