1. Nasaka Tulip N1 RO+UF+ORPH, 8L
Nasakaa is a Japanese brand owned by Okaya Power group which also owns the famous Microtek inverter brand. It is predominantly a battery manufacturer but also produces water purifiers. This is a fairly unknown brand in India but is a good performer. Hence, we have included this brand in our list.
2. Havells Plastic UV Plus UF, 8L
Havells introduced its line of water purifiers just few months ago and they are already garnering good reviews from customers. Havells introduced 5 RO+UV models and one UV model under its water purifier line. It boasts of enhanced features such as adding trace minerals, adjusts pH and revitalizes water molecules. It performs these through additional cartridges besides carbon and sediment filters.
3. Kent Maxx UV+UF, 7L
Kent is undoubtedly the market leader when it comes to water purifiers but competition is heating up with bigger brands entering the turf. They have a wide range of products at all price points. Kent Grand Plus supports all types of water sources. Kent deploys an in-built patented TDS controller unlike most other brands where it is found outside. This means that no manual back flush is necessary.
4. Livpure Glo RO+UV+Mineralizer, 7L
LivPure is a well known brand with a wide range of water purifiers. The RO water purifiers come with different storage sizes and stages of purification. Some of the models are equipped with taste enhancer or mineralizer. Livpure models are typically suited for wall mounting.
5. Blue Star Aristo RO+UV AR3BLAM01, 7L
Blue Star traditionally an Air Con company also made its foray into the water purifier segment. It has 9 products under its belt, some of them with RO+UV and some of them without UV. The price ranges from Rs 9K to -hold your breath- Rs 46K. All the models come with Aqua Taste Booster.
The water purifiers under Rs 10,000 segment is best suited if you are under tight budget. Some brands manage to provide both RO+UV at this price point, while some brands either provide only RO or only UV.
Kent is the market leader and if you are confused about various options, you can go with Kent. I would also highly recommend Havells which was launched in early 2018.
Nasaka is not well known brand but also makes the cut due to good product quality. If you are still confused, please drop a comment. I will be happy to take a look.
