3. Aquasure from Eureka Forbes 6 Litres RO+UV+MTDS Water Purifier

I suppose Eureka Forbes were among the first companies that launched water filters for home use in India. Yes, it’s one of the oldest and most reliable names in the industry as well, not only in India but across the world.  Aquasure from Aquaguard smart plus is a six-liter capacity, nicely built Ro water purifier with UV and MTDS.

Eureka Forbes Aquasure from Aquaguard

The new MTDS technology I an added advantage, especially in India where we get water from a different source that varies hugely in taste. So using this technology the taste of water can be adjusted to your like anywhere in India.

But the best feature of this water purifier that others don’t have is its smart energy saving technique. Yes, unlike other filters that keep running even after the water tank is full, this filter cuts off power as soon as the water tank is full. It helps in saving a lot of energy and keeps your electricity bill within the limit.

Let’s take a look at what it offers us:

The Good

  • Smart, energy saving
  • Efficient 230 watts
  • 6 liters water capacity with water level indicator
  • MTDS technology that lets you control the taste of water
  •  Free installation with one year warranty

The Bad

  • No filter change alarm

So, with no filter change alarm, you have to do a manual calculation according to the number of liters of purified water you used. That is a bit big deal if you are not keeping track of how much water you have been using. Rest, you can always stick to the brand name and quality.

4. Aquatec plus Advance Plus 12L RO+UV+UF+TDS Water Purifier 

Aquatec plus is relatively a new company, and probably that’s why it’s offering its new Advanced plus water filter with so many features at a meager price in the Indian market. But The best part is not the price it’s the level of TDS that it can work. Given the fact that in India we receive mostly underground water that is too salty and hard, this purifiers can handle a TDS level of 2000 which is excellent.

AQUATEC water purifier

The Aquatec plus offers perfect filtration and clean water upto 99% of germs, pesticide, chemicals and sediments removal using its useful RO technology. It has a great built with a stylish look to complement a modern kitchen and home.

But what it lacks is that there is no control over the taste of water which in India is a big deal. Taste of water is essential, and the filter lacks in ensuring the good taste of water.

With a good filter rate of 15 liters per hour this wall mounted water filter is a pocket and space saver both unless you don’t care much about the taste of water.

Pretty economical maintenance with cartridge change required one a year even when using for very hard water as well. So that’s a big relief.

So all in all a decent water filter with quality water filtration within a budget but I suppose if your pocket allows a higher variant or another screen that can manage the taste of water too can be a better choice.

When the health of your family is at stake, each decision counts. And buying a good water purifier is critical. Pure and fresh water free from any contamination will help in keeping your family healthy and disease free. Especially if you have kids at home, it is vital to decide after much research and comparing options.

While you are on the hunt to find the best water purifier for home use, you must have answers to these questions.

 Water Quality:

The quality of water is essential to determine what kind of water purifier will work best in your home. You must get the water checked at home before buying a purifier. The TDS level and water hardness will be paramount in this respect. If the water supply at your home has high TDS and is hard i.e. salt content in water is higher then opting for an RO water purifier is better. While if the water is soft and, with low TDS, a multi-level carbon filter will do the purification.

Check water contamination:

Water contains various bacteria, viruses, nitrate, dissolved pesticides and chemicals, industrial waste and suspended solids; all these contaminate the water making it harmful even dangerous to drink.  It every water purifier can remove all type of contamination. Therefore you need to check the kind of Contamination in the water supply at your home and then decide which water filter will suit your needs. If the water has high contamination going with a UV+UF+RO will be the right choice. But if contamination is only in nature of sediments and bacteria then a carbon n filter with UF will do the job well.

Storage Capacity:

Yet another critical factor to know is the storage capacity in a water filter. The water filtration and storage capacity should be able to match your daily requirements for drinking and kitchen use. The automatic purifier is one good option because in that you don’t need to do anything. As soon as the water level will go down it will automatically start filtering to fill the tank. Thus you will always have water for your needs.


Every water filter call for regular maintenance. At least once in a year, the cartridges need to be replaced. So you must check the support that will be required in a purifier before you buy it. There are some filters that will require six monthly maintenance as well. Such maintenance add to the cost of the purifier. The after sales services have to be better in this regard. If the company doesn’t provide a good after sales then there is no pony buying it.

Warranty and Certification:

Always check the certifications of the water filter you are going to buy. It will help you identify a genuine and authentic brand and quality product. Along with this, it is essential that you check for the warranty of the product.

So, after you have gathered all these information now, you are ready to compare different makes and brands in the market to make a better choice for the best water purifier for home.

Final Words

Now, this brings us to the end of reviewing products. Hopefully, till now you must have made your mind on which water purifier is the best. As for me, I use the Kent RO+UV+TDS controller at home and with my three-year-old son drinking the same water, I never had complaints from it. The customer care is good, though they take 48 hours to remind that’s their standard time. The cartridges need replacement every year since water supplied in our is very hard. Apart from that no issue as I have been using it for three years now.
