HiFlow Water Filters represents qualityPlain and simple – HiFlow Water Filters represents quality.

We’ve been in the water filtration business since 1999… that’s a long history of supplying thousands of Aussie homes with first-rate water filters!

We like to make an impact on the everyday Aussie by providing the best water filter product on the market. Our systems use the finest materials and top-notch cutting edge technology. And – we’re fully certified.

Why are certifications important?

Certification ensures quality and safety

To put it simply, certification ensures quality and safety. It proves that the product is going to do what it claims. If a product is certified, you know it’s a winner. Legally. In all aspects, really!

WFA systems have been independently tested at both an international and national level and have been certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and WaterMark. That means they’ve ticked all the boxes for plumbing safety, performance and legal requirements.

Unfortunately it’s not illegal to sell water filters that are not certified. There are quite a few water filter products being sold around Australia that don’t have the NSF and/or WaterMark certifications. This can put both plumbers and consumers at risk.

National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)

National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)

The NSF is an independent, internationally recognised and non-profit testing authority. NSF tests and certifies that the claims made by the manufacturer are true. There are two important NSF certifications for water filter systems:

  • Standard 42 – this tests the water filter system for impurities like chlorine, taste and smell and makes sure they’re safe and minimal.
  • Standard 53 – this tests the water filter system for contaminants such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia and makes sure they’re kept at bay.

WaterMark

WaterMark

WaterMark is a national certification scheme that represents the Australian standards tick of approval. They independently test and check the performance of the product and then certify that the products meet Australian safety plumbing standards.

A WaterMark certification means that the water filter has passed a number of strict tests and requirements. They test things like plumbing safety, water pressure, taste and toxins. Basically they make sure that the water filter product is safe and approved for sale, installation and use.

This certification is mandatory to comply with Australian plumbing regulations when installing a water filtration system. In fact, it is illegal to install a water filter that doesn’t have the WaterMark approval. If the product isn’t approved by WaterMark and any problems occur down the track, there can be serious insurance implications.
