What are the most popular myths and facts related to water purifiers?
Did you know that water makes up 70% of the human body? Clean water is required by the body for a variety of tasks, including keeping it hydrated and washing away contaminants. The greatest approach to having clean water at home is to have a water purifier. With the increase in the human population and rampant growth in the number of industries in India, there is a marked decrease in the quality of surface and groundwater resources. In recent times, it is hard to find pure and clean water that is also safe to drink.
Given this condition, it is even more critical that we understand filtration processes and the various water purifiers on the market to ensure that our drinking water is of high quality. Pureit offers the best RO water purifiers that are easy to install and have the best maintenance system.
Myths About RO Water Purifier
A majority of people opt for water purifying systems as they are best equipped to handle such high levels of impurities. As RO water purifiers are growing in popularity, it's only natural for people to believe myths about them. In this article, we will try to bust some of these popular myths about water purifiers.
Myth #1: RO water purifiers remove beneficial minerals from water
Water does not contain minerals when it falls from the sky, the minerals come from contact with the ground. This is why the concentration can vary so much from geographic region to geographic region. However, it is clear that minerals were intended to be in our drinking water, as they are naturally occurring and are essential to our health.
Essential minerals are a class of nutrients that are vital for maintaining the body’s health. That said, not all minerals are good for the body. Some minerals are only needed in very small quantities. Others, such as calcium and magnesium are needed in larger amounts.
Pureit RO water purifiers have Special Mineral Cartridges that enrich water by adding essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium to render water that is not just safe for consumption but also healthy. These cartridges sit between the holding tank and the faucet and add naturally occurring minerals, ensuring the water is perfect the very moment it comes out of your tap.
As a result, today's RO water purifiers are available with mineral filters that add back vital minerals to ensure your drinking water is safe and healthy.
Myth #2: RO filtered water is unhealthy to drink
The RO purified water lacks critical minerals. People believe that RO cleaned water is unfit for human consumption. However, research has shown that this is not the case.
One of the greatest ways to filter water is using a contemporary RO purifier. Reverse osmosis eliminates impurities by forcing water across a semipermeable membrane. The sediment and carbon filters remove harmful contaminants, heavy metals, TDS and bad taste and odors while assisting in the retention of essential nutrients that are good for the human body.
RO water purifiers eliminates even toxic chemicals and impurities, making it the purest drinking water. Hence water purifiers eventually provide healthier and tastier drinking water.
Myth 3 – The end result of RO filtered water is acidic and has a low pH.
Many people believe that RO water purifiers remove important minerals while also lowering the pH level of the water.
We've also seen how important it is to have specialized preparations in places, such as and Mineralisers, to replace the crucial minerals lost throughout the process in a water purifier.
True, RO purifiers remove TDS from the source water, lowering the pH of the water to around 7. The pH level of water can sometimes go below 7, making it mildly acidic. However, drinking slightly acidic water has no negative effects on the human body. In any case, milk and several other beverages we consume are acidic. Hence an RO water purifier helps in retaining good minerals and gives your body the best nutrients to develop and improve your immune system.
Myth #4: The RO water purification process wastes a significant amount of water.
RO water purifiers waste water
TDS and other hazardous metal contaminants are removed from the source water during the RO purification process. As a result of this procedure, it releases wastewater containing all these dangerous chemicals
The quality of the intake water determines how much reject water is discharged. If the input water source has a high TDS level, the amount of rejected water will be greater. However, this does not imply that water is being wasted. Pureit offers a variety of Eco water purifiers that reduces the water wastage. Pureit’s Eco Water Saver Purifier is one of a kind multi-stage purifier with Eco Recovery Technology. It delivers efficient purification providing high water saving compared to any other RO. It minimises reject water to less than 1 glass for every glass of water purified vs Other ROs that waste upto 2.5 glasses per glass purified. This can help save up to 80 glasses each day!
Myth #5: Reverse osmosis is a time-consuming procedure.
The basic goal of an RO water purifier is to filter water and create clean, safe drinking water. TDS and other pollutants are abundant in water supply, which can be hazardous to human health. The filtration process is the most effective method for obtaining pure and safe drinking water. Pureit RO water purifiers also provide faster purification rate. Pureit purifiers can purify water up to 24 litres per hour. The time taken to purify is influenced by the type of your water supply, the longevity of the device’s filters, the input water pressure, and other impurities present in the water.
However, RO water purifiers filter water quicker than UV water purifiers because of its large storage tank capacity. The purified water is stored in the tank to enable continuous flow of drinking water for your family. If you stay in a larger family, the storage capacity of a water purifier is very important to provide safe and pure drinking water. Pureit’s RO purifiers have a storage tank capacity of approximately up to 7 litres under running water. The storage tank is well-shielded and the process of filling the storage tank is fully automatic. Hence, when you take water out of the tank, the purification process automatically refills the storage tank.
Myth #7: Activated carbon Vs RO filters
Activated carbon filters are more effective than RO filters.
