AMWAY WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM IS ANSWER FOR EPA LIST OF CITIES FACING LEAD RISK

 ADA, Mich., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The right home water treatment system can be the answer for the 30 million residents of 819 communities with water systems the Environmental Protection Agency has listed as containing excessive levels of lead.
 Along with its findings released Wednesday (May 12), the EPA also advised those concerned about the possibility of lead in their drinking water to consider precautions that include installation of a filter on their tap to remove lead. Tests by the National Sanitation Foundation International (NSF), an independent testing and certification agency, have confirmed that the Amway Water Treatment System removes lead to below the legally permissible lead level of 15 parts per billion.
 The NSF also has listed the Amway Water Treatment System for reduction of cysts from drinking water and removal of other harmful contaminants that can be found in some water, including asbestos, Volatile Organic Compounds, and over 30 pesticides and pesticide by-products. Additionally, the system has been documented to remove radon and more than 100 EPA priority pollutants.
 The NSF is a private, nonprofit organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute as a "third-party certifier," a type of certification in which the manufacturer's claims are validated by a competent body other than the manufacturer or the buyer. An NSF listing is independent verification of product claims and effectiveness.
 The Amway Water Treatment System was the first carbon-based system on the market to be listed by the NSF for reduction of lead in drinking water. The Water Treatment System uses the latest carbon-block filtration technology incorporating a patented four-stage system. The System can be easily connected to an existing faucet and placed on a countertop or under a sink.
 Amway offers a money-back guarantee that is among the best in the business. If after a reasonable time the customer is not satisfied, Amway will replace the system, refund the purchase price, or give credit toward the purchase of other Amway products.
 The Amway Water Treatment System has a suggested retail price of $227.35(A) and is sold only by independent Amway distributors. The nearest distributor can be located by looking under Amway Products in the white pages of the phone book or by calling 1-800-544-7167.
 (A) Distributors are not obligated to charge the suggested retail price and are entitled to determine independently the price they charge their own customers.
