Do you know that chlorination has been banned in most of the developed countries in the world? Yes, it is because of the ill effects associated that it is not used in the treatment of water. But India follows this method to get the water treated, which is then supplied to homes across the town/city through pipes. And if you drink it directly from the tap you will fall victim to some disease. Use of a water purification system is a must. It can be an RO system or some other water purifier depending on the type of the H2O and pollutants present in it.
Chlorination happens with the use of bleaching powder (sodium hypochlorite/calcium hypochlorite), which is readily available; the treatment is cheap. But it does not help in the removal of all impurities. In fact, it makes the water less potable. Never be driven by the notion that you need not purify the water which is already treated. To maintain good health, consume the H2O only after getting it purified involving the use of an advanced water purification system.
You will be dazed to know about the treatment process in municipal plants involving chlorination, i.e. use of bleaching powder. A research has proven that hypochlorous acid is produced when bleaching powder reacts with water. This acid no doubt destroys the micro organisms like bacteria, virus, cysts, etc. present but at the same time dangerous trihalomethanes are produced when it reacts with organic impurities. You can well imagine the consequences of directly consuming this H2O. Before it takes a toll on your health, start using a water purifier. Get your tap H2O tested so that you know whether you need an RO system or a UV water purification system or blend mechanisms.
At times excess chlorine is used for the treatment of H2O in the municipal corporation. This reacts with ammonia producing chloramines. Do you know that both these compounds cause cancer in the long run? So, you will be only harboring cancer if you do not use an advanced water purifier.
So, you are recommended to use an RO system. Do not worry about the RO system price. Go online to find it. The more sophisticated and hi-tech the purification mechanism with innovative features, higher will be the RO system price. You will find the RO system price of a reputed brand in between the range of Rs. 7,000 to Rs. 13000.
It will not be an exaggeration if I say that RO water purifiers from the house of Eureka Forbes are all next generation systems. Most of the people in my neighborhood and most of my relatives are using RO water purifiers from this company. No wonder what I have read on web about Eureka Forbes having over 8 million users is no doubt true. The count is only increasing by the day, I must say. One of the most selling RO water purifiers from this company is Aquaguard Total RO PROTEC+. We have been using it for over two years now. My next door neighbor recently bought it dialing the Eureka Forbes customer care number – 3988 3333. He has been seeing us using it all these months. The water in our area is hard; whoever has sent sample of tap water for test at the nearest lab has got a recommendation in the test report of using reverse osmosis water purifiers. And it is Eureka Forbes that is ruling the roost here.
Aquaguard Total RO PROTEC+ is the next generation system. One of the most important features worth mentioning is incorporation of the latest 3G technology that electronically enhances the membrane life. After all, quality and life of the RO membrane matters much. During the purification process not only physical, chemical and microbiological contaminants but also tough new-age contaminants like heavy metals, pesticides, and lead get removed. It is priced at Rs. 13,990 – cheapest amid RO water purifiers of other brands.
