Best UV Water Purifier in India For Year 2020

Best UV Water Purifier

Are you looking for the best UV water purifier for your home? We have done all the research for you. Check out our list of 5 best UV water purifiers in India.

Which type of water purifier is the best water purifier for India? We asked this question to a water treatment technician and here is what he said:

“As a father and a water purification technician, I often recommend UV water purifiers over RO water purifiers. UV water purifiers are an excellent way to meet our families needs for water purification. When used in conjunction with a pre-filter and post-filtration, UV light is an excellent method to purify tap water at home. Most importantly, it retains the natural PH, alkalinity and minerals in the water; making it the safest purifier water to drink.”

Is UV Water Purifier Good Enough?

Many people like to go for a RO water purifier, irrespective of whether they really need a RO or not. This is because they are simply following the trend and are not aware of the potential health effects of drinking de-mineralized water.

The problem with RO purifiers is that they waste too much of water, they are costly to maintain, and they can cause mineral deficiency in body if TDS level is not maintained properly.

 UV purifiers are the best water purifiers for 90% of the people in India. Only the remaining 10% people would need a RO water purifier to lower TDS in their water.

RO Ban – National Green Tribunal Vs RO companies

In the year 2019, National Green Tribunal ordered prohibiting the use of reverse osmosis (RO) purifiers where total dissolved solids (TDS) in water are below 500 mg per litre. RO manufacturers moved supreme court but the court refused to stay NGT ban. Instead it directed RO manufacturers association to approach the government for resolution.

Source: https://www.indiatoday.in/india/story/supreme-court-water-ro-ngt-ban-approach-centre-1621536-2019-11-22

Because RO water purifiers are not environment friendly and waste too much of water during purification process, it is therefore highly unlikely that RO Ban will be lifted until RO water purifiers become more environment friendly.

This gives us another reason to prefer a UV water purifier over a R.O. water purifier. Especially if the TDS in your water is less than 500mg/liter.

RO won’t be banned in areas where TDS in municipal water is over 500mg/liter.

Conclusion
