Every 6 months, lubricant and engine oil need to be changed. They are the lifeline of vehicles. Similarly, the filter of RO Water Purifier needs to be changed on a regular basis as recommended by the manufacturer. Water is the most basic requirement of humans (human body has 70% of water), so the quality of water should always be above the standard level. With increasing pollution and contamination of water, RO purifiers have become a necessity in every house today. According to doctors too, many of the diseases are just water-borne.
Below is a time-bound checklist that an RO Machine owner should always adhere, for better water quality and longevity of RO Water Purifier.
The foremost and frequent replacement in an RO Water Purifier is that of Regular Filter. It needs to be changed regularly as specified by the manufacturer. This filter is responsible for the water filtration process. It gets contaminated with dust and dirt present in the water. If the filter is not replaced within 3 months, chances are that the water is not purified properly.
Check with Sediment and Carbon Filters
Next comes the replacement of Sediment and Carbon Filters of the RO Water Purifier. Both need to be changed within a year. Sediment filters as the name suggest helps in sedimentation of dirt and blocks them from reaching the RO membranes. If sediment filters are not replaced, dirt may pass through the membrane and affect the purification level. Carbon filter needs to be replaced as they help in maintaining the taste of water by removing chlorine and other contaminants. Without the removal of chlorine, taste and odor of the water will not be pleasant.
Keep an eye on RO Membrane
Replacement of RO Membrane is also important. RO Membrane needs to be replaced every 2 or 3 years and should not be avoided. RO Membrane is the most important part of the RO Water Purifier. As RO is a multi-stage purification process, the output quality of water after every filtration process needs to be properly checked. The replacement is not strictly time-bound as it depends on the water quality and usage of the water in the installed area. The cleanliness and hygiene of the area where RO Water Purifier is installed are also needed to be taken care of.
When replacing the filters and RO membrane, try to clean the RO tank as well simultaneously. Check if everything is working fine and there is no leakage or drippings from RO Machine, even in the outlet pipe that drains out the impurities and dirty water. Try to call professionals every time for all these replacement and maintenance related works. RO water purifier service professionals will ensure that everything is in the correct order and RO machine lasts long.
It is always advisable that AMC of RO is taken; so that in case of any drop in quality of output water, the owner can just give a call and let service professionals take care of the issue. Drink pure water and lead a healthy life!
