As the word suggests, the machine that is used for the purification of water is known as a water purifier. Different techniques and methods are used for the purification of the water. Depending upon the purification techniques, there are five types of water purifiers. Which are given below:
- Ultraviolet (UV)
- Reverse Osmosis (RO)
- Ultrafiltration (UF)
- Sediment Filter
- Activated Carbon
Out of the various water purifiers, the Reverse osmosis system and ultraviolet water system are in limelight. RO water system uses the system of semi-permeable membranes to purify the water. Whereas, on the other hand, the Ultraviolet water system uses ultraviolet lights to kill microorganisms that are present in water.
The microorganisms like bacteria, cysts, viruses are the main parameters that can cause waterborne diseases. To avoid such diseases, UV water systems are used.
Benefits of RO water system:
- Can improve the odor and taste of the water by removing arsenic, fluoride, lead and other dissolved solids. Also, this system is helpful in eliminating deadly pathogens like bacteria, viruses, etc.
- This system is cost-effective, easy to settle (at any place), and can save your money.
Benefits of UV water system:
- Do not use any chemicals for the purification of the water. Do not remove essential minerals from the water.
- Can deliver highly purified water in bulk quantity (in gallons) within minutes. And do not consume much electricity.
Both of the water systems are a good option for the purification of the water. However, if you require purified water in bulk with low consumption of electricity, then no doubt, the UV water system is best for you.
