Westinghouse Water Refiners Are Certified by IAPMO
Westinghouse water refiners are now certified by IAPMO Research and Testing, Inc to NSF/ANSI 44, 42, and 372 in compliance with the International Plumbing Code (IPC®). Each system will proudly bear the UPC seal shown above.
Westinghouse water treatment chose to partner with the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) R&T because of their more than 85 years experience certifying products. The UPC® shield is recognized throughout the industry as the premier mark of conformity for plumbing products in North America.
The UPC® mark of conformity demonstrates compliance with applicable codes and NSF/ANSI 44, 42, and 372 standards. It signifies accredited third-party recognition, meaning it has been certified by an organization outside of the manufacturer’s industry. And the UPC® mark is widely recognized and trusted by the inspectors who approve your system’s installation. The UPC® mark assures buyers that they are purchasing a product that has been manufactured, tested, and inspected to industry standards, giving them peace of mind that they have made the right decision.
Our systems are listed to NSF/ANSI 44 and NSF/ANSI 42 and NSF/ANSI 372 (No Lead), UPC®, and IPC®.
