RO, UV & UF has all the necessary features which makes water pure for drinking while blocking all kind of dissolved impurities. The heart of any water purifier is its filter. It blocks all the impurities like heavy metals, pesticides and harmful salts and purifies the water. The UV filter is the one that uses UV radiations to kill germs, bacteria, and viruses. In these purifiers, water passes through UV Radiations which kills germs and make water free from viruses causing diseases like cholera, dysentery, and typhoid. The third Filter is UF filter which works without electricity. The greatest advantage of UF filter is that it is best for removing all kind of germs and impurities from the cloud and muddy water.

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.

The TDS controller maintains essential natural minerals, thereby providing 100% pure, safe & tasty drinking water, which is ideal for consumption.

High power 11 watt UV lamp for complete deactivation of harmful micro-organisms

Kent ACE uses high-powered 11W UV lamp instead of the Industry standard 8W UV lamp, to provide complete de-activation of harmful micro-organisms. High-wattage ensures better safety against harmful micro-organisms like bacteria and viruses.

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.

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...
