How to improve the average life of home water purifier ?

Water is the basic necessity for all living beings. With water bodies being subjected to various pollutants. Hence the diseases that they lead to, the need of purifiers is of vital importance. In almost every urban house, water purifiers are used to purify water and get rid of harmful contaminants. And for effective purification, proper maintenance is essential. The life of a home water purifier depends upon the kind of purifier being used (RO/ UV / GRAVITY etc.), quality of the product, water, regular maintenance,  hours & volume of water used, etc.

Basically all residential water purifiers needless of their technology used, have various consumable components like sediment filters, carbon filters, membranes, UV lamps, disinfection kits etc. which need to be changed periodically based on their specified life, quality of input water & usage.

The purifiers have a long life -around 10-15 yrs provided you regularly replace the consumable components. These durability factors may differ from user to user & company to company. (Alfaa UV has customers who are using their home water purifiers for over 20 years & are still very satisfied with its performance)

 Following is the average life of consumable components of home water purifier

  • UV lamp: 6000 Hours (UV lamp life is 6000 working hours)
  • Sediment filter: Average life of 6-12 months. (depends on the physical impurities like suspended matter in the water)
  • Activated Carbon filter: Average life of 6 -12 months (life depends on the organic impurities in the input water & life specified by the manufacturer in liters passed through the filter)
  • RO membrane: Average life of 2 years (Life of membrane is dependent on the volume of water, TDS in water. Design and other pre filters used in RO system plays important role in deciding life of RO membrane.)

This time span is variable and may depend upon company and products in the market. However it is advisable to check the filters irrespective of the life of home water purifiers mentioned by company. If you notice odour, colour, taste in your drinking water then it may be indication that your purifier needs maintenance.

Frequency of Maintenance of home water purifiers is normally once in six months for UV system & once every quarter for a RO system. A gravity storage type filter requires cartridges to be changed as & when they are clogged / when life of the kit is exhausted.

No matter how big or well-known brand you choose, maintenance of the home water purifier plays a vital role for its effectiveness.

Hence brand like Alfaa UV which is not only known for its quality but also for it’s  & dependable after sales service is gaining popularity day by day.
