Product Features

The Dr. Aquaguard Geneus + is a sleek looking expertly designed water purifier with dimensions of 367 x 314 x 567 that allows wall mounting as well as table top installation. It has a storage tank that can store upto 7 litres of water. An LED display indicates water levels in the tank, maintenance requirement warnings and faults. Power consumption at 45 watts is fairly low when compared to other household appliances.

Dr. Aquaguard Geneus + supports Reverse Osmosis (RO), Ultra Violet (UV) radiation and Ultra Filtration (UF) water purification techniques. It comes embedded with “G-Tech” technology that can vary the filtration or purification technique used based on the source and quality of water.  The water purifier can thus be used to purify water supplied by your local municipality, wells, tankers and rivers.

The purification process itself is fairly complex as well as quite comprehensive. The purifier ensures removal of contaminants such as dust, sand, mud, excess dissolved salts, dirt, excess chlorine, colors, heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides. Additionally it neutralizes disease causing bacteria and microbes using U.V filtration.  The auto mineral modulator is a nifty personalization feature that allows you to calibrate the minerals in the water exactly to your tastes.
