March 22nd is a special occasion synonymous with World Water Day. An initiative to raise awareness about water conservation and sanitation. It is an annual United Nations (UN) observance with an aim to inspire action towards Sustainable Goals 6: Water and sanitation for all.
The theme for World Water Day 2022 is “Groundwater – Making the invisible visible”. It is an attempt to raise awareness about the importance of groundwater in our lives. Groundwater is essential for our livelihood as it is used for drinking water supplies, sanitation systems, farming, industry and ecosystems.
In the past few years, there have been serious concerns about groundwater depletion and pollution. The water we consume has become increasingly acidic. The acidic water is a cause of major health concerns leading to heavy metal poisoning and toxicity. There is a clear emphasis on the purification of groundwater.
Purification of drinking water is important for ensuring good health. Groundwater needs to be treated with advanced purification technologies such as Reverse Osmosis (RO). The purification of groundwater ensures better quality of water and reduces its toxicity by removing heavy metals and other harmful substances.
On this World Water Day, QNET encourages its customers to understand the importance of groundwater purification. We will also learn about one of the best alkaline water purifiers from QNET for enhancing our wellness!
Groundwater contamination and its consequences on our health
Water is an essential resource for our survival. We need to protect groundwater from pollution. Groundwater pollution occurs when oils, salts and chemicals contaminate pure water. Industrial discharge and agricultural activities are the most common causes of groundwater contamination. This makes it highly unsafe for human usage. Consuming contaminated water can cause diarrhoea, cholera and dysentery. It can further result in chronic health issues.
On contamination, water also becomes highly acidic, and it is extremely harmful to our immune system. This calls for a need to purify drinking water and reduce its acidity. The acidity of water is reduced by balancing its pH level or making it alkaline. Drinking water that is slightly alkaline (pH level slightly higher than 7) is considered ideal for drinking. Let’s understand the importance of alkaline water and how a water purifier can help in improving the alkalinity?
Importance of alkaline water purifiers
Alkaline water has a pH level higher than 7. It is the opposite of acidic water, which is not good for our health in long term. Over the years, multiple claims have been made about the health benefits of alkaline water. It helps in reducing the ageing process and builds immunity to prevent health conditions.
It is particularly known for balancing the pH of the body. Our body needs to maintain healthy pH levels. It helps to build resistance against allergens and regulates the body’s temperature. Water with a pH value of around eight can reduce the effect of acids in our body and promotes a strong immune system, among a host of other benefits.
MyHomePlus KNIGHT is a unique water purifier that provides pure mineral-rich alkaline water. The technically advanced water purifier is loaded with multiple features. Here is the KNIGHT water purifier with some of its amazing features!
MyHomePlus KNIGHT – Alkaline RO Water Purifier
MyHomePlus KNIGHT is a world-class water purifier that deploys Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology for purifying water. KNIGHT has a special RO membrane that removes 90–99% of contaminants such as total dissolved solids (TDS), viruses and bacteria. It is highly effective in filtering heavy metals, bacteria, water-borne microorganisms and harmful substances.
It is fortified with the Patented In & Out Sterilisation technology. The one-of-a-kind sterilisation method ensures safe and effective purification of water. In addition, it provides sterilised water from the faucet to clean kitchen utensils and food items.
MyHomePlus KNIGHT is mainly suitable for water supply with TDS > 500.
KNIGHT also has a special Alkali Mineraliser filter that adds essential minerals. It mineralises the water with the right amount of Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium to provide healthy alkaline water. Generally, water purifiers tend to remove all-natural minerals available in the water. KNIGHT, on the other, restores essential minerals in the water, making it a great water healthifier!
Overall, it is the perfect water purifier that merges purification and sterilisation to provide a 2-in-1 advantage!
The Patented In & Out Sterilisation Technology
The Patented In & Out Sterilisation is a unique feature that ensures complete sterilisation of the water purifier. KNIGHT goes through an in-tank UV radiation process that sterilises water microbes. The internal sterilisation takes place for a duration of 90 minutes, once every four and a half hours.
The external sterilisation includes a detachable faucet and tray for convenience. The water purifier releases water suitable for sterilising fruits, veggies and pet supplies. Overall, it is an ergonomic solution for availing pure drinking water with the benefit of complete sterilisation.
