Zeta Rod® Systems Receive IAPMO Certification

Uniform Plumbing Code NSF61 Logo

February 8, 2006

Tucson, Arizona — Zeta Corporation is pleased to announce that its patent­ed Zeta Rod® Systems have received IAPMO Research &Testing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and will now bear the UPCNSF/ ANSI 61 mark, indi­cat­ing that they con­form to the stan­dards for Drinking Water Systems Components – Health Effects, as well as to the plumb­ing and elec­tri­cal require­ments set forth in the Uniform Plumbing CodeTM Interim Guide Criteria 91–2005a. Although the prod­ucts had pre­vi­ous­ly been ETL list­ed to NSF-61, the asso­ci­a­tion with IAPMO broad­ens the scope of the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to include addi­tion­al plumb­ing and elec­tri­cal safe­ty stan­dards devel­oped specif­i­cal­ly for the patent­ed Zeta tech­nol­o­gy.

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), pro­motes safe and effi­cient plumb­ing and mechan­i­cal prac­tices and is the orga­ni­za­tion that devel­ops and main­tains the Uniform Plumbing Code. NSF, the National Sanitation Foundation, and ANSI, the American National Standards Institute, devel­op the stan­dards for drink­ing water sys­tem addi­tives and com­po­nents. NSF/ANSI Standard 61 is the American National Standard that ensures pipes, tubes, stor­age tanks and oth­er prod­ucts that come in con­tact with drink­ing water do not con­tribute lev­els of con­t­a­m­i­nants that could cause seri­ous health prob­lems. Forty-five U.S. states and two Canadian provinces require drink­ing water sys­tem com­po­nents to com­ply with NSF/ANSI Standard 61 require­ments.

The IAPMO cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is con­cur­rent with the company’s launch of two new Zeta Rod sys­tems designed specif­i­cal­ly for res­i­den­tial and oth­er small appli­ca­tions. The con­sumer sys­tems are small­er in scale, yet oper­ate on the same prin­ci­pals as the cus­tom engi­neered indus­tri­al water treat­ment sys­tems for which Zeta is well known.

For res­i­den­tial water treat­ment appli­ca­tions, the Zeta Rod offers a point-of- entry elec­tron­ic deposit and cor­ro­sion con­trol sys­tem that replaces the tra­di­tion­al salt-based water soft­en­er and deliv­ers the added ben­e­fits of water and ener­gy con­ser­va­tion in a com­pact, main­te­nance-free design. Water con­di­tioned with a Zeta Rod sys­tem has no addi­tives to adverse­ly affect drink­ing water qual­i­ty and has been shown to enhance plant health and growth.

Zeta Rod sys­tems work by cre­at­ing a capac­i­tor with­in the pip­ing that pre­vents depo­si­tion of hard water and min­er­al scale. Additionally, the sys­tem per­forms to elim­i­nate bac­te­ria-har­bor­ing bio-films that adhere to pipe and ves­sel walls, there­by improv­ing water taste, reduc­ing pip­ing and fix­ture cor­ro­sion, and enhanc­ing over­all water qual­i­ty sat­is­fac­tion.
