Difference between electric and non electric water purifier

Difference between electric and non electric water purifiers is not only in the usage of electricity but also in the method of water purification. Electric water purifier such as RO uses pressured water passed through the RO membrane, UV water purifier uses UV radiations to kill microorganisms. Whereas non electric water purifier uses sediment filter, activated carbon, UF which catches sediment material and microorganisms.

RO water purifier uses electricity for increase water pressure. Water pressure helps to water across RO membrane to remove dissolved solids. UV water purifier uses electricity to generate UV radiation that kills contaminants, microorganisms.

Electric water purifier such as RO water purifier removes dissolved solids (TDS) makes hard water to soft water. Whereas UV based water purifier kills microorganisms. In the case of electric water purifier with a combination of RO plus UV makes water softer and free from TDS and contaminants. Overall electric water purifier removes dissolved solid, TDS and contaminants.

Non electric water purifiers works without electricity water purifiers works without electricity. They uses gravity or water pressure as power to purifying water. Non electric water purifiers such as sediment filter remove sediments, material that stick at the bottom of the water container. Activated carbon water purifier removes contaminants, organic compounds chlorine, pesticide and improves water taste and odor. But activated carbon does not remove dissolved solids. UF water purifier also does not remove dissolved solids which make water harder and salty. Non electric water purifiers do not convert hard water to soft water.

It is always advisable to go for electric water purifier. For example Pureit ultima is one of the best electric water purifier. But electric water purifiers not fits in all environments such as they need continuous water and electricity supply. Here we are furnishing some of the scenarios in which you can go for non electric water purifier.

RO water purifier
  • Don't have continuous tap water supply
  • Don't have continuous electricity supply
  • Limited budget
  • Don't have (wall mounting) installation feasibility or people who are living in rented homes & frequently moving city to city
  • For example pureit classic gravity based water purifier is one of the best non electric purifier.
