Are you sure that the water you drink is completely safe and pure? Do you know if the water you drink is free of all contaminants? It most certainly is not. Your water may include toxins that are not visible to the human eye yet are lethal. It is advised that you install a water purifier based on the quality of your water to ensure that your water is clean and free of contaminants. There are several water purifiers on the market to improve the quality of your water, and you may select one based on the TDS level of your water. Let’s discuss it in detail.
Common Contaminants present in water
Depending on the amount consumed, some pollutants in drinking water may be very dangerous, while others might not. The following are some of the most common contaminants present in water:
- Bacteria and viruses
The best way to determine the quality of your water and know if it is contaminated is to get it tested. Mahendra Purifier also offers a thorough TDS checkup, as well as expert advice on the right purifier for your home through our live product demo.
Water Treatment Methods
Your water system may require different solutions based on the results of your tests. In Nepal, for example, people commonly use well water and boring water. Toxic chemicals such as arsenic, nitrate, fluoride, and others have been discovered in well and boring water, which might be extremely harmful to human health. Here, the chemical composition of water should be checked. It’s also a good idea to check the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) levels in your water, which are a measure of the total quantity of inorganic and organic substances present in water. A high number normally indicates that there are a lot of solids dissolved in your water, such as sulfates, salts, minerals, metals, and so on, and indicates that you should install a water filtration system in your house.
Here are some of the water treatment methods to improve the quality of your water at home;
- UV Water Purifiers
UV water purifiers are proven technologies capable of destroying disease-causing germs, pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and cysts in water. During the purification process, this ecologically friendly technique does not use any chemicals. A UV water purifier is made out of a UV light tube through which water is purified.
UV water purifiers are good for low TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) water as they are unable to purify water with high TDS levels.
- UF Water Purifiers
Ultrafiltration, or UF, uses hollow fibers of a membrane consisting of a thin layer of material capable of separating water and other particles present in water. When water passes over the UF membrane, suspended particulates, bacteria, and viruses stick onto, trap, and remain in the UF membrane.
Because UF does not remove chemicals present in water, it is only capable of paralyzing and eliminating germs such as bacteria and viruses in areas where chemical contamination is low.
- RO Water Purifier
Among the various types of water purifiers available on the market, RO water purifier is the most advanced and effective water purifying technology. To filter water, a RO water purifier uses a semipermeable membrane and a water pump to pressurize the raw hard water so that it may travel through the RO membrane. Dissolved solids such as arsenic, fluoride, lead, chlorine, nitrates, and sulfates are caught and trapped in the RO membrane during this process, resulting in clean and pure water.
If your water has a high TDS level or is heavily contaminated, RO water purifier will be the most effective for you. Mahendra RO water purifiers remove impurities as small as 0.0001 micron, making your water 100% pure.
- Activated Carbon Water Purifier
Activated carbon is a form of carbon that is divided into small pieces (produced from coal, coconut shell, nut shells, and wood). Most pesticides and heavy metals found in water are removed by activated carbon. These filters can also be used to remove chemicals from water that cause unpleasant odors or tastes, such as hydrogen sulfide (rotten eggs stench) or chlorine.
Last Few Words
The quality of water in your house may have a significant impact on your quality of life. Consumption of contaminated water can cause a variety of problems in terms of health. To ensure pure and safe water, it is recommended to check the quality of the water, inspect the water supply system on a regular basis, and install a water purifier.
