As a person who loves food, cooking and other things which are associated with it I am always enthusiastic to learn and understand related things. I often talk about nutritional aspects of the food we eat and I know many of you who read my blog too are concerned with health aspect of everyday food. It is heartening to see the increasing interest of people towards healthy eating in general. But, have you ever wondered “How safe is your drinking water?”. You are eating healthy, maintaining a good level of hygiene, but still, the water you are drinking is safe and healthy or not?
How many of you really wonder about the process going inside your water purifier? Havells has recently launched water purifiers and invited us to their R&D facility to explain us the science behind water purification and how Havells water purifiers are different from most water purifiers in India.
This visit to the Havells CRI lab has been a great learning experience on facts related to water safety and importance of safe and healthy drinking water.
Do You Know these water facts?
- Do you know the quality of the water used in cooking affects the taste of food?
- Do you know that RO technique purifies the water to 100% safe?
- Do you know there is a loss of minerals in RO technique of purification?
Dr. Suresh Sisodia Sr Vice President Water purification and Mr. Shashank Srivastava Vice President Havells Water Purifiers, both experts in their respective fields explained to us about various aspects that affect the safety of water from the source of origin and how unsafe it becomes till it reaches to the point of consumption, that is our homes. We also learned about various processes the water undergoes inside the water purifiers.
Dr. Sisodia explained the process of water purification in Havells purifiers using this simple diagram. Havells purifier is the first purifier brand in India with pH balance technology. To ensure the absolute safety 100% water first passes through RO membrane and then it undergoes UV purification. After this the minerals fortification is done to balance the pH the revitalizer improves the bioavailability of these minerals. Havells purifiers take care of the taste as well as makes it safe and healthy for drinking.
Vis a Vis the technique their competition uses
The Dr. Sisodia also told us that many brands offer TDS controller in RO UV purifiers and use bifurcation technique. In most of these, some amount of water passes through UF filter alongside RO. The problem with this technique is UF cartridge cannot remove harmful chemicals like lead, arsenic. Chromium, pesticide residue which are often major pollutants from the industrial waste. And towards the end, the mixing of these two types of water can defeat the whole purpose of water purification.
Havells water purifiers
It was impressive to learn all these latest technologies, but those of us who love aesthetic appeal, they are the stunner in terms of looks and functionality. They have various models to choose from depending on features in the price range of 10499-23999.
Two models with a digital interface with LED panels have modern design elements, 8 stage filtration, Auto diagnostic, iProtect monitoring to ensure safe water, cartridge level indicator so you can plan to replace the cartridge in advance.
Given the small kitchen sizes these days some of the models can be mounted in corners for the effective utilization of the space. Unique soft-touch faucet to ensure there are no unnecessary water splashes and a lid that fits in a way there is no chance of recontamination of water.
Maintenance and Service Details
In terms of maintenance and service of the water purifiers, we were told that they have a wide network of in-house trained service associates to provide hygienic care with personalized attention, unlike many other brands who depend on a franchise for services.
I feel that with these great features Havells is setting a new benchmark in water purifies in India, in terms of technology and minutes design details to ensure safe and healthy drinking water. So if you are buying a water purifier and concerned about safe and healthy drinking water I would urge you to study the features compare and then decide.
