Impurities found in drinking water can be broadly classified into:
a) Suspended impurities such as mud, dust, sand, bacteria, viruses, cysts, etc
b) Dissolved impurities that become soluble in water such as-
Pesticides (commonly found in borewell water)
Arsenic & Fluoride (found in groundwell water)
Heavy Metals salts like mercury, lead, copper, cadmium (from industrial wastes)
Dissolved Impurities such as Pesticides, Rust, Heavy Metals, Arsenic, Fluoride etc. are harmful to our health. They may cause serious diseases such as cholera, hepatitis A & B, jaundice, typhoid and even cancer. They also spoil the taste of water. When these dissolved impurities are removed, the water becomes healthy as well as tasty.
The most commonly used methods of purification are Chlorination, Boiling, Ultra filtration (UF), Ultra Violet (UV) Disinfection and Reverse Osmosis (RO) Purification.
Boiling kills bacteria and viruses but does not remove harmful dissolved impurities such as Pesticides, Rust, Heavy Metals, Arsenic, Fluoride etc. Just as we cannot remove dissolved salts from water by boiling, similarly we cannot remove dissolved impurities from water by boiling.
Presence of such impurities in water may cause serious diseases such as cholera, hepatitis A & B, jaundice, typhoid and even cancer.
Natural minerals are essential for our health. In conventional RO water purifiers, these natural minerals get removed along with dissolved impurities. This makes the water mineral-less. Such water may be harmful to our health and can cause mineral deficiency in the body.
Acquaclara Mineral Plus RO water purifiers are equipped with a TDS controller, which retains essential natural minerals in the purified water.
The need of the hour is to have a purification technology which effectively removes harmful dissolved impurities such as Pesticides, Rust, Heavy Metals, Arsenic, Fluoride, etc apart from other impurities like bacteria and viruses. At the same time, the purifier should retain essential natural minerals in drinking water. It should also work efficiently over a long period of time.
Thankfully, such a purification technology is available today!
Unlike conventional water purification processes based on a single technology, Acquaclara water purifiers work through double purification by RO and UV/UF. It has the following distinct advantages:
Double purification leaves less scope for impurities to pass through.
Ensures bacteria and viruses are totally killed.
Although RO purification process removes even dissolved impurities, back-up purification by UV and UF processes makes the water 100% Safe all the time.
