I received the product recently. I will give some information about sweetness of water after a prolonged study of many years. (TDS is Total Dissolved Solids)
TDS... 20- 50 packaged drinking water
TDS... 50-100 RO water (recommended)
TDS...100-300 water tastes sweet ( no RO is required, only UV UF water filter required)
TDS...300-500 water has no taste just neutral ( no RO is required, only UV UF water filter required)
TDS...500 and above water tastes salty and its hard water (RO is required to bring down the TDS)
If you are BUDGET oriented then this UV UF filter is HIGHLY recommended. The most important part in this water filter is UF filter cartridge. This UF cartridge contains small hair like strands which are about 0.001 micron thick (thickness of a hair strand is 50-60 micron) and which filters all bacterias BUT not viruses. The viruses and the bacterias are killed or become dormant i.e the viruses can not multiply in other words they are damaged completely by the UV lamp.
In other cheap filters the UF filter is made from a tightly fitted sponge like material which does not filter bacterias but only filters suspended particles like a pre-filter cartridge. so this is the main difference between branded and other cheap filters.
All branded filters are standard but KENT is reasonable and efficient and Amazon delivers with utmost care.
KENT has made a name for itself since years BUT their after sales service is so costly and so inefficient, you can buy another new filter from a different branded company. Here there is a KENT dealer who sells refurbished filters and other cheap filters and if you ask for KENT he sells them at 30% more than what is available online and no free installation. you will have to pay a 200-500 rupees depending on how far is your home from their office.
In my opinion you BUY from amazon and install yourself by following procedures on youtube videos or ask any plumber to install it for you for 50-100rs OR contact amazon, they will send an authorized local agent for installation without any expenses. But while the agent is installing do not allow him to open the top kent cover even if its RO installation.
Thanks to amazon.
