COMPARE WATER FILTERS WITH FACTS AND CHARTS

Please Use My Water Filter Comparison Below
To Choose The Best Water Filter For Your Individual Needs

It is difficult to compare water filters because most of the manufacturers do not clearly have the information on their web site, and few are brave and honest enough to compare theirs to Multipure's. Many are not even certified by the NSF like Multipure's are. (See our page about NSF Certification to understand why this is so important when buying a water filter.)

The first thing to learn as you compare water filters is to beware of companies who make claims which are not backed up by NSF Certification. Anyone can make a claim about anything and many water filter sellers make claims that are not backed up by the NSF.

There are hundreds of companies and to compare the water filters made by all the companies would take a very big web site! However there are really only a handful of well respected and popular filters so that makes our job easier!

For this reason I am going to concentrate on comparing water filters only among 3 of the best known and most popular manufacturers: Multipure, Aquasana and Brita. Seeing them compared side by side in the following comparison chart will help you determine which is the best water filter for yourself:

FULL DISCLOSURE: The above water filter comparison chart uses Aquasana figures which are based on the Information Page from the Aquasana web site; and all Brita figures are based on the information page at the Brita web site; and the MP info is based on the official Multipure NSF Certification document. (Further note that the models listed on the NSF data sheet are: MP750SB, MP1200EL, MP750SC, MP750SI, MPAD, MPCT and these names have changed but they are the exact same filter systems. The 750 and 1200 are now the Aquaversa, the MPAD is the Aquadome. All the carbon block replacement filters which the NSF Certification is based on are exactly the same as they were under the old names.

* Note that the price used to compare water filters above is the Suggested Retail Price for Multipure and now all Multipure water filter systems are sold only at full retail price. The discount coupon code program has ended as of June 30, 2013.

This water filter comparison chart shows clearly that Multipure is the best water filter! (Note also that Consumer Reports February 2012 magazine also names the MP750 or "Aquaversa" as it is now known, a BEST BUY!*)

*Please note however that the Consumer Reports page above has 2 details wrong and so the truth is that the Multi-pure is even better than they thought! It says the yearly filter cost is $120 and that is incorrect. The cost of filters for the Aquaversa/750 model is only $69.95 and most people only need to change it once per year! Also CR lists the retail price as $400 - that is for the countertop model - the under the sink models are slightly higher.

Compare Water Filters Based on California Certification:

To further compare Multipure to Aquasana based on the State of California certifications:

Here's Aquasana's State of California Dept. of Health Services Certificate for their counter-top water filter: (The contaminants that are filtered are highlighted in yellow.)

Comparing Water Filters: Aquasana Vs. Multipure

As you can see, this Aquasana counter-top model is certified by the State of CA (but NOT NSF) to filter:
Cysts, Lead, MTBE, and VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds is a whole group of contaminants, and is the same for both units under CA's certification system, so we have not included the list here, for either filter. You can find it in the full .pdf document, linked at the bottom of this page).

Now here is Multipure's State of California Dept. of Health Services Certificate for their MPCT, and 750 Models (now called the Aquaversa - but the exact same filters), and others (the certificate is the same for the MPAD or Aquadome):

Compare Water Filters: Multipure And Aquasana

As you can see, when we compare these 2 water filter systems, Multipure's water filters reduce more contaminants than the Aquasana. To be exact, the Multipure systems are California-Certified (AND NSF-Certified) to reduce the following six contaminants which the Aquasana does not:

(The following information about these contaminants is taken from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's web page.)

Turbidity - "Higher turbidity levels are often associated with higher levels of disease-causing microorganisms such as viruses, parasites and some bacteria. These organisms can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches."
Asbestos - "Increased risk of developing benign intestinal polyps"
Mercury - "Kidney damage"
Chlordane - "Liver or nervous system problems; increased risk of cancer"
PCB's - "Skin changes; thymus gland problems; immune deficiencies; reproductive or nervous system difficulties; increased risk of cancer"
Toxaphene - "Kidney, liver, or thyroid problems; increased risk of cancer"

Multi-pure's carbon systems filter all six of the above contaminants in addition to ALL the ones that Aquasana filters.

So when we carefully compare water filters sold my MP and Aquasana here are our conclusions based on the facts:
(I am using the abbreviation "MP" for Multipure)

1) MP's filters are certified by the NSF and Aquasana's are not.
2) MP's filters cost less to operate. While the original cost of the Multi-pure is a little higher, over several years it averages out to be lower than the cost of an Aquasana filter, since the Aquasana carbon filter has to be changed twice per year vs. the Multipure's filter only having to be changed about once per year.*
4) MP's filters are also certified by the states of California, Iowa, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, and Colorado (all the states that regulate drinking water systems) and Aquasana's are not. This gives Multipure more credibility.
5) MP gives you a 90 day Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee - that means you can return it for any reason within 90 days if you are not satisfied , for a full refund of the purchase price. This is compared to Aquasana's 60 day guarantee.
6) MP gives you a LIFETIME WARRANTY on the housing so you will never have to buy a new housing if you maintain it as instructed (change the filter and clean the housing once per year).

Don't settle for less! Doesn't your family deserve the very best?




*This calculation is based on paying average prices on Multipure's cheapest counter-top system, and $59.99 every six months for an Aquasana replacement filter vs. paying $69.95 every 12 months for a Multi-pure replacement filter. At the end of 2 years you will have substantially less money invested into the Multipure than the Aquasana. From that point forward the Multipure will cost about $69/year to operate whereas the Aquasana will cost about $96-120/year to operate. Brita will cost more. This is why when we compare water filters we have to take the cost of replacement cartridges into account!

Note also that the Multipure reduces 3 important contaminants that the Aquasana does not, and that the Aquasana is not as well reviewed nor been in business as long as Multipure, Multipure gives a LIFETIME warranty whereas Aquasana does not!
