A water purifier is an essential appliance that you should have in your home nowadays since it gives you purified drinking water at a press of a button. It is capable of dispensing cool and hot water in case you need water for making a hot cup of coffee or just a cup of cold water.

Water purifiers now come in many varieties and models. Below are some top tips to help you choose the best water purifier for your home!

Types of Water Purifier

Before you buy a purifier that suits your needs, it is recommended that you understand the different types available in the market to avoid making mistakes.

The first thing to do is to decide whether you need an electric or non-electric water dispenser. A non-electric water purifier is a basic model without hot & cold functions that does its purpose, giving you ambient temperature purified water without any electrical consumption. If you decided to go for an electric model, your choice could vary from a freestanding to countertop, tank models to tankless models.

Tank: Storage tank models are able to help you store hot & cold water for later use and still maintain its temperatures. So even if water supply is turned off temporarily, water in the tank can get you through that period of time. However, tank models are usually bulkier and heavier, taking up more space in your home. Tank models are mostly used in offices or homes with larger families utilising it.

Tankless: These models dispense water directly from the water supply, hence the chance of secondary pollution in your water is eliminated. Tankless models like our Ruhens V Series, have multi-functional hot and cold capabilities, on top of that, the V Series allows you to dispense specific temperatures at exactly 4°C, 27°C, 40°C, 60°C, 87°C. Solving all your drinking needs with just 1 water dispenser. Tankless models are more costly, however it is definitely more worth it with the convenience and capabilities it brings.

Style and Design

Depending on the interior design of your lovely home, you can choose the best water dispenser by taking these things into consideration:

Size: Water dispensers come in different sizes, measure the tabletop area you have existing, ensure that you have ample space for the water dispenser you are looking to get.