This one is clearly a myth because activated carbon filters and RO filters have completely different jobs. Heavy metal contaminants such as lead and arsenic are removed by the RO process,whereas, activated carbon filters remove organic pollutants and improve the taste of water, but they are unable to remove TDS from the source.
Activated carbon filters, at their best, can help to support the RO water purification process and ensure that the purified water tastes nice.
Myth 8# Installation Procedure
Purifiers can only be installed on the wall
It is also observed that individuals who live in rented apartments avoid purchasing a purifier because they believe it would be necessary to be mounted on the wall, which their landlord might not allow.This is not the case. Water purifiers can also be placed on a counter and used with the same simplicity.
Facts about RO water purifier
Water can be a source of infections, therefore it's important to make sure the water we drink is pure and clean. That is why we have a water purifier installed in our homes and offices. They are available in a variety of versions, each with its own set of technology and a range of prices. While having a water purifier installed is gradually becoming a legal obligation, there are a few aspects to be aware of.
Here are six fascinating facts regarding water purifiers that you probably didn't know.
Fact #1: There isn't a one-size-fits-all solution for water purification.
All technologies are unique and are tailored to a certain type of water contamination. For dissolved salts, for example, reverse osmosis is optimal, while UV is best for biological pollutants. When compared to bottled water, using water purifiers is a more environmentally friendly option.
Water purifiers in the house help to reduce the number of bottles that end up in landfills. It also aids in reducing the amount of water lost during the manufacture of bottled water.
Fact #2: Filtering rates vary between purifiers
Purifiers filter at different speed. Filters often seen in homes and stores include water filter pitchers, end-of-tap or faucet-mounted filters, faucet-integrated (built-in) filters, on-counter filters, under-sink filters, and whole-house treatment units. You should choose a model according to how much water you use and how patient you are. Every water purifier has different rates of filtering out healthy drinking water. All the RO water purifiers at Pureit have quality filtering rates.
Fact #3: Water purifiers come in a variety of models
Faucet-mounted, and countertop water purifiers are available in the market. Because of the rising levels of contamination, water purifiers have become a need rather than a luxury item. You can choose between UV, or RO water purifiers depending on the quality of the water you are getting supplied by the corporation. When it comes to choosing a water purifier, Pureit’s wall-mounted and table-top models have been a popular option. Water purifiers of this type are simple to install in traditional Indian households.
Fact #4: Purifiers come with multi-stage purification processes
In some cases, single-stage filters are inadequate to remove all the contaminants, especially when contamination levels are high. All harmful bacteria, metals, and chemical pollutants need to be removed to have that clean, safe water for home use.
A multi-stage water filter system comes in handy to ensure that the water flowing in your house is risk-free.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) system offers a multi-stage filtration of water by combining active carbon and also micro filtration. Here, the tap water is made to pass through a membrane hat has very small-sized pores and this weed out minerals and micro-organisms in water. Pureit water purifiers with copper enrich technology offers 7 stage purification that cleanses water by letting it pass through Pre-sediment, Pre-carbon and Mesh Filters that remove impurities and dirt, a RO Membrane that helps remove excess total dissolved salts (TDS), hardness and heavy metals, and a UV Chamber to inactivate bacteria or viruses, a Post RO Carbon Filter to enhance the taste and finally, a Micro-filtration Membrane which ensures that the water is purified not once but thrice.
Fact #5: The cost of maintenance is a critical factor to consider
When purchasing a water purifier, we usually examine the market price with any available discounts. You should also consider the price of maintenance, such as filter replacements and AMCs (Annual Maintenance Contracts).There are a variety of water purifiers on the market that use various technologies. As one among the trusted water purifier companies in India, Pureit Water provides best quality and durable products that are within the budget. Pureit believes that it is essential to change filters only when the device’s purification capacity is exhausted.
It is not compulsory to change the filters during every maintenance check. Every device has different purification capacity and thus changing its sediment or GKK filters varies with its specifications and features. Also Pureit devices have Smartsense Indicators, which is a Digital Advance System that will warn you 15 days before the Germ Kill Kit expiry so that you know when it is time to actually change your filters.
Additionally, in case you do not replace/change it within 15 days, the ‘Double Purity Lock’ feature automatically stops the supply of water, thus, offering you and your family 100% assurance of purity and safety for your drinking water.
At Pureit, you can have the guarantee that there will be no additional installation charges when you purchase the product.
Fact #6: The first line of defense against harmful contaminants is a filter
The presence of heavy metals such as lead and mercury, chlorine, pesticides and dirt in drinking water can be fatal. Although they some are naturally occurring elements, they can be extremely toxic. Lead is released in water due to old corroded water pipes. On the other hand, mercury is released into the air by industries such as thermal power plants that spread through rain or snow. These heavy metals can cause severe health problems if consumed.
RO water purifiers help in removing such harmful impurities through different stages of filteration. Incase of RO + UV water purifiers, the high-intensity UV chamber inactivates bacteria and viruses. As a result, don't overthink whether or not to get a water purifier. Health comes first, and investing in high-quality water purifiers could be the first step toward that goal.
