Read This Before Getting a New Water Purifier for Your Home

Helping you find the right water purifier, one question at a time.

So you don’t like how tap water tastes. It’s also not cost-efficient to purchase mineral water by the dozens every so often. What’s the best solution then?

Enter the water purifier, for cleaner, better-tasting water. But before jumping in to buy any random model, bear in mind that they each have their own set of specifications and selling points – which is why some pre-purchase research is still necessary.

To select the most suitable water purifier for your home, ask yourself these questions first:

1. What filtration features does this water purifier have?

The filtration features are, of course, the main reason why you would consider getting a water purifier in the first place. So before you purchase a water purifier, it’s important to know what it can sift out from your water.

Take Hydroflux’s Wish Water Purifier, for example. It uses a 6-in-1 filter that has a pore size of around 0.001 microns (for reference, a human hair is around 70 microns in diameter). That means it’s small enough to weed out rust, bacteria, and other micropollutants, producing clean drinking water for your use.

2. Is this water purifier suitable for my family’s needs?

The second thing you need to consider: whether the water purifier you want fits your everyday lifestyle needs.

Since some water purifiers have limited temperature settings, it may not be the best choice if you need hot and cold water quickly. The Wish Water Purifier, however, comes with 5 different water temperatures: 4°C, 25°C, 40°C, 75°C, 90°C, all of which can be dispensed instantly. So whether you need semi-warm water to make formula milk, or ice cold water to quench your thirst, rest assured that these temperature settings can cater to most, if not all, needs.

The LED lights on either side of the Wish Water Purifier shine in blue, white, and red colours to indicate the temperature of the water you’re dispensing, and it also serves as a visual cue, especially during the night.

It also comes with an adjustable faucet, which means that large water jugs and tall water bottles can fit under it easily. And on top of that, it can automatically dispense water of pre-set quantities of 120ml, 550ml, and 1000ml, meaning that you don’t have to keep your finger on the button while waiting for your bottle to fill up.

3. Is this water purifier hygienic?

Most water purifiers don’t allow for any form of heat-based sterilisation, and instead rely on UV filters or electrolysis to clean the water. That can lead to mineral build-up that impedes the flow rate and affects the quality of the water. That’s not the case with the Wish Water Purifier, though, as the stainless steel internal piping and faucet allows heat-based sterilisation to occur.

The result? It flushes mineral build-up out (more on that later) and descales the internal piping. It also ensures a strong, consistent water flow, and produces water that is actually purified – which is the whole reason why you’re buying one in the first place.

A peek into the internal make-up of the Wish Water Purifier, featuring the stainless steel internal piping and tankless build

Fun fact: the water purifiers in Singapore have internal flow pipings made of plastics like PVC and LDPE – meaning that the Wish Water Purifier, with its stainless steel pipes and faucet, is truly one of a kind. This may not mean much to you at first, but what you should know is that they’re more resistant to corrosion and contamination.

4. Is this water purifier easy to maintain?

Maintaining a water purifier can be troublesome, especially if the filters require regular changes - but this isn’t the case with the Wish Water Purifier.

Using heat pasteurisation, it possesses 3 modes of self-sterilisation that you can trigger anytime you wish:

  • Whole Sterilisation (inner tubes and nozzle)
  • Circulating Sterilisation (inner tubes only)
  • Nozzle Sterilisation (nozzle only)

Coupled by its tankless build, these self-sterilising capabilities mean that regular servicing of the Wish Water Purifier is not required. All you need to do is change its filter (yes, just one!) once every 6 months. Talk about fuss free!

Nonetheless, the Wish Water Purifier comes with the assurance of lifetime warranty for all moving parts such as the nozzle, internal piping, and pasteurizer system. Should any issues pop up, give hydroflux a call and Hydroflux’s technicians will readily head down to fix them for you.

5. How big is the water purifier?

With kitchens getting smaller in size, countertop space is likewise becoming limited - which is why you should also consider the size of the water purifier you want to get.

If you’ve got your heart set on the Wish Water Purifier, don’t worry. Measuring just 16.8cm in width, it’s slim enough to be set up on your countertop without taking up too much space. Plus, with its sleek, futuristic design, it’s bound to fit right into the space, no matter what the kitchen aesthetic is.
