    General Awareness about water we consume.
    Old methods like straining water through muslin cloth, boiling is not enough for making the water safe and healthy.
    Electronic water purifier is convenient and hassle free and more better than a simple Water Filter.
    Its is also easy to install the Best water filters ; and this awareness should be made so popular and common that each and every house in India must have a water purifier in their homesw , BE it a village or any City

    I read a survey about unhealthy water in rural areas of India, it was very sad.
    The water from bore well and tube wells are directly consumed.
    They need to be treated with the best water purifier, in order to get the safe drinking water which will not only benefit the health but also avoid diseases caused by contaminated water.
