Kent Pearl RO UV Mineral Water Purifier
People often get confused while choosing from a dozen of advanced water purifiers in India. Every brand has its own technology behind the range of drinking water purifiers that it offers.
So to make it easy for you, I will discuss about Kent’s Pearl 8 Mineral RO+UV Water Purifier in this review.
Kent’s Pearl Mineral RO+UV Water Purifier is expert of filtering water from any source. Its double purification technology not only destroys all the bacteria present in the water, it also filters out all the suspended particles. TDS controller ensures that you never drink mineral less water.
Built and Design
Kent Pearl Mineral RO+UV Water Purifier features a modular design that enables it for wall mounting or counter-top installation. The 8 liter transparent water storage tank enables user to see the water level and its quality.
The water storage tank is detachable that makes the cleaning process very simple and less messy.
Specification and Filtration technology
This purifier filters water with KENT own Mineral RO Technology that has all the benefits of normal RO filters while eliminating the limitations. It removes all the impurities from water but also makes sure that the water retains the minerals that are necessary for your body. Spin-welded housing ensures improved membrane life.
The membrane life is also improved by the inbuilt Auto-Flushing System that periodically removes salt deposits from the membrane.
The water moves through multiple chambers to ensure clean, tasty and safe water. It becomes possible by the stages of Sediment filtration, Activated Carbon filtration, Ultra filtration and Post Carbon filtration. In addition, this purifier also features an 11W UV lamp for complete deactivation of harmful micro-organisms.
These processes make this purifier suitable to purify water from sources like bore-wells, tanks and municipal pipeline.
The body of the purifier is made using ABS plastic making it non-breakable and durable at the same time. Push-fit components ensure leak-free performance that gets enhanced by the use of O-rings.
Filter Change Alarm and UV Fail Alarm in the front of the purifier notify users for any maintenance if needed. Filter Change Alarm tells if the filter needs to be changed and UV Fail Alarm starts blinking when the UV lamp becomes inefficient. Both cases trigger power cut to make sure that you do not drink impure water.
Its built-in SMPS makes your tension go away if power supply suffers frequent fluctuations. Keeping in mind the conditions in India, Kent has made this purifier to support wide range of input voltage.
In India, where houses in different regions have different sources of water, Kent Pearl Mineral RO+UV Water Purifier can make a big difference. It can purify water from any source and without removing the necessary minerals.
Kent Pearl Mineral RO+UV Water Purifier uses multiple methods to purify water such as UV, UF and Kent’s Mineral RO Technology.
Its smart TDS technology keeps monitoring the impurity level in the water and does the purification based on it. This is very helpful in delivering water with a stable level of necessary minerals.
This purifier comes with an auto-start and an auto-off feature to ensure that you don’t have to operate the product manually.
If you buy this product from Kent’s website you can get it for Rs. 16900, whereas in stores it is available for Rs 18000. It is a nice offer in my opinion.
The water tank of this purifier is not sealed properly and many customers have reported that cockroaches easily enter it.
Many customers have also reported that Customer Service that Kent provides is of very low quality. Kent has always been criticized for the poor response they give to the customers when it comes to in-warranty support.

Aquaguard Enhance RO UV Purifier
“Every household does not have the same kind of water source” this is the idea behind Aquaguard Enhance series. This series features different components for different needs that depend on the source of water. Let’s keep it simple; if water that your house gets, has more bacteria and less suspended particles, then why don’t you buy a purifier that focuses more on killing these bacteria.
Aquaguard Enhance RO+UV 7 L RO + UV Water Purifier from Aquaguard Enhance series can easily purify water from sources like Municipal pipelines and Bore-wells. It is sleek, stylish and will add to the beauty of your kitchen, if you want to place it there. Let’s go into details of this purifier to have better overview.
Aquaguard Enhance RO+UV 7 L RO + UV Water Purifier can be mounted to a wall or placed at any table in your kitchen or any other room. It features a 7 liter tank that think is not sufficient for a big family. The water tank is transparent allowing users to see the water level and its quality.
Specification and Purification Technology
Aquaguard Enhance RO+UV 7 L RO + UV Water Purifier use Reverse Osmosis technology to remove suspended particles from water. Water moves through a membrane which consists of many sheets with very small holes that block suspended particles. After removing suspended particles, the water is then sent to the UV section where the bacteria are killed by UV rays. This whole process ensures germ free clean water to be delivered from the tap.
This purifier also boils every drop of water for about 20 minutes with its unique e-boiling technology killing the last bacteria. The UV lamp has a life cycle of up to 5000 burning hours. A special chemical cartridge in the purifier removes residual organic impurities to revive the original taste of water. Its silver surety technology enhances the purification efficiency and stops the growth of waterborne disease-causing bacteria.
