Water Purifier Insights: Decoding the Top 7 Water Purification Technologies

Natural water has several impurities such as physical, chemical, and microbiological contaminants that make it inappropriate for human consumption; hence, the purpose of water purifiers is to make natural water safe to drink. Water purifiers use multi-stage filtration techniques to provide clean and pure water.  This article will look at the top five water purification technologies employed by modern-day water purifiers.

  • Reverse Osmosis (RO)

Reverse Osmosis (RO) passes natural water through a semi-permeable membrane to remove pollutants, contaminants, and dissolved salts from it. They remove bacteria, viruses, and hazardous chemicals from water, providing you with safe and clean drinking water.

  • Ultraviolet (UV):

UV technology disinfects water by inactivating bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. It uses ultraviolet rays at 253.7 nm to kill viruses and bacteria in your water. This disinfection process is quick and secure and provides water that is as safe and pure as water boiled for over 20 minutes, without any alteration in taste.

  • Chemi-Block

Chemi-block effectively diminishes the presence of excessive chlorine and organic impurities within the water. Additionally, it gets rid of undesirable tastes and odors for an enhanced water quality experience.

  • Activate Carbon

Impurities and pollutants such as chlorine, sediment, and organic substances are absorbed by activated carbon. Moreover, an Activated Carbon Filter removes unwanted odours, colours and taste, as well as organic chemicals and chlorine from the water.

  • I-Filter

I-Filter eliminates turbidity and other minute suspended particles like dust, dirt, sand, and mud, providing you with crystal-clear water.

  • Taste Adjuster or Manually Total Dissolved Salts (MTDS) Controller

Manually Total Dissolved Salts (MTDS) is a regulator that helps users adjust the purified water’s TDS to desired levels. This results in sweet-tasting and odourless purified water.

  • Alkaline Cartridge

Alkaline cartridges instantly increase the pH level of water, making them alkaline. This cartridge also contains Activated Carbon which makes water safe, healthy, and tastier by removing contaminants like Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

Aquaguard has a variety of UV and RO water purifiers equipped with these five water purification techniques. Additionally, Aquaguard water purifiers have Active Copper and Zinc Booster Technology and Mineral Guard Technology that infuses your water with copper, zinc, magnesium, and calcium ions. Moreover, Aquaguard water purifiers come with Biotron Technology that aids faster absorption of these nutrients.

Before choosing a water water purifier, check your water quality with Aquaguard’s Free Virtual Water Testing Tool. It allows you to assess the quality of your water source and recommends a water purifier based on your source of water. Also, remember to check the required maintenance and the cost of consumables such as new filters and membranes. Finally, the best water purifier with price is one that addresses your water quality problems while remaining within your budget.
