Reasons to Buy The Kent Pearl 8-Litre Mineral RO+UV+UF Water Purifier

Thorough purification process: This purifier combines RO purifiers, UV purifiers and UF purifiers into one unit for maximum purification. It can easily remove impurities such as rust, fluorides, pesticides, and arsenic. In addition, the system eliminates disease-causing organisms such as bacteria and viruses, which make the water safe for consumption.

Water-saving technology: Another aspect of this model is water-saving technology. It ensures there’s no wastage at all. The booster pump recirculates the water to the overhead tank, which minimises the loss of water as purification occurs. This is especially good, as it’s just as important to save water as it is to purify.

TDS control system: With the popular TDS control mechanism, you can always get the right amount of minerals in your water. Another benefit you’ll get from having the controller is that you can ensure that your water always has a healthy pH level.

Wall-mounted profile: You’ll love the design of this water purifier since you can mount it on the wall. With an overall dimension of 38 x 33 x 46.5 cm, it’s a good choice for use at home since it features a compact design that will look good on your walls. In addition, the storage tank is detachable, and you can remove it for a quick clean up.

20 litres/hour purification capacity: The purifier offers to purify water at an incredible rate of 20 litres/hour so that your family doesn’t miss the supply of purified water.

8-litre storage tank: The tank has an eight-litre storage capacity, and this means it can support the needs of an average Indian family.

Free Installation: The company has an after-sales service and installs the model within 24 to 36 hours after delivery. There are no charges for installation; however, you will incur extra costs for the pre-filter, PRV, extra pipe, and accessories.

One-year warranty: This water purifier comes with a one-year warranty and three years of free service.

Some Details On The Issues

Not Good For Insect Infested Areas: There’s a flaw with the design of this purifier. Though it looks attractive, it isn’t very practical. The water tank’s lid has a little gap through which insects can go through and ruin the water. We’ve noticed that not all models have this issue, but you should be safe if you keep the area around the purifier clean and clear.

Uses A Timed Filter Alarm: While general maintenance is already expensive, you have to specifically keep an eye on the filters. This purifier uses a time-based alert, which will only ring after every 9 months or so. Some of the other water purifiers we’ve reviewed are better off in this regard- they’ll alert you as soon as the filter needs changing or cleaning, regardless of how soon that needs to be done after installation.
