Multipure Aquaperform Drinking Water System with Countertop Connection Kit (Formerly named MP880SC)
Multipure's Aquaperform countertop drinking water system (Formerly named MP880SC) performs the same functions as the Aquaversa 750SC, but adds reduction of Arsenic V to its filtering capabilities. How do you know if Arsenic V is present in your water? Ask the company you pay your water bill to for their annual water quality report, or just ask me...I'll look it up for you! The Multipure Aquaversa model MP880SC is a quick and easy solution for filtering water right from your kitchen faucet. The supplied adapters screw into most kitchen faucet ends, but will not work with faucets that double as a pull-out sprayer. Its compact size fits nicely on your counter top and sits securely in an acrylic base. No tools are required for installation. Many people buy this unit when they don't want to drill a hole in their counter or sink for a below sink model, or cannot do so because they are renting. The Multipure Aquaversa model MP880SC can later be converted to a below sink model by purchasing the faucet and Adapta Valve installation kit, so it you are renting now or plan to remodel your home later, this unit offers the versatility you need. Switching from unfiltered to filtered water at your sink is as easy as pushing a button at the end of the supplied diverter.

Facts About Arsenic (In compliance with NSF/ANSI Standard)
Arsenic (abbreviated As) is a naturally occurring contaminant found in many ground waters.Arsenic in water has no color, taste or odor. It must be measured by a lab test. Public water utilities must have their water tested for arsenic. You can get the results from your water utility. If you have your own well, you can have the water tested. The local health department or the state environmental health agency can provide a list of certified labs. The cost is typically $15 to $30. Information about arsenic in water can be found on the Internet at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency website: www.epa.gov/safewater/arsenic.html.
There are two forms of arsenic: pentavalent arsenic (also called As(V), As(+5), and arsenate) and trivalent arsenic (also called As(III), As(+3), and arsenite). In well water, arsenic may be pentavalent, trivalent, or a combination of both. Special sampling procedures are needed for a lab to determine what type and how much of each type of arsenic is in the water. Check with the labs in your area to see if they can provide this type of service.
Specially formulated Carbon Block systems are very effective at removing pentavalent arsenic. A free chlorine residual will rapidly convert trivalent arsenic to pentavalent arsenic. Other water treatment chemicals such as ozone and potassium permanganate will also change trivalent arsenic to pentavalent arsenic. A combined chlorine residual (also called chloramine) maynot convert all the trivalent arsenic. If you get your water from a public water utility, contact the utility to find out if free chlorine or combined chlorine is used in the water system.
The Multipure MP880 Models are designed to remove only pentavalent arsenic. It will not convert trivalent arsenic to pentavalent arsenic. The system may remove some trivalent arsenic, however, it has not been evaluated for its ability to remove trivalent arsenic. The system was tested in a laboratory to remove pentavalent arsenic. Under lab conditions, as defined in ANSI/NSF Standard 53, the system reduced 0.050 mg/L (ppm) pentavalent arsenic to 0.010 mg/L (ppm) (the U.S. EPA standard for drinking water) or less. The performance of the system may be different at your installation. Have the treated water tested for arsenic to check if the system is working properly.
The Carbon Block filter component of the Multipure MP880 system must be replaced as indicated in the Owner’s Manual to ensure the system will continue to remove arsenic and other contaminants. The component identification and locations where you can purchase the component are listed in the installation/operation manual.
Why filter your own water?
There are fewer regulations for bottled water than there are for tap water. Bottled water companies are not required to disclose the source of their water, how it is treated, or what contaminants it contains. When you filter your own water, you can choose the filter that fits your needs, based on the contaminants in your tap water. We can look up your annual water quality report to find this out for you, just ask! Once you know what is in your water, choosing the right filter is easy. The one that reduces those contaminants to the greatest degree is the best filter for the job. Multipure has been a leader in drinking water systems since 1970. Their carbon block technology is superior to granular carbon found in many other filters, because the water is forced through the carbon, instead of just trickling around it. Additionally, Multipure uses a proprietary blend of different carbons with different adsorption properties in order to remove a wider variety of contaminants. Multipure Drinking Water Systems are certified by NSF International, a third party testing facility. You can compare Multipure with other brands at the NSF website and can trust the results. Please read below to see which contaminants the Multipure Aquaversa MP880SB is certified to reduce.
Please note: The results show how much the Multipure Aqauaversa model MP880SB is reducing at the 600 gallon mark, so your new drinking water system will be performing to these specifications the entire time you use it, provided that you are replacing it at or before 600 gallons of use.
Drinking Water Treatment Units - Aesthetic Effects
This standard covers how the water looks, tastes, and smells.
Taste and Odor Reduction
Nominal Particulate Reduction, Class I
Drinking Water Treatment Units - Health Effects
This standard covers more of the contaminants that you might not see, taste or smell. It's shocking to see what gets into our water supply, but luckily, we can reduce those harmful contaminants, which include:
Arsenic (Pentavalent)<=50 ppb Reduction*
VOC Reduction **
** The category of VOC (Volatile Organic Chemical) includes a number of chemicals that are both man-made and naturally occurring. Water from wells and utilities may contain some of these contaminants. Some VOCs are pesticides, herbicides, or insecticides that seep into the ground water after application. Other VOCs enter the water supply through industrial or other waste disposal. This category also includes total trihalomethanes, which are a by-product of chlorination.
A VOC reduction claim by the manufacturer means the system reduces the concentration of all of the following contaminants:
ethylene dibromide (EDB)
tetrachloroethylene carbon tetrachloride
tribromoacetic acid 2,4-D
1,2,4-trichlorobenzene dibromochloropropane (DBCP)
trihalomethanes (TTHM) 1,1-dichloroethylene
