Everyone knows that our drinking water is not as good as it was during our forefather's time! Due to climatic changes, drought, alarming levels of salinity and industrial wastes, sources like river, catchments and reservoir systems are under dire stress which deteriorates the water quality day by day. Further, one does not get sufficient water from rivers and have to resort to underground water, which generally is contaminated with dangerous dissolved impurities like arsenic, fluorides, and other heavy metals that can cause life threatening medical conditions.

By the time water reaches our tap, it gets contaminated which leads to water borne diseases. In India around 80 percent of the rural population and about 50 percent of the urban population use ground water for domestic use. Water quality issues like arsenic, salinity, nitrate iron, fluoride, and heavy metals due to geogenic and anthropogenic reasons have been reported from various parts of the country.

High arsenic content in ground water affects humans, animals, soil, and plant systems. Over one lakh deaths and 2-3 lakh of confirmed cases of illness have reported been caused by groundwater arsenic. Against this backdrop, in the last decade, RO Technology based water purifiers have emerged as a solution to all these problems. Through this path breaking technology, one can remove dangerous dissolved impurities like arsenic, fluoride, and pesticides besides removing bacteria and viruses. Over the years, some companies have evolved RO Technology further and have taken the technology to the next level.

For example, earlier, conventional RO Purifiers were used as standalone systems for removing the contaminations. But while removing the dissolved impurities, these systems would end up removing essential minerals too, which are important for our health. Today, companies are focusing on providing innovative solutions. Technology advancements and innovations have made these problems just pass. Now, we have water purifiers which have ability to retain essential minerals while purification. Revolutionary technology of RO+UV+UF+TDS controller purifies water while retaining the essential natural minerals. This technology ensures that the water becomes not only the purest, but is healthy too.
