    Purification Process

    UV Technology

    This technology uses ultra violet rays to boil and purify the water. The water thus derived is safe and made free from all disease-causing micro organisms. The water treated by UV technology has all the benefits of boiling water for 20 minutes in less than a minute. Moreover it also rules out the possibility of recontamination, which always exists while cooling and handling, when boiling water manually.

    UV technology treats water in 3 stages.
    • First being filtration of suspended particles like dust, rust and mud up to 5 microns.
    • In the next stage the technology enables itself to absorb organic impurities, foul smell & taste, lead, pesticides and VOCs.
    • Later in the third and final stage, the ultra violet rays deactivate bacteria, virus, protozoa including cyst and other disease-causing micro-organisms.
    • The entire purification process is natural and free from chemicals and also retains the natural taste of water and all essential minerals required, making the water consumable.
    How does UV technology work?

    ** This video is for representation purposes to explain the working of UV purification process. Individual products may have different purification stages.

    How is drinking water unsafe?+

    Most waterborne diseases are caused by the presence of bacteria and virus in water.

    • Bacteria Causes: gastro-enteritis, typhoid, cholera, paratyphoid, dysentery and diarrhoea.
    • Virus Causes: polio, dysentery, gastro-enteritis, and diarrhoea.

    In addition, worm infestations are commonly caused through contaminated water.

    Has the quality of water changed over the years? What are new age contaminants?+

    Most waterborne diseases are caused by the presence of bacteria and virus in water.

    The water quality in our country has changed over the past couple of years because of rapid urbanization and unchecked industrialization.

    Why is it said that boiling water is not enough to purify it?+

    Boiling water only helps you remove the physical impurities that are present in water. That too, only if you boil the water for 20 minutes or more. It doesn’t tackle the chemical impurities that are present. On the contrary boiling water has shown to increase the chemical impurities that are present in water like nitrates and pesticides. It also removes dissolved oxygen from water which your body needs to aid digestion.

    How do I know which water purifier I need for my office/home?+

    Before you buy a purifier you need to get your water tested to find out what water condition you are faced with. Once you get the results you can pick a purifier that is equipped with the right technology to treat your water.

    During monsoon season, the outbreak of water borne diseases is very common, why?+

    During the rains, sewage water mixes with drinking water sources and the distribution systems. It contaminates the water with pathogens that cause water borne disease like cholera, typhoid, paratyphoid, jaundice, diarrhoea, gastroenteritis, dysentery etc.

    During monsoon season, corporation water is slightly coloured and smells of Chlorine. Why?+

    During rainy season, the run-off rainwater washes off land pollutants along with eroded top soil, sewage, industrial and agricultural wastes and sediments to the river stream. These contaminants increase the bacterial load in water.

    If you use treated corporation water supplied by government authority, do you still need an Aquaguard?+

    The corporation water is not purified, but only treated. In most of the cases, water is treated or chlorinated using bleaching powder. Chlorination does not completely remove the impurities from water. Besides, chlorination itself contributes to making the water less potable, which means the water that reaches your kitchen, is loaded with impurities.

    Is it true that Aquaguard removes the essential minerals in water?+

    Absolutely not! Aquaguard will not reduce essential minerals from water. The specially designed Mineral Guard Technology produces electronic impulses which prevents scaling on the quartz glazz tube of the UV chamber and aids to retain the essential minerals in water.

    Do you need to boil or filter purified water again?+

    Of course not! A complete purification system is one which gives you pure and safe water. Just fill your glass and drink! Also boiling purified water will not only alter the taste of the water but also remove essential minerals and nutrients.

    How can I be sure that the water from my Aquaguard is safe?+

    We have strict quality norms at our manufacturing facilities, in fact our products are also tested at 135 reputed Indian and International Labs. Further, we offer water testing at our Water Labs (major cities) where we collect your water sample and test it at a very nominal charge.

    How long can the Aquaguard purified water be stored?+

    Aquaguard water should be stored in a cool and clean place, preferably in steel or glass containers. Avoid matkas or storage filters as they tend to breed microorganisms. For hygienic reasons, it is preferable to replace the stored water after two days.

    What is the power consumption of Aquaguard water purifiers?+

    The consumption of electricity in water purifiers is negligible compared to other electric equipments in your house. Aquaguard has a power consumption of 25 watts. It consumes 1 unit current in 40 hours, in which it can purify 4800 L of drinking water. On an average, we use 15 L of purified water per day in a house. According to this calculation, a household normally requires 7300 litres of water per year. So the electric consumption will be approximately 1.52 units per year. (Power consumption may vary slightly for different models)

    Do you have any water testing facility of your own to test the water? What is the charge?+

    Yes, we do have a water testing facility of our own in major cities called Aquachek water testing facility. We do the complete chemical and bacterial test at a nominal fee.

    How will I ensure there is service backup for Aquaguard? Do you have any dedicated service helpline?+

    We have over 1100 service centers in all major cities in India with more than 5000 trained service technicians. Ours is the largest after sales network in India. We have a dedicated service helpline which is active 24X7. The help line number is 3988 3333.
