Unilever PureIt Excella for Safe, Clean, and Affordable Drinking Water

Thursday, April 03, 2014

Filipino homes either (1) boil their drinking water, (2) buy from water refilling stations, or (3) have their own water purifiers at home (yaman! Hehe). In short, walang directly umiinom ng water from tap because known to be unsafe to and may even cause a lot of diseases and infections na mas expensive pa ang magagastos kesa sa home purifiers, kung nagkataon. :p

May several problems, though...
- Boiling your water does not guarantee clean and safe.
- Buying water from refilling stations can be expensive, and also, you don't actually see the system all the time to guarantee that your water is really clean.
-Purifiers can be expensive, plus utilizing electricity--so imagine mo nalang your Meralco bill!

Now, trusted brand Unilever Philippines has launched PureIt here in Manila. PureIt is the largest selling in-home water purifiers in the world, starting with the Excella, a non-electric water purifier that converts tap water and even untreated water into guaranteed clean and safe drinking water

It has a nice slim design that is easy to display in your homes:

Today, Pureit helps protect more than 45 million lives, and is the world’s largest selling in-home water purifier brand, creating a global footprint across 13 countries including India, Brazil, Mexico, China, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri-Lanka, Nigeria and Kenya.

The test! Colored water with chemicals was poured in the Pureit Excella:

Which turned into clean and safe drinking water, after going through the filters:

The first level of purification consists of three simple yet valuable layers of protection where water initially passes through the Germkill Processor that disinfects the water of almost all bacteria, viruses and germs. 

Next, it passes through the Advanced Microfiber Mesh that filters out precipitates such as visible and invisible dust and dirt particles, as well as metallic impurities. Lastly, the Carbon Polisher removes pesticides, chlorine, and odor from the water, before it goes to the second level of purification.

Although it doesn't use electricity, PureIt has an indication system sa front if the filter needs to be replaced na. Also, parts are available if in stores like Handyman and Ansons.

The second level purification is performed by the Micro-charged Membrane, which further purifies the water by removing any remaining parasites or bacteria—assuring families of protection against diseases. The end product is clear, fresh, and natural-tasting water that’s free from harmful agents.

The best part? Pureit Excella is the only non-electric water purifier that meets the microbiological safety norms criteria of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the regulatory body with the most stringent standards for safe drinking water all over the world.

Note: For new PureIt Excella, wash off the "new plastic" taste by filtering 3 to 5 batches of water, or until there's no weird taste na.

At Php 5000, it's a worth it investment for every home:

Central to Unilever’s mission to make sustainable living commonplace all over the world, we are launching Pureit to provide Filipino families with access to guaranteed clean and safe drinking water, as certified by both international and local health institutions like the Department of Health and the Philippine Public Health Association,” said Brian Duruin, Pureit brand manager.
