Why is RO Purified Water Better Than Boiling Water?

Drinking water can be purified in a number of ways. You might have heard from your grandmother that they used to prefer boiling water before drinking as there weren’t many purifiers available in those days.


Boiling water for drinking is the most traditional, widely practiced treatment method of water purification. When tap water is boiled it kills almost all the bacteria and germs which are present in the water. However, the water can’t be considered pure completely because it has its own limitations. Just because boiling water is the most common technique there are many disadvantages. Those disadvantages will automatically seem filters or water purifiers for home a far better option if you want to consume pure water.


There have been many advancements in water purification technology like using RO water purifiers as it has become the most preferred as well as the safest choice for the water filtration systems.

You might think that if boiling water is not that effective, then what does it remove?

Boiling water is such an age-old method of purification which is followed even today. However, not many people are aware of the fact that boiling water doesn’t remove contaminants like viruses and heavy metals from the water. The process might kill pathogens that are lurking in the water or some Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) but this process can cause a lot of inconveniences which is why it is mostly used during emergencies.

What are the demerits of Boiling Water?

If the tap water at your home has TDS, toxic metals, chemicals like lead, asbestos, mercury, pesticides, solvents, etc., or nitrates then maybe boiling is not the best water purification method for you. Boiling might not be able to vapourize any harmful contaminants. It also needs the energy to boil water which might be difficult to get every time.

Why to opt for an RO water purifier instead of boiling water?

RO water purification systems are used by millions of people to drink healthy and pure water. So to answer your question is yes, RO purifiers must be used at home for the safety of you and your family.

Drinking water TDS represents the total concentration of dissolved substances in water. Inorganic salts and a negligible quantity of biodegradable matter make up TDS. Boiling the water does not remove TDS. That is why Pureit RO purifiers with 7-stage purification technology and effective RO membranes is essential.


Although bacteria may be your main concern, total dissolved solids can also affect the quality and safety of your water. Sulfates, chloramines, nitrates, salt, magnesium, calcium, or metals like copper, iron, chromium, and lead are examples of common TDS components.


Even when taken in very little amounts, several of these substances can be quite harmful.
For instance, corroded or damaged plumbing might allow lead to leak into the water system, contaminating the water supply and posing a risk of physical damage. The acceptable level of TDS in drinking water supplies is determined by the WHO and BIS in India. BIS sets the standard and treatment techniques necessary to protect public health.


The main reason why RO water purifiers have become such a necessity for every household is that the bacteria, microbes, and other dissolved impurities which are found in the water can only be removed using an RO purifier including hardness, toxic metals and TDS.


Reverse osmosis works by pushing water through a semipermeable membrane which demineralizes or deionizes the water. The membrane only allows water molecules to pass through eliminating dissolved salts, bacteria, and pyrogens.

What are the advantages of Reverse Osmosis?

Do you know that the harmful contaminants which can be found in the tap water multiply in our intestine easily and can lead to a number of health problems like, fatigue, bloating, diarrhea, weight loss, loss of appetite, and gastrointestinal diseases?

As mentioned earlier, by eliminating harmful pathogens and bacteria, RO makes the water safe for consumption.Water purifier RO can help in removing 99% of chemicals that are present in the water so that you don't bear the taste and smell of chlorine. It also helps in removing lead, mercury, chlorine, fluoride and asbestos which in turn reduces the risk of many related illnesses and diseases.

Boiled Water vs RO Purified Water


Boiled Water RO Purified Water
Boiled water can remove bacteria to a certain extend
 RO can help to remove metal, chemical, and toxic waste.
To boil water we need to use fuel/gas and no filters are used in the process of purification. But the cost of fuel is expensive
 RO purifiers run with electricity in order  operate. It uses a semi-permeable membrane and pressure of flowing water in order to remove contaminated wastes.
Through boiling, water can produce some types of unwanted elements which cannot be vaporized.
But RO purifiers will remove all of the toxic wastes such as hard metals or chemicals from purified water.
The water quantity is also reduced because of boiling as the water vaporizes.
There is no change in quantity of water through the RO purification method.
Since boiling doesn’t use any extra pieces of equipment it does not require any maintenance.
Not all RO systems require regular annual maintenance. The period to change filters will depend on the usage and water pressure. Pureit RO water purifiers have Smartsense filters that provide digitalised warnings on when to change the filters


RO purification is an advanced technical process that helps in removing not only dissolved impurities like salts and heavy metals from water but also makes it suitable for drinking.


Although boiling water is the oldest way of purification, it only kills minor microorganisms and doesn't remove physical impurities, chemicals, and other contaminants making the water unsafe for consumption because the tds in water does not changes.
