Based on the over­all test find­ings, DJB Jal is the top per­former. Next in rank­ing is Aqua­fina.

DJB Jal is also the value-for-money brand.

Bis­leri, Kin­ley and Pure Drop did not meet the mi­cro­bi­o­log­i­cal re­quire­ments spec­i­fied by In­dian Stan­dard and are there­fore not rec­om­mended for con­sump­tion. To­tal vi­able colony count (of bac­te­ria) was found to be high in all three brands.

Pseu­domonas aerug­i­nosa was de­tected in Pure Drop. This brand was also found to con­tain yeast and mould.

None of the brands was found sur­pass­ing the max­i­mum per­mis­si­ble limit for var­i­ous min­er­als, toxic sub­stances and resid­ual pes­ti­cides.

In phys­i­cal tests (colour, TDS, tur­bid­ity, pH), all brands met the re­quire­ment set by In­dian Stan­dard.
