What Else to Know Before Purchasing a RO Water Purifier?

TDS Count of Your Water

RO water purifier is the best type of water purifier that one can buy today. It would be ineffective only if the TDS count in your water is over 2000. So, to be sure, you must know your water’s chemistry. Buy a TDS meter and test your tap water for TDS count. Based on TDS count of water at your home, choose the type of water purifier for you.

  •  If the total dissolved solids (TDS) in your water source is less than 500 milligram/litre (mg/l) and the water tastes good, then you don’t need a RO water purifier*. This is as per National Green Tribunal (NGT). Simply buy a Top UV + UF water purifier in India
  •  If total dissolved solids is between 500 mg/l to 2000 mg/l, then you should go for a RO water purifier with a TDS adjuster or mineralizer/alkaline cartridge.  
  •  If TDS is greater than 2000 – Domestic Water Purifier cannot be used. Some RO brands like Faber, may be able to handle TDS upto 2500 
  • * Note: R.O. purifier companies recommend RO Purifier for water with TDS over 200 mg/l

    When selecting a RO water purifier, make sure that it has either a mineral cartridge or a TDS controller, or both. This is very important as pure RO water without added minerals maybe harmful for your health. If you want to know whcu is better, then read our post on TDS Controller Vs Mineral Cartridge

    Installation Cost

    Most of the companies provide free installation of RO purifiers in this range. However, you should still be prepared to pay extra money based on pressure conditions at the installation point. Parts like pressure booster pump, Pressure Reducing Valve, Iron Cartridge, Sediment Filter, etc are installed based on water quality and pressure conditions. Some companies include a free sediment filter with their product but there are some others that don’t include it with the product.

    Maintenance Cost

    Pick any RO water purifier, the annual maintenance cost of water purifier is around ₹2,500 to ₹5,000. This can vary depending on the stages of purification / number of cartridges to be replaced.

    All cartridges in a RO water purifier (pre water filter cartridges, post carbon filter and mineralizer cartridge) are changed once every year. The RO membrane needs to be replaced once in every 3 to 5 years, depending on the usage of the RO water purifier. It is the costliest part and may cost your around  ₹2,500 plus the service cost/visit cost.

    Important Note:  If you want to reduce maintenance cost of your RO water purifier, then make sure to buy an under sink type water purifier. Wall mounted branded RO water purifiers do not use standard size filter cartridges, and such spare cartridges may not be available in the open market. Maintenance cost of under sink type water purifiers is almost half of the maintenance cost of wall mounted branded RO water purifiers.

    Water Consumption / Conservation

    Every RO water purifier uses lots of water and if you have a small overhead water tank, then it can make the situation worse. For every litre of input water, 300 to 400 ml of purified water is produced and 600 to 700 ml of water is thrown out by a RO water purifier. It is therefore encouraged to save the water in a container and use it for cleaning utensils, mopping, washing clothes, etc.

    Is it Safe to Drink RO Water over Long Term

    If you search the internet, you find conflicting articles on this issue. Obviously, you will feel like there is nothing more safer than a RO water if you read articles on websites of companies manufacturing or promoting these water purifiers. In some cases its possible to get a biased article published on well known websites or you may see advertisements making exaggerated claims on TV.

    But when you refer to articles from World Health Organization, National Green Tribunal India, NCBI, and other unbiased organisations, you come to know that it indeed is harmful to drink pure RO water without added minerals. Read more on this topic here: Is it safe to drink RO water? – Health risks from drinking demineralized water.


    RO water purifiers waste too much water. If this is not a problem for you, then go ahead and buy any RO water purifier we have listed above.

    Just make sure to purchase the one that comes with a good mineralizer or a TDS adjuster.
