Things to Consider Before Buying Water Purifiers

- Storage Tank: This should be according to your family size and on average 7-8 L is sufficient for a family size of 3-4 members.
- Display: A good display that can show or indicate the filter status, water levels, and the current process is beneficial for any consumer.
- Area Size: You should consider this and should keep in mind that where you will place the purifier in your home and if the purifier will be fit in your desired location or not.
- Filtration: some purifiers have 4-5 and 7 stages but it should have these three filtrations i.e RO, UV, and mineral booster at least.
Types of Water Purifiers
There are different types of water purifiers because one type of purifier does not fit into all water conditions.
So, to find which water purifier you need according to your current water conditions you should check on what are the different types of water purifiers and their uses.
Now, let’s look at this in detail and find out the perfect water purifier for your home.
1. Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Purifiers
This type of water purifier has a reverse osmosis purification process. In its whole process, it uses a membrane which removes ions and bacteria, and large particles from the water and makes it cleaner and better for drinking. Yes, it definitely cleans the water and makes it drinkable but this water will not be healthy for our body. You do not know why?
Don’t worry, RO water purifiers filters all particles with minerals too. So, it gives you kind of a distilled water rather than pure and natural water. RO type water is not present in the nature and you can only get this water by RO water purifiers only.
If your house’s water has more than 500 TDS levels then we recommend you to go for an RO water purifier with TDS adjusters or an alkaline mineral cartridge. There are alkaline water purifiers if you want to drink alkaline water. TDS adjuster will adjust the level of water and improves the taste and make water more natural too.
2. UV Water Purifiers
Ultra Violet Rays water purifier works in a membrane and when the water flows inside the membrane it flows through the UV light and it can kill the microorganisms and bacteria present in the water.UV water purifiers with pre-filter and UF filter are not sufficient for you as they can filter up to 500 TDS level only.
Some of the UV water purifiers come with under sink capability which can be stored under the kitchen sink. These are called under-the-sink water purifiers.
If you have high TDS levels in your water then this will not effectively work for you because, in high TDS, small particles and bacteria can pass the UV membrane. Thus, alone it will not work perfectly in the high TDS level.
3. Gravity Water Purifiers
This water purifier needs gravity for the purification as you have to manually fill the water into the jar and water flows from the upside-down and goes through the purification process. It can eliminate the small particles but it can not eliminate the viruses and this is not suitable for bore water and chlorine, fluorine, and other salts present in the water.
But they have very less price and you can consider this type of purifier if you are not facing any problem with water quality and you need one for basic needs.
What is TDS?
TDS stands for the total dissolved solids in a liquid. This means that water from any sources like river, lakes , ground water, sea water have some dissolved solid inside it.
Water contains some metals, microorganisms , minerals inside it. These solids combined in a liquid form called TDS.
This type of solids can not be seen through the naked eye but you can measure it with a TDS meter. Before we move towards the TDS meter you should know why it is necessary.
As we have discussed above there are three types of water purifiers in the market and TDS plays a very important role in deciding which one you should buy.
Ground or Boring Water TDS
This includes water from tube wells, hand pump as well. Generally, if you are using groundwater then there is a high chance that the water has a higher TDS level.
This water has the most high level of total dissolved solids in it. If this is the case then you should use best RO water purifier.
The TDS levels start from 500ppm-5000ppm or more. We are telling you this on the basis of general conditions it may vary on other different conditions as well.
River or Lake Water TDS
This is a best source for drinking water. If your house is getting water from the river than there is no high TDS value but there must be other microorganisms which you need to remove for your health and safety.
For that UV water purifiers are the best one because they are good in maintaining the TDS level and they also remove other harmful bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms from the water.
And make water perfect for your daily consumption. But if you talk about Indian river water than it is very polluted and it is not either directly safe unless you are living in mountains.
So, we recommend you to check the water TDS level before you consider to buy a water purifier for yourself.
Municipal Water TDS
Most of the metropolitan cities you will find the municipal water TDS level is somwhere around 300-500. For this you have to install RO and UV water purifier.
Because as RO will reduce the TDS level and UV will fight the microorganisms inside the water. If you are living in a renter property and do not know the source of your water.
Then we recommend you to check the water TDS by a TDS meter as you will know that if the TDS is more than 500 than you have ground water.
Otherwise, it is either a municipal water or a river water. Most of the big cities are mostly dependent on municipal corporation water in India.
What Is A TDS Meter?
TDS meter is a device which is used to measure the TDS levels in a liquid. You can use this meter to know the exact TDS values of your house water.
The price of these meter are not very expensive and they are very affordable. You can easily find a good TDS meter within Rs. 500/-.
The detecting range of a TDS ranging from: 0-9990 ppm.
How to Measure TDS Level Using TDS Meter?
Below is a step by step guide to use a TDS meter to know the levels.
- Take a cup or a half glass of water .
- Switch on the meter and remove the protective cap.
- You have to place the meter inside the water and the digital display will be at upper direction.
- Keep the meter inside the the glass for 15-20 seconds.
- It will start displaying the TDS levels.
- Once the TDS level is stable you have to press the hold button.
- Then you can take the meter out and see the reading.
It depends on your usage but ideally a RO membrane usually lasts for 1-2 years. UV chamber have the same life span as a RO membrane but you have to change the sediment filters or other filter once a year minimum. This will increase the overall durability of the product.
No, if the TDS is below 50 this means that it does not contain essential minerals in the water. Thus, your body will not get the minerals and we do not recommend this water purifier for you. The ideal TDS should be 50-200 that is safe for drinking.
The annual maintenance cost of a water purifier depends on the brand and the variant of a water purifier. But it can go from 2500-5000 Rs annually. This is not fixed but if you are looking for detailed information then you should check our AMC post.
It totally depends on the source of water and the TDS value of it. If you have water with 500 or more TDS levels than you can go for RO+UV water purifier but if you have lower levels. Then you can consider to buy a UV water purifier instead.
You can easily store water for 1-2 days but we recommend do not store water in a water purifier more than 2 days. If you do not use the water purifier a lot then buy a smaller storage capacity water purifier but you make sure that you are not storing it for many days.
Water purifiers are mostly necessity now but if you are purchasing the water purifier for the first time then our post will help you to know enough about the water purifier so that you can make your buying decision easily and effectively.
We have mentioned all the good water purifiers in our list and in a different budgets as well. So, you can take refrance of this list in any budget.
