These sources of water can be a common carrier of various disease-causing microbiological contaminants like viruses, bacteria, fungus and parasites. These contaminants make the water unfit for consumption and may lead to several water-borne diseases like cholera, diarrhoea and typhoid.
The impurities in the water influence its flavour and even the taste of food we cook in it. A water purifier is especially recommended when the taste of water is salty, in other words when it has higher concentration of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) like sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, etc.
As per studies conducted across multiple cities to check the water quality of tap water/river water, it’s been indicated that the water is unsafe for drinking purpose as it has higher level of contaminants like Nitrates, Heavy metals, pesticides etc than permitted levels*. These heavy metals can have severe long-term health impacts and can dysfunction kidneys, liver, nervous system and even lead to diseases like cancer and lead poisoning.
water purification provides added layer of protection compared to just using UF or UV filtration technology as it can remove the minutest of the chemical contaminants which might bypass the other filtration technologies when used alone.
Drinking purified water enhances our overall health and well-being. It improves digestive health, supports kidney function, hydrates and energizes our body, improves skin and hair health along with several other benefits.
