In the usual reverse osmosis (RO) process, most minerals are lost while removing impurities and total dissolved solids (TDS). In many instance, this leads to drop in pH of water. This low pH turns water acidic, thereby harming the human body, bitter taste is first indication. Many competing brands make correction in taste with a bypass of water from RO, this exposes consumers to the risk of various chemicals and heavy metals. Havells Water Purifiers are intelligently designed to purify water through 100% RO and UV purification, maintain healthy pH levels and fortify it with necessary natural minerals through a special cartridge thus delivering safe and healthy drinking water. The double UV purification ensures that water is kept fresh and safe at all times even during long storage of water in purifiers. Revitalizer in these purifiers
makes water biologically active, this improves hydration and easy absorption in the body. These products have smart user interface and ‘iProtect’, a purification monitoring system that constantly monitors the purification process and ensures safe water & healthy water.
Havells water purifiers would be available across J&K in a phased manner, through its sales & distribution network. The company has also created a dedicated ecosystem for after sales service. Service technicians have been trained for the in-house developed technology and would offer service in every part of the country.
