WATER PURIFIER: Are you finding a water purifier? Is it right to drink Mineral water? Leave all this. Is the water purified by RO, UV, UF or MF actually clean water?
RO is a good filter technology but for 1L pure water, it wastes 3L water. It eliminates minerals like Calcium, Magnesium and Sodium. Therefore it is not a safe technology. You get merely a liquid and not water. Buy an RO when it is absolutely necessary.
Next comes UV filters that kill germs, dirt and bacteria. Neither do they disturb the taste of water nor do they change the colour of the water. They are very cost-effective.
UF water purifiers remove even the dead bacteria and germs from the water.
The only downside of the UF filters is that they aren’t able to remove the dissolved solids in the water.
MF- Micro Filtration System.
The Micro-Filtration system removes all the suspended and visible impurities like mud, dirt, sand, rust etc. from the water. However, MF purifiers cannot remove dissolved salts or harmful metals.
Then comes the biggest marketing gimmick- TDS Controller. Where ever you find TDS or MTDS is written, remember there is strong marketing going on there. TDS adds impure water to pure water to increase or decrease the TDS levels. We highly recommend you to stay away from purifiers with TDS or MTDS.
“According To WHO- 3000 ppm TDS (Total dissolved solid) can be consumed directly without any filtration.”
“According to BIS (bureau of Indian Standards) 500 TDS water can be consumed without any filtration.”
We recommend you follow WHO’s guidelines and use a good purifier
- If the TDS level of water is 250-300 then you don’t need RO. You must buy a purifier with UF+UV combination.
- If the TDS level is above 300, then you must buy RO+UV+UF combination.
You can check the TDS level by using a TDS meter that costs INR 250. Check TDS level before buying RO. Unnecessary cleaning will turn the water into merely a liquid. Minerals are essential and mineral-free water is just a liquid, not water.
The first filter under the UV+UF category in 2021 is Aquaguard Aura which comes with a 7L capacity. It has UF+UV purification which is suitable for 250-300 TDS level water. It works with 6 stages of purification. It has Active Copper Technology with a copper cartridge that releases copper ions. Aquaguard claims e-Boiling technology, but it is just a marketing gimmick. You get a UV filter and that’s it. According to the company, you get Mineral Guard Technology.

It costs INR 12,000. There are 2 major problems- some people faced the leakage problem whereas some faced delay in installation. These are not big cons and are ignorable but the taste after purification is very good. UF filter does not drastically decrease the TDS levels. It just removes metals and dust and this is what is required if the TDS level is 300.
A.O Smith Z1
Next in the list of UF+UV water purifiers in 2021 is A, O Smith Z1 model which has a 10L water storage capacity. It has UF+UV purification which is suitable for 250-300 TDS level water.
