Guide to Choosing the Best Water Purifiers for Your Home

Are you considering buying a water purifier for your home? To choose the best water purifier, there are several important factors to think about before you decide to buy a water purifier.

Most of drinking water dispensers used at home right now are still using water gallons, packaged in plastic jugs. The advantage of water purifier is you can filter and be sure that the drinking water is completely safe, compared to plastic gallons that contains a variety of hazardous chemicals.

How to choose the right water purifier? There are many types of filters and technology for water purification in the market, and this might seem very confusing. No need to worry, this following guide will help you find the right water purifier for your home.

Why is it better to use a water purifier?

Drinking water that you consume every day, regardless of its source, either bottled water or tap water, can contain dangerous contaminants. Some of them are: bacteria, pesticides, fluorine, chlorine, lead, mercury, arsenic and other toxic chemicals.

Contaminants greater than 2 microns are referred to as total dissolved solids or TDS. Naturally, all water contains TDS which can include calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and up to a small amount of organic matters. TDS can occur naturally based on geographical factors or even sewage deposits. To ensure the water is safe to consume, TDS level should not exceed 500ppm.

Tap water can have TDS level ranging from 1000-3000 ppm. High TDS level in drinking water can change the taste of water and cause serious health problems. This is why water purifier is so important to filter out dangerous contaminants in drinking water, so that you and your family can get pure drinking water that are completely clean and healthy.

Different Types of Water Purification Technology, Which One Is The Right One For You?

1. Reverse Osmosis

Reverse osmosis is one of the most popular water purifying technologies, and if your home has a high TDS level, reverse osmosis is suitable for removing harmful minerals in home drinking water.

But the weakness of the reverse osmosis system is that the filter will absorb all minerals in the water, including all natural minerals contained in water. Some natural minerals are actually good for your health and help give nutrients to your body. In addition, the process of water purification using reverse osmosis also requires a very large amount of water. Nearly 50% of the amount of filtered water will be disposed together with impurities from the water. Therefore, reverse osmosis wastes a lot of water and can actually make your water bills rise!

2. Ultra Violet (UV) Technology

UV or ultraviolet ray destroys microorganisms & pathogens in water, such as E. Coli, Salmonella, and Hepatitis.

UV or ultra violet technology uses the power of UV ray to destroy microorganisms in water that can cause diseases, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae, and many other impurities that you don’t want in your family’s drinking water. It is very important in protecting children, who do not yet have perfect immunity.

UV technology is one of the filtration features used in Alva drinking water purifying products. Equipped with Firewall technology, the UV ray is positioned at the point of water discharge, destroying 99.9999% of germs, making it 100% pure every time. Alva water purifier produces the purest, freshest, coldest water in your glass.

3. Activated Carbon Filter

Activated carbon filter is very efficient in removing volatile organic chemicals, pesticides and herbicides, as well as chlorine, benzene, trihalomethane and other impurities. In addition, activated carbon filter is also useful for eliminating unpleasant odour in water, but will not eliminate natural minerals contained in water, making water healthier, clearer and full of health benefits.

4. BioCote Technology

To fully protect drinking water purifying machines from germs in the environment, Alva drinking water purifier products features BioCote anti-microbial technology on the outside and inside the machine, including on the filter canister. BioCote technology contains the active ingredient of silver ions which lines the ABS plastic-based machine parts and is useful to completely inhibit bacterial and fungal growth.

Paired with a Firewall, sophisticated carbon filtering and UV filtration in Alva water purifying machines, BioCote enhances protection in your family’s drinking water, providing clear, pure drinking water without harmful additives. BioCote can kill up to 80% of germs in 15 minutes and more than 99% of germs in 2 hours.
