Making Informed Decisions For Water Purifiers Answering FAQs

Published on : December 15, 2023

Water is one of the most essential elements for sustaining life, and access to clean drinking water is crucial for our health and well-being. Sadly, not all water sources provide water that is safe for consumption. This is where water purifiers come into play. But why do people buy water purifiers in the first place?

The water from our taps may look clean, but lurking beneath the surface are contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, chemicals, heavy metals, and sediments. Consuming water tainted with these impurities can lead to a myriad of health issues. To ensure the safety and purity of their drinking water, people turn to water purifiers.

How Do Water Purifiers Work?

Water purifiers employ various technologies to remove impurities and contaminants from water. The basic principle involves passing water through a filtration system to trap and eliminate unwanted substances. Let’s focus on two types of filtration processes – Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Ultraviolet (UV) purification.

Reverse Osmosis RO:

RO purifiers use a semi-permeable membrane to remove particles, ions, and larger molecules. It effectively eliminates bacteria, viruses, dissolved salts, and heavy metals, ensuring clean and safe drinking water.

Ultraviolet UV Purification:

UV purifiers use UV-C rays to sterilize and disinfect water and disinfect harmful microorganisms like bacteria and viruses without using chemicals.

Apart from the purification process, people consider many parameters when choosing water purifiers.

Which Water Purifier Suits You Best?

Assessing the quality of your water source is the first step in determining the right water purifier for your needs. You can do this by getting your water tested for contaminants, TDS (Total Dissolved Solids), and other parameters.

Under-the-Counter Purifiers:

These are installed beneath your kitchen sink, saving counter space and providing a continuous supply of purified water.

Over-the-Counter Purifiers:

These sit on your kitchen counter and are easy to install, making them suitable for renters or those who prefer a portable option.

There are mainly three types of water sources – Municipal water, mixed water, or tanker water, and borewell water. Whether you choose an RO or UV water purifier depends on the source of water as well.
