► 7-Liter Aquaguard Enhance RO Water Purifier with UV Technology
“Every household does not have the same kind of water source” this fact has been the main idea behind Aquaguard's Enhance series water purifiers. The series lists some uniquely designed water purifiers for different needs, essentially depends 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 bacteria.
Aquaguard Enhance RO Water Purifier with UV technology from the Enhance series can easily purify water from sources like Municipal pipelines and Bore-well. It is sleek, stylish and will add to the beauty of your kitchen if you want to place it there. Let’s now jump into the essential details of this purifier to have a better overview.
Innovative Design: Either wall mount or install it safely on a table. User-friendly design and sturdy build of the Aquaguard purifier offers all possible convenience to users. Its water tank capacity is just 7 liters so it may not be sufficient enough for big families with six or more members. Like the Kent Pearl, this, too, comes with (not fully) transparent water tank – allowing users to see water level and quality.
It weighs about 8.2 KG and requires 45W of operational power. Built-in power stabilizer making it safe from fluctuating power supply.
→ This RO Purifier has multi-stage purification system
This is a reliable water purifier because of the use of Reverse Osmosis technology to remove suspended particles from water. Actually, water moves through a membrane which consists of many sheets with very small holes that block suspended particles. And, after removing suspended particles, the water is then sent to the UV section where the bacteria are killed by UV rays. This multi-layered multi-stages process ensures germ-free pure 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 even the last bacteria. Further, the UV lamp used on this purifier has a life cycle of up to 5000 burning hours. There is also a special chemical cartridge for removing residual organic impurities to revive the original taste of the water. Its silver surety technology enhances the purification efficiency and stops the growth of waterborne disease-causing bacteria.
The Aquaguard Enhance Water Purifier with RO and UV filter technology is recommended for salty and blackish water as its TDS reduction efficiency is approximately 90 percent. But remember, this Eureka Forbes purifier is able to recover only 25% of the water inflow; the rest is wasted making it less water efficient.
- Suspended particles using RO technology and making almost bacteria free using UV technology.
- 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 deliver a big change. It is energy efficient and can work with fluctuating power source.
- Aquaguard is well aware of environmental degradation that is why, on 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.
- Aquagaurd Enhance RO UV purifier is the best choice for you if the water supplay 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 (UF) 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 100%. According to authentic recent studies UF technology is the best technology for removing almost all impurities and bacteria from water. And, the good thing is that this technology doesn’t even require electricity for working.
