Whenever we sit to consider a good water purifier, certain factors immediately crop into our minds, such as – whether it is RO or UV or a mixture of both, whether it is RO+, how many liters it can dispense at every filling, and the like. However, when you get down to look at some of the best water purifiers in India, it is but obvious that you wouldn’t want to compromise, and since it is drinking water we are taking into consideration, you shouldn’t compromise either. Thus, let us take a quick look at the factors which we need to consider before buying the best water purifiers in India.

(P.S. – It is necessary to keep in mind that, irrespective of how good any water purifier may be, on average around 650 ml of water is usually thrown out from the machine as wastewater or unclear water. So, even though it may not be fit for consumption, you could use that excess water to wash utensils or water plants or for any other household purpose except for drinking.)

How to know which type of water purifier would be ideally suited for you?

We have provided you with an in-depth understanding of what are the different purifier technologies used in any water purifier, below. However, merely using that knowledge might not be enough to guide you to know which specific water purifier might be the ideal one for you. So, we will help you out in narrowing down your choices, by taking into consideration certain key factors which are as follows –

  • The first thing you should do is, conduct a TDS test of the water available in your house. It is necessary to keep in mind that other than the value of the TDS, the individual dissolved substances are of importance too. Take into consideration – if the TDS of your water is below 300, there may be chances of your water containing a high amount of mercury, lead, and arsenic.
  • Having said this, it is important to know which purifier to opt for, based on the TDS of your water. Given below is details on the same –
  • When the TDS is below 300 ppm, opt for a UV water purifier. The reason behind this is, water below 300 ppm might contain bacteria but the water won’t be turbid.
  • When the TDS is below 300 ppm, opt for a UV+UF water filter, if the water is seen to contain bacteria and is also turbid.
  • When the TDS is over 300 ppm, opt for an RO water purifier with a TDS controller, if the water is free from both turbidity and bacteria.
  • When the TDS is over 300 ppm, opt for a RO+UV+UF with a TDS controller, if the water is both turbid and also contains a host of harmful bacteria.

Keep in mind that if the location of your water source is anywhere near to an industry, then it would be best to do a chemical test of the water available at home, to understand the chemical impurities present in your water, to help you decide on the best water purifiers in India.

In case you still aren’t convinced enough, choose to go with a water purifier which has RO+UV+UF filtration in it.

What is the correct consumable TDS of water?

To help you decide better, we will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the different TDS levels of water and whether that specific level is fit for human consumption or not.

  • If the TDS is less than 300 ppm, then the water quality is excellent
  • If the TDS is between 300 to 500 ppm, then the water quality is considered good and fit for human consumption
  • If the TDS is between 500 to 900 ppm, then the water quality is considered not good and should not be consumed
  • If the TDS is between 900 to 1200 ppm, then the water quality is considered poor and is unfit for human consumption
  • If the TDS is more than 1200 ppm, then it is considered unacceptable and harmful for human consumption

Keeping this information in mind is helpful no doubt, but the main question lies as to how would you get the accurate measurement of the TDS level in your water? It is simple because all you need is a TDS meter. Make sure that you buy a good quality one, which usually costs within Rs. 500-600. In case you are unable to buy, you could also inform the man who comes to install your purifier to provide you with a reading of the TDS level in your water, so as to help you keep track of the water you consume and to also know whether or not it is fit for drinking.

What are the features to consider when looking at some of the best water purifiers in India

When you plan on check out some of the best water purifiers in India, you must take into consideration the following factors –

  • The water purification technique involved – There are three ways in which purified water can be obtained. They are – Activated Carbon Filters (ACF), Ultraviolet Purifiers (UV), and Reverse Osmosis Purifiers (RO). A detailed look into the three are as follows –
  • Activated Carbon Filters – This follows the absorption method. Thus, when water passes through the carbon filter, then the activated carbon begins to absorb the harmful molecules which are present in the water. This is usually added as a complementary filter along with the other two methods – UV and RO.

Ultraviolet Purifiers (UV) – This is usually considered the best when looking to get rid of the bacteria and viruses but without the removal of necessary minerals that are present in the water. It is considered the most eco-friendly way to purify your drinking water as it also ensures the least amount of water wastage.

It is often considered a preferred choice as an industrial water purifier. Some of its pros include – it helps to kill up to 99.99% germs and bacteria present in your water, it does not make use of any harmful chemicals, it has a really low maintenance cost especially when compared to an RO water purifier. However, some of its cons include – it can’t be considered an ideal choice when looking to remove certain dissolved harmful substances such as lead, mercury, arsenic, and fluoride which may be present in your water, it doesn’t have the capacity to purify dirty muddy water and it requires electricity to run.

Ultra Filtration (UF) – This is usually considered ideal for removing unnecessary and harmful microorganisms from your water. This has the capacity to even purify muddy water, let alone water having small microbes. The best part about this filtration method is that it does not need electricity to do its magic. Also, there is no use of hidden chemicals. In fact, if you are looking for a low-cost purification process that provides you with maximum results, then this would definitely be the option to consider.

Its low cost-effectiveness is one of the main reasons as to why it is one of the most effective purification methods preferred. Some of its pros include – it can work fine without electricity, it helps to remove harmful germs which may be present in your water, it has the capacity to purify muddy water as well as water which may be extremely turbid, it is a cheaper alternative in comparison to other water purifiers. However, it has one con, which is – it is not an ideal choice when looking to dissolve harmful chemical and metal solids such as arsenic, fluoride, and zinc which may be present in your water.

