The effects of standard water purification technologies on dissolved oxygen, nitrogen and the inert gases are negligible. These gases will pass straight through reverse osmosis membranes, UV light, micro and ultra-filters, ion exchange resins and electrodeionisation EDI units and do not use any of the capacity of the purification media. Any minor effects due, for example, to local changes of pressure will tend to be balanced out by equilibration with the atmosphere in any storage vessel.
Feed water from municipal supplies is likely to warm as it purified in the laboratory and, as a result, the purified water is more likely to be saturated in nitrogen and oxygen. Carbon dioxide behaves very differently from the other gases in air. When it dissolves in water, it reacts to set up a series of equilibria:. A small fraction of the CO2 that dissolves in water reacts rapidly to form carbonic acid. This, in turn, partially dissociates to form hydrogen, bicarbonate and carbonate ions.

CO2 will continue to dissolve until equilibrium is reached. The situation is further complicated by the presence of carbonate and bicarbonate ions in hard natural waters. These concentrations can be relatively high, resulting in high levels of carbonic acid and dissolved CO2. In these circumstances, dissolved CO2 concentrations can be 60ppm or more. Like other gases, CO2 will pass unaltered through filters and UV treatment, however, due to its equilibrium with bicarbonate and carbonate ions, it can, in effect, be retained on anion exchange resins. As the bicarbonate and carbonate ions are removed on the resin, more CO2 will convert to bicarbonate until none remains.
With 25ppm CO2 in the feed-water over two-thirds of the capacity of the mixed-bed resins can be used up by the CO2. After purification ultrapure water within the purifier has a resistivity of As soon as this water is dispensed into a vessel in the laboratory it comes into contact with air. The oxygen and nitrogen contents do not change significantly but CO2 will rapidly be absorbed from the air; hydrogen, bicarbonate and carbonate ions will be produced and the resistivity will fall to about 1.
In normal laboratory practice this is unavoidable. The high conductance of the hydrogen ions means that this change only corresponds to a concentration of 0. This does not affect most experimentation and, with good laboratory practice, the purity of the water is otherwise unaffected. Figure 1 Degradation of pure water resistivity in contact with air. Dioxide Degassing to reduce the concentration of dissolved CO2 before ion exchange or EDI is highly desirable to increase resin pack life and ensure the effectiveness of EDI. This is best carried out in the permeate from reverse osmosis RO.
At that stage, most of the ions have been removed and the pH of the water is slightly acidic; the equilibrium concentration of C02 is reduced. For laboratory scale units hydrophobic filters are used. RO permeate flows through a bundle of microporous hollow fibers usually polypropylene and air sweep gas at reduced pressure flows past the outside of the fibers. The partial pressure of the CO2 in the air outside the fibers is much lower than in the water and so CO2 is removed from the water into the gas stream.
Turbulence within the sweep gas makes the process more efficient but with small units, complete removal of dissolved gases is not possible. Kindly recommended me all above with support of alkaline purification. The top 10 list has some water purifiers which correct the pH value alkalinity of water. Drinking unsafe water is very dangerous for health. Ultra Filtration Water purifiers can eliminate Cysts, microorganism, Bacteria and other particles found in the water.

UV Water Purifier 3. Kent grand plus …………….. Can you suggest which one is best among this four…. I am staying in a good society and believe having municipal water supply ….
Kindly suggest at the earliest. Keeping in mind your requirement and the fact that municipal water is generally low on TDS, you can go with any of the four shortlisted purifiers. That is because RO adds the required extra layer of protection to make purification full proof.
We would also recommend going with a purifier which retains essential minerals in the purified water. So that leaves us with 3 options now. I agree with you. The list also missing the Moonbow water purifiers from the well-known company Hindware. I wish to buy a purifier but TDS level in my place is ppm which quite good for a drinking water. Our place is a green campus with own tube-well but only problem is that as the water supply pipes are older so some time iron traces were found, second some time we face a problem of soil which needs back flushing of pipes.
As such water is very good and clean. Kindly suggest a purifier for us keeping in mind the taste and mineral contents. Keeping in view all the information that you have provided, the only issue that you want your purifier to tackle is suspended impurities like sand etc. Since the input water is quite good, you can go for any of the water purifiers including the entry-level gravity-based water purifiers.
Please do not choose any RO purifiers which do not maintain the level of essential minerals in the purified water. Because the input water TDS is already quite good and normal RO filter will reduce the mineral content to a very low level which is not good for our health. How about Livpure Glo Touch?

The Annual maintenance Charges are Rs per year which includes changing catridges. But there is no check on PH value and adding minerals in my present model.
Your suggestion on Havels Pro is appears good since it checks PH and adds minerals. Please comment. Havells Pro is relatively newer model and currently we do not have much information on the actual costs of maintenance. My area is covered by Municipal water supply, tds around ppm, but sometimes water are muddy and heavily treated with chlorine. The actual maintenance cost would depend on usage, however, the approximate maintenance cost of these water purifiers would be between Rs.
Livpure Glo being the most cost-efficient in terms of maintenance cost. How to maintain in house without supplier services.

Types of Water Purifier
All the RO water purifiers come with an auto cut-off feature that automatically stops the water supply when the storage tank is full. When the water level in the storage tank drops, the purifier automatically resumes the purification process and water intake. Very few sites cover such details and this is very helpful. Any suggestions how can I get my water tested before I zero upon one of the filters? A company guy can come and do it but then he would insist on buying his product.
Nevertheless, you can get it tested in any authorized lab in your city. You can also test the water yourself by using the below given techniques:. Manually inspect the water for discoloration and suspended impurities like dirt, mud, rust etc. Use a water test kit for detecting common impurities.

Thank you for your feedback. Though the information is good, but not mentioned about the maintenance cost involved in all the purifiers.
Buying a purifier is one time cost but maintaining it is a big cost which all the companies are charging either replacing different parts of purifier in every 3 months time. I am facing this problem with my Kent purifier and even taken the AMC, every time I have to pay around in every month for part change. Yes maintenance of RO purifiers is an ongoing cost. And maintenance cost for Kent is a little higher as compared to some other brands. But spending Rs. For what work or repairs are you paying all this money?
At present there is no online exchange offer on any purifier. Not many brands or online stores run exchange offers on water purifiers because of the low exchange value of the old water purifiers. Could you please suggest can I continue with the same or need to update with other Purifier. And also please suggest how to check the TDS level in water and the chlorine content in water.

Is there any benefit of buying stainless steel and airtight. As it is costlier. LG uses stainless steel water tanks while most other brands use food grade ABS plastic.
Some people claim stainless steel water tanks are more hygienic than plastic tanks. Stainless steel is much better at maintaining freshness of water and reducing the growth of bacteria and algae. Apart from that stainless steel is more durable than ABS plastic. The information I have is companies mix a small amount of untreated water in treated to increase TDS level in final water output?? Do you have some insight into how it works??
