What are the causes of water contamination in India?
How contaminated is the water in India?
How much water is generated everyday?
What is the pesticide consumption in India?
Does agriculture have harmful effluents?
Over 26,000 million litres of wate water gets generated every day by a population of over 20 crores residing in 900 cities and towns across India.
Out of this huge quantity of waste water only about 6,000 mld(million litres per day) is treated and the balance 20,000 mld of waste water gets released without any treatment causing alarming levels of pollution in water.
If we add this up with another 50,000 polluting industries in India contributing around 5,000 mld of untreated waste water, then the problem gets further aggravated.
Domestic sewage is the major source of pollution of surface water, contributing harmful pathogens, the main cause of water borne diseases
Apart from this, the annual pesticides consumption is about 1,00,000 tonnes in India. This indirectly contributes to contamination of ground water.
Over and above, the agricultural run‐off and industrial effluents contribute to excessive nutrients in water bodies thereby contaminating water in these water bodies

How does UV Purifier work?
What is the process of a UV purifier?
Does UV purifier require running water?
Which is the best UV purifier?
Where is UV purifier best suited for?
In an UV water purifier, a lamp is used to generate UV rays like those produced by the sun. When tap water enters the UV Purifier, it is exposed to Ultra Violet radiation. The UV radiation helps in destroying almost 100% of the harmful micro-organisms present in the water by changing their cell structure.
Though UV radiation helps in destroying almost 100% of the harmful micro-organisms present, it cannot remove harmful salts, chemicals or heavy metals present in water or change the taste, smell or the pH balance of water.
Hence most UV Purifiers combine UV technology with Activated Carbon to remove harmful salts, chemicals and other dissolved impurities present in water.
The UV Water Purifiers are best suited for areas where the water is not “hard”.
One important point to be noted here is that, UV Purifiers work on electricity and require running water. They also require timely servicing to ensure that the UV bulb and filters if any, like the Activated Carbon Filters are replaced on time.
One of the best UV Purifiers available in the market today is the UV Grande which also uses a technology known as ESS.

Does scale formation happen frequently?
If the water you use at your home leaves a white residue in your basins and sinks or leaves stain marks on the sanitary fittings or clogs the shower heads or if your clothes look dirty and stiff after washing then the water you are consuming might be a hard water.
Hard water is water that has a high content of calcium and magnesium salts. These salts form deposits in the pipes and appliances commonly called a scale.
Scale formation causes the utensils, appliances, fittings at your home look dirty and at the same time can harm these appliances by decreasing their life by several years while also inflating the power bills. Scale formation in the geysers or kettles can increase the time it would normally take to heat water.
Hard water is found across all regions here in India. If the concentration of calcium and magnesium salts are at 4 grains per gallon water is stated to be mildly hard, at 7 grains per gallon it is considered hard and at 10 grams per gallon water is considered to be very hard.
Water softeners like Auto Softeners can be used to reduce the hardness of water. The water softeners use ion-exchange resins in which the calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged for sodium ions.
The benefits of using a Auto Softener are plenty including the ones listed below:
– Helps skin feel softer, Hair softer and shinier
– Clothes look stainfree
– Utensils and ceramicwares look sparkling
– Prevents corrosion of plumbing fixtures and appliances
– Reduces soap and detergent use
– Reduces electricity costs
