Eureka Forbes Water Purification System

Buddies, RO water purifiers by Eureka Forbes are the best. It was until I started using an RO water purification system by this company that I started relying on it. I was born and brought up in the village and we used to drink pond water without purifying it. It was only during winters that the water was boiled. But to everyone’s surprise, we never fell victims of water borne diseases except very occasionally during rainy seasons. People there are hardly ware of water purifiers, I mean the advanced systems. A counted few homes do use purifiers but those are the conventional ones such as candle filters and the like.

I started living in the city for pursuing my graduation and later a professional course. And then I never got the chance to settle in the village as I was selected in the campus itself during the last semester. It has been two years now that I share our two-room rented flat with another guy. And because we drank tap water directly, we both fell ill and it continued often. Our doctor then advised us to drink purified water. I wondered the difference between pond water in our village and the tap water in the city. Unable to find an answer why I didn’t fall ill drinking unpurified pond water, I went along with my room mate to the local electronics retail store to buy a water purification systems. The best water purifier of different brands were displayed there. And we bought the AquaSure Elegant RO.

A Healthy Life With Safe Water

To maintain a healthy life, safe water should always be consumed. The water in our area is high in TDS content besides being full of other contaminants. You can hardly notice them with the naked eye. I have read in several articles on the web and at blog forums that only a reverse osmosis system can purify the water and deem it safe water, fit for drinking. I spent my childhood and teenhood in my village. We used to drink well water after boiling it. I have also read that the water should be boiled for at least 20 minutes to kill existing germs and there are chances of recontamination even in stored boiled water. But neither the villagers nor our parents were aware of it. Water was hardly boiled for five minutes at the most. Moreover, they were also not aware of the RO water purifier.

The reverse osmosis system in India is more popular in urban areas than in rural areas. Awareness is thus the need of the hour. Thousands of deaths take place every day across the world due to water borne diseases. Amongst the many brands of the RO water purifiers, it is Eureka Forbes that sells the most. I have the AquaSure elegant RO installed at my home. I bought this RO system from a retail store after going through other RO water purifiers and after comparing prices and features.
