Like most customer products water purifiers can be combined into different kinds of purifies to form a more modernised multipurpose purifiers. The following are multi stage home purifies and how they work;
- The first stage of a combined water purifier the use of a sediment filter to get rid of the big solid particles such as mud and dirt. The filter has small pore holes that can block when being used to filter water that has larger particles but luckily the cartridge can be cleaned and rinsed swiftly with water and can be reused overtime.
- The second stage is the more fine sediment filter that has smallest pore wholes that remove the larger germs such as parasites. These filters are much more efficient and they also remove microbes from the water. The only problem is that these very small size pore water filters that they require too much water pressure to work properly. Without enough pressure, process with be very very slow.
- The stage is the activated carbon water filter which is an activated carbon block cartridge element. This filter purifier takes away the toxic organic chemicals such as pesticides. The down side this water filter is that it doesn’t have enough space to hold up all the chemicals so you have ensure that you change it regularly. The other down side is that it has too many qualities that are unnecessary and inefficient.
- Then we move on to the germ killing device which is the fourth stage. To achieve this usually a UV water purifier which has UV light to kill any remaining germs in the water. Other purifiers don’t use the UV water process but rather the use the method of passing the water through special media which release chlorine, or through media with nano-silver particles.
Please note that the above stages of filtration can be used as a combination or they can be used separately and they can still achieve the same results either way. Just that when you combine then you have to use different media stacked under each other so that the water can flow fluently.
The other thing is that you have consider making sure that your purifier has replaceable filters so that you can be able to DIY when the filters are blocked because the more particles are being removed the more slow the filter will become because of the blockage and eventually it will be full and will stop working. But once they are replaced then they will do the work just as they were designed to.
