This system has been tested according to NSF/ANSI 42 for reduction of the substances listed. The concentration of each of the indicated substances in water entering the systems was reduced to a concentration less than or equal to the permissible limit for water leaving the system, as specified in NSF/ANSI 42.
Testing was performed under standard laboratory conditions at a flow rate of 0.20 gallons/minute. The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by this water treatment device are not necessarily in all users' water Filter performance may vary based on local water conditions.
Please refer elsewhere in this user's guide for the proper conditioning and use and care requirements. Maintenance according to the manufacturer's instructions is essential for proper filter performance. Replace the Brita Bottle® filter every 40 gallons/151 liters.
