Spend Each Penny Wisely! A Guide to Choosing the Best Water Purifier for Borewell Water

A good water purifier should be able to ensure that you and your family can enjoy clean water anytime. Listed below are tips to help you identify a water purifier that cope with the demands of borewell water:

Ensure you select a water purifier that can eliminate the maximum number impurities from borewell water. HUL’s Pureit Mineral RO + UV removes 1 crore viruses and 10 crore bacteria in 1 litre of water.

1) Removing Impurities

Since borewell water is extracted from deeper layers of the ground, it may contain impurities such as: bacteria, viruses, and heavy metals like fluoride, lead, arsenic etc. These elements make the water taste sour, smelly and hard to drink.

A good water purifier must be able to cope with regular usage and ideally be able to remove up to 1800 PPM (Parts Per Million) of TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) from your water.

2) High Volume Purification

Most households use nearly 1200 litres of water daily. Drinking water accounts for a significant portion from that amount. Finding a water purifier that has good filtration capacity (between 10-12 litres/hour) for frequent use is essential.

HUL's Pureit Classic RO + UV have a 12 litres/hour filtration rate with 5 litres of storage capacity, which is a good choice for small to medium families.

3) Durable and Economical

Given the large volumes of daily water consumption, filter life is also a factor one must consider. The taxing nature of cleaning borewell water means that your water purifier needs to have a long lasting tap to be easily maintainable without breaking down. A high maintenance purifier means more money out of your pocket after all!

4) Effective and Technologically Advanced

To deal with the many types of impurities that borewell water may carry, you should ensure your water purifier comes with an RO + UV (Reverse Osmosis + Ultra Violet) purification to give you 100% fresh and pure drinking water.

HUL's Pureit Mineral RO + UV can easily eliminate the dissolved solids, organic and inorganic impurities. It also adds minerals post purification to enrich the taste of water. If technology is a key consideration for you, then this purifier is the cream of the crop.
