Buying Guide for Water Purifier [RO, UV, UF] (2023)

Before buying a water purifier, you should read these essential points and information about water purifiers.
The first thing is the water recovery rate, which checks water consumption and helps conserve water. It should come with multiple purification stages that purify, enrich the water and provide filtered water with this technology. Its design and operation type are also factors to consider before buying it.

Key Point

  • According to BIS, TDS levels must be less than 500ppm. If it is less than 250, you should buy a UF+UV filter, not an RO.
  • You will need more storage capacity for a more prominent family, so purchase one large enough for your family.
  • You should change the filter after a particular time.
  • A well-built water purifier will last for many years.
  • It should have additional safety and security features.
  • The brand’s after-sales service.
  • If your area has groundwater with 300 levels of TDS, you should buy an RO because it will be the best. 
  • The higher the TDS level (above 1500), the higher the water pressure should be; otherwise, your cleaner may be damaged. 

Water Purifier Type!

There are different types of water purifiers, have a look at these main water purifier types.

RO Water Purifier: The full form of RO in the Water Purifier category is ‘Reverse Osmosis.’ It treats the water throughout the process of removing contaminants from water by using pressure to force water molecules through a semipermeable membrane, which is its primary filter.

RO purifiers waste a significant amount of water. RO purifiers waste 35 to 40% of their total tank water. It will waste three liters of water to produce one liter of filtered water. Most RO purifiers not only waste water but also remove necessary minerals from the water, such as calcium and magnesium, which is their main disadvantage. If your budget is limited and your water quality is poor, you should purchase it because contaminated water is more dangerous to your health than reduced minerals.

UV Water Purifiers: UV water purifiers are the full name for ultraviolet. It is primarily used in large areas to clean and kill germs. The same formulae are used by UV water purifiers to kill germs and contaminants in water. This mechanism purifies water by killing microorganisms in the water with ultraviolet rays. UV rays also interfere with the reproduction of their DNA, preventing them from contaminating the water. Simply put, the UV rays make it possible to eradicate all the germs, bacteria, and viruses in the water. Its con is that it cannot reduce the TDS level of the water.

UF Water Purifier: In a water purifier, MF stands for Micro Filtration. The purpose of a UF purifier is to remove dust and large particles from water. Because they rely on gravity, UF purifiers are incredibly cheap and do not require electricity. At some level, it inhibits and eliminates bacteria and viruses. During manual water purifier cleaning, germs are trapped in the UF filter. Buy a UF purifier to reduce TDS in water because UF filters cannot remove dissolved solids from water.
