A) No, Pureit is not a filter.
B) Pureit is a purifier which means that not only does it filter the water (removing dirt, suspended solids, rust, rust, lead and Chlorine), but it also disinfects the water (killing all harmful bacteria, virus and parasites) to ensure that output water is completely free of disease-causing micro-organisms. Regular filters do not have a disinfecting mechanism and therefore, cannot ensure complete safety of water from harmful bacteria, virus and parasites.
Pureit has been tested and certified by the Philippine Department of Health (DOH) / Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) to comply with the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water (PNSDW).
Pureit’s performance is recognized by other leading global institutions like:
- London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine – University of London (UK)
- National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases (India)
- Mexican Institute of Water Technology – IMTA(Mexico)
- PT TUV NORD Indonesia Laboratory Division (Indonesia)
Yes, the output water from Pureit is safe for babies.
PureitExcella makes the input water go through a multi-stage purification process:
First, the water passes through the sediment filter which removes visible dirt Second, the water passes through the Germ-kill Processor which removes bacteria and virus from water. Third, the water passes through the Microfiber Mesh which removes all suspended solids and metallic impurities from water Fourth, the water passes through a Carbon Polisher that removes parasites, pesticides and lead. Chlorine is also absorbed by the Carbon Polisher making the water clear, odorless and natural tasting. Fifth, the final stage is of the imported Micro-charged Membrane which removes more parasites (those organisms which cause water borne diseases) and again purifies this water. So this gives you the assurance of double protection and safe water.
Input water may contain many materials which affect the taste of water. Of these, PureitExcella removes materials like oil, sand, soil, clay, dirt, decayed animal and plant waste, and harmful pesticide impurities and is therefore likely to improve the taste of water.
However, Pureit Advanced does not remove some dissolved salts and minerals that may contribute to taste like sodium chloride salt, calcium and magnesium. In fact, Pureit Advanced retains some ‘good’ minerals present in drinking water. This may affect the taste of water.
Yes. PureitExcella is a non-electric water purifier and needs no continuous water supply.
Yes, with Pureit you only spend P13 per 5-gallon container of water in terms of ongoing maintenance, compared to spending P25-P40 per 5-gallon container from water refilling stations. You could save more than P 3,500 per year, based on the drinking water consumption of typical family of 5 members.
The top chamber of PureitExcella has a capacity of 9 liters, and the transparent chamber has a capacity of 9 liters. This has been designed such that for a typical family, the water has to be filled in the top chamber only once a day. However if more than 9 liters of water is required in a day, you can fill the top chamber as often as necessary and take the corresponding water out of the transparent chamber.
Typically, it takes is around 3 minutes to purify one glass (240 ml) of water. It will take 1.5 to 2 hours to purify 9 liters of water which is the full capacity of the transparent chamber.
For the drinking water requirement of a typical family of 5 members, one needs to fill completely the top chamber with water only once a day.
Every time you fill the top chamber of a PureitExcella with water, all of it will get purified, and will collect in the transparent chamber within a few hours. So you can keep filling the top chamber as often as you need. However, you must ensure that there is one inch of empty space left in the transparent chamber, and that you don't then pour any more water into the top chamber. If you don't do this, or if you forget to withdraw water from the transparent chamber, the system has been designed to overflow from the side. You may repeat as many cycles a day as you require.
Yes, the water will be free of disease-causing micro-organisms, but the off-taste may not totally eliminated. However by pouring brackish water into the Pureit device, there may be a risk of choking the system, and the ‘Auto Shut-Off ’mechanism may malfunction
This is natural. PureitExcella retains minerals present in the water such calcium and magnesium which are beneficial to health but which affect the taste of water. People who are used to drinking highly de-mineralized water (i.e., distilled water) will notice the taste difference initially. But repeated drinking of Pureit-purified water will cause one to be accustomed to the taste.
The first batch of water that gets purified in your new Pureit, or from a new 'Germkill Kit™', should be drained away when it collects in the transparent chamber. This batch of water may have a distinctive taste and needs to be drained out by opening the tap. It should be noted that even though the first batch of water may have a distinctive taste, it is completely safe, even if accidentally ingested. Once you drain away the first batch, you will get pure and great tasting water in subsequent batches.
Yes, PureitExcella has a replaceable set of consumables called the Germ Kill Kit. The Germ Kill Kit needs to be replaced once the Germ Kill Indicator turns red and the Auto Shut-Off mechanism is activated, which means that the Germ Kill Kit has reached the end of its life, and needs to be replaced.
Pureit Germ-kill Kit has the following three components
- Germ- kill Processor - Removes harmful viruses and bacteria from the water.
- Carbon Polisher - Removes harmful parasites, pesticides and chlorine making the water clean, odorless and natural tasting.
- Micro charged Membrane - Purifies the water again, giving the assurance of double protection.
The frequency of the GKK replacement depends on the actual water consumption at your home. The lifespan of the GKK is approximately 1,500 liters. This will typically last 4-5 months for a household of 5 people, consuming 2 liters of drinking water per person per day.
The Suggested Retail Price of the PureitExcella GKK 1500L is P1,050.
You may purchase the GKK in leading Appliance stores, Department Stores and Hardware stores. You may also call up the Pureit Customer Care hotline to order a GKK for home delivery and installation by a Pureit Service Technician. There is an add-on fee for home service.
Yes. The first GKK with a life of approx. 1500 liters is pre-fitted with the device and carries no additional cost.
When the germ-kill indicator shows red you should change the germ-kill kit. Also, the Auto Shut-Off mechanism, which shuts off the flow of water, will get activated. Once the Auto Shut-Off mechanism is activated, pouring water into the device will cause it to leak.
Water will overflow from the overflow port on the indicator clad.
All Pureit components are made from high quality, durable food-grade plastic designed to last many years.
A Pureit device is designed to last for at least 5 years. With proper care, it can last longer.
Yes, this device comes with easy fitments and hence can be easily cleaned at home, with running water.
