YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATIONS FOR EACH OF THE MULTIPURE FILTERS BELOW SO YOU CAN SEE EXACTLY WHICH CONTAMINANTS EACH FILTER IS CERTIFIED BY THE NSF TO REDUCE:

Multipure Aquadome, Aquaversa and Aquaperform Data Sheet

(When reading the above Performance Data sheet, be aware that each section names either all 3 or 2 of the 3 filters. Not all Multipure filters reduce all the same contaminants.)

The Aquadome and Aquaversa and Aqualuxe are all certified by the NSF under Standard 401 which reduces pharmaceuticals etc. (See sheet under heading Standard 401)

The Aquaperform is not Certified under Standard 401 but it reduces Arsenic V which the Aquadome and Aquaversa do not.

The Watts Reverse Osmosis unit reduces all the same things as the Aquaversa plus arsenic and fluoride and other things that the others do not reduce. However it also takes out the good minerals from the water whereas the Multipure filters leave the good minerals in your drinking water.

The Aqualuxe reduces viruses and bacteria which none of the other Multipure water filters reduce.
Here is the link for the Multipure Aqualuxe Performance Data Sheet

By looking at the chart above and the performance data sheets, above and seeing the water filter comparisons, you can then choose your best water filter.
