Only 1% of the water on Earth is fit for human consumption, despite the fact that it covers 71% of the planet. Recognizing this, every one of us must ensure that we use water wisely and aim to reduce waste. We rely on the municipal water supply to meet our water needs as city dwellers. Even if community water filtration processes are effective, it may still include toxic elements that are dangerous to our health.
Although municipal water is delivered to homes only after it has been cleaned, it is inevitably dirty due to the numerous pipes it must pass through. Impurities are eliminated during the purification process in municipal water treatment plants, however these ancient pipes and taps contribute to the contamination of the drinking water.
Chlorine is used in almost every water treatment facility to destroy germs in the drinking water, and chlorine in drinking water is extremely detrimental to one’s health. THMs (trihalomethanes), widely known as carcinogens, are formed when chlorine combines with other contaminants in water. Lead and other metallic particles leach into the water when chlorine breaks down the pipes, contaminating it.
Here are some of the best water purifier for municipal water:
Pureit Ultima RO + UV water purifier
Pureit Ultima RO + UV water purifier is suitable for those looking for a sleek, sophisticated, and futuristic water purifier.
This water purifier has a sleek, modern design and a 6-stage filtration system with two germkill kits, making it an ideal choice for purifying any sort of water.
- Design and build
Pureit Ultima, as previously said, has an extremely modern and futuristic appearance.
It includes a fully digital display, which adds to its contemporary appearance.
This water purifier does not have a regular water distribution tap; instead, it has a button for dispensing water. The amazing thing is that every time you click the button for pouring water, a neon light flashes, which is quite cool.
This water purifier’s build quality is also excellent.
Let’s discuss how this water purifier is purified now.
This water purifier has RO and UV water filtration technology in addition to its attractive appearance.
There are two germkill kits included with this water purifier.
The first germkill kit purifies up to 4000 liters of water, while the second purifies up to 8000 liters.
The water purification procedure is completed in six phases by this water purifier.
Let’s have a look at each filter and purification stage of this water purifier now.
The sediment filter is the initial stage of purification, and it eliminates sediments, coarse particle pollutants, and mud from the water.
The Pre RO carbon filter is the second step of filtration, and it removes toxic chlorine and chlorine by-products that occur in the water when it is treated with chlorine. For purification, municipal water is usually treated with chlorine.
This filter also eliminates contaminants from the water that cause a disagreeable taste and odor, as well as volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
The post-carbon sediment filter is the third stage of purification, and it removes any leftover physical contaminants from the water, such as dust, guaranteeing that the RO membrane is not harmed.
RO filtering is the fourth stage of purification. The RO membrane is used in the purification stage. The pores in the RO membrane are extremely small, measuring only 0.00001 microns. Water is forced through this membrane, which allows only water molecules to pass through while blocking dissolved solids and solids from entering the water. Heavy metals such as mercury, lead, and arsenic are also removed.
When there are no visible or dissolved pollutants left in the water, it is sent to the fifth stage for UV purification.
The water is exposed to UV rays from the UV bulb at this stage, which inactivates harmful bacteria, viruses, and protozoans in the water, rendering it microbe-free.
A post-carbon filter and a TDS module make up the sixth and last stage of filtration.
The residual contaminants in the water are removed by the post-carbon filter.
The TDS module increases the amount of important minerals in the water, which improves the taste and makes it safe to drink.
This water purifier can purify up to 9 to 12 liters of water every hour, depending on the TDS, water pressure, and filter life.
Pureit Ultima comes with a completely digital display and alert system that will provide you with more than enough information about water purification.
Pureit classic 23 liters gravity based water purifier
Pureit classic 23 liters water purifier is suitable for those looking for a UF water purifier with sophisticated water purification.
This water purifier has a sophisticated 4th Stage water filtration system as well as a Germkill kit, making it ideal for purifying low TDS or municipal water.
- Design and build
This is a really attractive water filter that is built of food-grade plastic that is both non-toxic and long-lasting.
A typical tap is included with this water purifier for distributing water.
It also has a notification indicator that tells you how long the filter will last.
