majority of people use candle water filters
for clean and hygenic drinking water. But some times
the candle filters are unable to filter the disease
causing micro-organisms like bacteria and
viruses. Generally after filtration the water
loses its original taste. But, is there any alternative
to candle water filters, one which makes water total
germ-free and still retaining its original taste?
Yes! Usha Shriram, in joint venture with
Brita of Germany, has brought the Usha
Brita Waterguard, a water filter specially designed
for India with German technology.
Usha Brita Waterguard, which is made of foodgrade
plastic, has a transparent top container, giving
it an international look. Waterguard is a portable
table top system with a capacity of 20 liters and
provides a constant flow of water irrespective of
the water level in the top container. And unlike
on-line water filters, it doesn't require plumbing
It has a unique 3-stage filtering system
that leaves water absolutely clear and germ-free,
and even improves the taste. In the first stage
the water passes through a micron prefilter,
which removes suspended particles. Next, the imported
resin disinfects the filtered water from harmful
disease causing bacteria and viruses. In the final
stage, a unique Taste Cartridge, absorbs
excess chlorine, organic pollutants and
odour present in water thereby enhancing its taste.
Priced at Rs. 2850, the Waterguard is available
in all leading home appliances stores.
