About Pureit

The biggest challenge faced by Pureit is to provide safe drinking water at an affordable price. Some Pureit purifiers provide safe drinking water at a running cost of just Re1 for 4 liters without the use of electricity or continuous water supply.

The advanced in-house water purification system used in Pureit meets the criteria set by regulatory agencies like EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), USA to provide water that is safe from microbes which cause the water borne diseases.

Pureit Ultima RO + UV Introduction

The Pureit Ultima a sleek, compact water purifier that provides safe drinking water, which complies with US EPA norms for safe drinking water. The water purifier has dimensions of H 486 x W 360 x D 311 mm and weighs 9.5 kg and is available only in black. It can be wall mounted which enhances the interiors of the kitchen where it is usually installed. Pureit Ultima has a storage capacity of 10 liters which is sufficient for a big family or small office as well. The water flow rate is approximately 9-12 liters per hour that ensures that everybody gets safe drinking water anytime and every time. This water purifier works on a wide range of input voltage that range from 150-300 V AC, at 50- 60 Hz. The Ultima uses 60 W of power which is a bit higher than most other water purifiers.

This water purifier uses 6 stages of purification to ensure the safest drinking water. The six stages include pre-filtration for sediment removal, pre-RO carbon filter, post carbon sediment filter, RO membrane, UV and post Reverse Osmosis carbon filter.

Alert Interface

A smart interface gives a clear indication of the input and output of the quality of water. The purity indicator senses the water quality 5000 times every second. The Digital Advanced Alert System displays two concentric circles on the panel, which show the consumption of the GermKill kit. You are alerted 15 days before the kit is going to die or its effectiveness is going to end .Guided Alert system is an intelligent system installed in Ultima that alerts you if there is some electrical fault that is identified.

Neon Flash Belt illuminates every time you switch on the purifier or use the button to dispense water. RO Protection lock locks the water purifier when the GermKill kit expires. Either you get only pure and safe water or no water at all. TDS Modulator adds the desired minerals after purification which improves the taste of the water. TDS Removal is up to 2000 ppm, which makes hard water soft. This ensures that Ultima can be used in areas where the water is very hard.

Price

The price of Ultima is mostly on par with a water purifier that uses the RO + UV technology for water purification. The cost of maintenance of the Pureit Ultima is very low. The GermKill kit purifies water at a rate of 12 paisa per glass and gives you 40000 glasses of pure and safe drinking water.
