Popular Zero B Water Purifiers
Currently, one of the most popular Zero B models is the Suraksha Plus. This water purifier can fit on most types of water coolers. The Suraksha Plus uses a 4-stage filter purification process that can eliminate viruses and bacteria. The filter system also provides energized water that can pick up and remove toxic material from our bodies more effectively than regular tap water.
The Suraksha Plus includes a hand-size meter that can read the total dissolved solids (TDS). TDS is a measurement of all of the organic and inorganic materials that are contained in a liquid.
First, the electrode on the end of the meter will read the amount of ions inside the water. Second, it will translate the amount of ions from the number of parts per million to a whole number that is displayed on the meter.
The Suraksha Plus is one of the newest Zero B models. It works well for small offices, medical clinics or for most families. The water purifier has a very efficient and effective 5-stage process of purification. Other advantages include:
- No boiling necessary.
- Stores 15 liters of clean water.
- Filter dome is simple to clean.
- Filter dome lasts for a long time.
How Does The Suraksha Plus Work?
Basically, the Suraksha Plus 5-stage filter system operates like the process of reverse osmosis. The Suraksha water purifier cleans the water as the water passes through activated carbon and de-ionizing (DI) resin materials.
