Myth Busters 5 Common Water Purifier-Related Myths You Need to Stop Believing

With rising worries about water quality, more homes are turning to water purifiers for clean and safe drinking water. However, despite the abundance of information available, it is easy to become lost in a sea of myths and misconceptions concerning water purifiers.

In this article, we will debunk five common myths related to the RO water system, helping you make an informed decision when investing in a water purifier. 

Myth 1: RO water purifiers are only suitable for areas with hard water 

While it’s true that RO water systems are highly effective in removing hardness-causing minerals like calcium and magnesium, they are equally efficient in eliminating a wide range of contaminants like bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, and chemical impurities. This makes RO water purifiers proficient in purifying water from different sources, such as public supply, borewell, and tanker. For instance, the Aquaguard Blaze Insta RO+UV+TA+Hot and Ambient Water Purifier with its advanced filtration can remove Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) of up to 2000 mg/l, hardness-causing minerals like calcium and magnesium, microbes, fine suspended particles like dust, dirt, and sand, and excess chlorine and organic impurities from your water, delivering pure and clean water that is free of chemicals, dissolved salts, and hardness.  It has different filters like Chemi-block, I-filter, Aquaguard’s patented Active Copper Booster Technology, and more.  

Myth 2: Once installed, water purifiers don’t need any attention or monitoring 

Some people believe that installing a water purifier will continuously provide clean and safe water without any further attention or monitoring. However, regular monitoring and timely maintenance are crucial for the effective functioning of a water purifier. It is essential to keep track of the filter replacement schedule, check for any changes in water taste or odor, and address any potential issues promptly. Neglecting these aspects can lead to decreased efficiency and compromised water quality.

The Aquaguard Eden RO+UV+MTDS+SS Water Purifier comes with a smart LED indicator that alerts you in case of service reminders, end-of-life cartridges, filter life warnings, and electronic errors, enabling you to schedule a water purifier service. 

Myth 3: RO water systems strip away essential minerals from water

RO water systems are designed to remove impurities from water, including harmful contaminants and excessive mineral content. However, this does not mean that all essential minerals are stripped away. For example, Aquaguard Glory RO+UV+MTDS+Alkaline+SS Water Purifier comes with Aquaguard’s patented Active Copper Booster Technology that infuses the right amount of copper into your water. 

Myth 4: Boiling water is just as effective as using a water purifier

While boiling water is a traditional method of killing bacteria and viruses, it is not as comprehensive as using a water purifier. Boiling water does not remove heavy metals, chemicals, or dissolved impurities present in the water. Moreover, recontamination can occur if the water is not stored properly after boiling. 

On the other hand, a RO water purifier effectively removes a wide range of contaminants, providing safer and cleaner drinking water.

Myth 5: Maintaining a water purifier is expensive 

Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the optimal performance of your water purifier. Most water purifiers require periodic filter replacements, which can be done easily with a technician’s assistance. 

The frequency and cost of filter replacements depend on your water usage and the quality of the input water. Moreover, Aquaguard offers affordable and Genuine AMC plans ensuring a hassle-free experience for the user. Aquaguard Genuine AMC plan starts at Rs. 599 per year. 

Summing Up

Aquaguard’s water purifiers are an excellent choice for ensuring access to clean and safe drinking water. By debunking the myths surrounding water purifiers, you can make an informed decision and invest in a system that caters to your needs. Also, remember that the water purifier price should not be the sole determining factor; consider the features, efficiency, and maintenance requirements before making your purchase.
