Key Find­ings

Consumer Voice - - Test Report -

Based on the over­all score , Aqua­guard and Kent are the top per­form­ers. Some of the wa­ter pu­ri­fiers could not meet the spec­i­fied limit for toxic met­als like ar­senic, mer­cury and

copper. None of the brands could meet the re­quire­ment for mi­cro­bi­o­log­i­cal safety, specif­i­cally with re­gard to E.

coli and MS2 virus. Thus, none can be said to pro­vide wa­ter that is com­pletely safe for con­sump­tion. Stor­age ca­pac­ity of Aqua­guard, Pureit, Usha, Elec­trolux and Tata Swach was found to be less than

their claim. Waste wa­ter of all tested brands was found be­tween 62 per cent and 71 per cent, which was within the

pre­scribed limit.
