If you get water from Public water supply or Municipality water, you can simply install a Non-Electric water purifier and get the Safe Drinking water.
In Case, you get water from a source that contains high TDS levels, and you have to buy an RO water purifier. I have already compiled the list of Best RO + UV + TDS water purifiers.
The Best thing about the Non-Electric Water Purifiers is, the maintenance is very easy, and they can be easily installed by yourself, and there won’t be any water wastage.
List Of Best Non-Electric Water Purifiers
I have the compiled the list based on the real user reviews, the performance of the water purifier, technical specifications, robustness, and cost.
1. Whirlpool Destroyer 6-Litre Water Purifier
Whirlpool is an American Multinational manufacturer of Home Appliances, and now they recently designed a Non-Electric Water Purifier specially designed for Indian Home, and they named it Whirlpool Destroyer.
The Capacity of the Non-Electric Whirlpool water purifier is 6 liters, and the purifiers come with a Ground-Breaking EAT filter technology, and life of the EAT filter is 2200 liters.
The Easy to operate water purifier can be installed and maintained without any hassles. You don’t have to contact the service provider for installing the water purifier at your home.
Whirlpool Claims that their non-electric Destroyer can work with water levels up to 500ppm.
Some of the cheap RO Water purifiers also work with water that contains levels of dissolved salts below 500 ppm only.
The Electro Adsorption technology has the capability to retain natural minerals in the water which is not possible even in some of the Reverse Osmosis water purifiers.
EAT (Electro Adsorption Technology) offers immense power and advantages of 4 filters in one physical filter and provides 5-stage water purification.
In the first stage, the external pre-filter removes the Sand, Silica, Slit, Dirt and Dust from the input water. The Mechanical filter is the next level removes the suspended solids from water. In the later stages, the EAT filter removes the Harmful Bacteria, Virus, and Cysts.
Ion exchanges take place to the next level, and the specially activated carbon granules remove heavy metals like lead and arsenic. Dangerous chemicals like Chlorine, Pesticides will be washed away from the water in the last stage.
