Water purifiers are no longer a luxury or a meaningless indulgence. In fact, they are an absolute necessity. Since there is growing concern regarding water pollution, you can never be quite sure about the quality of water that you and your loved ones are consuming on a regular basis. Even though water treatment plants follow a rigorous filtration process to ensure clean tap water, the truth is, due to poor infrastructure of such plants, tap water is no longer a reliable option and it’s not always possible to boil water for drinking purpose. If humans are responsible for polluting the water bodies, they should also be credited for coming up with innovative ways for water purification. At Propello, we believe that growing popularity of water purifiers indicates our heightened sense of awareness regarding our health and well-being.
Basics of Water Purifiers
An astounding variety of water filters are available in the market, all of which serve the basic purpose of removing contaminants such as bacteria, virus, particulate matter and chemicals from water. Inside a purifier, water undergoes two types of filtration – physical (removes large particles) and chemical (removes smaller impurities). The difference in filtration technique has lead to the emergence of a variety of purifiers.
How to make the right choice: Hardness and TDS Factor
With choices abound, it’s really difficult to zero in on one water purifier that would best suit our requirements. Few factors should be kept in mind while making the decision:
TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids. It represents the concentration of dissolved substances in water. Substances such as potassium, sodium, chloride and toxic ions increase TDS concentration. For water to be fit for consumption, TDS should be less than 500mg. If your tap water is hard (TDS level>600mg and hardness reading of 35ppm), opt for a purifier that employs RO+UV technology+TDS controller. However, if your tap water isn’t that hard, RO based water purifier would suffice. In any case, water hardness is reduced by 60% after RO filtration.
