1. Eureka Forbes Aquasure Smart UV Water Purifier
Eureka Forbes is a reputed brand in water purifier industry. This water purifier from Eureka Forbes is a UV Purification system which uses UV rays to kill bacteria, virus, and cysts. It does not use any chemicals so the water dispensed from it is safe to drink.
If you are wondering how it works then here is a simple explanation: There is a carbon filter with UV Lamp inside the purifier. The water goes through the carbon filter and glass tube. The carbon filter keeps bacteria at bay with the help of activated carbon that has 0.2 percent impregnated silver. It also removes color, bad taste, chlorine, metals, and dissolved gases. Then the water goes through the glass tube where UV rays kill the bacteria, virus, and cysts.
There is a Lamp Sensing Mechanism by which the purifier switches off the UV lamp automatically when not in use for 10 minutes. The Energy Save Mode saves electricity and increases the life of the lamp. The Aquasure water purifier is built on Quartz Glass Purification which means that water does not touch any metal during the purification process. It passes through a glass tube instead of a metal chamber.
The Aquasure Smart UV water purifier has a high flow rate. It dispenses 2 liters of water every minute. Plus, this water purifier comes with a voltage stabilizer that protects it from fluctuating voltage levels and damage. The UV lamp also has a sensing mechanism which observers the functioning of the UV lamp and if there are any problems, it stops dispensing water.
How to use it? Plug the water purifier into a power source and then you just need to place the glass in the holding trap and press the button.
The cartridge life of Eureka Forbes Aquasure is around 6000 liters. Which means if you consume 15-20L of water every day, you will have to replace the cartridge after a year. This Eureka Forbes Aquasure water purifier has a very good rating of 4.2 stars on Flipkart by almost 350 users. Under 7000, this is one of the best UV water purifiers available in India.

If you live in an area where TDS is high, you should not buy this water purifier.

The time-based filter change alarm notifies the user to change filters and the UV fail alarm is for alerting the user when UV lamp becomes inefficient. In both the cases, power supply to the purifier is cut off, thereby ensuring that impure water is not delivered to the user.
KENT Maxx uses high-powered 11W UV lamp instead of the standard 8W UV lamp which provides complete de-activation of harmful micro-organisms. The High-wattage lamp ensures better safety against harmful micro-organisms like bacteria and viruses.
The operation of Kent Maxx is fully automatic. It will start automatically when the water level falls below a level and then switches off when the storage tank is full. This ensures trouble free operation without the need of manual intervention.
KENT Maxx has a built-in rugged SMPS (Switching Mode power supply) instead of a power adaptor. It can handle a wide range of input AC voltage (100 – 300 Volts) which means voltage fluctuations won't impact this water purifier.