  • Reverse Osmosis Purifiers (RO) – This is one of the best purification processes when it comes to commercial water usage or water for homes. It has a semi-permeable membrane that helps to filter out all the harmful pollutants which are present in the water. Sometimes, RO filtered water tends to give a very bland or flat taste because of the reverse osmosis it follows, which might lead to the removal of certain key minerals from your water. This purifier is usually opted for if the TDS level of your water is beyond 500 ppm.
  • Thus, it acts as a TDS controller. Some of its pros include – It works to remove all the toxins which have been dissolved into the water along with other harmful and heavy chemicals and metals, it works to disinfect water by helping to remove all sorts of bacteria and viruses from the water, it is an ideal solution when looking to purify hard water, excess money won’t be needed on costly bottled water. However, some of its cons include – It doesn’t require electricity to work, it is costlier in comparison to other water purifiers, sometimes it ends up removing certain essential minerals from your water. Nonetheless, modern water purifiers come with TDS controllers attached to it, so this problem has been taken care of.

(P.S – TDS or Total Dissolved Solids are the elements that are present in your water. It can include inorganic salts as well as minute organic substances that tend to get dissolved in water. The level of TDS considered safe for human consumption is below 500 ppm. Groundwater usually has a higher TDS in comparison to surface water.)

How will you understand the quality of the water in your locality?

This is definitely one of the most important factors to keep in mind before you purchase any water purifier. What is already known to us is, there are two main types of water – hard water and soft water. It is usually seen that water which comes from an underground source is hard water whereas water which comes from rivers and lakes is soft water. Also, as we have already seen, underground water is often said to contain a higher TDS level.

Thus there are three main focus points you need to keep in mind when trying to understand the water quality of your locality.

  • When the water available at home is hard water or it comes from an underground source and is seen to have a higher TDS, always opts for an RO water purifier.
  • When the water available at home is soft water or it comes from a lake or river and has a TDS value of less than 500mg/litre, you could easily opt for a UV water purifier and it will do the job fine.
  • When the water available at home is extremely infected and has an extremely high TDS value, then you should definitely look to opt for a RO+UV water purifier.
  • Quality of the water available – If the water available at your home has a high amount of TDS and is hard as well as highly saline, then RO is the best option. However, if your water is soft and also has the TDS under control, you could opt for a purifier that has activated carbon filters in it.
  • Level or extent of contamination – Some of the contaminants which are usually present in water are – bacteria, dissolved pesticides, nitrates, as well as lead. These can cause serious health hazards, if not removed properly. If the water which is available for consumption at your home contains a higher level of microbes then it might be a good choice to opt for a UV – RO filter. The UV filter will help to irradiate the water, working to penetrate the cells of bacterias and viruses, thus ensuring that they are unable to reproduce in your water, which will eventually lead them to die out. The RO membrane will ensure that the dead particles are filtered out making the water free from all sorts of contaminants, so as to make it ideal as safe drinking water.
  • The water pressure involved – Whether you opt for a UV filter or an RO filter, good water pressure is an absolute necessity. The reason behind this is, if there isn’t a sufficient flow of water, then the filter fails to work properly. However, if your water flow is low but the quality of water is soft and free from excess impurities, then you could opt for an activated carbon filter purifier. But, if your water is brisk and hard, irrespective of the water flow, you will have to opt for either RO or UV or a combination of both. In order to increase water pressure, you could simply attach a pump to the filter.
  • Electricity consumption – As is well known, whether you opt for RO or UV, you will require a stable electricity connection for them to work properly. In case the electricity is a little erratic where you say, it would be best to opt for a carbon activated purifier.
  • Price – This is definitely one of the most important factors to consider when you buy anything for that matter, so buying a water purifier won’t be any different. When you want the best water purifiers in India, it is but obvious that you might have to shell out a little extra, but it will be worth it in the long run, because your family and you will get to consume water that will be fit for consumption. However, in case you aren’t willing to spend lavishly, you could opt for a carbon filter and then go for servicing. This will help to reduce the water filter price, but it might also require servicing a little too often.

After purchase services offered – Irrespective of which water purifier you opt for, you need to very thorough with the after-sales services which are offered. Not all companies provide you with free servicing or they are after services are quite expensive. Also, the price of a filter replacement will also have to be taken into consideration. An RO purifier is usually the most expensive one.

UV-UF is slightly less expensive but equally good. Also, there may be a certain company which might provide a better after-sales service in your locality or depends upon the brand you are opting for, in comparison to a better-known company which might not provide up to the mark after-sales service for the particular model you are opting for, depending on your location. So, be sure to check all the information provided, before settling in on the best water purifiers in India.

  • Usage – This is important to know because depending on the water intake of your family, will you opt for the best water purifiers in India. Look at the number of people who will be consuming the water, the purposes involved (whether only for drinking or any other reason), and then depending on it you could opt for higher capacity or lower capacity water purifier. Make sure that the water output in an hour should not be less than the total number of users.
  • The cost of maintenance – This is one very important factor to consider when you are looking to buy a specific water purifier. Albeit this comes under your budget, it gets a separate mention because people often tend to overlook its importance. Irrespective of how good a chosen water purifier is, it requires servicing every 3-4 months and the filter needs to be changed at least once a year. A good purifier might cost you around Rs. 2000 for maintenance – per year. An RO purifier might be a little more expensive. So, remember to keep this factor in mind too.
  • Body of the purifier – Although this may not be as important as the other factors, this is something you should definitely take into consideration too because your choice will depend on where you intend to keep the purifier, how much space it will occupy, whether it looks smart and sleek and so on.
  • The storage capacity of the water purifier – This is one very important factor to consider, especially if the place you reside in, is prone to frequent power cuts. Having a big storage capacity will ensure that even if there is a power cut, there is no water shortage at home and that no one has to go thirsty.

Having provided you with all the important and necessary factors which you are to consider before buying a water purifier, now let us look at some of the best water purifiers in India.
