Water is life!
Water is a fundamental human need. Due to increasing population, industrial development and environmental degradation, now water is contaminated with dirt, minerals, chemicals and other impurities that make it smell and taste horrible. Few of these impurities can risk your health, particularly when they incorporate viruses and bacteria that can cause serious disease. Purifying water can remove these impurities and make it safe to consume, while also improving its taste.
What exactly is water purifier?
Water purifier is a device that help in removing undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids, chemical and odour from contaminated drinking water, coming from sources like river, ground water and municipality supplies. There are multiple number of water purifiers available in India. These are generally categorized based on their purification techniques used to purify water.
What to look for while making a decision?
To select right water purifier for home or office one of the most crucial element to consider is to know your water type and water contamination level. Water is differentiated as hard water and soft water based on the level of dissolved solids in water. Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) refers to the degree of hardness and is measured in units of Parts per Million (PPM) or Milligrams per Litre (mg/L). If the TDS value range between 150-300 ppm then the water is observed to be soft water, but if the value is higher than 500 ppm, then the water is considered to be hard or contaminated water. Some sources of hard water are water drown from bore wells or underground water. Hard water contains calcium, magnesium, fluoride, arsenic and other heavy metals. Whereas water sourced from rivers, lakes, rain harvesting, or supplied by municipality is termed as soft water.
Water Purifier Types – RO, UV, UF, Gravity Based and Portable
Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Purifier- If the water supply at your home is hard, then you should opt for RO water purifier for home. RO filters offer multi-stage purification of water by combining active carbon and particle filtration. In this process, the water is passed through a membrane that has very tiny sized pores and this clear out minerals and micro-organisms in the water. The impurities collected are thrown out through an outlet pipe. Reverse Osmosis purifiers are mostly recommended for purifying water with high level of TDS.
Ultraviolet (UV) Water Purifier- UV purifier usages ultraviolet rays to purify water. It functions by giving high-intensity UV rays on water which kill or deactivate microorganisms, a pathogen which causes water-borne diseases. Remember, this water purifier does not help to make soft water from hard water, it just kills microorganisms and pathogens.
Ultrafiltration (UF) Water Purifier- UF purifier uses hollow fiber membrane with pores of appx. 0.01 microns. When water goes through these membranes, suspended solids, other impurities are retained in fiber. UF can only evacuate undissolved solids and larger impurities. UF is not recommended for water which has a high level of TDS (hard water). UF is good when it is used with other water purification technologies. Few RO purifier models comes along with UF filters. These purifiers operated without electricity as well.
Gravity Based Water Purifier- As the name suggest, this water purifier purifies water through gravitational pull. This category of water purifier has two compartments which are kept one above another. The upper portion stores unfiltered water and the lower portion stores purified water. These filters usually consist of sediment and activated carbon filters which remove large and undissolved impurities along with few chemical and microorganisms. This water purifier works without electricity. This is usually recommended for soft water type.
Portable Water Purifier- Portable water filter refers to filter water bottle and water tap filters. These usually have activated carbon filters to purify water. These are only appropriate for the areas where the TDS level is low and water is not contaminated.
The above are the broad classification of the water purifier, but there are filters available in Indian market which offers a combination of two or three filtration technology. You will see RO water purifier with UV and UF technology. Similarly, UV water purifier with UF filtration technology and so on. You will also find water purifier with features like copper technology, added mineral, hot and cold water purifier and so on.
