Corporation water in any city goes through some primary purification before being released to the local water pipeline. Not all corporations, however, follow an adequate purification process. Are you sure that the water treatment plant run by your city corporation follows all the recommended standards to make unpure water usable?
Moreover, this is also possible that the water coming to your home might be getting contaminated due to leakage in the pipeline. Thus, when you are very sure the water coming to your home is safe, then pick one from these recommended water purifiers under 6000 Rupees to make it 100% pure.
Which is the best RO water purifiers under 6000 Rupees? In this article, you will read about the best-selling water purifiers of top brands Kent, Tata, and others. They are currently top-recommended options in 5000 to 6000 Rupees price range. The suggested water purifiers are an excellent solution when the water source is from the local municipal corporation.
► Nexqua RO + UV + UF + 3000 PPM TDS Water Purifier
Currently, in five to six thousand Rupees range, the two best-selling RO water purifiers are from the brand Nexqua and Konvio Neer. Interestingly the water purifier machine of both the brands is similar to each other in terms of design, features, performance, and functions. Also, levels on them are the same. How this is possible?
Yes, this is possible! Water purifier brands such as Nexqua and Konvio Neer do not design and manufacture water purifier. They either buy fully assembled or required components to assemble water purifier units from the local or international market. That is why this type of brand does not exist very long in the market. So, buying water purifiers from these no-name brands are risky.
I am yes not saying that their water purifier machines are of poor quality. I am only saying that you do not expect warranty commitment to be fulfilled such no-name brands.
Apparently, the annual maintenance cost of such low-cost water purifiers is close to 5000 Rupees. While their current market price (for the whole unit) is 5500 Rupees. This means you will have to buy a new unit in 12 to 18 months.
Still, no issue. However, your trouble will begin when the machine or its one or all filters fail before they complete their expected life. You will have to spend good money on getting your water purifier fixed. Because by that time, your water purifier brand would have been disappeared and reappeared again with a new name.

► Tata Swach Viva Silver UV+UF Water Purifier
Indian pride the Tata entered the purifier market late. However, when it did everyone appreciated movie initiatives by the range of water purifiers. Tata moved with a plan that every household, no matter what income group it represents, should be able to drink clean and safe water.
It launched many low-cost purifiers that were able to clean water without the need of electricity. But when you want a filter that can remove the dissolved minerals and bacteria from the water, then you will have to get a purifier that uses electricity. This is what made Tata launch the Viva Silver UV+UF Wall Mounted Water Purifier at a price tag of 6999 INR.
Design: Sorry for those has been planning to put this purifier in a counter top position as it can only be mounted on a wall. But that does not mean it will look ugly, in fact, the design that it features and the color that it wears make it look premium. It is only 240 mm thick so it would not take much space in your kitchen or anywhere else you want to mount it.
4-Stage Purification Process: The four purification stages might sound too low, but they are not because they are effective. The first stage removes all the visible and suspended particles from the water. The second stage removes dissolved chemicals and gases making the water clean and odorless. The third stage deactivates almost all the bacteria and cysts present in the water using UV rays. The last stage is of UF (Ultra Filtration) that removes everything that the earlier stages were not able to remove. But do not get frightened as the minerals that are important for your body will not get removed.
Also, the “Silver Action Inside” technology that Tata teases prolong the cartridge life as well as improves its effectiveness.
The Tata Viva Silver UV+UF Water Purifier can filter about 30 liters of water every hour. However, the six liters of storage tank might give you a little hassle. Once the tank gets filled with water to its capacity the auto-off feature stops the purification process automatically.
The easy to read panel at the front contains all the information related to the different parts of the purifier like status of UV lamp and life of the UF membrane.

► Kent Ultra UV Water Purifier
We see many ads on TV featuring Kent purifiers. In fact, Kent is ahead of any other purifier brand when it comes to advertising its products. It offers a wide range of home water purifiers that come at various prices. For a budget customer and want a low-cost purifier with UV system, the Kent Ultra UV Water Purifier might suitable under the 7000 rupees budget. However, you will have to read the full review before you take any decision. The official Kent website is selling this purifier for the price of 6000 INR, but you can buy it from online shopping websites at 5170 rupees.
Design: You will not get much impressed with the design of this product. It features a transparent body in the form of wall-mounted fitting. Since it is usable by mounting on a wall so be sure to decide a wall to sacrifice before making a purchase. The total capacity of the storage tank is only seven Liters. Although the design is not that ergonomic, but the non-breakable ABS body ensures a long durability. The push-fit components used in the purifier do not allow any kind of leakage.
3-Stage Water Purification: The Kent Ultra UV Water Purifier comes with a three-stage purification technology. Sediment filter removes all the visible and suspended sediments from the water. Activated carbon filter removes about 99 percent of dissolved compounds and chemicals from water. And, the UV filter deactivates all the bacteria and cysts present in the water.
11W UV Lamp is powerful for killing almost all the bacteria from water. There is a UV fail alarm, notifies if the UV lamp stops working. However, the lack of other alarms and auto-cut feature are something that should have been included in this purifier.
The purifier may not be able to purify water with high level of dissolved impurities as it is only based on the UV technology. This purifier is recommended if drinking water is from a local pipeline. I will not praise the Kent Ultra if you get water from a bore well or some other source.
The purifier requires installation by Kent Technician. In general, buyers have to wait for about 2-3 days for a service engineer from the manufacturer.
Purification Speed: The Kent Ultra UV Water Purifier can filter about 1 Liter of water every minute, which gives it a filtration capacity of 60L/hour. The purifier also features a built-in SMPS that supports a wide range of power input, to be precise 100-300 Volts. This reduces any risk of damage because of power fluctuations.
