Frequently Asked Questions

How is drinking water unsafe?
Most waterborne diseases are caused by the presence of bacteria and virus in water.
Bacteria Causes: gastro-enteritis, typhoid, cholera, paratyphoid, dysentery and diarrhoea.
Virus Causes: polio, dysentery, gastro-enteritis, and diarrhoea.
Has the quality of water changed over the years? What are new age contaminants?
The water quality in our country has changed over the past couple of years because of rapid urbanization and unchecked industrialization.
The water is not only contaminated with bacteria, virus and cysts but also has dangerous levels of pesticides and arsenic, referred to as new age contaminants.
Why is it said that boiling water is not enough to purify it?
Boiling water only helps you remove the physical impurities that are present in water. That too, only if you boil the water for 20 minutes or more. It doesn’t tackle the chemical impurities that are present. On the contrary boiling water has shown to increase the chemical impurities that are present in water like nitrates and pesticides. It also removes dissolved oxygen from water which your body needs to aid digestion.
How do I know which water purifier I need for my office/home?
Before you buy a purifier you need to get your water tested to find out what water condition you are faced with. Once you get the results you can pick a purifier that is equipped with the right technology to treat your water.
During monsoon season, the outbreak of water borne diseases is very common, why?
During the rains, sewage water mixes with drinking water sources and the distribution systems. It contaminates the water with pathogens that cause water borne disease like cholera, typhoid, paratyphoid, jaundice, diarrhoea, gastroenteritis, dysentery etc.
During monsoon season, corporation water is slightly coloured and smells of Chlorine. Why?
During rainy season, the run-off rainwater washes off land pollutants along with eroded top soil, sewage, industrial and agricultural wastes and sediments to the river stream. These contaminants increase the bacterial load in water.

Hence, more bleaching powder (more than the permissible limit) is added to the water to reduce high bacterial population. This activity triggers the formation of chlorine by-products in water.
If you use treated corporation water supplied by government authority, do you still need an Aquaberry?
The corporation water is not purified, but only treated. In most of the cases, water is treated or chlorinated using bleaching powder. Chlorination does not completely remove the impurities from water. Besides, chlorination itself contributes to making the water less potable, which means the water that reaches your kitchen, is loaded with impurities.
Is it true that Aquaberry removes the essential minerals in water?
Absolutely not! aquaberry will not reduce essential minerals from water. The specially designed Mineral Guard Technology produces electronic impulses which prevents scaling on the quartz glazz tube of the UV chamber and aids to retain the essential minerals in water.
Do you need to boil or filter purified water again?
Of course not! A complete purification system is one which gives you pure and safe water. Just fill your glass and drink! Also boiling purified water will not only alter the taste of the water but also remove essential minerals and nutrients.
How can I be sure that the water from my Aquaberry is safe?
We have strict quality norms at our manufacturing facilities, in fact our products are also tested at 135 reputed Indian and International Labs. Further, we offer water testing at our Water Labs (major cities) where we collect your water sample and test it at a very nominal charge.
How long can the aquaberry purified water be stored?
Aquaberry water should be stored in a cool and clean place, preferably in steel or glass containers. Avoid matkas or storage filters as they tend to breed microorganisms. For hygienic reasons, it is preferable to replace the stored water after two days.
Do you have any water testing facility of your own to test the water? What is the charge?
Yes, we do have a water testing facility of our own in major cities called Aquachek water testing facility. We do the complete chemical and bacterial test at a nominal fee.
