    Havells is good in other areas but not in installation.

    Most people do not know that some brands require you to call them for installation. All this information is available but hidden in the thick Amazon jungle. Hence, we have collated all information regarding installation in a helpful handbook! 

    • ​Do you know HOW MUCH brands charge for installation? Avoid getting cheated!
    • ​Do you know HOW TO contact a brand for installation? Save valuable time​​​​​​!
    • ​Do you know WHICH BRANDS give a demo after purchase? Avoid surprises!​​​​​​

    ​6. Conclusion

    ​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.
