Filtration Update

Hi Kickstarters (and Happy March)!

Since 2012, we have been determined to test the Soma water filter to the best standards, but also in a way that would demonstrate the most accurate every-day use capabilities. We are so excited to announce that Soma has passed the Gold Standard of water filtration! 

The Water Quality Association (WQA) tested Soma to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 requirements for materials safety, and chlorine, taste and odor reduction. We then reached out to PACE Analytical to test more specific contaminants both at EPA contaminant regulation levels and at NSF Standard 53 levels. The Soma water filter has been third-party verified to reduce lead, selenium and arsenic levels!

We hope to continue to test more contaminants moving forward, but this is a great start!

Thank-you so much for being patient with us through these early days. We are so happy to finally share the great news with you!

Raise your glass,

The Soma Team

      Are you planning to make the PACE test results public? I believe we backers deserve to know the specific details of the test results.
