Best Water Purifiers in India

by | Sep 2, 2019

It’s already summer here in India and as always the problem of water scarcity lurks over our head more than ever before.

Global warming and climate change contributes to the lack of adequate groundwater and forces many of us to depend on either water from borewells or the one supplied by the authorities.

The water from both of the aforementioned sources might not be often the purest as it is and requires filtration to make it potable drinking water. This is where water purifiers play an important role.

In this article, we bring you the best five water purifiers nominally prices under Rs.15,000 available in the Indian market for you to chose from.

Without any further ado, let’s cut the chase and get started!
