PureIt Classic 14-Litre Pros
This is most suitable for water with low bacteria, low TDS – usually from municipality water. Does not work for hard water though.
No electricity required, either for filtration or for dispensing water.
- Auto Shut Off
If you are not able to replace the filter in specific time, the filter will auto shut off filtration process and stop dispensing impure water. This ensures that your family members always drink safe water.
PureIt Classic 14-Litre Cons
- Expensive operating cost
Though the cost of the filter is less, the annual maintenance cost is on the higher side. One Germkill Kit comes for Rs. 550 and purifies 1500 liters of water. So, typically you will need about Rs 550 for 1500 litres of water. To lower the burden you can buy
other variant which costs around Rs. 1,000 for 3,000 litres of water.
- Cannot eliminate heavy metals
Pureit classic cannot eliminate Fluroide, Arsenic, Lead such kind of heavy metals and contaminations. These are heavy metals and not bacteria. Please see Pureit never advertised or mentioned that Classic can remove these. Take Pureit classic only if you are certain of no presense of these heavy metals.
You need to refill water regularly, it cannot be connected to tap directly. This is mostly true with all other gravity based purifiers though
Storage capacity is not 14 liters as advertised, the top tank storage is 9 liters and bottom tank storage for pure water is 5 liters.
Pureit classic do not work for hard water. But please see hard water is nothing but high amount of calcium and mantium. It is ok to drink hard water. Only the difference is hardness causes changes in water taste - a little sour. Pureit Classic cannot change
athestics of water. But it is minor setback only.
Review Verdict and Rating
Overall the product does what it is designed for, it removes the most of the bacteria and viruses and clean and safe water is dispensed in the output. This is one of the cheap & best in its category for purifying water with low bacteria and low TDS. The only problem is its high maintenance cost compared to others in the category e.g., Kent Gold. Our rating is 4.0 out of 5.