Aquaguard Enhance Water Purifier is recommended for salty and blackish water as its TDS reduction efficiency is approximately 90 percent.
It weighs about 8.2 KG and consumes 45W of power that makes it energy efficient. It has a built-in power stabilizer that makes it safe from fluctuating power supply. But this purifier is able to recover only 25% of water; the rest is wasted making it less water efficient.
It removes almost all suspended particles from the water and also makes it bacteria free. The 20 minutes boiling feature adds an extra layer of protection and ensures that water is free of waterborne disease-causing bacteria.
In a country like India, where most of the households depend on bore-well for their water needs, this purifier can make big change. It is energy efficient and can work with fluctuating power source.
Aquaguard is well aware of environmental degradation that is why, in this purifier, it has used the materials that can be recycled.
Today, most of the house water purifiers come with a universal approach, but Aquaguard Enhance series has taken an initiative to give people choose a purifier according to their needs.
This purifier is best for you if the water that is coming to your house has high TDS level. But if you have got a Municipal water pipeline connection, then there can be a problem. The RO technology in that case can also remove the minerals that are necessary for your body.
The lack of Ultra Filtration unit is my main concern. If you read the studies done by many Indian institutes, you will find that RO and UV technologies are just not enough to clean water in the country. These studies have suggested UF technology as the best technology that can remove almost all impurities and bacteria from water. And, the good thing is that this technology doesn’t even require electricity for it to work.

Leaupure Aquajet 14gp RO UV UF TDS Control with Alkaline Water Technology
You might not have heard of L’eaupure, but it is a brand that needs your attention. It provides a series of drinking water purifiers that have many great features and Aquajet 14gp 12 L Purifier is one of them. This purifier comes packed with all the tools that are necessary to clean water to its maximum level.
Built and Design
Aesthetically you might not like Aquajet 14gp 12 L Ro, UV, UF, TDS with Alkaline Water Purifier, but functionally it is a real giant. It is 330 x 520 mm in size and weighs 10KG. One downside is that it can only be wall mounted.
It has a filtration rate of15 L/hrand its tank has capacity to hold 12 liters of water.
Filtration and Purifier Technology
This purifier has a 14 level filtration system and these levels include Prefilter, Antiscalant, Magnetic softener, Sediment, Chlorine remover, RO, UV, UF, Alkaline, PH Adjuster and Post Silver Carbon.
The first 6 stages remove suspended particles from the water and make it smell better. The 7thstage is of Ultra Filtration, which is so efficient that it removes almost all suspended particles and bacteria from the water.
The next stage is of Reverse Osmosis, in this stage the water moves through a membrane that has the pores of only 0.0001 Micron. By this stage TDS level reduces up to 95 per cent.9th stage includes deactivation of virus and bacteria by UV sterilization.
The next five stages include alkaline purification. To understand these stages we will have to go into detail.
First the water is separated into alkaline and acidic components by a process called water ionization. The acidic water is of no use so it is wasted. The alkaline water is then sent to the next level. Alkaline water helps clean the acidic waste that our body produces.
Now some important minerals are added to water that enhance the working of our body. After adding minerals the, time is to enhance the PH level. The PH level of the water should always be above 7. Below 7, the water becomes acidic and it can cause some serious damage to human health.
Now the water is clean, pure, safe and enhanced.
Currently no other brand is offering water purifier ionizer with a RO + UV system.
One life cycle of the filters inside this product can clean up to 15000 liters of water. This purifier supports wide range of power input that keeps it undamaged even if electricity supply frequently fluctuates. Moreover, features like Over Flow protection, Auto Start, Auto Flush and UV fail alarm make sure that you don’t drink a single drop of un-purified water.
As I said it is a real giant purifier, no other brand offer purifier like this. The filtration techniques that this purifier uses to clean water like UV, RO, UF, and TDS are just awesome.
A single glass of alkaline ionized water contains millions of anti-oxidants that help functioning of the body. It super hydrates the body, supplies important minerals like sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium. It also helps to eliminate toxin and waste present in the body.
Alkaline ionized water also helps our body to fight many diseases and problems. Many people who drink this kind of water do not face the problems like gastric disorders which they were earlier facing. It also helps body to produce more insulin thereby helping diabetic patients.
The Aquajet 14gp 12 L purifier also enables users to adjust the PH level of the water.
The only problem I see is that the services of L’eaupure are limited to Bangalore only. Moreover, some people might not like the fact that this purifier can only be wall mounted.
