What is that one thing you never forget to keep in your bag before you leave for office? It is a bottle of water. There are many reasons for consuming that water, the primary reason being the peace of mind that comes along with that water bottle. You feel nice and peaceful since you know that you are consuming safe & pure drinking water as it is from your home. However, many of us in India are not aware of the health implications of directly consuming the tap water.
Due to water pollution and increased urbanization, tap water is considered unsafe for direct consumption. The water might have some percentage of bacteria, virus, or even have harmful chemicals. In many cases, this is same water that your kids (and other loved ones) would also consume due to which they might get affected by water-borne diseases like cholera, typhoid, fever, malaria, etc. No one in this world can survive without water hence, you should take all measures to ensure that the water that you are having is ‘safe for consumption’.
With the advent of water purifier and water filter, you can breathe a sigh of relief as purifiers are equipped with advanced technologies to filter the water. Water Purifier is broadly classified into RO Water Purifier and UV Water Purifier. You can also choose RO Water Filter in case you are looking for a more economical option. Let’s have a detailed look at RO and UV Water Purifiers.
RO Water Purifier
RO Water Purifier uses the Reverse Osmosis (RO) purification technology. It is one of the most popular and advanced filtrations techniques available and has been widely used by companies like LivPure who are pioneers in water purification products. The major advantages of RO Technology are a. RO filtration is completely automated b. Water purified using RO tastes nice c. RO purifiers and filters are competitively priced. d. Low maintenance costs.
In the RO process, all the inorganic solids are filtered from the input water. Salts is one example of organic solid. Regarding the other impurities, they are filtered out using the pressure that is applied by the household tap to the semi-permeable membrane in the purifier.
All the impurities in the water are removed when the water passes through the carbon filters and the output is ‘safe and pure’ drinking water. Pre-filer, RO membrane, Post-filer, and Automatic shut-off valve are the primary components of an RO System. LivPure has a number of options in the RO Water Purifier category – Livpure Vibe RO + UF + Mineraliser Water Purifier, Livpure Touch Vibe RO + UV + UF + Taste Enhancer Water Purifier, etc. Both these purifiers have a six-stage purification system and are capable of removing all the hazardous impurities in the water.
UV Water Purifier
As the name suggests, UV Water Purifier uses Ultraviolet (UV) rays in order to kill bacteria and other microorganisms that might be present in the water. They achieve the job without modifying the water’s taste or odor. Though you might not be aware of the various kinds of bacteria & viruses present in your home water, in case if it contains cryptosporidium, giardia, and bacteria; it is time you have a UV Water Purifier installed in your home.
UV Water Purifiers are highly popular as they require low maintenance and kill almost 99.99% of the impurities present in the water. Some of the popular UV Water Purifiers are Livpure Touch UV 60-Litre Water Purifier and Livpure Glitz UV & UF Water Purifier. UF stands for Ultra-Filtration and when used along with UV, it gives the best purification results.
