How to filter water with impurities?
Which filtration method is the best?
How to remove TDS in regular water?
How much level of TDS is found in home water?
Is it necessary to clean tanks regularly?
These days it is difficult to get pure, clean and safe drinking water in abandon-growing population, industrial development and environmental degradation are all causes for this. Given this situation, it is prudent for us to be aware of purification techniques and the available water purifiers in the market to ensure that our drinking water is of good quality.
There are various sources of drinking water, viz: lakes, rivers, ponds, borewells, water tankers, harvested rain water, etc.
Generally water drawn from bore-wells or those supplied by tankers is likely to have a higher concentration of TDS and other harmful chemicals such as lead, arsenic, fluride, etc. Tanks constructed to store water can also contaminate water, if not cleaned properly and from time to time.
A RO-based water purifier removes dissolved salts/impurities and chemicals from water. Therefore, if the water in our home, has high level of TDS and other impurities (more than 500 ppm, the upper limit set by the BIS), then the obvious choice would be to go for a RO-based water purifier.
