FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why the Quality of drinkng water is deteriorating?
Our water sources are increasingly getting polluted. As a result the water we get is full of impurities and not fit for drinking.River water, which is our primary source of water, gets contaminated due to various reasons such as direct disposal of sewage by municipalities, excessive discharge of industrial pollutants, use for daily chores like washing, bathing, livestock bathing, garbage disposal, etc.
Water sourced from groundwater too has deteriorated due to the excessive use of pesticides & insecticides in agriculture, which seep into the groundwater as well as get washed away into the rivers. Decreasing levels of groundwater also attracts natural contaminants present in the earth such as Arsenic, Fluoride, Lead, Heavy Metals, which make the water hard.
What types of harmful impurities are found in drinking water?
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)
Why it is essential to remove dissolved impurities from drinking water?
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.
What types of technologies are available for purifying water?
The most commonly used methods of purification are Chlorination, Boiling, Ultra filtration (UF), Ultra Violet (UV) Disinfection and Reverse Osmosis (RO) Purification.
Why Boiling alone does not make water fully safe for drinking?
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.
Why is it essential to retain minerals in RO water purifier?
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.
What should be the desired performance of a modern water purifier?
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!
What are the advantages of double purification by RO + UV/UF?
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.
