DIY Steps to Troubleshoot and Fix Your Water Purifier!

Water purifiers have become an integral part of every Indian household due to the numerous health benefits they provide. While we enjoy the benefits of safe drinking water with the help of a water purifier – it’s equally important to maintain their ability to deliver safe drinking water in the long run. Here are some common issues you can encounter with water purifiers, and easy solutions for them.

RO Purifier is Not Working

When you switch on your RO (Reverse Osmosis) water purifier and there’s no LED light or sound coming from the unit, it means the power supply cable is faulty. We suggest you replace it.

Water Flow is Too Low

If the water flowing from the tank is too slow, it probably means that one of the filters has choked and it needs to be replaced. Before taking a decision, it’s imperative to call a professional to have a check-up done to know whether it needs to be replaced.

Water Has Bad Taste or Odour

If you’ve recently installed a new water purifier (RO or any other type) in your house, it is imperative that you clean the purifier storage tank at least once before start using the purified water for drinking. If your purifier is not new and you’re facing this issue, the filters or membrane might have choked and need to be replaced.

Water Leakage

If water is leaking from the filter, it means that the fittings are not tight enough. In that case, tighten up all the connections. If the water pressure is high, check to make sure the fitting connecting the purifier to the water supplying tap is not loose.


If you have recently changed your filter, you might notice some vibrations in the water purifier. Vibrations occur due to varying pressure levels between different filters. These vibrations generally fade away within 3-4 days, and there’s no damage created.
