Aquaguard Geneus and Aquaguard Geneus + are two of the popular models in the market today. The main difference between Geneus and Geneus + is an additional filter type. So for genius we have any two filtration process like RO+UV or UV+UF while for Geneus Plus we have additional third filtration process so RO + UV +UF.

Reverse osmosis is the key principle behind RO water purifiers. Water from higher TDS (total dissolved solids) level – that is, very hard water – is transferred to the lower TDS level through a filtering membrane. RO technology uses high pressure to push water through an extremely fine filter or membrane. The holes in this membrane are as small as .0001 microns. They remove dissolved salts along with pollutants and other physical contaminants including virus, and harmful metals, minerals, bacteria and microorganisms. Most of the RO purifiers also comprise of TDS controllers (to adjust the TDS level). The filter is kept clean by flushing the separated contaminants so they drain away.

In the quest to live healthier lives, many people have turned to water filters. Some water filters fit into pitchers to provide clean drinking water. Some filters attach to faucets and filter water as it flows out of the tap, and still others filter water as it enters a house so that all of the water in the home is filtered.


Eureka Forbes Aquaguard Geneus

A water purifier to suit your taste, literally

Aquaguard Geneus is a Universal water purifier which senses the quality of water and chooses the optimum purification technology RO + UV/ UF + UV to purify water. Its unique Tasteguard technology senses and adjusts to different sources of water automatically using multi-stage purification processes to give you the same tasting, pure and safe water always.

The RO technology separates salts and heavy metals from your water, by letting it pass through a thin film composite membrane making it free from physical and chemical impurities. It effectively reduces the hardness in your water to enhance its taste by making it sweeter.

Eureka Forbes Dr. Aquaguard Geneus Plus

Auto Mineral Modulator, Optimum purification technology RO+UV+UF to purify water....

Dr. Aquaguard Geneus+ is a Universal water purifier which is equipped with RO+ UV+ UF technology. This water purifier senses the quality of water and selects the optimum purification technology of RO + UV/UF + UV to purify water. It automatically identifies the source of water (municipal, borewell or tanker) and accordingly chooses the correct purification technology to give you water which is not only free from physical, chemical & microbiological contaminants but also has the right TDS balance. Its unique Auto Mineral Modulator allows you to set the taste of water as per your preference. The advanced Mineral Cartridge™ and Biotron Cartridge™ ensures that the essential minerals necessary for your family's health are retained giving you not just shudh, healthy water.

EMLE: Prevents scaling of dissolved salts on the surface of the membrane and hence enhance both membrane life and performance.
RO Membrane: Unique RO technology membrane removes excess TDS, blocks dissolved impurities and chemical contaminants, while retaining essential minerals in the drinking water. It also helps removing dissolved salts, hardness, pesticides and heavy metals like arsenic, lead and mercury.
Biotron Cartridge: It magnetizes water and de-culsters water molecules to make the water more "bio-available" by unlocking the nutrients in water, promising you the healthiest water.
EMLE: Prevents scaling of dissolved salts on the surface of the membrane and hence enhance both membrane life and performance.
HCCB (Hybrid Carbon Chemi Block) Cartridge: Removes excess chlorine, bad odour, colour, and organic impurities. Also eliminates new age contaminants like heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides.
HD Filter Cartridge: Removes fine particles like dust, dirt, mud and sand.

What you need to know before buying a water purifier

Water being the most vital element of our life, its purity should be accorded the highest priority by each of us. Water is our Life Line. Many diseases in the third world are either water-borne or due to contaminated water. Unlike the western countries where tap water is safe for drinking, the water that comes through taps in the developing world...
