Know the myths and facts of water purifiers for home

In the world of water purification, myths and misconceptions often cloud the path to understanding what truly guarantees safe and healthy drinking water. From old-fashioned beliefs in certain purification methods to doubts about the effectiveness of modern technologies, these misconceptions can hinder our quest for cleaner, purer hydration.

If you are wondering which of these can a water purifier not do, or can do then read on. Let's embark on a journey to debunk these prevalent myths surrounding RO system, shedding light on the truths that pave the way to a clearer, safer drinking experience for all. 

RO System Myth #1: Boiling water is same as water purification

 Boiling serves as a common method to eliminate disease-causing microorganisms from water. However, it demands a 20-minute boiling period and additional time for cooling. Boiling fails to eliminate dissolved impurities such as pesticide residues, heavy metals, chlorinated by-products, and organic compounds.
Moreover, even after boiling for 20 minutes, the water's pathogen-free status until consumption isn't guaranteed. If left uncovered, boiled water can undergo re-contamination, compromising its purity. While boiling is helpful, it doesn't assure absolute safety, leaving room for potential re-contamination if the water remains exposed.
Pureit Revito Prime uses Best-in-class# Filtration technology to provide safe drinking water. It’s RO membrane is certified by WQA for heavy metal removal*.

RO System Myth #2: Water purifiers deprive water of vital minerals.

Although specific water purification methods may remove essential minerals, it's not universally true. Pureit Vital Max RO system not only purifies water but also adds back occurring natural and essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium, typically eliminated by standard purifiers during the purification process.
In addition to this, Pureit’s Copper RO system also provides copper-enriched RO water through its unique Copper Charge TechnologyTM. It allows you to have both RO-purified and copper water at just a click.

RO System Myth #3: Significant water wastage:

During the RO purification process, TDS and hazardous metal contaminants are extracted from the source water, generating wastewater containing these chemicals.
The volume of rejected water discharged relies on the intake water quality. Higher TDS levels in the source water result in increased reject water. However, this doesn't equate to wastage. Pureit offers Eco water purifiers designed to reduce water wastage significantly. Pureit’s Eco Water Saver Purifier is a unique multi-stage purifier integrating Eco Recoveryᵀᴹ. It ensures efficient purification while achieving higher water savings than other RO systems. This purifier minimizes reject water to less than one glass for every glass of water purified, contrasting with other ROs that waste up to 2.5 glasses per glass purified.

RO System Myth #4: Higher Maintenance Cost

The misconception surrounding high maintenance costs for RO systems is unfounded. After purchasing a water purifier, filter replacements are necessary based on your water source rather than frequently. Pureit RO + UV purifiers have Smartsense indicators* that signal 15 days before your Germkill Kit and filters expire. Therefore, the replacements are required only then, rather than preemptively. This intelligent feature ensures that you don’t incur excessive expenses on frequent filter changes, offering a cost-effective and efficient approach to maintenance.
