Water is a basic necessity for life. With water bodies being subjected to various pollutants, and old and worn out distribution pipelines in towns and cities, the threat of disease is high and the need for water 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, simple care and proper maintenance is essential. The frequency of service of home water purifiers depends on the quality of water but under normal conditions, most service providers offer maintenance service once in six months for UV water purifiers & once every quarter for RO water purifiers.
Here are a few maintenance tips and tricks to improve the average lifespan of your home water purifier:
The first and foremost thing you should do to improve the lifespan is to service the home water purifier regularly. Since this means opening up the unit to access the parts inside, this is a tricky job, so better to get a technician from a reliable service provider to do it.
Basically, all residential water purifiers needless of the technology used, have various consumable components like sediment filters, carbon filters, membranes, UV lamps, and disinfection kits etc., which need to be changed periodically based on their specified life, quality of input water & usage.
1. UV lamp: The UV lamp is at the heart of disinfection and must be changed after 6000 Hours of usage. (UV lamp life is 6000 working hours)
2. Sediment filter: Average life of 6-12 months. (depends on the physical impurities like suspended matter in the water)
3. Activated carbon filter: Average life of 6 -12 months (life depends on the organic impurities in the input water & life as specified by the manufacturer in liters passed through the filter)
4. RO membrane: Average life of 1-2 years (Life of membrane is dependent on the volume of water, water quality. Design and other pre-filters used in RO system plays important role in deciding the 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 the company. If you notice an odor, color, taste in your drinking water then it may be an indication that your purifier needs maintenance.
If you are experiencing a leak with your water purifier, don’t neglect it at any cost. Get in touch with a technician and schedule a maintenance check-up. Also, make sure that the necessary steps are taken until the leak is sealed or taken care of.
