Kent Pearl Water Purifier Review
on December 23, 2015
Kent’s Pearl water purifier uses advanced patented KENT technology that provides double purification by RO+UV+UF. This water purifier can be either installed on the wall or it can be also placed on your kitchen counter. This is mostly useful for the homes having hard water from water bores. If you have tap water coming, you can still use this, but it is an overkill (as RO will not get used as much because the water is already soft).
The RO process does the initial purification by RO membrane having porosity of 0.0001 microns reduces dissolved impurities (hard salts, heavy metals etc). Then additional purification by UV makes sure complete protection against bacteria & viruses in water. Later, the intelligent TDS controller maintains essential natural minerals, thereby providing 100% pure, safe & tasty drinking water, which is ideal for consumption.Its inbuilt auto-flush system washes RO membrane surface on periodic intervals to remove the salt deposits, thus increasing the efficiency of the RO system and increasing its life. Auto flush system is not available in most of the other RO+UV water purifiers. Apart from this, the tank can be separated easily for cleaning.

Kent Pearl Cons
- Poor rating on service
The main problem of Kent Pearl RO+UV water purifier is the service from Kent. Kent like other companies, has outsourced the maintenance. The service quality offered by them is of not of great quality. You can check the consumer complaints on Mouthshut.
- High maintenance cost
This is true for most of the RO+UV water purifiers though. You need to replace sediment filter, activated carbon & post carbon filter when the alarm is audible or every 2 months. You also need to replace the RO membrane & UV lamp once in a year.
- It needs electricity all the time
It needs electricity to function. So, if you are in frequent power cut zone, avoid any RO water purifier. At the same time, you don't need electricity for dispensing water.
