If you are looking for a water purifier under 10,000 Rupees, you are in the right place.
The choice of a water purifier depends on the TDS levels in your water source. You can easily measure the TDS in your water source using a TDS meter.
If the TDS levels in your water source are more than 300 ppm, you can opt for an RO Water Purifier. If the TDS levels are less than 300 ppm, you can simply buy a UV UF water purifier. The maintenance cost for UV UF water purifiers is low.
If your groundwater contains harmful minerals like Arsenic, lead, or cadmium, make sure you install a water purifier that comes with 100% RO Purification.
We have reviewed RO, UV, and UF water purifiers from top brands; please have a look.

2. Sure From Aquaguard Delight NXT
Aquaguard Sure is one of the best-selling water purifiers in India because it offers RO purification at a budget price.
MTDS Controller is one of the key features of this model. You can ask the water purifier technician to set the TDS according to your wish.
Unlike Pureit and Livpure models mentioned above, this Aquaguard does not offer 100% RO purification. This means some water skips the RO chamber and passes directly to the UF and UV chambers. This is done to maintain the TDS levels in the water.
This MTDS or TDS Controller mechanism is also good but is not recommended if the groundwater contains toxic chemicals like Arsenic, Cadmium, or lead.
This RO water purifier is compact and does not occupy much space in the kitchen. We suggest you install this model near the kitchen sink. Also, you can easily collect the drain water in a 10L Water Can and use the reject water for cleaning dishes or mopping the floor.

This 7-liter Pureit RO is suitable for all kinds of water sources like Borewell, tankers, and Municipal water. According to WHO or BIS, water having TDS levels below 500 ppm is safe.

To maintain the water taste, minerals are added at the end of the purification process. This gives water a good taste, and the TDS levels in the drinking water will be in the range of 100 to 150 ppm.
The absence of the UV bulb is how this model differs from the Pureit and Livpure models. Even though there is no UV bulb, the UF Membrane is capable of eliminating microbes from the water. UV bulb is normally added to provide extra protection. Just make sure you don’t use the water tank if you do not use the water for more than 2 days.
