Water purifiers play a crucial role in our lives. Unfiltered water is the main cause of many health diseases. The impurities, contaminants, toxins, and minerals in it make it harmful to the human body. So it is a must to have a proper water filter in our kitchens. There are many water purifiers available in the market with different filters and different mechanisms.

There are many stages of water purification enhanced with different filtration mechanisms like RO+UV, RO+UF+UV, RO+MF+UV+UF, RO+UF, RO, carbon, ceramic or alkaline filters. The number of stages of filtration defines the efficiency of the water purifier. (RO-Reverse osmosis, UV- ultraviolet, UF-ultrafiltration, MF-membrane filtration). All these above discussed filtration mechanisms have their own advantage and improve the filtration quality.
Alkaline water purifiers are now in the trend. This purifier is meant for alkaline water which is healthy and pure water. An alkaline water filter is also known as an Ionized water filter. However are few home remedies to prepare alkaline water at home with local ingredients like baking powder, lemon, and cucumber.
Alkaline water consists of small hydrogen clusters that are easily digested by the human body. And also provides a greater quantity of energy-rich oxygen which makes your body hydrated.
Generally, water has a pH value whose range is 0-14. pH is the 'Potential of Hydrogen' i.e., the amount of hydrogen present in water. The softness and hardness of water are measured by this pH value. Water with a pH value of less than 7 is considered to be acidic, Whereas the pH value of more than 7 is considered to be basic i.e., alkaline water. Water with a pH value of equal to 7 is neutral water. For example, battery acid has a pH value of 0 and soap water has a pH value of 12.
Basically, the drinking water must have a pH value of 6-8.5. The alkaline water purifiers give you purified water with a pH value within a range of 7 to 8.5. Some filters produce a pH value of 7-10. But the higher the pH value more bitter the water taste. So it is safe to have drinking water with a pH value within a range of 6-8.5.
