What can go wrong with your water purifier?


With pollution levels increasing at a breakneck pace, every aspect of our life is getting infected, and water is no exception to this toxic trend. You will be surprised to know that 70% of the surface water in India is not fit for consumption. And according to WHO, contaminated water leads to over 485,000 diarrhea deaths every year.

With so much danger hovering over regular water, having a water purifier at home or office is no longer an option. Instead, it has become a necessity, which is why the world’s RO water purifier market is on the rise.

But unlike all the other appliances in the kitchen, the RO purifier needs regular maintenance and service; otherwise, it won’t purify the water as expected. And if you own one, you must know what can go wrong with it.

Here, we have outlined some common issues that one might have to face with the RO water purifier, but you don’t need to worry as these issues can be easily fixed, just like everything else in your house.

Water leakage

This is one of the most common problems, and can be easily fixed by just calling the Aquaguard customer care. While using the RO water purifier, you might notice a pool of water inside the box where the machine is located. This usually happens because of the loose connecting pipes. But there can be other issues that might lead to water leakage. Therefore, it is always an ideal approach to get the water purifier checked by professionals instead of making it a DIY project and worsening the situation.

The professional will thoroughly check the water purifier, discern the root cause, and use the right tools and methods to fix the issue.

Noisy drain or faucet

A noisy drain or faucet is something that you should never ignore as if it is left unaddressed, it can worsen with time and might result in costly repairs. This issue usually occurs when a new water purifier is installed, or the filter cartridges are changed in an existing system.

In some cases, the noise can reduce with time, and there is no need to worry, but if the noise is still there for more than a week, you can seek help from Hindware customer care and get the issue resolved.

Regular water purifier service also allows you to extend the life of your RO water purifier, and this is why getting help from professionals is always a better idea.

Degraded taste of water

The taste of water from a RO water purifier is different from the normal water, but if the taste of the water from the water purifier starts degrading, then this is something you need to take care of. You must remember that stagnant water is the source of foul odor. Besides, depleted filters and worn membranes are the main culprits behind bad water taste.

The only way to ensure that you are drinking clean water without any foul odor or bad taste is to replace the damaged component, and for this, you need to call Godrej customer care. But you don’t need to worry about the cost of such repairs as they only need replacing a single part of the water purifier.

The water purifier doesn’t turn off.

After filling the water box with purified water till the set level, the water purifier turns off automatically, and it turns on again when the water level in the water box decreases.

But in some cases, the water purifier can keep on running without any stop, which usually happens for two reasons. Only when the check valve is not working properly. The other reason, the shut-off valve isn’t closing properly.

If the membrane keeps on running all the time, it forces the system to run. This situation usually calls for assistance from professionals, and this is why you should call Aquaguard customer care without any second thoughts.

Slow water flow

During the first year of the water purifier, it would always release enough water to fill a glass. Still, if this optimal performance of the water purifier degrades with time, you can be sure there is something wrong with the purifier.

In most cases, the water purifier fills the glass halfway, and then it stops working. The main reason behind this issue is either low water pressure or low water volume. The RO purifier needs to have a pressure of at least 40 to 60 pounds per square inch or psi for optimal performance.

But even if something goes wrong with the water storage tank, it can lead to slow water flow. So, instead of doing the guesswork or waiting for the issue to resolve on its own, you should get help from Godrej customer care.

Water is the basic need of life, and you should never compromise with its quality. A good quality water purifier can keep fulfilling the need for clean water for your body, but at the same time, you need to get the common issues of the water purifier resolved at the right time. But since water purifiers are a complicated system, it always requires expert assistance.
