Pharmaceutical contamination in our drinking water has become more and more prevalent fortunately, there is one manufacturer out there that can make NSF certified claims that they remove/reduce pharmaceuticals from drinking water (see NSF 401 Specifications). 

However, the Water Quality Association has come out with a statement that POU (Point of Use) activated carbon water filtration treatment offers the "best protection" for drinking water and that having activated carbon (the primary component in our counter top and under sink water filters) has "shown promise in removing many of these contaminants." NSF has developed standards for testing under Standard 401 and our offerings from Carbon Block Technology meets all the major Drinking Water Standards for NSF/ANSI Standards 42,53 and 401, since the EPA has not developed allowable limits (MCLs) for any pharmaceutical drugs, we feel it's best to remove as many and as effectively as possible.

The carbon block units with the most extensive certifications are manufactured by Carbon Block Technology right here in the US. The models available are the CB Tech CBVOCSB, CBASSB.
