FAQ's about Water Purifiers
What Types of Water Purifiers are Best Suited for Home Use?
For home use, Reverse Osmosis (RO), Ultraviolet (UV), and Ultra Filtration (UF) water purifiers are commonly recommended. The choice depends on water quality in your area. RO is effective for treating hard, salty water, while UV purifiers are good for soft water areas.
What is the Difference Between RO, UV, and UF Water Purifiers?
RO purifiers use a membrane to remove ions, molecules, and larger particles. UV purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill bacteria and viruses, but they don’t remove dissolved solids. UF purifiers use a membrane but work without electricity, effective for removing bacteria and cysts but not dissolved salts.
How Often Do I Need to Change Filters in My Water Purifier?
The lifespan of filters varies from one type to another. Generally, sediment filters should be changed every 6 months, carbon filters annually, and RO membranes every 2-3 years. Always refer to your model’s manual for specific guidelines.
