by Shivangi Gupta Appliance Advisor

If you are looking for a guide on how to buy a water purifier for your home or office, here are some tips to help you choose the right model according to the need.

Procuring a good water purifier is a necessity for every Indian household, even for those in Tier II and Tier III cities. The rise in pollution and contamination of water are major reasons for using these water purifiers. Every year, the outbreak of several waterborne diseases adds to the necessity of ensuring safe and clean drinking water. However, before you buy one, it is a good idea to read the guide shared below. Check out these factors before buying a water purifier.

Water Quality- No two cities and no two colonies receive the same water quality. The quality from the same source can also vary due to several reasons. Understanding the quality of water received will be the most important factor in helping you reach a decision. Some companies even offer free water testing facility to aid your decision.

Types- Though an RO water purifier is the most popular purifier, you should be aware of other types too. Some other models include UV water purifiers, RO+UV water purifier and gravity water purifiers. In some places, a water softener may also be required. As already stated above, understanding the contamination levels of water is essential for selecting a purifier.

Requirement- Is your family of two adults or six with children? This will determine the purification production rate of the purifier you should buy. A family of two adults may be sufficient, with a purifier that can purify 15 litres an hour and store nearly seven litres but a family of six may require a bigger and faster one. If you are buying for an office set up, you can choose one that stores 80 litres in one hour.

Budget- Make sure your budget is adequate to purchase the right purifier. There is one thing you should remember, you are buying it to keep yourself and your loved ones healthy. Check out the RO water purifier price list, but be willing to spend more. If needed, for the health of your family, spent a few extra hundreds or thousands more.

Certifications- There are many national and international agencies in the world that certify the quality of the UV or RO water purifier. Buy only certified ones. The accredited purifiers use a material of the highest quality. They will meet the minimum requirements of quality to ensure all contamination from the water is removed so that it is safe for consumption.

Company- Every brand has certain policies in place, and a reputation to protect. Some of them do their research to improve the certification requirements. The other major advantage of opting for a good company is an active pre-sales and after-sales service. They will have a customer support system to answer queries, offer you regular services and annual maintenance.

This guide is to help you get started, but your research has to be product specific. Look up for some of the best brands, and compare the specifications before reaching a final decision.
