Kent Grand Plus Review
Prior to plunging into the review as such, let us look at the various stages of filtration and purification of Kent Grand Plus RO+UV+UF Water Purifier. This will give you a clear idea of the working of the system.
This is the first line of defense for almost all water purifiers available in the market today. This filter ensures that the physical particles and suspended solids are trapped, thus preventing them from entering the main filtration process.
This makes the job of the water purifier very easy. Usually, you find the sediment filters as a separate attachment placed between the water purifier and the main water inlet.
Activated Carbon Filters
The sediment filter does its job of eliminating the bigger and visible impurities. However, the water is not fit for consumption at this stage.
It contains various organic impurities, chlorine, and has an unpleasant odour as well. The activated carbon filters have the responsibility of filtering out these unwanted impurities. The result is a much-purified form of water.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) Filtration
This filtration technique makes use of the UF membrane to trap the macromolecules and eliminate it thereby making the water purer. Remember, the pore size of the UF membrane is very small. This helps in eliminating the invisible impurities as well.
In addition, these pores can trap the bacteria and cysts that manage to evade the RO filtration process. This makes the resultant pure water healthier for consumption.
We have seen during the RO filtration that the system removes some essential minerals. The TDS controller is an additional device that restores these lost minerals to the water. This helps in enhancing the quality and taste of the water.
The water that comes out after the various stages of filtration is pure, but it can still contain some bacteria and microorganisms that manage to evade detection. The next stage of filtration, UV Filtration makes use of a UV lamp to destroy these bacteria and viruses thereby ensuring the absolute purity of water.
Post carbon filter
Somewhere during the filtration process, the water loses its flavour and taste. The Post Carbon filter has the responsibility of enhancing the taste of water. Thus you get 100% pure and delicious water that can prevent the spread of waterborne diseases as mentioned above.
