Drinking water system components that are used in centralized water treatment plants and water distribution systems up through to the water meter are typically regulated by our provincial drinking water agencies.
Eleven Canadian provinces/territories require drinking water system components to comply with the requirements of NSF/ANSI 61. The testing for NSF/ANSI 61 covers all products with drinking water contact from source to tap, and determines what contaminants may migrate or leach from your product into drinking water. It also confirms if they are below the maximum levels allowed to be considered safe.
Unified Alloys manages certified material to meet the NSF / ANSI 61 requirements. Having product that meets the regulatory requirements for Canada can often meet or fulfill the testing requirements for many other countries as well. The products that we have attained the NSF certification marks a distinction that provides our customers assurance that these product are safe for use in drinking water.
