DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RO, UV, UF
WATER PURIFIERS

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis (RO)

  • Operates on electricity.
  • Needs high water pressure.
  • Kills and filters out germs from the water.
  • Removes dissolved solids such as fluoride, lead and arsenic.
Ultra Violet

Ultra violet (uv)

  • Requires electricity to operate.
  • Requires optimum water pressure.
  • Kills bacteria and germs without removing their bodies.
  • Does not remove dissolved solids like lead, arsenic or flouride.
Ultra Filtration

Ultra Filtration (UF)

  • Does Not Require electricity to operate
  • Works well with any water pressure
  • Blocks and Removes bacteria and viruses
  • Does not remove dissolved solids

While searching for the best water purifier for home use, one is bound to come across a variety of UV, UF Water Purifiers and RO Filters amongst the top brands of best water purifiers in India. While Reverse Osmosis remains to be the preferred choice for water filtration, being an extremely powerful process it ends up filtering all of water's essential minerals as well.

HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT WATER PURIFIER

When you start your research about alkaline water purifiers online, you will often find a lot of jargon about advanced technology, 100% protection from water-borne diseases, and many more claims that sound impressive, but are very difficult to decode when it comes down to understanding how they actually improve your life. To find the best water purifier for your needs, you need to be able to understand various factors that go into cleansing and balancing your water.

Quality of Water

Quality of Water

The first thing is to find the source of your tap water and get it tested for hardness, salinity and TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) level. TDS includes minerals, sulfates, and small amounts of organic matter in water. TDS can originate from natural sources or even sewage. TDS levels greater than 1000 mg/litre make drinking-water increasingly unpalatable and unhealthy.

Purification Technology

Water Storage

You must choose a water purifier after considering a strong buildup that ensures maximum durability. Most importantly, you should make sure that the plastic is food grade too.

Water Storage Capacity

Purification Technology

Depending on the quality and source of your water, you can pick a water purifier fit for your needs. RO purification technology works best for water with higher TDS levels. RO technology filters heavy metals, particulates, minerals through selectively permeable membranes and provides purified water. If TDS is less than 200ppm, you can choose UF (Ultra Filteratiion) technology which can remove impurities while retaining key minerals.

Things to consider
before buying a water purifier
Quality of your water

Tip 1

Quality of your water

  • The source of water
  • The TDS level of water
  • The pH level of water
Quality of RO/UF membrane

Tip 2

The quality of the RO/UF membrane

  • If there are pre-filters in the membrane?
  • What impurities can the membrane remove?
  • How often does it need replacement?
  • Is there an Auto-flush function in the machine?
Servicing and maintenance of water purifier

Tip 3

Servicing and Maintenance of the Water purifier

  • What is the service protocol?
  • What is the company’s turn around time regarding servicing and repairs?
  • How often will you need regular maintenance Service for your water purifier?
  • All costs related to repairs and servicing.
Storage capacity and quality of storage tank

Tip 4

Storage Capacity and quality of the storage tank

  • How many litres of water can it store?
  • What material is the storage tank made of?
  • What precautions/systems are in place to avoid bacterial growth in the tank?

Iliv Ro+UV Alkaline water

When to choose RO based water purifiers?

If the TDS of your source water is more than 500 PPM and if water contains dissolved solids like fluoride, arsenic, lead etc, you require an RO System of filtration. Its a good idea to get your water tested in a lab or by a qualified technician . Depending on the water test report, if water contains fluoride, arsenic, lead more than suggested range, you have to go for RO water purifier.

Reverse osmosis is used in situations where all particles including dissolved substance must be stripped from the water. Some people prefer RO water from their refrigerator or tap, especially if they’re on ground water supply.

Iliv UV+ UF Water purifiers

When to choose UF based water purifiers?

Ultrafiltration is the filtration method of choice for people who prefer minerals left in their water but still want microscopic contaminants taken out. If the TDS of your water is less than 500 PPM, you can go for a UF water Purifier. A UF system wastes less water as well.

Ultrafiltration (UF) is a type of membrane filtration in which hydrostatic pressure forces a liquid against a semipermeable membrane. Ultrafiltration uses hollow fibers of membrane material and the feed water flows either inside the shell, or in the lumen of the fibers. Suspended solids and solutes of high molecular weight are retained, while water and low molecular weight solutes pass through the membrane.

WHAT IS UNDER THE SINK WATER
PURIFIER AND OVER THE SINK

Under The Sink Water Purifier

UNDER THE SINK WATER PURIFIER (UTC)

Also known as under the counter (UTC) , Highly efficient, Under-sink or Under-the-Counter water purifiers work hidden and out of sight, making them the Best for all the Perfectionists and artists out there. The looks set aside, the best part is saving up on room. These purifiers don’t encroach onto your much-needed counter space. Instead, they can be fitted neatly below sinks, making your kitchen work-space as tidy as can be.

Over The Sink Water Purifier

OVER THE SINK WATER PURIFIER (OTC)

Over the counter (OTC) Wall mounted or table top water purifier is mounted on the wall or on the kitchen table, whereas . The technology used in these machines are similar to that of under-sink but they may not dispense water without using electricity. These are more traditionally designed water purifiers and takes up more space than the modern UTC purifiers as the entire purifier is one unit and is mounted in the vicinity of eye.

ILIV WATER PURIFICATION PROCESS
