conditions, actual performance of the system may vary based on local water conditions. Some or all of the contaminants reduced by this unit may not be in your water
supply. See Use and Care Manual for further instructions on filter cartridge replacement, system installation, operating procedures, and warranty. The
maintenance instructions must be followed for the product to perform as indicated below.

EPA MCL means Environmental Protection Agency Maximum Contaminant Level as required under the Safe Drinking Water Act.
2
mg/L means Milligrams Per Liter, which is equivalent to parts per million (PPM).
3
NSF minimum percent reduction requirement. Acceptance level for this substance is based on percent reduction rather than maximum effluent concentration.
4
#/mL means particles per milliliter.
5
Microspheres was used as a surrogate
6
The EPA has not determined an MCL for this chemical.
7
Chloroform was used as a surrogate for the reduction of chemicals specified in the Organic Chemicals Reduced by Chloroform Surrogate Testing table.

Influent challenge levels are average influent concentrations determined in surrogate qualification testing.
2
µg/L means Micrograms Per Liter.
3
Maximum product water level was not observed but was set at the detection limit of the analysis.
4
Maximum product level is set at a value determined in surrogate qualification testing.
5
Chemical reduction percent and maximum product water level calculated at chloroform 95% breakthrough point as determined in surrogate qualification testing.
6
The surrogate test results for heptachlor Epoxide demonstrated a 98% reduction. These data were used to calculate an upper occurrence concentration, which would produce a maximum product water
level at the MCL.
Performance Data Sheet
Model WHED20 Drinking Water Filter
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Read this Performance Data Sheet and compare the capabilities of this unit with your actual water treatment
needs. It is recommended that, before purchasing a water treatment unit, you have your water supply tested to determine your actual water
treatment needs. This filter system is designed to be used for the reduction of the performance claims listed below. Do not use where
is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality, without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Systems certified for cyst
reduction may be used on disinfected water that may contain filterable cysts. While testing was performed under standard laboratory
